Behind the scenes of Sika Osei's swimsuit photoshoot

Our crush on TV Presenter Sika Osei just went up the roof, literally. We love us some melanin, and Osei is the face of all that ‘chocolate power’.

She recently did a swimsuit photo shoot for the folks at ZAZAIIAfrica, and we are excited at how popping her melanin is – literally screams ‘I’m proud of my dark skin’.

Her natural hair makes her feel glamorous because it showcases the features of her face, she tells

“I transitioned to natural about 5 years ago. Initially it was to curb my thinning and ever breaking permed hair. But I fell in love with it ;How it looked, how it made me feel and even how people reacted to it,” explains the 53Xtra Host on her hair transition.

“4 years in I cut it and started regrowing and it’s even more enjoyable now that the first time because now I understand my hair and how to manipulate it to make it work for me.”

She also spoke about how her work influences her style.

“Being a presenter and actress means I can actually experiment a bit more with fashion because I have the benefit of working with a stylist that gives me access to a variety of brands and fashion designers. This makes my style more exciting I guess and not predictable.”
