In the T.V series "Things We Do for Love" little did one know that Enyonam (Jackie Agyeman) had a lot to offer in the movie industry. Jackie who was discovered by the script writer of "Things We Do for Love" Edward Seddoh, after she won an award in acting have added a lot to the industry after she joined some years back.

After "Things We Do for Love" she later took part in Tentacles, Games People Play and many other TV series. She has been in acting for barely six years now, with "Things We Do for Love" being her first screen appearance. She is faced with so many challenges with some being producers chasing her here and there with scripts when she is on location shooting a movie. She says they turn to forget the pressure of the artiste and are so much concerned about their movie.

Jackie went off the screens to the States to deliver his son two years ago, asked why the States she was fast to answer that; "I was born in Canada and so I believe that when I deliver outside my child will also enjoy the same privileges I had". Jackie is one of the youngest actresses’ and a mother Ghana has produced. When it comes to acting Jackie is a good example. According to Jackie her interest in acting started when she was 12 years old at the Action Chapel where she belonged to a group known as ’Representatives’

Jackie remembers herself as being very shy the first time she went on set, "It was a Venus Film Production titled ’Divine Love’ and I had to play the role of Kate, the protagonist. I didn-t believe I did too well. I fumbled but many people did not notice it", she said. That was obviously not easy for a first timer but Jackie said she gave a good account of herself and succeeded in impressing everyone.

Currently she is back and has taken acting as a full time carrier. She is the face of I.P.M.C and models for some fashion houses in Ghana. Today, Jackie’s face could be seen on many bill boards and TV commercials. She won the face of U.B in a promotion she did for them. Jackie is often cast alongside popular Ghanaian film actors Van Vicker and Nadia Buari in romantic lead roles. Some of her popular movies includes; Divine love, Beyoncé, The President’s Daughter, Mummy’s Daughter

Jackie was nominated together with equally good actresses in Nigeria for the Best Supporting Actress in the resent Africa Movie Academy Awards (AMAA) in Nigeria. The final list for her category had Noelie Funmi Agbendegba (Abeni) Republic of Benin, Jackie Agyeman (The President’s Daughter) (Beyonce) - Ghana and Ireti Doyle (Sitanda)

The movie "Beyonce - The President’s Daughter" was chosen and she won the award for that category. To her she never knew she couldn’t grab that award but yet her hardwork proved her wrong. Her expectations now is to get back to school to study law and then enroll in an acting school to add more to her existing talents.

Jackie acts in English and that is what she enjoys doing since she is not good in the local language. Her best movie so far is "Royal Battle" and says she hopes the best is yet to come.

She got married in 2005 and has a bouncy baby boy by name Damien. "I am happy to be a mother, having him was the happiest moment in my life". Her husband, who knows what time it is, as Jackie puts it, supports her so much in her acting carrier together with a nanny who takes care of the baby when she is on location. Her plans for the future are to see better movies on our screens and the industry attaining different heights as time goes on.

Jackie was born Dec 5 1983, and is the last of five children Yvonne, Mansa, Abrefi and Kofi to Mr. George Appiah and Miss Janet Owusu. Jackie is grateful to her numerous fans for their loyalty.

Otasowie means evening life is better than morning life. There is an error in your “evening life is better than evening life”?

Sokari doesn’t mean joy. Joy is Biobela. Go to the village and ask the meaning of the name.
