Mark Angel, the brain behind Emanuella’s stardom also narrated what made them use their family member for their skit.
“Emanuella happens to be a cousin. We use to do short skits and one day, we just asked her to come and join us. She did it good so we decided use her in the subsequent ones.”
Mark Angel admitted that Emanuella’s fame negatively affects her education but added that they have put things in order to make sure that “she is above her friends in school.”
It does affect her school. We have a special teacher for her in school that follows her around. We don’t allow her to travel alone. She has to do extra lessons to make sure that she is above her friends in school. We are doing all these things so that anytime she travels, she won’t miss what the other students were taught” Mark Angel narrated.
Emanuella meets Kalybos for a comedy show this Saturday at the Efua Sutherland Children’s Park in Accra.
Other entertainers expected to perform at the Saturday show are Nii Funny, comedian OB, Tutulapato, Donzy, Awal, Cartun and many others.
