Read excerpt from the Interview with Glamsquad Magazine Below:

Tell us about yourself.

My name is Kingsley Okoye Rex. I am a film maker, fashion designer and stylist from Anambra state who lives in Lagos, Nigeria. I am a graduate of Computer science from the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka.

Why did you decide to dump Computer Science for Costume design, styling, Fashion Designer, casting and producing?

“Dump” isn’t really the word. Computer Science isn’t my thing. The certificate is just a knowledge that gives me an edge over my competitors though. I applied for Computer Science, but found myself studying Mathematics…. I had thought that computer science was practical and pressing computers. LOL. I just wanted to pass and make my parents proud. Filmmaking was actually my first love, then Styling came in. It’s something I love doing. Styling, casting, costuming and everything about filmmaking is fun for me. I honestly don’t have any love for Computer Science, all the mathematics and programming in it. I am comfortable and thriving in the entertainment industry. Film and fashion is life to me.
