Definition of fashion
Fashion is your person; it is your inner mind and all about you.
Position in the family
I am the second in a family of six children. My dad is a retired civil servant and my mum is businesswoman.
Style of dressing
Basically, I like being simple. It’s just jeans, a top and a fez-cap.
Most expensive item
Most cherished possession
Jesus Christ. I cherish him so much and nobody can take that away from me.
I love blue and brown. I love blue because of its distinctive effect.
On a good ground, I love eba and Ogbolo soup; but because of my weight I now go on light food. Instead of eba, I eat agidi with more fish and vegetable; and a whole lot of water.
Favourite piece of clothing
My jeans, I don’t mind wearing it to church.
Favourite body product
I love Mary Kay, Black Opal and Mac; these three are just perfect for me.
I love irresistible couture by Givenchy. I also love Dune by Christian Dior and Escada by Estilalda.
Givenchy, he’s good.
I love Joke Silva; I see her as a mother in all spheres of life, and as a force to reckon with. Internationally, I love Julia Roberts.
I love Lillian Bach. She has a fantastic dress sense.
What do you do at your leisure time?
If I’m not watching movies, then I’ll be sleeping because I love to sleep.
Describe yourself in a few words
I am like the girl next door, homely and Godly.
What would you not be caught wearing?
I can wear even baggy jeans, but can’t sag my trousers for any reason.
The presence of God. I draw my strength and my hope from God.
Misconception and false accusations, I can’t stand them.
The day I realised the power of God, and the efficacy of prayers in my life.
Most embarrassing moment
I can’t really remember any.
Philosophy of life
Life is what you make out of it.
If you were given a chance to change something in Nigeria, what would it be?
I will change the system of governance by removing the sycophants in power.
