Oluwatoyin Adewale, popularly known as Mama T is a regular face in Yoruba home videos. The Lagos State Polytechnic graduate of Business Administration who is married to a producer, Sunday Adewale, in this interview speaks on her fashion preferences. Excerpts:
DEFINITION of style.
STYLE, to me, is putting on anything that fits anything that sits well on me, anything that makes me happy. My style is simple but classic. My dressing is usually determined by occasions, events and mood.
Nothing special, I eat good food, take a lot of water and do little exercises. For my skin, I use Makari body lotion, Mary Kay facial toner. I use mostly Mary Kay products because I discovered that the product is good for my skin. I go for massage and exfoliation once in a month or at times once in two months but it all depends on how free I am. I also do facials every fortnight. I use my make-up moderately.
,b>Choice of accessories.
I love wristwatches and necklaces a lot, I wear silver and gold colour depending on my dressing

Opinion on toning.
It is okay to maintain one's colour and keep the skin glowing but bleaching is a capital no.
On cosmetic surgery.
There is always a reason for taking a step, I do not think I have any reason to do it but for those that believe in it, good luck to them, so far it makes them happy
My take on provocative dressing.
It depends on individuals, your style may not be my style so, provocative dressing is not my style, one man's food is another man's poison
I go on a special trip with my family.
My hair and nails.
I have a very good hair stylist who knows how to handle my hair. Most times I fix Brazilian hair or leave it naturally. For my nails, I do manicure often but at times, I fix artificial nails especially when going for an outing.

Nothing. I'm happy with the way I am.
