Give us some details about you and your story? How did you get to where you are today?
“I grew up in the rustic city of Ibadan, Oyo State, Nigeria. Well, I didn’t plan to go into modeling and influencer marketing. However, when I was little I liked to take pictures and dreamed of modeling for brands. I would post my random ‘pretty-girl’ photos on social media for fun. I noticed that people started to fall in love with my content and personality. That was how I transitioned into modeling and brand influencer marketing.”
I’m sure your success has not come easily. What challenges have you had to overcome along the way?
“Being in the public eye comes with a lot of backlash, bullying and negative comments. Sometimes people make false rumours just to bring me down but I always remain consistent in achieving my goals. I only focus on the positive reviews and constructive criticisms to constantly make improvement.”
Let’s talk about the work you do. What do you specialize in and why should someone work with you over the competition?
“I specialise in social media brand influencing and modelling. I have worked so hard to build my brand as a reputable personality which has attracted big brands like Techno Mobile Nigeria. My contents are unique and I have gotten multiple positive reviews from many brand I have worked with.”
What’s your best piece of advice for readers who desire to find success in their life?
“My advice to be tenacious in building your brand even when people do not give you a chance to achieve your ambitions. Everyone’s dream is valid if you remain consistent. I would also advise people to have a role model of mine they can look up to for guidance for support because the journey to success is not an easy one. For me my role model is my mother. What endears her to me is that she’s so hardworking , strong, and supportive.”
Speaking of success, what does the word mean to you?
“Success to me is doing what you love and being authentic whilst you do it. I believe you are successful when you have found that purpose and commit your life to it.”
What’s next for you?
I want to work with fashion brands like Fashionova, Prettylittlething, Boohoo etc because they sell unique quality outfits which has attracted many customers globally.
Finally, how can people connect with you if they want to learn more?
