Ghanaian gospel musician cum fashionista Empress Gifty and her husband Hopeson Adorye who is a widely known politician to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) was facing a scandal that involves their decorator.
Their issues have been resolved and the couple has been known for being controversial and gospel musician has come out with a response.
She said: “No, I don’t agree with those who say we are controversial. Maybe, they are not close to us but we are very simple people and we adore people. Those who are close to us will attest that we are very humble.
“We say things as they are and you know Ghanaians don’t like the truth so people probably have issues with us because we tell it as it is without massaging it. When there is an issue, the way I will deal with it may be different from how others may handle it but that is me,” she stated.
People have reacted that, the gospel musician is too fashionable for a gospel musician to engage in those activities and she replied as “People know that I love fashion. I am a fashion designer myself.
“I have not seen anywhere in the Bible that you have to look dirty before you can worship God; no, I have not seen that anywhere. It is said that all good things come from above which means they come from God so if I am representing this God who created me and gave me this gift then I need to do it well and I don’t see anything wrong with that.
“Whatever I do for God I do it with all my strength and my might and I do it very well. I don’t take anything for granted in my work as a minister and if my fashion sense has to praise my maker, so be it,” she said.
