Martha Ankomah Demands GHC5 Million Compensation From LilWin In Defamation Suit: Actress Martha Ankomah has reportedly filed a lawsuit against Kumawood actor Kwadwo Nkansah, popularly known as LilWin.

This comes after LilWin’s recent attacks on the actress for showing reluctance and declining an offer to work with Kumawood, among other issues.

About a week ago, LilWin condemned Martha’s earlier statements during some media interviews, which sought to downplay the storylines of recent Kumawood movies compared to the Agya Koo era. He was captured in a viral video using some words that have been described as harsh and unprintable towards the actress.

Martha Ankomah, earlier in an interview with Hitz FM in 2017 and later with Accra FM in 2023, downplayed the storylines of recent Kumawood movies compared to the Agya Koo era.

“I love their storylines and they used to have really good movies like Kumasi Yonkuo, but of late, most of their movies portray witchcraft and that does not motivate me to shoot with them,” she stated in her interview with Hitz FM.

However, the topic surrounding Martha Ankomah’s statements popped up while LilWin was slamming Dr. Likee’s camp after one of his [LilWin] actresses defected to the stables of Akabenezer.

He said: “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?

On February 15, 2024, Martha Ankomah, through her lawyers, sued LilWin.

In a copy of the writ of summons, the plaintiff (Martha) is praying to an Accra High Court for damages in the sum of 5 million Ghana cedis for the defamatory statements made by the defendant (LilWin). She is also demanding compensatory damages for the dent in her reputation.
