BIG HAIR DON’T CARE.

BIG HAIR DON’T CARE.

2018 saw the premiere of Love and Hip-Hop Miami and everyone is still going on about the Afrolicious queen, Amara La Negra. Her beauty, her body and that haurrrrr gurrrl! Speaking of the hair, Amara was mocked by one of her cast mate on LHHM,  Young Hollywood, because of her big  luscious Afro hair. In order to break the American music market, he asked her to be ‘more Beyonce and less Macy Gray.’ He explained that the sleek look is more appealing and suitable than the big afro…whaaat? Anywhooo, we can’t blame him. He’s only following in the footsteps of a society where anything black, from hair to skin tone, has ignorantly pushed to the back…always. They see the black skin as unappealing and the Afro hair as untamed. We’re not here for it. Yenihsworld promotes the beauty of the black skin and the afroliciousness of the our hair texture, short, big and untamed. Afro hair/Big hair/Lion mane has always been sexy. It symbolises strength, confidence, freedom and most especially beauty. Today on our platform, we’re celebrating Amara and many of our sisters in media/entertainment who are influencing the world while rocking their afros with so much sassiness  and class. Amara La Negra, Afro-Latina singer and Love and Hip Hop Miami cast member.   Sahndra Fon Dufe, Cameroonian actress, author and activist.   Joan Ngomba, Cameroonian presenter, producer, blogger and founder of Dcoded TV.   Lydia Epangue, Cameroonian Fashion Blogger.   Frédérique Harrel, Cameroonian/French Fashion/Lifestyle Blogger, Entrepreneur, Speaker, Founder of SHE unleashed and Big Hair No Care.   Mimi Mbah, Cameroonian model and glorious clapbacker(LOL)   Funmilola Akande, Nigerian...

YW COVERSTAR: EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH ADELINE NTOH.

She loves love and she loves people. It’s no surprise Adeline Azah Ntoh, founder of The Liiwir Method, passionately chose a career path that combines both so well. In this article/interview, the certified Yoga instructor takes us on an exciting Yoga journey, The Liiwir Method. So how did it all begin? It all began for Adeline in 2006 when she was working in corporate. It was the first time of having consistent internet access and being the curious one, Adeline dived straight into internet haven, exploring and discovering. She had always been fascinated by the possibility of people creating ideal lifestyles for themselves. It was through exploring and discovering that she came across numerous fitness and lifestyle blogs which opened her up to her own ideal world . She fell in love immediately.During her spare time, Adeline would enjoy reading through fitness and lifestyle blogs. What intrigued her the most was the fact that the people behind these blogs were living their best lives from the comfort of their homes. She wanted that too. At that point in her life, Adeline was very determined to create an ideal lifestyle for herself, one which she could follow through for the rest of her life. Going through all the fitness blogs, yoga stood out the most. It resonated with her because she wanted to create something that she could do even on her laziest day. Adeline became even more interested in yoga after stumbling on a particular video on youtube . That changed her life. “I instantly fell in love with the poetic explanation. It shook my core. I instantly knew...

YENIH’S DELITES: A CAMEROON JELLOF(JOLLOF) FEAST.

On this particular day, I was craving Cameroon Jellof rice but I really didn’t feel like cooking. I just wanted to stay in bed and catch up on 24: Legacy(I’m still pissed the show got cancelled…mscheeew!) Anyway, back to the matter. So I told myself “I’ll just go in, prepare a quick jellof rice and roasted chicken and I’m out of the kitchen.” So how did I end up with a feast? How Sway? Anywhooo, by now, I should know I don’t just get in and out…I get in and feast out. So that’s how yours truly came up with all of these. What’s on the menu? 1.) Cameroon Jellof Rice. 2.)Plantain cups filled with sautéed mixed peppers, prawns and kidney beans. 3.) Spicy Roasted Chicken. 4.)Potato Salad. ✌✌✌✌...

IT WAS A GLITZ AND GLAM AFFAIR AS THE EYANGO GIRLS SHOWCASE THEIR LATEST COLLECTION.

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. The collection was made up of fabulous, easy flowy and bold prints.   The event which was held at Topish Shop in Bastos, Yaounde, was attended by socialites and fashionistas alike. Also in attendance were the legendary Dedi Eyango(Mina and Kamala’s father) and Cameroonian MUA, Shaitou Cho, who was the make-up artist for the ladies. It was definitely a fabulous turnout at the half Cameroonian/ half Sri Lankan sisters’ fashion event. You glow girls!🖤🖤              ...

SPOTLIGHT: YENIH’S DELITES.

I remember my friend once asked me ‘What does cooking mean to you?’ and I replied “Cooking is a conversation with the soul”. That instantly resonated with her. She later on told that it switched  her mindset to start seeing cooking as a time to connect with her soul rather than a chore. With time, she started noticing great improvements in her cooking( and it had nothing to do with the fancy Wok her partner gave her as present). I love food but more importantly, I love to cook. I’ve always been fascinated about the science behind cooking. How one can can instinctively and rightfully blend spices and food together to make a delicious meal. I love the colours, the textures but most importantly, the taste of food. Through cooking, I realised the best meals come from your gut feeling and not from recipes. I realised your soul needs to be fully awake when cooking.(I realised that’s when the best meals are made, whether freestyle or well-known recipes.) Whether from Bombay to Bafut, the culture behind cooking/food moves me. For over 4 years now, I’ve been documenting my cooking. I’ve created a special segment on this blog where I’ll be sharing pictures and stories of my experiences during the process. With time, I also plan to share recipes so we can all participate in the cooking experience. I hope to entertain, inspire through my love for cooking. Let’s have...
