Nana Ama McBrown who is considered one of the versatile actresses in Ghana revealed that she got her nickname on set shooting her first movie under Miracle Films.

She was given the role of a driver of an armed robbery gang alongside the likes of Fred Amugi, Santo, etc..

Fred Amugi who was at that time the biggest actor in Ghana was asked by the director(Miracle Films) on set to give her(Mcbrown) a character name in the movie.

The Actress/television personality said she was expecting a nice name to be given to her but to her surprise, Fred Amugi gave her a name that to date she’s not proud of.

Guess the name… Nana Ama Mcbrown said Fred gave her ‘CONDOM’ as the character name for the role.

He is currently signed on NB Records and they are about to release another single titled Otɔlɛ meaning hustle, not long after the release of his hit song “Fakye-Forgive”. This new song is produced by KinDee.
