Hosting the FACE List Awards in NYC!



Hi Guys!! So this past Saturday on July 20th, I was super honored to host the FACE List Awards here in NYC. I actually love hosting solo onstage, having a partner is fun but I love the chemistry I have with the audience when it's just me and them. I had a blast! OK let talk about the awards...


Essentially they honor brilliant African people in the fields of tech, entertainment, business etc. It's always inspiring to be around people from the continent that continue to defy the odds in their respective fields and continue to soar into greatness.

Congrats to all the honorees, presenters and of course I have to give a huge S/O to the FACE 2 FACE team...they outdid themselves! What a lovely event!

Until next time!

Head over to the FACE 2 FACE site to find more about them!

Hosting the Taliah Waajid hair show in Atlanta!

This past weekend on April 27th, I had the pleasure of hosting the empowerment panel at the Taliah Waajid hair show in Atlanta.Taliah is the definition of a BOSS! She launched her own amazing natural hair care line and if you haven't tried all I have to say is.....oh no baby, what is you doing? lol! I promise you, her products are amazing for our hair!

 The goal of the panel to inspire all the ladies in the place to be and I think we accomplished that mission!

The first thing I did when I found out I was booked for this gig was to prep and do my research on the panelists. It's really important to know who are you speaking to and who the esteemed panelists are. Helps with the keeping the conversation flowing!

This was me backstage prepping minutes before the event - just going over notes and making sure I highlighted the key points I wanted to make!



For the occasion I worked with my friend stylist Clarence White! Love how he put these pieces together. The pants and dress are from Beatrice .b Italia, the shoes are from Nine West and rings/earrings from Jilani Jewels. The outfit makes a big difference when you are hosting - it's the cherry on top that keeps you feeling extra confident.

All in all, I had a great time as evidenced by this big ole smile on my face. The entire panel lasted about an hour and half and I hope attendees got insight into how to run their own businesses and how to thrive in the corporate environment!

Until next time...have a great weekend folks!

Hosting the 10th annual WASH Gala!

Hi Fam!

Last Saturday I had the pleasure of hosting the WASH Gala here in New York City! The organization behind the gala is called FACE Africa and what they have done over the past few years in Africa is nothing short of amazing.

Spearheaded by their fearless leader Saran Kaba Jones - they are tackling the water crisis head on by funding, supporting and advocating for community hence the term WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) By the way did I mention they are doing all this admirable work all across Sub-Saharan Africa?

Amazing right?

Because I was hosting the tenth annual gala, I looked to the Queen of Wakanda for inspiration..

My friend Tim did my makeup for the gala! We drew inspiration from Queen Mother Angela Bassett for the occasion and I think we came pretty close! Soft smoky eye, a pink ombre lip and a chiseled and contoured face! The cheekbones had to push througggghhhh!


I have to admit that I actually was NOT nervous to host the gala. Maybe because I knew we were all congregated together to raise money for such a great cause or maybe it's because the inspirational speeches and energy in the room my motto was simple....I just had fun onstage as the host!

Because I was hosting I knew I had to go ultra glam! I am so thrilled that this Jane Michael Ekanem gown arrived in time and fit the bill perfectly! 

I had a ball! What a wonderful night! To find out more about the WASH Gala and FACE Africa click here

Black Girls Rock 2018 Recap!

Happy October Everybody! Hope you're having a great day. Can you believe we have just a few more months until the year is over? Time is flying!


Recently, I got the chance to host a television special for BET Africa and BET International for their Black Girls Rock All Access Special! It was a chance to go behind the scenes of the show and capture what dosen't make it on TV. I interviewed our fave celebrities backstage and got upclose and personal with a few stars on the red carpet. It was a very eventful and fulfilling two days. So much black girl magic!


For the occasion I wore a two piece from Queen E Collection  for day one of the special.


I love when a look comes together - my makeup and hair were bomb too so I felt super confident and ready to capture some magic!


Let's fast forward to the day of the show - as evidenced by my smile I was waaaaay too excited!

On the carpet I caught up with actress Amandla Sternberg. I have watched her grow over the years and it's always such a joy to chat with her. She was one of my first celebrity interviews so I am forever indebted to her and her mama.

Also caught up with gospel songstress Yolanda Adams and her daughter on the carpet! Like mother, like daughter...the beauty runs deep in that family!



One of my FAVE interviews of the night! The one and only Fantasia. Y'all she is so special, we are lucky to witness the talent that is Fanny. She greeted everyone when she walked in the room and you can immediately feel her positive energy. She is such a light!

I also got a chance to interview one of my fave singers EVER - Jazmine Sullivan. We kiki'd on the carpet and chopped it up about her performance at Black Girls Rock.

Overall I had a great time. I am so blessed to call this passion of mine a job. Here's a toast to the rest of 2018, can't wait to see where my next adventure takes me!
