Yvonne Okoro and Stephen Appiah

In August 2012, the Showbiz Honours launch event took place at the Holiday Inn Hotel in Accra, Ghana. The event’s official press release states that, “The Showbiz Honours is an award ceremony to celebrate individual icons who have, for more than five years, contributed to the arts and entertainment industry and also helped the country’s image on the international stage. It selects one icon to celebrate him or her.

For 2012, former Ghana Black Stars footballer, Stephen Appiah has been selected as the award recipient. He was chosen based on his tireless charity initiatives via his foundation StepApp and his positive role model status for youth in Ghana. According to News-One, this year’s edition of Showbiz Honours will be a festival including various activities such as football matches and the main award ceremony at the State House, Banquet Hall on the 24th of December 2012.

Ghanaian stars including Yvonne Okoro, Nadia Buari and Nicky Samonas were at the event. Nadia is a previous recipient of the Showbiz Honours accolade.
All three ladies looked so fabulous. We just had to share.

      mr sammy i have my reasons for asking if she’s nigerian ok? This is africa and dont get all smart with me, no doubt okoro is an igbo name bt has it occured to you that people share the same name with differnt meaning in africa? I can give you many example if you want. NANDI- this name is both nigerian and south african. ikEJI-this name is igbo, yoruba and even togolese i can go on and on , so please next time before you attack think twice. Thanks

    Mehn, GH woman are gorgeous! What I like about them is that they tend to have that natural African Queen look. Most of my GH friends are simply stunning!

    But…I have to keep it real o… Their men tend to leave a lot to be desired in the looks department. This Steve Appiah is a case in point! As in, I never understand it! Is it not the same people who produce such glorious looking women?? haba! Whats really good people?? Someone should help a sister to understand cos I’m genuinely not being rude! Its an observation!

    I even have a very good GH friend and she even said the same o! Her and her sisters all dated naija guys! 4 girls, 2 married to naija dudes and 1 is dating a naija dude….(I hope their dad does get a complex sef…thinking he’s the reason his daughters are running from GH men lol).

    ok, anyway! Please enlighten me, ladies! maybe I havent seen enough of the men to be fair….

    BN: please dont delete this comment! This is my honest observation! thanks and God bless xxx

    Yvonne Okoro is half Nigerian/half Ghanaian. She is a very very pretty lady. She actually reminds me of former Miss America Kenya Moore

    Yvonne Okoro is so pretty, she reminds me of a girl who I went to UWI with. I remember telling the girl that she looked like a Ghanaian actress and she didn’t know whether the comparison was good or bad. The girl was just shorter and lighter, but I do think that Yvonne is prettier. The other actresses are ok, neither here nor there in the looks department, but I guess its because they look like alot of people I know from Trinidad.
