Kenyan model featured in T.I.’s reality show
Kenyan born model now based in the US, Jared Okeyo was featured on TI’s reality show called T.I & Tiny Show on VH1. The up-and-coming male fashion model is based in Atlanta, Georgia and got into modelling by chance. “I didn’t grow up talking or thinking, I was going to be a model. My family, friends and even strangers could repeatedly tell me on that I should model. I never took them seriously. I would politely thank them and move on. Till one day, I met this photographer while I was out clubbing. He invited me to his studio for a shoot and its been on since then,” Jared told Word Is via an email interview.
Two years later, Jared has made other appearances in various reality TV shows like the Real Housewives of Atlanta on Bravo TV. “On the shows I was playing the lead role as a model. I did an AKOO clothing line fashion show owned by rapper T.I. Besides this, I just did a Marcy’s and Sean John fashion show recently and I’m also working with supermodel Cynthia Bailey closely.
I had fun with the Real Housewives of Atlanta ladies, they love me and I love them back," he said.
