All About Spake Da Model
Tell me about Spake Da Model?
Well, I am more than just a Model. I am an all around entertainer. There are a lot of sides to me that world hasn’t seen yet… But it’s coming VERY SOON!
Most of all SpakeDaModel is a “Kuntry Boi” from Charlotte NC, that’s been through many trials and tribulations just like everybody else and just trying to get it right and live everyday in my passion!
What made you want to become a model?
Honestly, my Mother… I always was involved in entertainment somehow growing up, but she put the bug in my ear back in 2004 and I didn’t really take advantage of the opportunity. In 2011 it came back around and I fell in love with it and been going hard ever since!
How do you feel men are perceived in the industry? Do you feel you get the same opportunities as women in this business?
I feel as if we are perceived in a way I don’t think fits us all.
We absolutely do not get the same opportunities that women receive but I plan on taking care of both those minor setbacks!
What makes you a “Hunk”?
Lol, I can’t take credit for any of this. This is God given!
Who would you like to work with in the future?
Wow, it’s a lot of people but of all I have to work with Tyra Banks!
What is your ultimate career goal?
To be a Brand Ambassador for an Internationally known clothing brand!
Tell your fans something about you many would not know?
I am a very shy person, but I been working on that. Lol!
What genre of music do you prefer and why?
I am a R&B head, I grew up in a house that all you heard was Teddy P, Luther Vandross, Sam Cook, James Brown etc. My brother was a singer as well so it’s just in me. It’s feel good music and personally I would rather “feel good’ all day!
Last but not least, HYPE wants to know…What’s your CRAZIEST “Where they do that at?!” moment…
Lol, it was in my own city. Seen a dude in a ol skool whip with no doors, no paint job with the treble on the radio all the way turned up and had the nerve to have 22 inch rims… Smh all I could say was “My people” lol!
