It’s the third edition of BM|Pro Covers and April’s cover girl is Rahama Babangida, the ‘Deva Princess’. Banke Meshida-Lawal, CEO and head makeup artist at BM|Pro shares her tale of Rahama,
When I met her over 10 years ago I was struck by her pure beauty. Looooong hair, smoothest skin ever, perfect nails and her gentle persona made her all the more beautiful. Fast forward to now, growth has come.
The hair is tinged with red, grey, brown strands, skin is still as smooth, and she is the most hilarious person. There is a glint in her eye as she talks. She has followed her passion and is the CEO of Deva Petals, an oasis of wellness products in Abuja. Hair growth serums, Body Oils, Turaren Wuta. She loves to create.
Blessed with rich Kanuri heritage, knowledge of potions that promote wellness and well-being is what has made Deva Petals the success story that it is. Humble beginnings. She started by mixing pastes and potions for close family and friends who wanted her smooth skin and long hair secrets. She started bottling them up and today the rest is history.
Her love for fashion also led to the establishment of Fashion Cafe Abuja, an accessory and clothing shop.”
