In a documentary entitled “Sex on the Beach” aired Sunday evening on the British public-service free-to-air television network Channel four, 58 year old Michelle is proudly seen bragging about her true love story with a young Gambian boy. Michelle says there’s nothing fake about her romance with Gambian Ebou, despite claims that older Western women fly to The Gambia to bed younger men.
Michelle, 58 is a British gran married to a Gambian “toy boy” Ebou. As stories often paint UK grans visiting Gambia often for sex, former social worker Michelle has blasted claims their romance with Gambian boys is fake. According to Michelle, European women who get conned into handing over their life savings are just “stupid”.
The Gambia is branded in the Tv documentary as “The Granbia” according to the story tellers who cite critics alleging that “hundreds of older Western women fly there to bed younger men”. They also claim that many of them lose all their retirement money.
Apparently, the story is different for Michelle who married handyman Ebou in 2018 after a year together. She says not all men in The Gambia are after wealthy women to fund their lives. She added: “Not everybody who goes to the Gambia is having sex on the beach. I know a lot of people like me who have been with their husbands for years.”
Michelle, who stars in the C4 documentary “Sex on the Beach”, fell for Ebou after meeting him on holiday in The Gambia.
Within a year of speaking over WhatsApp the pair tied the knot, with none of her three children attending the wedding.
But while Michelle says their relationship is the real deal, C4 investigators raise serious questions that she might be set to become another shocking statistic.
Michelle does not really know how old her husband is and a luxury home he claims to have built for them is exposed as a rental property.
Investigator Seyi Rhodes said: “I can see that they’re quite close, but he tells me he’s 46 and Michelle was adamant he’s 50. When I add all the other inconsistencies, like the size and luxuriousness of the house, the speed with which it was built and the fact she says she didn’t pay anything towards it, I don’t think I’ve got the full picture. Michelle insists she’s in control, and I hope that she is.”
But Michelle is very comfortable in her love romance with Ebou. She believes that women who lose it all in a relationship with a Gambia toy boy have no one but themselves to blame.
“I blame the women because if you meet a guy who lives on the beach, who’s got nothing, he’s got no home, he lives in a tin shack or whatever, and then you’re sending him £1,000 here and there, you’ve got to be stupid. They say they get duped by the sex. If you want to have sex, you can be with a prostitute and pay for it” Michelle said in the film.
