Ghanaian model, Roselyn Ashkar and Africa 1 Media, are set for a one-day workshop for established models, budding models and people who want to venture into modeling on Saturday, September 2, 2017, at Carbon, in Accra. The workshop would center on bettering the skills of models in the country, thus, it’s inviting interested persons to attend and be equipped. “It promises to be refreshing and fun to see the beautiful faces who want to take their passion to an upgraded phase.” The organizer told African Entertainment.
Roselyn started off in the media industry in 2009 as one of the top-listed models for a renowned modeling agency in Ghana called EXOPA. Later in 2010, she made an appearance in the eighth edition of Miss Malaika Ghana as a contestant. She’s featured on international runway shows and working with famous designers such as Thula Sindi, David Thale, Marianne Fassler.
She is currently signed to one of the top agencies in Spain (MHOMS Agency), and to South Africa’s Outlaws model Agency and ICE Model Management. She’s featured in and covered countless magazine editorials and brands such as JET Stores, ABSA Bank, Image Makers Corporate Wear Brand, Netherlands’ Suit Supply, Spanish Lingerie Women’s Secret, World Swimsuit Magazine, Cruz Vodka, etc.
Over the weekend, The Voice Nigeria co host, Stephanie Coker married her millionaire beau, Olumide Adenirokun in Greece. The wedding from viral photos was exquisite with the bride looking angelic especially in her second wedding dress designed by top Nigerian designer, Andrea Iyamah.
A few days after their dream wedding, the excited new bride has decided to ink her new status on her body. Stephanie unveiled a new tattoo with the inscription “Mrs A” on her Instagram story a few hours ago. See photo:
A little flashback to 17 months ago when Yoruba land’s most powerful monarch, Ooni of Ife decided to take a wife shortly after ascending the throne. Rumors flooded the internet at the time that Olori Wuraola was not fit to wear the crown as she was famous for hopping from one wealthy marriage to another. Barely two years after, the celebrated marriage which was claimed to be god ordained has crashed and we hear it has everything to do with the Olori.
LIB is reporting that Olori Wuraola has moved to Lagos after the Ooni announced to her family last week that he would no longer continue his marriage to Wuraola on grounds of infidelity and lack of loyalty.
We also gathered that plans have already kicked off to unveil a new Olori who is from Yoruba land as opposed to Wuraola who is Benin.
These were his words “Yall told me ‘be careful of Wizkid that he is this that he is that’ yet I see yall kissing ass! Lol thank God I didnt listen to yall fakes…” Well we are thankful that Mr Eazi did not listen as we all know how influential Wizkid has been in his career especially with breaking into the Nigerian industry last year June.
Wondering who Mr Eazi is targeting with these set of tweets? Well we do have a guess but we wouldn’t want to throw stones so let’s best keep our fingers crossed!
We might have upon us another short lived celebrity relationship. Barely months ago, Nigerian music sensation, Tekno dropped hints that he was romantically involved with Davido Worldwide Music (DMV) first lady, Lola Rae so much that when he was recently ill and had to move to the States for better health care, the couple shared (through Instagram) that they were spending time together.
Well it appears that Tekno’s cassava was too much of a burden as the couple have gone their separate ways. How we know? The pair are no longer following each other on Instagram and word is, Lola Rae has been keeping to herself especially since Tekno returned home.
Hopefully, they have only just decided to take their love off social media and all is good with the couple. They look so adorable together.
“The alarming rate at which the interest, desperation and enthusiasm for modeling among today’s youth is shocking. In today’s world (21st Century) technology has taken over hence the use of social media by most people and especially over 50% of the youth. The social media compulsion has caused a lot of the youth to become desperate and unhesitant to involve themselves in certain activities or professions to fit into the social media class. It is worth mentioning that Modeling has become one of the major or topmost careers that almost every young girl or guy wants to venture into. The precise words from the lips of most people nowadays are, “Every girl says she is a model”.
We then ask ourselves; is it just about the fame, money, pride, attention, luxury life etc., that comes with being a model or it’s the passion, focus, determination, zeal and quest to inspire people that drives them into the modeling field. The spring up of models without focus and a proper understanding of modeling in today’s world has made models/professional models in general and the Modeling Industry seem like a joke and insignificant. The respect and acknowledgement of models and the Modeling Industry should I say has almost faded or faded away.
This state of despair among the youth to become models is quite appalling. In the sense that, most of these young girls do not mind sleeping with men who promise to give them exposure and make them top models. Is this not an obvious and hungry desire for fame? The way some girls dress indecently and carry themselves about calling themselves models is also very distressing. There are some who call themselves models but take way unprofessional photos or don’t know how to portray professionalism in their photos.
You come across their photos and get stunned to know they are actually models. Some just don’t meet the physical requirements and other requirements to be models but their crazy thirst for modeling would make them take up any task or cross any bridge to be models. All these have caused or created a negative perception about models in general and modeling as a career. It is disheartening to know that people no longer see modeling as a career or profession.
To be a model doesn’t only mean having a pretty face and posing in front of a camera smiling. It takes more than what the eye meets or sees. There is more of passion, guts to play different roles, zeal, focus, composure and determination. To make the choice of becoming a model make sure you possess these qualities and decide wisely. Let’s all make the Modeling industry a better one.”
