HUMANITARIAN

History of Miss-K’s Giving-Back.

Miss K’s passion for giving back and making a difference is evident.
Her global impact transcends music, fashion and popular culture.

The Singer, Brand Ambassador, Model and Entrepreneur, who's humanitarian efforts mirror her career in the entertainment industry, which is accelerating at a record pace, particularly in Africa. Something which has earned her the title of "Mother Theresa of Africa" by  the re-known News Giant, "New Telegraph Online", when returning from her trip to Nigeria in April 2015.

She has utilized this platform to generate social impact across health, education, and humanitarian service sector especially.

Thus  far, Miss-K  has supported global campaigns for children's health and enrichment programs, HIV/AIDS and emergency response to natural disasters.

 
       Not being able to watch people suffer in her motherland Africa, 
she tries her very best to contribute to the welfare of the African youth, always aiming to put a smile to their faces, no matter how big or how little she does!

The rave musical artiste, whose wild and sensuous performances on live stages have won her thousands of admirers and fans, is no stranger to the Nigerian environment, as she has over the years visited the country on several occasions. She fell in love with the country and its people so much that she came to further business investments, including official engagements, while meeting with some governmental officials and other private concerns and individuals in respect of her humanitarian venture.

Indeed, Miss-K dreams big projects for Africa, details of which she plans to unveil soon.
During a more recent trip to Nigeria in January 2015 while seemingly holing up in her secret hideout, away from the media and enjoying the beauty of the country, Miss-K was searched out by the National Youth Network of Nigeria for HIV/AIDS, which got wind of her presence in Abuja and succeeded in convincing her to join their HIV/ AID campaign, a request Miss- K couldn’t resist, given her passion for humanitarian work.
The timing couldn't be better as it all took place during the ‘Valentine’ period, best day to show love to humanity. She spent the day in the company of the National Secretary of Youth Network, Mr.Okpara, and his team, on a community HIV & AIDS Outreach Tour in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT). 

The event was in conjunction with MTV Staying alive foundation’s and popular TV Series SHUGA, in partnership with MTV Base,Gates Foundation,PEPFAR, Elton John Aids Foundation,Unicef,UNFPA,NACA. Part of the day’s line up was learning how to test a patient for HIV/AIDS and encouraging people to get tested to know their HIV status while spreading love amongst those who needed it the most – those living with AIDS

Miss-K admitted having a fulfilled trip, as she spoke of how rewarding it was for her top have had the opportunity to meet with Mr.Okpara, who also took his time to  medically train her personally, on how to test patients
enforcing how much of an impact such a day could make in someone’s life.

Aside this, she also had the opportunity to reconnect with a kindred sister, an Afro-Caribbean & American, UN Human right activist, Ambassador Dr. Russell, who specializes on exotic diseases, with whom she discussed the HIV epidemics in West Africa and the possibility of partnering in the near future to bring succour to the sufferers.

The former MTN model (2008-2009) speaks glowingly of Nigeria, a country she describes as the motherland and recalls with some nostalgic excitement, recounting her visit to places like Makoko village in Lagos which she visited in 2012, and where she organised a photo-shoot for the production of her 2013 calendar, which she releases yearly exploring each year a different location and theme.

Miss-K made an impact when returning to Makoko Village, in Lagos

to reconnect with the people and most importantly the children that she loves so dearly, to whom she donated several boxes of items such as clothes, shoes, toys, books, amongst others, all of which she brought all the way from the UK.







In 2012, she embarked on a new project titled SU4A "Stand up for AfriKa" a landmark package & gift she desires to offer Africans and the less privileged especially. This, she contended, goes beyond the exhibition of goodwill but will be memorable and will impact on their future lives.
