You don’t just come across a Nigerian actress on a magazine with international acclaim such as Vogue. Guess what, one of Nigeria’s finest actresses, Adesua Etomi Wellington, is on the cover of the latest Vogue magazine.
She makes the cover of the April issue of the magazine titled the “Global Issue.” She took to Instagram to share pictures and snippets of the magazine cover as soon as it was released by Vogue. The magazine features 14 stars from 14 countries “who know no limits.” Each woman has a spread in the magazine where they are interviewed about their work and personal lives.

In the magazine, Adesuwa, popularly referred to as “Susu,” is dubbed a third culture kid who can hardly walk the streets without being mobbed. It gets worse when she’s with her celebrity hubby, Banky W. Four of the stars were chosen to cover the magazine, Adesua from Nigeria, Donna Bae from South Korea, Golshifteh Farahani from Iran, and Elizabeth Debicki from Australia.
