When she posed almost nude for Sports Illustrated a few weeks back, Nigerian American model Adaora Akubilo got some strong reactions from those who criticised her decision to shed her bikini top. Now Akubilo is back to counter her critics.
She responded to critics by saying her father is proud of what she’s doing, adding that she’s making her money and also celebrating her body. “Well, what I would say about the blog posts and the unclothed thing, my father is very proud of me, first and foremost. I am a well rounded individual. I did everything he wanted me to do, and kind of like what I wanted to do, like going to school, getting my education, and this is just something that I’m adding to my resume and my life achievements and accomplishments so he’s very proud of me. And as long as I’m happy that’s all he cares about,” the model said.
“My photos are done in a tasteful way. Like I’m being a little coy with it, you know, I’m kind of like hiding it a little bit. I’m hiding my “Blunder”; it’s not all out there like hello (laughs). It’s done in a very tasteful way and I would never compromise myself. If I wasn’t comfortable doing it and if I felt like I was in some way doing something that would embarrass my family, i would not do it. I would never do anything that would embarrass my family or myself for that matter. So it’s unclothed done in a tasteful way… and if you’re comfortable. God created these bodies of ours, you know, I’m just celebrating it and getting paid at the same time so that’s a good thing,” added Adaora.by
