“I Regret Getting Married, I Got Married Too Early” – Gifty

Ex-Big Brother Naija housemate, Gifty Powers, has in a new interview opened up about her life after Big Brother, acting career, marriage and other things about her.


My grandfather is from Obosi in Anambra State. He is a Reverend Father and a barrister. He married my grandmother who is partly Liberian and Sierra Leonean, and they gave birth to my mum before they got divorced. I am my parents’ first daughter, but I’m the second child. I grew up in Ghana, Accra precisely.


For my post-elementary education, I attended St. Theresa International School, Accra, Ghana. For my tertiary education, I attended University of Legon, Ghana.

I first knew that I wanted to become an actress at the age of 15, but my mum once told me that at the age of five, I used to apply her lipstick and stand in front of her mirror to act.

However, I joined the movie industry in an absurd manner. I can’t remember the exact year but on a hot Saturday, I drove in my friend’s car to buy some things. While driving, someone hit the car and I became angry.

He apologised and introduced himself as a movie producer. He gave me his complimentary card but still I insisted that he fixed the car. The following week, I went to a location and I was given a sub-lead role.
