Fashion and Luxury magazine, House Of Maliq broke the internet (again) with one of the covers of the second edition of their January issue.
Now, it was not Tania Omotayo’s indisputable beauty that got people talking. Instead, it was the roach. Real cockroach on her shoulder!
My first reaction was to somehow, make myself believe that the cockroach was photo-shopped into the picture during editing… until I saw this video.
This is not the first time House of
aniMaliq has gotten really creative with animals, they were also in the news sometime last year for a cover in which Guinness Book Record Holder, Kaffy had a frightened hen in hand.
Let’s not talk about its striking resemblance with this Beat Magazine cover featuring Beyonce.
Who thought the day would come when animals would share cover pages with humans? People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) would definitely be proud of House Of
AniMaliq! Who knows, we might soon begin to see covers with just animals in the nearest future.
The brand went ahead to post this picture on Instagram as a form of explanation but I am yet to see the relationship between both covers.
Oh well, maybe my mind is not so great after all.
See more pictures including those of actress, Chioma Chukwuka-Akpotha (who also stars on the cover of the same second edition of January 2017 issue) in maxi dresses and bold makeup.
This picture (above) just makes me crave Banga soup!
While we look forward to the next creative, internet-breaking cover from House Of Maliq, let’s play a guess game. Which animal do you think will make an appearance next?
While Nikki and Nims think it might be a lizard, I think it would be interesting to see a well-fed rat.
Imagine a real lizard on the head instead of a faux lizard haircut!
