Welcome to Afrikana Stories lifestyle blog for my melanated sisters: Where education meets entertainment and a whole bunch of foolishness in between!

"The child of an elephant will not be a dwarf."

Hey Healers, Light Beings, Seekers of Knowledge and Truth! You’ve boldly entered my mind! This space is where I share most of my life lessons that I’ve gained over the years of my nomadic journey. I must warn you, some of this material can be triggering to those who refuse to do the self inner work. To that extinct, I unapologetically share this healing space. You will NOT leave the same. Our words heal the deepest wounds.

So what you will find here is a collection of my experiences both in written and video. As a writer, I love to express my emotions in written form. As a healer, visual aids work best. I’m combining a mixture of both, and hopefully we will meet somewhere in between! Sooooooo much happen in-between ;)

Nigerian Jollof Rice Gone Wrong!

Jollof rice is a CLASSIC in West Africa. It really wasn’t until I moved to Ghana that I realized how much they LOVED jollof rice. The problem is.. I don’t like it 🙁 And the fact that I didnt’ resonate with my ancestors bothered me so that I decided to do a little research to find a way to enjoy a dish that is so loved by my people. It’s all about connection for me.
