TV Personality Ariyike Akinbobola releases Pretty New Photos, spills on Her Big Plans



Ariyike Akinbobola - August 2014 - 01004
Ariyike Akinbobola needs no introduction on Bella Naija.

The trained lawyer turned media personality is a regular contributor on this platform with “Ariyike Writes“.

The Spice TV Africa presenter is also a wife, a mother, a blogger at Reflections with Ariyike, a compère, a vlogger (Ariyike Weekly) and a humanitarian.

She also currently hosts “On the Couch” which airs on Wednesdays at 10:30 PM, and the luxury gadget show “Spice Toys” which airs on Fridays at 4:30 PM and 11:00 PM, both on DSTV.

Ariyike is set to publish her first book by end of October 2014. The book will address social issues including cyber bullying, child sexual abuse, rape and depression.

According to her rep, it is a known fact that the modern day society is plagued with many social problems which affects a considerable number of individuals either directly or indirectly.

Ariyike decided to write a book on how to deal with some of these issues so that people can rise above these problems and be hopeful despite the odds.

She is also actively involved in charity work, and organises Christmas parties for orphans and the less privileged annually. This year, her online charity store would kick off, and you’ll be able to get clothes and accessories for as low as N500.

She also hosts the “Best of Both Worlds” networking event – an event organised to give aspiring musicians a chance to shine.

      Ariyike, answer me this: does that wig do your beautiful face any justice? If you say yes, I’ll never complain about your wigs again.

    Pretty girl, horrible hair. Why do Nigerian women feel they need this nonsense they put on their head? The hair/wig spoilt the ensemble.

      Maybe the next time you have your girl or sister up for a photo shoot, you can tell her to go bald and maybe that might “werk” for you
