Photos: Kumawood goes black at one week commemoration of Nana Ama McBrown's 'mum'



Nana Ama McBrown lost her mum, Madam Betty Obiri Yeboah recently but kept it on the low. The ‘one week commemoration’  ceremony took place on Thursday at Kwadaso in Kumasi with most of Nana Ama’s colleagues in attendance.  According to,  Madam Betty Obiri Yeboah is not McBrown’s biological mum, but her aunt.

With her father gone and mother unable to take care of her and her six other siblings, Nana Ama together with her siblings were adopted by Kofi McBrown and her aunt, Madam Betty Obiri Yeboah who died a week ago.
