Hello and thanks for dropping in! My name is Dela, otherwise known as Brown Skin Mama. I am a wife, mother of 4 children, homeschool teacher, natural hair enthusiast and of course blogger/ youtuber.
I wouldn’t say that I’m your average “African/ British Parent” as I’m very much against the grain when it comes to a lot of traditional ideas. You’ll probably start to see that the more you read my posts.
I was born in the UK and have since made the move to Ghana with my family. Both my parents are Ghana born but eventually moved to live in the UK many years ago.
I kicked off my “social media” journey on youtube back in 2015. I never actually intended on starting a Youtube channel or blog but one day out of …I don’t know what…I decided to switch on the camera and record my first ever Youtube video (It was awful, I’m cringing as I think about it). Well that was 2 years ago now (as of 2017) and I haven’t looked back since.
I guess my youtube channel has just taken a natural progression into a blog seeing as I always have so much to talk about!
Through a series of events a lot of changes have happened and I have decided to keep my blog a bit of a separate entity from my youtube channel (hence the name Brown Skin Mama and not Natural Ghana Girl)
I love to share all about our family, motherhood and of course my life in Ghana.
Medasi. (Thank you)
