If you are looking for an article that says that would deny or confirm Ghanaian star actor, John Dumelo's alleged marriage to US-based 'actress' and nurse, Harrina Alexander, then this story this isn't the one. This is merely a character assessment of Harrina, from the time I broke the story to now – which in my book paints her as a chronic liar and an attention seeker. Well, and also perhaps to go easy on my conscience for starting this whole wahala, though I'm sure that if I hadn't published it first, someone else would.
I felt the evidence of the 'marriage certificate' was good enough to break the story and that's why I did in the first place. I don't think John's explanation of the marriage certificate make absolute sense but I will give him the benefit of doubt and wait to see the documentary he claims led to this whole caboodle. And I would also throw a challenge to Harinna to go beyond just her claims that John is her husband and provide us more proof. Though not absolutely logical, I think that for someone who is clearly happy to be married to John Dumelo, I find it hard to believe that the only picture of Harrina and John together is one from a club event (taken by the organizers of the event for their galleries, it can easily pass for a photo of John with a fan in one of those US clubs) – what happened to wedding photos, and all those other memorable moments in between? The moments that clearly made Harrina love John so much, as she claims.
I had decided not to write about the issue again until I saw the video of a 'mock' interview posted online. The video came off to me as though Harrina had gotten her brother to record her sitting in front of her makeup drawer with a camera phone. The line of questioning looked too rehearsed, which made me conclude that she must be enjoying her relevance now in the spotlight. This therefore led me to write this article so that hopefully, people would know what kind of character I have come to know Harrina to be.
“It's funny how media hype things up.. I am not married to this guy. We did a movie together. But I don't even know how they spelled my name on this fake stuff…”
The comments she left on the blog were automatically replicated on her facebook wall and soon other websites and blogs published that she had denied marrying John via her facebook. So I became interested to find out more, and well prove that I don't do mediocre blogging (HAHAHA). I went back to the email I received to check the address and use that to search on facebook to see if I would find the actual person who sent me the email (since 'everyone' is on facebook nowadays). I keyed in the email address and surprisingly the same facebook user that had denied the story popped up. Interesting right? Since I have reached my facebook friend limit I couldn't send her a request so I decided to follow her instead. Once she noted that I was following her, she followed back and immediately left a comment on my wall saying, “All lies I must say, thanks for the fake story about me and John.”
I probed further and we started talking on my wall (publicly) about the details of the incident. She explained that the certificate was fake, and it was meant for a movie. Then she played smart by asking me how I got the certificate. I told her someone sent me an email with an email that starts with 'sexycoco1987' and immediately she answered that, that was an email for her friend. Then I said to her “when u search for sexycoco1987 on facebook, guess who pops up”.
Knowing that I was on to her and that our conversation was public, she asked me to rather speak to her in private via facebook messaging. When we went private, she asked me to delete our conversations from my wall, which I did but not after I had grabbed my screenshots. She immediately changed her story to say that, she was indeed married to John Dumelo but had to deny the story because Jihn was not happy. This forced me to write another article titled, More Confusion: John Dumelo says marriage is fake, alleged wife speaks out to confirm marriage
Later, John finally spoke to Peace FM about the whole story and denied being married. So I published that story together with comments that Harrina had made to me on facebook regarding John being a cheat and that she was going to divorce him. The article was titled, Twisted Tale: John Dumelo opens up about secret marriage and alleged wife calls for divorce!!!
But it seemed that Harrina wasn't happy that I published screenshots of our conversation and so she asked me to stop publishing her comments, and she made her facebook inactive to me. I figured that she had realized I wasn't to be pawned and so she stopped talking to me and started talking to other reporters who wanted to grant her more audience.
