Model, Television host and fashion designer Deborah Vannesa whose song won her an international interview on CNN has revealed that her pet monkey resembles American singer, songwriter, rapper and actor Chris Brown.

Interestingly, Deborah, sister of Wanlov De Kubolor, has named her monkey Kiko aka Kiko-Brieezy, the same nickname Chris brown uses.

Monkey Kiko can be described as a ‘celebrity monkey’ after it appeared in a CNN interview for the role it played in the ‘Uncle Obama’ hit-track and also followed Deborah to some of her public music performances.

“I’m not saying Chris Brown looks like a monkey but rather, my monkey looks like Chris Brown…The funny thing is, Chris Brown also owns a monkey and we both posted pictures of our monkeys on twitter”, Deborah told NEWS-ONE in an exclusive interview.

The ‘Uncle Obama’ hit maker also added that not only did the 11-month-year-old monkey in a way looked like Chris Brown but it had blonde hair and could dance like him too.

Deborah also revealed to NEWS-ONE that she was planning on getting a ‘girlfriend’ monkey for Kiko since it sometimes gets lonely.

The former late night celebrity show host who replaced Dzifa briefly on Etv said she fed her famous monkey with grapes, pears, apple and bananas from the Koala shopping centre.

“My monkey eats a lot of fruits, boiled yam, rice and stew but I don’t give Kiki meat because it is not healthy for him.”

The monkey, whose scientific name is ‘patas monkey’, is a ground-dwelling monkey found around semi-arid areas of West Africa, and into East Africa was said to have been bought in the Northern part of Ghana.


Deborah Vanessa Owusu-Bonsu was born in Ghana to an Ashanti father and a Romanian mother. She grew up in Accra, attended Christ the King International School and proceeded to Wesley Girls High School.

She graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Publishing Studies from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in Ghana followed by a Master’s in Book/Journal Publishing from the University of the Arts, London.

Naturally being the centre of attention since her childhood, Deborah has always been a ‘show’ person of sorts and has since found the right balance between corporate work and the entertainment industry.

Her experience as a mentor through the Mannequin Academy, an initiative to give industry training to both professional and amateur models that she co-founded, gave her the confidence that she had the strength to take on greater things.

Deborah is going from strength to strength, multiplying experiences as a TV personality and a public figure, and constantly inspires people.

With Miss Ghana 2010, she found a way to blend her many passions for fashion, mentoring, presenting and representing Ghana’s beauty and now, as eTV Ghana’s host of the Late Nite Celebrity Show, she is set to be a significant player on Ghana’s cultural scene and the best is yet to come.

So far, she has won several awards including Best Dressed Celebrity on Fashion101 Ghana Season1, Ranked 3rd Hottest Female Celebrity on 4SyteTV Ghana, Vodafone 3030 Star 2010 and 1st Runner-Up Miss Malaika Ghana 2004
