New or recycled?
‘Recycled’ is the new ‘new’.
What’s your spirit animal?
A wolf.
Car or bike?
Traffic stresses me out, so I’ll say bike.
Are you into reading?
I love to read, but I’m a very lazy and slow reader.
What do you have for breakfast?
I’d go the English way. Tea and poached or scrambled eggs, fried or grilled tomatoes, fried mushrooms, fried bread or buttered toast and sausages.
Are you into thrift shopping?
I love thrift shopping, and I get a lot of art pieces this way.

What’s your favourite garment?
Has your personal style changed since you started modeling?
To be honest with you, I think my personal style has changed a lot since June 2018. In fact, I’ve learnt a whole lot about fashion, what to wear and how to look.
What’s that one thing you had to wear for a job and wished you could bring home?
I remember wearing this Givenchy leather jacket on my first editorial ever, I was actually praying the stylist would give me that to take home. It was an editorial for The Greatest Magazine, by the way (Smiles, E.D.).
Do you have any style-related advice on how to stand out from the crowd?
I think everyone is born unique, so once you start being yourself and avoid following everything you see others doing, you begin to stand out automatically!
What’s in your suitcase?
Always a leather jacket, T-shirts, denim pants, my toiletries, a pair of sneakers and either boots or shoes.

Any childhood nicknames?
How did you first get into modeling?
This photographer I wanted to do a random shoot with recommended me to an agency in Ghana. They ended up loving me and got me signed outside Ghana, that’s when everything changed for me.
If you weren’t a model, what would you be?
I would be a computer programmer.
Do you have any ‘secret talents’?
You haven’t heard me sing yet!
What’s your favourite song?
‘Nights’ by Frank Ocean.
