I washed dishes, sold banku and waakye in South Africa - Afia Schwarzenegger

Controversial TV host, Afia Schwarzenegger has revealed that her stay in South Africa was not as rosy as some people think it was.

According to Afia, her stay in South Africa was a tactical scheme to make ends meet.

Speaking in an interview with Felix Adomako Mensah on the ‘Celebrity ride with Zionfelix', the actress revealed that her first job in South Africa was to wash utensils for a Ghanaian-owned restaurant. She also worked for an Indian restaurant by washing utensils after she left the Ghanaian restaurant.

Later, she set up her own restaurant and sold banku to the Ghanaians around. She later moved to sell Waakye because that was more profitable.

"My first job in South Africa was washing dishes. I did that for almost a year. I started at a Ghanaian-owned restaurant before moving to an Indian-owned restaurant," Afia Schwarzenegger told Zionfelix.

"I later got my own ‘container’ to sell banku. I sold banku in Johannesburg and Cape Town.

"Winners African Kitchen was owned by myself. I wake up at dawn to go prepare Waakye. I cook banku and Waakye before heading to school during my university days," the TV personality continued.

"I didn’t have a car. I used to pick ‘trotro’. I can’t count the number of times I’ve been robbed at gunpoint.

"I was married to a white and was an air hostess but was still selling banku in South Africa."

She decided to move back to Ghana and played the role of Afia Schwarzenegger in Delay’s popular Television show “Afia Schwarzenegger” around 2010.
