Speaking in an exclusive interview with News One on Tuesday about winning Ghana’s most stylish movie star of the year at the 2017 Glitz Style Awards, she said her style doesn’t come cheap.

It’s important to me that things look nice and of course of good quality so the way I dress is the natural extension of my appreciation of aesthetics,” Zynnell revealed.
