Young men want to date her for the fame and trappings that come with it but her celebrity mother will hear none of it; in this exclusive interview with Pulse magazine, Akothee’s daughter, Celly Rue Brown, speaks about being thrust into the limelight and the local celeb she has a crush on:

Pulse: You recently called your mother a bi**h in one of your Instagram posts…

Rue: (laughs) Yes I did. My post read: “bi**h, you’re making too much noise”. My mother and I are very close to an extent that to us that is not an offensive word. It’s more like calling her my friend. A blog, however, took it up and thought that I was being disrespectful but what they don’t know is that that is how my mother and I relate.

P: Do you think her celebrity status has helped you in your career?

R: I try to do my own thing and make the most out of it. She might be a celebrity but I believe that I am where I am due to my hard work and not because of who she is.

P: What is that one thing that we do not know about your mum?

R: She is actually a very strict woman. I think that is the reason why none of my siblings are dating. We do not have a house-help as many think. We do our own laundry as well as cook for ourselves. She is above all loving, caring and fun to be with.

P: How well would you describe yourself?

R: I am a petite, shy and an easy person to be around with. My government name is Celine Dion Rue Akello but most people know me as Rue. I am a second year student studying International Relations. I hope to one day become a diplomat.

P: Why diplomacy?

R: I like mingling and interacting with people and also the fact that I do not like working behind a desk while spending many hours in an office.

P: It is interesting that you say you like mingling while most people think you have a bit of an attitude...

R: Well, I do get that a lot. I'm actually an easy person to be around. Most people judge me from my face even before they get to interact with me.

P: Why did you pick modelling?

R: I started modelling last year immediately after clearing my high school education. I work with Toy Toy models, which is owned and run by Letoya Johnson. My journey in modelling has not been as smooth as many would assume.

P: How so?

R: Many agencies turned me down saying that I am too skinny and petite to be a model yet those are some of the qualifications one needs to be a model.

P:  Did you think you'd win the face of Nivea competition when you went into the competition?

R: It had never crossed my mind actually. My friend Salome nominated me for the competition. To my surprise, most people actually voted for me and by the end of the ...
