Multifaceted Ghanaian celebrity Mimi Andani Michaels has officially announced that her marriage of eight years has ended.
In a long Instagram post on November 15, the former Big Brother Africa housemate disclosed that she has been divorced for over a year now.
Without disclosing what triggered the decision, Mimi said she and her husband, Nana Michaels, are now focused on co-parenting without letting their issues affect their only child.
The Golden Movie Awards founder explained that the announcement had become necessary because she is still being introduced as “Mrs Michaels” at events.
According to her, she dislikes the fact that people form ideas in their head and look at her with shock when they spot her at certain places with male friends in a comfortable position, hence her decision to make her divorce public.
Mimi urged that henceforth people should simply refer to her as ‘Mimi Andani’

“It would have been totally unnecessary to do this but being in the media space and having to explain myself at every move I make is becoming tiring, so, I will like to bring to your notice that I, Mimi Andani is no longer the wife of Nana Michaels.,we have actually been divorced for close to a year now and was separated for more than a year before finalizing our divorce. Having cleared this, I will be glad if everyone refers to me as Simply Mimi or Marvella Maame and in the case of official spaces, Mimi Andani
“This notice has become important because most of our clients, associates and friends will call me randomly talking about something I am not privy to, people will see me at events and scream Mrs Michaels, when I am introduced at corporate spaces I am always introduced as Mrs Michaels etc.
“Importantly people look at me with a shock when they see me at places/events with male friends in a certain comfortable position and I don’t want people forming ideas and making conclusions about me for lack of information, protecting my corporate image is important to me.
“Therefore, please note that my 8yrs marriage has come to an end fortunately or unfortunately. My ex-husband and I, are amicably giving the only child between us all the love and support a child needs from her parent and we try as much as possible to separate our issues from our child! So far, so good!” her post read.
