Check it out! Munachi Abii House of Maliq -Munachi & Ifan - April 2014 - BellaNaija - 021

House of Maliq: From one-time beauty queen to music rap artist, how do you marry these personalities and on what platforms have you comfortably showcased these persons?

Muna: Being a beauty queen was a great platform to begin my career. Sure, it came with a lot of uncertainty because people already chose to see me a certain way, but I refused to be put in a box. So I defined myself, and create my own platform. It’s a tough marriage lol but it’s working.

HOM: What inspires your sense of style?

Muna: My feelings inspire my sense of style. Sometimes I’m happy, sometimes I’m tough, these days I’m royal.

HOM: You recently transitioned into a new hair phase. A short blonde bob. Quite a daring image statement; what gave rise to the change?

Muna: I felt I needed a new character with more definition. If you have been following my transition, you would recall that I’ve worn a lot of interesting hair styles and colours well before anyone dared to make it chic. However, there is something about this one that feels like home. When u think of MUNA, you want to see a lady with blonde hair, and that’s me. The blonde is here to stay!

HOM: How long would this style transition last and what steps are you taking to effortlessly wear this image?

Muna: Who knows these things ? Looool the blonde is here to stay.

HOM: Are there any (other) grand music projects in the offering (perhaps a solo music video or even an album release) in the near future?

Muna: I am currently working with Lamboginny on an EP project titled “The Movement” after which my album should drop. God willing.

HOM: How about other bigger life plans and aspirations. Marriage maybe and probably raising a family?

Muna: I’ve got plans for TV, I’ve got plans for agriculture, I’ve got plans in real estate and architecture. And yes definitely raising a family. House of Maliq -Munachi & Ifan - April 2014 - BellaNaija - 029

HOM:  What especially would you want to be remembered for?

Muna: I would like to be remembered as the woman who achieved everything she set out to do. With my life as an example, I showed the world that I could do it and I did it.

    All that contouring on Muna’s face has got her looking like one of the creatures in Avatar. What’s all that about? Nigerians just don’t know when to stop.

      Just what i was thinking, too much, looks like they slapped on charcoal on her face… love the concept though but makeup no!

    MUA should be sacked. That is all.

    Taking a second look, yes the make up is awful and was obviously applied with a trowel but, Muna isn’t helping with her blank stares – her eyes look dead and her poses, so… posed? In sum, it seems there’s a mismatch between the art direction and the final result. My guess is they were going for old school glamour a la Cruella de Vil but with her deadpan expressions, it doesn’t work (good old Ms. de Vil looked like she was having more fun). Nevertheless, I still think the MUA is the biggest offender here – unless she/he was channelling Maleficent, she/he has no business making such a pretty girl look so rough! That said I really like the 6th pic (the b&w one), she looks lovely in it.
