Popular actress, Emelia Brobbey would talk about anything and everything but hardly about her marriage which is always an out-of-bounds subject. “My marriage is very private and I intend to keep it as such”, she toldShowbiz over the phone last weekend from her UK home.
“Some celebrities may be comfortable speaking publicly about their marriages but that is not me. I see marriage as a sacred thing which shouldn’t be in the public domain”.
Emelia was responding to a media report that accused her of infidelity and claimed that she was pregnant for another man who was not her husband.
Emelia told Showbiz that she would have preferred not to talk about the false report but for the wrong impression that may have been created by it.
Although Emelia confirmed that she was pregnant, she said she was pregnant for her husband she got married to not quite long ago.
“I divorced my former husband a little over one year ago after I found out that things were not working well for us. I asked for a divorce from my ex when I found out that he had three children without my knowledge.
“I got married to him without knowing he had kids and after I found out I said there was no way I could stay with such a man, I filed for a divorce and it was granted” Emelia explained to Showbiz.
Emelia Brobbey regretted the timing of the false publication as she is now enjoying a new life with her newly wedded husband. “How would my husband feel reading from a newspaper and on the Internet that his wife’s pregnancy was for another man?”
Emelia started acting in 2002 with the help of Daniel Adeley who introduced her to Miracle Films production for her first movie role in Tribal War.
Despite the fact that the role was a minor one, she took it and it served as a stepping stone to bigger ones.
Currently she has featured in over 50 movies which are a mix of Twi and English. They include War of Roses, Tribal War, Wo Nyamesom Mpo Ni, Hidden Passions, Blackmail, Afunumuba, Aku Sika, Ama Ghana, Sika Ye Abrantie, Obiyaa and Whose Fault.
Emelia had two nominations in the 2010 Ghana Movie Awards for Best Actress in Leading Role ( Local Language) and Most Favourite Actress categories alongside others such as Jackie Appiah, Yvonne Nelson, Nana Ama Mcbrown and Rose Mensah popularly known as Kyeiwa.
Besides acting, Emelia has sterling teaching credentials. She trained and obtained a Teachers Certificate ‘A’ at the Kibi Presbyterian Training College and taught at Obuasi JSS complex, Martin Luther King School in Kumasi and Soul Clinic International School in Accra.
She also holds a Diploma in Journalism from Manifold Tutorial College and a Degree in Human Resource Management from Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA).
