Ghanaian singer-songwriter and actress, Bertha Bridget Kankam aka Yaa Yaa will soon rock the big stage again, not for what she’s mainly recognized for, but as an actress.
The ‘Life’ hitmaker, will be starring in Uncle Ebo Whyte’s play dubbed ”Special Delivery” as one of the four main characters. Yaa Yaa will play the role of an alcoholic mother, whose parents did not allow her to marry the love of her life.
According to the playwright, Yaa Yaa was granted entry into the cast, merely for attending its audition and not for her fame. For him, it was an indication that despite being a recording artist, she was passionate about being part of the play. ”There are people who appear before me in auditions and I don’t ask them any questions, their presence alone tells me something and that’s what happened with Yaa Yaa”, James Ebo Whyte disclosed.
Speaking to Yaa Yaa on her new gig, she retorted;
”I am really honored to be part of the Roverman Family… Learning so much already and I’m really eager to experience how far I can be stretched to bring out all the creativity inside of me. Fans should get ready for more adventures with me as I explore other fields other than music, say drama? Dance? Who knows, maybe modeling too”, she joked. Pressing on, she shed more light on her hit song ‘Life’ saying, ”The video will be released soon, my fans should also watch out for that”.
Yaa Yaa is known for well received songs such as ‘Dumb Drum’, ‘Incredible’, ‘Kae’, ‘Koryor’, etc., and her most recent one, ‘Life’ which is doing well on the various blogs, websites and radio stations across the nation.
Congratulations to Yaa Yaa and may this be a stepping stone to higher grounds where there’s a lot more to experience.
