Family and education background
I’m the first girl from my mum. I come from a polygamous family. I went to Temitope Nursery and Primary School; Shepherdhill Girls High School, and later studied Theatre Arts and Music from the Lagos State University.
Why did you venture into fashion/make-up?
Make-up is highly creative and demanding while fashion is the expression of your inner self; so I decided take to it for self expression.
What is “Fashion Fusion” all about?
It’s the third edition of my fashion show, which involves hair, make-up, fashion and music. It is the formal presentation of my fashion catalogue— Fashion Fusion. And I am thinking of having the biggest fashion show ever in Africa.
My inspiration comes from nature.
