Shirley Frimpong Manso Is Not My Enemy – Film Director Debunks Rumours

Movie director Leila Djansi has stated that there is

absolutely no bad blood between herself and her

fellow award-winning filmmaker, Shirley


The tough competition exhibited among the two

by their productions has fueled speculations

that they have some rivalry that has degenerated

into enmity.

Indeed, though they are in the same industry

they have never been spotted together until they

were announced as co-winners for the Best

Director Award category at the recent Ghana

Movie Awards.

Both directors had to mount the stage to receive

the award which was presented by renowned

actress Akorfa Ejiene Asiedu.

Shirley, in receiving the award, announced she

was privileged to be on stage with Leila while

the 'Northern Affair' director also congratulated


Media reports after the show described their

gesture as a 'melodrama reconciliation' to bury

the hatchet.

Leila, however, told NEWS-ONE that she had no

issues with Shirley. She said they were not

enemies and as such the issue about

reconciliation was neither here nor there.

"We are not enemies. I don't really understand

why somebody will say that we are," she added.

Leila has to her credit some very good films

including the recently produced 'Northern

Affair', 'Sinking Sands' and 'Ties That Bind'/em>.

Shirley also recently premiered her latest film,

'Potomanto'. Some of her previous award-

winning movies include 'A Sting In A Tale', 'Life

and Living It', '6 Hours To Christmas', 'Adams

Apple' and 'Checkmate'.
