Ghanaians actress Princess Adwoa Agyapomaa popularly known as Mylisa has taken her acting craft into the literary space.
Born in the Oyoko Royal Clan in Kumasi, the actress recently released her first book titled: "What Nobody Will Tell You", a book that interrogates issues of marriage and relationships.
The book navigates some of today's relationship and marriage challenges, exploring some common themes such as trauma, depression, sexual abuse, among others.
According to the actress, getting to experience the reality of her screenplay was one of the major factors that led her in writing her first book and she remains hopeful of impacting lives through her writing skills.
She said: “Acting and reality are two different worlds and for me, I pursued this adventure to unravel the secret world and some of the experiences I witnessed were mind-boggling.
"It's been years of hard work to finally release the book and I'm grateful to all who helped make this dream a reality and I hope it serves its purpose of changing lives and making positive impacts"..
She added that proceeds made from the sales of the book will directly go into her "Mylisa Foundation" which seeks to address issues of abuse across genders especially for men who have been physically and mentally abused by their relatives.
"My philanthropic works seek to divulge issues of sexual abuse as we seek to help victims conquer various forms of anxiety and depression. So anyone who buys my book contributes to my foundation.
"I am very passionate about this societal challenge especially for the male gender because I believe they also deserve equal attention as the female gender, so I want to dedicate more of my efforts in addressing it," she stated.
Mylisa has been touted as one of the fastest rising actresses on the African continent having starred in popular Nigerian movies "Oh GhaNaija" and "Millions Men".
Mylisa, who is a model, has been featured on the cover page of the Adehye3 Magazine as well as being a realtor in Ghana.
