Actress and TV presenter, Afia Schwarzenegger, says she is overwhelmed by the love some Ghanaians continue to show her despite the many controversies that she has been through these last few months.
The outspoken presenter revealed to Showbiz on Monday that she had been offered three houses by different individuals after news broke that her husband had asked her to move out of his house at Haatso.
“I never knew Ghanaians loved me like that. I thought it was a joke when I read on my facebook page that three people wanted to offer me houses. Until I met with them to see how serious they were, I thought it was a scam,” she said.
According to Afia Schwarzenegger, it was not true that she had been asked by her man to pack out of where she stays and said the house was in her name. Apart from the three houses she was offered, she said there were some rich individuals who wanted to rent a place for her at her own convenience.
To Afia, the fact that some Ghanaians rallied behind her when negative stories about her marriage and the Obinim issue came up showed how many Ghanaians support what she does.
“I am amazed at the huge responses I get anytime I step out for an event or present a show. I never thought I would have Ghanaians supporting me that much,” he said.
As she has always stated, Afia who seems to be growing stronger every time she is in the news for the wrong reasons said nothing can break her.
“It is time people know that negative news will not break me. I am a hard nut to crack. After carrying my dead husband whom I married for 10 years, what, again can shake me? I have said that I will give any amount to anyone who will succeed in bringing me down,” she said.
Asked how she has been able to overcome the negative stories, Afia explained that it is because most of the time, things said about her were not true.
According to her, people do not really find out the truth before putting out information about her but she is not bothered because everyone is entitled to his or her opinion.
She said even if those stories said about her were true, she would not kill herself to please her critics. “Ok, my husband is now with his wife so should I kill myself or stop doing my programme? No way, I will continue doing what I know best”.
Afia believes it is her Kokooko programme on UTV that has turned into a “public enemy”. “People actually think I hate them that is why I talk about them on my show. I don’t hate anyone but I present the news as it is”, she stated.
