YVONNE AKEBA was born in London, Uk. Dubbed "The Dynamo of Creative Expression" by those who have seen her perform. Be warned, you will not leave one of her shows without feeling moved in some way. Her energy is infectious, her smile exudes Love... Writing Poetry and Songs seriously from the age of 12, these are just two aspects of her talent. With appearances as a dancer as p...art of the Caribbean Cultural Organisation on TV AM in her youth. Fashion Designer, Hairstylist. As an Artiste she does it all. Not one for labels, she simply states " I'm just being me, documenting my journey along th
