She was the subject of small talk last year when she wore a see-through dress that revealed her underwear at the Channel O Music Video Awards held in South Africa.
Only last week, she posted a picture of herself lying stark naked on a bed on a social media site which raised a considerable number of eyebrows and generated a lot of debate.
But in the middle of all the hullabaloo, the Uncle Obama hitmaker, Deborah Vanessa, has said that she does not mind if people see her as an attention seeker.
“Yes I love attention; I have always loved attention since I was a kid so if people see me as such, I have no problem with that. All I know is that I’m me and I have to celebrate myself,” she told Showbiz.
Commenting on her latest nuud post, she said; “ that picture was among others that were taken way back in June this year and it was not my intention to upload it online, I didn’t post it myself but when I noticed how people liked and re-tweeted it, I decided to let go. But truth be told, I have a nice body so I need to celebrate it.
“Many women will do all kinds of things to get the kind of body I have been blessed with so why should I hide it? I have a nice skin tone, no scars, and no stretch marks so I need to flaunt what I have been blessed with.”
Talking about her latest single, Borla which was released two weeks ago, Deborah Vanessa aka Sister Debbie said she chose that title because, she wanted her music to be unique. “Borla is such a catchy word”, she said.
Eventhough the story line of the song has a break up theme, the execution in the video took a different turn where she used trash cans and explaining the motive behind that, the Uncle Obama singer said; “yes, the song is a break-up song but I decided to use a different twist in the music video because I wanted to be different. The same message has been tackled in the same way over and over again and I did not want to toe the same line”.
