Exclusive Interview: Mic Monsta - " I don't really see any female I can date in the Cameroon music industry".

 Hey lovely MK Readers,
Hope you all are doing great and having a lovely week. If you have been on Facebook, Twitter or any social media platform over the last few months then you have heard of MIC MONSTA. A very humble, gentle and extremely talented young rapper who is paving the way and changing the rap game in his own unique way. Sometimes called a Lyrical god, Mic is filled with passion, rhythm, well constructed lyrics, addictive punch lines and is signed to one of the best Cameroon entertainment brands - Kreef Entertainment. Mic Monsta is one to watch out for. Just like most of you, I was curious to know more about the talented rapper everyone has been buzzing about and this is what he had to tell us about himself.

Fashion Police - Buea Fashion Week

Hi lovely MK Readers,
I know you have been waiting for this post like teachers waiting for their monthly salary. So I apologies for the delay. As usual it was due to circumstances beyond my control. Anyway, let me cut off the gimmicks and dive in. As we all might or might not know, the first 'season' of Buea Fashion Week organized by Cameroon designer Reneta Ndisang took place on from the 12th - 14th of May. Well, as a first time event, I must say the organizer(s), did the best they could, some things could be better but let's just wait and see the next season coming up in November (allegedly). That said, the turn out was Really! Really! Really! poor. There were barely any 'celebs' at the event, I mean even the Buea level ones. It got me wondering if it was that they weren't invited, or as usual (in normal Cameroonian behavior), they are waiting for the event to become big and popular before they can attend. Me I no di understand wona oo. Even small upcoming artists, actresses etc couldn't make it to the event?. Chaii. That's why you guys will forever remain upcoming. *Honestly! If wona for attend wona picture for dey my blog now. Much needed exposure and recognition*, if you like ask Actress Malvis Ann. Anyway I don talk ma own.

Advise:

- To Artists, Actors etc etc: If you are up coming or planning to get into the entertainment industry, you should attack every single event till you can attack no more. From the smallest to the biggest event. You should be everywhere at all times Because you never know who is watching. An event is never too small.
- To organizers: You have to have a business mind. It doesn't matter if it is your first event or 50th event, you always need people to talk about it. And for people to talk about your event you need to have 'talk worthy' people at your event (Better people). It won't hurt to give out 5 - 10 free invitations to important personalities who will give your event the recognition and buzz it needs. I am just saying.
Now that I have aired my mind. Below are all the pictures my photographer and I could come up with.

Fashion Police: Cameroon International Film Festival - White Party

Hey lovely MKB Readers,
How are you all doing today? I know you have been waiting for this post so I will go right to it. This post is going to cover some red carpet looks for the CAMIFF White Party held on the 29th of April.  It was a party, not a formal occasion so you will see a lot of short, 'club - like', casual outfits and that is ok. A few days ago on Facebook, someone said "Cameroon is ready for a fashion police", My response is, "If Cameroon is not ready for a fashion police then Cameroon is not ready to have 'celebrities' or an entertainment industry". It's that simple.
 
Fashion Tips - HAIR:
Ladies, If you have been reading my blog, You would have noticed that I always complain about the hairstyles on the red carpet. That is because your hair can make or mare a really nice outfit.
Ponytails and buns: You should wear your hair in a ponytail or low/high buns when wearing a dress with a sweetheart neck line, one shoulder, or a dress with an intricate, and show stopping neckline.
Hair down, Off shoulder or Side: If your dress shows off a lot of skin e.g open back, deep V neckline etc etc, you might want to keep your hair down, off shoulder or to the side. This covers up some of the extra 'skin' while keeping your outfit sexy. Also if your outfit has a simple neckline, turtle necks, High necklines, simple basic outfits then you can style your hair up or down. it doesn't matter.
Disclaimer: When it comes to hair, one rule doesn't fit all, since all outfits have different variations of style, color etc. So these are just some guidelines, you still have to make sure it goes with your specific outfit.

I apologize for the poor quality of the pictures. 

Actress Malvin Ann:

 

I absolutely love this jumpsuit by Mareta West. It fits her perfectly. Also the neckline of the jumpsuit is the first I have seen and it works. It makes the jumpsuit unique. I also love her hair, and simple accessories. A simple earring would have been nice. However, see looks great #slayed.

Fashion Police: Cameroon International Film Festival (CAMIFF)

Hi MKB Readers,
How has your week been? Hopefully not too stressful, TGIF. I will like to thank you for all your love and support. It means a lot. You guys push me to be better and encourage me to never give up and it means more than you will ever know. Your lovely messages and comments make my day. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
      So, as you guys already know, the Cameroon International Film Festival (CAMIFF) has been taking place in Buea Mountain Hotel from the 26th - 30th of April and the event has brought together actors from all over the world. Veteran Nigerian Actor - Ramsey Noah, Bollywood Actors, Ghana based Cameroon Actress - Okawa Shaznay, Pulse TV Presenter - Joan Ngomba and many others. This Fashion police post is going to cover outfits from the opening ceremony, MTN night and African Magic Night.

Disclaimer: 

A very talented and inspirational Cameroon Actor - Kang Quintus had this to say "This is a FILM FESTIVAL not an Award Night. The opening days of film festivals are meant for film screenings, workshops, conferences, and training about film making or the art. The last day of the festival which is the closing/awards night is the big night! That is when all the glamour comes in!".
      He made me understand why Ramsey Noah dressed the way he did because quite frankly, I was mad when I saw his outfit. However, Mr Quintus has helped me calm down and have a sense of reason. Moving forward, I suggest that event organizers clearly state the dress code for their events because many actors and actresses did not get the memo and I don't blame them at all. Honestly, I was beginning to wonder why there was a red carpet for all 5 days. It's a little too much. Anyway, What do i know? I am not an actor. That being said, even if you have to dress simple/casual, you can still be stylish.

Actress Okawa Shaznay:


Yassssss! This is what I am talking about people! Simple yet fashionable and classy. Love love her  mid length, body-con dress it fits her perfectly, her shoe is just gorgeous, fleek hair do, Make up on point. In fact I need to stop talking. SLAYAGE DOT COM.

Fashion Police: Fredash International Annual Fashion Avenue (FIAFA) Red Carpet.

Hey MKB Readers,
Hope you all are having a lovely week. I can't believe we are coming to the end of April. It seems like just yesterday we were shouting "Happy New Year" and now we are almost half way into the year. It is a wa oo! lol. We should always be thankful to God for his blessings. Anyway, to the matter at hand. Last weekend, the 4th annual FIAFA event went down at Chariot Hotel Buea. I was so delighted to watch the event from Kreef Entertainment's snap chat (please don't judge me, na my own reality TV that). The event was very organized and full of lovely designs, models and designers. Not forgetting our celebs, Hahaha. Where there are CELEBS!, There is FASHION POLICE. No bi so??? * wona answer abeg*.  I have decided to add a fashion tip with every fashion police post to help our celebs and my readers make better fashion/ style choices.

FASHION TIP OF THE DAY - SHOES!
Ladies:
- You don't have to own many shoes if you can't afford them. However, there are some shoes you MUST have in your closet. At least ONE pump and ONE single sole sandals (Google am now).
- You should have a good number of nude and black shoes in different styles before you go into buying shoes in funny other colors. Why? Because nude and black goes with EVERYTHING. You can never go wrong with those two colors. When in doubt, wear a black or nude shoe. However the style of the shoe will depend on the outfit.

Guys:
- You all need to invest in at least one good moccasin or 'gentleman'/ classy shoe. I am tired of seeing sneakers on the red carpet. * News flash!* They don't go with everything.
- When in doubt, go with a black and brown shoe. In fact you should all own a good black and/ or brown shoe. 

Here are the celebs who killed, trashed, or were mediocre the red carpet. Disclaimer: This is purely my opinion.
  Photo credit: A big THANK YOU to Fredash, Pam Happi aka Miss P, Ebangha Nkwanyuo and all those who posted pictures on Facebook. Thanks for making this post possible. 


 Actress Malvin Ann:

 I absolutely love this outfit. The pairing of the neon green top and ankara trousers by Mareta West is great. I would have preferred nude shoes but the neon green shoes also works. Please can u say an Amen? I actually love her hair, her hair stylist could have done a better cut but this is way better than the mami water hair. #Slayed

Fashion Police - Urban Jamz Awards 2016

Hi MKB Readers,
How have you all been doing? The weather has been getting warmer here and I couldn't be happier. As some of you might know, last weekend was the Urban Jamz Awards held in Buea. I was blessed to watch it stress free on Kreef Entertainment's snap-chat (If you aren't following them, please do. They provide a front stage view of concerts, tours and events and 24 hours Q & As with Cameroon artists, entertainers and celebs). I must say the organizers of the show did a great job, probably the best Cameroon award show I have watched, but of course there is always room for improvement. However, this post is about the red carpet outfits, they were hmmm, Let's take a look abeg. Just thinking aloud - Was there a dress code for this event? because all man be jo di wear anything way e want. Most of the celebs dressed very casual, so I presume, the dress code was Casual chic.

Actress Syndy Emade:  She always looks stunning and this outfit was no different. Love the all black theme, crop top, pants and her over the shoulder coat gives me life. However I wish she wore a different shoe style. One of my favs for sure.
