Spohie Alakija: A True Talent

It was a lovely easter break for me and i’m sure yours was too. Easter which was packed full of social events like GT Bank Food and Drink Festival(ongoing til 1st May), Arise fashion week that was packed full of talents, style, trends, fashion Icons, designers and the Iconic Jay #BSides2 performance at webster mall read more on bet.com @bet. What about the yearly comedy shows like AY Live. I went to AY Live, It was full of laughter, political statements, and lots of boob flashes on the stage during performance (I mean new and up coming stars(talents)).

While I was gloating on these fun festive break, i noticed this beautiful actress Sophie Alakija, who can rap(watch-out JayZ!). She is a Nigerian actress, model, a wife and a mom. Apparently she’s got her pocket full of many Talents. We have our eyes on you here at COVET. The beautiful actress is a up and coming nollywood actress who is taking strides in the entertainment industry. Many also know her as Wizkid(musician) ex-girlfriend who appeared as a lead dancer in his Holla At your boy video. Sophie is a daughter in-law to Africa;s richest woman Folorunsho Alakija. She has also featured in many movies including Getting over him produced by Uduak Isong and directed by Desmond Elliot, Skinny Girl In Transit The NDANITV Youtube channel that featured her as a major character as well.

What’s more interesting about this star is her rapping talent, which I  found titalizing when i listened to her on instagram @sophiealakija. Well Sophie this is a COVET shoutout to you, and we say Kudos!!
