She explained that she had always been a bread seller with her mother and did not want a role that was going to make her sell bread again,

"You know I actually declined taking the role Serwaa. I told him [Director Ivan Quashigah] that I won't do YOLO," she revealed.

The actress, who has since become a household name in Ghana's entertainment industry, explained that during the audition process, she set her sights on portraying Emily, Cyril's girlfriend, in the YOLO series.

"When we were doing the auditions, I was catching one role – I wanted to play the role of Emily. But I was told to act as Serwaa, and I didn't want [that role] because I was selling bread for my mother even before coming to Accra, so why would I be doing the same in [the] movie?"
