I wanted to introduce you guys to two amazing Namibian friends of mine who are about to take the fashion world and design and modelling world by storm.Literally.
First up is one of my bestest friends here in NY .Her name is Christina Da Rocha and she may represent her beautiful country of Namibia at the annual Miss Africa USA contest.She's already in the leas as far as votes are concerned ,but I would like you all to support her by voting for her.Go to the site and search for Christina Da Rocha,or CLICK HERE
Tina is an active founding member of Club Africa Alive at WCC,which is an organization/club that was started to eradicate the negative images and stereotypes of africans and to support african causes like save darfur .So as you can see,she would be a great representative of her country and a deserving winner .
Next up is another dear friend of mine Hileni Shitenya Mwiiyale .Shes also from Namib and has her own fashion blog .Plus ,shes an upcoming designer so u better watch this space beacuse I will be interviewing her very soon for Jamati Tv.
Here's the link Nam -Afrique.
Aren't they both FAB?Gotta love Namib!
Everyone's favorite video vixen ethiopian Angel Lola Love sat down for a video interview where she basically popped off on Karrine "superhead".The video vixen turned rapper (she is signed to 50 cents label)was quoted as saying ,
"The perceptions that people have of me and most video models are the total opposite of reality. They see things from the outside. So they have no idea about what goes on behind the scenes with the ones that do this to benefit themselves in a positive way".
"There are a lot of different reasons why I could never ride with the choices that ‘Superhead” made. I feel as though she played a major part in people really believing that all video vixens are just like her. Which is TOTALLY wrong!"
LOLA LUV On SUPERHEAD.
Okay ,Jordy Smith is my new celeb crush.He did what is being called "the most high-performance maneuver ever executed on a wave".(Grind Tv).
the 21 year old south african pro-surfer did a rodeo flip and here;s some video footage that you Must see.Im in love!!
JORDY SMITH does Rodeo.
Nigerian us-based football player Wale Ogunyele has apparently left his long-time girlfriend sanaa Lathan for a "friend" that he has been seeing on the DL for 4 years.Her name is Stephanie and is a para-legal in Miami.According to a source ,Wale would meet up with his mistress everytime he was in Miami.They have been "seen" on vacations,including her bday party.Its pretty interesting seeing as she was named one of Ebony magzine's sexy singles of 2009 .Don't feel bad for Sanaa though.Apparently she's been hooking up with actor and singer Tyrese.
Apparently the prez of senegal has put Akon in his "black book" because the "Lonely" singer didn't show up at a meeting that the two had set up.The meeting was supposed to be a press conference where the two would discuss the third festival or world black arts that should be happening in senegal this year.Akon attended a meeting at the UN in Ny some months ago to discuss this concert with diplomats and ambassadors and this conference was supposed to be a way of letting the public know the details of the event.Not a good look Akon.If I was the president,I would tell him to refund me for the ticket (just saying).
Oh and in an interview with Rap Up magazine ,Akon compared himself to the beatles.When asked how he is received whenever he arrives in Africa for performances, "It's like when the Beatles first came to the U.S times 10.Ridiculous"...yeah right Akon.
Oh and he says he gets mistaken for Tyrese all the time.Yeah right.
Heres a video of Akon talking about how MJ inspired him to be a better father.
