Princess Shyngle, a Gambian actress based in Ghana has named some Ghanaian celebrities she has dated and former Black Stars midfielder, Michael Essien is one.
She made this revelation in an interview with Delay on the Delay Show.
“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 Delay.
When asked if she was still in a relationship with Essien she answered in the negative. “Technically, no! 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,” she said.
According to her, they dated for a year.
She also said that she dated rapper D-Black for two years. She broke up with him because he was not always faithful to her.
Shyngle recently claimed that 99.9% of her former partners could not satisfy her sexually but she declined to respond to the question of whether D-Black fell within that percentage.
Michael Essien who was reported to have dated Ghanaian actress Nadia Buari in the past, is married to his manager Akosua Puni.
