In our first issue since the pandemic, SCHICK features Nigerian actress, producer and undeniable force, Beverly Naya as its new cover star.
In the 9th edition – themed “The Love Yourself” issue – Beverly gets candid about her award-winning documentary, Skin, the importance of self-confidence, loving yourself in your skin and more.
Here is a sneak peek of the cover story, styled by Daniel Obasi and photographed by Kashope Faje:
On Black creatives:
“I want to see more Black actors and crew members well-represented in big films and not just the ones that specifically tell a black story to a black audience.”
On her award-winning documentary, Skin:
“I had to create a documentary to raise awareness of the negative effects of colourism. I needed the powerful message of self-love and self-confidence to travel far.”
“Self-love is empowering and liberating because it allows you to own who you are wholeheartedly and unapologetically.”
On leaving a legacy:
“Legacy means power that comes from being aware and confident in who you are.”
