‘It’s not just about being a MAC Maker, it’s about opening doors. This is the beginning. I want this to do so well so we can have other MAC Makers out of Africa. Not just myself.There are other MAC Makers from other continents so we should have one come from the East, West, North South representing the whole continent’ Savage gushed.

She added ; I’m so happy that MAC has finally given us a voice. I also chose red because even though I’m a nude person, I wanted to choose a color that pushes me out of my comfort zone and I spent two years creating this shade so I’m so honored, and so happy.

“Tonight is not really about celebrating me. It’s about celebrating all of us and our voice being heard as an African woman, this is about the whole continent and I’m really grateful for MAC choosing me to be the first MAC Maker but certainly not the last.”
