“If your industry is well and kumawood stars are well paid and are even comparing Kyeiwaa to Jackie Appiah, why would Kyeiwaa relocates to the US, where she now sells Banku and Kenkey for survival?” she quizzed Papa Kumasi.

However, it is after this disclosure that some Ghanaians living in the diaspora spearheaded by Bigscout Nana Prempeh believed the statement Nana Yaa Brefo made about Kyeiwaa was uncalled for.

He further bashed Nana Yaa Brefo’s and her style of interview and added that even those who wash plates or clean toilet in abroad earn better than the likes of her and even among others who parade themselves as a journalist and sits on TV to talk.

“There is no bad job abroad. Everyone is respected no matter the kind of job he/she does. I pity you (Nana Yaa Brefo) because the day you will go on pension, get old or get sacked, you will beg before you eat.” He added

“Those you say, they clean toilets here, they are taxed (pension pay) every month and do you know the amount of money that person will be paid at the end of the month even after pension?”. He quizzed Nana Yaa Brefo
