MUSIC: 'Boasty' by ft. Wiley x Sean Paul x Stefflon Don Ft. Idris Elban

Looks like my boo Idris in jumping more into the music game as a rapper, with his feature in the hot new track 'Boasty' by Wiley x Sean Paul x Stefflon Don. It has always been known that Idris is heavy in the music industry as a DJ, however it's dope to see him switch it up by rapping on a track. As for the song itself, I'm really loving the mixture of the UK grime with dancehall vibe. Also, the young boy playing the main character in the music video is super cute!

BEAUTY: DJ Cuppy Named Maybelline 'IT Girl' For Nigeria & Ghana

Congrats to DJ Cuppy for being named the 'It Girl' brand ambassador for beauty brand Maybelline for Nigeria & Ghana. It's great to see an international beauty brand diversifying its media representation with more women of colour and being more inclusive in their global reach.

Some may seeing it as them jumping on the bandwagon of other brands that have been successful in their focus on women of colour. However I believe it is still a positive step forward and a testament to brands realizing the buying power of women of color. I welcome this as it provides more opportunities for women of colour to establish a larger stake in the billion dollar beauty industry.

FEELIN' IT OR NAH?: Waje at the 'She Is' Movie Premiere

A few days ago was the premiere of the film 'She is' which is co-produced by Nigerian musicians Waje and Omawumi. This was a star studded event at the Filmhouse Cinema in Lagos, with celebrity attendees gracing the red carpet in looks following in line with the premiere's fairytale dress code theme.

One look that stood out to me was Waje's, in particular her accessorizing her gown with a jeweled white fanny pack and a white beret. Although quite unique parings, I'm a bit on the fence with this one...

MUSIC: 30 Current Top Ghanaian Songs to Add to Your Afrobeats Playlist

I have been meaning to share this ever since I came back from my vacation in Ghana!

As a big time African music lover, or shall I say Afrobeats head (if this is even a thing lol), every year when I go to Ghana I make sure to pay close attention to what songs are poppin'. Although I always try to keep up with the latest and hottest Afrobeats songs from afar in Toronto, there are some limitations to what you can be exposed to online. I find there to be a major difference in ones ability to sense what songs are hot when they are actually in Ghana. You experiences first hand what songs are played the most at parties and on the local radio, what songs artists perform the most at shows as well as feel the crowds reaction each time a song is played. These are things simply listening to songs on YouTube cannot give you.

Furthermore, whenever I get back from vacation in Ghana I have some friends that always ask me to share a playlist of the current songs that were big in GH. Therefore, I thought why not share this on the blog as well!...

FASHION: Beyonce Wears Africn Fashion Brand EnaGancio Fashions Found on Esty

Okaaayyy Beyonce! I see you! You are slaying that suit girl!

While attending Swiss Beatz’s Dreamweavers exhibition in LA last month, Beyonce came through with a show stopping look. Furthermore, this was not just any look, rather this was quite special is she wore and African print fashion piece by Nigerian American designer Ena Udemba from her fashion line EnaGancio Fashions. Moreover, what makes this even more extraordinary is the fact that Beyone and her stylist Zerin Akers found and handpicked Ena's fashion brand on Esty!

I just loved the fact that they are supporting black brands and chose to work with a lesser known, up and coming African brand...
