Ms. Naya, how was your 2016?
2016 was my happiest and most prosperous year I’ve had in Nigeria. I have matured both professionally and personally and I am looking forward to what’s next for me.
How did you reach this point?
I came to an understanding this year that I can only worry about things that I can control. I am not bitter about things I don’t get and I learned to let go and let God, while also realizing that no doesn’t mean never, it just means not now.
Are these some of the lessons you pass on the girls in 50 Shades of Black?
While I haven’t had much time to engage with girls due to work, I make sure that I share with them these core principles. I want the girls to understand that they are worthy and to never allow themselves to be a victim. I hope to convey to them that if they truly believe in their abilities, then they deserve to go wherever they want.
