Today we introduce you to Peekalomy (Peeks) Kikalomy. Peeks was born in Scotland in the United Kingdom to a Scottish mother and Nigerian father. Her mother is from Glasgow whilst her father is from Surulare, Lagos, Nigeria and of the Yoruba Tribe.


Peeks started her career in the entertainment industry 10 years ago at the age of 16 as part of a girl music band called Tommi. They where signed to Sony Records and went on to have a top 12 hit with a song called ‘Like What’ http://youtu.be/p8w6r-UuOL0. After the band separated Peeks began her interest in web and graphic design which she enjoyed whilst at school. At the same time the music Hip hop artist/producer of her band Overlord X had just also moved from making music to creating music videos for artist. Peeks love for music was still there so Peeks took part in helping Overlord X by doing makeup and styling for the music videos.

As time went on she forged a partnership with Overlord X to create and style professional images for brands and corporate companies. Peeks would style and do make and hair but also modelled for the brands whilst Overlord X would Do the photography and film making to the final edit. The duo’s partnership paid off as they went on to work with brands such as Armani, Paks cosmetics, Baby Phat, Nike, Sean John, Mixed roots, Apple Bottom, Punkyfish, Viper London, Pastry Shoes, Triple Halo, Spearmint Rhino, Rumfest, London Fashion Week, the list goes on.

Peeks started experimenting with her hair and makeup so as to have a more interesting look for her photos. Many girls that she met on the set would ask how she got into the business or how she did her hair or where she bought her clothes.


At the same time YouTube tutorials where getting popular so Peeks started the MO-AM Network blog and YouTube channel, a place where she shared her fashion and lifestyle experiences. To her amazement after 5 months her social network following had started to grow and grow into the tens and thousands. Her YouTube channel currently sits at 63,000 subscribers and over 4 million views.
