Nothing wrong with switching accents as an actor – Ama K Abebrese defends Leila Djansi.

Published

No nonsense Ghanaians have blasted filmmaker Leila Djansi following her remark that her African accent has cost her a lot as far as her career is concerned.

Thus, Leila Djansi in interview on Daybreak Hitz with Andy Dosty most recently revealed that her African accent has made her lost uncountable number of jobs as well as movie roles.

But to the voice of Ghanaians especially those on social media, Leila’s comment is simply uncalled for and unfortunate considering the fact that a lot of Africans not excluding Lupita Nyong’o are making it big with the very accent she’s disrespecting.

But actress Ama K Aberese to the rescue of Leila Djansi has posited that there’s nothing wrong with what Leila said adding that she believes actors must be versatile to better enable their acting prospects.

“I totally understand where Leila is coming from because the reality of the matter is when you are in LA, Nollywood, sometimes you get that cast profile and they say American or UK accent or we looking for someone with a Jamaican or Ghanaian accent and I have been to auditions like that, for her as a director to say that, there is nothing wrong with it”, she told Doreen Avio in an interview.

Nana Addo Saved Me When I Had Accident— Samini Reveals

Published

Dancehall artiste Samini is still trying all he can to convince his loyal fans and Ghanaians on why he decided to go the Nana Addo way.

He says he saved him, not directly but he saved him when he had an accident.

According to him, he was cycling all the way from Sogakope to the Mole National park and had the accident and could have had serious lifetime injuries had it not been for one of the ambulances Nana Addo released some time ago.

“The other day I was cycling and I had a little accident and we actually had a designated ambulance with us, We cycling all the way from Sogakope tot the mole National park, I had to stop at Dambai. The rationale here is that I don’t know when ambulances like that so we could have one designated to us”

He says that is why he decided to campaign for the NPP because he has benefited from some of their initiatives.

“But for that ambulance, I would have had a serious problem and I have a scar to show but there was an ambulance and it took care of me right there and then before they took me to the hospital. The ambulance is something I’ve experienced it and so I know if something is happening in some remote corner at least one ambulance is going to get there.”
