Zenobia: Our aim is to make our ladies feel unique, gorgeous and feel more like a celebrity as the word “diva” means. So that’s how I came up with the Zendiva.
MBA: And the existence? Or you just woke up one day and set it up?
Zenobia: It is my hobby and decided to make it more professional, so I had a certificate in all types of makeup and after I brought this up as my business.
MBA: That impressive. Zenobia can you tell us about your childhood?
Zenobia: I had an interesting childhood, always with my dolls and been indoors.
MBA: My readers are eager. They are pushing for more. They are not taking interesting childhood for an answer. Can you expatiate on that?
Zenobia: 😀Okay I had a strong religious and educational background, oh yes, I am a proud old girl of Ahantaman Girls Senior High School. I am an oil city girl. “Asey na ese ebadze, ᴐrekᴐdo a? I was actually pampered. ***Laughs***

Zenobia: ***Laughs*** I’m not, I’m 3rd out of 4 kids. But daddy’s favorite
MBA: Then you are a “Dadaba”. Haha. Let me put you on the spot. Tell us any health-related issues relating to the use of make up?
Zenobia: Actually, wrong application of stuff such as eye shadow or lashes can harm the eye or fake product can spoil the face.
MBA: Spoil in what sense. What health complications are we talking about here.?
Zenobia: Eye infections like pink eye, stamp infection, acne and rosacea
MBA: We learning here. So, should one require education before applying makeup? Or it’s just for anyone. A follow up question is who is supposed to use make up.?
Zenobia: Yeah, it’s advisable to be educated on it before using some products and anybody can apply makeup if she isn’t allergic to certain things
MBA: How would one know of any complications with make up when she hasn’t tried any before. Is there any tests makeup artists do on their clients or questions they ask them before serving them?
Zenobia: First and foremost, one must read about the product before use. Some products are for all skin types so we check your compatibility with the product. If not we we use ours which matches your skin color and devoid of any complications. With the help of face primers we should be good to go.

MBA: Well noted. Then UCC students should watch out for something new and great this semester. What your opinion in the recent shuffle of the ministers by His Excellency President Akuffo Addo?
Zenobia: Well I’ve not really paid attention to the matter but what I think is the president wants to establish clarity and a bias free system and also prevent corruption and prejudice
MBA: Rapping up. What message do you have for startups out there?
Zenobia: It’s not easy but they should focus on the price and they’ll be good
MBA: What price?
Zenobia: What they want to achieve, not money even though it’s important.
MBA: By your candid opinion, what do you think about 21st century ladies and make up?
Zenobia: It has improved but there’s more to come from the look of things.
MBA: Is that all you can say? Another school of thought says is being abused and used wrongly. Do you agree?
Zenobia: The purpose of makeup from my point of view is the same as the purpose of wearing clothes. You see that people that wear makeup can change their appearance (to look older, younger). Purpose of makeup is tightly connected with the ability of people to imagine things. I also think makeup is only abused if it’s rather making a negative impression than the intended purpose not to talk about the health aspects such as skin defects.
MBA: Thanks for your time Zenobia. Was great having you on #themeetbraamuahshow.
Zenobia: The pleasure is all mine Bra. Amuah
