Somkele Iyamah-Idhalama has proven over a number of years, that whatever role she takes on, big or small, straight or quirky, funny or dramatic, she will give it her all. Oftentimes stealing the show! From her role in the ever-so-popular web-series Gidi Up, to her critically acclaimed role as Dr. Ada, one of the brave medical practitioners who sacrificed their own well-being in order to ensure that Lagos was saved from the deadly Ebola virus, in 93 Days; one cannot doubt the quality of this woman’s work!
But there’s even more to Somkele than the diverse roles she plays. She is also a businesswoman, heading the Nigerian branch of the very popular swimwear brand, Andrea Iyamah – from whence all the killer swimwear featured on these pages came!
