How long have you been in the business and what made you want to become a professional wrestler?
I have been in the business for seven years and I got into the business because it was a part of my childhood. When times were hard at home with my parents wrestling was my release and it continued as such Through my teenage year until I was able to start training and really embodied professional wrestling.
What would you consider the hardest part about being professional female athlete in a male dominated sport?
The hardest thing I find in a predominantly male industry at present is the attitude some old school fan and wrestlers have towards women’s wrestling. although it has improved and it has come leaps and bounds there are still issues such as pay sexism and sexual harassment are still present in the industry. Not to talk of new issues such as revenge porn and private video leaks. these are things we women not just in the women’s industry but there are issues that we are still facing and with time and the current boom that women's wrestling is experiencing these issues will be eradicated but right now these are the problems that I feel and I am in fear of facing in my personal career.
What are some of your career highlights and what companies do you currently wrestle in?
Career highlights in wrestling would be wresting in Germany multiple times and Denmark, wrestling a few festivals such as Wacken open air 2017. Another highlight of the year was me meeting Medusa at a Belatrix show and also having a WWE try out in November last year.
If you can name 3 wrestlers who influence your style, who would they be?
Great Muta, Pappa Shango And Aja Kong
Who would you put on the Mount Rushmore of WOMEN’S Wrestling?
Chyna, Medusa, May Young and Luna
Who would you say is/are the next breakthrough female star(s) in Wrestling?
So the next breakthrough star in professional wrestling I would have to say..... It’s me. Yep that’s right I said me. I’m telling you now mark my words I’m going to be absolutely huge. I don’t know in which way or it may be presented.... it may no be in the form of the Voodoo Queen Amarah but one thing is for certain I will be successful in this business. Hope you got a front seat!
Who would be your dream opponent to face?
Stephanie McMahon At Wrestlemania, Natalya, Gail Kim, Jaqueline and ODB
What do you think of the current state of women’s wrestling?
Wrestling is booming. It’s thriving it’s growing it’s improving and it’s getting more and more respect. Mad respect in fact. We are now recognised as athletes just like the men. Not just sexy we are strong women and we are telling our story through excellent matches day in day out. I’m excited for the future and excited to be part of it. It’s only the beginning. And we have companies such as the Bellatrix, EVE Pro Wrestling And the WWE to thank for recognising women’s wrestling and giving it the well deserved platform.
How does it make you feel when people discriminate women’s wrestling and what should be done about it?
To be honest it doesn’t bother me. Why? Because women’s wrestling is in the middle of a huge boom. There is no discrimination ,no negativity that has any relevance. It has no affect on progress and has no effect of success. The best thing to do is continue to succeed it continue to be a thriving growing part of the wrestling business. Because soon those that chant discussing comments and discriminate and are sexist pigs always as arrogant and think they are important aren’t..... well the world recognised they aren’t. Before long they are the same so called fan that will be in the crowd chanting ‘women’s wrestling’ and ‘this is awesome’. sometimes action is all that’s needed to silence idiots.
Do you believe women can, let's say, one day main event a show like WWE's Wrestlemania?
They could... But I feel there is still a lot of building that needs to be done first. Stephanie possible. I mean look at UFC for example. Need I say more.
What championships do you currently hold / what championships have you won or are about to challenge for?
At the moment I don’t hold any Championships. However I have just recently been crowd 2 time D.O.A female rest of the year. And outside of wrestling I am a 5 time running best mum in the world to my darling dog Darlaa the the dalmatian.
I did a bit of research and see that you’ve got apparent rivalry between you and Little Miss Roxxy. You’ve faced each other a few times, and in at least in one case, you had to be pulled apart. Can you explain the rivalry?
I’d say the rivalry is a classic tale of good versus evil. It’s something that has been ongoing for a while now. And I believe soon and maybe coming to the end. I feel like Amara can see people believing in her as their saviour. As a queen she does not like that so... She tries to eliminate the threat. It’s just simple as that really.
Now one of the reasons we wanted to conduct an interview with you is because your look stands out, as does your character. How would you describe your persona & in-ring style to those who don’t know you and what influences you to use this look and persona?
Her in ring style is that of a madman ragging through the streets. There is no rhyme or reasoning to it... As she likes to allow the audience to believe. There is always the plan in the end. The in ring style is a combination of Bruiser Brody and The Great Muta. Her body movements and mannerisms are that are papa Shango and it brings fear into the face of routines. The look of the persona of the Voodoo queen Amarah actually stems from a voodoo in the family. Her mothers tribe heavily believe in the practices of voodoo. The face paint comes from facial tattoos of her mother tribe.
Other influences actually come from a Nigerian movies and there representations of good and evil.
Have you got any future dates/projects or anything else that you want to plug?
RISE: on the 5th January last woman standing match Myself vs Roxxy! I believe this is the climax to the bitter rivalry.
And Bellatrix on the 9th February As also featured on Fite Network online
One last question. what’s next for you? Where are you going / what are your plans?
I would love you to work with WWE. That has been the main goal since I was a little girl. I feel professional wrestling is my calling.
And I feel I would like to start and end my career with the best company in the world. So fingers crossed they are interested in me and give me a chance.
Whilst I wait... I have new merchandise on the way and I plan on getting my face out there even more so.
Are there any people or organisations you’d like to give a special thank you / shout out to?
I’d like to Thank a Mr Daniel King for being there for me a helping me through though times. I’d like to Thanks my Cousin Nicole for her support throughout my journey. Her belief in me has kept me going. And I’d like the Thank Brother Andrew for also believing in me.
