Ghana-based Gambian actress, Princess Shyngle has revealed she once dated married Ghanaian footballer Michael Essien.
According to the curvaceous actress, she had an affair with Essien because she was unaware he was married, and once she got to know the truth, she called it quits with him immediately.
“I dated him. I had no idea he was married. I had no reason to ask him because I never saw wedding ring on his finger and there were obviously no pictures of him and any woman on a social media so I assumed that he was a single man,” she told Deloris Frimpong-Manso a.k.a Delay on the Delay Show.
“…What happened was I got to know that he was married and that was a deal breaker for me. Obviously we were out in public which was a dumb move and I got contacted by some people that he was married and then I decided to google and I found out that he was really married.”
Michael Essien, who was reported to have dated Ghanaian actress Nadia Buari, is married to his manager Akosua Puni. The couple have two children.
Princess Shyngle also disclosed in the interview that she dated Ghanaian rapper D-Black for two years. She said she broke up with the Vera hitmaker because he cheated on her.
