UK-based Ghanaian singer and performer Stephanie Benson has disclosed she faced strong opposition at home when she decided to marry her White husband.
The singer disclosed this on the occasion of the 31 anniversary of her marriage on Wednesday, 17 June 2020.
According to the singer, although her uncle was opposed to her decision to get married to a man of a different race, she went ahead and has never regretted her decision.
In a post on Instagram, the Jazz Queen wrote: “31 years ago at 3pm, 17th June, 2 hours 45 mins, he waited at the Church while I was dealing with strong opposition at home, from my Uncle who hated the idea of my marrying a man of a diifferent race. Unfearing and unraffled, I stood my ground and finally arrived to say “I do” to the most Amazing man anyone could ever be lucky enough to have. This Beautiful Man patiently waited for me and for 31 years his patience has never diminished. Take time to find your Soul Mate and nothing less will do. I love you Jonathan.”
Stephanie Benson and her husband have five children, two boys and three girls.
