Read the interesting excerpts from interview with PUNCH:
On being a fashion inclined person
I would not say that I have always been fashion inclined hundred per cent. I just like to stand out and wear what I think is good on me and feel comfortable in it. I will not wear what is trending especially if it makes me uncomfortable. If I don’t like it, I will not wear it.
On following trends
On what she will never be caught wearing
I would never be caught wearing leggings with a short top. I hate that outfit even though a lot of people wear it. I think it is awful and that is one thing I know I would never be caught wearing.
On her preference for long dresses
Is there a reason for wearing short and revealing dresses? I know girls do it but that is not me. It does not depict my kind of person. I do not like to reveal my body because it is the temple of the Lord. Why should I reveal my body?
The trend now is bleaching, as a dark complexioned girl, have you ever considered that?
I have never at any point thought I should be fairer than the way God created me. I don’t think it is a good trend for people to follow. Who says you are not beautiful the way you were created? Who says you must be fair to be beautiful? It is not a good thing to bleach at all.
On her fashion fetish
I think it is perfumes because I love to smell good. I rather get a compliment about my smell than my shoes.
On the fashion item she cannot leave home without
To be honest, I don’t have. I wanted to say my eyeliner but I have left the house so many times without it. I am not a big fan of make-up. I can’t leave my house naked so I think it is going to be my clothes. I can’t leave home without my clothes.
Why don’t you like make up when that is the craze of the moment among ladies?
I apply make-up on my face only when it is absolutely necessary and that is because the make-up artistes always tell me that I need the make-up because of the lights and camera. Most times when they want to do my make-up, I ask them not to apply foundation but they say on television, they get all the angles so I need the foundation for the contours and highlights. If I had my way, I would just go out in a simple and plain way. I can do make up but a very light one. I don’t like make-up that makes you look completely different. I like something that compliments me. There are some people that heavy make-up does not work for. Every girl needs to know what suits their body, I know what suits mine and heavy make-up does not look good on me. People tell me especially my mother and sisters. I am not a big fan of make-up.
It seems you don’t have tattoos and extra piercings, is it intentional?
I only have the piercing I was given as a child. I don’t like extra piercing. I am okay with the one that I have. Tattoos are not just for me.
