The Eyango girls were in town to showcase their latest collection. Mina and Kamala Eyango, founders of fashion brand Lavillenoire, held a pop-up shop for their latest collection.

FOUNDER OF TOOSHAI FACES TALKS BEAUTY, BULLYING AND STRENGTH WITH NEW PHOTOSHOOT.

FOUNDER OF TOOSHAI FACES TALKS BEAUTY, BULLYING AND STRENGTH WITH NEW PHOTOSHOOT.

Bullying can scar one for life. To overcome it leaves you powerful, superhuman powerful…ask Shaitou Cho, founder of¬† Tooshai Faces. The popular MUA recently shared a powerful message on her facebook¬† page, on how she overcame bullying. When I was younger I was bullied about my protruding forehead, and I grew up thinking it was a problem, so I always chose hairstyles that will cover it up. But curiously this bullying made me strong because I adopted and accepted all the nicknames that were levied on me because of this head. Ask my classmates and school mates and teachers from PSS Bafut,¬†Eric Forbi Forbi,¬†Yenih Ngwabo¬†LI LI Forkum¬†Mboka Ndeh¬†Nelson Ndeh¬†Golda K. Ajode¬†Sylvia Yenwong-fai¬†Malaika Nain Ngole¬†Adjeley Yobo¬†Solange Fonkem¬†Beryl Litil Nubed-Tchuetie¬†Lorraine Ndingwan¬†it was just fun time for all of us. In the end I realised this was the most beautiful part of my body and what always made my looks stand out. I knew once you could love yourself and accept yourself as you are, no one will make you feel different, because God created you as you are in a unique way. So I”unveiled” the head¬†ūüėāūüėā, if you can say that and started enjoying everything about me. To all of us who do body shaming, give love a chance, and to all those who don’t love something about themselves, know that you were created by God in a unique way and you are here to serve a purpose. Use everything you have and be the best you can be. Let people like Nick Vujicic, Turia Pitt, Muniba Mazari and a host of others be your inspiration. How powerful is this? Sinchang...
YW COVERSTAR: EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH EBANGHA NJANG.

YW COVERSTAR: EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH EBANGHA NJANG.

She can easily be confused for a model with her striking looks and her signature androgynous fabulous style. So…are these some of the factors that make Ebangha Njang standout? It was her media presence that first caught my attention. On Facebook and Twitter, she was always going hard, promoting Cameroonian artists. It was really refreshing to see the love and support she was pouring into the Cameroon music industry. How could one not notice? Around the time we were gearing up for our next Coverstar feature, I received a message from Ebangha “Hello I’ve been following your blog for a while now. I think y’all amazing.” At that moment, I felt she was a genie and had just granted my wish because little did she know that she was at the top of the few people we had in mind to be featured on the next cover. We immediately took that as a sign and viol√†! YW’s latest coverstar. Yvonne Ebangha Njang was born and raised in Douala and Ed√©a respectively. Her dad( who worked with the Ministry of Agriculture) and her mum( a Housewife), instilled discipline and the fear of God in her and five siblings at very young ages. Being a close knit family, her childhood was filled with fun family times, including relaxing by the River Sanaga, watching favourite cartoons and attending church on Sundays. That makes for an exciting childhood, doesn’t it? But it wasn’t exactly the same when it came to her teenage years. “My teenage years didn’t mean much to me honestly. I know it’s hard to believe lol but i was a...

COVER STAR: YW INTERVIEW WITH TOOSHAI FACES.

COVER STAR: YW INTERVIEW WITH TOOSHAI FACES.

Meet the incredible Sinchang Cho. She’s the very talented MUA and beautician of Tooshai Faces. I’m a fan of Sinchang’s work. We had long hours of conversations over the phone in prep for this interview and each conversation left me feeling so empowered and proud. Proud of the woman she has become, the wife, the mother and most importantly the creative Makeup Artist and Beautician the nation and the rest of the world will soon get to know.Though she resisted several times, makeup always found a way to be front and centre in her life. With colleagues always complimenting her makeup, friends asking her to do their makeup and even working as the makeup artist on set of a Cameroonian movie and a music video as well gave Sinchang the boost to finally embrace her calling. Below is the interview we did with Tooshai Faces. Read, get to know her and spread the word.   ¬†YW: How and when did you get your start in makeup? TSF: I can‚Äôt exactly tell how I started, I happened to always have my makeup right or at least better than most other girls makeup. So I just remember as far back as when I was in Lower sixth in 1998, I started doing my brows, then others wanted me to do their brows, it wasn‚Äôt exactly what it is today but it looked good at the time. Then later on in University, I used to help my mom out at her hair Salon, she was a teacher but she owned a Hair salon and when we all got back from school, we‚Äôll...
