Controversial Actress Belinda Effah has announced that she has changed her name to Grace-Charis Bassey, which we thought coincided with the unveiling of her new business name.
In an Instagram post the actress shared, she revealed that her stepbrother renamed her and her sisters because he thought they needed an English name, without making a thorough research about the names he gave them. She said she needed to change her name after learning that it meant “pretty serpent”.
The actress wrote:
