So, I stumbled on Modupe after reading a piece she wrote on Man Repeller - one of my favourite content websites. She had written on natural hair and there was just something about it that drew me in. Of course, I also connected with her name, seeing as it’s a Nigerian one. So first I followed her on Instagram, and her Instagram stories fascinated me. You could see just how much in-depth knowledge she had about the fashion industry and fashion writing. I was really intrigued, and in typical fashion (no pun intended!) wondered what she did for a day job.
As it turns out, she’s a freelancer that sometimes becomes a permalancer (hey, new word alert!). In her words “I'm a low-key-but-actually-definitely-high-key fashion, beauty and pop culture enthusiast from Nigeria, raised in Lesotho and then South Africa, where I now live and work. I studied fashion design, then decided to write about fashion and the culture and industry surrounding it instead”. Asides Man Repeller, she’s been published in ELLE South Africa, Refinery29, The Lake Magazine, The Luxe Digest, and so much more. As a writer, she loves good and bad puns, but just in case you can't tell from her face - she says she sings like an angel!
