Miss Trudy, Kenyan YouTube sensation and spouse to Ghanaian YouTuber Wode Maya, found herself in trouble after an ordeal at a US airport led to her missing her flight.

For Miss Trudy, this wasn’t her first brush with such trouble, as she recounted on her YouTube channel.

I have just been told to sit down, no one is talking to me and the plane is about to leave do not understand,” Trudy lamented.

She explained that officials demanded a return ticket from Ghana, despite her clarification that she doesn’t reside there permanently.

They needed a return ticket from Ghana and I told them I did not live in Ghana. They asked for an ID and I told them I am married in Ghana. I showed them my marriage certificate to no avail. I am so frustrated I do not understand why this is happening to me” she expressed.

Trudy elaborated on the challenges of acquiring citizenship in Ghana as a foreigner.

Foreigners do not get identification cards immediately and I explained that to them.” she noted. Her pleas however seemed to fall on deaf ears this time around.

When I was here two days ago I passed through but today they are frustrating me. Living in Miami is so expensive. My cards are not working! The plane left me for no good reason. They thought my marriage was fake,” she shared in exasperation.

The popular YouTuber was forced to spend the night at the hotel reception due to card issues. “I called the bank and they said they are working on it,” she added, highlighting the added inconvenience.

Despite the tribulations, there was a silver lining. Trudy eventually managed to secure a flight, with the airline graciously upgrading her to Business class.
