Kyeiwaa accused of disgracing Ghana

Ghanaian local actress, Rose Mensah popularly

known as Kyeiwaa has been accused by Isaac

Rockson, Public Relations Officer for Kumawood

and Akoben Movie Awards of disgracing Ghana.

At a press conference held in Kumasi by Mr.

Paul Adjei of Paul Gee Productions on 6th

March for the press to interact with Patience

Ozokwor aka Mama G, who was in Kumasi to

shoot a movie, Mama Africa; Rose Mensah who

was addressing the press said it is a dream come

true for her, starring in the same movie with

the multiple award-winning Nigerian actress. She

said many people have been questioning her

ability to act with English speaking actors

because of her inability to speak the queen's


The comic actress stated that due to the prayers

of her fans, God has been good to her and the

doors have opened for her to work with one of

the best actresses in Africa.

"People were crying for me asking how I was

going to act with this woman who has featured

in over 200 movies because of her experience. I

thank God for this dream come true because

now people will be surprised when they see how

I acted with her.

This statement made by Kyeiwaa was described

by the PRO of Kumawood and Akoben Movie

Awards, Isaac Rockson as disdain of integrity.

According to him, "why should Kyeiwaa wait for

an international actress to come to Ghana and

work with her before she realizes she is good

for the international market? If her values and

works do not lift her to that international

standard, what will Ozorkwo's one movie do for


These questions by him distracted the press

conference hosted at Ceeta-kel Hotel in Asokwa

for some minutes as the media present kept

discussing the importance of his criticisms. Dave

Hammer, MC for the night said those questions

raised by Rockson should be asked when radio

and TV stations are reviewing entertainment

stories but not when they convened to interact

with Patience Ozokwor, the Enugu State born


Despite the MCs effort to prevent answers for

Mr. Rockson's questions, the director for the

yet-to-be-released movie, Mama Africa, Director

Bentum aka Director 1 said everybody works to

meet some people in their lives to realize their

career is growing.

"There are popular footballers in Ghana, but

they all dream to play for an international team

someday. Kyeiwaa is now happy that she is going

international because she is working with

international actors. What we know is that most

at times is the English actors who work with

them, but now the Kumawood actors have had

the opportunity to work with them as well. She

is happy that, she being an illiterate has had the

opportunity to work with glamour actress

because it rarely happens." Director Bentum


Isaac Rockson who spoke to Zionfelix.com

complained bitterly that "why should you

disgrace Ghana to foreigners because you are

working for money?"

'Mama Africa 'is Paul Gee produced movie which

features Patience Ozokwor, Kwadwo Nkansah Lil

Win, Akrobeto, Maame Serwaa, Rose Mensah and

other Kumawood actors.
