Read excerpts from the interview below:
On how her life as a “politician’s wife” affects her style
My husband is at the moment campaigning to be a member of the House of Representatives in Abeokuta. So, I’m a politician’s wife, which is quite cool, because I love giving a different look on what it is to do something, and I feel that in Nigeria, where we have so many elderly politicians, their wives are usually required to look and dress a certain way. You shouldn’t lose your personality once your other half is put in a position of power.
I am so glad that my husband is still the same man he was before we got married. He is still him and has not tried to become something else, which I feel is important. So, I’m going to be killing it in fashion, as a politician’s wife.
On her favourite Nigerian fashion brands
Well, I have a couple. You can find me rocking Style Temple when it comes to asoebi and some red carpet events, I also love Lisa Folawiyo. But I do love androgynous vibes, so I’m really feeling Tokyo James at the moment- I know- who is he right? LOL.
On finding the balance between her public and private life
I believe that everyone has two sides – especially when you’re in the spotlight. So there is the brand that must always be prim and proper, but at home with friends and family, believe me – I am no celebrity.
On future projects
Whoa! What do I have coming up? I am working on my own projects in terms of television, because obviously, TV is my first love- sorry babe. I love hosting, and I’m really just working on content that is extremely experimental. I working on something in the love space coming soon, and I’m also working on something to do with fashion. I’m not gonna tell you any more. LOL.
