Elliot is a star in the making and his nice voice, coupled with his unique persona, makes him stand out among the old and new faces in the industry.
Elliot made his debut major role in the newly premiered ‘Single & Married’ and even before the movie hits the market, fans who saw him do his thing in the movie have started loving him.
Last week, actress Yvonne Nelson told fellow actors that they should watch out for Elliot because he was hot and very good.
“He was amazing,” Yvonne said on TV3’s ‘Diva’s Show’.
Kweku Elliott, known by all his friends and family as Kay Elliott, is a Ghanaian born upcoming television and film actor.

One of his first acting roles was in the popular and widely televised advert for Vodafone dubbed ‘The Chase’.
Professionally, Elliott is a graphic designer who got into acting when one of his close friends practically forced him to audition for the role he played in the Vodafone TV commercial.
He was born in Takoradi in the Western Region of Ghana and lived there till he was about five years old when he moved with his family to Tema in the Greater Accra Region. He and his sister, Essie, attended SOS Herman Gmeiner International School where his mother, Henrietta, was a teacher. His father Kojo Elliott was a lawyer who passed away when Elliott was only six.
From SOS, he attended Akosombo International School for his Junior Secondary School and later went to Mfantisipim School. After his secondary education, he moved to the United Kingdom where he attended the Arts Institute of Bournemouth to pursue a degree course.
During his stay in London, Elliott did everything from waiting on tables to modeling to pay for rent and his upkeep. Elliott moved back to Ghana in 2006 and started his own business, Media-k Solutions, a desktop publishing company.
His acting career began in 2011 when he was cast as the lead in the TV advert for Vodafone. His first major film role is as Raymond in the Yvonne Nelson-produced movie ‘Single and Married’.
Elliott got the opportunity to work with seasoned actors and actresses like Nadia Buari who played his on-screen wife, Chris Attoh, Eddie Watson, Kofi Adjorlolo and Yvonne Nelson.
His effortless performance has not gone unnoticed as directors and producers have given him a great review.
