Actress and ex-wife of Ghanaian international Majeed Waris believes his axing from the Black Stars final squad for AFCON 2019 was retribution for how he treated her during their marriage.
Habiba Sinare in an emotional monologue on Hitz FM described herself as a proud divorcee and alleged that she was treated like garbage by of the Porto player.
The single mother said she quit school with just a year to complete her studies in order to make work her marriage to Waris -“someone she was more educated than.”
The owner of Eraniss, a make-up brand, also disclosed that her family wanted her to marry someone from her own class but she chose the Right to Dream Academy graduate.
“I don’t wish him bad but as I am talking to you today he (Waris) is paying for it…I am here as a single mother and I am a very young woman but the type of responsibility this young guy has placed on my head, I laugh and walk around like I am the happiest woman in this world,” she said.
She added, “But, I bleed inside me, I cry inside me, I cry every day, I look at my child and I ask myself if I had followed my family or listened to my family because they wanted me to marry someone else but I trusted this person.”
According to her, because her family have a high status than the footballer’s, that was why her family did not approve of her marriage to him.
Habiba is the daughter of Ghana’s former Ambassador to Saudi Arabia, Saeed Sinare and the niece of veteran actress Kalsoume Sinare Baffoe.
She married Waris, who was playing for Lorient FC in the French Ligue 1 in 2017 but the marriage blessed with a son hit the rocks 16 months later.
The actress who is currently promoting the Kobi Rana-directed movie 18 premiering at the Silverbird Cinemas advised women not to marry people from a lower social standing.
