Ghanaian actress Jessica Williams has revealed on national Television that the name by which she is known is not her actual name.
Apparently, actress Jessica Williams’ name is not her real name, it is just her showbiz name.
This should not be shocking but what is amazing about it is that the name ‘Jessica Williams’ does not sound anywhere close to the alias’s we are used to. Talk of ill Win – Kwadwo Nkansah, Agya Koo – Kofi Adu, Maame Dokono – Grace Omaboe and the likes.
Hence the need to find out what her actual name is and why she is using the name, Jessica Williams.
Speaking on e.TV Ghana’s ‘The Late Nite Celebrity Show with Foster Romanus she said “I was born Joyce Williams but when I was entering into the showbiz industry, I wanted something that was catchy even though Joyce Williams is a nice name. I felt when you hear Jessica Williams, you will want to know who that person is. The name was striking, that’s what I felt,” she revealed.
When Foster enquired if she had sworn an affidavit to this effect, she said, “No I haven’t done that yet, I’m still maintaining my Joyce.
Jessica is just showbiz name; just like Sarkodie has his showbiz name so do I. Jessica is my showbiz name.
