Modelling shoots lined-up ... Moe Makaya
 
RELATED STORIES

STEP aside girls, smouldering lingerie model Moe Makaya is here – and ready to tackle 2016 at full force.

But unlike other Instagram sensations, she's using her brains to grab the spotlight.

Moe went to Staffordshire University, where she obtained a degree in accounting, so if her amazing figure doesn't make her famous she can fall back on her numerical figures.

Moe, 23, may only have 8,500 followers on Instrgram at the moment – but is now hoping to take the social media sharing site by storm.

And a set of smoking hot shots from a photoshoot for Ann Summers last year could be the breakthrough for her.

Moe told the Daily Star Online: "I think a lot about the pictures I put on Instagram, they are not just random ones or stupid selfies.

"I think of myself as a brand and I have to think about what I want the world to see," she said.

Yet unlike many, Moe is hoping to combine her glamour modelling with a career as a rapper.

She has a busy year ahead: "I have a few modelling shoots lined up and plan on going to the US in the summer to do some modelling work.

"I am also working on new music and will be releasing a few videos in the next two months.

"I will be travelling to Nigeria in June to do some acting and in talk with Nollywood directors," she added.

Last year, she brought out her second single, Fresh, which has echoes of Nikki Minaj and Lil' Kim, and she starred in the video.

She also caused a stir in a controversial girl-on-girl music video, Sex You Link up TV with four other sexy female artists.

Moe, who does not have an agent, also featured in a video for rapper Reks with her friend Evangelina Tsadiosou but she wants to be a star in her own right.

Some of the comments questioned the sexuality of her and her co-stars but Moe said the 30,000 views on the video gave her a big buzz. 

But she wants to be a star in her own right and says: "My musical role model is Lil' Kim while Naomi Campbell is the person I most admire in modelling. If I could a career half as successful as either of them I'd be so happy."

Moe – whose family is from Zimbabwe – is single but has no intention of dating a celebrity just to get famous.

And she says she wants to be a success because of her own talents.
