Top Beauty Vlogging Tips from YouTube Sensation, Fumi Desalu-Vold

Lets get one thing clear, Fumi is so much more than a vlogger but I had to keep the title short.  The strings to her fabulous bow include: reigned supreme as West Africa’s first supermodel, handpicked by Puff Daddy himself to feature in his Public Enemy video, worked as a model for top brands like Versace, Michael Korrs and Yohji Yamamoto, starred in Ugly Betty, acted alongside Eddie Murphy in Norbit,Trilingual (English, Afrikanns and Norwegian) and in addition to all this her YouTube channel with over 15,000 active subscribers keeps growing by the minute.

Batik Print Kaftan

As you know (if you read my last post), last weekend, I took pictures of Daniel at Bogobiri in Lagos.
