    African communities have always told stories. We grew up having them passed down from generation to generation through oral traditions. However, with the rate at which we are advancing technologically it is difficult for the old and the new to be in the same wine skin. But it is not impossible.

    Safari Yetu Adventures

    Paulo Coelho said; “If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine. It’s lethal!” We have learnt this from 9 months in a pandemic when we needed to stay home to keep safe.

I had a chat with Safari Yetu Adventures and there is so much magic our country has to offer! 1. What inspired the making of Safari Yetu Adventures? My compulsion for travelling, exploring and experiencing different cultures; networking and seeing places made me think of “what if I did this with other people?”…

    After my interview with Beryl aka Belnizzo (read it here) I got a recommendation to feature her lovely sister a creative, make up lover, performing arts and Afro-centric enthusiast. Here’s how our chat went: 1. What’s one random thing people should know about you? That I am really good at doing impersonations. LoL                       2. If you were  to use one make up brand forever which one would it be? It has to be Maybelline. 3. What kind of coverage do you prefer from foundation? My go-to foundation for myself as well as my clients is  a medium- coverage foundation due to its natural finish and it is also ‘buildable’…

    Elizabeth Njambi – CEO and Founder Wakilisha

    Back when I was at Kenya Model United Nations I had the amazing chance of meeting women who hold up other women. My confidence in leadership was made possible by a number of them including Elizabeth Njambi CEO and Founder of Wakilisha that you’ll know more about from this interview. 1. What inspired the establishment of Wakilisha? Two things, actually. In my last year of law school at the University of Nairobi, I attended my first legal aid exercise as a member of the Students’ Association for Legal Aid and Research (SALAR). I had always been scared of attending legal aid exercises because I couldn’t live with myself if I…

    Are you happy?

    The wild thing about life is we somehow believe that all the things ‘meant’ to make us happier are external. When we feel unhappy we are told to; meet up with some friends, go on a road trip, go to a new restaurant and try a new meal, go to the gym… then the world presents a situation where you can’t escape to find this happiness. A pandemic meant limited movement and erasing everything we thought was normal. Now you can’t do all the things that are meant to make you happier. You have to sit in a house by yourself or with some people you share a blood line…

    Valentine Ayuko Mathenge – Writer and YouTuber

    This week’s feature is yet another recommendation and someone I’ve come to really respect their content and hustle. Valentine’s platform is a positive one which she uses to share the word of God while not shoving it in your face, makes sense? Read it for yourself… 1. In your bio you share, ‘influencing you to think for yourself’ why is this essential for people who follow you? Wow, someone has really been stalking me huh? JK! Well this tagline came up from me not wanting to be referred to as an influencer. However earlier on this year I began noticing that people follow whoever I highlight on my stories, people…

    Muthoni Drummer Queen – CTA 101

    ‘Own yours’ words that Muthoni Drummer Queen said that have changed my life from episode 13 of the CTA docuseries. ‘If you go through ten years and no one ever gives you money are you still saying you won’t do your gig? If you won’t do your gig it means that you are operating at the wrong scale. This is exactly what I need because this week I was monitoring my insights on one of my social platforms and realized I was losing just as many followers as I had gained. I was ranting about it because as a creative for years you feel like your audience is betraying you…
