Definition of fashion
Fashion is looking good. Knowing how to combine things, to look elegant. Not crazy, though, but at least stylish.

Style of dressing
I’m a casual person. I’m mostly on my jeans because I don’t even joke with it, really! I also love flat slippers or sandals.

Most cherished possession
My laptop.
Most expensive item
One of my jeans trousers, but basically, I could buy jeans, for any amount of money.

Family background
I’m the fourth amongst eight children. My mum is a civil servant; a teacher, while my dad is a businessman.

Favourite colours
I love yellow because it’s flashy and I like flashy colours.

Most favourite piece of clothing
My jeans!

How do you combine modeling and schooling?
It’s really not been easy because most of my jobs are from Lagos and I school in Ogun State. Sometimes, I have to skip classes just to meet up, but it has just been God by my side.

Turn on
I like ambitious people

Turn off
I hate pretence; it puts me off

Happiest moment
The day I won Miss Expo Plus 2008 contest. It was actually the first time I actually went for a contest. I was very happy.

Most embarrassing moment
I have had none in recent times

I love challenges a lot and that is the more reason why I go for contests. I know I will be contesting with some other people and that will serve as a source of inspiration for me.

Describe yourself in three words
I’m cool headed, interesting and loving.

Favourite body product
I love Nature Essence; it suits my skin.

Philosophy of life
Life is like a bicycle; when you stop pedaling, you will definitely fall.
If you were given an opportunity to change something in Nigeria, what would it be?
It will be corruption. If we can change that, Nigeria will be a better place.
