NY Vice – Smooth Steering



The main thing that you have to remember on this journey is just be nice to everyone and always smile. Refreshingly, what was expected of her was the same thing that was expected of Lara Stone: to take a beautiful picture.

We woke reasonably late following the feast and free flowing wine the night before. After gathering ourselves and our packs, we headed down to our homestay family’s small dining room for breakfast, where we enjoyed scrambled eggs, toast, mekitsi (fried dough), local jam and peppermint tea.

 We were making our way to the Rila Mountains, where we were visiting the Rila Monastery.

March for our Lives 2020

We wandered the site with busloads of other tourists, yet strangely the place did not seem crowded. I’m not sure if it was the sheer size of the place, or whether the masses congregated in one area and didn’t venture far from the main church, but I didn’t feel overwhelmed by tourists in the monastery.

City Guide for Vienna

Headed over Lions Bridge and made our way to the Sofia Synagogue, then sheltered in the Central Market Hall until the recurrent (but short-lived) mid-afternoon rain passed.

Feeling refreshed after an espresso, we walked a short distance to the small but welcoming Banya Bashi Mosque, then descended into the ancient Serdica complex.

We were exhausted after a long day of travel, so we headed back to the hotel and crashed. I had low expectations about Sofia as a city, but after the walking tour I absolutely loved the place. This was an easy city to navigate, and it was a beautiful city – despite its ugly, staunch and stolid communist-built surrounds. Sofia has a very average facade as you enter the city, but once you lose yourself in the old town area, everything changes.

If You Have It, You Can Make Anything Look Good

Clothes can transform your mood and confidence. Fashion moves so quickly that, unless you have a strong point of view, you can lose integrity. I like to be real. I don’t like things to be staged or fussy. I think I’d go mad if I didn’t have a place to escape to. You have to stay true to your heritage, that’s what your brand is about.

Tiwa Savage on The Zane Lowe Show

Tiwa Savage Tells Apple Music about the song being named after a Nigerian program 
So when I heard the instrumental, exactly how you said, just the way the beat felt just soft and light, but it still felt like this old school vibe. You just want to two-step to it. So I wanted a record that felt good. The lyrics, even my delivery on it, my tone, I was very soft on it. But it’s a love song.

Tales By Moonlight, it was a popular program when I was growing up in Nigeria and it was this lady or this man that used to tell stories. So it’s me saying I just want that fairy tale type of love. I don’t want to lose hope in just finding real love. I still believe in that. No matter how many times I’ve been heartbroken, I still am a sucker for love. I still believe there’s still that fairytale Cinderella ending.

Tiwa Savage Tells Apple Music about collaborating with Nas
There’s a song on there, very first song called Work Fada. It’s featuring Rich King and Nas. I’ve never created music like this. You just have to listen to it. You have to hear it. It’s not one of those things that you just listen to, you experience it.

Tiwa Savage Tells Apple Music about playing the record for Pharrell
Everybody that was involved from Rodney Jerkins to Brandy, to Ty Dolla Sign, to Nas, it’s just, it’s incredible. When I played the record for Pharrell, he was blown away. He was just quiet for a few seconds, like, “Wow.”

Tiwa Savage Tells Apple Music about Brandy being her biggest influence
Brandy is literally the reason why I started singing, literally. As a kid, just listening to I Want To Be Down, every interview I’ve ever had, she’s my favorite, my all time, my mentor, everything. And I’ve been trying to work with her for years. It was a dream of mine. And when it happened this time, it’s not even just music, we connected like sisters. She’s someone that I speak to literally every other day. It’s beyond my expectation.

Tiwa Savage Tells Apple Music about continuing to create music through the pandemic
Some people are like, “Are you sure you want to release another project? We’re not sure about touring yet.” And for me, it’s not really about that. It’s about putting music out and just making sure that people’s souls are still fed. That’s the only way I contribute to what’s going on around the world.

What you need to know about Gee Six Five (Amapiano Gogo)



Gee Six Five

If you’ve been on social media in the last week or so, you have probably seen an image or video of a new artist named Gee Six Five.

Gee Six Five

She has become so popular, in fact, that she is practically a meme at this point, often used when people want to indicate that they have no idea who someone is.

This is due to the fact that she is the artist behind a hit single titled Obani Labababantu (who are these people?)

Gee Six Five released it last week after months of working on it.

Olpha Selepe (65) is a grandmother and retired teacher who decided to take another shot at her music career in July after she left the teaching profession at the beginning of lockdown.

Selepe is a master’s graduate and currently working towards a doctorate at the University of KwaZulu-Natal.

Despite many makking fun of the song, it seems to have grown on them.

Selepe has grown on people after clips from a recent Instagram Live were shared on Twitter.

In the interview, Selepe hails her talent which she said should not be confused for bragging.

According to a relative of Selepe’s, Sbu Mpungose, this is the first and last time we’ll be hearing from Selepe.
