Actor and comedian, Clement Ashitey, popularly known as Clemento Suarez, has disclosed the family of late ex-President Jerry Rawlings has told him to stop mimicking him for now.
The comedian, in August 2020, paid Mr. Rawlings a visit in his office and set him laughing hard as he talked like him.
After the visit, he had on several occasions replayed scenes from his visit.
But since the demise of the former president, his family has asked the delightful comedian to put a hold on mimicking him until further notice.
Clemento Suarez made the disclosure on Accra-based UTV when he was offered another opportunity to relive the moment and imitate the former president.
“I was called by ex-president Rawlings’ family to stop imitating him from now until he is buried. I was told to respect the dead and more so his personality as a former president,” he revealed.
He said he will abide by the wishes of the family.
Mr. Rawlings, aged 73, passed at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital on Thursday, November 12, 2020.
