Kelechi Okafor is a writer, presenter, influencer and tour de force in challenging how we think about race and femininity in tandem and is a regular media contributor.


Her podcast “Say Your Mind” is centred around mental well-being.  Kelechi has appeared on the BBC 3 show, Work It – which draws on her experience as a fitness expert and her work in pole dancing and twerking as a form of enabling for women to embrace their bodies without sexualisation, particularly with victims of abuse.


Kelechi is also published in the illustrious anthology, IT’S NOT OK TO FEEL BLUE edited by Scarlett Curtis, and her short story is included in the WHO’S LOVING YOU anthology, published by Orion Books in 2021.


Kelechi hosted the episode Noughts + Crosses on “Obsessed With….” (the BBC Sounds companion podcast to the BBC1 prime time show) talking in and around Malorie Blackman’s best-selling book and its transition from page to screen – listen here.
