Anyone who watched the movies “Kada River” and “Once upon a family” will attest to the fact that Fella Makafui is indeed an actress worth celebrating. The young actress made her mark and came into the limelight with “You only live once” (YOLO), a television series that graced the screens of television lovers. In YOLO, she played the role of “Serwa” a villager who hawked the streets selling bread.
Since then, many have wondered who this youngster is and where she came from, some have been asking if she really “that a villager or it is a role she played out so well”. Others have tried to dig out what she does when not in front of the cameras.
Information about Fella’s childhood is scanty, however, she is believed to have been born on 19 August 1995 in Anfoega Akukome in the Volta Region of Ghana.
She had her Senior High education at the Kpando Senior High school after which she continued to the University of Ghana.
She is said to have explored the world of modelling before jumping into the popular waters of acting. Some of the movies she featured in before becoming popular are “Swings”, “Chaskele” and “Kanda River”.
Fella has undertaken some Philanthropic works to her credit. Through her foundation, the Fella Makafui Foundation, she has helped the renovation of the community centre in her town where she hails from, and then also supported the Accra Psychiatric Hospital. Fella made headlines when in collaboration with GH One TV, she donated 400 exercise books, 20 desks and other items to the Yikurugu school.
Concerning Awards, the young actress had had her fair share of what she has worked for and deserves. In the year 2016, Fella was recognized as the “Most Promising Actress” at the “City People Entertainment Awards”. In the same year, she received the same award at the “Golden Movie Awards”. Two years later her generous works were recognized by the “Kings University College” during their awards and dinner night.
Without doubt, she has shown the way that young people can also make a difference in their own lives and the lives of others by extending a helping hand with the little that they can.
