I can be your “FREAK”

I can’t wait for the premiere of Estelle’s video to her single “Freak, which airs tomorrow on her website www.estellemusic.com  I cam across the making of the video, and its HOT!  The whole idea of bringing out your inner freak to this techno pop, dance feel can really make a girl feel herself.  I knew I could here Estelle’s songs as a club banger.

Afro Chic enrolls in “Love University”

With Love in the air. . .February is a great time to express your love through music and why not do it with this mixtape done by DJ Marvalous entitled “Love University (Class of Infinity) “

The theme “Love University (Class of Infinity)” is perfect for songs that were compiled to make a harmonizing and rythmically in-tune mixtape.  Selections like Aaliyah “At Your Best”, Musiq Soulchild “Love”, Corrine Baiely Rae, Foreign Exchange, SWV and Lauryn Hill are amongst the many artists that will help you reach your tempos and stimulate your mind and your soul.  I feel that it’s dope that this mixtape has so much versatility and only brings happiness to this Love weekend also known as Valentine’s Day.  So kick back and take lessons at “Love University” with the one and only DJ Marvalous.

Raw Beauty, Raw Talent.

Ajuma Nasenyana is a gorgeous Kenyan supermodel that has a familiar face to America.  She was first spotted in the Miss Tourism Kenya Competition in 2003, where she was crown Miss Nairobi.

She was immediately scouted by Lyndsey McIntyre of Surazuri Modeling Agency where she took pictures for a portfolio that would soon change her life as a African Supermodel.  Ajuma was entered into the International Ford Modeling Agency where she won great recognition.  She was featured on France’s Gala magazine, New York Fashion Week, and Italian Fashion week.  Her beauty has allowed her to travel all over the world such as  London, Italy, Canada, Japan, and Spain.

Some may not view her as your typical supermodel, but I love her look.  She has raw beauty and her dark skin tone, features, and balled head really make her glow.

Look out for her!

My Sweetie- Wale

There was a lot of negativity towards the premiere of his “Pretty Girls” video last nite on twitter. I love Wale, I think he show great diversity towards music but that video was lame.  LOL check out this new release he put out called “My Sweetie” I love this song and the video is more interactive like it should be. oh yeah, Shout Out to the Nigerians!

Say it Loud. . .

I’m Black and I’m Proud!

 

just thought I’d celebrate Afros which started in the 1960’s, nothing has really changed, just evolved. I feel as though Afros were more appreciated back in this era than today.  It’s an act of liberation, free yourself and your hair from society. I still remember my mom’s can of afro sheen spray and the afro pik that she passed onto me last summer; That day marked my own freedom.  Whether your hair is straight, kinky, or curly you can too appreciate a hair moment in  Black History.
