So I took a really short trip to Ghana last week for my eldest brother’s wedding. The trip was the perfect opportunity for me to practice all the things I’ve been learning about photography recently, even though I still feel very much like a beginner!
Here are a few of my favourite pics
Literally cannot stop listening to this song! It’s dangerous for the people around me because I keep singing it and I wasn’t blessed with a voice that should be tryna hit those high notes!
I came across Paapa on Twitter and I love the message behind his music. Have a listen and see if you fall in love as quickly as I did.
So I pretty much fell in love with this song as soon as I heard it and the video has just multiplied the love by 100.
To be honest, Wretch 32 can’t do any wrong in my eyes, he’s made some of my most favourite songs of the past few years. But this video! Too beautiful!
Have a look and see if you agree…

So this Saturday I headed down to Brick Lane for the third annual African Fashion Week London.
Let me use this opportunity to do a cheeky outfit post:

But yes, back to African Fashion Week London. This was my first time attending because I’ve annoyingly been out of the country on the day the past two years. To be honest, I had heard mixed reviews about the previous years and there were some negative comments about the organisation of the show, especially of the first event in 2011. I can honestly say that I was really impressed with the running of the event. All the shows looked really professional and there were no awkward waits where it’s clear that someone isn’t ready. All the staff were really friendly and all the African-inspired stalls were beautifully decorated and stocked with everything from kente bags to mud print lamp shades. Jollof and curry goat were even in attendance.
I saw some absolutely stunning designs, and it was a beautiful “I’m so proud to be African” moment *sings*
Here are a few pics of the shows. My favourite (and I think a lot of people’s favourite) was Baah by Jessica Baah. This is the second time I’ve seen her in a fashion show and I’ve been blown away each time. Ella & Gabby’s solo show was also amazing.
