Founder and CEO
Christina Funke Tegbe is the founder and creative visionary behind 54 Thrones. An African luxury beauty brand inspired by the richness, diversity, and culture of the continent and its people.
A southern-American childhood rooted with the cultural essence of Nigeria, Christina grew up experiencing the true and sacred beauty of Africa. Empowered by her Nigerian aunties who would indulge her with tubs of shea butter sent via Nigeria and moved by the ingenuity and innovation across the motherland, she answered the call to share the heart and soul of Africa with the world. In 2016, she left a career in corporate consulting to launch her luxury beauty brand.
With 54 Thrones, Christina aspires to spread the message that “Made in Africa is Luxury”. Determined to share the beauty and authenticity of an Africa often not seen, she partners with passionate artisans who handcraft the luxuriously skincare rich products that make up her brand.
