Dark skinned Kemi's story is quite inspirational because she was not born with a silver spoon. She was one of those child who never got what she wanted or desired from her parents and that means she must be contented with the little option provided by her parents...Above all, Kemi never blamed her parents, rather, she felt the need and determination to be successful in life each time she sees some rich kids all dressed up in church on Sundays...
Kemi Tunrayo Amusan has had various fun moments in her career as a Model which took off in 2012 but the experience at Idanre Hills in Ondo State is one that stays glued to her heart forever, She had an editorial feature on Mania Magazine and she described it as fun, adventurous and awesome. She has worked with the likes of Adebayo Jones(UK), Maki Oh, Weizdhurm Franklin, Bridget Awosika, Grey, Ejiro Amos Tafiri and Lisa Folawiyo at the Lagos Fashion Week amongst others...and with just a 3 year career, Kemi has proved her worth by emerging first runner up at the Best Model Nigeria 2014 and Pearl Look 2015 and a nominee at the West Africa Fashion Award..All these have generated media buzz for her as she got an exclusive interview on NTA after the Best Model Nigeria competition.
Its a common knowledge in Nigeria that models are not treated well and so Kemi expressed her dissatisfaction about what they earn in the industry especially for those who have not made a name yet..''Sometimes you stay in the sun for long hours at Castings and that is discouraging'' she says.
Kemi intends to open a beauty house that will feature a salon, make up studio, manicure, pedicure and all other things that can enhance the beauty of a woman but I was quick to ask how she manages to relax amidst the busy schedules in the life of a model...and just like I guessed, she sees movies, swims, regular exercise to stay healthy along with fruits.
An inspiring and motivational part of my interview with her was when she said..''I do not have to accept what life gives me without having a choice, So I can take care of my younger ones and be able to give my children whatever they want as a mother''...It is inspiring for me because It proves and shows a determined woman who is ready to confront all obstacles to make the best use of her life.
