Zewdy introduces us to ethio-soul fusion

Written by Shirlene Brown | April 2, 2013 | Leave a Comment

We don’t hear enough of the contemporary artists of Ethiopian descent who do an excellent job of blending contemporary western genres with a traditional Ethiopian rhythm. There is Nhatty Man who melds rap and ethio-beats into  a funky hip-hop dance/rap genre which is both unique and exciting.  Wayna Wondwossen is more contemporary R&B, and very talented in her own right.

Oh Mama, Those MAMAs!

Written by Shirlene Brown | October 23, 2009 | Leave a Comment

The MTV Africa Music Awards (MAMAs)  with Zain were off the chain this year.   Wyclef Jean was in the house with several of the best artists in contemporary African music today.  Akon was one of the guest performers and the audience was treated to a class-A performance.

For some reason though, Akon and Wyclef stripped to their skivvies.  Guess it was all in good fun, but I wonder how many parents made their children turn off the television.  It is also a surprise that there was no uproar in the local media about it.   Kenya must be getting more permissive.

L’homme derrière Jamhuri Wear fait la Une du Magazine “Arise”

Written by Prudence Chauke | September 28, 2009 | Leave a Comment

Depuis son arrivée en 2003 dans le monde de la mode à New York, Jeffrey Kimathi s’est avéré être une force irrépressible qui est en train de gagner beaucoup plus d’ampleur dans le milieu, que ce qui a été prédit 7 années auparavant quand il venait tout juste de commencer sa carrière.
 
jamhuriDes années plus tard, la carrière de Kimathi est indiscutable et a connu une forte croissance allant d’une ligne de t-shirts à une marque qui a de plus en plus à offrir avec des “hoodies” et des accessoires.  C’est un homme dont la détermination et l’effort ont attiré l’attention de P-Diddy, Ludacris et Jay-Z qui est un grand fan de la marque. Nos représentants d’Afrique à savoir K’Naan et Akon, ont été vus à plusieurs reprises porter la marque Jamhuri.
 
 Où que vous pouvez aller dans tous les faubourgs, dans toutes les différentes régions du pays, vous êtes sûr de trouver des fans jeunes et moins jeunes, qui portent les vêtements Jamhuri et les incorporent dans le monde de leur mode.
 
 Cet homme n’est pas un suiveur, mais un chef de fil en ouvrant la voie aux arts africains à New York et au-delà. Récemment, Kimathi a fait la une du magazine ARISE, qui  a représenté sa marque. La présentation de Jamhuri  est brillante et une premiere dans l’histoire!
