Suzzy Williams was a Ghanaian actress who crossed over to Nollywood with the intent of being a star, but tragedy struck even before Susan's breakthrough role hit the scene, and Suzzy would never witness her rise to stardom. Though Suzzy had already featured in seven Nollywood flicks, her latest, War For War produced by Edwin Deraco and marketed by Deraco Productions (The Bank Manager, Dollars From Germany, The Investigator) was intent on making Suzzy a Nollywood star. Suzzy was signing a deal to appear in a couple of other Deraco Productions. Suzzy was killed about a month ago in a ghastly motor accident in Ghana. The actress was in a car with her new boyfriend, a member of the Liberian R&B group, Soul Black.
