Some Ghanaian movies will make you feel like you’re destined to be unlucky in love. You’ll see all these leading ladies chopping heartbreak like it’s an all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet at Golden Tulip. Nadia Buari as Beyoncé, a whole President’s daughter: heartbreak. Yvonne Nelson, a whole Princess Tyra: heart break fast!
Clearly, the common factor in these scenarios isn’t the women’s attitudes. You guessed right. It’s the men! These lover boys and their hobbies of collecting hearts.
We decided to take a roll call of some of the most infamously famous lover boys of Ghana cinema.
Here are 5 Ghanaian male actors who always broke hearts.
1. John Dumelo
The Don Dada himself. John is always breaking Ghanaian ladies hearts. Heck, he crossed the border to Nollywood and went and broke Tonto Dikeh’s heart in this classic. Look at this. We endorse an International Heartbreaker.
2. Chris Attoh
We cannot deny Chris Attoh’s acting chops. Remember when he was chopping heartbreak while in a wheelchair on Tinsel? Maybe it was karma for the way he did Lydia Forson in Scorned. We appreciate a versatile actor.
3. Majid Michel
The Format King. If ever there was an actor with a silver tongue then it was Majid Michel. In almost every one of his roles where he’s a heartbreaker he will break your heart while leaving you so confused that you wouldn’t even know your heart is breaking till you’re washing the breakfast dishes.
4. Bill Asamoah
Mr. Today’s Treasure is Tomorrow’s Trash. Bill Asamoah is one of Kumawood’s leading heartthrobs, and he leads with heart troubles too. Whether it’s a movie where he’s acting as a cheating husband or a lover under a juju spell, Bill will flip from “I love you die” to “When I see you my chest feels noxious.”
5. Van Vicker
The I’m-Toxic-But-No-One-Sees-that-because-I’m-a-Calm Lover Boy. He is always a Prince or a clueless fine boy in Ghanaian movies. And yet somehow Van Vicker will be breaking hearts left and right without outright being mean. He is the most dangerous tyPe of man to fall in love with because he honestly has no bad intentions and yet…last last you go chop breakfast. Look at this clip from Princess Tyra. Even Rama Brew was shook. The guy was literally standing there while his bae was being roasting harder than two slices of Kofi Brokeman. Tears.
