Inna Modja: First, it is a lot of pressure (laughs). No, seriously, I think I represent most modern working woman. I see myself as a « working-girl » that is good about yourself and that’s why I’m beautiful.
FP: You are using wigs and weaves, what do you say to those who reproach you an adversarial attitude in your approach to natural woman?
IM: I think people tend to forget that I am a face or representation in one of my clips. And it’s not always me. Yes, I put a wig when I’m on tour because it’s convenient and I have neither the time nor the energy to sit down and take care of my hair. I’m not ashamed either to weaving, I assume the same. It’s my head and I can do what I want.
FP: What would you say to women who read World Women in Plural on a subject dear to your heart ?
IM: I tell them to first be aware of their value, to believe in it and not sell out. They must meet before they respect others. Women have so much to give: we are women, mothers, wives, workers. So many facets that add to our value.
