Hamamat Montia

This beautiful sista is Hamamat Montia.  She is a beautiful African model.  This is an interview she did with  Debonair magazine.

To begin with, Hamamat is fully Ghanaian. Her dad is Sisala from Kandia Upper West Region and her mum is from Bongo in the Upper East Region of Ghana. Now this is what you probably did not know. Hamamat was born in Bolgatanga but moved to Accra in her tot stages. Her early days were characterized by happy memories shared with her extended family with lots of kids while in the northern part of Ghana before moving to Accra. Her mum Aisha Taimoko is everything to her. She is a naturalist, a cook, owned restaurants, sold Shea butter and an organic freak who has continuously influenced her existence to this very day.
The Hamamat we know and have come to love is not a recent development.  Before Malaika she did have a life; she was your typical teenager who would do everything every teenager her age would do. Growing up, visions changed and dreams changed. Miss Malaika came at the stage where she was on the heights of the need to discover herself. It was a life changing experience which greatly impacted her life. The Hamamat brand was bound to succeed and Malaika was just the perfect springboard for this leap which has pushed her into the limelight.

Just like the misconceptions people have of her that have to be cleared, she seeks to clear the misconceptions that exist about her people in the northern part of Ghana. Most dominant of which is that people in the north are afraid of getting rich because they think it will change their life. “Yes my people are mostly poor but it doesn’t translate they are deprived of the zeal for success. Just like everybody they have dreams and aspirations and yearn to be heard. Although contentment is settling they are a happy people in spite of their circumstances. So this is why I do what do I what I do to tell their story with fashion.

Lately, you’ll see a lot of Hamamat on social media in something African. The direction of that is to showcase Africa in every sense; be it in terms of fashion or its places particularly the northern part of Ghana.
Hamamat is a proud African brand because Hamamat is an African woman showcasing Africa everywhere. On the other hand, Hamamat is not associated with any particular brand house. She wears what she feels reflects her identity. “You would mostly see me wear Kakaa though and that is because she understands my style preference and knows very well I like to represent myself in what I wear. But aside her, if I feel any other particular designer suits what I represent, I will wear their work. For instance Suzzy in Osu. I feel happy wearing her designs because my business supports her livelihood and that puts a smile on my face. It doesn’t matter the size of the designer I will wear their works so far it suits my brand.”

Hamamat is a creative person and she likes to express that by contributing to the designing of what she wears. She actually has a say in what she wears. Also, Hamamat does everything African. That is the trademark. Some may think it’s limiting but Africa is the origination of many styles we see around us. The influence of African fashion is ever reaching into almost every other culture you may think about and this is not surprising because Africa is the hub of civilization and fashion is one the few remnants of this influence we have on the world. So in a few words, she does a variety of African-influenced styles from ranging from vintage, modern, contemporary, and simplistic to hip. She doesn’t put herself into one box of style because that to her is limiting.

She has two beautiful girls; Zuri and Safari who are both 4 years and 15 months respectively. But at heart, she insists she is a mother to any child who loves to teach others just as she would teach her own. “It wasn’t hard. It was more like an innate part of my being so I just embraced what was truly within and it took my kids to bring in that changed in my life. “
According to her, she doesn’t need a specific day such as mother’s day because she treasures each day and shows her love accordingly. Parenting to her is about making long-lasting indelible memories with your kids so she tries to create as many memories each day with them just as her mum shared with her because life is too short to lose even a second of it, she believes.

Life is unpredictable and so is Hamamat so expecting one thing in particular from Hamamat will get you disappointed. But one thing that is definite is that whatever that is going to come from her in the future will be impactful and amazing. As she travels all over Africa and her own country she will continually draw inspiration which will spiral her into doing and achieving more. So all I can say is that the future is bright with a daring mama bear who draws inspiration to change the world from her baby cubs.
