Ghanaian teen actress, Clara Benson, also known as Maame Serwaa and Kumawood have been featured in a BBC News Documentary. The documentary which is known as ‘What’s New’ shedded more light on the Kumawood movie industry as well as the life of the young and talented actress who is a first year student of Knutsford University College.
Watch the video below:
Although the use of Twi is dominant in these movies and therefore face a lot of drawbacks, actors like Agya Koo, Akrobeto, Nana Ama McBrown, Kyeiwaa, Akyere Bruwaa, Kwadwo Nkansah(Liwin) and the likes have thrived so hard to see the small industry which started in Kumasi flourish. I hope this exposure will enable our movie and creative industry as a whole, gain grounds outside Africa.
