My biggest dream as a Model is to be a role model, and to also have my own clothing line, with the aim to have great personalities wear my designs. Imagine asking Stephanie Okereke Linus what she is wearing? and she says ‘oh am wearing Alfreda Alfri’. Lol yes I already have a name for my Cloth line *winks*
Of all the Tops names why Stephanie Linus Okereke?
I knew you were going to ask that. question. Okay I’ll gladly say she so inspires me a lot and i see myself in her. Not because people say we have have striking resemblance but because I love her personality and I believe she is a living legend and one big figure I look up to every minute of my life.
