“I found out, with the help of my lawyers, that my marriage with Abrokwa was illegal. Our marriage certificate had wrong dates. We got married on October 22, 2016 but it stated it happened on November 1, 2016 which was very wrong,” Afia said in her interview.

She also insisted that although she could not tell if her ex-husband, Abrokwa was only after her money or meant serious business with her in the whole marriage.

“Let’s leave that to the court and God. I cannot say what is pending in court. It will be told in court on Tuesday,” Afia said when asked if she felt Abrokwa wanted to defraud her.
