No nonsense Ghanaians have blasted filmmaker Leila Djansi following her remark that her African accent has cost her a lot as far as her career is concerned.
Thus, Leila Djansi in interview on Daybreak Hitz with Andy Dosty most recently revealed that her African accent has made her lost uncountable number of jobs as well as movie roles.

But to the voice of Ghanaians especially those on social media, Leila’s comment is simply uncalled for and unfortunate considering the fact that a lot of Africans not excluding Lupita Nyong’o are making it big with the very accent she’s disrespecting.
But actress Ama K Aberese to the rescue of Leila Djansi has posited that there’s nothing wrong with what Leila said adding that she believes actors must be versatile to better enable their acting prospects.
“I totally understand where Leila is coming from because the reality of the matter is when you are in LA, Nollywood, sometimes you get that cast profile and they say American or UK accent or we looking for someone with a Jamaican or Ghanaian accent and I have been to auditions like that, for her as a director to say that, there is nothing wrong with it”, she told Doreen Avio in an interview.
