The renowned writer shared lovely photos of herself on Instagram. She said that the stunning pictures were rejected by an international magazine because she appeared “too glamourous”.

She wrote;

”It was a cover shoot for an international magazine. Or it was supposed to be. The magazine rejected the photos. They didn’t want me ‘looking too glamorous,’ they said. And so the cover didn’t happen. What does one do with rejected photos but show them anyway, primarily for the vanity-boosting benefits of such an act, but also to celebrate and thank these talented people in Lagos”.
