AKWAABA / KARIBU / WELCOME
"Malaika", meaning Angel, in Swahili is a word that encapsulates the story of a daughter of the diaspora.
There is power in telling a story that has been waiting to be told. The motivation behind Malaika Apparel Co. is just that. It’s a story of a brown skinned black girl embracing her full self, unapologetically. It is a story of the daughter of a Ghanaian mother and Kenyan father. It is the story of a black woman living between Ghana and the United States. This website embodies the beauty of the diaspora.
I am proud to present this company, Malaika Apparel. This is an ode to my parents & to all people in the diaspora.
Akwaaba, you’re welcome.
