Now the best gift you can ever have or get in life, is giving your life to Christ. Congrats Jumai we are so happy for you. Plus I shall bring you one of her videos when I return from church… s*xy preacher hehehe. Please continue below…

Q: How would you describe your sense of style?
A .My style is mature; sexy and fun. I love bright colours like yellow. I love accessories and most time when I dress, I style more around accessories. The good thing about being in the entertainment and fashion industry is that people give us many things. That doesn’t mean that I don’t spend my money. Truth is, I am a muse to a lot of designers like Toju Foyeh, Lanre Da Silva and Agbani Darego. I get things from people as I help them. I don’t really wear gold but I wear a lot of costume jewellery. They don’t cost that much, if something looks nice and is expensive, I won’t buy it. As much as I love fashion, I am very careful with my money. I won’t make myself broke because of fashion.
Q: What is the most expensive dress in your wardrobe?
A: It’s a Toju Foyeh dress made for the Genevieve Pink Ball and she made the pink dress with crystal. This must have cost her a lot of money. I have a Diane-Von-Furstenberg dress which I bought for 150 pounds because it was on sale. I shop everywhere— Primark, Obalende, Selfridges—but I love accessories.
Q: What outfits do you not love wearing?
A: I can’t be caught dead wearing bum shorts and I don’t like colour blocking.
Q: Any style icons?
A: I love the Kadarshian sisters’ fashion and style sense, especially Kim’s. Forget all the drama around her body; since she got on with Kanye, she has truly stepped out in beautiful numbers. They both dress very well. They wear a lot of neutral and earth colours, which I totally love and admire.
Q: You shocked many with your recent conversion to Christianity, how did this happen?
A: It is something I have been thinking of for a long time. I come from a family of Muslims; my father and siblings are Muslims while my mother is a Christian. To come from a predominantly Muslim background and then become a Christian has to be your calling especially if you are into entertainment. It was my calling. I had to not just be a Christian, but to also live as a Christian. I am very compelled to spread the gospel and that is what I do on my Sunday Vlog series.
Q: Do you believe in love and marriage?
A: I can’t be a born-again Christian and not believe in marriage because it helps. I like the whole idea of a man and a woman coming together to help each other. My idea of an ideal marriage is one where respect and love thrive.
