‘I Was Treated Like A Kid On Board A Plane’- Yaw Dabo

Diminutive actor, Yaw Dabo has recounted an almost embarrassing moment he encountered in an aeroplane because of his height.

Actress cum TV host, Nana Ama McBrown hosted some diminutive Ghanaian actors on her TV’s United Showbiz program and that was when Yaw Dabo made the funny revelation.

He also revealed how a white folk mistook him for a kid and started ordering him around at the airport.

He said:

“The man walked to me and said, ‘Stand up, stand up. Go and sit here’,” he said amidst laughter from the host, Nana Ama Mcbrown and the other actors.

“I looked at him with a straight face. Then he said ‘oh baby boy, go and sit here.’ I didn’t utter a word.”

He continued: “I was coming from abroad with an Emirate aircraft. As a ritual, they serve the children before the adults. All I saw was being presented with a bag for kids.

They brought me food meant for kids as well. So I prompted Papa Kumasi [another actor] that is it that they didn’t check my passport?”
