Popular Ghanaian actress, Martha Ankomah has sued her colleague, Kwadwo Nkansah, widely known as  Lilwin for the recent unpleasant statements he made about her.

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Wezzy Empire in a recent viral video lashed out at Martha Ankomah for reportedly looking down on the Kumawood film business.

During a live broadcast, the well-known actor cum musician stated that he was informed by the acclaimed filmmaker, Frank Fiifi Gharbin about Martha’s alleged statement that Kumawood doesn’t produce any intelligent films and that she wouldn’t collaborate with actors from Kumasi.

He went on to say that when Director Gharbin tried to cast Martha Ankomah in a Kumawood show, she was believed to have stated these things. Lilwin angrily criticized Martha Ankomah, calling her alleged remarks disrespectful.

“Martha, those who are richer than you are rather humble and respect themselves a lot. Do you honestly call yourself a star? Who knows you? What do you have? I don’t even know why GTP bypassed the likes of McBrown, Mercy Asiedu and co, and made Martha Ankomah their brand ambassador. The likes of Van Vicker, Roselyn Ngissah and co, do not do these things. They even work with us. They shoot Kumawood movies. I’m still amazed that you made such statements, were you drunk?” he questioned.

Lilwin continued, “Patience Ozorkwor came to Kumasi to shoot a movie. Aki and Pawpaw, Mr. Ibu and the rest came down to shoot a movie here. But for people like you, who call yourselves refined actors; how many times do these Nigerians come to Ghana to shoot movies? They are the ones who rather send for you guys,” Lilwin stated.


Reacting to the comments by Lilwin, Martha Ankomah has taken legal action, filing a defamation lawsuit against the actor. The lawsuit, issued on Wednesday, February 14, 2024, summons LilWin to court to explain his comments. The legal move comes as a response to what Ankomah deems as damaging and defamatory statements made against her by the actor.
