Miss-K fell under Nigeria's spell.
Guess who's back ?
Blonde,Curvaceous, wild, mysterious, provocative and gorgeous,those are just few of the adjectives that qualify the enigma that is Karina Theresa Martinez, popularly known as Miss-K. The Afro-Caribbean/Latina, singer, songwriter, brand ambassador and humanitarian has just returned back to the UK from Africa.
She fell under Nigeria's spell earlier this year, where she arrived Lagos incognito, escaping the lenses of the local paparazzi.
She managed to land right on time for New Year Eve, and posted a picture of herself on New Year’s Day,on her social media page,
revealing that she was ‘on a secret project’.
“This Project is going to change Africa forever she says” Miss K has been meeting with some Government Officials, despite the difficulties which occurred before the elections. Something which also inspired enough to write new music material.Additionally she made an unexpected appearance as a Platinum V.I.P guest for the exclusive dinner debate between Jimi Agbaje and His Excellency, Governor A.Ambode.
So far, she has spent an entire 3 months there, needing to "get away from it all” and concentrate on few up-coming projects,
she has in the pipeline.
And it is easy to see why the most controversial and inspiring golden girl would choose such a country to write some of her music.
On her arrival back to the UK, while speaking to a freelance reporter for the world Media Giant,CNN, she uttered: “As a musician it is the kind of place in which the creative juices must flow as sweetly as the local palm vine - the elixir that is the lifeblood of this fascinating West African nation Music takes pride of place in Nigeria and nothing quite typifies the country's sheer verve than the sound of Afro beats. This is where you experience African life at its rawest, a place that makes the ice in your rum and coke shake to the beat”.
It has been close to 18 months since this exotic beauty touched ground with the motherland, reason why she just felt the need to reconnect with her most of favourite African spot, so much so that she is has been thinking of setting up a franchise in here.
While seemingly holing up in her secret hideout, away from the media and enjoying the beauty of the country, she was however, searched out by the National Youth Network of Nigeria for HIV/AIDS, which got wind of her presence in Abuja and succeeded in convincing her to join their HIV/ AID campaign, a request Miss- K couldn't resist, given her passion for humanitarian work.
The timing couldn’t be better as it all took place during the ‘Valentine’ period, best day to show love to humanity. She spent the day in the company of the National Secretary of Youth Network, of HIV/AIDS,Mr.Okpara, and his team, on a community HIV & AIDS Outreach Tour to three different camps in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT). The event was in conjunction with MTV Staying alive foundation’s and popular TV Series SHUGA, in partnership with MTV Base,Gates Foundation,PEPFAR, Elton John Aids Foundation,Unicef, UNFPA, NACA. Part of the day’s line up was learning how to test a patient for HIV/AIDS and encouraging people to get tested to know their HIV status while spreading love amongst those who needed it the most – those living with AIDS.
But the Mother Theresa of Africa did not stop there, as on her way back to Lagos, Miss-K also took the time to revisit the renowned Makoko-Village, where she originally shot her previous calendar 2013 with the village’s kids, showing off not only a new hairdo, with braids, but posting another photo on her social media pages, and titled it, “Lagos’s paradise”.
She came back to greet the local villagers, arriving with bags of clothes, toys, and sweets for the kids which she had brought from the UK to show gratitude and say “thank you”.
A selfless Individual indeed, this should come to no surprise to anyone who has been following Miss-K’s Humanitarian journey.
It seems Miss-K has fallen in love with Nigeria and it seems the country has fallen in love right back with Miss-K.
We now hear that Miss-K just left Nigeria, before the elections arose, flying to Paris (France) to further the course of this secretive project.
But a mystery remains.
A mystery that has been awful in its treachery, not only to the media, but to humanity as a whole.
What does Miss-K’s secret project hold…???!!
