BIO:MaameYaa Boafo Abiah is a proud  Ghanaian  and Ashanti girl raised in East Africa and Europe. Although growing up, her family in Kumasi used to playfully tease her about speaking Twi with a funny accent, nonetheless she speaks it, and speaks it well.

Trained classically as an actor, modeling happened accidentally.
“It’s been a wonderful platform to showcase who I am which first and foremost is an individual in love with God and a passionate artist”……she says….

There is nothing ‘Afrocentric’ about me- I’m 100% African.period
