Sexy Ghanaian musician Stephanie Benson has laughed off several criticisms about her dressing stating she does not dress to please anyone.
Stephanie, who is a sister to songstress Akosua Agyapong, has over the years received a lot of flak from sections of the public over her “provocative” dressing with some saying her fashion sense is an affront to Ghanaian culture.
The musician has been spotted at several events revealing more than necessary and her dressing most often raises eyebrows wherever she goes.
Reacting to the constant flak she has suffered at the hands of Ghanaians, the bubbly singer told Myjoyonline.com and NaijaTooSure in an interview that her dressing is informed by her feelings and she is not perturbed by the criticisms.
“I can just go out and be covered to my neck and wear boots [but] sometimes I feel like wearing a short skirt. You should go with whatever you are feeling at the time. If I feel good, I want to be wearing what makes me feel good,” she noted.
According to her, her choice of cloths is “not really about anybody else; I am not dressing to please anybody I dress to please myself. I’m married, I have five children [and] I am entitled to wear whatever I want to wear if it looks really ridiculous, my husband will tell me…
“He loves what I wear so for that reason I don’t really care much what anybody has to say. I don’t go over the top. Some of the see through things, [I usually wear] are body stalking.”
Stephanie stressed that, “I am pass people judging me. To be honest with you I really don’t care. People need to accept me for who I am. I’m just one of those people that do what they want to do. I’ve been married for 25 years and never cheated on my husband [and] I have five children who are very successful.”
She observed that people are always worried about what others are thinking about them “and that affects our music too,” but stressed that, Ghanaians need to be a little bit accommodating.
The sexy musician urged people not to be quick in judging others due to what they wear, stressing some persons who seem decent with their dressing could be “stupid.”
Touching on accusations that she is a total deviation from her sister, Akosua Agyapong, who sings gospel music, she noted that while they are related, it will be wrong for people to compare their personalities. Her sister, Stephanie added, does “come to me to dress her.”
