Hi readers, Halima was one of 10 celebrities (Waje, Empress Ijama, Kenny Bankole and more) that strutted the runway at my event and awards ceremony, The Green Ball/Icon Awards. She was awesome, I was very impressed by her ability to appear very patient in the face of frustrations that come with organizing such big ceremonies. Join me in wishing her the best in her upcoming projects and career.
