The best director of the year at the 6th Africa Movie Academy Awards Shirley Frimpong-Manso with her rich experience and love for the Ghanaian film industry noticed the industry had very limited faces on our screens and these are the same faces we have staring at in different films and thus contributing to the stunt growth of the industry. This inspired the triple threat filmmaker Shirley to design the “NEXT SCREEN STAR” program, which will unearth talents, groom and train them to a professional status for the benefit and growth of the Ghanaian film industry.
