Q: So Dera Grey, why have you chosen the modelling career and how long have you been a model?
A: I wouldn’t particularly say I chose it. it just worked out for me and I’ve been a model for 2 years now.
Q: Are you under any modelling agency?
A: Not at the moment .. I’m freelance.
Q: Tell us a story about your best modelling job?
A: It would be when I had to model for a hair company. The pay was marvelous.. the other models really friendly… and the treatment from the employees was absolutely lovely.
Q: One pretty interesting thing about you is the fact that you’re a model and also a fashion designer.. THAT’S A “WOW” FACTOR RIGHT THERE.. we’ve seen most of your designs, “OUTSTANDING”!!, what is it like being both a Model and a fashion designer?
A: Being able to make my own clothes is actually very helpful cause I know exactly how my clothes should fit and that’s one expense I don’t have to worry about.

Q: What are the requirements for earning the “model” title?
A: I don’t really think it’s something that is particularly earned .. Everybody is a model at this point in time. The main question is are you making money off it.
Q: As a Nigerian model, what do you think is your greatest weakness and how do intend improving?
A: it would be the fact that if I don’t like the makeup the makeup artist applies on my face .. I simply will not be in my element because I don’t feel beautiful how am I supposed to act like I am. But then again I have to realize that no matter what is on my face I have to deliver.. I have to block out my insecurities and do what I was paid to.
That was a wonderful moment right there.. I can’t seem to get “the pay was marvelous” out of my head😂. It’s a good thing to know that the Nigerian modelling industry does well when it comes to paying models for a job well done.
