Afua Adom

Stylist, writer, editor and Producer

Afua moved to London from Glasgow at aged 17 to study journalism at City University. After specialising in broadcast and music, Afua found herself working at T4 and PopWorld before moving on to the dizzy heights of 60 Minute Makeover on ITV. She grew bored of decorating strangers' homes in an hour or under and made the leap to music publishing where she worked for Blue Mountain Music under the watchful and legendary eye of Chris Blackwell.

After styling a few bands for the label, she realised this was her passion and left music to freelance as a stylist and writer. She styled for ‪Rhian Benson‬‬, Terri Walker and The Def Jam Comedy Tour as well as many 'normal' clients before landing a job at Blackhair as Editorial Assistant.
Afua rose to Editor after only a year and left to be Features Editor for Pride and Producer and Anchor for Arise News. After switching to ABN TV, Afua produced and presented the popular show Young & Rising and launched Entertainment Weekly.

She also hosts The Breakfast Show on ABN Radio as well niche TV show called Sustainable Energy for CNBC. Afua is also a great supporter of the UK and international music scene, especially in the world of Afrobeats. She continues to host events, as well as write news and features, hair, fashion, beauty, women's interest and do celebrity interviews.

Afua lives and works in London. In her spare time she likes to make up dance routines with her daughter, have manicures and take long walks by the canal. ‬
