On a set at Mankranso, a small town and capital of the Ahafo Ano South-West district in the Ashanti region, McBrown says she had to replace Selassie Ibrahim who was casted for a kitchen scene in a village but was not available.

She told Captain Smart on the Maakye show Monday, March 13, 2023, that “there was no female available on the set at that moment, and they asked me to try it and see. When I entered the kitchen, I prayed to God in my head that ‘God, I’ve been hungry for many years, please, see me through with this’ and that was it.”

Nana Ama gained prominence for her role in the television series, Tentacles, before her mainstream success following her role in the Kumawood movies ‘Asoreba’ and ‘Kumasi Yɔnkoɔ.

She has starred in many movies including those in the local dialect and English as well as Nollywood.

She later joined UTV and hosted United Showbiz until her latest move to Onua Group of the Media General family.
