GHANA'S Most Beautiful 2011 winner, Akua Amoakowaa Mensah, has disclosed that she is living a better life without friends.
According to her, she put her in trust in people she thought were friends in the early years of her marriage to Dr Kwaku Oteng, CEO of Angel Group of companies, only for them to betray her.
"I made a lot of friends right after my marriage but they didn’t help me. I had to do away with all of them because the gossip was too much.
"I am better off now without friends. Some ladies will do anything to get what you have so me being without friends is really helping me live my dreams and I am very focused now,” she told Graphic Showbiz recently.
Asked how she handles the rumours about her marriage, Akua, who has been married for eight years said she sometimes breaks down because the stories are false.
"I can’t pretend such scandals or stories about my marriage don’t worry me. I feel very bad when I read those false stories but no matter what I do I can’t prevent them from happening,” she said.
Akua explained that the best way to handle such publications was to keep quiet and that had helped her a lot.
Asked whether her husband was a jealous man, the mother of three said it was normal for a man who loves his wife to be jealous.
Akua revealed that she still gets a lot of proposals from men but tells them she is happily married.
“I always say that as for the men they will come but it depends on the lady and whether she will allow herself or not”.
Akua had acting ambitions and even starred in about five movies but has to stop because her husband was not comfortable with it.
