Taking to Instagram recently, Gelila shared a photo showing off her curves in a black mini dress, tights, and a pair of boots.
The 33-year-old is also wearing sunshades as she poses with her friend on what appears to be a balcony.
The model's post comes after she released her documentary film Mai: Life is not Honey, which her website states that she directed.
The site also notes that Gelila began her modeling career back in 2006 after she worked with Ford Models New York and Ford Models Paris. Bustle adds that she also released a book titled "Guzo" as she wanted to share the way the people from her home country, live.

Over time, Gelila's fans have discovered that there's a lot more to the social activist than meets the eye, and they love her for it. The love grew more after PEOPLE exclusively reported that being a father helped make Tyler's life more solid.
The 50-year-old filmmaker mogul, who opened up during an interview, stated that raising his son, Aman gives him the most joy in his life.
It's no longer news that Tyler suffered physical and sexual abuse while growing up, and that experience makes it difficult for him to discipline his son.
Recounting a previous incident, Tyler said:
"I was in the other room writing, and he had just given the nanny fits. He didn't know I was there listening to him. He's just going at her. I get down to this level, eye to eye. We're talking; we're having a conversation. I'm saying how disappointed I was, how he shouldn't behave that way."
Tyler said he watched his son grasp the message he was passing across before apologizing to him (Tyler), the nanny and Gelila.
That incident caused Tyler to get out of the room because he 'lost it.'
