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(s) Of The Week

So I'm going to save my favorites from my beauty haul until my review later this month, so stay tuned. For now, I will leave you with these jams.

Eleko- Mayorkun

Once the beat drops, I don't think I will have to explain why this is on repeat!


Fantasy- Alina Baraz & Galimatas

Those of you that follow me on snapchat heard this song yesterday when I was posing instead of going to class. Lol. Anyways, these are two songs I definitely see myself playing non stop this summer and beyond. 

Turning Points

It's April!
