Stephanie Benson, the UK-based Ghanaian singer has said her sister, noted Gospel musician Akosua Adjepong, is just as ‘wild and crazy’ as she is.
According to her, Akosua is the sibling she is closest to in their family and they share the same adventurous spirit.
She stated that it is only in recent times, that Akosua has toned down her ‘wild’ side, in a bid to fit into what is the norm in Ghanaian culture.
“She’s refined to Ghana in terms of what you guys want to hear from her; I am not that person. I am a person who is as free as they can be. I don’t say anything that someone must hear; I don’t cater for anybody’s needs [and] I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings either. But I need to be me, and nobody’s gonna stop that,” Benson said, according to a MyJoyOnline.com report.
The stunning 50 year-old singer is known for her sultry fashion sense, and equally saucy music videos.
Unlike her sister Akosua, Stephanie chose Afropop music as her music genre and has shown to have a more 'bolder' side in choice of outfits and how she lives her life.
She’s been criticized by a large section of the public, for some outfits she has worn, especially regarding the see-through gown she wore to the 2017 Ghana Music Awards.
