Red is everything bold; to be clothed in a red gown is twice that feel. (more…)

So here’s the story; I raided some models’ shoot.  .. oops.

On Sunday, after church, I got an aunt to style my hair the traditional way since I’ll have a busy week and less time for my hair. Threading, that’s what it’s called.

I paid a visit to Sela, who’s a friend and a photographer (I’d postponed our meet up long enough). Apparently, they were wrapping up a shoot, waiting for the last model to show up. The makeup artist, Kirky, asked if I’d wanted some makeup… why not??! So I told her just how I wanted it, and she slayed!

I am a Ga woman. My tribe is known for their fierceness, aggressiveness, high-spirit and ‘Ganess’ (that’s if there’s any word as such). One thing I admire about my tribe is, we enjoy patronising our culture. My hairstyle is called ‘Akwele Waobii’ translated as Akwele’s Fingers. So technically, this hairstyle is meant for me.

It’s always fun, engaging in an unplanned shoot. I’ll share the professional photographs with you when I get hold of them, but for now, take a look at these selfies.
