here are excerpts from their conversation with Chidinma Igbokweuche
When it became official that Adesua Etomi-Wellington and Dakore Egbuson-Akande would cover this month’s The Covermagazine, I knew we were in for a treat. Having encountered both of them at separate occasions (that they would definitely not remember), my excitement was real. So one thing I knew for sure was that the vibe was going to be great. There wasn’t going to be all of those, “diva-ness” on set.
My thoughts were confirmed when Dakore walked onto set with the most adorable surprise – her babies! Two minutes with them and I knew Dakore was qualified to write a book on being a mummy if she chose to – her daughters were the most adorable beings.
What caught my attention was their fearlessness and the bond between them and their mom. The questions kept coming, “Mummy are we taking the elevator?”, “Mummy this place looks like the airport” (we were shooting at the Access Bank headquarters) and with a smile on her face, she answered all their questions every time.
Meanwhile, it is hard not to turn around twice when our second guest walks into a room. As she stepped onto set, I initially turned, thinking, ‘oh who is this lovely beautiful lady?’
But then, I did a double take as I realized it was the Vogue-covering, award-winning Adesua Etomi-Wellington. The thing with Adesua is that everyone notices her when she enters a room and she doesn’t even have to make an effort. She has an aura, an amazing aura you cannot miss.
