Jill Scott as Mma Ramotswe08.10.2009
KAK. Yes Jill Scott is a talented spoken word cross R&B singer. Yes, Jill Scott has a lot of soul. But can Jill Scott pull off an authentic Botswanan accent without making you want to switch channels? No. She slaughters it. As does her co-star Anika Noni Rose. Why couldn’t they just pick Southern African players for these roles? Eish. See, it’s not just the Afrikaans accent that’s hard to pull off.
