Sharing the story, she said that she was called to shoot a movie in Nigeria. However, upon returning to Ghana on her flight, she thought to herself not to go back due to the level of disrespect she experienced there. “It was so far, and the traffic and everything. And the way sometimes they… They don’t kind of respect us, from my experience. I don’t want anybody to feel like I’m insulting anybody. When I went there, I saw the gestures towards us. But in my country, I’m a queen, but why is it that someone is treating the home person so well than me, that has travelled this far?”

She hinted that it was early on in her acting career, and that was when she made a pivotal turn in focusing on acting in Ghana and building the Kumawood industry since she was based in Kumasi.

“I sat on the flight, and I said no, if I go to Ghana, I will concentrate on Ghana. I will not come to this Nigeria again. I will concentrate on Ghana and do my work in Ghana. I know my country, Twi sells a lot.”
