Please help me own a house – Adowa Smart pleads with Ghanaians
Adwoa Smart

Veteran Ghanaian actress, Adwoa Smart, has made some revelations about her private life, and she hopes Ghanaians will come to her aid to fulfil her long life dream of owning a house. 

Belinda Naa Ode Oku, with the showbiz name Adwoa Smart, has been acting in movies for so long that she has become an integral part of the history of the Creative Arts industry. In an interview with Accra FM, Adowa Smart revealed her dark childhood and how she continues to struggle years after becoming famous.

 “I have really been through a lot, especially from my childhood. I have been through so many things. I grew up as an only child… My elder brother died before I met him… It was my grandmother who took care of me. Then my aunt (may her soul rest in peace) came for me to go and live with her. Then she set me up with a trading business… so I used to hawk all over town. 

Through this business, I met a woman called Auntie Rose (may she rest in peace). She sold oranges at the Kaneshie market. She said I was interesting. So she would take me to see Maame Dokono (Grace Omaboe). During the auditions, she asked me to dance. Immediately I did, she took a liking to me and said she would take me as her daughter,” she recounted with eyes full of tears. 

Upon being asked what Ghanaians should do for her, Adwoa Smart replied that she would love to own a house. She said she wants to help people off the streets, but her room in her family house cannot accommodate them. She further stated that all her travels were sponsored, and she is not as comfortable as people think.

“To be honest, staying in a family house is not easy… I had a child, but it died. So I don’t have any children. I am not married. I don’t have a house. By the grace of God, I am alive, not dead. 

The very thing on my heart is to own a house. So that I can see something profitable from all my toils. I couldn’t voice out because I was ashamed… I want a house. If I get a house, I can also help someone.”
