The Tongue twister ‘Blingshiki’ , was derived from 2 words ‘BLING’ + ‘DANSHIKI’ and  hardly be pronounced 10 times without stuttering within 5 seconds.

My collections portray ​style that’s nonconformist, hippie & futuristic yet inspired from African heritage. This is why we are ‘our own pop culture’ & e
