"A winner is someone who recognizes his God-given talents, works his tail off to develop them into skills and uses these skills to accomplish his goals"
Larry Bird
Quite honestly I've been craving showing some other type of Fabulafricana beauty, I love me some Alek, Kinee , Awuoi..but I also miss the Teiko, the Sipa that I am discovering now..
I didn't want people to look at this blog and 2 just think that we all have 2 have the same body type, because the reality is that some of us have "bobaraba" (click on the name u'll understand)

We have shapes, that we're not afraid 2 flaunt, the other day I was looking at the doc about the nana benz in Benin (post 2 follow abt that) and I was even more sure that I needed to show more women of different sizes..I really don't mind but the info is if you are out there or you know a fabulafricana woman w/bobaraba who's doing the damn thing please let me know or tell her to holla at me...

Sipa is fiyaa man , she's 22 years old, she's reppin Mali to the fullest,
she loves her curves, she's a fabulous hairdresser as well who's done hair for all contestants during a Malian fashion festival, I love how she's a go-getter, I love how @ 22 she's doing so much....

Here's her modeling portfolio:

Here's her hair creation book:

Oh and the bobaraba it is:

Mrs Asha Hagi Elgi Amin is a phenomenal woman, when in Somali women from the 5 tradional clans were exluded from government decisions she created the
6th clan (please view the video clip at the bottom) where women united and put aside for their betterment their clans differences..This resulted in the election of 22 women within the Federal Parliament.(quota is set for 25 )

Asha despite death treats , negative critizism in the press stay focused on Somali women and children issues , founding the non profit organization
"Save Somali Women and Children" a non profit organization that focuses on issues of violence, poverty, women genital mutulation .

She personally fund projects that aim to empower women that represent
52% of the population , isn't that crazy how the percentage of women is higher than men, but that education , human rights wise in the 21st century we still have 2 fight so much...

She's been of great influence during the peace process in Somali, she was nominated in 2005 for 1 Nobel Prize ..1 beautiful calm and strong African women to know..

The Save Somali Women and Children's webbie is the following:

In order to understand the voting system for parliament seats in Somalia a bit better, here's 1 doc on the matter:

Djaa there are some Fabulafricana women in Somalia as well:)

Another young talented Africain painter, Dawn Okoro is of nigerian descant who grew up in TX.Ever since a little gal she's always been into drawing . I'm just hearing about her now but she's been around for a couple of years now,

She's a fabulafricana woman that would love to make her living of her art but until then she's studying law..Her acrylic paintings have been showcased in art galleries around the world in London, Australia, NY ..
Slowly but surely she's making a name for herself, in fact Shaun Robinson from Access Hollywood ordered a portrait from her...

My fav' piece

Love the length of the dress and the complexity of the designs on the dress

the bottom of the dress is sick


colonial feelin'

Clara Unegbu is the woman behind the Uju Fashion hizzy..I personaly love the long bohemian dresses, the bows, and the broderies on the dresses...

Clara insists on the double nationality of her line, it's both
African and Canadian...her inspiration is strongly African and she would love to open 1 day 1 factory in Nigeria..

But the other very interesting that this 37 year old woman was able to do, is create under her online retail store called "Lime in the Coconut" basically it's a retail store that showcases new talents, new designers..and by the way if u are an upcoming designer ..she's always on the look out for new talents so holla:)

Here's her email address:

Here's the webbie where you can find and buy the Uju collection as well see the other designers beautiful clothe, acsessories ect:
