This month’s edition of BM|Pro Covers features the stunning TV presenter Salma Phillips. The Northern beauty looks stunning on this September edition with bright pink eyes, white henna on her hand and gorgeous, flawless skin!

Banke Meshida-Lawal had this to say about working with the hot mum!

Salma has such clear and smooth skin, my BM|Pro HD Primer melted easily like butter on it. Same way it’s easy to warm up to her especially when she assumes the role of interviewer. You just easily spill your guts and the temptation to hold nothing back is high! She draws out information from people through her role as TV girl. She hosts 2 talk shows, one in Hausa and the other in English Language, yet with a northern address, giving insight into issues faced especially by women and the girl child.

This was a first for me and I applaud her. Digging deep, especially faced with a culture that shrouds things and experiences in mystery cannot be easy, but Salma does it and with such grace. Her show airs on Africa Magic Urban on DSTV Channel 153 and is in its 2nd season. I ask her why her local language and she says it helps her connect with her guests. They share some of their deepest secrets and this in turn should offer relief/closure in some cases.

A problem shared is a problem half solved! I guess some things cannot be translated into English without losing its deep connotation!

My shoot would not have been complete without Henna, a part of the Northern culture. Not in its common form but with a unique flavor. The Henna Place Lagos made my look come to life with the All New White Henna. The henna artist scribbled with such dexterity, it was Amazing!

Well done Salma!

      If you do not have anything to say about yoruba and igbo sisters please zip your mouth. Covering your body up doesn’t make you hausua women morally better than any other person!

    We see why we the younger generation should be careful in Nigeria because the older generation that have sown the seeds of hatred, discord and mistrust in the society will all die and leave us and we will be left to help them reap it. We should all in our quiet moment wonder if this is the path we want to follow which i can bet you all tribalist will lead to destruction. Then we wonder why we cannot move forward politically, socially, economically as a country. Because no matter the subject in question we always air our divisive views. Only fools rant, so please we should grow up. Hatred is not good for any one.

    @Hadiza for your information i know Salma very well, her father is Fulani and her mother is from Rivers and she feels strongly about both her heritage. You are here taking panadol for another man’s headache.
