About Us


Essence of Asabea was founded by Asabea Angus in 2019, out of a need to express her creativity which reflected her African heritage in a positive light.

As a second-generation British born Ghanaian and Jamaican, Kisha grew up in south London where she struggled with her identity.

Growing up among her peers there were many negative connotations associated with being African and this had a huge impact on her self-esteem.

Now as a mother of two young children, Essence of Asabea was created to showcase the beauty of her Ghanaian heritage; and instil a sense of pride in the heritage of Ghanaian names so that not only will her children feel proud, but also those looking to reconnect with their roots whether from the continent or diaspora.
