That looks to me like a stock photo, which almost certainly originated neither in Benin, nor with the user which uploaded it.
edit: yeah, uploading it to cydral and searching for similar images, I see it used quite often. I think it's one of those example images which comes with paint shop pro or a similar image editing program. Definitely not a good fit for featuring, and if you don't mind, I'm going to remove it from the Benin guide article as well.
