YW COVERSTAR: EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH EBANGHA NJANG.

She can easily be confused for a model with her striking looks and her signature androgynous fabulous style. So…are these some of the factors that make Ebangha Njang standout? It was her media presence that first caught my attention. On Facebook and Twitter, she was always going hard, promoting Cameroonian artists. It was really refreshing to see the love and support she was pouring into the Cameroon music industry. How could one not notice? Around the time we were gearing up for our next Coverstar feature, I received a message from Ebangha “Hello I’ve been following your blog for a while now. I think y’all amazing.” At that moment, I felt she was a genie and had just granted my wish because little did she know that she was at the top of the few people we had in mind to be featured on the next cover. We immediately took that as a sign and violà! YW’s latest coverstar. Yvonne Ebangha Njang was born and raised in Douala and Edéa respectively. Her dad( who worked with the Ministry of Agriculture) and her mum( a Housewife), instilled discipline and the fear of God in her and five siblings at very young ages. Being a close knit family, her childhood was filled with fun family times, including relaxing by the River Sanaga, watching favourite cartoons and attending church on Sundays. That makes for an exciting childhood, doesn’t it? But it wasn’t exactly the same when it came to her teenage years. “My teenage years didn’t mean much to me honestly. I know it’s hard to believe lol but i was a...

COVER STAR: YW INTERVIEW WITH TOOSHAI FACES.

COVER STAR: YW INTERVIEW WITH TOOSHAI FACES.

Meet the incredible Sinchang Cho. She’s the very talented MUA and beautician of Tooshai Faces. I’m a fan of Sinchang’s work. We had long hours of conversations over the phone in prep for this interview and each conversation left me feeling so empowered and proud. Proud of the woman she has become, the wife, the mother and most importantly the creative Makeup Artist and Beautician the nation and the rest of the world will soon get to know.Though she resisted several times, makeup always found a way to be front and centre in her life. With colleagues always complimenting her makeup, friends asking her to do their makeup and even working as the makeup artist on set of a Cameroonian movie and a music video as well gave Sinchang the boost to finally embrace her calling. Below is the interview we did with Tooshai Faces. Read, get to know her and spread the word.    YW: How and when did you get your start in makeup? TSF: I can’t exactly tell how I started, I happened to always have my makeup right or at least better than most other girls makeup. So I just remember as far back as when I was in Lower sixth in 1998, I started doing my brows, then others wanted me to do their brows, it wasn’t exactly what it is today but it looked good at the time. Then later on in University, I used to help my mom out at her hair Salon, she was a teacher but she owned a Hair salon and when we all got back from school, we’ll...

FABULOUS FASHION FRIDAY:RENISS IN AN AFRICAN PRINT TWO PIECE.

I love Reniss…her music…her voice and when it comes to her style, she’s always on point. Be it her puff knots(motobo) hairstyle or her sassy African print outfits, Reniss is always effortlessly unique. Even when she wears what everyone else is wearing, they look the same but she always stands out. My Fabulous Fashion Friday item is the beautiful African print two piece set the Cameroonian singer wore for her performance at Palais du Sport in Yaounde. She posted this picture of her in the burned mustard giraffe print maxi skirt and off the shoulder crop top on her Instagram page. From the hairstyle to the maxi, she looks absolutely fabulous, doesn’t she? There you have it bloghearts. Stay fashionable…stay fabulous.  ...
MEN WITH SWAG: DAVID GINOLA.

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...
