How were you discovered?

I was discovered through a local sports radio station in Denver. They were looking for promotional models. I entered a contest and was selected.

What inspired you to pursue modeling? And what obstacles have you dealt with since you began?

I’ve always wanted to model, but it was difficult because there was one category of modeling which was high fashion modeling. For High Fashion Modeling, you have to be both tall and very lean. So I never really pursued it. Then later down the line I began to see models with curves getting lead roles in music videos, covers in magazines, and I though maybe I can do this.  An obstacle that I have to deal with is making sure that I am in shape. People think that just because you have a big butt, or a large chest that you can do urban glamor modeling. That is NOT true. You still have to be in shape. It’s hard work!

You have a gorgeous face and an outstanding figure, where do your curves and features come from and how do you stay in shape?

Thank you! My curves come from my mother’s side of the family. All of the women are very voluptuous and curvy. My features are a cross between my African American and Hispanic background. I stay in shape by working out 4-5 days a week. I do a lot of running/cardio and weight training. I also try to watch what I eat.

Which of your features attract the most attention?

That’s a tough one, but I get more comments about my smile than any other physical feature.

What kind of shoots/work do you enjoy the most?

I enjoy photo shoots outdoors with a theme. I love the outdoors because nothing captures true beauty like natural light.

Your popularity is spreading can you tell us some of your credits to date?

Along with several online features

You are managed by Stallion Management, Elke The Stallion’s company, what’s it like to be a part of her stable of models?

It has been fantastic! I have nothing but love for all of the Stallion Models. We’re like a  family. Elke is a legend in this industry. She is a a very intelligent business woman and I am so happy to have someone like her in my corner. She has taught me so much!

Do you have any tattoos or piercings? If so what do your tattoos mean?

Yes I do I have a few piercings and 3 tattoos. One of my tattoo is my name. the others are just designs. Looking to get one more!

Models are taught to exude confidence and composure, but have you ever been afraid or nervous before a shoot?

Sometimes before a shoot I may get a little nervous especially if I am working with a new photographer. However as soon as I step in from of that camera, it all just goes away. I’m like a light switch.

People would be surprised to know that __________?

I have a tiny voice.

What advice can you offer to a young lady looking to follow in your footsteps?

I would say you have to have a plan. Figure out what exactly you are trying to accomplish in this business in the long run. Never forget that this is a business, so I suggest taking some time to learn as much as you can about it.

You’ve got front row tickets to see your favorite artist. Who is it and why?

Another tough question… I would love to see Tre Songz, Donnell Jones, or Raheem  DeVaughn

Your favorite getaway spot?

I LOVE Costa Rica!

How does Hip Hop music impact your daily life and your work? Whats your favorite song of the moment?

I feel that Urban Glamor modeling and Hip Hop go Hand in Hand. This industry was built on Hip Hop. My favorite Hip Hop song of the moment is “Fancy” By Drake f/T.I.  and Swizz Beatz

What are your turnons?

Confidence, a beautiful smile, a great sense of humor, intelligence, and spirituality.  Also being active (working out, playing recreational sports etc) and has strong family values. All Major turnons!

What are your turnoffs?

I can not stand rudeness. I am turned off by liars, jealousy and insecurity, body odor and bad breath.

What’s the craziest thing a fan has done to get your attention?

It’s pretty gross so I’d rather not say! LOL

Who have you enjoyed working with the most? And name someone you would love to work with?

I can not just pin point one person so I’ll name a few. I always enjoy working with James Rich, Nureign, Da RealSafado,and Torriam. Wow and there are so many more. A few people I would love to work with  are Facet Studios, Del Anthony,  Slick Force, and Mya Guez.

I’ve noticed that modeling makes many ladies very image conscious, how do you maintain your confidence through it all?

The key to my confidence is that I truly know who I am.  I also  surround myself with positive and honest people that have my best interest at heart. That makes all the difference in the world.

What should we expect to see you doing in the near future?

I will be doing more magazine features, some DVD projects, hosting events across the country, and much much more! The sky is the limit! :o)

Any parting words or people you would like to thank?

I would first like to thank Kush DVD for taking the time to feature me. It truly means a lot! I would also like to thank my fans for being so supportive. There is so much more to come!

“Getting into the industry I actually wanted no parts of the “video world” reason being is I didn’t want to be known as a “video Vixen”, however thinking  about it further I decided that I would only do leading lady roles.”

You have proven to be more than just a model, please tell our readers about some of your other activities.

I co-host a radio show every Tues 8-10 with Grind Season radio, I am currently holding casting calls looking for models for my modeling company, I am coming out with my clothing line in which I sketch and sew myself, I just put up a blog you can catch that on www.oliviasky.com, and am currently in talks about my own television show.

How were you discovered?

My ex management company, Versatile Inc introduced me to DJ Kay Slay at Jazzie Belle’s calendar release party. I was then featured in Straight Stuntin issue #12 and it took off from there.

What inspired you to pursue modeling?

My clothing line. I started doing this before the modeling and used to hold my own fashion show’s. I then became a model on the runway with Queens Elite and loved the excitement. I felt it was meant for me to be in this industry.

You have an outstanding hourglass figure, where do the curves come from and how do you stay in shape?

Thank you, I get it from my mama lol all the woman are originally shaped like this in my family. I don’t do anything to keep it, I eat what I want whenever I want and if I gain weight I gain it in the right places. THANK U MOMMY!!!

Tell us the best compliment or pick-up line you’ve heard?

Oh I cant think of one……probably because most of them are pretty lame lol.

What kind of shoots/work do you enjoy the most?

I enjoy the shoots that require us to fly to our location, kind of like a mini vacation for me. I also enjoy the shoots where they have a styling team. I like to see what they have in store for me.

What are some of your credits?

I have been featured in Kay Slay’s Straight Stuntin issue 12 & was on the cover of #13, Smooth girl magazine which will hit stands in October, Cover of Mafia (September Issue), An Exotic Risqué two year calendar coming this December that Im also on the cover of, Asis magazine soon to come out, Sosh B & Grafh video, Grind Season radio hosting, and was interviewed on Serius xm radio, as well as the Star n Buc wild show on Vlad TV, I also host a slew of parties for both celebrities and the reg’s.

Tell us some of your role models and people you admire or would like to emulate.

I truly admire Kimora Lee Simmons; she started out modeling and ended up an entrepreneur all while holding a family down. This proves to me I can do more than one thing in my career and be successful at it.

Do you have any tattoos or piercings?

Yes I do, I have 12 butterflies flying around my waist, and a big rose on my right shoulder blade. I had three piercing but decided to get rid of the tongue (too many people were getting it) so now I only have a navel and lip ring, want another but I’m nervous about this one, if you know what I mean lol.

Your beauty can easily be intimidating, but have you ever been afraid/nervous before a shoot?

Never, I am a very confident person and very bubbly so I’m always ready for the camera.

People would be surprised to know that ___________?

I can sing. I have a really good voice and came from a family of singer’s. My aunt made it big at one point, not sure if you know her but her name is Robin S. She had a single “show me love” in the 90’s, but I refuse to go down that road.

Your idea of relaxing is?

Staying home with a beer and watching the fight, Boxing or UFC’s. There’s nothing wrong with a nice hot candle lit bubble bath either.

You’ve got front row tickets to see your favorite artist. Who is it and why?

Oh goodness, as crazy as it may sound I really don’t have a favorite. I enjoy a plethora of music so I would want to sit in the audience of an all star show with various artists.

Your favorite getaway spot?

Vegas baby, I love it over there. I have a ball every time I go which is why I’m planning my New Years there this year.

How does Hip Hop music impact your daily life and your work? Whats your favorite     song of the moment?

Hip hop takes away my stress; I play it while I conduct my regular activities whether it is at home, in the office, or designing something from my line. I currently like T.I & Rick Ross “Pledge Allegiance To The Swag” & Fabolous “Lights Out”

What are your turn-ons and turnoffs?

I love a perfect gentleman you know open doors, pull my chair the little things count to me. I cant stand to feel suffocated, when people cut me off (while Im talking), or when guys try to tell me what to do. Oh and if your nails are dirty eewwww I wont even let you touch me.

24 hours to do whatever you want no matter the cost, tell us what you would do?

Wow at no cost to me? Hmmmm I would spend the whole 24 hours going shoe shopping. I know that was a corn – ball answer but what can I say I really LOVE SHOES. That would make me nut so hard lmao.

What’s the craziest thing a fan/admirer has done to get your attention?

I don’t know how this guy found out where I worked, but I was walking down the block and he jumped out his car and ran to his trunk, I thought he was gonna kill me he yelled my name out, and I started running the opposite way. He’s yelling please sign my book. I turned around and he’s running towards me with his copy of Straight Stuntin. It was cute but I was scared as hell.

Who have you enjoyed working with the most? And name someone you would love       to work with?

I enjoyed working with Kay Slay; the environment around him is very comfortable and calming. He’s all about his business and it just makes you want to work harder. I also enjoyed working with Sandy, C.E.O of Smooth Magazine and her whole team. We shot in Jamaica and we had a great time she really is a cool down to earth person. I would love to do a collaboration with Jazzie Belle, and Gloria Velez. I would also like to do more work with Frank Antonio, & my dream shoot would be with Photographer, Nigel Barker.

The most sensual shoot you’ve ever done and what made it so sexy.

Definitely the shoot with Smooth Magazine because of the location. We flew to Jamaica and stayed at the resort “Hedonism II” which is an all nude resort. It was pretty intense which made the shoot much more interesting and sensual.

What should we expect to see you doing in the near future?

Well you will definitely see me in more magazines. My clothing line D.E.A.D.   S.E.R.I.U.S DIVA’S as well as my modeling company. I come up with new things all the time so be on the look out. I won’t be going anywhere anytime soon.

Any parting words or people you would like to thank?

I thank you guys for having me. I would like to thank Versatile Inc, Queens Elite, DJ Kay Slay, John Perry, Dead Serius Entertainment, Grind Season, and Mr. Alonso for his words of encouragement, if it wasn’t for him I wouldn’t have focused on the projects I am now focusing on, and last but definitely not least my personal assistant Stephanie Cox, she’s the best assistant anyone could have. Thank you to all my fans you are all so sweet and dedicated. Look out for my clothing line D.E.A.D. S.E.R.I..U.S DIVA’S.  Look out folks, my journey has just begun.

Your heritage traces back to Rwanda, a country well documented for the genocide that took place there, how close to you personally do these issues resonate?

The genocide in Rwanda (1994) is definitely something that is still very close to me and is a part of me in many ways.  My family and I were in Rwanda during that time, and fled to seek refuge along with other Rwandans.  Witnessing, first hand, the violence, the killings, and how inhumane people can be, and also coming from a well off and comfortable lifestyle and, in an instant, finding myself living in a refugee camp for months, outside or in tents in Zaire, and eventually in poverty that seemed never ending in Kenya and Tanzania, is without a doubt something that has helped shape the person I am today.  An experience like that is definitely bound to take a toll on someone.  However, I believe it is how you rise above tragedies in life, no matter how big or small, that really matters; how you choose to let it affect the rest of your life, positively or negatively.  And in my case, being that I have faced the brutality of death, I have become relentless and hungry for so much more in life, and am motivated to do the most that I can and be the best that I can be.

Tell us about how your career in the entertainment industry began and what led to your change in direction?

I started performing, Rwandese traditional dance, in Kenya at the age of six, along with my older sister.  It was another way to help our family get by in Kenya, for we would get compensated in food (rice, beans, flour, etc) to take home to our families. We would perform for ‘rich’ and ‘important’ people, in competitions, concerts, etc.  After a while, being one of the youngest dancers, I was featured on the front page of a popular magazine in Kenya.  I loved entertainment from a young age, and moving to Ohio in 1999, I automatically fell into Hip Hop Dance, which led to attending showcases and performing, and eventually training for on camera performance at 16. I fell in love with Broadcasting.  As a sophomore, I decided to move to NYC right after graduating high school to pursue my dreams.  I did just that, with $28 and two suitcases. Falling into doing music videos, accidentally, almost, I realize that it really wasn’t for me, and I was going in a direction that I really had no passion for.  I did not want to be known for my looks. So I focused more on broadcasting again, attaining my radio show, hosting live events, interviews, etc. Jim Jones and the Byrdgang and 730 Dips family really helped me a great deal when I needed it the most during that time.

You are now the host of your own radio show, how did this come together and tell us more about the show…

I remember my father sent me a text message asking me what I was doing here, (in NY), and I automatically responded, “I’m going to get a Radio Show.” I was a bit skeptical as to whether or not I was ready, or if I would be accepted by people as a host, but at that moment, after the text message, I decided to go for it. I had visited the DTF Radio Station before and loved the people and the energy, and could see myself there.  With the help of many of my supporters and friends who actually campaigned for me to land a slot on DTF Radio in the next three days, and in that time, developing what i wanted my show to be about, I finally had meeting at the station and was granted a show!  The Josi Marie Show is a fun filled open forum talk show that discusses hot topics and issues that we face on a daily basis.  I also feature Models and Artists on the show for exclusive interviews.  The show is diverse and fresh from week to week and has something for everyone. I am very excited about the growth of the show and am working with some very creative young people on the show who make it even more unique!

Recently you organized the Ball With Vixens charity basketball game, tell us how it all came together and what your goals were?

Like a lot of my ideas, I came up with the idea while in bed!  Being that I had access to music video and urban models, i had always wanted to brin them together and do something fun! I wanted to promote unity in young women, and doing so and also helping raise awareness for an organization that helped other women, Women-In-Need.org seemed like too good of an idea to let die off.   I wanted these models , and young women overall, to be seen in a different light! I detest stereotypes, and a lot of the Urban models are stereotyped for many negative things. For them to be so actively involved and dedicated in the Ball With Vixens Charity Game, I believe so many people gained more respect for them, and young girls who watch way watch the ladies can see that there are other ‘cool’ things to be involved in, and that it was ‘cool’ to get involved in their communities. It definitely was not easy, but with the help and support of Jim Jones, Scott Furgeson, Eve Lora, Chris Rucker, the models, media, staff for the game, sponsors and supporters, the end result was well worth the hard work!

What does the future hold for the Ball With Vixens movement, any events or games in the coming future?

Many of the girls definitely have requested that we continue with the new found movement! During the preparation for the game, we built some lifelong friendships an support groups within he Ball With Vixens family.  will definitely be more Ball With Vixens games and events in the future!  I would like to do a game each summer for Charity.  Judging from the way people responded to it, it is bound to get bigger and bigger each year! I am very excited about the growth that this movement will have, and how it will positively affect women and our communities!

You have championed for charitable causes and developed a network for ladies in the industry to communicate and share ideas and experiences, was this always your intention?

Giving back to the needy has always been something that was important to me. While in Africa, although we lived in poverty, I was still able to attend private schools because people helped us.  And in moving to America, with the help of many good Samaritans, I was fortunate enough to continue with a Catholic private school education that promoted charitable work.  Since I was not killed in the genocide, and survived so many near death experiences, and living in both extremely rich and extremely poor conditions, I believe I have been blessed with the life I have now for a purpose. Since someone helped me, it is only right that I help others as much as I can.  It just so happened to be that I had the network of ladies from the days when I was involved in music videos, and some of them were as passionate about giving back as I was.

How long did it take for you to be taken seriously as a host/personality?

That is a question that I had never really thought about much.  I was nervous at first about being a host/personality, but then I figured, the best way to be accepted as a host or personality overall, is to be myself.  I believe that as I continue to grow as a personality, and as I get more and more comfortable with myself as I develop into a more wholesome woman, people will decide for themselves whether or not to take me seriously.  The thing is, I take myself seriously along with everything that I do, so I feel that if that is the energy I am releasing in the universe, I will get the same back.  I am also aware of the fact that not everyone will take you seriously, but that is also alright with me; I respect everyone’s stance.

What were some of the obstacles you overcame as you transitioned to your current status?

I went through a lot of challenges to be where I am today, and I still go through life’s challenges to this day.  Since I moved to New York City with basically no money and no place to really call home if I was not living on campus at Long Island University, one can only imagine the things I allowed myself to go through only because I know that with hard work and sacrifice, my future will be bright. There was actually a time where I was virtually homeless in NYC, in the summer of 2009, and I could only afford to eat a two dollar tuna sandwich with mayo from the nearby corner store each day to survive.  I could have easily went back to Ohio to my family and lived comfortably, but my relentless spirit made me stay because, I would ask myself, “What is success without struggle?”  I had started something, and I was going to finish it successfully by any means, so I stayed.  There are a lot more stories, but those are for another time, and another day.  I look at obstacles as challenges, and man!, do I like a challenge! I m prepared for more to come, for I am aiming higher and am not complacent with my current status.

Tell us some of your long term goals….

I have so many, I wish I had 7 lifetimes! I do want to end up in television! I have always admired Oprah and her work, an her charities.  I definitely see myself doing similar things.  I want to help as many people as I can, and eventually help the people in Rwanda, especially the young women there.  I know I am destined for great things, and I have been given the tools to get to where I need to be.  When the time is right, I will take the necessary steps and risks that I need to take.  I ultimately want to leave this world a little better than I found it.

People would be surprised to know that ___________?

I do not watch television much. I don’t even own one! I have an addiction to reading, that if I go for too long without a book, I’ll fall into slight episode of depression, I think!  Also, I do not have my ears pierced, no tattoos, and am terribly afraid of needles and animals besides fish that are in a fish tank! I passionately hate bananas and anything that is flavored with it, looks or smells like it!

Your idea of relaxing is?

My idea of relaxing is actually being with my family in Ohio.  I don’t get to do that much, and when I am there, I am not thinking about work or the “Josi Marie” brand at that time.  I am just Josiane, the Rwandan daughter, sister, niece, and aunt.

You’ve got front row tickets to see your favorite artist. Who is it and why?

I listen to ALL types of music, and love a large variety of artists from Pink, Linkin Park, Jim Jones, Chrisette Michele, Wyclef, and Beyonce, so this is a very hard question.  I can simply say that I have yet to get over the fact that Michael Jackson (RIP) is no longer with us, and I have yet to love an entertainer as much as I loved him! I listened to him since Africa, and he would have had to be the one!

Your favorite getaway spot?

Anywhere by the water is perfect for me! I want to go back to Mombasa to the Indian Ocean! I have never seen anything as beautiful as that!

Who have you enjoyed working with the most? And name someone you would love to work with?

I enjoy, mostly, working with Jim Jones on various projects. He is an activist in his own way and really gives back to the community, which is something to applaud!  I like working with people who push me to work harder, and he does just that! I also enjoyed working with all the  beautiful ladies from Ball With Vixens! They inspired me to never give up! I want to work with Oprah so badly! …and I will.

What should we expect to see you doing in the near future?

I am actually working on a blanket drive for the homeless, being that the winter is coming and it pains me more than anything to see them on the streets! Lots of people will be involved in that! Also, The Josi Marie Show is something to stay in tune with! It is on DTFRADIO.COM and can also be sen on http://www.youtube.com/JosiMarieTV.

Any parting words or people you would like to thank?

So many people to thank! Jim Jones, Jetlag Ash, Sen City, DTF Radio, My team at DTF Radio (I love you! Thanks for being HUNGRY!).
HardBodyTV, Kush DVD (Kush Boyz), Bryan Hicklin Photography, Nick Haze, and all the blog sites that feature my shows! A personal thanks
to my close friends who keep me level headed (Mugisha, Ashley, Crystal, Kwesi, Rachel, Knix, Josh). My Family, I love you.
