Kumawood young actress, Clara Benson, known on screens as Maame Serwaa, finally has a response to critics who troll her for speaking ‘terrible English’.

The award-winning actress in an interview with Delay said she’s saddened by the way Ghanaians measure success. To the young actress, speaking good English does not put huge sums of money in one’s bank account.

“Ghanaians have a perception that if you can’t speak English it means you are unwise or if you can’t speak English you can’t be successful but I can cite so many people who, without school, have made it in life and have huge figures in their bank accounts”.

Maame Serwaa was trolled on social media a day after her press briefing contract signing with Silvanus Records for speaking very bad English. But she says she is not bothered by such things because critics and trolling come with being a celebrity.

“Maame Serwaa, can you speak good English?” pushed further by Delay, she answered, “I speak fairly good English”.

She added that she’s doing her possible best to improve her English language -hence, furthering her education at NAFTI. “If after my NAFTI education, I still cant speak English well, then I can say my family witches are the cause” she told Delay.
