Early Life of Nana Ama McBrown

She was born in Kumasi to Madam Cecilia Agyenim Boateng and Mr. Kwabena Nkrumah, and became known as Felicity Ama Agyemang.

She only had to ‘change’ her name from Felicity Ama Agyemang to Nana Ama McBrown because her parents got divorced when she was very young and was adopted by her aunty, Madam Betty Obiri Yeboah and her adopted father, Kofi McBrown.

The Empress aka #Brimm is also on record to have said that she changed her name because an uncle in the USA told her the name Nana Ama McBrown would serve as a better brand than her original name, Felicity Ama Agyemang.

Nana Ama McBrown, together with her other six siblings, lived and grew up with their aunty and adopted father at Kwadaso (with the proper name spelt as “Kora daso {Calabash is placed on top}”) in Kumasi.

She has often regarded her aunty as her ‘real mother’ for the care she and her siblings had from her (the aunty).

Nana Ama McBrown’s  breakthrough in the movie industry is an interesting one that will make you go like, #Brimm!

So, the Empress answered an audition call made on radio and was initially hired as a costume artist by Miracle Films owned by Samuel Nyamekye.

And from ‘nowhere’, Nana Ama McBrown appeared and surprised everyone on set including the director, Samuel Nyamekye when she drove the KIA truck like a ‘professional armed robber’ and that was it!

She has since never looked back.

Nana Ama’s first movie, That Day, which was released in 2001 became the launching pad for her career.

Her exposed talent earned her a spot in the TV series, Tentacles which was shown on GTV, the nation’s Television.

Asoreba (church member)” — a complete Twi movie directed by Samuel Nyamekye in 2007, which co-starred Agya Koo and Mercy Asiedu was what shot Nana Ama McBrown to instant fame.

Omar Sheriff Captan, a Ghanaian actor with whom Nana Ama McBrown co-starred in some movies, was at some point dating the Empress but the two somewhat publicly did not admit nor deny that.

After her relationship with Okyeame Kwame fell apart, she moved on and dated Nana Wiafe Akenteng of Asante Hemang in the Ashanti Region of Ghana sometime in 2006.

Unfortunately, that ‘marriage’, too, collapsed.
