Tell us about your career as a model.
I started modelling in 2012 with a crew. We basically ran the best runway modelling then in the University of Ibadan.
When did you first sign with an agency and what was that like?
I actually never signed under any agency. I was a natural and freelance model. Then I later got to own my own agency.
What is one of your favorite photographs from your career so far?
A fashion shoot recently for Crystal Fashion Empire
Who shot it?
What is your best model experience ever?
Walking the runways in UI. We always got people screaming every time we walked and took off our shirts. Lol. It was super entertaining
What are the main challenges in modeling today?
Basically lack of opportunities for upcoming models and the fact that models are usually overlooked easily. Most people (photographers, MUAs, designers etc) mostly want to use models for free plus models don’t even know their rights and understand what it means to be a model
What do you enjoy most of your profession?
The opportunity to meet beautiful people and work with different brilliant minds
How would you describe a model life?
A life constantly on the go with the responsibility to keep creating and recreating images of oneself without running out of looks
Do you think models are able to find long lasting friendships within the industry today?
It’s relatively hard to find long lasting friendships and relationships as a model but we try
What is your big model dream?
To run a big agency that caters for upcoming models and from them to supermodels who later go international
What is your favorite thing to do when not working?
I like to talk a lot with people. Share knowledge and also learn
Take us through a typical day in the life of Ola dare?
Well Ola Dare typically hardly sleeps over night so my day is always long. Once morning comes I start to create. Contents that would resonate well with people and also look for new ways to get business leads. Lol i work in Travels and Tours so I need to always get clients. And at the end of the day I get back home, relax and reflect while I plan for the next day
How do you keep your body in good shape?
I work out or let’s say used to cos I’ve been too busy of late. I love to stay in shape
What’s your favorite place in the world?
Weird but it’s the toilet. That’s where I can think and be away from the stress of the world
Give us 5 fun facts people might not know about you yet?
– I barely eat
– I am a soft hearted guy
– I pray a lot (speak in tongues)
– I whine my waist when no one is there while listening to slow songs
– I am a huge fan of love
What do you think Topnewstv.com.ng can do for the model community?
More publicity for models would go a long way. Post their Polaroids and bio. They could get new clients that way
Do you have any model friend you would like to see presented on Topnewstv.com.ng?
Yes I do. Her name is Mayorkun. She’s more of a mentee I’m working on growing her career. She’s exceptional
