Must See Photos! TV Personality Yvonne “Vixen” Ekwere unveils her Alter Egos | Meet “Mr Ekwere” & “Imoh”



Talk about two different sides to Yvonne ‘Vixen” Ekwere!

Nigerian TV personality Yvonne “Vixen” Ekwere is known for oozing demure glamour on the red carpet and at social events but today the star sheds all that in a creative photo shoot where she channels her alter egos – Mr Ekwere and Imoh

In November 2012, Yvonne unveiled her first alter ego Rashida ( A Fela girl). Now meet the other two personalities.

Here’s how Yvonne describes her alter egos;

The new Alters reflect Vixens “Tomboy” and calm”spirited” side.

“Mr Ekwere”- is the tough, outspoken and fearless guy next door who takes pride in expressing himself without limits. He’s hard working, down to earth but can be brutally sincere; this alter ego reflects Vixen’s Tomboy traits in reality.

“Imoh” is an extremely calm and almost un-real. She is the force that keeps Vixen lucid in times of stress and chaos. She is arty and spiritual, she is vixen’s Inner-woman.

Check out the photo shoot.

    Whats with this alter ego thing self, i feel its more of showing the demons living to d world or giving d demons faces for people to relate to. i mean, it makes no sense nw. pls nigerians should do better things wiyh their tym instead of copying ‘oyinbo’ trends. alter ego ko,alter ego nii.

    Folllow Follow! Copy cat! Lady Gaga has an alter ego, Beyonce has an alter ego, you too you want to follow. Nigerians will not be innovative, just busy doing everything done in the US. Honestly, we’ve seen this before. Do something else. Yawn.

    April 5, 2013 at 2:14 pm

    the only problem i see here is dat i know she doesnt know what alter ego is and what causes it, if she did she wouldnt b doin this to her self tinking is fun. and plz stop making every tin luk cool n trendy like dem americans cus some of dis stuff u guz put out to the youth r goin to destroy dem. plz think about our youth

    Now if this lady was born cursed, she’d say she wants to be a man bcos she looks like one, cursed and confused(by satan) individuals that engage in that, but thank God she isn’t..This is very interesting art.

    April 5, 2013 at 3:30 pm

    Girl! Dont open yourself up to stuff you know nothing about. Beyonce and Lady Gaga are high grade witches that allow themselves to be possessed when they perform. Its even so glaring in Beyonce is sweet and demure in ordinarily but turns into a vixen when onstage. Pure possession. Don’t follow in their footsteps. Jesus is coming soon.

    April 5, 2013 at 4:44 pm

    How is this supposed to help make the world a better place? Anyway, the world is gone already. When crazy things become the norm. Soon Vixen will decide to go out as one of these characters and then children will want to do the same, if not allowed they’ll rebel against their parents and then against their schools and then against legal authority and then boys will want to use female toilets…

    April 5, 2013 at 7:23 pm

    Wow! Amazing. You’ve got to give this girl props, she is just so unique. This concept is so out of the box, I’m proud of her. If only she were a guy, i would fantasize all day lol. i love ur youtube channel, I’m a big fan babe, ride on!

  42. Dot

    April 5, 2013 at 7:41 pm

    I just don’t get why some of you are just hateful. If you don’t have anything nice to say then don’t say anything at all. You think by hiding behind your gadgets, dissing hard working celebrities like her would make u half as popular as she is!? No. I applaud her creativity, nobody has thought to pull this off and she did. What are you haters doing? If only you get paid to Hate then we would understand. Well done Yvonne.

  43. Dare

    April 5, 2013 at 8:04 pm

    Y’all should stop hating and give her props! The photos are tewwww dope man! I’ve got mad love for this babe. Alter egos don’t mean a person is posed, like she said- she is only showing her different personalities. I met her once and was surprised to learn that beyond all the glitz, she is actually very down to earth and a tomboy too. She’s cooler than cool!

    Attention seeker. I understand Beyonce’s Sasha Fierce and Nicki Minaj’s Roman but who is she to have an alter-ego lol ? Please what is her job ? And does she even know what a vixen is … abeg

  53. Ola

    April 7, 2013 at 8:40 am

    Does she know what it means to have an alter ego? Is she possessed? She should listen to lady gaga and beyonce’s explanation before saying she says she has one talk less of more. Just call them “legion” because they are many.

  54. chizzy

    April 7, 2013 at 2:57 pm

    Creativity in the highest place. But, pls I hate diz alter-ego of a thing. Since beyounce made it known to us, our celebrities want to overuse it. Pls give d pix anoda captivating……and enogh of alter-ego. Mtshweeeeee

  55. Funke

    April 7, 2013 at 6:08 pm

    The makeup artist is goooooooooooooooood!

  56. Ada beke

    April 7, 2013 at 10:10 pm

    Guys come on. Cut her some slack and think outside the box. The whole idea behind alter egos is to create characters which an artist, stylist and photographer can work with to showcase their range in skills. Now we can see how creative come of these folks can be. Vixen is clearly a muse or model and likely the brain behind this brilliant concept. Looking forward to more. If you don’t understand it, just ask for clarity rather than being so negative

  57. HABBA

    she looks like a correct igbo man! lol

    Vixen, an alter ego is not a good thing, it’s a multiple personality disorder, peeps with genuine cases don’t even know the good or evil their other personality does while they are not in their right senses, I suggest u find out things before delving into it. Just cause some “Celebs” are into it doesn’t mean u should follow suit. I have no idea what d point is, I assume u also don’t have a good reason to do this….. It’s a self esteem issue….

    That being said, the makeup was on point!!!!!!!!!!! I’m sure the bald cap was used….. This makeup could be used for movies and photography sessions not promoting alter ego…

    Maybe she’s a drag king – Drag kings are mostly female performance artists who dress in masculine drag and personify male gender stereotypes as part of their routine. Who knows? She could be the female equivalent of Denrele.
