In my ear: Valerie June, Lorde and Allie.

It’s been a while since I’ve done an “In my ear” post and that’s mainly because I haven’t been putting much effort into looking for new interesting artists. I’ve been consumed by commercially successful artists like Drake, Eminem and recently Beyonce. However I still love the “underdog”-using quotations since some of these underdogs now have…

Rih x We in JHB! (Diamonds World Tour)

Anyone that knows me knows I am a Rihanna Navy member through and through, no ifs ands or buts about it. I love that woman! I love her music, her style and the part of her personality that she exposes to us through social media. Yes even her use of crude words, she can do…

11th Annual Fête de la Musique

The 11th Fete de la Musique was held this past weekend at Botswana Craft in Gaborone. It was my first time attending this event though it has been going strong for some time. Therefore, I wasn’t sure what to expect or whether I’d enjoy myself at all but I went with an open mind. Entrance…

In my ear: Azealia Banks and K’Naan

Since I had quite a few artists in mind today I decided to do 2 In my ear posts according to genre. The first was pop/r&b and this one is hip-hop. First up is Azealia Banks who hails from Harlem NY in the USA. Don’t let that sweet college girl smile fool you, this young lady has…

In my ear: Rojo, Rebecca Ferguson and Emeli Sandé.

R&B is back! At least Rochelle Jordan or Rojo is bringing it back! I first listened to her randomly on Youtube after the release of her track “I don’t know how to feel”. Then eventually I discovered her independently released album Rojo. Her sound is reminiscent of 90s  R&B mixed with an  intergalactic edge (think ‘Prototype’ by Andre…

Whitney Houston (Aug 9, 1963 – Feb 11, 2012)

Yet again another talent gone too soon. Whitney arguably had one of the best voices our generation has had the pleasure of being entertained by. I don’t know a single person that did not at one point in their life try to keep up with her on her “I will always love you” remake or…

Videos: N*ggas in Paris & Bad Girls

So Jay-Z and Kanye West remembered that they have an album together that they should probably make more videos for. Here is their second video for the song N*ggas in Paris. I really love this song and was looking forward to the video. I must say it is really not what I expected though I’m…

In my ear: The Generationals

So yesterday I settled down to finally begin watching a series called Suits that a friend of mine was nice enough to send my way and during one of the scenes, a song playing in the background enticed my ears. After much googling and link hoping I discovered that the tune belonged to a song…

In my ear: 340ml

I rarely go out of my way to “discover” new artists or music for my listening pleasure, there’s too much of it out there so I tend to stick to the artists I know or artists that are forced down my throat by tv, radio or blogs. But after loving a song called “Midnight” by…

While I was living under a rock…..

….Kanye West debuted his women’s wear line. Seems logical for him to end up in fashion seeing as in terms of clothing he’s one of the more experimental males out there. He started off with his college kid look in 2004 and has gradually evolved into a weird mix of high fashion and hiphop in…
