About me

With a total audience of over 60,000 across her social media, Chidera Eggerue - popularly known as The Slumflower is an award-winning blogger, speaker and creative director of vacation rental company Innclusive, whilst doubling as a presenter for The MOBO Awards - Europe’s largest urban music awards show! The Slumflower has broken barriers through public speaking - including her most recent talk she had at the House of Commons where she boldly discussed how black women are perceived in society, which went viral after being shared by ITV News! After being flown out by the U.S. Embassy for 12 days to explore American values, she has not stopped showing that through tackling many important issues affecting black women today, she can still mix her business activities seamlessly with inspiration and having fun. Through taking up predominantly white spaces in media and television, The Slumflower has aspirations of encouraging young, black women to take charge of their careers whilst maintaining their full identities.
