Nigerian Fashion Designer Chiedu Chukwumah Breaks Under Pressure: Precious Lakis to the rescue

26 March 2017 / Berenice Mulubah 

Precious Lakis and Chiedu Chukwumah, two amazing fashion designers from West Africa, one smiles under pressure and the other falls apart.  The Bright Colors Fashion show held at Farotage in Raleigh, NC, on March 25, 2017, was a great success.  The show featured designs from Precious Pieces Couture, designed by Precious Lakis of Liberia and Doro1681 designed by Chiedu Chukwumah of Nigeria.  Both designers represented West Africa well (photos from the event coming soon).  Was it flawless behind the scenes as it was on the runway? Of course not and C Liberia Clearly has the 411 from behind the scene.  Here we go: 
Chiedu was straight up stressed. The up and coming Nigerian designer fell apart and he had a whole bottle of Hennessy to calm his nerves, which didn't help much.  Thank God, the experience Precious Lakis stepped up and took charge.  To his defense, the Bright Colors Fashion show was Mr. Chukwumah first fashion show in the United States, which is a great step forward into his career.  Africa is on the rise and with hard working individuals like Chiedu and Precious, the rise is few steps away.

Meet Alice Sumo, the midwife who has 1,000 babies named after her in Liberia

Alice Sumo is a respected nurse in Liberia where she has been a midwife for nearly three decades.  She was so loved and respected in Montserrado County that 1,000 babies have been named after her.
Alice, whose name means 'peace', has worked through the civil war and Ebola to do her job. She delivered her first baby at gun point at the side of the road.  In her three-decade career, she did not stop working even during the epidemic which claimed nearly 5,000 lives in Liberia in 2014 and 2015.  New mothers who Alice has cared for and supported through their pregnancy have called their daughters after her or if it's a boy, named him Alex. 
Alice now runs a maternal health center opened by Save the Children in her rural community. The children are a living testament to the impact Alice has had in Liberia.
