4. What’s life like being a boss in fashion.

It is still work in progressing. I just want to give something back to the African community.

It is not easy as I need to get back home in time for days I promised to spend time with them, But they are a blessing and a delight. So it makes every thing worth it.

If I start a movie or tv series, can’t stop.

To be the first choice for online African fashion shopping all over the world. We are still enrolling designers and speeding time promoting the website.

My mother. I do not tell her when I am stressed or down as it will make her worst than me and I will need to help her get better instead of focusing on me. Haha.

12 What would you do differently as a model

We need to find a way to get models doing less unpaid works. Or even more pay.

Prejuduce is everywhere. I don’t pay attention to it. I focus on positive things and my goals.
