Welcome to “#WorkFlow”, a weekly column where I give you all the juiciest ‘gist’ of what’s been going on in the industry, especially some reports we missed during the week. That is, the ‘news’ news and the ‘not-so-news’ news.
Did You Know?
Let’s kick off this week’s episode with a fashion face-off. In the left corner, we’ve got a vivacious budding style star, EbonyLife TV presenter, Zainab Balogun. And, in the right corner, we’ve got confirmed style star, Ghanaian songstress, Efya. What did they both rock? – a red sequined dress styled by Bubu of IamIsigo. Who killed it?
“I know what you like!” Yes, you do Toni Tones and whether you are rocking your signature bob, this fierce blonde look or your bouncy bohemian curls, you’re a star in our eyes. 😉
The ‘Kukere’ master, Iyanya (yes, I know “Kukere” is well on its way out) is starting up another fire with his most recent single, “Le Kwa Ukwu“. And, while he was out in the UK, he decided to shoot some yummy visuals for the single. I’m sure it’s got a love story angle from these snapshots. I hope Sesan can really bring the heavy tune to life. Check these out!
In other news, he was out last night with soccer star, Bacary Sagna (He plays for English Premier League soccer team – Arsenal) for Jay-Z‘s UK concert. I hope he learns a thing or two from ‘Hov’ on how to throw a thrilling show.
They were sitting pretty high up though, watching the throne.
Toyin Lawani of Tiannah Styling is a fashion designer that loves designer clothing so much that she’s got her boo, matching designer outfits with her. Now on holiday in Dubai with her beau, she shows how much she’s definitely got bit by the Versace bug. Check this!
‘Arab Money swag’, huh?
Nollywood Superstar Mercy Johnson is looking hot and back in shape on the set of a new movie. Oh! Mercy, mercy, mercy!
Have you gotten a look at Julius & Ibiere Agwu‘s new child? It’s a boy and his name is Zadok Chibuike Julius Agwu.
One thing that has gotten the inter-webs abuzz is Nigerian celebrities smoking shisha. I don’t know why it seems to be causing a ruckus since it’s a legal recreation but I know a few of them who are very fond of the ‘Arabian’ pastime. Check this!
Soundcity VJ Moet Abebe
“Fire on the dancefloor, all the girls dey dance while Wizzy dey sing oh… Roll it ee oh! Roll it!”
It’s about time this song had a music video. “Roll It” was one of the biggest club jams off the “Empire Mates State of Mind” compilation album and it seems the group has finally decided to pull out all the stops to get the visuals done; even Akon had to make a cameo for the banger shot in Ghana.
