- Grace Omaboe, also known as Maame Dokono, has revealed three reasons why she did not marry actor, David Dontoh
- According to her, she decided to let him go, else she would waste his time
Veteran Ghanaian actress, Grace Omaboe, has disclosed the reasons that prevented her from marrying David Dontoh, another renowned movie star.
In a report by GHIssues.com, Grace Omaboe, also known as Maame Dokono, stated that even though they were close, the idea of getting married and having babies would have only remained a fantasy.
According to her, David wanted to have children with her, but she wasn’t interested. This, she stated was because aside being older than he was, she already had children and had undergone a caesarian section.
The procedure, she revealed, made her weak and for that matter, childbirth would have become a challenge.
The movie queen went ahead to say that taking these into consideration, she decided that she wouldn’t want to waste David’s time, hence her decision to part ways with him.
Maame Dokono was in the news in recent times as a result of a revelation that she was involved with David Dontoh at a point in time.
She stated that the decision to get involved with him, was borne out of the desire to ward off other men who were pestering her with marriage proposals.
“David Dontoh held me together and handled me well. At that time I was popular, beautiful and many, different men were all over me when I am on stage, so I needed someone to hold me,” she said.
Both David Dontoh and Maame Dokono were the toast of television lovers in the 90’s due to the numerous programmes and movies they featured in.
David gained popularity from movies such as ‘Deadly Voyage,’ ‘Kukurantumi – the Road to Accra,’ ‘Heritage Africa,’ among others.
Maame Dokono, on the other hand, rose to stardom as a result of programmes such as Obra, a programme that gained nationwide appeal in the late 80’s and early 90’s. She also co-hosted ‘By the Fireside’ with Dr. Rokoto.
