“I’m Congolese and my mission through my creations is to bring African chic and royalty vibes without using wax. I create makeup and hairstyle around that concept and for this one I’ve inspired myself from tribe.”

“Before I shaved my head I used to wear my big afro and people always look at me as a weirdo and always wanted to touch my hair like I live in a fancy white neighborhood. Now that I shaved my head, I really affirm myself and feel free. That always reminds me of Solange’s “Don’t Touch My Hair”. That’s my story.”
