Brunch is not only for the weekend! It’s my favorite meal & I can have it when I want to- LOL! #ThursdayBrunch : sharp cheddar, scallion & spinach omelette, pink grapefruit, red grapes and my yummy farmer’s market obsession- Zucchini nut bread with lychee/Soursop ginger juice!

Finally getting through all the episodes! We need to speak of how we set ourselves back by not investing in ourselves..With all these new global African millionaires and billionaires -you would think we wouldn’t need to beg others to fund us in telling our own stories!
Self Validation above all is the way forward! So proud of Us!!! B4 America/ Hollywood was introduced to Lupita - she was part of the great cast telling the story of another African City called Nairobi, in one of the greatest productions of our generation on the continent entitled “Shuga”. Now Accra City is being spotlighted in An African City! As the great Chinua Achebe said ” If you don’t like someone’s story, write your own”… instead of criticizing the doers!
"Some may criticize this series as showing a one-sided perspective of Ghanaian life: these girls are educated, relatively affluent and worldly. What would you say to those who feel you’re not accurately representing the population?…. " I think that all the times that I have seen Ghana represented on mainstream media, that has not been a fair representation. There’s more to the story than that . When Hollywood shows Africa, it’s poverty, war & disease, & that’s only part of the story. They have not given you the full picture. I wanted to change the dialogue…" #ChangingTheConversation - I hope BET will take heed now that it is in Africa that there are great African productions that should be incorporated into their line up at home and abroad instead of selling an entire continent and beyond the same ole same ole! I said this to the VP of BET Africa when they first came into the continent that they must invest in Africa and African productions not just feed us their usual past dated content- It’s the digital age-we have access to that already! Black Entertainment is Global and should be as inclusive as we tell others they should be! We have always been educated, relatively affluent and worldly… If you didn’t know then get you some learning because there are young street peddlers that can speak with you in a multitude of languages & tell you their history and yours on any given day without having had the western idea of formal education! #LivingByOurOwnStandards #BlackStarNation #KeepShining #IfYouBuildItTheyWillCome …
<3 how the world is coming toward this series…. It maybe cliche but we too are the world in our failures as well as our greatness!
#NewEraClassic #TrueToThisNotNewToThis … #ClassicsAreForeverInStyle…. Spring Inspirations: prints, Cazals & rope chains… Trying on my new Beedagle by @belindabaidoo jacket. Now available by appointment in NYC #SpringForward (at Republic Of Global Fusion)
I would have been surprised if this was not their choice! It’s clearly the year of @lupitanyongo …& in turn the year of the Afropolitans and Africans Living Abroad (ALA) to finally tell our stories as locally global citizens…I hope Lupita starring in the film adaptation of Americanah comes to fruition because there are many sides of telling our Global African stories & Lupita is Americanah on so many levels!

Andrew Dosunmu “Elsewhere ” - 10 years of photography! It was great to finally get to see and touch “The African Game” - great memories of being in Ghana at the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations as Andrew experienced & shot Accra City & Her Black Stars- Ghana was so live & with promise for the future that year .., looking Forward to the World Cup & The Black Star Nation’s return to the promise of forward movements as a people and a nation’ (at Republic Of Global Fusion)
