South African Artists Lack Realism

I read +Times LIVE this morning and came across a headline which reads " DJ Black Coffee in new album art copy cat row" and I was not surprised at all because most South African artist lack authenticity and are always inspired by american artists.

I mean looking at DJ Black Coffee`s album, one can see that it looks the same as that of US artist Ledisi`s 2011 album. The South African DJ did not only copy the art work, he also copied the album name titled Pieces Of Me. This is the same DJ who is booked for +Coachella 2016.


There are a lot of Hip Hop artists in South Africa who do that, take Ricky Rick for example, the guy released his debut album Family Values with the same pose to that of US rapper The Game, this makes me question their talent. 

Some of these Hip Hop artists actually translate american rap songs into their mother tongue (Vernacular). When I listened to Anatii featuring AKA`s song titled The Saga it just reminded me of IloveMakonnen featuring Drake`s song Club Going Up On A Tuesday. The list is endless, WTF(Witness The Funk), Casper Nyovest are some of the artists who are guilty.

Elvovo Dirango did the same this with his album cover, the guy copied Jay Z. This is so embarrassing. 

Artists like +Simphiwe Dana, rappers Pro Kid and K.O should teach them a thing or two.

New York Fashion Week: Diane Von Furstenberg

I liked +Diane Von Furstenberg show because it was all things print and florals. Furstenberg said the collection was about celebrating truth, nature and freedom. She redefines beauty and paints her own destiny.

Rihanna host star studded New York Fashion Week Party

The madness begins were the streets of New York are filled with fashionistas, models, bloggers and celebrities all in the name of fashion.

+New York Fashion Week kicked off and will be showcasing the Spring 2016 collection by different designers.

During this time, New York night life is abuzz and +Rihanna teamed up with her friends at +PUMA and +Samsung USA to host her own party at +New York Fashion Week which was filled with popular faces and about 100 of her loyal navy members.

Regardless of the rain, people crowded a blocked off area of NYC street and danced to the performance of Young Thug and Travis $cott.
