When the movie industry in Kumasi was really booming and was basically at its peak, they dazzled many of us with their storylines, acting skills, comic actors and actresses, plot and setting of their productions.
Today in Ghana you cannot even say we have a proper and a functional movie industry not to even talk about the fact that the industry is booming.
Our movie industry is at its lowest form or standard and the faster people come together to salvage the situation the better. Due to the inactiveness of the industry, many of our actors and actresses who used to entertain us on our screens are now into event and television hosts, abandoning the industry altogether to sink more.
About 10 to 15 years ago when the movie industry was at the highest pedestal producing some of the greatest actors and actresses Ghana can ever boast of.
The likes of Agya Koo, Akrobeto, Lilwin, Kwaku Manu, Bill Asamoah, Kyeiwaa, Mercy Asiedu, Nana Ama Mcbrown, Vivian Jill, Emelia Brobbey, Ellen White, Portia Asare Boateng and many others time and space will not allow me to mention, that was when 10 movie productions could come to the market every day.
It was at this same time that the movie industry saw the emergence of two child actresses Clara Benson aka Maame Serwaa and Yaa Jackson. These two young girls were featured in almost every Ghanaian movie from Kumasi and every movie lover can attest to their talent and great acting prowess.
Many people envisaged what the future holds for these two girls as they grew from young girls into adulthood. We all wished them well and prayed to see them becoming responsible people in future.
Today as we all can attest to it, these two have grown into adults doing their own things. Whilst Clara Benson aka Maame Serwaa has taken acting as a full-time job and making a meaningful living out of it, being featured on BBC and a brand ambassador of many Ghanaian companies and products, Yaa Jackson has diverted into music which she is not so good at and also a true and a certified Ashawobrity.
She has proclaimed on many media platforms that she is a slay queen who wants to sleep with men so they take care of her. She has about 3 songs to her credit with the most popular one ‘Tear Rubber’.
