Personal Life

Being one of Namibia’s most popular celebrities, it’s impossible not to have heard of Meriam Kaxuxwena. She is a catwalk model who participates in pageants, commercial shoots and does photography modelling. She was born on 29 October 1992 in a small town called Helao Nafidi in the Northern part of Namibia. Meriam Kaxuxwena will be turning 29 years old. She is 1.77m tall.

Surprisingly though, considering her profession, growing up she looked rather boyish to the point that students and teachers were always confused as to whether Meriam Kaxuxwena was a girl or a boy. By the time she started high school at Augustineum secondary school in 2006, her transformation from her boyish looks into that of a woman had already begun to show.  

Based in the USA, Meriam has participated in pageants around the world. She is a great ambassador of our beautiful country Namibia.

Schooling

At the age of six, Meriam Kaxuxwena relocated to Gibeon and attended the Gibeon Primary School. Then when she turned nine, she moved to Windhoek. She attended the Tobias Hainyeko Primary School where she completed her primary school. By this age, she had already discovered her passion for dancing. Meriam created an ensemble called Sister Nana that specialized in kwasa-kwasa dance sequences. To date, these dance routines are what Meriam Kaxuxwena is still famous for.

Career

Meriam Kaxuxwena’s biography is already impressive for someone of her age. She began modelling at the age of 10. An early entrant into the pageant scene, Meriam Kaxuxwena bagged some of her first titles in 2006 and 2007. After she completed high school in 2011, she pursued her interest in catwalk modelling.  

After her exploits in modelling, her breakthrough finally came. 2014 was the year that Meriam Kaxuxwena went from a local pageant girl to an established model. She took the African continent by storm. Apart from the fashion shows in Windhoek, Meriam also impressed the crowds at the Angola International Fashion Show in Luanda. From her home country of Namibia to the London ramp walk, Meriam Kaxuxwena walked her way to international success. 

Meriam Kaxuxwena made Namibia proud when in the Miss Tourism Universe pageant in Lebanon, she walked her way to Miss Africa 2014 title.

Miss Universe aspirations

Meriam Kaxuxwena is clearly one of the Namibian models to have made it to the list of top models both locally and internationally. Her amazing charisma, flair and inimitable walk are all it took Meriam Kaxuxwena to be, not just one of Namibia’s top models but an international name.

When she won the Miss Internet title at the annual global beauty pageant held in Ivory Coast, Meriam Kaxuxwena made it clear that she is making the most of a short-lived career. She decided to grab as many international opportunities as possible to build a name for herself while still young. 

Meriam Kaxuxwena took up a career in modelling immediately after grade 12. She wanted to save money from her gigs to further her studies. According to Meriam, her own education would never end, but her modelling career would. 

Meriam Kaxuxwena also competed in the Miss Namibia beauty pageant hoping to win the title and represent Namibia at Miss Universe. 

Song

You know you are an inspiration when someone writes a song about you. The Meriam Kaxuxwena song dedicated to her was produced by up-and-coming Namibian artists Liina and Zulla. She expressed how much she loves the song as she jammed to it in an Instagram live session.

Other dreams

Meriam Kaxuxwena has also tried her hand in acting. She acted in two movies, The Howling (2017) and Miss Supranational 2017 (2017).

Beyond the catwalk

If Meriam Kaxuxwena’s Instagram following of over 305,000 is anything to go by, she is increasingly going to gain more followers. Who's to say that she won’t hit the one million mark? An entrepreneur in her own right, Meriam Kaxuxwena is the proud owner of MK Swimwear, very successful lingerie and bikini line which she founded in 2015. This is the first lingerie line to be launched in Namibia. The collection caters to all body types and shapes.

Apart from that, Meriam Kaxuxwena runs her own modelling agency. Determined to improve the local modelling industry, she started her modelling college - MK Modelling Training - in January 2018. Her aim is to uplift young upcoming models. Her agency teaches them key skills such as catwalk and posing techniques, self-confidence and personality development.

Relationships

In this world of social media and snapping just about anything and everything, it’s really surprising that Meriam Kaxuxwena, a public figure, has managed to keep her love life low key. Apart from the claims that she slept with footballer Emmanuel Adebayor, she hasn’t revealed much about her romantic affairs.

Controversies

Meriam Kaxuxwena has had a few squabbles with the who's who of the entertainment industry.

In 2019, she got into an altercation of sorts with Dillish Mathews at a club in Pharaohs in Windhoek. According to witnesses, Dillish pulled Meriam Kaxuxwena’s wig, pushed her off the couch and broke her nails and phone. 

This was after a Twitter battle between Meriam Kaxuxwena and Big Brother winner Dillish Mathews. Meriam revealed that she slept with soccer player Emmanuel Adebayor, Dillish’s boyfriend at the time, two years back in London. It is not clear if Dillish and Emmanuel were dating at the time.

Meriam Kaxuxwena revealed on Twitter that she got a restraining order against Dillish. 

In another controversy, in 2018, Meriam Kaxuxwena’s Instagram spat with local songstress Blossom topped the headlines. Blossom compared herself to Meriam after the model posted a photo on Instagram. Meriam threw shade at Blossom and accused her of riding on Meriam’s fame since Blossom had an underwhelming music career.

In 2016, Meriam Kaxuxwena made headlines for not paying the models of her lingerie show. Before that, she hosted a swimwear launch show in 2015 and failed to pay 32 of the models who featured in the event. Meriam later clarified that she had moved the payment date because she was unable to raise enough money through sponsorships.

Despite all the controversies, the most commendable thing about Meriam Kaxuxwena is her ability to block out all the negativity, stand up to bullies and focus on the positive.
