Karen Igho hardly needs an introduction, haven kept us glued to our TV screens in 2011, as she participated and finally won the reality show, Big Brother Africa.

Karen has stayed relevant since then, and has  joined the list of Nollywood stars, appearing in movies and one of Nigeria’s favourite sitcom, Tinsel.

She is also set to start her reality TV show.

I recently had a chat with Karen for Thisday style Magazine, Just thought to share with you my luvlies.
