In the spirit of the holidays, Shaffy Bello has been tapped for Today’s Woman Magazine and the veteran Nollywood actress and singer looks effortless as she serves face on the cover.
Gracing the publications November/December issue, the screen goddess speaks to Today’s Woman on a number of topics including her divorce, starting a new phase of her life at 50, raising her kids and being a mum, and much more.
Describing Bello, TW magazine says the “phenomenal actress whose on-screen persona is as distinctive as her real-life character; a remarkable mother who has raised 2 independent & conscious young adults; a daughter who you will find uniquely values the essence of parenting & family; and so much more”.
Read excerpts from the interview below:
On taking the ‘Big Leap’ and moving to Nigeria permanently:
“Years before I came back to Nigeria, I remember my Pastor sitting beside my husband and telling him ‘you need to let her go to Nigeria’. Life just happened. My wings became too large. I had to fly. It was actually my (now) ex-husband that bought my ticket and I came to Nigeria for about a year. It was very rough.”
On being 50:
To me, 50 means confidence and being able to say no, being grounded. It is knowing what I want and what I don’t want and being able to stay away from what I don’t want without apologies. I am super happy and comfortable. I don’t regret anything I have done so far. It has brought me here. The journey has been great. I am confident to say God’s grace is upon me that anything I touch is not mediocre.
The new issue which is almost here sees Bello slaying a monochrome white and purple look from womenswear label Imad Eduso. In one shot, she poses with her children.
