Adire work wear by Delavi Couture is certainly a must have. You already know that a work wear is basically what you wear to work. What better way to step into work, than with an Afrocentric look. Your work wardrobe doesn’t have to be boring, you can still maintain your stylishness with these Adire work wear collection. One of the reasons why I love the Adire work wear collection by Delavi Couture is because they are so colourful, comfortable and proudly made in Nigeria.

Her name is Chidinma Akobundu, I bet you can’t wait now. Let’s meet her..

Finding Natural face masks that actually work is like looking for a pin in a hay stack. Personally, I have tried and tested so many clay face masks for an even skin tone, acne, wrinkles and anti aging (even though I’m young forever) my face almost ran away from me

The Eyo festival also known as the Adamu Orisa is a Yoruba festival celebrated in Lagos Island, Nigeria. With no fixed date on the calendar, the Eyo festival was known to only take place when a King or important Chief passed away.

Taeillo is on a mission to rebrand culture through design. I once read a quote by Taeillo, “Nobody is interested in our culture because we have not made it appealing”. This statement I believe is generational. We certainly have a lost culture. Especially this generation. I’m not even sure what to expect of generations after this.
Part of which is what Bellafricana is restoring, just as Taeillo says… the only way we can change this is to “Brand our culture positively and use it as a tool of influence”. And I couldn’t agree more.. Welcome to the Modern Africa.
A piece of Taeillo in your space speaks volume and leaves a renewed piece of a lost culture.
The Bellafricana ACE Awards 2017 day was marked and Nigeria remains breath-taking following the first and spectacular launch of Bellafricana ACE Awards 2017 which took place on the 17th of April, 2017 at D-Venue, Water Corporation Drive, Off Ligali Ayorinde, Lagos, Nigeria.
You can almost still feel the excitement in the air resonating from the crowds on the day to witness this laudable event, the first of its kind in Nigeria and the whole of Africa.
In continuation of the role it plays in promoting Made-in-Nigeria quality products in the Nigerian economy by helping as many quality creative small businesses be at the forefront of the market, Bellafricana.com has also launched African Creative Exhibition and Awards (ACE Awards) to encourage those engaged in creating richer platforms.
The Founder, Bukky Asehinde, wonders, “Why should we wait on financial backing from the government and big institutions to help this industry? When we can create a platform to connect these Afrocentric businesses, they are maximising raw materials in Nigeria (Africa), providing employment for local talents within the country and creating wealth for the Nation”.
The complete list of Bellafricana ACE Awards nominees have been released and it is with great pleasure to see that well deserving brands made it on…
Adding value and creating impact is a noble cause that should be awarded. This by no means undermines or belittles the efforts of the brands that weren’t nominated, far from it.

Natural is the new green, to some of you reading this, it probably sounds clichéd. You might scoff, roll your eyes even, and say ‘Oh Nike! Come on, of course nature has always been green!! What’s new about that?’
Well, natural hair has always been black, chestnut or whatever colour each individual is born with, *wink*. Also in nature, we have a vast variety of amazing beautiful colours existing naturally. Still it’s nature.
What am I driving at? Green is a symbol for a sustainable future. In Ecology, sustainability (from sustain and ability) is the property of biological systems to remain diverse and productive indefinitely.  …

There’s a saying that whatever good thing we build ends up building us – Jim Rohn. I absolutely agree with this as it applies to almost all aspects of our lives.
