OTTAWA - EntSun -- Akinyemi Akinro is a Nigerian fashion model and designer based in Canada. Before getting into fashion in 2015, Akinro studied Mechanical Engineering at the University of Ottawa and was discovered on Instagram by a modelling agency. In this interview by Segun Adebayo, Akinro speaks on his modelling career, coming back home and other issues.

You are a Nigerian but you stay in Canada, how big is the modelling industry over there?
The industry is quite big. I live close to Montréal which is regarded as the home of fashion. I stay well connected because of where I'm from, Nigeria. A lot of people love the culture, the music and everything.
What's your take on Nigerians seeking to come to Canada?

At this point in time in Nigeria, I would say they should make it happen. Try finding someone there you already know and go for it. Canada is an amazing place to find yourself. Living here is much easier. There are so many ways to get better at what you do and make money at the same time. Just be prepared to handle the cold.
How would you say being in that place has impacted on your career?
Being here has made me really focus on my craft. There are so many opportunities and ways to get what I need to achieve. There are a lot of talented people here too so I pick up a few things hanging around them.
