Ghanaian actress-cum-movie producer, Tracey Boakye, who publicly declared her unflinching support for former president John Mahama and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) during the 2016 general elections, has opened up to share her experience with the rest of the world.
In an interview with Dave Hammer, the C.E.O of Shakira Movie Productions and ex-girlfriend of gospel musician Ernest Opoku has admitted that she once had that experience but hers was a little bit different from the others.
“WELL, I WON’T LIE ABOUT HAVING DATED A MOVIE DIRECTOR BEFORE. AS FOR ME, I ALWAYS SAY THE TRUTH AND NOT LIE.
“I HAVE DATED A MOVIE DIRECTOR BEFORE. AND I’LL ALWAYS ADMIT THAT HAVING DATED ONE ‘BENEFITED’ ME A LOT.
“HOWEVER, MINE WASN’T LIKE THE USUAL “LET-ME-BONK-YOU-BEFORE-I-GIVE-YOU-A-ROLE-TO-PLAY” KIND OF THING.
“IT WAS DATING JUST LIKE THE USUAL BOY-GIRLFRIEND RELATIONSHIP.
“IT WAS A MUTUAL UNDERSTANDING BETWEEN THE TWO OF US. WE BOTH LOVED EACH OTHER, AND THE TWO OF US ‘BENEFITED’ FROM THE AFFAIR.
“THERE WERE EVEN TIMES THAT HE NEVER CAST ME IN MOVIES HE PRODUCED HIMSELF WHICH I AGREED TO BECAUSE I COULDN’T FIT IN. HE WAS ONLY BEING PROFESSIONAL, AND THAT IS HOW I ALSO AM.
“SO AS FOR ME, THE ISSUE ABOUT “LET-ME-BONK-YOU-BEFORE-I-GIVE-YOU-A-ROLE-TO-PLAY’ ”SORT OF THING HAS NEVER HAPPENED TO ME.
“BUT TRUTH IS, I HAVE DATED A MOVIE DIRECTOR BEFORE,” SAID TRACEY BOAKYE.
