It is not fair why she earns less than all those ladies. For example Carolyn Murphy is also with her in Estee lauder, but earns way more. It has to do with Murphy being #1 spokesperson. But Liya could it it too if given a chance. It is not fair at all.

Would you please make your fact straight? /? With all due respect to Liya, she is not ythe second richest Ethiopian next to the Sheik. She only makes 2.5 Million a year. Do you know there are dozens of Ethiopians who make way more she does. Like Americans we are fixated with celebrity and hollywood personas.
Here are some Ethiopians who make way more than Liya
-Amsale Design
-Scores of Software Engineers in San Jose
-Hi-Tech Veture Capitalist

Just a thought of 2 cents worth

[Tazabiw, why don’t you take the time to read the post again? We did not say, she is the second richest Ethiopian. She is the second Ethiopian to be in Forbes Richest List (of any kind). Al-Amoudi is a Saudi citizen but hey he is still Ethiopian. Now, if there is any Ethiopian you know of, who is listed in Forbes List (Forbes 400, Richest under 40, Richest Model, World’s Richest etc), by all means correct us.]

I am very happy to hear that our compatriot is succeeding and representing our country as a beauty model, however the information posted above is not true neither reliable.

What about Naomi Campbell?, What about Claudia Shifeer? I can mention you a number of models who have accumulated a worth of more than 30 or 40 million.

[Ok, the list is based on their recent earnings. You can see the list for yourself at Forbes, including pictures, videos.]

I am proud of liya! Thanks a lot for making ethiopia recognized to international community in a positive image. At least, it is better to be known as the number 11 richest model than being the second world donkey owner.
