Curvaceous Ghana-based Gambian actress, Princess Christian Shyngle, has dared shy men who want to approach her to be bold to do so instead of going behind her back to seek her phone number and personal information from her friends.
Princess, 24, who says she does not appreciate that sneaky methods, revealed some men even secretly take pictures of her and send them to her via Instagram in a bid to get through to her.
In a chat with Showbiz last Monday, the actress said although she is currently single and not looking for love, she found it very unmanly that some men were intimidated by her looks and would resort to such cowardly means to get to her.
“My last relationship failed because my partner had trust issues and felt insecure because of the nature of my job and the number of people I interacted with on a daily basis. Right now, I am focused on my career and due to my busy schedule, I don’t have much time to dedicate to a relationship,” she said.
However, when she is ready to choose from her numerous suitors, Princess admits she will have eyes for a man who is cute, God fearing, ambitious and confident. No timid men will be considered.
The beautiful actress, whose vital statistics are 30-22-44, admitted that although her curvy figure drew her a lot of attention, which she enjoyed to some extent, she also found it very annoying sometimes and want people to look beyond her jaw-dropping body.
“I want people to see me beyond my body. I want them to see me as intelligent, smart and talented. I worked for Coca-Cola, which is global brand at the age of 18 and I was head of key accounts, business development and sponsorship.”
Talking about her figure, which has earned her admiration, she said she had a very strict dieting and exercise regimen which she observed every day.
“I exercise every single day, I don’t have to go to the gym but I make sure I do my sit-ups at home. I drink my green tea, warm water and lemon every day and I am always on diet. Naturally, I have always been curvy. The slim waist is the result of waist training but the figure is God given,” she said.
Throwing light on how she became an actress, Princess who shot to fame after appearing in D Black’s movie, Why Should I Get Married, said she found her passion for the make believe world after taking part in the Next Movie Star reality show, although she had never acted prior to her audition.
“I was encouraged by friends to give it a try and out of hundreds of Gambians who auditioned, I was selected to represent my country in Nigeria. I was in the house with 16 other housemates and I came in second at the final.”
She is currently studying film directing at the Accra Film School at East Legon.
“I am not just an actress, I am also a movie producer and a writer. In November, I co-produced, wrote and starred in Why Did I Get Married together with D.Black. The movie was a huge success and we got six nominations at the Ghana Movie Awards, and eventually won one.”
Princess was born in the Gambia and says she is a descendant from all over Africa. “My paternal grandparents are from Ghana and Sierra Leone respectively while my maternal grandparents are from Nigeria and Mali.”
With a decent educational background, the actress has majored in IT, Business and Marketing from the Gambian Business College and worked with beverage giants, Coca-Cola.
