Controversial self-acclaimed queen of Ghana comedy, Afia Schwarzenegger, says she is no longer a smoker.
According to Afia, smoking was virtually her best friend and she enjoyed it a lot but recently, she has turned a new leaf.
Afia Schwarzenegger disclosed that she needed to stop smoking for two basic reasons; becuase of the health risks involved, and because her children were growing.
She explained that as a mother, and a good one to her children, she did not want to them to grow up seeing her involved in any bad habit.
Afia, born Valentina Nana Agyeiwaa, added that her children look up to her as their role model, and so to influence their lives positively, she needed to take the tough decision to quit smoking.
The comedienne made this revelation when she appeared as a guest cook on Yvonne Okoro’s show ‘Dinning With Cooks and Braggarts’.
She is reported to have said: “..When you hit your 30s, there are certain things you don’t do. So yes I have smoked and I enjoyed smoking and nobody told me to quit smoking.”
“I made the decision that I am growing. I have got kids and that is not what I want my kids to see so I learn to put up a good behaviour.”
Afia Schwarzenegger has three children – a set of twin boys and a girl.
She had her twin sons James Ian and John Irvin from her first marriage to South African who died some years ago, and just a few years after, adopted her daughter, Pinna .
She later married her second husband Lawrence Abrokwa in 2016, but huge scandal rocked that marriage in 2017 after 9 months of being together.
Afia Schwarzenegger is currently ‘fighting’ her ex-husband in court for allegedly stealing items belonging to her and a man she was caught in bed with.
She has recently flaunted another ‘macho’ man on social media and according to rumors, he is her next ‘target’.
