Patapaa’s wife, Liha Miller, has revealed that being the partner of the Ghanaian artist has not been easy because she was attacked with insults and sexual claims by Ghanaians who barely knew her at the start of their relationship.
In an interview with GhanaWeb’s Zionfelix, the German stated that people who had no knowledge of Patapaa’s past began body-shaming her from the minute she published a photo of the two of them on social media.
Aside from the insults thrown at her, there were comments that Patapaa was only seeking to exploit her, a reason the musician had opted to be her partner, she recalled.
“In the beginning, it was very difficult because I’m white so people were thinking Patapaa is after my money or he wants to get papers through me. Some said I’m chubby, I’m not slim… In the beginning, it was really hard.
“I remember I saw some comments on the Patapaa picture that he posed with me on his birthday and people were talking about me, about my family… Somehow, it has pained me. I was new to this,” Liha said.
To add salt to injury, she was hit with sexual allegations and that made the situation worse, she admitted in the interview. According to her, it was around the same period Patapaa had unveiled her as his girlfriend and having been insulted by a section of the public for no apparent reason, the last thing she expected was allegations of sexual misconduct.
“There was news going around that I have slept with Stonebwoy, Bisa Kdei, Patoranking and others which were not true. It was very hard. People were judging me without knowing me. I couldn’t even introduce myself to them. Patapaa had said ‘This is my girlfriend’ and everyone started talking. But after that, when people started to know me, they began to love me. But it took some time,” Liha noted.
Sounding elated, Liha who is now in Germany working as a nurse stated that she loves Ghana because it is a beautiful place.
