LAGOS – Aspiring model from Nigeria speaks about her passion for modelling to Star Africa
‘Education, family background and age should never be a barrier to your success’
With her curvaceous postures and photoshoots, Sadiq Abidemi Simbiat, the young and embryonic fashion model from Nigeria has set the ramps on fire. The commercial model of 23 years revealed to Star Africa about her passion and zeal for fashion that is gradually fetching her to the limelight
Sadiq Abidemi was born in Kogi State, Nigeria in 1996. First, among the four siblings, Simbiat got her primary and secondary schooling from Ibadan, Nigeria. Later she graduated from Ibadan Polytechnic with a degree in mass communication.
Being the first child, duties and responsibilities always saddled her but this didn’t restrain Simbiat from chasing her dreams. She started her modelling career in 2016, and gradually discovered her potency and appeal in the same.
Simbiat revealed that she chose to model just because she enjoys being in front of the lens. ‘I love being in front of the camera. I know I have many loopholes over which I have been jumping continuously. But still, I enjoy being in front of the lens,’ she explains.
Apart from the Nigerian actress, Beverly Osu, Canadian fashion model Winnie Harlow and English actress-model Naomi Campbell are the main inspirations for Simbiat. She is rigorously working hard to embellish her love and passion for modelling. ‘I’ve had a series of mini-events that has made me hopeful but I’m still hoping for a major event that would lead to a better future in the modelling world. My prime motive is to go global and be a force to reckon with in fashion and modelling world at large,’ she added.
‘Though I hardly make any mistakes in front of the camera, the biggest challenges one face there is about their poses and strokes. Growing from an amateur model to a professional one is all about bringing a game change to your poses. Moreover, it’s different for different photographers; they bring and build different dimensions of you,’ she reckoned.
Kelechi Amadi-Obi, TY Bello, Momodu Media and Big H Studios are some of the big names with which Simbiat aspires to work. Although, she always dreamt to be a fashion model if otherwise, she would surely have been a television host or an event planner. ‘Still, it would be entertainment world just that I’d either have been an event planner or a TV Host or presenter but I still see myself doing either of the two in the nearest future,’ she dishes.
With an aim to set a global trend and pace, Simbiat focus on courage and consistency as the main driving force towards the goal. ‘As they say, Rome wasn’t built in a day, it takes time, courage, and consistency to achieve a dream. Education, family background, age and many other factors aren’t and should never be a barrier to success,’ she concluded.
