Fast-rising Nigerian model with tribal marks, Adetutu Alabi has stripped naked in new photos shared on her Facebook story on Thursday evening.
The mother-of-one rose to limelight in 2018 after she started a campaign to get Fenty Boss, Rihanna to sign her up as a model.
The model eventually got followed by Rihanna. She disclosed that her tribal marks, a proud Yoruba mark of beauty, was a stumbling block to her pursuing a university education.
“I started modelling last year after I came out from my shell or hiding due to my tribal marks. The bullying started in my primary and secondary school days. Due to this, I learnt a skill instead of going to university.
“I was supposed to study law but I decided not to take the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination at all because I was scared of being bullied in the university. I believed that if I attended university, I might end up killing myself.
“Later, I had to ask my parents why they gave me these tribal marks and they told me it was because of our culture and to showcase my beauty.
“I didn’t feature in any of my primary school pictures because of my tribal marks and even though I had friends, I was always like a fifth wheel in the group. An embarrassing day for me was when a client told me to always conceal my tribal marks anytime I came to work with her. She eventually told me that she couldn’t work with me.”
