Could you tell me precisely what has changed about you since you were crowned the Nigeria Next Super Model in 2009?
Well, my understanding of life, my education, my person, my modelling life, sense of judgment, relationship with people and knowing how to prioritize my activities and so on are all that have changed about me.
So, what have you been doing since then?
I have been doing some jobs. Immediately I won the Nigeria Next Super Model, I travelled to Bulgaria for the Best Model of the World. I went late, so I couldn’t partake in the entire contest. After the contest, I came back to Nigeria. Since then, I have been in Nigeria. I was supposed to go to South Africa, but I couldn’t go due to my new contract.
How do you feel being the Face of Lotto Nigeria?
Oh! It is really wonderful, especially when I consider the fame, the salary and the fact that I am a presenter.
What do you think of the fashion industry in Africa?
South Africa used to have the biggest fashion industry in Africa, but now, I think it is moving to Nigeria. This is because Nigerians are really ‘punching’ hard, so to say.
What do Africa models have to offer that models in the Western world don’t have?
I would say it is our skins because we can be like them, but they can’t be like us. We are very courageous; Africans are very bold, but the white don’t like us for that.
How do you define beauty?
For me, I don’t see anybody as truly ugly; an ugly person can just come out looking good.
What do you think is sexy in a guy?
It is his strength and being hard-working. For me, if a man is handsome and is not hard-working, he is not sexy. For me to say a guy is sexy means the guy works hard and is very bold. I like brave men.
What do you think is the best thing that a woman can give a man?
Oh! I don’t understand. Do you mean in terms of love, relationship or what?
No, I mean things like gifts?
Oh! Honestly, I don’t know.
Are you in any relationship at the moment?
Sorry, that is my private life and I can’t talk about it.
Don’t tell me that a pretty girl like you doesn’t have a boyfriend.
I have not said that, but I don’t discuss my private life on the pages of newspapers or magazines.
What is the thing a guy must do on a date with you?
First of all, he must try to impress me and he should be well brought-up.
What advice do you have for other models?
They should be patient, faithful and hopeful that their time will come someday.
Who do you look up to in this industry?
People I look up to are Olubunmi Ademokoya and other top models in the world.
Who is your mentor?
What is your style?
I love being fashionable, so my style is anything fashionable
