Talented young Ghanaian actress Clara Benson famously known as Maame Serwaa featured on a BBC documentary where she discussed her career, charity in Ghana and other topics.
The BBC crew from the UK visited the young actress for the documentary section which occurred on Wednesday, April 11.
Speaking as a guest on the British Broadcasting Corporation’s documentary, the young actress cried for support and more opportunities for the African women, she stated that with more support and avenues the world would believe in the African woman more.
Using herself as a case study, Maame Serwaa narrated that it wasn’t easy making a mark for herself in a very well male-dominated Ghanaian movie industry. She added that even though there are several ordeals many young girls face especially in the movie industry, she refused and neglected any proposal to engage in any sort of sexual activity with any filmmaker before being offered a role in a movie.
The actress explained that it was as a result of knowing her worth, her value and talents hence, she focused on making these attributes do her talking.
The actress concluded that negativity doesn’t faze her because she’s a very positive individual hence bad talk and name calling from the media doesn’t really tickle her.
