This gorgeous woman is Onika Dennis. This full figured beauty is 24 years old from Trinidad. She is sexy from head to toe! She is making a lot of noise on the modeling scene. Here’s a recent interview,she tells a little bit about herself.
When did you start modeling?
Onika: I first started modeling at the age of 17 doing mainly runway with a company named Redrunway. Photoshoots really weren’t my thing cause I always thought that I wasn’t that photogenic.
What inspired you into modeling?
Onika: I always wanted to do runway because I felt that it would help me to improve my self-esteem, which I did cause he runway training teaches u to walk with your head high and be more confident.
What’s life like being on a beautiful island like Trinidad?
Onika: Firstly is hot! lol, but most of all its fun there is always something to get your mind off whatever problems. In other words there is always a “lime” somewhere as Trinidadians will say, to help relax me.
What’s your favorite food?
Onika: Provision and salt fish
Any African musicians you love and would love to work with?
Onika: I love love love Azonto (Fuse ODG), Iyanya and Yemi Alade…these artists literally give me life lol
What’s the hardest thing in being a thick model?
Onika:The hardest thing I will have to say is trying to be sexy without showing that much skin. Its like people expect me to show off everything but I have always realized from really young that I was different from the pack. So I set out to show young girls in particular that classy is sexy and that’s difficult ’cause a lot of their minds are already set in seeing the skin of thick models.
Which brands would you love to work with in the immediate future?
Onika: Fashion Nova — their clothes are close to perfection, each and everyone of them.
How do you describe your fashion sense?
Onika: I can be just classy or classy and sexy as hell. I’m a fan of ‘less is more’ where clothes are concerned so u will never really see me in overdone outfits. I keep it simple and sexy.
Finally, how do you wish to inspire young people who want to model, what can you tell them?
Onika: “Let your personality shine through. It’s your biggest differentiator and will attract the right people to your business.” — Jonathan Cooney… And don’t change who you are for the sake of popularity on social media.
This vision of loveliness is Nikita Guy. This beautiful sista from Trinidad started modeling in 2015. Her fan base has grown quite rapidly. And judging from these pictures I can see why.
Nikita has more than 165,000 followers on Instagram. Be sure to check her out.
They don’t come much prettier than Khadija Shari. This chocolate complexion cutie is a dancer and model. Shari has one of those faces you could stare at forever. She might be the closest thing I’ve seen to my ideal woman. At least from a physical perspective.
Khadija has been pursuing a professional career as a dancer and model for the past seven years. She was born in Trinidad but raised in Brooklyn which is where she found her love the arts at a young age. Since then, she’s danced alongside Grammy Award winners like Beyonce, Rihanna, has toured all over the world just to name a few of her amazing accomplishments.
Well what do we have here. It seems as though mixed martial arts fighter Ronda Rousey as some “black” in here bloodline. I noticed in this picture she has braids in her hair. Maybe she’s trying to get in touch with her “African roots”. Who knows right? I had a co-worker tell me she was part black last year. Of course I didn’t believe it all. But after a little research I found a little information on it. But it wasn’t a big deal me. There are many white celebs that have a black relative from waaaaaaaaaaaay back in the day. But I guess the subject came up again when TMZ released a recent video with Rousey and her mother.
Of course this is not totally shocking but most white celebs don’t mention their black ancestry. That information is usually dug up by someone else because there is no real advantage to admitting some black ancestry in a racist white society. This is the break down of her family background. She is the daughter of Ann Maria Rousey DeMars (born Waddell), a judoka and author, and Ronald John Rousey.
Ronda’s maternal grandfather was of Trinidadian and Grenadian descent (including African, Spanish, and English ancestry). Ronda’s other ancestry is English, 1/16th Polish, German, Scottish, and distant Dutch.
Ronda has said that her ancestry is “half venezuelan, a quarter English, a quarter polish, 100% American”. Her reference to “Venezuelan” ancestry likely refers to the fact that the island of Trinidad, where her grandfather’s family was from, is just 11km off the northeastern coast of Venezuela. Ronda’s first three fractions are not quite correct: she is of one quarter Caribbean ancestry, not half, she has English ancestry, to one degree or the other, from all four of her grandparents, and her Polish ancestry is one sixteenth, not one quarter.
Ronda’s paternal grandparents were John Edward Rousey (the son of Clarence James Rousey and Theresa Ellen De Moss) and Jean Orvetta Zifka (the daughter of Charles O. Zifka and Lenice O. Dilley). Charles was born in Wisconsin, to a Polish father, Lawrence Zifka, and an American mother, Elzina Smith.
Ronda’s maternal grandfather is Joseph Arthur Waddell (the son of Alfred Ernest Waddell and Emelia/Amelia Maria/Mona Castillo). Joseph was born in New York. Alfred was born in Tunapuna, Trinidad and Tobago, to Joseph Waddell, who was English, and Claudine Angus Abbott, who was from St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Amelia was born in Trinidad, to Pedro Castillo and Maria Hernandez.
Ronda’s maternal grandmother is Marcella Ann Austin (the daughter of Anthony Austin and Reva/Rena Landon). Marcella was born in Illinois. Anthony was born in Indiana. Reva was born in Illinois, to Laurence Landon and Mayme Price.
Now you have silly ass negroes going around saying she should be considered a black woman. This is insanity! I covered this issue once before last year.
But this is NOT a black woman. She is not African. I don’t care what Rousey’s mother says. Just because a white person has a great-great grandparent that was black or mulatto does not make them black. This is once again that crazy “one drop rule” gone wild. Blogger Authenic African Vanguard once said:
“The Ignorance Of Blacks/Africans Accepting The False One Drop Rule Has Caused A Lot Of Confusion Among Africans. Which Is Why The IMA Constantly Promotes It To Keep Africans In The State Of Disarray. When The European/IMA Has Control Over Your Own Racial Identity,He Is Able To Manipulate Africans Into Accepting His Bastard Offspring And Even Put Them In Positions Of Power Over “Authentic” Africans. Recently A IMA Female Actor Meryl Streep Said In Front Of An All White Film Panel (“There is a core of humanity that travels right through every culture, and after all we’re all from Africa originally,” she added. “Berliners, we’re all Africans really.”) The Deceptiveness Of “We Are All Africans” Minimizes And Ignores Crimes & Injustices Committed Against Africans Worldwide, Based Solely On The Fact That They Are “Authentic” Africans. This Is Why There Is An Urgent Need For ACBN Thought Among Blacks/Africans Internationally. The World Is Ran By Individuals With A “Racial” Group Identity. Individuals Linked Together Simply By A Distinctive Phenotype.”
Those are very true words! Very well said statement by an intelligent man.. And we as black people must stop trying to claim every single person that has some black ancestry from way back in the day. It makes us look pathetic trying to claim people who obviously don’t look like us or want to have anything to do with us. We should be a prideful people and embrace our African culture and heritage. And we definitely don’t need to claim some overhyped,overglorified unattractive white martial artist fighter. This white woman has NO African traits. Skin color,hair texture or phenotypes. So let’s keep it real.
So I hope this helps you with any confusion you may have. She’s not one of us. And I don’t give a damn if she puts her hair in braids,dreadlocks or bantu knots.
