ADAORA

"I'm going with the one name thing. I love the significance of my name. It means first daughter of the people. My last name is Akubilo. That means If you have money, you'll have enemies. Pretty much the Nigerian version of Mo' Money, Mo' Problems. I'm channeling Biggie Smalls."

Adaora, who was born in Connecticut but lived in Enugu, Nigeria between the ages of 10 and 16, had never done a lingerie or swimsuit shoot before SI.
