Who is Ekei? I am Ekei Mbu from Yaounde, Cameroon.  I like making everyone around me look fab in the best way possible. I am drawn to all things fashion! Especially hair. I think a hairstyle can make or break any outfit. I have been known to style a few people myself.

i love hair accessories.
How would you describe your personality? My personality: Hmmm,  fun and bubbly, full of life, loves a crowd of interesting people and I like to stand out in any scene of life.

What is your dressing style? My dressing style is very dynamic, keeps changing all the time. In a nutshell it can be described as cool, edgy classy and timeless at the same time. I also indulge in ethnic African-inspired pieces when I dress up.

my African-print dress. I so wish I’d worn heels in this pic.
Your favourite music track would be…Music is part of my day to day life and I can’t really pick a fave track but for the year 2011 /2012, my fave track remains Adele’s ‘SomeoneLlike You.’
If your life was a movie, what would be its title and who would play you? Hahaha!  If my life was a movie, my role would be played by Khloe Kardashian Odom, yes her. And the title will be CHANGES. (I need to think about the title even more, lol).

What can’t you leave the the house without? I can’t leave the house without my sun glasses and lip gloss. NEVER without my lip gloss.
Best beauty secret…My best beauty secret is my Mascara. It brings out the length and volumises my lashes.

The one clothing item I can’t live without is… I cannot live without my pair of jeans. No matter the time, jeans always fashionable.

Who is your all time fashion icon? Fashion icon na which one na? lol.
Ha! Whose style inspires you? Kim Kardashian and many others.
You and those Kardashian girls…you go steal for their house oh! Hahahaha! I know everyone thinks  they are superficial but they are hot no doubt and I love the way they dress. Always on point. I must go visit them. It’s on my bucket list: meet the Kardashians.
Haha, okay. But finish my interview first. Your favourite quote is…My favorite quote is and will always be ” Do unto others what you want them to do unto you.”
Me in the yellow pumps!
Do you have any blog where we can see your style evolve and get tips from you? Unfortunately not yet:(  i know you always tell me to start one…But still in the making. I’ll let you know as soon as it’s up and running!

I’m transitioning into a natural look at the moment.

      I think we should do some of your fabulous accessories. Also you could show off some potential spring-summer fashion ideas for all of us. I think you are doing a great work. Keep it up. Meanwhile is there anything you would like me to do?
