CELEBRITY GIST: Ghanaian Star Actress, Jackie Appiah who is of Asante descent (Ashanti), has revealed in an interview why she can’t fluently express herself in her mother tongue (Twi).
Jackie Appiah is from the Ashanti Region of Ghana, but due to the fact she was born and raised in Canada, many see her to be someone who has lost touch with her local dialect, (Akan) twi but the gorgeous actress have come out to say that is not the case.
In her own words, here’s what Ms. Jackie had to say:
“I can speak twi, I understand but I’m not able to flow as others do, maybe due to my upbringing. I have a Canadian background so that could be one of the reasons.”
“Another thing is that I mingle with people who speak English and that also is not helping me but don’t worry I know my roots. For all you know, I might produce a twi movie one of these days,” she said in an interview with Highlifetoday in the U.S.
Jackie Appiah is a single mother of one child (a son). She married Peter Agyemang in 2005, but her marriage crashed few years later.
