Comedian Clemento Suarez has disclosed that the family of the late former president Jerry John Rawlings has asked him to stop imitating him.
He said he received a call from the family telling him not to mimick him for now until after he has been buried.
Clemento made this revelation when he appeared briefly on the United Showbiz programmed hosted by Nana Ama Mcbrown and monitored by YEN.com.gh on Saturday, November 14, 2020.
He was asked by McBrown to say something about the death of the late president since he was his good friend and imitated him.
Suarez responding saying that he would even have loved to speak like the late president, however, because of the warning he received from the family, he would not go further into saying anything.
He added that the gesture from the family is in order that Rawlings' death may not be trivialised in any way.
