“Stephanie and I are not having an affair” - artiste reveals

Ghanaian Reggae and Dancehall artiste Samini has finally addressed the risqué photos he snapped with fellow Ghanaian Afro-pop and jazz artiste, Stephanie Benson.

The 35 year old singer during a one-on-one exclusive interview at Pulse studios disclosed that he and Stephanie were strictly professional and the photo shoot depicting the romance between them was purely on a professional grounds.

Samini in a bid to downplay the entire shoot said he likes to let loose and go shirtless when the weather was humid.


“I like to take off my shirt when it’s hot. Ghana is hot”

Asked if he found nothing wrong with taking such sultry pictures with a married woman he acknowledged that indeed she is hitched and so he would not engage in any activity that a married woman should not be doing. He iterated that as both are artists, the shoot should be viewed from a creative standpoint.

“Yes of course somebody’s wife and so I would not be doing anything that’s not supposed to be done with someone’s wife. Once she is an artist and I am an artist as well… you get the clue?”

Social media went on a frenzy when the duo shared photos of their project and left a lot of people wondering if there was something amorous between them.


Photos released to the public showed a Samini with his belt hanging loose while he groped Stephanie Benson’s thigh and a host of other noteworthy moments.

The “Linda” hitmaker is currently on a media tour promoting his new single “My own”.
