Actress Helen Tawiah Godschild, popularly known as Helen Omaboe, says she had to cut ties with her husband in America to push the New Patriotic Party (NPP) into power during 2016 elections.

According to her, being a staunch member of the then opposition party, she had to fly from America three days after her marriage to support the campaign.

Narrating her story to host Prince Tsegah on why she had to choose NPP over her husband in her second marriage, Madam Omaboe said:

“You know is because of the love I had for our President Akufo-Addo and the NPP as a whole, I was in USA in 2016 and this time around I felt it in my bones that he was going to win,” she said on Asempa FM‘s Tête-à-Tête show.


“I made sure my husband didn’t touch me before the marriage. He was pained that three days after we tied the knot I was going to campaign; he asked if I was mad,” she added.

Admitting she was the one who faulted the marriage, the movie producer said “I can even say there is no marriage because I spent three months on the campaign journey. I had to do what I had to.

“I don’t know how to stay abroad for long. I spent another three months and my husband slapped me with court papers. I was fortunate to have someone help me out with a good lawyer,” she explained.

She testified that she is now part of the board of Bureau of Ghana Languages after the party came to power.
