Otiko accessorized her look with pearls; earrings and necklace. She styled her African themed-appearance with mild makeup looking gorgeous as always.

According to the Minister, "I can relate better to the youth because I’m a ‘swagger’ mama and I believe I’m the best person to encourage the youth because they feel comfortable with me. They see me and they say ‘I want to be like you. The youth I am dealing with are okay with me and I am okay with them and that is what matters the most.”

Delving into her background, Otiko’s mother’s brother is John Mahama’s father. So she is closely related to the very man she described as having the devil’s heart.
