Do you ever get the desire to pack up your Ghana Must Go and just go without looking back? If you answer is no, these folks would definitely give you the travel bug and more.
From travels around the world to unexpected conversations with total strangers, they’ve probably done it all or at least their Instagram tells a story of a flourishing life.
From the name you can figure it out. The life of Asiyami is indeed gold or rather goals. Her pull to places that have visual stories make her body of work captivating.
If only I woke up like this every morning. Thanks for your hospitality Roberto. For all those who kept asking where to find the rolling bed in Mexico, I was at @lavalise.mx. Phenomenal space but even better… Meeting incredible people like Roberto will make you love MEX CITY even more. Roberto is a proud Mexican and loves sharing his culture with visitors. He knew exactly what we needed. Thanks @rbyl 😉
Creativity is paradoxical. To create, a person must have knowledge but forget the knowledge, must see unexpected connections in things but not have a mental disorder, must work hard but spend time doing nothing as information incubates, must create many ideas yet most of them are useless, must look at the same thing as everyone else, yet see something different, must desire success but embrace failure, must be persistent but not stubborn, and must listen to experts but know how to disregard them. –Michael Michalko Cc: @heatfreehair 📷: by @islandboiphotography #selfiesonwalls
Ever wondered what a Nigerian x Malaysian mixed bae would look like? The Emezi sisters are just it.
Yagazie is a documentary photographer who beautifully captures glimpses of her everyday experiences in Nigeria.
She pointed at her former, darker self. I understand her answers behind the 'why', reasoning that keeps company to a history I have been taught. But her personal experiences soar over me because no matter how much I understand, the truth is that her painful feelings and experiences, I do not share. I stared at her then and now and still saw her beauty glowing. 2016 #documentaryphotography #yagazieemezi #everydayafrica #Monrovia #Liberia #relearningbodies
Azemezi the storyteller. Commander of words. We wouldn’t fault you for getting lost in her carefully curated collection of stories.
"oh my heart, i want you to be strong/ i need you to be all i believe in" – – usually i don't put quotes on photos but today go be an exception. i was listening to amadou + mariam last night when this line from one of their songs leapt out. it has stitched me together repeatedly since. so today, because the baron asked me to, i am trying. #travelbunny #ghana
The one and only Lady Rossa of the duo 2manysibilings. From her signature braids to her contribution to the Kenyan fashion scene, Velma is one that inspires authenticity and being just you no matter how quirky.
“Attorneys are plain dressed people who just wear black and white.” Well, we object! From traveling when off work as an attorney, to writing for Travel Noire, Cynthia’s Instagram is a grid of bright swatches of color. Oh and her style is definitely eye candy.
Sarah Waiswa likes to call herself the afrohemian nomad. Think of her as an ambassador of the city you’ve been dreaming about. Her behind-the-scenes moments that are captured through photos and captions would feed your mind and soul.
A list wouldn’t be A-List without a Ghanaian on it. Chelsea Boatey is proof that you can be on a budget and still be fabulous. Her sometimes quirky styles and sheer fun photos gives off the calm and happy vibe. Need someone to rock your boat? She comes highly recommended.
With gems being dug up every second on Instagram, it was so difficult narrowing this list down. For our Beaus don’t get mad just yet. Be sure to subscribe to get all the ‘gram juice.
