H E A L I N G: ⁣How’s everyone doing so far today?⁣⁣Revisiting one of my favourite books by @theijeoma and almost every quote is relatable in the middle of this revolution that’s happening. ⁣⁣“1. You must let the pain visit.⁣2. You must allow it teach you.⁣3. You must not allow it overstay.”⁣⁣— Ijeoma Umebinyuo, Questions for Ada⁣⁣Pain comes in different forms. Pain can be quiet. Pain can sneak up on you. Remember it’s okay to feel overwhelmed and also okay to log off and recuperate. ⁣⁣What’s happening is painful but it is NECESSARY. It’s allowed so many black people to express years and years of pent up pain, anger and frustration.⁣⁣But remember to allow yourself to heal ✊🏾🙏🏾 ⁣ #blacklivesstillmatter

P U L L  U P: Morning ig fam. Diversity is a strength, not a threat ✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿 It’s amazing the support we’ve seen for #BlackLivesMatter over the last few days but let’s keep the momentum going. This is just the beginning. We’re not going to dismantle in a week, racism that has been in-built for decades and it’s going to take more than posting black squares on the feed. Let’s keep calling out BS where we see it. Here for @jackieaina ‘s call for brands to #pulluporshutup 🙌🏾 PS: I shared in my stories my example of a brand that needs to do better when it comes to matching up their actions with their words...

We all know Mo Abudu from ‘Moments With Mo’ which airs on MNET Africa.The dynamic African talk show host has been offered her very own TV network (how great is that?!) and it was launched this week in Lagos, Nigeria. Africa’s 1st global black & multi-broadcast Entertainment Network, Ebony Life TV celebrated its birth and a whole bevy of celebs were there to show their support. The guest list included Malcolm Stevenson “Steve” Forbes (Editor-in-chief, Forbes Magazine), Governor Liyel Imoke of Cross River state, Genevieve Nnaji, Lynxxx, D’banj, Kate Henshaw, Rita Dominic, Eku Edewor and Ebuka Obi-Uchendu. They all arrived on the yellow carpet looking their best.


The lady of the night, Mo Abudu, styled herself in an embellished green trouser suit. I like the detailing of this ensemble, it’s very pretty. She kept her hair and makeup simple and clean.

Genevieve Nnaji knocked the dead in Deola Sagoe creation.The dress boasts a blue see-through skirt and an accentuated waist detail. The dress which was made with the finest of African fabric ‘aso oke ‘ is from Deola Sagoe’s 2011 Collection ‘Ori Oke’. This dress has gotten mixed reviews on several blogs but I think she really got it right with this one.

Eku Edewor looked smashing as always in a CLAN design dress. I love that Eku accessorized hers differently from the model with a pearl necklace and red pumps to add a pop of colour. Her sleeked back hair gave the look that classy feel.

Eku Edewor

Toke Makinwa had two change of clothes

. She started the night in this black lace number :

And later was spotted in this:

I loved the black dress more. Also I wish she’d styled her braids to suit her dressy attire instead of just letting them fall loosely on the side. She looked nice nonetheless.

Dolapo Oni  donned a green strapless dress to the event. She looked great.

Tiwa Savage looked great in a Bridget Awosika creation.
