A love story between 2 Kenyan girls in a society that does not recognise same sex relationship is what this film is all about. 'Rafiki' means 'Friends' in Swahili & that's exactly how the relationship between the 2 starts. This is the first Kenyan film to ever be screened at the 'Cannes Film Festival', a film that was banned in it's own country of origin (the ban was lifted for 7 days to allow the public to watch the film after it created waves in Cannes). 'Rafiki' was one of the many films...

Going through the photos & videos that I've made of him through the years bring back such beautiful memories which in turn make me feel so grateful to have him in my...

Somebody pinch me! Ok, that's the feeling that I've been having ever since I received a phone call to let me know that I had won the 'afrika!Community Award in the 'Business Category' late last year. This is not the first award that I have won but this is special because it came at a time when I was dealing with some self-doubt as a business owner, which I wrote about here.

'Remain in Light' is originally an album by the American Rock Band 'Talking Heads' which has been covered by 'Angélique Kidjo'. I had the opportunity to sample a bit of the amazing tunes at her live performance in the Elbphilarmonie in Hamburg. In her own words, 'it's not cultural appropriation but cultural diversification' as she channels the original beats in her own way by using Afrobeat & a choir to transform the fearful texture of the songs into a soulful warmth. She additionally...

Sometime back in October, I had a great opportunity to meet & connect with amazing black business women entrepreneurs in Berlin for a fun-filled evening & networking event. This event happened to also coincide with the official launch of 'MyUrbanology', an online platform whose aim is to shine a light on the strengths & strides of people, especially people of color who are doing their thing & positively making an impact not only on the people around them but also online & to...
