Authorities of Accra Film School, a private institute that provides training in filmmaking, have refused to acknowledge or maintain any connection with stunning actress Princess Christian Shyngle, despite media reports that she is a student of the school.
Shyngle, a Ghana-based Gambian actress with breath-taking curves, has been described by several news reports including online news sites, newspapers and radio stations as someone who is “currently studying Film Directing at the Accra Film School at East Legon.”
When NEWS-ONE visited the Accra Film School on Monday to look for Shyngle, authorities there expressed frustration at the number of persons who had trooped to the school in search of her.
“Our school registers and academic records do not have anything on the actress you are looking for. None of our lecturers knows her as a student here, yet for the past two weeks we continue to get calls and visitors who say they are looking for this same lady, Princess Shyngle, and that they read in the papers she is a student here.
“Our school runs the course she was reported to be studying but we have checked through that class, the camera class, production class, directing class, presenting class and animation class and she is nowhere to be found. Perhaps it is time we made it public that she is not a student here because it is becoming clear there is some misinformation out there directing people here,” Rex Anthony Annan, head of the school told NEWS-ONE.
Mr Anthony Annan said the journalists either committed a genuine mistake with the name of the school or someone deliberately decided to put out wrong information.
“She is a beautiful actress and we would have loved to have her here. But she is not here. If she were a student here, we would have known. Her physical features cannot be mistaken. We have several ladies similar to her in appearance and someone may have mistaken her identity. But to set the records straight, she is currently not a student here, she has never been a student here, she has not picked forms to be a student here and we cannot tell whether she has plans of coming here,” Mr Anthony Annan added.
The 24-year-old Shyngle recently hit the news headlines when she was reported to have called on her potential male suitors to muster courage and approach her and not be scared of her shape.
She was reported to have explained why her last relationship did not work out.
“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.
The reports further quoted Shyngle: “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 a global brand, at the age of 18 and I was head of Key Accounts, Business Development and Sponsorship.
“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.
