I recall joining a group back then in university created to encourage students to venture into skill acquisition. I was one of those nominated to assist with the Art club. That’s where I met Ekpemi. The first thing that struck me about her was that she reminded me of a Manga Cartoon…lol! And the second thing was that she was an Engineering student who could draw very well and ironically she loved drawing manga like characters…lol! Ekpemi was in a world of her own. I guess that’s another thing I liked about her.
Over the years she became a natural hair carrier, like me. Today, it’s nice to see her putting both her love for arts and for natural hair into an art illustration book. I like it when people I know are doing well in their ventures and using their talents to stand out.
Like I said on my facebook wall when promoting her book, all naturals should buy this book especially for your natural afro daughters! *wink* Let’s encourage our African sisters and daughters to embrace our God given beautiful natural hair *smiles*
