Then and now: 4 Ghanaian child actors who are all grown-ups now

It seems just like yesterday these Ghanaian actors were born into fame while they were kids, but currently, they are all fully blown men and women.

These persons have over a long period of time managed to entertain Ghanaians with some popular characters on TV or in films.

Asides from that, they have managed to stay relevant, and are remembered even after so many years as a result of their unique roles played in each movie they starred in.

While some of them grew up and continued to excel in their acting career, others ventured into other interests.

Let’s take a look at some Ghanaian child actors and how they currently look like.

Maame Serwaa

Clara Benson, popularly known as Maame Serwaa, started her career as a child actress in the Kumawood movie industry at a very young age.

Her late mother’s role as welfare manager in the industry influenced the start of her career as she accompanied her to every set she visited.

The young lady is now 21 years old. She has grown to be incredibly beautiful and continues to be the favourite of many.

She is currently a student of Knutsford University College where she has been awarded a four-year degree scholarship.
