Dark-skinned model speaks on challenges
It is common knowledge that beauty comes in every shape and colour and for Jennifer Ehizojie, embracing her dark skin was the only way to rise above the bullying.
The Taxation student of the University of Benin is one young lady who is black and not afraid to show it off.
In a recent interview with Legit.ng, the ebony beauty who stands tall at 5'7ft, talked about her passion for modelling and the motivation behind her decision.
Ehizojie, who has been a model since 2019, revealed she decided on the career path in 2017 due to how often she got bullied for her dark skin in school.
Agbada at the Emmys
It is no news that Nigerian media personality, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu is an icon when it comes to all things fashion in the country.
More often than not, he causes a buzz on social media with every outfit he rocks. One of his iconic and still-talked-about looks is the Ugo Monye-designed agbada he rocked to singer Banky W's wedding in 2017.
It has been over three years and fashion enthusiasts are still recreating the look with some failing terribly at it. Well, this is certainly not the case with OT Fagbenle.
The British/Nigerian actor was among those who attended the highly-coveted Emmy Awards night and he turned up in an outfit that was a nod to his Nigerian heritage.
