I didn't attend university because of my tribal marks - Model Adetutu Alabi

At the moment if there is one model that is probably the happiest person on earth, it has to Adetutu Alabi. Known for conspicuous tribal and her burning desire to work with American artiste, Rihanna
That desire might be nearer as then ever as Rihanna finally noticed the Nigerian model with prominent tribal marks as she replied her on Instagram by following her handle. 

Shortly after the model revealed that she would like to work for Rihanna, her tweet quickly went viral with people tagging Rihanna. This obviously worked as the international singing sensation is now one of her followers. Alabi took to Instagram to share the good news and expressed high hopes that Rihanna’s management would soon get in touch with her.

She further revealed that bullying due to her tribal marks discouraged her from going for university education.

She said , “I started modelling last year after I came out from my shell or hiding due to my tribal marks. The bullying started in my primary and secondary school days. Due to this, I learnt a skill instead of going to university. I was supposed to study law but I decided not to take the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination at all because I was scared of being bullied in the university. I believed that if I attended university, I might end up killing myself. Later, I had to ask my parents why they gave me these tribal marks and they told me it was because of our culture and to showcase my beauty.  I didn’t feature in any of my primary school pictures because of my tribal marks and even though I had friends, I was always like a fifth wheel in the group. An embarrassing day for me was when a client told me to always conceal my tribal marks anytime I came to work with her. She eventually told me that she couldn't work with me.”
