“My Cocoa Brown TV Series is Far Better Than Empire and Game of Thrones” Delay Claims On Star Fm
Despite the cast of Deloris Frimpong Manso’s new TV series-Cocoa Brown being confused as whether to call the lead actor Cocoa Brown or Coco Brown, Delay has confidently said her TV series is far better than Empire and Game of Thrones—just that certain Ghanaians are just hating.
And she claims, her director-Kofi Asamoah wholly agrees with the fact that, this is the best TV series to ever come from Ghana—far better than the many foreign ones that Ghanaians are hooked on.
The first episode of “Cocoa Brown” is currently on Youtube with comments disabled, perhaps, an attempt to prevent those who would watch it from discouraging others with their disparaging remarks about the overt execrable acting and unpardonable production flaws of the episode.
When the first episode of a TV series, which ought to serve as the strongest bait is clouded in glaring production flaws agglutinated with egregious acting, you would find yourself summing up how disastrous and odious the rest of the journey would be.
“Cocoa Brown” seems to have been elevated a little beyond the repugnant rhetoric of Afia Schwarzenegger, seemingly targeting an affluent audience that would find solace in a collection of “posh speaking” new and established actors—-except that, the lead-Ahoufe Patri fails once again to make a good case for her acting, inevitably casting a shadow on almost the entire cast.
Beyond the individual excruciating acting, the production quality is perfectly synonymous to Kumawood—-for the twenty or so minutes, you are served with a teeter sound, lurching up and low. A case in reference can be vividly picked up at point 14:57 where the pitch of the dialogue instantly increases from a comfortable low to a level such that you would be compelled to lower the volume of your device to create your own sane balance.
The lack of consistency or balance in the sound also serves as a bulwark to the salient role of the ambience sound, sometimes making it seem it has totally disappeared—-this could also be an issue with mixing. Whatever it is, it makes it difficult to enjoy the episode.
Then there’s the indiscriminate aerial shots which patently have no bearings on the pre and post scenes anytime they are used, except to probably remind us that a drone was on set and it’s woefully being abused. This seems to be a problem with director-Kofi Asamoah’s expression of art, he continues to misemploy aerial shots, a repeat of what he did in Amakye and Dede.
On Star Fm this evening, Delay said: “all those saying anything less of a praise about the TV Series have been paid to destroy the excellence of it or they are just hating and are envious of my great job. Some big men in government have even called to tell me the series is fabulous”
She added; “there’s nothing wrong with the series technically and the actors, especially Ahoufe Patricia is great—the best we have in Ghana. I have watched Game of Thrones, Empire and several other foreign TV series and Cocoa Brown is far better”
