Name: Saheed Olamilekan Adeyemi
FAB thing about your name: The FAB thing about my name is that it sounds sexy. It calls attention here in the white man’s world. Some say it sounds like a terrorist’s name, but I ask them, “have you ever seen a bald and black terrorist like myself?” (lol). And you can imagine how hard it is to try and explain all these in Portuguese seeing as that is the official language here in Brazil. Brazilians sometimes find it difficult to pronounce my name and they end up calling me ‘Sair-Gee’ . When I attended the audition of Big Brother 6 last year, after receiving a call from Angela Satori of BBA South Africa, I was asked to pronounce my name which I did and she (Angela) said it was a really sweet name. Well, that made me blush (lol).
Country of origin: Nigeria/ Lagos
FAB thing about your country of origin: As they say “There is no place like home”. The FAB thing about my home is that we possess the ability to improvise and adapt to any given situation. We have had our struggles but in the end, we can still beat our chests and able to call ourselves a success. For example, our entertainment industry has greatly improved, seeing as we started from almost nothing; we have never given up the fight.
Country of residence: Brazil/ Brasilia DF (Distrito Federal)
Occupation: I’m a student and a model for Mega Models, Brazil/Brasilía DF
Describe yourself in three words: *Talented* *Easygoing* *Humble*
What makes you FABulous African Black: Being original, being proud of my skin color and never letting Africa down. Like my father always says “Africa is the most blessed among all continents whether you like it or not, because Jah Jah made it so”
