In a recent interview hosted by Deloris Frimpong Manso on The Delay Show, Ghanaian actress and photo model, Ella Mensah, has given viewers an eye and ear full of interesting choice of clothing and interesting yet controversial information, respectively.
During the interview, the actress was asked about dating and she stated that she’s no longer dating married men and that’s she’s single and ready to mingle. However, she’s not open to dating a Ghanaian man; her reason being that most are jobless and “kiss and tell”. As a result, she now dates only Americans.
She was then asked whether the American she’s dating has money. Loosely translated from Twi to English, this is the actress’ reply:
“Oh Delay, he has to have money; when you look at me, do you think a poor man will approach me? Poor people, when they see me, they pass because I’m not their spec. When they see me, they pass. Like I said, when you see me, you’ll know that where you’re coming, it’s not for poor people and I don’t “play” with poor people, so no.”

Her interesting response to the question warranted this follow up question: “Were you born into a rich home?” The actress answered “no” and explained that even though she was born into a good home, she definitely was not born into a rich one and it’s precisely why she doesn’t want to mingle with poor people because she knows where she came from.
The actress further stated that she aspires to be better than her family and wants to learn from people who are better than her and since she’s not aspiring to be broke or poor, she can’t mingle with poor people.
