Say hello to Afia: The 25-year-old looking for a ‘summer romance’ on Love Island 2022
She knows Montana from the 2017 series!
Things are about to start heating up, because Love Island has blessed us with not one but two bombshells already: Enter Afia and Ekin-Su. Two new girls means one thing and one thing only: Chaos is apart to erupt among the couples.
Among the two bombshells is 25-year-old Afia Tonkmor, who has already made it very clear she’s not one to care for stepping on toes. So, as she walks through the famous villa doors, here’s everything you need to know about Love Island 2022’s Afia.
25-year-old Afia has just been announced as the latest Love Island 2022 bombshell
Afia is 25 and from London. Fun fact: She’s vegan, if you care for that sort of information. When asked why she wants to be on Love Island this year, Afia said: “It just seems like a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet someone, have an amazing summer, just have so much fun and have a bit of a summer romance as well.”
She works as a lounge host
Before swapping life for the gorgeous villa for eight weeks, Afia was working as a lounge host at a private members club. Sounds swanky! According to her LinkedIn, she has also worked as a healthcare assistant.
Afia seems ready to stir the pot on Love Island, let’s say that much
Afia admits that she falls in love quickly, and has warned the other Islanders she is “coming for your man”. “I fall in love quickly, too quickly, two dates I am like, ‘OMG I am obsessed with this boy, he’s everything’,” she said. “If I see a guy that I want in the villa I’m definitely going to make sure I get him. Watch out girls, I’m coming for your man.” Drama!!!
She has 2.8k followers on Instagram
Afia has 2.8k followers on Instagram, which is definitely going to sky rocket when she enters the villa. Her Instagram bio reflects her veganism, describing her as a “kale enthusiast” and, her feed is VIBES. Think pictures of her hanging out around London, with friends, and on holidays. Where do I sign up to be her best mate?
Afia knows an former Love Island contestant
There’s also a picture on Afia’s Instagram of her with Love Island 2017 cast member, Montana Brown. Montana owns a swimwear brand, called Swim Society, and in the slide show of pictures it looks as though Afia may have modelled for the brand.
