|Khareema Aguiar & Gershon Koffie|
Ghanaian actress, Khareema Aguiar, has finally confessed she is dating 22-year-old, Gershon Koffie, a Canada-based Ghanaian midfielder who plays for White Caps in Vancouver. The revelation follows Tuesday’s report that the ‘Checkmate’ actress had refused to clear the air on her relationship with Gershon, saying her career should be talked about and not her love life.
The beautiful actress, who seemed angry by commentaries that followed the report, made a u-turn yesterday and said she had nothing to hide about her love relationship with Gershon.
“Ghanaians think I am denying him, no I’m not denying him, he is my boyfriend and I love him very much, people should let us be. I have heard comments saying because I have issues so I am trying to be smart by not coming out open. Now I am out here speaking so you all should listen and listen good, Gershon is very happy with me and I am extremely happy with him.
We are friends, he is my confidant and my number one fan, so I am not denying him…but there are kids out there who need support and much attention must be given to them. I have now spoken and that’s what it is, I love my man, so now leave us alone and give the aged some attention and care, they need it,” she said.
Asked how they met and how long they have been dating, Khareema revealed that, “Our meeting was timely and God’s intervention. He is the one I have been searching for all this while and I am the one he has been scouting for, so our meeting is timely. We have been dating for some time now but really how long we have been dating is irrelevant at this point, but trust me every minute we spend together is like a year together. So trust me if that’s anything to go by, then I guess we have been dating for a decade.”
Khareema has been spotted with the soccer star in town on a number of occasions. They were last seen at the Ghana Rock Concert that took place at the Accra International Conference Centre on December 27, 2013.
Gershon first went public with the relationship when he visited Ghana during the Christmas holidays.
“My girl is the reason I’m here. She is an actress,” he reportedly told Nana Aba Anamoah on the Diva Show on TV3 without mentioning the name of the actress in question. “I have only one favourite actress, who is my girlfriend. In fact, we are dating seriously and she is Khareema Aguiar,” he finally said on GH One’s E-Talk show.
Khareema has also confirmed they are dating but none of them has spoken about marriage.
