Abebrese who also double as a Child Safety Icon for Safe Child Ghana,

public and all stakeholders to help improve the safety of Ghanaian


Ama K. Abebrese in an interview with Freda Owusuaah-Bioh on J.life

FM's Working Rhythms (Mid-Morning Show) said, most children in Ghana

are seriously at risk of getting injured or perishing from certain

simple safety loopholes that have been left unattended to.

She was optimistic that, the safety of Ghanaian Children can be improved.

"It's not a one man thing, it's fairly not just a one charity thing,

it's definitely all of us. We hear horry stories a lot of times when I

talk to the NGO who run Safe Child Ghana, they go to communities where

children are affected or in trouble to provide aid, but I think we can

do better if we all come on-board."

Premiering of Double Cross in Sunyani

"The reception of the premiering of Double Cross was beautiful, it was

wonderful, officially that was my first time in Sunyani, I love the

environment, the people, and you guys don't have dumsor which clearly

we are suffering from here in Accra. and one thing I loved being there

and just seeing the environment because at the end of time, If wasn't

for my work, I wouldn't get to probably travel to many places and

Sunyani is one of the places where I've been, I went there and say

like wow….the reception was great, I have to come back often its

just that this job tends to keep me concentrating in Accra," she


Ama who has been in the industry for about 15 years now have about 5

and 3 yet to be release projects which are coming out this year.

Speaking on challenges in the industry;

"I have been very blessed, I came to this country with obviously

having some experience under my belt and it's been wonderful for me,

obviously some of the roles I would like to get are not readily

available but to be honest, I'm a working actor and always have to be

thankful that I'm able to have work to do, so I have few complaints."
