As an International model of African descent, Menaye’s mother is an Ashanti and her father is Fante. She was born in Canada and moved to Ghana when she was 5 years. The mother of one attended had her Junior High education at Morning Star School.
Growing up, her father and friends thought she will be a great lawyer because she was eloquent and fluent in English. After winning Miss Universe and all the exposure that came with the fame, her dreams of becoming a lawyer was forgotten. Menaye established her own charity to help the needy.
The 35-year-old model is the cousin of award-winning actress, Ama K. Abebrese who is known for her roles in 'Sinking Sands', 'Ties That Bind' and 'Beast of No Nation’.
She met Sulley for the first time in a hotel lobby where she was having dinner with her sister and Ama K. Abebrese. Ama K. Abebrese introduced Sulley to Menaye. Sulley always had to talk to her on Ama K. Abebrese’s phone for a month. They maintained their friendship for eight months.
"Sulley has empathy towards people. Sulley supported her charity and brought his footballer mates on board. He always loved and adored her family as his own."
Sulley proposed to Menaye after a serious relationship for two years. Menaye rejected his proposal because she wasn’t ready and wanted to know more about him. They studied each other for another two years before they got married.
Menaye is a Christian married to a Muslim. Sulley believes there is only one God and Menaye believes the respect and love for each other and the respect for God was enough for them to marry.
Menaye has a good relationship with her in-laws. As the Ashanti customs demand her father gave Sulley the list of things to buy for the traditional marriage.
They registered their marriage even before the traditional marriage. Menaye always wanted to have a white wedding but such ‘frills’ has not happened due to her relocating to a new home each and every time.
Legally Muslims are allowed to more than spouse but Menaye says Sulley can’t marry another woman because that was not part of their agreement. Menaye stressed that Sulley’s father married one woman and he is following his footsteps.
Most people think marrying a footballer is all about enjoyment but it is a tedious lifetime job.
Menaye says she is Sulley’s mother, wife, lover, cook and sometimes his lawyer.
Menaye developed and founded the luxury Italian brand SHE-Y. The brand launched its first all-natural products early in 2016 using ethically-sourced Shea butter from Ghana.
