ABOUT JOPEE DAIRO

1. What inspired you to become a digital artist?

Ans: Firstly, My name is Gbemisola Joseph Dairo popularly known as Jopee Dairo; I am a Visual Artist with a uniqueness in telling stories from the African perspective using all forms of Digital and Mixed Media. I was inspired by the greatness of the Black race and the untold stories that lie beneath.

2. Can you describe your artistic style and how it has evolved over the years?

Ans: I am a mixed media artist who paints ideas to life with the digital use of African fabric patterns such as Kente, Adinkra, and Ankara. Over the years my Art has moved from mere creation of Artworks using black photography to telling untold stories about the greatness of motherland Africa.

The last part is when I get to do my digital edit, print, and put off for sale.

Ans: One of the major challenges is finding inspiration not just to create but to continue. Other challenges are in the areas of affording gadgets, power supply, and understanding the markets.

Ans: Having my work nominated for best documentary at the African Magic Viewer’s Choice Awards (AMVCA) 2023, featuring on a project with Ghana’s renowned Glenn Samm, and partnering at the BellAfricana UK Summer Pop-up 2023. I am quite proud of being the only Nigerian in my category and being one of the very few Nigerians to be nominated for the Accra Music and Arts Award 2023.

9. Do you have a favorite piece of artwork that holds special meaning to you?

Ans: Yes I do, and that will be “Wails of a Mother”, a project I did in collaboration with Ghana’s Journalist and Model coach; Titus Dhoku.

3. Watch your diet

Perhaps you have heard that diet plays a significant role in the health and longevity of your skin. But you might be asking yourself: “What’s the best way to pamper my skin?” The blend of food you eat, the amount of water you drink, and the amount of exercise you have all have an effect on your skin. A healthy diet, drinking plenty of water, and exercisers will not only help your skin stay healthy, but they can also help your skin to look younger. The holiday season is in full swing, which means that many of us are feeling extremely festive and ready to celebrate. Unfortunately, when we start celebrating, it can be easy to overindulge in fun holiday activities and forget about our fitness goals. This blog is for you to help you stay on track and not lose your guards.

4. Visit Friends and loved ones

Christmas is just around the corner. Time to get those “I love you” gifts and the “I’m sorry” gifts ready, pack those bags and make sure you have enough food and drinks for the road. The best part about traveling is that you get to see your loved ones again. But for many of us, it is also a time to treat ourselves to a little pampering. After all, who doesn’t like to be pampered? I do, and hope you too. If you’re in the mood to pamper yourself, you may want to consider getting a little facial treatment, going to a salon and getting a manicure, or getting a massage. Go catch up on some fun, create memories and be with loved ones and stay happy.

5. Give yourself permission to indulge

We are all guilty of letting ourselves go during this time of the year. We let the stress of the year overwhelm us and we forget to take care of ourselves. The end of year is a time to celebrate and most people do go out to party and have fun but it is important to also take time out to pamper yourself. Pamper yourself with a massage, a facial, an exfoliation, a facial or any other activity that gives you time to call off the year stress and relax. Pamper yourself with a little indulgence and enjoy the end of the year with a smile on your face and a relaxed body.

6. Have a breath of freshness

Good perfume diffusers and scented candles have the ability of easing down stress. In fact, perfume diffusers are even used for aromatherapy. As we all know, these perfume diffusers can be used as essential oil diffusers. Essential oils are commonly made from plants, herbs and flowers. These essential oils have been used for centuries for their scented and therapeutic properties. If you want to be relaxed, calm and more composed, then immerse your room with a scent of goodness then get your scented candles and perfume from Raale lifestyle.

6 Effective Natural Remedies For Acne

Oriki face oil by Oriki on bellafricana marketplace

There are a lot of speculation as to what really causes acne and can often be daunting to find effective natural remedies for acne. While some will argue that the food we consume has a lot to do with facial breakouts, others are of the opinion that bad hygiene has its role to play, and also it could be genetically transferred or environment too matters.

All these speculations seems true and can be argued. I used to have terrible acne and I remember being told that was my season for it. Until I got myself good home remedies and skincare products to ultimately set me free.

For people suffering from these, here are 6 effective natural remedies for acne problems that was my last resort solution:

1. HYDRATING FACE CREAM

Hydrating face cream is one of such solution to acne problems. as dry skin more often than not tend to cause acne problems. The skin contains lots of hair follicles from which hair grows. Acne is the result of these becoming blocked. Tiny glands near the surface of the skin produce sebum, an oil that prevents the skin from drying out. They can produce too much sebum, which blocks the hair follicle. Other debris, such as dead skin, also builds up. With the Treda organic hydrating face cream, this gives the face the right amount of moisture that it deserves, thereby keeping the face smooth and silky.

      2. ANTI-ACNE CREAM

This is a special anti-acne treatment, This is a product of janeli global and this is also very effective for the total eradication of pimples spot on the face. What prompted me to purchase this products was how well my friend hyped it.As small as it may look, it does big magic to the face. If truly you are tired of acne, then rush and get this janeli global anti pimples cream.

      3. FACE OIL

Back then I use to avoid face oil, as I thought it was the reason why I had severe breakout. Until I bumped into this matolo face oil. This was wonders, it worked like magic. This face oil is a combination of apple extracts and rosewater with its antioxidant richness, then that was my final bye bye to acne problems. My face stopped wrinkling, it was greazy and super glowy. I would forever remain grateful to this matolo face oil product. Yea!

      4. GLOW FACE WASH

Apart from using good creams on the surface of the face, what we also need to pay attention to is what we wash our face with. Some people spend more money on getting good face creams only to allow bad facial wash spoil the work. Matolo skincare product is one I would always vouch for, No matter the skin issues, This brand will help restore your beauty, confidence and smiles back. Trust me, Acne can cause depression atimes.

       5. FACE WASH

Three years ago I was a top fan of Oriki face oil product, from moisturizers, body oil, body wash etc, I used them a lot. Those were my best products to use. This oil free Acne wash will perform the exact same thing I use to experience when I use this brand. I will always recommend this brand because of the high value I have received by using it.

     6. FACIAL SUNSCREEN CREAM

The use of sunscreen helps slow down the development of wrinkled, premature-aging skin. It helps to prevent facial brown/dark spots and skin discolorations. This l’avyanna face sunscreen is super effective.

5 Suitable Hair Care Products In 2022

Treda Hair Care set

Looking for suitable hair care products? Brands like Modara naturals, Sahara sunrise, Treda organics, Wura secrets, Organic life plus, Amal Botanicals specialize in oils, butters, shampoos, and conditioners that will enhance hair growth. After thorough research, I have been able to come out with good brands that have a commendable effect on hair growth.

When shopping for your next package of hair products, you should be paying attention to the ingredient list. There should be natural ingredients in your natural hair products. Products that contain naturally hydrating ingredients like coconut and shea butters are often your hair friend. You want to stay away from products with alcohol in them or sulfates that may dry your hair out.

Another tip for choosing hair care products is to know your hair’s quality and texture. Do you have highly porous hair? Does your hair eat moisture? Is your hair heat damaged, therefore in need of more protein than oils? What nutrients does your hair need to maximize its current health? All of these things should be considered, when spending your coin on your kinks. Luckily, we’ve tried and tested quite a few hair products over our time.
