Michael Essien and Akosua Puni and Michael Essien are Trully married
At a cocktail party organised by Real Madrid player, Michael Essien last Friday in Accra, Akosua Puni was officially unveiled and referred to as ‘Akosua Puni Essien’ by the soccer star. The cocktail was held on the eve of Essien’s charity football match between Africa XI and World XI; reports says Akosua Puni was virtually in charge of the entire arrangements and organization. In September 2012 there was news about the soccer star marriage to Akosua Puni at a secret location in London but it was treated as mere rumour. But we know better now.
And rumours have it that Essien and Akosua have two children together who are presently in London.
This revelation by Essien is a good one because we were losing count on the number of fine chics the soccer star have been with. Among names that have popped up to have had something to do with Essien are Cassie Sumner, Lurata Murati (both British models), Leila Beiruthy (shop worker), Nadia Buari (Ghanaian movie star), and of course, Veralie Dela Ackumey (a final-year law student who may have graduated by now).
According to Ghanafilla.com… Apart from Leila and Cassie, all the rest had at one time or the other been reported to have claimed they did not get the desired attention from the star. In fact, some bluntly said he had cheated on them.
British Model Lurata Murati got mad after she realized the Ghanaian footballer was having a secret affair with Cassie Summer, another model, whilst he was still dating her, saying she was sick and tired of the insincerity.
In 2006, she told a British Tabloid: “I can’t believe I’ve been sleeping with this man who was happy to see such a trollop. He thinks because he is this big football hero he can treat women with contempt. “To be honest, I’m glad I found out about this to her woman, otherwise he would have been stringing me along for ages. At the end of the day, I’m better off without him. He’s just another big-time footballer who thinks he can have whoever he wants without ever worrying about the consequences. Now I just want to put Michael Essien out of my life.”
All these happened two weeks after he had reportedly dumped her for Cassie Sumner. She said Essien had ditched her after she discovered he was cheating on her. But the worst of all accusations came from Dela, who alleged the footballer had cheated on her over 50 times.
In an interview with News of the World, she contended: “He had lied through his teeth to cover up what went on between us. He may be a successful footballer, but as a person, he is a failure. He cheated on me so many times-more than 50.”
Dela told the British newspaper: “Michael spent a lot of time on the internet and I later discovered he was using a dating website called highfive.com and another more pornographic ones. He would call to say he had something important to do with one of the other Chelsea stars. It was the perfect cover for Michael to meet other women.”
But in spite of all these allegations, many of his Ghanaian fans think the claims are too wild to be true, saying, the media-shy footballer is only being blackmailed because of his fame and cash.
