Maison Loulabelle showcases DANDELIONS IN THE SAHEL – MLB AW 2019




Dandelions in the Sahel – an ode to the Africa of tomorrow – her Children…
 Like the puffs of the tenacious dandelions  her future rises… Defying conditions, defying obstacles and weathering the storm. THEY rise to a golden era.
 THEY are her children
YOUR children…
OUR children…
THEY are the SOUL of Africa
THEY are her future
 This collection celebrates today’s African child – in many cases, multi cultural, multi national, globalised, digitised… It acknowledges the changing realities of what it means to be an African child – all the diversity and expectations it holds, while celebrating that which binds them all together – their AFRICANITY.

So Kendall Jenner’s ‘raw’ story is a sponsorship deal and fans aren’t happy

Kendall Jenner is facing backlash after the reality star's promise to reveal her most personal story yet turned out to be an advertisement for Proactiv.
Jenner, 23, and her momager Kris Jenner, took to social media on Saturday to say that the model was set to reveal an intensely raw and deeply personal story later this weekend.
One goal of the anticipated big reveal: leveraging the young model's fame and following to foster a dialogue.

“Seeing you share your most raw story in order to make a positive impact for so many people and help foster a positive dialogue is a testament to the incredible woman you’ve become,” Kris wrote.
She told her followers to head to the model’s Twitter page on Sunday to uncover the details “and be prepared to be moved.”
The "moving" story turned out to be a commercial for the skincare company, Proactiv.
"I remember going online and seeing all the horrible things people were saying about me and my skin. I felt so good that I completely forgot that I had bad skin,” Jenner said in the commercial released Sunday. “Then I remember getting a couple of tweets that became a lot of tweets of how proud people were of me."
Fans immediately took to Twitter to blast Jenner for her big announcement.

Mbadiwe Twins… Born together, Best Friends Forever! Here’s their latest Magazine Cover

For many, it’s an explosion of mixed feelings and uncertain resolve when they hear the names: Osee and Ozee Mbadiwe. Words like rude, arrogant, proud or stock up are likely to come to mind.
These duos came to limelight after been featured in a Uk documentary tagged ‘From Lagos To London” which captured the luxury lifestyle of the twins. For the Mbadiwe twins, good looks and charm haven’t always been innate.“We were lucky not to be bullied that much, but people never failed to call us the obvious; Fat!!! Many even addressed us as obese. The style game for this two changed with the intervention of their mother who is a Uk certified personal trainer.Now that we’ve established the fact that these men are fun and stylish people, we decided to pop the question “Best Brand?”, the duo being as certain as dusk and dawn gave us the answer that we weren’t even expecting “We don’t buy names, we buy whatever suits our fancy and is super comfortable” was their reply! We thought we would hear them call out brands like Saint Laurent, Gucci, Versace or Ralph Lauren ETC. So there you have it people, Ose and Ozee Mbadiwe are not brand exclusive when it comes to fashion but will pay good cash for whatever they feel will be comfortable on them.

Is Donald Trump’s Daughter- Tiffany, In Love With A Nigerian ?


US President Donald Trump is going to have much to think about before speaking politics at the dinner table now that his daughter Tiffany is dating an Arab who grew up in Nigeria .
Michael Boulos, the son of Lebanese business tycoon Massad Boulos, grew up in Nigeria, where his father runs Boulos Enterprises and SCOA Nigeria, a multi-billion-dollar conglomerate that trades in vehicles, equipment, retail and construction.
Boulos senior is married to the daughter of Lebanese businessman Zouhair Faddoul, whom he worked with before founding his own ventures.
Originally from the northern village of Kfaraakka in Lebanon, Michael moved to London to complete his undergraduate degree after graduating from an elite international school in Lagos.
Michael and his family regularly go to their mother country every summer for the holidays, and his father even ran for parliamentary elections in 2018 before withdrawing his nomination. Boulos senior was involved with politics previously, being a part of President Michel Aoun’s Free Patriotic Movement before falling out with it and joining the Marada Movement, headed by former minister Suleiman Frangieh.
Although news of their romance only just surfaced, the two have reportedly been seeing each other since the summer – when they met at a party on Greek island Mykonos with actress Lindsay Lohan, who splits her time between the US and Dubai.


“Tiffany is happy she has so far been able to keep things with Michael under the radar,” an insider told Page Six, which first broke news of the romance. “But she introduced him to her family at Thanksgiving, and he comes across as a very intelligent young man from a great family.”
