Myss of the Week – Adepero Oduye

Let me weep, Solomon. I’ve done dishonourable things to survive yet I am still here. Let me weep for my children….She’s the other supporting actress in 12 Years A Slave. Separated from her children and drowning in sorrow everyday until she was taken away from the plantation, never to be seen again. Adepero is known as an American actress, though born to Nigerian parents, She is still an African celeb in our eyes.

Oduye is one of seven children born to her Nigerian parents. She graduated from Cornell university. She began appearing in short films such as Water and Fall, and in 2006 appeared in the independent drama Half Nelson. After several roles in off-Broadway production, in 2009, she debuted on Broadway in the musical Fela! She starred in the critically acclaimed independent film Pariah and has received several awards including a nomination for Independent Spirit Award for Best Female Lead. She recently starred alongside Chiwetel Ejiofor and Kenyan Lupita Nyog’o in the film 12 Years a Slave, directed by Steve Mcqueen. This unsung hero of 12 Years A Slave makes the movie even more real to viewers, you cannot but not be moved for this woman who suffered slavery, abuse and separation from her children.

She’s got the athletic toned body to die for and she knows how to rock it with figure hugging ensembles. She very distinct with her short curls and dazzles with accessories. Here is her fashion journey so far….
