On Instagram, Hadar dazzled fans while brandishing her graceful legs in a short dress. Her braided hair was styled in a high bun while she left tresses out.

She matched her outfit with a pair of low-heeled shoes as she lay sprawled on a custom-styled leopard print chair.

In her caption, Hadar informed fans that the unique looking furniture was a new fit in mom's new house while adding in a lighthearted manner that it has become her favorite spot in the house.


Although Hadar seems to be living her best life, growing up was a bit tumultuous due to her parent's failed marriage.

ILOSM reports that Akosua and Singleton became man and wife in 1996, but their matrimony was short-lived as they got divorced the following year. 

After going their separate ways, the pair saw each other in and out of courtrooms for a while over their daughter's welfare. In 2015, Busia took Singleton to court, where she demanded that he became more involved in Hadar's education.


At the time, Akosua accused the "Boyz N The Hood" actor of evading the payment of tuition fees while she requested a sum of $204,056.

It seems Hadar has put all behind her as she is now grown, and according to GLOBINTEL, she has chosen a career in her celebrity parents' path.

The young adult graduated from the Interlochen Arts Academy and made her movie debut in 2003 when she appeared in "Tears of the Sun."


Towards Hadar Singleton's adult life, her parents became more civil to each other. After John's passing in April 2019, the Ghanaian Hollywood icon penned a heartfelt tribute to the late celebrity.

AMEYAW DEBRAH shares that Busia took to Instagram, where she shared some throwback images of her memories with him. Her lengthy write up was emotional and had fans welling up with condolences.


Besides being married to John Singleton and dominating Hollywood with her sterling act in "The Color Purple," Akosua has some interesting facts about her background.

HEAVY shares that the African beauty comes from a royal house and is a Ghanaian princess from the Royal House of Wenchi. Her father, Dr. Kofi Abrefa Busia, was Ghana's prime minister at the time of her birth.

Although she is a princess, Akosua spent most of her life attending schools in other countries and ultimately landing a career in Hollywood.
