#BC Man Crush: Getting To Know Mawuli Gavor

As any of you who live here will know, we have had a crap summer in the UK this year (what's new?), and with the dearth of hot guys to look at (i.e. BC Man Crushes), summer has not only been dark and dull... but oh so cold! *brrrrrrr*. Then, like a ray of sunshine piercing through those dark clouds came my latest and long overdue BC Man Crush! Not only has he warmed my heart with his smile and obvious good looks, he truly warmed my soul when he was not only gracious enough to spare me some time out of his busy schedule, but also turned out to be a super nice guy! HOT and humble???! This must mean that Big Foot, Nessie (the Loch Ness monster) and the tooth fairy might all actually exist after all.. lol!

Mawuli is a Ghanian public figure/TV personality. He started modelling in New York at the age of 19 years old whilst he was in the USA studying a degree in Finance Management (yuuuup, brains too!). Upon successful completion of his studies, he left the US and returned to Ghana, where he soon started working as an accountant. Not too long after, the 6"2 beauty became the brand ambassador for Martini in Ghana & Nigeria.

As a successful and sought after model, it did not take too long before Mawuli quit his job as an accountant in order to focus on his career in entertainment, specifically TV and movies.

With a number of movies already under his belt ('Devil In The Detail', 'I Do', 'A Place Called Happy') Mawuli currently hosts two popular Ghanian TV shows: 30 Minutz Live & MTN Hitmaker.

During my very brief getting to know you chit chat with Mawuli, there were a few interesting points that he made about women:


Anthonia: What attracts you most to a woman?

Mawuli: The ability to hold a decent conversation. There are a lot of beautiful women out there, but for me the most important thing is that we can have an engaging conversation.

Anthonia: What do you dislike most about a woman?

Mawuli: Spending too much time on make-up!

Antthonia: What are your thoughts on black beauty and this issue of complexion?

Mawuli: Black women are beautiful irrespective of their shade. Perhaps lighter skinned women may appear to have an advantage because they are luminous, but that takes nothing away from beautiful darker skinned women. If you've got it, you've got it regardless of your complexion.'

Anthonia: What positive message would you give to young black girls/women on black beauty?

Mawuli: It doesn't matter what people think of you, just be who you want to be. Don't let anyone define you!


Personally, I found it very refreshing to speak to a guy who appears to care more about what is on the inside than what is on the outside. Not to say that we ladies shouldn't take care of ourselves and look good, but its just nice to know that there are guys out there who would like to spend more time having an interesting conversation with us than appreciating the artwork on our faces. Note to self: reduce the length of my makeovers from 1 hour to 15 minutes!!! Lol! Kiddin!

A few very random facts about Mawuli and then more yummy pics:
  • Favourite place in the world: Cape Town
  • Sun or snow: Sun (D'uh Anthonia,,,, he said Cape Town!.... As in AFRICA,,, sunny?!!)
  • Tea or Coffee: Tea

DAYUM!! Okay so I need a carpenter right now! HELP A SISTA OUT MAWULI!

I see you....
Now I'm done looking at these pics I think Ill have one of whatever it is that you are having! Sheesh!
I would just like to take this opportunity to say a huge thanks to Mawuli. You were and are a true gent and I hope that your star continues to rise into the stratosphere.

Thanks for reading...

Stay confident and beautiful
