MUSIC: PRESS RELEASE FOR ‘MR JOHN’ AND PHOTOS.

When I got this press release from Sister Wisdom’s camp, I was more than eager to post especially after listening to the new single. ‘Mr John’ is a deep soulful song featuring singer/songwriter/producer Johnny Drille. This is a song every guy’s searching soul has been longing to embrace…that’s all I can say for now. The single will be released in some days to come so please be patient but don’t hold back your excitement ¬†ooo…anyway, do read the press release below to get a deeper insight into what to expect from the song. Here’s the press release was ‘Mr John’ The attractions (and of course distractions) resident in this physical world is, as allowed per individual, a strong determinant of the quality of life that ‘self’ has access to function in. Take love for instance, a heavy influence for building and breaking worlds. This singular, one syllabled, four letter word, self existing from the beginning of time, traveled through eras, handed down to generations, and is still very present today, influencing actions or inactions as your case permits. In #SongLikeAMovie #Part1, the dynamic duo of Sister Wisdom ft. Johnny drille present a creative conversation between Agape and Mr John, where ‘lady’, represents a distraction from true love (Agape) and an attraction to fleeting moments (physical world), and ‘Mr. John’, representing one desirous of Love but searching in the wrong place. …Eventually, we all come to a crossroad in life where the influence of our circumstances position us to take a decision, but then I ask; Can Love find you? Are you in love…with True Love? “Agape influences me to...

SPORTS SPICE:BEST OUTFIT AT THE OLYMPICS 2016 GOES TO CAMEROON.

From BCC,Essence online to Global Grind, media outlets are still buzzing about the outfit worn by the Cameroonian delegation to this year’s¬†Olympic¬†opening ceremony in Rio. Cameroon is blessed with so many tribes and there’s a traditional outfit for each tribe or region. The outfit the delegation wore is called Toghu and it’s from the North West region of Cameroon. My dad always used to ¬†wear his toghu attire with so much pride. Apart from a pair of white socks and well polished black shoes that always attracted the sun rays, It consisted of a wrap skirt that was worn underneath the big black thick cotton ankle length gown embroidered(using mostly white,red,green and yellow threads) with gongs and other traditional symbols and overflowing sleeves. I’d watch my dad fold his sleeves and rest them on both shoulders , revealing his immaculate white singlet underneath. Then over his head and on his neck, he’d carefully place his traditional deep purple and white glass beaded neckless. Then the knitted colourful hat(Bamenda countri cap) would be placed nicely on his head. He’d then collect his the woven bag with the map of Cameroon on it and place across his left shoulder to his right hip, then the traditional ‘horn’ cup for palmwine drinking would be place nicely in the bag with some few Kola(cola nuts) Once the ritual of putting together the toghu outfit was complete, dad would seal everything with a lavish spray of his special perfume with a strong but soothing smell which always still lingered long after he had left. Standing in all his full toghu glory and holding his...

Before you start asking…yeah it is a big deal. Signed to New Bell Music, Reniss is one of the top female singers in Cameroon. There’s no doubt she’s got an amazing voice but what I like most about her is style and ohhh…her gorgeous dark skin tone and electrifying smile.

THE WIDE LEG TRENDZ: LAURA IKEJI VS MARTHE ACHO VS PRISSY SAVVY VS KELLY ROWLAND.

Every girl needs a wide leg pant in her closet…in every colour if it were up to me. In my mind, nothing more spells elegance than a well-tailored colourful wide leg pant. Today it’s all about the elegant wide trendz featuring the mustard pant worn by Nigerian fashion blogger Laura Ikeji, Cameroonian fashion blogger Marthe Acho, Ghanaian blogger Prissy Savvy and American singer Kelly Rowland. They all have been spotted wearing the colourful wide-legged pant and I must say these ladies might just possess some kind of telepathic powers because their co-ordinations are very similar or is it just a case of great fashion minds thinking alike? Laura Ikeji of www.lauraikeji.com paired her mustard wide leg pant with a cream long sleeve shirt and a beaded neckless. Marthe Acho of www.mamichoux.com¬†paired hers with a black and white pokka dot sleeveless blouse. Priscilla A of¬†www.prissysavvy.com¬†paired hers with a white and black checkered sleeveless blouse and also with a cream long sleeve shirt and a bow-styled gold neckless. Kelly Rowland also paired hers with a cream sleeveless shirt blouse.   These ladies brought so much pop of colour and elegance with their wide leg mustard pants. It brought back some painful memories for me though. Now let me tell you the story about my wide leg mustard pant. At some point in my childhood, wide leg pants(or big foot trousers as they were commonly known) were all the rave and more. Be it long, three quarters or knee-length, I always admired my big sister and her friends in them. I couldn’t wait to go to university oneday and wear them in...

VIDEO:SAUTI SOL AND UPPER HILL BOYS USE THEIR VOICES TO CALL FOR AN END TO SCHOOL FIRE PERIL.

Kenyan band Sauti Sol is known across Africa and the world for its rumba-pop sound but most importantly for the melodious voices of its members. Recently the Upper Hill Secondary School boys were not only excited to see the Kenyan stars at their school but also took part in singing with the band an acapella version of one of Sauti Sol’s popular singles ‘Kuliko Jana’ off their latest album. With the school burning crisis sweeping across Kenya since June, it was only fair for the role models to take some time off their busy schedules to lend their voices. With Upper Hill being their alma mater and also being one of over 120 schools affected, it was only necessary to be part of this. I hope the government, educators, parents and students can come together and put an end to this. This video is sure to brighten your week. I’ve died and gone to acapella heaven. Watch the video...

PEARL THUSI JOINS THE CAST OF QUANTICO.

Africans are taking Hollywood by storm and we can’t just keep calm. While Edi Gathegi kept us at the edge of our seats as a mean, sleek highly paid assassin in Blacklist Season 4, Dayo Okeniyi who plays Detective Michael Loman alongside Jennifer Lopez in new cop series Shades Of Blue, reminds us of why we should always think before we pull that trigger. Lupita Nyong’o and Danai Gurira were recently unveiled as cast members in Marvel’s yet to be released Black Panther movie…all hail Mama Africa. Now is the turn of Pearl Thusi to join the league of distinguished African actors in Hollywood. The South African actress has been cast in season 2 of ABC’s drama series Quantico. She will play the role of Dayana Mampesi, a driven, disciplined, type-A lawyer. The Harvard graduate joined her parents’ Boston firm after working with an NGO for two years. Being an intelligent lady who graduated at the top of her class, Dayana still struggles to fit in. The 29-year-old Durban-born actress will be joining Indian actress Priyanka Chopra who plays Alex Parrish and Palestinian-Egyptian Yasmine Al Massri who plays identical twins Nimah and Raina Amin. Big congrats for the great stride Pearl Thusi. Season 2 premieres on September 25 on ABC. We can’t wait. Here’s a picture of Pearl on the set of Quantico.  ...

MICHELLE OBAMA:THE FIRST LADY OF COOL.

With all the craziness going on in the world right now, it’s so refreshing to see FLOTUS, Missy Elliott and James Corden injecting some normalcy to the rest of the world. In the latest episode of James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke, Michelle Obama turned the tour of the White House into a fun jamming session for the Late Late Show host. It even got better when they picked up Missy Elliott along the way. And you all know you can’t have Missy Elliott partake in a karaoke session and not blast off ¬†the world famous ‘Get Ur Freak On’ anthem. Isn’t this the coolest video right now? Love it. Michelle Obama is the coolest FLOTUS ever. Even Melania can’t plagiarise this level of coolness....

MEN WITH SWAG: DAVID GINOLA.

Most 49-year-old men drown in baggy suits and machete ties…not David Ginola. It an-all-black-everything for the French former football player during a nightout at the Chiltern Firehouse. The former Newcastle player was spotted wearing a black blazer over a black shirt and stone-washed black skinny jeans…yeah…skinny jeans. Loving the grey loafers. I can’t lie, I’ve been crushing on this man since ’95 and he just keeps getting better with age. The salt and pepper hair makes him even more sexy. Note to men: It would be nice for men to cut their coats according to their sizes(not more than their sizes) and show some shape. I’m sure women would love...
