Actress, Belinda Effah Reveals Reason Behind Name Change to Grace-Charis Bassey

Nollywood actress formerly known as Belinda Effah has revealed the reason she changed her name to Grace-Charis Bassey.

In an interview with Punch, the Efik beauty disclosed that just like men if faith on the Bible, a divine encounter with God brought about the name change.

“I did not just decide to change my name. I changed it because I had a divine encounter with God last year and He changed my name from Belinda to Grace. Personally, I had wanted to change my name some years ago. Belinda has diverse meanings. Some people say it means ‘beauty’, but Linda means serpent. So, Belinda literally means Beautiful Serpent. God knew everything from the beginning and He knows what’s best for me, so He decided to change my name,” she said.

Recall that a few months ago, the actress took to social media pages reflect this new development and share the newspaper publication of her name change.

Speaking on how this name change will affect the Belinda Effah brand she has spent years building, Bassey replied,

“For me, this is like rebranding. One has to have a strategy to reposition oneself in the forefront again. I am very excited to be doing this. I don’t mind rebranding. People already know the face; it’s just about relating the (new) name to the face. Companies rebrand all the time and my case is not different. Changing my name does not make me a different person.”
