One of the richest American actresses Tiffany Haddish has said she is ready to be a mother now.

By Amie T Camara

However, when life was hard for her at the age of 21, she sold all her eggs for money. She is still hopeful of being called, ‘mother’ soon.

According to her, there was a time she really wanted money and the only way out was to sell her eggs.

But since her hope of having a baby is 95% uncertain, adoption is her last option.

F-PAG: Congress For Change With Essa Jallow, elected president of F-PAG for the next 3 years

Dozens of established filmmakers joined with the National Center for Arts and Culture on Saturday the 5th of November at the hotel school Congress organized by Film Producer’s Association Gambia “F-PAG” to address problems and election of new executives.

The Gambia’s Film Industry has not been evolving as it supposed to be since its inception in the 1960s with the establishment of The Gambia Film Unit in 1967. Film Producers Association of The Gambia, known as F-PAG, was created in 2014 with its primary objective to bring filmmakers together to foster collaboration and accelerate the growth and development of Film Industry in The Gambia.

While more than half of film producers in The Gambia are still striving to survive, Gambia movie industry continues to struggle and out of excitement, many film producers  aren’t yet ready to give up.

The Congress was chaired by the Public relations and communications Manager Ousman Kebbeh  who welcome everyone and make known of his support for F-PAG. Moment of silence was taken for the Fallen heroes of the organization, Isatou Jallow and Ebou Waggeh after which the floor was given to the outgoing President Zaidy Jallow.

“I am extraordinarily grateful for the unprecedented support from our industry partners and the talented and concerned members of the movie industry ,” FPAG outgoing president Zaidy Jallow said. “The value of their recognition of the unique importance of movie to our communities, culture, and their support before Congress of the unique needs of movie producers in this country cannot be underestimated. It was an honor for me to be given the position, am happy that I was able to extend what I can do  for film producers through F-PAG.”

He further emphasize on how film are great unifiers where our nation’s most talented storytellers showcase their cinematic accomplishments. To Zaidy, every aspiring filmmaker, actor, and producer dreams of bringing their art to the silver screen, is an irreplaceable experience that represents the pinnacle of filmmaking achievement in The Gambia. These was later followed by the amendment of the constitution which will guide the actions of the new Executives and F-PAG members.

There was no bipartisan support for the new constitution, which had been set for a vote on Saturday before the Democratic election that follows while talks continue. In contrast there was broad support for the amended constitution that will unlocked alot of help for film makers to get through the 3 years until another amendment or change will be made.

There can be plenty more to come. So maybe it’s too soon to panic over what’s happening and the low ratings of struggles,since new executives are elected, the industry still hopes the  leaders are right: The Gambia theater might still need more help.

Questions and answers were encouraged as well as opinions and contributions throughout the Congress. With the proliferation of streaming and other dark options, some have wondered about whether movie production as a will in The Gambia will survive. But proponents — and major contributors and their allies — also point to the profit motive of change and improvement as their main goal.

Nominations was made, and the Elected president Essay Jallow, behind a dozen microphones, he waved to the crowd and took a leap into history as he declared his bid for the Democratic nomination for presidency of the Film Producer’s Association Gambia.

Essa Jallow, the elected president of FPAG made known that, the dramatic language of the plea—“our movies cannot get to be played on TV stations without us being charge or asked to be in percentage” . He couldn’t help but recall a peculiar truth about the movie business. That is, it is usually dying of something. In fact, he made it clear that  morbidity is an old habit in The Gambia Movie industry. The trick to get Gambia movies having their ways in the TV stations to him is to know what is really an existential threat and to have that way in all the way through without any hindrances or unnecessary charges will be his first goal.

Yamou Mbaye becoming the first woman to be elected as Vice President of F-PAG said, she feel happy and grateful for the position given and will try all that she can to serve the purpose. For the first time, a woman has been elected Vice President of  FPAG, it is an history  made and blazed a trail for future generations in the industry to follow.

Fatou S. Bojang is one of Gambia’s favorite Actresses.

Afrinity Production draw cognizance to Fatou S. Bojang, a 38 year-old Gambian actress currently working with the National Accreditation & Quality Assurance Authority (NAQAA) as an Accounts Officer. She is an Accountant by profession and on top of that, a part-time Actor.

Fatou is one of the most talented actors in the Gambia, isn’t she? Apart from that, she comes from a very humble background and well known for her Mandinka movie role in AISHA where she caught everyones attention.

She was born and raised in Sukuta, West Coast Region. She did both her primary and junior
secondary education in Sukuta. For high school, she proceeded to Nusrat Senior Secondary School after which she went to Management Development Institute (MDI) to enroll in a Professional Accountancy Course call Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT). The Actress also did a short-term training programme in Financial Accounting in India.


The Actress had a classic story that defines the phrase ‘motivat and rise above all odds’. In her teen years, she was living in a circle of motivation and she was very happy and there was something charming about her passion for change.

Fatou is into acting because of her passionate for it, even though the Gambia movie industry is “working-in-progress” and one can’t entirely rely on it. Despite that struggle, she can’t let go as she is so much in love with acting.

What inspired was her is a friend and was during her younger age. “He lost his mother at a very tender age and he was staying with his stepmother. The kind of mistreatment this boy went through was unbearable. As young as he was, he was doing all the domestic chores in that house. Despite his half siblings being there, they do nothing. He was subjected to all kinds of insults and harassments. Sometimes, he goes to school barefooted with no lunch or money. To cut it short, he went through hell. If I still recall what this friend of mine went through, I always cry. The saddest thing was, after all that he was subjected to, he didn’t survive it, so he passed away.”

“From that point on, I was inspired to act to bring out the different roles in educating others out there who are doing the same thing and to make a difference in whatever small or big way I can contribute”. She said.

When asked why acting, she said acting is something she love doing and that where her passionate comes from. Besides that, she draw attention on the important roleactors in our societt as they educate, entertain and above all, inform on how, when and what do in different situations.”Actors put into visual, real-life stories and experiences that society can actually learn from and at the same time getting entertained”, she elaborated.

“The saddest thing is, in The Gambia most people see us (Actors) as jokers or clowns and they do not take us seriously like our neighbouring countries do. We are not viewed in high regards as citizens who have the potential to contribute to the development of the country socially and economically. So far, what is keeping us going in the film sector in The Gambia is the passion/love for the art itself and nothing more, as it’s not paying enough at all.”

“For the wider world, most people tend to judge you based on the roles you play as an actor
instead. When you feature as a prostitute, a drunkard, an arm robber, heartless or cruel person, most people think that is your true nature not knowing that you are just trying to
perform a role that you were given to play”, she lamented.

Fatou looks up to the following people;
Malafi Manneh of Bolong Daala Drama and Cultural Troupe for being a person at his age, still able to dance, sing and his role interpretation is just amazing.And for being there for so many years, showing so much love for the industry.

Jennifer Lynn Lopez or J.Lo of Hollywood, for her comportment, fashion and role interpretation.

Monica Davies, who is also her best friend and also for being an outstanding actress and does her work to expectation. Furthermore, they have been friends for more than a decade now and all that she had shown me is love, care and sisterhood. “I commend her for always being there for me. She is one person I can say openly that we are very close,” she said.

Her professional goal is to boost and place the Gambia movie industry to the limelight through lots of collaborations with outside countries to create that market for the Gambian content in the wider world. Also capacity building in
forms of seminars, training workshops, etc. to enhance the Gambian Cinema to be able to create jobs for the youth.
