When I first learnt that She Leads Africa annual Slay Festival was going to be held at the infamous Tafewa Balewa Square (TBS), I was quite impressed because TBS has a wonderful space for such an event and compared to last year, it definitely  was a good improvement.

Fast forward to sun scorching Saturday, I got there as normal with my squad @thisthingcalledfashionn & @effkoko the ambience of the event was really good, it felt like a Coachella (at least from what I have seen) but with a lesser crowd probably because the gate fee was 5,000 NGN. A lot of nice picture spot, saw familiar faces, same old marketplace, Food court and different talk sessions going on with amazing guest speakers.


I attended the Content to Cash Class by Ink Eze, founder of Aso ebi Bella, Food and Lifestyle Blogger @sisiyemmie which was moderate by Dolapo Oni.


  • Referrals: This is the oldest means of marketing. A work well done will always bring new customers. The best referrals one can get is from family and friends.
  • Have a personality: Let’s people you for a particular thing. i.e Aso Ebi Bella is know for promoting the beauty and culture of African especially Nigerian weddings.
  • Make genuine friends of social media
  • Grow organically: This is a slow process but in the end it is always worth it.
  • Make sure you are delivering.

The next guest speaker was Bonang Matheba. Let us observe a minute of silence for Bonang’s SLAY……. It’s way beyond the nice dresses, The Loubs and sleek hair, Damn!!! 🔥 Bonang definitely deserves the title she who reigns supreme.


  • To get people’s attention you have to be good at what you do.
  • Starve your distractions and feed your focus.
  • Find that one thing about you that you can bottle and sell.
  • Be unapologetic about your beauty, power and sexiness.
  • Return hate with love, kill them with kindness and then bury then with success.
  • Pray and have faith



  • I actually don’t understand why you have to pay 5,000 NGN  for tickets.
  • As much as I enjoyed the talk session, I think talk sessions are becoming too saturated but then no knowledge is ever enough.
  • I also think mentorship should be done during Slay Festival, I mean its She Leads Africa.
  • The location was very good and the crowd was nicely controlled or maybe it could be because tickets were 5k.
  • Generally, the organisers did a very good job with the event. From media publicity to the event on the main day. It was definitely a good day.
