Movies made in the local dialect, Twi popularly called Kumawood movies have faced backlash from the general public for its constant use of insults and abusive words.

Critics who say the offensive words should be reduced believe children love Kumawood movies so the constant use of such language will not help them but actress Christiana Awuni thinks otherwise.

The Kumawood star in an interview with Zionfelix on Val’s Day’s edition of Radio Univers’ Brunch2Lunch entertainment show disclosed that they enact what happens in the Ghanaian society so she finds it worrying to hear people complain about it.

To her, directors do not ask them to use abusive words in movies without a reason so individuals who have a problem with the act should understand their work.

Christiana Awuni opined that critics would not have had a problem if they had insulted in English because it would not have sounded harsh as it does in Twi. Citing an example, the actress said nobody fights without insulting so they cannot paint a picture of such a scene without the actors insulting each other.
