MYRA MAIMOH IS HERE TO EMPOWER AND ENRICH SOULS IN A ‘UNIQ’ WAY.

MYRA MAIMOH IS HERE TO EMPOWER AND ENRICH SOULS IN A ‘UNIQ’ WAY.

There’s always something consistently refreshing about Myra Maimoh’s sound and that’s its ability to uplift the spirit. In an industry where all we hear about is chicks here…money there…bad belle everywhere, Myra’s message and soothing voice nicely take us away from the chaos and bring us to the core of what’s most important. I’m sweetly reminded that even though these issues may be prevalent in our society, empowerment, enrichment and all-day-everyday positivity are just the tools I need for a better society. Her message communicates with the heart, her sound uplifts the spirit…no wonder Celia Faussart of Les Nubians called her the Cameroonian Jill Scott and Franck Biyong, artists who passionately use their music and diverse sounds to spread social consciousness.   With her latest album ‘Uniq’, one is instantly serenaded with that familiar uplifting feeling. To better understand this, you have to read the review below which gives you a detailed breakdown of each song.   SIX WAYS TO HANDLE ADVERSITY, APPRECIATE IDENTITY & CELEBRATE TRIUMPH WITH MYRA MAIMOH   Myra’s sophomore album Uniq is now released and available on all major online platforms and it is quite the masterpiece for many different reasons. Very rarely does an artist try to, and succeed in accomplishing so many things in a 6 song EP.   We are taken to the very essence of who the artist is, and what her musical range and influences have been. A marked departure from her first album, Uniq tells a compelling story of power through adversity and identifying one’s voice and identity; you get the feeling Myra is singing as much to herself...

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.

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.  ...
