Here is what Abisola had to say about Chinonso Arubayi

Day four of the #makeupbyashabeepotraitchallenge is none other than the lady with the enchanting smile, I introduce @chinonsoarubayi I’ll like to describe her as ‘a warrior with a calm face’. Follow closely, you’ll soon find out why.

Chinonso was nominated for the challenge by one of my followers and I was grateful she accepted the nomination. I came across Chinonso’s story a while ago and I am happy to see her mega growth even after a serious storm that would leave many shattered for life.
Chinonso is a multi-talented TV personality and beauty entrepreneur particularly known for unearthing a food resource program. This is something that probably sounds cliché but Chinonso has changed the status quo, bringing in a renewed creativity into the market space. She naturally keeps you glued to your TV screens being the host of the Film House TV show and Urban Kitchen.

She started presenting in her university days at Nnamdi Azikiwe University (Unizik) where she was a presenter on the campus FM and the state radio station. The sudden loss of her husband celebrated Gospel sensation @ericarubayi was a low point in her life.
I am inspired by how she has found the strength to carry on turn her life into a beautiful testimony of God’s grace. It is rare to see women rise from a thing like that so gracefully, shine and inspire others to keep going regardless of whatever life throws at them. When life brings storms, we are always told to wait for the storm to pass but I’ve learnt from Chinonso that you can always dance in the rain. Chinonso is a great example of you really have no excuse to not be your best in the one shot you have at life. She is a role model for people who want to live purposeful lives regardless of whatever they have been through. She is heavily grinding and killing it as a highly sought after freelance presenter with a killer smile to do the role justice. She is also the CEO of Lookartme Beauty Line, to crown it all she has an incredibly sweet irresistible spirit and an amazing personality. She is what you can summarize as good energy.

Thank you Chinonso for responding to our call graciously and promptly and #shesallthat
