DOLLHOUSE E!: Can you tell us what Links & Model magazine all about?
LINKS & MODEL MAGAZINE: Links & Model Magazine is a publication of Glo-May Specialities;an event management firm. Links & Models Magazine is bore out of and tailored alongside our goal of creating solely a ready platform for aspiring models, designers and entrepreneurs to get discovered, showcased and promoted.
DOLLHOUSE E!: Yes,Okay,we also heard you doing a fashion show this April how true is that ma’am?
LINKS & MODEL MAGAZINE: Very True, Our first outing was last year december tagged; Face of Links & models/designers 2012 held at the swimming pool garden, Ajao Estate. This April we are taking it further with our fashion show theme; Links Fashion Show, Alimosho Edition; Unveiling and Celebrating Naija Designs.
DOLLHOUSE E!: So how is it going, the fashion show you are hosting & how is the turn up so far?
LINKS & MODEL MAGAZINE: Well, I must confess, God has been faithful!! Have found favour with God and kings in my endeavour. The response has been great with designers,models,artists and media homes calling to participate but na d Action we dey wait for!…….hahahahahahahahahahaha
DOLLHOUSE E!: I see, Apart from this fashion show,what other events have you done?
LINKS & MODEL MAGAZINE: Our first event was Face of Links & Models/Designers 2012, Cream your dreams Seminar for models,designers and artists and Time Out with models and designers at Elegushi Beach
DOLLHOUSE E!: Usually when you do events like this do you have supporters & sponsors?if yes can you name a few?
LINKS & MODEL MAGAZINE: Hmmmmm….Talking about sponsorship in Nigeria, most companies prefers to sponsor big events or a known celeb event,so getting sponsors has been very challenging but God who has given me the victory and strength to scale through without sponsors, God is my SPONSOR!! My last experience has taught not to trust in men’s promises but in God, because we got promises from two Multinationals of which I don’t want to mention names,as I speak the event has come and gone,we are still expecting their sponsorship package,so sad!!! As for supporters,I have quite a number of them namely;Damilar Couture, Rene Couture, Paran Concepts, Daily Independent, naijawhistle.com, Macdon Entertainment,FM Macson Entertainment (UK),Loggtv,to mention but a few
DOLLHOUSE E!: Are you married?
LINKS & MODEL MAGAZINE: Hahahahaha…..not yet but very very soon
DOLLHOUSE E!: *Smiles* Do you face any challenges or difficulties as the Ceo of Links & model magazine?
LINKS & MODEL MAGAZINE: Yes oh!!! Infact without challenges,there are no growth,increase nor progress.
Challenges are everyday occurrences for me starting from managing the models,grooming and scouting for jobs,sponsorship parole,event planning/ hosting and lots more but they made me stronger and better.
DOLLHOUSE E!: Do you have any model registered under you?
LINKS & MODEL MAGAZINE: Yes I do…quite a number of them
DOLLHOUSE E!: How do you help them grow since the Nigeria entertainment world is very hard & unfair to upcoming talent?
LINKS & MODEL MAGAZINE: Hmmmm……on that regards,I take my time and effort in training and grooming my models to be professionals in their fields,I organise a lot of training sessions for them because knowledge is power. I also showcase them on media platforms available to me such as saturday independent, The Sun, Hip pop Magazine, my facebook page,my website,blogs etc. Also, I basically organise events such as my forthcoming event to showcase my trained models on the run way. So far,God has been faithful as my models having been getting jobs even in our competitive market but we are aiming for the big brands and very soon that will become a reality.
DOLLHOUSE E!: Have you won any Award?
LINKS & MODEL MAGAZINE: Hahahahahaha…….none yet oh!! We just started this business last year April to be precise. So am believing God very soon my efforts and impact will be noticed and recognised.
DOLLHOUSE E!: If you have a chance to meet anybody in the world today who would that person be?
LINKS & MODEL MAGAZINE: Kimora and Omosexy of Nigeria
DOLLHOUSE E!: Tell us your most Embarrassing moment if you wish to share with us
LINKS & MODEL MAGAZINE: Heheheehee…….hmmmm!! Last year,at an event,dressed graciously and happy with myself as people were stirring at me but unknown to me, my dress was torn at the back until a gentleman approached and gave me his jacket!! That was so embarrassing as I couldn’t stay at the event anymore.
DOLLHOUSE E!: What message have you got for upcoming musicians,models,dancers & viewers out there watching you right now?
LINKS & MODEL MAGAZINE: Believe in YOU!! Be focused and determined,don’t be in an hurry to hit the billions,know that Success is a journey and a state of mind. And be passionate about your dreams and goals because your passion will persuade others to join and support your dreams. Don’t wait for money to pursue your dreams,just start and every thing you need will start locating you in the journey of your success story. Above all, NA GOD!!
