Kumawood actress, Rose Mensah known in showbiz as Akua Ataa Kyeiwaa escaped death at the Santasi Roundabout in Kumasi yesterday.
The Kumawood actress was, according to FIPAG President, Eugene Moratt crossing the busy roundabout to meet a friend and colleague actress, Matilda Asare and announce the sudden break up of her marriage to her when the incident happened.
“Kyeiwaa while crossing the road was absent minded, so the vehicles blew their horns on her several times and she had to be alerted of the impending danger…God saved her,” he said.
The celebrated local actress, he continued, was highly disturbed after her four day old marriage ended on the rocks upon discovering that her lover was already married to another woman. The Kumawood actress parted ways with her ‘newly’ found lover, Akwasi Bronya, a week into their controversial marriage.
The actress confirmed thE divorce on Adom TV on Thursday evening that she has had to swallow the bitter pill of divorce as a result of the ranging controversy surrounding the Kumasi-based businessman who she married last weekend.
“I have given back his drink to him and he has accepted because I can’t afford to be a second wife…I prefer to remain single than to do that…,” Kyeiwaa said in an interview.
The celebrated local actress traditionally married the Kumasi-based businnessman at a ceremony which was attended by several persons from her industry.
Kyeiwaa, Eugene said acting on her Christian beliefs had to call for an end to the marriage because ‘she said she can’t afford to be a second wife since that would not allow her partakes in the Lord’s Supper’. Thus, together with five bus loads of her colleague movie stars and family members, Kyeiwaa presented the drink and the ring back to the man.
