This totally makes her a down-to-earth and a wonderful African Mommy.
Her blogging and vlogging style is very real because most of what she writes and makes videos about are based on real-life experiences. She dishes out her great recipes in fun ways while writing about beauty, relationships, mommy life, career and so much more. Her YouTube Channel displays her life as a mom, wife and a blogger living in Lagos. The weekly series, ‘Life in Lagos’ is totally captivating as she takes us around beautiful spots in the city of Lagos and talks about thrilling and controversial issues.
