20

6’3″

Place of Origin:

Ghanaian

Birthsign:
Aries

How discovered:
The very first time I was discovered I was up walking around central London trying to find a shirt for work and a scout that said they were from Ford NYC asked if I was a model and if I was interested in modelling. I didn’t know much about the industry so I was like no and wasn’t so keen. So I went home and told my mum and she was like, “it’s probably a scam and they will get you to pay for a £340 shoot and say they will make you a model like what they done to your sister” – lol . So then I didn’t bother to get back in contact with them. A few months later I went to a party and a girl approached me by the name of Beverly Abronama and was like “are you a model?” I was like no she was like you should consider it because you have a lot of potential and gave me a list of agencies I should go into. Models 1 was at the top of the list. I went in, they liked me, got signed, and the rest is history – lol.

Favorite things:
My Beats by Dre headphones, my phone, and laptop.

Favorite music, band:
2Pac, Joey Badass, J Cole, Biggie Smalls, Kendrick Lamar, Erykah Badu, Lauryn Hill, Bob Marley, Janelle Monae

Favorite movie, tv show:
Set It off; Takers; Taken; Class Act; Boyz in da Hood; House Party 1, 2 & 3; Menace II Society; Juice.

Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
Favorite designer at the moment is Alexander Wang. The shapes and cuts of their garments are sooo creative and sickk! / Paco Rabanne/ Dettol soap and cocoa butter.

What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
If I weren’t modelling I would be a full time student at University, which I am right now, lol. I attend Kent University and study Electronic Engineering and Communications.

What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
Eating fast/fatty foods

Favorite modeling experience so far?
Doing the One Direction music video on a field far away somewhere and swimming, running and laughing on set – it was a sick day.

What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
In London the underground tube system which goes throughout London. And in Ghana there is a cloth called “Kente” which is apart of the culture and the fabric is woven with just simple wood and string. The designs which are created from it are amazing, it’s so beautiful… Google “Kente Cloth” and you will be sooo amazed that something so beautiful is made from such simple tools (a piece of wood and string)

Which brand would you really love to model for?
Definitely Alexander Wang, no doubt!

Place you would love to visit:
Bora Bora – it looks like heaven on earth on tv and in pictures.

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
Copella apple juice, red velvet cake, and lately Rihanna.

    Og thank God finally….in a country with no modelling agencies, designer shops and brands and no fahion week, our country Ghana is proud of Jamie..heard about him from a local showbiz show and we all support him all the day…he’s got a chance that most of us down here will never realize so at least it’s a good thing
