Vincy girl and award-winning former reporter/anchor Nneka Elliot is set to launch “NNEKA”, a digital lifestyle talk show catering to the Caribbean diaspora on April 4th, 2017. The new series promises interviews with celebrities and influencers of Caribbean descent and will air every Tuesday at noon on Nneka’s YouTube channel.
Hosted by Nneka herself, the show focuses on fashion, beauty, food, health, and culture through a Caribbean lens. Season one guests include: YouTube star Marlon Palmer, comedian Jay Martin, success coach Karlyn Percil, Sandy Lion Brand Ambassador for DAYA by Zendaya and many more.
As a Canadian born in Quebec, raised in St. Vincent and the Grenadines and living in Toronto, Nneka has always felt that she, like many others in the Caribbean diaspora, has a unique lived experience.
“I wanted to create a show that people who live at that same intersection that I do could relate to. I wanted the show to be something unlike the Caribbean focused shows I’ve seen. Yes I’m going to interview reggae and soca artists, and other celebrities of Caribbean origin, but we’ll also talk fashion, beauty, health, food, culture using a Caribbean lens.”
