Ghana-based Gambian actress, Princess Shyngle, has disclosed how long she dated Ghanaian footballer Michael Essien.
Speaking in an interview with Delay, Princess said she dated Essien for a year without knowing that he was married.
“I dated him. I had no idea he was married. I had no reason to ask him because I never saw a 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.
Princess Shyngle also disclosed that she dated rapper D-Black for two years…but she broke up with him because he was not always faithful to her.
Shyngle, who recently claimed that 99.9% of her former partners could not satisfy her sexually, was not able to answer whether D-Black fell within that percentage or not.
Michael Essien who was reported to have dated Ghanaian actress Nadia Buari in the past is married to his manager Akosua Puni.
