Beautiful actress Juliet Ibrahim, one of the four actresses, who won the “Best Actress in Lead role” (English) at the maiden edition of Ghana Movie Awards, has finally taken over the possession of the SUV car that came with the award.

In a short ceremony at the premises of TV3, on Wednesday October 5, 2011, the car was presented to Juliet Ibrahim who just returned from America.

According Prince Kyegah, Events Coordinator, who revealed the news to Peacefmonline.com, they jury and the organizers decided to give the car to Juliet because she expressed interest in driving the controversial car which is supposed to be driven in turns by the four actresses. The car which was given to co-winner Roselyn Ngizzah in a similarly ceremony at the same venue some weeks back was taken from the plus size actress for Juliet.

Prince disclosed that Roselyn has driven the car for six weeks now and it was just prudent to hand it over to Juliet to also use it for some time especially now that the one year period they are supposed to use the car getting closer. Prince said their attention was drawn to that fact that Juliet Ibrahim was the first to express interest in using car in the initial stages when the others were pulling back.

It will be recalled that Juliet was very agitated when she heard that the car has been given to Roselyn because according to her, they presented the car to Roselyn without the permission of the other three co-winners so its Juliet’s time to spin the wheel.

Asked how long Juliet is supposed to drive the car, Prince said she is expected to use the car for six weeks just like Roselyn. As to what happens to the car after the six weeks, he said it is very likely actress Yvonne Okoro will take her turn. Prince stressed that it is obvious that Jackie Appiah is not interested in the car because apart from reports in the media that she has opted out, she has not even signed for the car like the other three have.

The one year period for the four winners (Roselyn Ngizzah, Jackie Appiah, Yvonne Okoro and Juliet Ibrahim) to use the car expires this December but according to Prince they may extend the time considering the fact they started using the car publicly just this August.

Four actresses: Jackie Appiah, Juliet Ibrahim, Roselyn Nggiza and Yvonne Okoro won the shared award for Best Actress in A Lead Role (English) category and as part their prize package, all four were presented with one SUV.

This generated heated debate in media and showbiz circles after the maiden edition of the award ceremony on Christmas day December 25 2010 was held and the presentation made.

The four actresses who played four friends in the award winning movie “4Play” were supposed to agree on how they were going to use the car after it was officially presented to them at the Golden Tulip Hotel in January 2011, but until August when the car was presented to Roselyn, they had not been able to come to a consensus, even though Jackie Appiah had publicly declared that she has opted out of using the car and sharing of any dividends that will accrue from the sale of the prize car.

After the launch in August, submission of movies was officially opened for interested producers to bring their movies for consideration, followed by a nomination party scheduled to take place in November at the Golden Tulip Hotel in Kumasi where nominations for the second Ghana Movie Awards will be released. The main awards night is slated for Christmas day December 25, 2011 at the Accra International Conference Center.
