Meet Keni

Can’t believe I am still writing ‘Myself’ essays 😀

My name is Maukeni Padiki Ribeiro, most people call me Keni. I am a Christian girl who talks too much and loves good music. Worn glasses since I was 9, so yes I am a certified geek. I am right-handed and left-footed! We are a rare species😊

I have had my head buried in books for as long as I can remember, and it is an honour for me to write stories that people can enjoy. I am an unrepentant romantic and an unashamed foodie 🙂

Away from that, I am a woman who loves to write, sing and talk about food. A plot to kidnap me should probably include chocolate and fried plantain.

I am a Global Shaper of the World Economic Forum, Accra Hub and I am passionate about communication and content creation. I write customized wedding vows and creative pieces for couples with Vows by Kenikodjo.

I started this blog in October 2014, mainly because I promised my friends that I would move from just putting up Facebook statuses to doing something more concrete with my writing skills…so here we are! This is my big step. I hope these stories are much fun for you to read as they are for me to write.

Other things I do that you should check out:

  10. Wow……I’m hardly a social media person so it explains how I’m discovering your blog lol. I must say I have been awed by every single post I’ve read so far. In two days I have completed 8to5 and Knowthyman with all the articles in between (hope my boss doesn’t see this lol). I think you are an amazing writer and I love the way you interact with your readers, in fact I have joined the Kenikodjo family by force. Thanks and cheers to more interesting reads


  11. Hi Keni

    I have been smiling since I visited this website (still smiling whiles typing this though) and that’s just morning. I kinda love writing so Eli Sabblah mentioned you and what you do. It is amazing and you are amazing, goodness (Your ‘100 things that make me happy’ makes me feel like I know you already, we have so much in common, lol) Anyway, thanks for blessing us with your skill and talent. I’ve got to go, I’m itching to start reading my first Keni series. Stay blessed Keni! 🙂
