Ghana-based Gambian actress, Princess Shyngle has admitted to living a mirage lifestyle which she did regret now.

The lovely actress and model, in a post on her Instagram page, confessed to having showed-off, living a fake life but upon realization and advise from her parents, she has put the lavish lifestyle behind her and living according to what she earns.

Explaining why she saw no need to rent a four-bedroom house, fly business class, buy designer shoes and bags, Shyngle said thatย were the dumbest things she ever did, trying so hard to impress the world, using her every penny to look expensive while her bank account was empty.

The actress disclosed that she is now being mocked, called classless and cheap by those she called real and genuine friends because she is now living in a studio apartment, using uber services, not patronising designer fashion accessories and flies economy.

According to her, life is so simple but people tend to make it hard on themselves just to impress people.

She noted that a satisfied life is better than a successful life because a person’s success is measured by others, but the individual’s satisfaction is measured by their own soul, mind and heart.

“The same people that called me stupid, desperate, a show-off and runs girl when I bought my Porsche are the same people laughing at me, calling me a broke celebrity because I sold my car and now use uber \ud83d\ude02. The same people that called me useless, show-off, stupid and not smart when I rented and lived in a 4 bedroom house are the same people laughing at me now, calling me a disgrace, a broke slay queen because I now live in a studio apartment \ud83d\ude02. The same people that called me a show-off, living a fake life because I used to fly business class and post pictures are the same people calling me broke and useless cuz I fly economy and post it \ud83d\ude02. The same people that called me ashawo because I used to buy designer shoes and bags ( LV, Gucci, Prada), are the same people calling me broke, classless and cheap because I now buy and wear ( Primark, Zara, h&m ) \ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02. Buying a Porche, renting a four-bedroom house, flying business class and spending on designers were the dumbest things I ever did, I was trying so hard to impress the world and the gram, using my every penny to look expensive while my bank account was empty \ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02 but I thank God for my parents for slapping sense into me and got me to get rid of all the things I didn\u2019t need and be myself. They thought me to invest in lands, properties, shares, bank stocks etc. I now live on a monthly budget, I now pay myself salary every month out of my investments. I\u2019m literally living my best life, I\u2019m happy with myself and the life I\u2019m living, I now have real and genuine friends that are with me for me and not for what they think I have. Life is so simple but we tend to make it hard on ourselves just to impress people but let me let you know one thing, you can never ever impress people, try and live a satisfied life because a satisfied life is better than a successful life. Because our success is measured by others, but our satisfaction is measured by our own soul, mind and heart. Start planning for your future, for the next 5 \/ 10 years and use your money wisely \u2764\ufe0f.I hope my tbt will inspire someone out there.”

Princess Shyngle is a well known Ghana-based actress who is known for doing great movies. The actress is famous not only for roles in the movies she acts but also because of her almost perfect Barbie figure.

Princess started out as an events organizer when she founded her own events company known as Princess promotions.

Her entry into acting was actually unplanned. Princess was persuaded to try out for an audition seeking a talented Gambian actress to represent the country in Next movie star Africa competition. On the insistence of a friend, while at work, she agreed to attend the audition the next day.

She impressed the judges who remarked positively about her performance that day. She later got a call informing her that she had won a spot with 16 more contestants from different African countries.
