I am Akosua Acheampomaa and have lived in Ghana all my life. I lived with my uncle when mummy died at the age of five. Even though I didn't know my father until death came for my mother.
I am currently 25 years old and will turn 26 this August. As the elders keep repeating that life is full of uncertainty, I don't doubt them because I have also lived it.
The day before my wedding, I received one of the most shocking messages of my life. My uncle, with whom I lived for nearly 20 years, confessed to me. I knew he was my uncle without knowing that he was my real father. He told me that he and my mother were divorced two years after they married and he didn't want his second wife to find out that he had a child somewhere. So he decided to call me his nephew.
I have told my husband that my father and mother are dead and the one living with me is my uncle. My uncle has two children beside me.
After telling me, I was very confused and I couldn't tell my husband because it was only the day before our wedding. We are at a wedding right now and I don't know if I should call my uncle and husband for a date and tell my uncle the story or invite his wife.
