Almost 20 years ago, model Eva Mbabazi scandalized the country when she paraded in that infamous fishnet dress.  

The former Miss Tourism and Miss Uganda pageant contestant got Kampalans talking and gawking, when she paraded all with her modesty only salvaged by a black G-string at a high flying function attended by the likes of Mike Mukula, Sudhir Ruparelia and Bob Kabonero.

Now stationed in London Eva Mbabazi, now 45 might want to look away as her modelling daughter, Eva Apio writes her own sleazy chapter.

Hollywood was stunned recently when Mbabazi’s daughter Eva Apio, 18 shared loved up pictures of her in bed with Hollywood heartthrob, Michael Rainy Junior popularly known as Tariq. 

A budding star of Hollywood, actor Michael Rainey Jr, is popular for his recurring role in popular television series ‘Power.’ where he stars alongside Omari Hardwick, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, and Naturi Naughton. His net worth is estimated to be around $1.2m (Sh4.5b) 

Just like her mom, Eva Apio who turns 19 on July 1 2019, teased her followers over 100,000 followers on Instagram and Twitter before making the big reveal. 

Sources we spoke to reveal that they have been secretly dating for months before Apio confirmed their romance on Saturday with the sleazy pictures.

Before she released them, Apio, strutting in a two-piece sexy green bikini tweeted; “His favourite meal”.   This in quick succession followed by another posted from a luxury resort; ‘speaking a baecation into existence,’

Later, she posted pictures of as he snuggled up to her typical of a hen-pecked lover with the caption “Soul mates”.   Her last post is what drives the Hollywood actor’s fans into overdrive.  He is deep in sleep and she is lying next to him.  The unmade messy bed with wrinkled sheets and blankets suggest one thing. – Certainly not night prayers but friction, fluids and feistiness. 

Her Twitter fans melt into over drive.   “That’s F**king Tariq, you are blocked,” one jests.  Another one named Matthew Thomas tweets:  “Tell me it is not true. Please. Cute.”  Flavia Apio is perhaps happy she made a statement. 

A quick search by The Kampala Sun shows that both young lovers have it going for them.  Apio is based in England and represented by Storm Models.

She began modelling when she was young, but quit when she was 13. She started up again at 16, and was signed with Zone Models.

She recently revealed that she intends to pursue a physiotherapy career once she retires from modelling. Apio mentions her mother as her role model.  Her mother, Eva Mbabazi was a professional model who modelled for Viva Model Management in Berlin, Germany.

She has also modelled for Montana Brown, one of the Love Island (reality TV show) contestants who runs a swimsuit designer label.  In January 2019 she was part of a River Island campaign with Ocean Lewis.   Apio was in January spotted with modelling star Air Renzo attending a VIP dinner celebrating the What We Wear x Filling Pieces sneaker collaboration during London Fashion Week Men’s week.

The Young TV actor Michael Rainey Jr was born on 22 September 2000 in Louisville and as of now, he resides in Staten Island, New York.

Michael started his career at the very young age. He began his career in the acting realm as a child actor starting with commercials, both in TV and print, along with music videos.

He appeared on-screen for the first time in the popular American TV series for children, ‘Sesame Street’ as a child artist.

He shot to fame at the tender age of ten after starring in the Italian film UN ALTRO MUNDO released in 2010. It is indeed a role for which he mastered a new language and culture, and lived abroad for a year. He later debuted on the American comedy-drama web television series as Michael Burset in ‘Orange Is the New Black.’

Michael made his first appearance on the big screen in the film LUV released in 2012. Shortly after his first film, he was signed for the prominent role in THE BUTLER in 2013.

A budding star of Hollywood, actor Michael Rainey Jr, is popular for his recurring role in popular television series ‘Power.’ where he stars alongside Omari Hardwick, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, and Naturi Naughton.

In 2014, Michael played the character of Tariq St. Patrick in the American crime drama TV series titled ‘Power’ which broadcasted on ‘Starz’ network. He not only essayed the character in four episodes of season 1; he continued playing the role of Tariq St. Patrick in up to the latest season fourth.

Moreover, he appeared as Jalen Palmer in the April 2016 in the commercially successful comedy film ‘Barbershop.’

Well, as per reports, Michael earned $65,000 (sh245m) for working in the movie ‘Barbershop: The Next Cut’ which indeed must have contributed to his net worth, despite the fact that the actual figures remain confined.

For Apio’s mother, Eva Mbabazi, who signed her first modelling contract with Viva Modelling Agency in Berlin at a tender age, her hard work has paid off in the daughter. 

 “I do not have any regrets,” she recently said about her daughter’s career choice. 

Eva struggled to stand out as a Black Girl in the Fashion Industry; she once went bald to set the bold statement. Unfortunately, it never worked out as a bold bald Black girl.  For her daughter, things are happening on a silver platter.
