Banke Meshida-Lawal, CEO and head makeup artist at BM|Pro shares her tale of Rahama,

When I met her over 10 years ago I was struck by her pure beauty. Looooong hair, smoothest skin ever, perfect nails and her gentle persona made her all the more beautiful. Fast forward to now, growth has come.

The hair is tinged with red, grey, brown strands, skin is still as smooth, and she is the most hilarious person. There is a glint in her eye as she talks. She has followed her passion and is the CEO of Deva Petals, an oasis of wellness products in Abuja. Hair growth serums, Body Oils, Turaren Wuta. She loves to create.

Blessed with rich Kanuri heritage, knowledge of potions that promote wellness and well-being is what has made Deva Petals the success story that it is. Humble beginnings. She started by mixing pastes and potions for close family and friends who wanted her smooth skin and long hair secrets. She started bottling them up and today the rest is history.

Her love for fashion also led to the establishment of Fashion Cafe Abuja, an accessory and clothing shop.”

      She’s gorgeous. Her hair is luscious, her skin is like butter. Her skin color, is yummy smooth dark caramel. Some people are just blessed with beauty. Where can I buy her products? Does she ship to Cali? I need a glowing, radiant skin this summer.

      What’s wrong with Kimora’s statement, that’s just the simple truth. This trend is not common among girls from the North, that’s actually a knowledgeable statement..

      Plus lots of POOR Hausa people are not fine. What you see on bellanaija is selective.

    Its not even fair at all. What gives them the right to be fining anyhow like this na eh? Even without the makeup, I’m very sure this babe will still be over fine. Its just not fair at all.

    She’s so beautiful she looks edible! I’ve noticed some comments here and they’re very similar to those on LIB, seems like Rahama’s beauty’s giving some people sleepless nights. Where did you see the towel? Her dress probably started just at the cut of the picture and you’re already judging her? Deal with it and move on! Rahama, you’re beautiful and no amount of hate can change that.

      She had a towel on, not a dress, when people were complaining abt the towel on linda ikeji, linda changed the picture. so no 1 is judging. i believe people are free to express their opinions.
