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.

Meet Rosemary

Hey Beauties! My name is Rosemary and I am a Probation Officer full time. I am also an Online Content Creator on You Tube. My videos range from about my faith, natural hair journey and fashion. I like to have the perspective that the focus shouldn’t just be on outer beauty, but inner too. This includes health and fitness, which I am also passionate about! I interview people and discuss things I refer to as hot topics! I have a blog called The Modest Life, where I focus on modesty and faith based topics to encourage, mainly aimed at women. I love the camera and also moving towards photography, mastering my craft and turning it into a business.


I do what I do because I am driven by the fact that my inspiration is Jesus. I want to walk in His will for my life, inspire and encourage others to do the same. I am passionate about the things that I do, I enjoy encouraging others to be the best that they can be.


My You Tube channel is seriously my baby! I have been nursing it for about 8 years now. I just love it! I enjoy engaging with my audience about exciting things that we love. This ranges from hair (which the channel started with), beauty, faith based topics, fashion and etc! I like to keep it positive and real. This is what you should expect from me. I went from relaxed hair, to texturised and now natural. This is all documented on there. 


My relationship with Jesus is a very important part of who I am. It determines my lifestyle and that is why it is a big part of my You Tube channel. I have not always been close to God (I started You Tube when I was 19), but as time has passed and I have had certain life experiences, I have realized that without Him I am nothing. He dictates to me which direction I should go with my channel and business. It is a blessing that the Holy Spirit tells me what I should do a faith video on and people comment on how timely it was, it makes my heart feel full to give back!


Upcoming things: I would like to do a lot more interviews and collaborations with people. It is fun doing things alone, but what are we without supporting and uplifting one another? Things get more exciting when collaborations happen and you get to hear other people’s perspectives. I am looking forward to celebrating three years natural in April! See my last celebration here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h6iq2gxMp0Y I would like to also upgrade in terms of production and quality. My quality is quite good still, but there is always room for improvement! I think it is a powerful thing when we can admit that.


Lastly, I am the type of person that if I am going to do something I like to do it well. I am honest in my product reviews and believe in integrity. I am grateful for those that watch my videos, which come from the heart. I like to give back and see that others are doing good, if not better than me. Jesus be the centre of it all! Thanks for reading and feel free to check me out at the links below. God bless Beautiful! That thing that God is telling you to start, do not delay and start today! Make the most of what you have and believe in the gifts that God has blessed you with.

Here's where you can find me!
