Hennywiz – How are you doing today, Maliah?
Maliah – I’m doing lovely.
Hennywiz – First off, I would to like to Welcome you to the Daily dose..
Maliah – Thanks for having me
Hennywiz – Where are you from originally? What’s your ethnic background?
Maliah – I’m from LA (WEST SIDE!) and I’d like to say I’m Black. My father is Creole, but I’m just plain and simple.
Hennywiz – What are your measurements, btw? For the people that don’t already know?
Maliah – 34-27-45
Hennywiz – What or who inspired you to begin a modeling career?
Maliah – I was just going about life and people kept coming up to me, you know the routine. Especially being in LA. I finally decided to take some of the offers up, and one thing led to another and here I am.
Hennywiz – You’ve been featured in several magazines, which spread are you the most intrigued by?
Maliah – I love working with everyone, but the first King shoot was the most fun. It was my first time in NY too, and I went STRAIGHT to cover, no in the magazine first stuff at all, so it was a big deal to me.
Hennywiz – With all the shoots you’ve done so far, which ones have been your most memorable so far?
Maliah – I think shooting in Jamaica was probably the most memorable. I had a very large audience out on the beach for one of the final sets, and it was just a blast.
Hennywiz – I’ve read somewhere that you are exotic dancer, any truth to that? Maliah – Absolutely. I don’t know why people are not aware of that fact fully.
Hennywiz – What is your opinion of the exotic entertainment industry?
Maliah – It’s really just like everything else these days, saturated to the point that the quality and money is a little harder to find, but the best always rises to the occasion.
Hennywiz – What impact has modeling had on your personal life?
Maliah – I’ve had both good and bad experiences as with anything else. I’ve now moved to Houston and I have good people in my corner, so overall, especially at this point I’d say things are lovely.
Hennywiz – I know you done a commercial for Mandingo beverage, is acting a career path you are trying to pursue?
Maliah – I’d love to pursue acting, we’re working on things now to put me a little more on track. I’ll also be back in Jamaica in the spring, so people get ready for me!
Hennywiz– Overall, what has been your opinion of the modeling industry as a whole?
Maliah – See question 9, it’s basically a parallel. I’m so tired of every girl being a model. Everyone is a photographer/agent/manager/magazine/website these days. What happened to QUALITY? Hennywiz– Here at The Wiz’s daily dose we try our best to showcase best quality as possible; but I hear you tho!!
