Popular Ghanaian comedian cum actor, Funny Face, has confirmed reports that he has divorced his wife after two years of marriage, saying the divorce happened seven months ago.
Reacting to a newspaper publication today [Wednesday], with the heading ‘Comedian Funny Face divorces wife’?, the comedian, known in real life as Benson Oduro Boateng, admitted the divorce in a Facebook post.
He wrote “Just saw this … I guess you can’t light a candle and hide it under your bed … Ppl will see the light .. It’s been Seven months ago … All I will say is ” I TRIED , IT JUST DIDN’T WORK ”
The comedian, whose career has somewhat taken a nosedive, married his long-time girlfriend, Elizabeth Nana Adjoa Ntim at a low key ceremony in December 2014.
At the time, he expressed so much happiness as pictures of the ceremony were all over social media.
It is unclear what caused the divorce but as his Facebook post suggested, he tried to fix it, but it just did not work.
Several fans of the actor on Facebook have reacted to the news on his page.
The actor is very active on Facebook with about 1.7 million people liking his Facebook page.
While some of his fans encouraged him, others criticized him for divorcing since in their view, they consider him a role model.
Some even felt Funny Face was seeking to send across one of his usual jokes, but he interacted with them and confirmed it was indeed true, and thanked those encouraging him.
Below are some of the reactions to the divorce.
