The University of Cape Coast (UCC) has honoured young Ghanaian actress Clara Benson, popularly known as Maame Serwaa.
The teen actress was awarded for her tremendous contributions to the Ghana movie industry in recent years.
Maame Serwaa was honoured during the premier of the television series ‘One Over Eight’ held at UCC on October 20, 2018.
The upcoming TV series was directed by Miss Hannah Acquah and produced by B. Bright Wirekoh.
She was presented with a plaque as recognition for her contributions in the local movie industry despite her young age.
The citation reads: “We honour you this day as one of the big six celebrities on the occasion of ‘One Over Eight’ Tv series premier dubbed.
“Your contribution to the showbiz industry in Ghana, the immense discipline you have exhibited over the years, in and outside your profession has been highly recognized and appreciated.
“Your unwavering moral standards and influence have won the admiration of all Ghanaians especially we the students of the University of Cape Coast".
“It is refreshing to know that Ghana can still boast of stars whose underlying responsibility of social role modelling is not tanned by the pressure of spotlights and splendour of red carpets. We hope that you are motivated enough to continue and improve your efforts in uplifting the name of Ghana.”
Maame Serwaa is one of the budding actresses in the country, and has also starred in a couple of movies as the lead character despite being a teenager.
