World renowned model Naomi Campbell has shared a nude photo of herself taken in Kenya.

In the photo taken at an undisclosed desert location in Kenya, the 49-year-old actress and businesswoman is stark naked save for a bead around her waist while she revealed in the caption the shoot was for British Vogue magazine.

According to Campbell herself, this kind of nude photo shoot took her years to find confidence in doing.

“Growing up, I never felt at ease in my skin. At school, people would call me names like Olive Oyl or twigs, and I felt awkward and inadequate.

“It’s taken me a long time to feel right in my body- it’s something that has come with age, and has really only happened over the past few years,” she wrote in a she wrote in an article published on Tuesday.

Akothee reacts

Kenyan singer Akothee reacted to Campbell’s post, pointing out the double standards held by Kenyans.

According to Akothee, she would even be banned from setting foot in Kenya should she do a similar photo shoot.


“If I do this kind of photo shoot, my passport will be marked red, never to step into Kenya land again, even with all the debts they have they will forget that and make this a topic, they will mistake that waist chain for rituals.

“I need this photo shoot in two weeks it’s summer. Some of my fans will disown me publicly, but own me privately, some will call off the title role model but still have the screenshots doing rounds on Akothees clubs, and their screen savers.

“Now they are on your page praising, black beauty this world is not our home, sisi wapita njia,” she wrote.
