It is based on the tribe of a close childhood friend. The collection is named ‘KEKELI: EWE’ meaning: The light is here: Ewe. The Ewe people have names (Ŋkɔwo) with significant meanings which either portray the spirituality of the parents or the circumstances in which the child was born. Kekeli is an Ewe name.
