Ben Brako, veteran Highlife artiste has described his wife, Dr. Efua Brako as the soulmate he found in his third marriage.
On the Delay Show, the singer divulged he strongly believes that he and his wife truly belong together because of the similarities they share.
“There are many points of attraction in my current marriage. When someone is really in love with you, and you with them, it is even difficult to be apart and you are always in others space happily,” the singer said.
Speaking on why his previous marriages came to an end, he said, “In my first marriage, we got married in Ghana, it was in the early ’80s. We had two kids together, one in Ghana and the other in London. It didn’t work, after a point, we had a different interest. There was a second one, and there was a third.”
“In the second one, I think the main reason was that there was the lack of intensity and also there was separation for a long time…in my second marriage, we also had two kids. I have been married to my third wife for just about 5 years, we don’t have kids together,” Ben Brako continued.
In answering the question as to whether he believed his third and current wife was his soul mate, he said, “Very much so, the whole relationship is so different, it is very intense and personal. I think when they first push you into marriage, you wouldn’t know what it is about and you are hoping it will turn out well at the end.”
The couple has been the object of criticism due to the half naked pictures of themselves they share on social media. However, Ben defended this saying it is natural for Africans to not wear too many clothes.
“It is really my passion. We didn’t expose any bits… it is natural for us to be not too clad because of the nature of our atmosphere and everything. Traditionally you could find this during the Dipo rites, previously people use to walk about just wearing a thin cloth around their waist and their breasts hanging out and it was normal,” he spelled out.
