“The self-styled “Beyoncé of Peckham”, Yinka has followed her love for music to lead her to present a daily show on Capital XTRA. With infectious energy and poppin’ personality, she has made a huge impact – hosting the MOBO awards nominations event, and co-hosting the red carpet coverage of the BIFA awards. Safe to say she is absolutely KILLING it.
“I stand out because I know there’s no one else like me. There’s no one that feels the vibe and just gets lost in the music the way that I do!”
She may be aiming high but Yinka's feet are firmly on the ground, giving a Ted Talk entitled “The Myth of Escaping the Ghetto”, and she continuing to build her rep as a queen by hosting a stage at AfroRepublic 2018. She also runs her eponymous blog featuring everything from music & culture to lifestyle, fashion & beauty.
