FAB REVIEW: D’banj’s Album “D’Kings Men” Reviewed on The New York Times

The artist formerly known as the Koko Master a.k.a D’banj a.k.a Bangalee is currently enjoying the support of the media at home and abroad in a bid to sustain his positioning in the African Music industry. As you may know, D’banjs’ name readily comes to mind when you attempt to name the number one artist from Africa and he intends to keep it that way.

The Nigerian pop star’s latest album D’King’s Men was reviewed on The New York Times on Friday 13th September 2013.

See below:

D’Banj is one of the great African pop stars of the past decade, a charming singer but, more important, a savvy showman. For years, this Nigerian singer was at the center of the Mo’ Hits Records stable, but now he’s struck out on his own with a new label and the compilation “D’Banj Presents DKM (D’ King’s Men)” (DB/G.O.O.D./Sony).

It’s an alluring contemporary pop album with an emphasis on king-size dance music, like the militarily efficient “Don’t Tell Me Nonsense” and the flash of last year’s excellent smash hit “Oliver Twist.” D’Banj is also a savvy synthesizer of the old and new Africa, as on “Nous les Meilleurs (We the Best),” a duet with the Congolese singer Fally Ipupa. But really, D’Banj has his eye on the world; he’s signed to Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music imprint, and the lovely “Scape Goat (The Fix)” features what’s certainly the most cheerful version of Mr. West you’ll hear this year, or any year.

NIAN-Spring-Summer-2014-cover

Maybe it is the Turk in me, or maybe it is the soft silk fabric that floated ether-like as models stormed the runway, Nihan Buruk seemed to have brought a little bit of Istanbul with NIAN Spring/Summer 2014 collection to a rainy London on the first day of London Fashion Week.

Styled by Nesley Nazari, NIAN Spring/Summer 2014 collection featured strong androgynous lines with sleeveless blazers paired with swimsuits juxtaposed with fluttering soft tailoring in delightful print dresses, asymmetrical skirts and short shorts in lime green, cerulean blue and off-white and deep blue paired wirh panelled blouses – all accessorised with white winged heels I’d so want in my closet.

Kiss and Tell: My Holiday in Malaga

malaga10

Summer is all about foreign countries, people, food and most importantly the sun, sea and sand sex. Yes, lots of tanning time and looking super cute on the beach while scoping out the hotties, looking for a possible holiday fling or quite simply a young hottie who is DTF. I went on holiday with my girls ready for a good time, lots of cocktails and dancing and well if a hot guy came my way it would be unlikely that I would turn him away. Tanned Spanish boys – that’s all I’m saying.

malaga12

Malaga is where we were for ten days and I can honestly say it didn’t disappoint. Not a typical full blown out partying holiday, me and my girls got the best out of both chilling and partying. Malaga, a simply beautiful place, provided us with gorgeous weather, beautiful scenery and a fun Spanish vibe. From street singers to cheap mojitos, open mic nights, sexy people men and shisha bars Malaga has it all – I for one was pretty content.

Our days consisted of being very Spanish, having ‘siestas’ then hitting the beach, tanning it up (yes that included me the black girl – like I needed a tan humph) or hiring a pedalo for some water fun to having down time just enjoying the weather reading a book. Our nights on the other hand were all about strong cocktails and dirty cheap (good) wine, hitting the dance floor and twerking (I’m kidding, Miley Cyrus kinda put us off the whole thing), getting chatted up and having to speak ridiculous Spanglish, although more often than not we’d resort to the international language of just making out – simple.

A holiday romance is not what I was personally looking for, I just wanted a good time, and I had one. Mm Spanish boys – again need I say more. Okay, okay I know what you’re all thinking one of us or all of us did the dirty with one of the ‘muy caliente chicos’… yeah no that didn’t happen. We’re good girls like that. I mean mum’s the word.

PS. to weave lovers, ocean water and weaves are NOT a good mix! I had to learn this the hard way.
