The Drive Time show host of Okay FM, Abeiku Santana, has revealed that he was once a chain smoker and drank a lot.
He said he has to sacrifice this habit because of a lady he met and wanted to have for a love affair.
Abeiku has reportedly made a full narration on how it all happened for him to get over those habits as seen in a report by YEN.com.gh on Ghanacelebrities.com.
According to the report, Abeiku said he had finished hosting his show on Ash FM in Kumasi and decided to go down to smoke and have a drink.
While the cigarette was stuck between his fingers, he saw the lady of his dreams passing by and quickly asked someone to call her for him.
Abeiku said he resisted the temptation to call the lady himself because he feared being ignored and that would hurt him as a celebrity.
The light-skinned lady accepted his invitation and came to where he was drinking and smoking. However, she turned him down when he went straight to the point to tell her that he liked her and was interested in having a relationship with her.
Abeiku Santana said he deciphered that the smoking and drinking were what turned the lady of his dreams off, therefore, he decided to quit those habits completely so that he could get her attention.
“I had to restrategise and go in for her. She accepted me this time and dated for some time,” Abeiku reportedly said.
Unfortunately, their courtship did not end in marriage as they went their separate ways. However, years later, Abeiku said he met this same lady again and they got married.
Though he did not mention any name, his narrative points to his current wife, Genevieve.
They recently celebrated their seventh wedding anniversary after meeting and being friends for 20 years, according to Abieku Santana.
