of course it's all subjective... and i don't necessarily think Rita is "goregeous" either, but... well, she does have *something*
there's something about her look that has "star" written all over it... maybe it's more her *style* than her natural looks, but she has that thing that if you saw her on the street and you didn't even know who she was, you would have the sense that she is someone you're supposed to know...
Doris... she just seems like "everyday" pretty to me. like a good-looking housewife.
not that there's anything wrong with that, of course...
Yemi Solade is one of the most down-to-earth subjects you can interview. He will tell you as it is, so I'm going to quote him from the interview linked above. Note the bold sections (and the date of the interview, last year):
Q: As a trained artiste, how do you feel working with untrained ones?
A: I always have problems working with the unskilled ones, but I admit that some of them are really good. They are raw talents, but they don’t have the power of articulation. Raw talent alone is not enough. Talented people should be able to articulate what they do. It does not just stop at being one clown or one babalawo (herbalist). You should be able to explain what you do. Most of the artistes in ANTP, because of their little or no education, cannot express themselves. This is a big problem and I don’t know what the association is doing about it.
