Ghanaian actress, Haillie Sumney has said many African actors risk contracting sexually transmitted diseases, STDs with their lifestyle.
The actress who quit her nursing career at the Riverside Hospital, USA, for acting in Africa, said that many African entertainers do not believe in protection during sex.
“Many African actors stand the risk of contracting Sexually Transmitted Diseases and HIV; I say this because African people can be very promiscuous and a lot of them do not believe in using condoms or using protection. They feel like they are ‘supermen’, and that HIV is not real.
“I have friends and I talk to them, especially my male friends and a lot of them say that they do not use protection because they do not like it and that is the only reason that they give. When you mention HIV, a lot of them act as if it does not exist. So I would say that a lot of them are susceptible to HIV and STDs.
