Undress Black Roses | Contacts

019A9114 copyThe name Black Roses is derived from my first name, Rosey. Have you ever seen how rare and fascinating a black rose is. It could have been red, but no – it’s black and with every pluck of a leaf, so many stories and deepness from within falls.

Founded in 2009, this blog was chosen among 25 Great Kenyan Blogs You Should Follow in 2014.

Black Roses is the spirit which thrives in plentiful inspiration. It has given me the deserved space and freedom to share my feelings with the world; from rants, raves to love. I write on a lot. Everything you read on this blog is not necessarily the story of my life but who am I kidding? If and when I write about others, it’s because I see myself in you. 

Additionally to living and loving life, I am the founder and editor in chief of this blog – the closest to my real self, anyone can get to without touch.

I am a media personality (Publicist/Journalist and Blogger) based in Nairobi; a fashionista and lover of colour. I also work as a part-time model and have been featured in fashion spreads among them True Love Magazine and as a cover model for Healthy Woman Magazine. For more than five years, I have been working as a TV Host, Producer and Director while hosting Grapevine TV Show on KBC, Kenya’s longest-running entertainment magazine show.

I am also the Editor in Chief of Coke Studio Africa Mash Up Website. I have also worked as Associate Editor of UP Magazine (Nairobi’s leading Arts & Culture Magazine). I am now writing for the Goethe-Institut NairobiDSTV.com, Kenya’s Saturday Daily Nation and international magazine on African Fashion and Achievements: ARISE, among others.

I also run my own PR Agency specialising in Artistes Image Consultancy and Event Curation. Coke Studio Africa and Sauti Sol are among my clients.

Thanks for reading through, x.
