Imagine trying so hard to hide your showbiz persona in order to get a job in another sector? Why try hiding if you have nothing to hide?
Shatta Michy has been running around fooling with Shatta Wale and thus when for some reason she decided to get a job she knew if her prospective employers found out who she was she wouldn’t be hired.
Thus Michelle Diamond Gbagonah, who only the night before her interview had performed with Shatta Wale with red hair at Ghana Meets Naija, dyed her hair black then when she appeared at the interview, pretended not to be the notorious baby mama of the most controversial artist in Ghana.
She narrated what happened to the Graphic Showbiz.
“I remember at Ghana Meets Naija in 2016, I had an interview the Monday after the event for a cabin crew job. Then I came showing things on stage, with my hair dyed red like that.
“So on Monday, I went before the panel which was the final stage. They asked me if I was into showbiz because they wanted to know how I was going to juggle the two as both industries are really demanding. I tried denying, the truth is that I did not go with the red hair, I dyed it back to its black colour.
“As I kept denying, one of the panellists just showed me a newspaper with me in my Ghana Meets Naija outfit and here I was dumbfounded. I could have gotten the job easier because the people realised that I was good at what I wanted to do, I am actually trained in that. So yes, being in the entertainment fraternity has helped but I have had its downside too,”
