Actress Victoria Lebene Mekpah has completed her ascendancy from a nobody to a mainstay in the Ghanaian showbiz industry and all it seemingly took her was a journey encompassing the hairy balls of an old man and getting pregnant for a popular Peace Fm producer and blogger.
It’s almost like a fairy tale in reverse – instead of the prince finding the breathtaking beauty and making her his princess, the princess searches out every prince she can find until everyone in the land knows her due to her association with princes.
It wasn’t that long ago that Lebene Mekpah came onto the showbiz scene as the hot girlfriend of veteran actor Kofi Adjorlolo. In the over a year that they dated she become a household name until their very public breakup.
Victoria claimed they broke up because her father was not in support of their relationship considering their age difference, but Abeiku Santana recently said that wasn’t true and that the entire relationship was a publicity stunt. Both deny she ever had s*x with Adjorlolo, although if you believe that then I have a bridge in China I’m selling you.
But even admitting that she never really dated Adjorlolo and that the entire thing was a year-long publicity stunt just to propel her to superstardom, it puts into question the very character of Victoria which would get her to agree to such a harebrained scheme so she can get a shortcut to fame without doing any actual work.
Either way, she doesn’t come off looking as a principled person bent on working hard to achieve her dreams the right way but a manipulative, amoral shrew playing on the hearts and minds of Ghanaians for her own purposes.
Victoria has now moved onto Eugene Osafo Nkansah, who is marrying her probably due to her visibly protruding belly seen at her wedding.
Rumour is Lebene is pregnant and that like John Dumelo and Stonebwoy before him, Osafo Nkansah had to do a quick wedding to hide the fact. Although for some reason they decided to have her put on a dress which highlighted that too much.
It could turn out to be true that Victoria never slept with Kofi Adjorlolo, and maybe she’s marrying Osafo Nkansah out of mad love, but all we know about showbiz flies in the face of that.
For all intents and purposes, it’s mission accomplished for Victoria Lebene Mekpah. From a virtual nobody, she’s now risen to become a D-list actress with A-list fame without ever showing off that much acting talent.
