Once featured in Essence magazine in a list of top 10 beautiful women who would inspire you to shave your head, Hamamat Montia is a model and entrepreneur who hails from the northern part of the Republic of Ghana – Tamale. Hamamat is definitely a woman who inspires! The former Miss Malika Queen grew up in the village of Bolgatanga and was raised by a strong business oriented family whose main produce was Shea butter.
At the age of 17 after winning a beauty pageant, Hamamat Montia’s ideology changed. She knew that she was capable of achieving anything she set her mind on and this first step moulded the idea of “the global African ambassador” she’s now referred to as.
Using her new found fame and platform, Hamamat began to enlighten and tackle crucial issues around her community, while still posing for photo shoots and editorial spreads. She was always aware of the power of the media/social media platforms through which she has thus far inspired and educated a lot of people asides from her non-media outreach.
A mother to two beautiful daughters, Hamamat never forgot where she came from as she went back to re-brand her family’s Shea Butter business, taking it to the global market. Her luscious and lovely skin gives off a glow that shines so bright and this is enough evidence if you needed to know the wonders of Shea Butter. From modelling, which she still does on the side, to owning a successful beauty business, Hamamat Montia is one young African woman to watch out for.
