This post is about promoting the "proudly African" mindset that some of us are trying to instill in our generation and beyond. We want Africa portrayed positively and not as the unflattering place that some people would have us believe. 

We are all about virtues like dignity, honor, and self-respect in Africa. And let me tell you, our style game is strong! From Adire to Aso-Oke fabrics and more, we have a rich heritage of fashion and style that is uniquely ours. And if you're a Nigerian fashionista, you know that tying a head wrap or scarf is practically in your DNA!

A while ago, I had the pleasure of participating in an exciting photo shoot for a coffee table book with one of Nigeria's top journalists, Azuka Ogujiuba. The shoot was in collaboration with Nike Art Gallery and featured some amazing Nigerian women who are making a difference in various fields. Our lovely host, Azuka, showcased us in Adire, which was simply stunning! 

We had a great time during the shoot, full of smiles, love, and laughter. I'm super excited to share this book with you once it's published. In the meantime, remember to stay stylish in African prints and fabrics. Cheers!

FYI: these pictures are NOT the official pictures, but behind-the-scenes photos snapped on my phone.
