How do you train your abs? One secret to your toned body.
A huge abs secret of time is super sets with no limits or bounds. I take this inspiration from Muhammad Ali as he said that he only starts to count when it hurts. The only time the sets finish is when my body physically can’t go anymore, and tears are forced out of my eyes due to its intensity. I was never a person that liked limitations on my training.
I do 3 abs workouts in one with an aim for how many of the first 2 I would like to complete before making the last set limitless which is normally 20 of each of the first two workouts & a limitless third. My supersets normally consist of Knee crunches, Russian twist & leg raises.
I personally find these the fastest and most effective in achieving solid results that remain even when not always training.
Do you take some special diet or have a strict menu that you follow to remain healthy and physically fit?
I wouldn’t say I have a strict diet as I believe in eating whatever you like with training afterwards to make sure the right foods go to the right places of the body once consumed instead of letting it sit and go to places that we might not always be pleased with. I have an amazing chef to look up to as my grandma who makes the best traditional African food which is overall extremely healthy. It gives me all the things the body needs to consume to function as a high rate without being worn out.
My favourite dishes are,
- FuFu with Granat soup (peanut soup) that contains all kinds of meat like Beef, Lamb, chicken, goat ETC all exceptionally good for weight gain and nutrition.
- Jollof rice with vegetables and lamb chops
- Cassava leaf which is a famous African dish made with rice
- Okra soup with either rice Or Fufu
- Plantain with my family’s secret spicy sauce
- Can Can Can which is one of my all-time favourite dishes that contains fried up beef or lamb which with bread crumbs, onions & scotch bonnet chilli which I love. This dish is also one of my favourites because it’s a dish that is put in a massive tray for the whole family to eat together and bond over how good the taste is.
All these foods contain many of the nutrients my body needs to stay solid and which I am very grateful for.

You have glowing skin and gorgeous hair. Share with us your haircare and skincare routine.
I used to have profoundly serious acne growing up from age 11. I was always trying new remedies for skin with natural herbs that I would find on the internet that would only work in the moment but not make a difference long term. Eventually I learnt that it was most to do with growing up and consuming way too much sugar/treats so when I cleaned up my diet and cut out all sugar and junk I saw a huge difference although I have it here and there I don’t consume in large quantities as I used to and my skin started glowing from the inside out. I now only use natural coconut oil for my skin to keep it soft and glowing all around & reduced my make-up.
Wearing make-up almost every day of my life in the past had a huge part to play in my extreme breakouts due to my skin never having the time it needed to breath. All the little changes I learnt to adapt to as I got older helped my skin a lot.
As for my hair I have an afro with very curly hair that I have kept fresh and untouched for years while wearing wigs as a replacement during my hair care recovery. Wearing wigs helped me a lot with my natural hair growth as I could change my look daily without damaging my real hair with constant heat and artificial hair products. I now also use olive oil, Aloe Vera & coconut oil on my hair to maintain its healthy strength & curls.
