The actress revealed how big a challenge it is living in the US if you cannot speak English and advised that staying in Ghana is better because of the language barrier.

“If you can’t speak English there, you will suffer,” she said.


Kyeiwaa, whose real name is Rose Akua Ataa Mensah has informed her fans that she is back in Ghana for good, having spent almost 10 years in the USA after her career took a nosedive.

The veteran star whose fame skyrocketed following her remarkable performance in the Kyeiwaa sequels which ultimately earned her the moniker of the same name, said she is back to provide different waves of entertainment to her fans.

Her first interview upon arrival captured the actress saying the collapse of the movie industry made her travel abroad to seek other possibilities.

She explained that she did menial jobs like dishwashing and selling food at an eatery to make ends meet when she touched down in the USA to look for greener pastures after the vibrancy of Kumawood dimmed.

“It difficult getting white colour jobs to do in State, hence the menial jobs are easy to come by, there is no shame in working in a restaurant and washing dishes as I did.

I was fortunate to get help from a woman who asked me to come work at her restaurant and I’m grateful for her,” she disclosed.
