The Surprise Shoot – Chioma’s Motorcycle Diaries
From Egor Efiok of E4 PR – With Chioma Akpotha’s rock chic makeover shoot, I was very worried that it may not come out exactly how I wanted it and the shoot had to be cancelled until I was sure that everything was in place. The reason I was so particular about Chioma’s shoot was because I wanted the public to see another side to her other than the “angelic/goody two shoes” image that people have of her. Chioma is a very good actress, so it was important for people to see that she can also be sassy. When I was planning Chioma’s look, I said to her “please just allow me roughen you up for a day”, and my oh my did she nail it! Chioma gave the correct attitude and was a proper Ruff Rider/Ride Or Die Chick during the shoot. I could not believe how good she was and was so impressed. The guy that brought the bike and other bikers, Davies Bassey, was also a pro. He helped direct the shoot and even helped Princess finish off Chioma’s tattoo. You know, Princess is an artist as well as a make-up artist, so fancy meeting another artist that turned out to be one of the bikers! It was really awesome.
