Contrary to allegations that her wealthy father left behind certain properties, popular Ghanaian socialite Xandy Kamel revealed that she works hard to make ends meet.
In order to feed herself, Xandy stated it gets to the point where she has to beg for help, dispelling assertions that she leads a comfortable existence.
“I am not comfortable, I hustle. It gets to a point where I beg before I eat. It gets to a point, which means I still do that. Someone will think my father was rich and maybe he left me properties and all that but he didn’t leave behind the Bank of Ghana in our room. My father was a very strict person so we didn’t experience the life rich people usually experience,” she stated in an interview.
She wasn’t born with a silver spoon in her mouth, Xandy Kamel remarked, adding that her late father reached the position of Member of Parliament after a long period of difficulty for the family.
“My father was a teacher when I was born. How much were they even taking at that time? My mother was also selling jewelleries but she stopped at a point and she started selling fish. She stopped and then started selling khebab. I assisted her in selling the khebab by roaming the streets and markets with it. I used to walk about three hours to school. For my late father’s riches or status, it was just recent and also short.”
Henry Ford Kofi Kamel, the late father of Xandy Kamel, was a Ghanaian politician who represented the Buem constituency in the House of Representatives in 2004 as the Volta Regional Minister. On December 25, 2012, he died.
