"I believe modeling education is really important because I had to learn most of the things I know from YouTube."

Model Citizen Media provides a platform to recognise fashion models, photographers, designers, makeup artists, hair stylists, creative directors, bloggers, stylists, and labels around the world. Every day, we feature an individual on Model Citizen Interviews. People get to know each of them - their hopes, challenges, aspirations and inspirations in life.

Tell us about yourself: Why do you want to work as a model? Why are you interested in modelling as a career?

I have my Bsc in marketing but left my certificate to face modeling as a career instead because being in front of a camera makes me happy and it pays to do what makes you happy.

How important is modelling education: Have you attended modelling courses? What related courses or studies have you taken?

I haven't attended any modeling courses yet but I believe modeling education is really important because I had to learn most of the things I know from YouTube.

What do you think makes someone “fit” to be a model?

Looks...height but most importantly Attitude.

What are your goals as a model? How do you see yourself progressing in this field?

My goals as a model is to be known in the world and prove many Nigerians who think models are prostitute wrong. You can be very modest and successful as a model.


What do you know about advertising psychology and photography?

I am a marketer so I know a lot about the advertisement industry and right now I believe they need to change the psychology of doing what everyone is doing and be more creative.. creativity is the new deal.

How do you communicate with people? Are you patient? Are you friendly? How open are you to clients’ requirements?

As a marketer patience and friendly is the watchword. You cant be successful without those two keywords at the back of your head. I'm open to clients requirement and if its beyond my power I find some other means to fix their problem.

Do you eat nutritiously? How often do you exercise or go to the gym?

Yes I eat nutritiously and I go to the gym just during the weekends.

What is your dream role as a model?

Actually very simple to be endorsed by a very big company.

Do you have any limitations? How do you define your boundaries when choosing to accept a modelling request?

Yes I have limitations.. I'm still skeptical about shooting nude with lot of people in the room.

State your availability: Would you travel? Work full-time, part time? Any hours?

Yes I am available for travel.
