Brigitte Sossou Perenyi spent the early part of her life as a ‘wife of the gods.’

At the age of seven, she was seperated from her parents to begin a new life in ritual servitude – as atonement for a crime committed by a family member.

The centuries-old tradition named ‘Trokosi‘ is practiced amongst Ewes in Ghana, Togo and Benin.

A report by Christiane Amanpour then of CBS led to the release, and adoption of Perenyi by an American, Mr. Kenneth Perenyi.

She recently shared with Berla Mundi on ‘The Late Afternoon Show’ her experiences, gaining her freedom, becoming an activist to free more girls and a lot more.

Watch below.

The Late Afternoon Show delves into social issues, real life stories and lifestyle from the point of the young, fun and vibrant adult.

With a mixed bag of everything that is discussed among the new generation, the show tends to identify with the emotions of people whiles seeking to answer often asked questions on health, wealth, fashion, cuisine, entertainment and more.

The idea is to have a show that borders on all aspects of life to cater for various age brackets depending on their mood and interest.
