Brainbanxs: 😀 i know right i just cant help it…but its a nice name
Brainbanxs: from abia state right? Tell us about the place
Nma: well its always home, the people are friendly, nice, industrous and welcoming. The food there is amazing, the culture there is just so alive, the environment and weather are not as harsh as you expect it but its ok
Brainbanxs: hmmmm…sounds like an inviting place…*places palm under jaw*
Nma: actually it is, you should come visit you’ll love it…;-)
Brainbanxs: am actually thinking of that and you readers should consider it too…:-D
Nma: you’re all welcome to visit
Brainbanxs: so nma tell us about you and the modellin work that you do…what lead to that spark or calling?
Nma: well for me its just something i have always wanted to do, it brings this personal happiness for me seeing what i look like in front of a camera and lights.
Brainbanxs: personal desire…i like that…so you must have had alot of practice runs while growing up?
Nma: *chuckles* yes definitely..while growing up as a kid i loved taking pictures, i loved seeing what i looked like and i enjoyed it..
Brainbanxs: that’s cute, for me it was different i was the kid you’d always beg to sit still for a photo or beg not to do funny faces to mess it up..you could say that i was shy..lol
Nma: dont get me wrong i was shy too but i had to take the picture serious in order to appear beautiful…:-$
Brainbanxs: lol…that’s creative…nice work
Brainbanx: tell us a little about your educational level, i hear you’re a graduate of philosophy?
Nma: yes i am, a graduate from Nnamdi Azikwe University.
Brainbanxs: wow! Congrats…but i did’nt hear of any party, did you throw one?
Nma: yes i did but i forgot to send you the invitation *covers face*
Brainbanxs: you must throw another..:-|
Nma: ok Captain..lol
Brainbanxs: so you should be serving now right?
Nma: yes, serving in lagos and believe me its so not easy…but its actually an awesome experience..lol
Brainbanxs: well dont forget to send the tenth part of your allawi this way…*chuckles*
Nma: no problem at all…lol
Brainbanxs: so was it hard being a model and being a student at the same time?
Nma: actually it was at some point because, school on its own is alot of work and having to do photo shoots as a model was demanding.
Brainbanxs: well you seem to have over come the first part well tho…did you have some sort of suppot at the time?
Nma: uhun! For starters i had to seek for direction from the Almighty, then my family, relatives and close friends. The main key was staying focused and keeping everything in its proper place. It was hard but it was definitely worth it.
Brainbanxs: so what kind of modelling are you into, is it runway, billboard or underwear modelling?
Nma: actually cover pages of magazines for now..
Brainbanxs: i hope to wakeup one morning and see your face on the cover of my daily magazine supply…lol
Nma: am already planning right that. 😉
Brainbanxs: ok i hear that most models have phobias for some its the fear of the crowd not accepting them for some its the fear of their career ending right before it starts…what’s yours?
Nma: hmmm…*stays silent for some seconds* i will say fear of the unknown..
Brainbanxs: fear of the unknown? Sounds spiritual and spooky tho…
Nma: lol…its not spiritual its just i fear the things i dont know, like a bad event that comes out of a surprise.
Brainbanxs: tell us a little about some of the major challenges you might have faced?
Nma: i’ll say annoying people, sometimes the people i worked with would just make it so hard and difficult at being yourself. Well God has been faithful, he has seen me through some of the roughest times by using my friends and family.
Brainbanxs: Halleujah! *coughs*..have you done any jobs for a makeup home? Because am baffled at who does your makeup, its beautiful..
Nma: no i have’nt actually but it wont be a bad idea..i do my makeups myself, because i believe in knowing what i want when it comes to mixing colurs that match my skin tone.
Brainbanxs: how come, i thought it was difficult doing that on your own professionally?
Nma: no its not, i sort of picked a leaf or two from Mazal’s Place which is the firm in asaba where i worked for so during my time there i had to learn a thing or two for myself…;-)
Brainbanxs: ok so how where the jobs at mazal? Whats that kick that got you focused?
Nma: it was flexible in the sense that i chose my own outfit, colours of my makeup and i had several hours of shooting so setting my mind in moods to fit a particular shot had to come from the inside
Brainbanxs: please elaborate…
Nma: ok pictures dont really talk but by seeing a particular shot you can tell wat was going on while it was being taken e.g a sad look, an alluring stare, a serious look or a happy smile. All these had to come from the inside, several shots, days of practice.
Brainbanxs: so your jobs at Mazal Place where like small scale jobs?
Nma: no not small scale, i like to think that every job is an opportunity for something big so take every job serious because that keeps me prepped for the next one. I did two jobs with them tho
Brainbanxs: *clapping* motivating answer, i like that spirit tho unlike some of we humans that always want the big stuff coming in *cughs*
Nma: yea most people have no idea the impact the so -called little jobs can make.
Brainbanxs: so do you have any female icon or role model that you look up to as an inspiration..
Nma: well no one per say, am my own inspiration because looking up to someone or trying to be like them wont let me discover myself but keep me within the limits of the person like an extension or shadow.
Brainbanxs: oook that sounds em cool…so you dont have any icons at all?:s
Nma: yea it is and no i dont, i am my own motivation…lol
Brainbanxs: do you feel up to the competition of slim models being en vogue these days?
Nma: hmm! No..because am sort of the plus side a little and thats a challenge…*blushing*
Brainbanxs: awww….that must be really depressing..?
Nma: yea i guess *nodding*
Brainbanxs: so do you have plans of quitting or joining the slim trail or you want to be yourself and still make you impact?
Nma: i wont mind loosing some weight but i am ok the way i am 🙂
Brainbanxs: good one..so thats more time at the gym right? Forcing that fitness right in..
Nma: for now nothing i’ll just chill 😀
Brainbanxs: lol…seems like you want the weight to add up…like for me i run about 300-500 situps and about 150 pushups everyday, i can sign u up for training..
Nma: *jaw drops* no am good, i’ll pass, thanks..lol
Brainbanxs: do you have a pet?
Nma: no i dont but i do like dogs, thinking of getting one
Brainbanxs: thats neat, so what breed do you want to get?
Nma: erm…an alsatian, they are good guard dogs, have a nice physique and a good company too..:-)
Brainbanxs: how about partying? I know you should be a dancer *winks*
Nma: yea i love to party, mature actually. I just get loose to the music on the dance flow but i never go crazy or do anything stupid.
Brainbanxs: thats good thinking, am glad you have’nt bashed anyones head tho..lol
Nma: not at all i have never gotten violent or wasted at a party before, maybe arguments but not violent outburst.
Brainbanxs: ok ltes hope no police records will pop out in future,lol
Nma: not at all dear..lol
Btainbanxs: if you’re given the opportunity or called to do lets say a bikini shoot, will you see yourself as fit? And will you say yes?
Nma: definitely i’ll say yes, wont be that bad..;-)
Brainbanxs: ok am wishing you goodluck with that..
Brainbanxs: what are your plans for the next five years or wherendo you see yourself in the next five years?
Nma: thats a tough one you might have to ask God about that…:-D just kidding.. Well in the next five years i’ll want to be ahead of where i am now, let my face and name pop out on the pages of magazines and possibly billboards..
Brainbanxs: ok dear i wish you the very best with that, thankyou somuch for your time, hope to have you here again..
Nma: thankyou so much trigg, i had a good time…:-)

No doubt his name is not new to most of us, some call him the hard kid on the block, others call him the next big thing with a mic, others call him promising…while for some….he’s that tough bone to break.
Here’s the all exclusive interview with the figure behind the name.*drum rolls*
Brainbanxs: Basic information about yourself?
Efkae: Joshua babatunde famko a.k.a ef’kae…I’m a poet, a rap artist and a composer
Brainbanxs: What do you do for a living aside being a lyricist?
Efkae: well just gaduated from the university maiduguri (UNIMAID), studied biochemistry.
Brainbanxs: what major languages do you speak asides english?
EfKae: well I speak yoruba, hausa, a little bit of igbo and your occasional pickup lines from movies.
Brainbanxs: a movie lover, nice! One classic movie from your favourites?
Efkae: ermmm….that would be the Matrix, Keanu Reeves had a hard character. From the script. *covers mouth*
Brainbanxs: hmmm… So you’re a biochemist with a mic, that must have been a real challenge?
Efkae: Yea it was..wasnt realy easy having to joggle between both..but i created time for both, i had friends who helped me in figuring which was paramont at a particular time.
Brainbanxs: yea real friends rare…tell us a little about your family
Efkay: come from a simple small family, first child and have a sweet younger sister.
Brainbanxs: small corperative family, so is safe to say that they support your rap career?
Efkae: my parents were’nt that supportive with me doing music at first but after somtime and listening to some of my works, they are fully behind me now.
“Go hard or go home, men were’nt born men they groomed themselves to that”
Brainbanxs: nice one man! Salute! Now back work, how long have you been into this?
Efkae: I’ll say for about 5years now
Brainbanxs: That’s a long timing coming…any major challenge that stood in your way?
Efkae: yea like I earlier said parents, then the location of my school but one major thing people being to accept change and my music change and very different from what you hear everyday.
Brainbanxs: hmm..how would you describe your own voice?
Efkae: I would say strong, its comes in hiphop sometimes fusioned with other genres e.g afro and most times poetry. its all bout talking from an abstract mind.
Brainbanxs: I like that…one musical icon in d industry that motivates you?
Efkae: I’ll say m.i abaga, he’s never scared to try new things, he’s always naija but sounds global…
“Am awake at night working, trying to prepare something to keep your minds active all day”
Brainbanxs: so how many tracks have you worked on so far?
Efkae: well quite a few but will round them up to about sixteen with freestyles.
Brainbanxs: A lot of rap music these days, heavy vocabs in their music..who are your targeted audience?
Efkae: My targeted audience are primarly the youths, but my music is educational for the young mind and adds a tingle too
Brainbanxs: Tingle? Won’t give me a headache yea? Lol 😀
Efkae: *laughs* no man it won’t, it just gives you that two seconds phase of thinking over what I said.
Brainbanxs: Ok you sound like a fighting potential, but tell us one of your major fears?
Efkae: I fear nothing because I believe nothing comes without having a control switch, so as they come I face them!
Brainbanxs: a little bit of confidence I see!*coughs* what should the people out there expect from you?
Efkae: Good music, the kind that’ll raise nigerian music to a whole new level…the export kind(M.I).
Brainbanxs: Lastly the major quote that has driven you all these years to hold one to that mic.
Efkae: “If it aint from the heart…DONT voice it”…
“Good music…the export kind”
Young, talented and promising, EfKae wont stop at nothing until his voice is heard and music exported *big grin*.You call them dreams and he calls them works in progress.
You read it here first, the only place that recognises minds that payoff…and until I come your way again….have an amazing week ahead :-);-)
