Ghanaian Kumawood actress Rose Akua Attaa Mensah, popularly known as Kyeiwaa Tutugyagu, a name she got from the role she played in the popular Kyeiwaa movie, said she had the role because of how well she chewed bread and oil in some minor roles in other movies.
“When I played the role of witch in some movies I had starred in, I was given bread stuffed with red oil. If you saw me chewing the bread, you could tell that I was serious about the acting work. This made Danfo BA see me as the best candidate for the Kyeiwaa role. “
The funny actress, who returned to Ghana after travelling to seek greener pastures in America, said the minor roles she played prepared her for the big role of a lead character in the Kyeiwaa movie after Danfo BA Movie Productions struggled to find the right person for the role.
After the movie’s success, the actress said she gained huge popularity as people pointed fingers at her wherever she went while others gave her accolades because of how well she played her role in the movie.
She added that her movie journey had been difficult because she has struggled with producers and people who were envious of her success and popularity.
