Mary Attah Azuzu’s Ambitious modelling plans
Skepticism is not in this lady’s playbook. When it comes to her aspirations, she’s operating from an extraterrestrial realm. Her ambitious modeling plans are nothing short of extraordinary. Standing 5feet 11inches, with waist 24, bust 32, and hips 35, although a newbie in the industry, Mary Attah Azuzu is ready to move mountains and pull down walls until she becomes one of the most revered models from Nigeria. I had a conversation with her recently.
‘I’m a year one student of Ambrose Ali University, Ekpoma studying Physical and Health education. I’m From Dekina Local Government Area Kogi state. I’m known more as Kira Attah. As an admirer of models on magazines covers and billboards, my desire to become a model started from my high school days. Professionally, my career began in 2017. I worked with House Of Khyla and in October 2017 I got scouted and signed by Gemian Model Management through the academy. Three days after being scouted I was selected as one of the finalists for Nigeria’s Next Super Model 2017 where I came out 4th. This was a major for me. On February 2018, I walked For Evol Fashion after being on the campaign ad for the show.
This Year I’ve worked with brands like Emmanuel King, Bereal Photography, Brushnblush, Humphrey Ominisan and Jonochi. This year I plan on coming out full time. I’d really love to walk for Africa Fashion Week, GT fashion Weekend, Lagos Fashion Week, Lagos Urban Fashion Show, and work with brands like The FIA Factory, Julia McDonald, Andrea Iyamah and Orange Culture.
Next year, I’m definitely positive I’d work for Arise Fashion Week,
Lagos Leather Fair, Fashion Finest, London Fashion Week, Victoria Secrets
and Milan Fashion Week. Oh yes, I’m going to work hard enough. My role model is my elder sister Phina Attah-Azuzu. She’s a strong lady and very supportive of everything that concerns me. She’s hardworking and a lady of high ambition. She believes if you love anything enough then go for it and make every minute count and that has been how I approach everything.
