She says, “Ohema Ohene caught my attention when I was looking for sneakers with African print. Most of the African printed shoes I had seen rather looked messy. Ohemaa Ohene proved me otherwise. You could say that her collection is a combination of Western fashion and African print. The overall style is very elegant. I say: take a peek and judge yourself.”
