Whats your favourite colour?
Coffee brown. That was the colour I used in my wedding but now I like brighter colours. I like yellow, red, and purple.
What’s your favourites food?
I like Ikokore, my local dish. I’m from Ijebu. You can call me a typical Ijebu woman.
Where is your favourite holiday spot?
I call myself a tourist; I like traveling internationally. I travel a lot. I have been to Canada, Britain, Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Saudi Arabia. But for the past three years I have been touring Nigeria. I have been to Maiduguri, Jos, Port Harcourt, Warri, Ondo and Ile-Ife. If I travel I don’t sit in a place, I like moving about.
And your favourite weather?
I like winter. In Nigeria we have rainy season and dry season. We have longer period for the dry season, so I want to go to a place where I will feel different weather. Usually, I travel during summer but my husband doesn’t like summer so I have changed to winter.
Do you have a favourite car?
I like Honda and Toyota cars.
Any literature book. I like reading. As a town planner, I like reading professional books.
Who is your favourite leader?
The only leader I have is my husband. He is my mentor, he is my everything. He is the only one apart from God that I look up to because he’s a complete and perfect gentleman. His name is Alhaji Abdulkarim Yusuf
What about your fashion accessories?
I love jewellery. I like bags, shoes.
I’m addicted to Wasiu Ayinde, Kwam-1 but the addiction is fading away. These days I like cool music. I like inspirational music, I like gospel music.
