BLACKENICIOUS GLOW UNCOVER’D: SILKY GIFTY.

BLACKENICIOUS GLOW UNCOVER’D: SILKY GIFTY.

When I started the Blackenicious Glow campaign, my goal was to showcase and celebrate the beauty of the black skin through my social media platforms. Through the platforms, I’ve been able to celebrate black beauties from around the world. It gives me so much joy to continue to celebrate and take it further with BLACKENICIOUS GLOW UNCOVER’D, where we’ll not only celebrate our black beauties but also get to know them better.  That being said, we kick off  BGU with Silky Gifty, the sassy, crazy, fun and just all round badass baldie, boldie blackenicous glow from Lagos, Nigeria.   Eno-Obong Etim Effiong, who goes by the name Silky Gifty, is a vibrant personality who follows her own rules and is not afraid to express herself whether on social media or off. Silky hails from Akwa Ibom State and was born and raised in Cross River State, Nigeria. She’s the fourth of six children and lost her father at a very tender age. She and her siblings were raised by a strong mother who was always about love and discipline. “I was a very stubborn child. I didn’t make the job easier for her but she didn’t spare the rod.” She taught them the importance of education but most importantly, the importance of hard work.

Silky Gifty is not only a filmmaker(Actor, Producer and Script Writer), this talented lady is also a model, dressmaker(still learning) and a caterer. In fact, during our first chat, I caught her at a...

NDOLOMIX: THE FACE OF LOVE WITHOUT SEX.

I was just thinking about this year’s valentine’s day and how much I enjoyed it. Celebrating this special day has evolved over the years and so have I. Like most people in a committed relationship, we want our love to grow along with everything; sexlife, success, and more family. So even though I am not particular about Vdays, I was pondering what love has been like on “non-holidays”.  There are so many days when we have shared overwhelming love for each other from just a moment together. For example, the other night he brought home a chocolate covered cake for me from Lila’s, a new bakery in bonapriso that I wanted to check out. I’ll say just the gesture itself opened me up and I spilled my love to him as I enjoyed the cake. The moment was just perfect, listening to music, eating the deliciously sweet cake and going deeper into our conversation. Later, I felt so thoroughly massaged inside that I slept off instantly. I woke up the next day certain I can choose that version of closeness over even sex. In terms of feeling, a moment  like that to me is way stronger, way deeper than sex. So what if sex was taken out? No problem, because I believe that love is a feeling and there are many other things that bring us a shared feeling of love for each other. We focus on the things that unify us with the same intensity. That feeling of not wanting to be with anyone else, of following our own hearts each day. Communication is key. The conversations in...
