Early life[edit]

Jackie is the last of five children. She was born in Canada and spent her early childhood in Canada, and moved to Ghana with her mother at age 10.[4] She is popularly known by her maiden name, Appiah. Jackie married in 2005 and has one son. Jackie's father is Kwabena Appiah (the younger brother of the late Joe Appiah-a famed lawyer in Kumasi) currently residing in Toronto, Canada.


Jackie’s appearance on screen became regular when she was invited by Edward Seddoh Junior the writer of Things We Do For Love as she played the role of Enyonam Blagogee. She later took part in Tentacles, Games People Play,'Sun-city' and many other TV series.

Jackie remembers herself as being very shy the first time she went on set, "It was a Venus Film Production titled Divine Love and I had to play the role of Kate, the protagonist. I didn’t believe I did too good. I fumbled but many people did not notice it." Despite her nerves the first timer said she succeeded in impressing everyone.

Jackie says her best part was in Mummy’s Daughter by Venus Films. The film tells the story of the Bartels Family where she played the role of Princess, the daughter. "I loved how I acted and I was happy with the role I played". Jackie now sees the local film industry as having changed for the better. She thinks that others will see its ultimate success.

Jackie’s face can be seen on many billboards and TV commercials in Ghana including a GSMF advert on protection against HIV AIDS. She only received these contracts after her affair with Emmanuel Nketsia. She won the face of U.B in a promotion she did for them on TV commercials and she is currently the face of IPMC for commercials and billboards. "GSMF " was her first TV commercial.
