Miss Charismatic at the Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria (MBGN) 2013 and the founder of Miss Charismatic Nigeria pageant, Ronke Tiamiyu, says newdity is not all trashy if the intent has positive connotations. To her, there’s distasteful and tasteful nudity.
“newdity is a controversial topic these days as more women embrace their femininity and break from some of the older, more close-minded ideals of society,” she said.
“newdity for the sake of creating gossip to cause a stir and get people to notice you is really just trying to hide a lack of talent. newdity can be artistic though. It has to be tasteful and fit the scene. It must tell a story. It cannot be newdity just for the sake of newdity. There must be an artistic element to it. I also think a person embracing their body, whether their body is beautiful, skinny, fat, a little chubby, athletic, it doesn’t matter, its an important message.
“People must be comfortable in their own skin and embrace who they are and not judge themselves and their body by society’s standards. All of us are flawed and have imperfections, and that’s okay. You should love your body and if in doing so, this leads you to pose nvde or be nvde in a scene, then I applaud that person because it takes a great deal of confidence to do it.
It can send a great message to love who you are, the beautiful, imperfect you. Again, just so long as this is done artistically and not as a means to get noticed, then it’s just trashy,” she said.
Speaking about herself, the former beauty queen describes herself as a creative person who sees entertainment as a medium of expression.
“I am a creative person naturally and entertainment is the venue that I express myself, whether it’s through my beauty pageant, my clothing line, my blog, or even my personal modeling. I’m drawn to so many different parts of the industry that each expresses a different side of me. For example, those who know me as a beauty queen might be surprised by the writing I do on my blog, discussing news of Nigeria and the world,” she said.
