Aw this is so great to hear! I used to not be as confident. Funny thing is that taking pictures of myself and just observing my body and peoples reactions to it helped to greatly build and boost my confidence and self esteem levels. Its all about just being comfortable and content within and outside yourself. Study and Love every inch of yourself. Every scar, every stretch mark, every hair. Love it, it’s yours and theres only one in the entire universe.
A collection of some of my favourite images from Another Africa's curated “Shades of Swagger" series featuring Africans from all walks of life, and from all over the continent and diaspora - past and present, all sharing one common thread in their aesthetic - they’re wearing sunglasses.
“Fela Kuti Music is the Weapon” is a fascinating documentary about the Afrobeat legend, musician, composer, performer and occasional politician. The film mixes footage of Fela Anikulapo Kuti performing at his Shrine nightclub, interviews with the controversial musician, glimpses of life at his not-so-palatial Kalakuta Republic compound, and scenes of Lagos street life. Some voice-over narration gives basic information on Kuti’s musical career and Nigerian politics, but for the most part, the images are left to speak for themselves. Shot in color, it’s an important historical document capturing Kuti in stage and home environments that were most crucial to his life and work.

Introduce yourself! M: My name is Masani Negloria. I currently live in Austin, Texas but am originally from a small south Texas town called Beeville. Why did you make the decision to go natural? M:…
That’s a tall order! or short because I’m only 5 feet tall :P
I’m not quite into taking pictures of my feet, haha but thank you :)
Thank ya ;)
Thanks! You just have to be comfortable with yourself and embrace the things that you or others would consider flaws. Insecurities are powerful in a negative way and it may take a long time to overcome certain feelings. Just remember that you are you and you are meant to love yourself so be and feel loved!
Damn is correcto. Ummm…thank you, haha
Because you’re probably also dope :)
Me: We’ll have to talk about. The onesie: you may have to carefully squeeze into, haha ;)
If I like ya, I like ya. If it happens to be a Girl or if it happens to be a Boy so be it. I really have no preference and have found endearing qualities in both sexes
