Eyek Ntekim 

Writer + Content Creator

Hello and welcome to my blog! AfrikanRising is a place where I (Eyek) discuss (complete) health, beauty, and social justice. As a twentysomething year old Nigerian, I'm sharing my stories, from my struggles with self acceptance, to my favorite skincare products.

 I created this blog because I want you to feel something, whether that's joy, sadness or a desire to self-reflect. I'm learning and growing everyday and I want you to learn and grow with me. Join me on this journey and watch this African rise.

Pick of The Week

Since it's release last week, I have been listening non stop to a mix by a good freind that goes by the name of DJ Maga (twitter: @djmaga32). Of course you guys are thinking "Eyek you just chose this because he's your friend", nope you are wrong. If you are into to soul music, hip hop, r&b, jazz, or grime, you are going to love this mix as much as I do.  Whether I'm doing stregnth training or yoga, this mix just...works. Take a listen, you won't regret it!
