It’s been a long time since we’ve seen renowned Kumawood Veteran actress Kumiwaa, also known as ‘Sapofo.’
But Veteran actress Kumiwaa has finally emerged to reveal her behind-the-scenes story, and it is devastating. Naomi Kumiwaa Banafo, as she is known in real life, appeared on Nana Ama Mcbrown’s show to discuss how she was humiliated and arrested for drug trafficking in the United States while knowing nothing about it.
She noted some men contacted her to shoot a movie with them in the United States, but they ended up depositing cocaine in her luggage.
According to her, she had no knowledge of what those men did until she was busted at the airport for drug trafficking.
Kumiwaa noted she was jailed over a year where she showed up in court once in every month until she was proven innocent and finally deported to Ghana.
” I was in shock when it dawned on me that the guys had used me for their dubious ways. I was placed in jail and made to report in court once every month. After one year and a month, I reported to court and I was told that investigations conducted revealed that I was actually innocent and will be sent to Ghana after a week. I cried my heart out like a baby,” the veteran actress recounted on The Journey Show with Abena Ghana on Adom Tv.
