‘Love don’t cost a thing’ or does it? The issue of love is always complex because there is no “one cap fits all” prescription. To some, love is best found in your home town /village whiles to others, love knows no bounds.

A major component of being a celebrity is the fact that you’ll travel a lot and as a result, there’s that possibility that during one of your travels, you’ll find love even if you didn’t plan for it. Here, we’ll take a look at some of our celebrities who found love beyond the borders of Ghana.
