See chats from interview after the cut.

 The night before, someone had told me that Zahra had some people sent out of aboutique.
 Zahra clarified that she was not
even in Nigeria at the time the event
supposedly occurred. “I was in Guildford
when I heard all these things coming
through and I was surprised. I was in
Selfridge  when someone stopped me to
ask if the story was true- I was not there.
 I was in my sitting room in Guildford”
With that out of the way, we got straight
into the interview.

ML: So, how would you describe yourself?

Zahra: That’s a very difficult question. Whenever
people ask me to describe myself, I say I am
just normal. I try to be nice; I am an easy
going person.
ML: I see that you and an ambassador for a
charity organisation, how did that happen?

Zahra: After uni, I was trying to settle down and my
mom would have meetings with people. I
was always interested in charity work. I kept
saying that if anyone needed my help, they
could just let me know since I am not doing
much at the moment. And Kiki, who is the
founder of ACE, gave my mom’s friend a
good presentation of what they do at ACE.
So she said, “Oh Zahra I have someone for
you, she could just come and give you a
presentation too.” Right after the
presentation, I was impressed so I decided
to volunteer for one of their outreaches and
after that she asked me to be their
ambassador and I felt why not.

ML: What are some of the things you spend
time doing?

Zahra: I read a lot of different things and
sometimes books that will help me relate
with people better because I have to interact
with a lot more people now.
Question: Who inspires you and what motivates you?
Zahra: My mom inspires me. Whenever she is
ready to do something, (she is such a fiery
woman) she just gets up and gets it done
and it is always for a good cause. Even my
interest in charity work, I know it’s
something I get from her. Since we were
kids, she encouraged us to give to the less
privileged and we enjoyed doing that. And..

Tip: My motivation is our position. We know that
we are here to help Nigerians, it is not about
us and even way before getting into this
position, the less privileged have always
been my motivation.

Question: A while ago, a fake twitter account was
created to appear to be you and many
people believed it was you. The account
made some controversial statements. How
do you feel about someone impersonating
you online?

Zahra:I don’t feel good at all because the first
question that comes to your mind is ‘why
would someone want to be me?’ And why
would you want to taint someone’s image? I
knew many people would be tricked into
thinking it was me, that bothered me and
when the fake controversial comments
came out about me talking about a
president, I was hurt because this wasn’t an
insult to my family only, it was to the whole
of Nigeria because it is just like saying
members of the first family don’t have a
proper upbringing. Why would I insult a
president? Why would I insult any person in
general? It’s just not right. So I asked them
to come up with that press release because
that was the only way it would get out to
people as soon as possible. That was not
me and I wouldn’t do such a thing.

ML: How old are you now?
ZB: Are you sure you wanna know?
ML: yes!
ZB: you wanna guess first?
ML: Let me see, you just finished uni, so
ZB: Yes! Haha!
ML: I am sooo good at guessing ages!

ML: In what way has your life changed since
your father became president?

It hasn’t changed so much, just that we are
restricted from doing so many thing
because of security precautions and we see
our dad less, that has really changed!
Changing where you live, that’s the biggest
change. Moving from a flat in Guildford and
then moving out from our house in Kaduna
and Abuja then the way there are more
people around that you’re not familiar with.
So, having to be more diplomatic about so
many things.
Sometimes when you are thrust into the
spotlight, there are some relationship
changes. Some people pull back and just
stick to family.

ML:  Do you have the issue of
having to deal with a lot of people trying to
get closer to you?

ZM: It’s actually very hard to get to me ‘cause I
have been changing numbers so people
can’t really get me and the second thing is,
not too many people know me personally.
The problem comes up once in a while,
when people now want to be closer to you
but you just have to do what you have to

ML: Is there anything you want to say to young
Nigerians today?

Yes! Find out what your passion is and go
for it. You’re very elegant.

ML: What are your tips on being a lady?

ZM: That’s a tough one, I guess it is just part of
me and it is not something that I try to do.
The first thing is- understanding that you’re
a lady in the first place would make you do
certain things in certain ways. I value
tradition and when you’re a lady, you just
have to present yourself in a certain way. I
really admire the way Queens and
Princesses are. I even watch Downton
Abbey and admire that era.

ML: Before the 2015 Presidential elections,
Nigerians discovered your twitter and it blew
up. People found your pictures and they
were all over the blogs and social media.
What do you have to say bout that?

ZM: Some people thought I was the one who
gave the pictures out but I did not even
know it happened. I was in my room, just
before I went for yoga that evening and I got
messaged with a link to a blog so I looked
through it and I felt no one would care
about it so when I was through with my
yoga, I opened my phone and messages,
missed calls and so many followers on
twitter came through and I was wondering
what was happening. All my friends were
calling me to look at it. It was a crazy time
and it is something you don’t expect at all
and then right after it happened, my first
prayer was “Oh God, help me help people
with this fame that I have right now” so
that’s how I became an ambassador I
Soon after, you deleted your twitter

ML:Did it have anything to do with all
the attention?

ZM: Yes it did. I was getting too much attention
and naturally I do not like attention like that.
I would always try to quietly do my thing but
then I realized that anything I said was a
topic and that was exam period, there was a
lot of stress and I just didn’t want any of
that and obviously there were a lot of
comments –good and bad and so I was
just like maybe it’s time to step out of this
for some time.
ML: Do you ever see yourself in politics? Or do
you have other ambitions?

ZM:(laughs) no. Politics? I can’t. And I am still
working on any other ambition. I just want
to build up on how to help people; that is
the main thing for me. And actually, fashion.
I’m not into trendy fashion; I’m just into
dressing properly and looking good and
presentable most of the time.

ML: Do you have to deal with any negativity now,
because of your father’s position? And how
do you handle that?

ZM: I think there is
negativity but people try to conceal it so it is
not as difficult as if someone were to show
you openly.
It makes you doubt people sometimes and
if they are genuine but honestly from my
side, I just treat you like anyone else and
just try to be fair.

ML: So this is the last question, which so many
people want to know. Are you getting
(A lot of giggling takes place)

ZM: Eventually!
Maybe I have a potential.

It's a long interview.
What do you think about her?
