Actress Nikki Samonas, who is of
Greek and Ghanaian parentage, has revealed that she once survived on
selling ‘iced water’ on the streets.
Speaking with MzGee on the
Feminine Friday edition of the ‘Day Break Hitz’ show on Hitz FM, the
actress explained that she had to hustle after the death of her father.
“I once sold iced water, yeah I did, I sold water in Tema,” she said.
to that perception, she said while growing up, she had to work hard in
order to get food to eat and build a future for herself.
Nikki Samonas, born Nikoletta Samonas, explained that life would have been much easier if her father was alive.
father was one of the richest men in Greece so I believe if he were to
be alive things would have been easier,” she explained.
to Nikki, her “dad was a captain with three vessels. He was working on
the west coast during the Monrovia war. He was poisoned.
I didn’t have that fatherly love, I always want to have someone who
will be there for me all the time, show me all the care.”
