Bringing the series off the screen, aspire.tv will be giving away one curated lifestyle box a week to a lucky viewer.
“Aspire is the perfect home for Unboxed with Nikki Chu,” said Melissa Ingram, vice president and channel manager, Aspire. “This design series is evidence of our commitment to black culture and urban lifestyle and vividly demonstrates our unique programming offerings.
