TV47’s Digital fashion reporter, Shanniq Monicah, emerged third in the 2019 Bloggers Association of Kenya (BAKE) Awards held at the Utalii Hotel on Saturday.
Shanniq, who writes entertainment, lifestyle, fashion, and current affairs articles for TV47 Digital, was nominated for the second time in the ‘fashion and style’ category.
On both occasions, Shanniq was nominated for writing her fashion blog, ‘the fashion mobster’. In the 2019 BAKE Awards, the TV47 reporter came third after ‘fashionablestepmum’ and ‘curveswithstyle’. A total of 1,376 people voted for her blog.
“It was a good feeling to be recognized for a second time. Even though I didn’t win, I will keep blogging and I know my hard work will pay off one day in God’s timing,” Shanniq said.
Through her blog, Shanniq explores her love for fashion by experimenting with different cultures and fashion trends. She also advises young ladies on how to pair different outfits with different types of shoes, bags, hairstyles, and accessories.
Shanniq has also featured various public figures on her ‘Fashion Notebook’, such as NRG radio presenter, Mwalimu Rachel and TV personality Betty Kyallo.
Her blog has drawn the attention of mainstream publications and TV stations. She has appeared on the fashion columns of Pulse Magazine, The Nairobian, Daily Nation’s My Network, People Daily, Eve Woman, and The Standard Newspaper’s Hashtag.
