Houston Fashion Week @HoustonWeek

TK Designs by Kimma Wreh
I had the privilege of working the runways of Houston Fashion Week, thanks to folks at Trendy Africa. This show is different for me because it's a conglomerate of designers and fashion lovers across a diverse spectrum, not just Africa, the models are very diverse too. It's high fashion, couture galore! These models are true glamazons. Strut strut strut...here they come! Flick flick and in seconds, they're gone!

Destined to Fail but Ordained to Glory—book signing with MarSha Andrus

I had a great privilege of watching the birth of someone's baby.

Destined to Fail but Ordained to Glory is a compelling story about early detachment, broken trust and stolen innocence; unfolds the struggles and growing pains of a young girl forced to grow up too fast. When you find yourself alone in a jungle with ravening wolves lurking in the bushes, where do you turn? The world can be cruel, cold and dark for a young girl who finds herself alone, looking for comfort and love in all the wrong places. In a struggle to bond and find love, they seem fleeting as she struggles even more, she finds herself involved with people with their own special interests. When one is forced to grow up too fast, that's just what one does, but not without bumps on the road. This book will take you on one woman's journey to true love, lasting friendships and spiritual redemption.

Artist profile: Basketmouth.

Basketmouth dazzled the crowd at Ayva center, Houston Texas, spiting out homegrown jokes with the usual crude spin.  He had the audience on a roll! Every funny bone was struck.  Basketmouth was on his Basketmouth Uncensored tour, making his gracious stop over in Houston.  The event was welcomed by a packed venue with little standing room.  There were roars and cheers as the audience were taken on the misadventures of a dysfunctional mind.  As usual, his comedy is not for kids, he warns "You all paid for this shit!" forewarning the audience on the impending unleashing.  Nothing is safe or off limits as long as this comedian is concerned, tackling issues on sex, family, religion, Nigerian police, the diaspora, the government, the gay community.  He got comfortable as he settled down to the anticipating crowd.  Basketmouth is an animated performer, every body part is engaged in his routine.  Notable are his springy step, how wide those eyes can open and how fluid his limbs fly with his fingers as an accessory.  

Basketmouth has honed his craft over many years, coming from humble beginnings during his school years, to days when he could be found on YouTube, till now, filling arenas.  He's now a highly sought after comedian on an international scale, working with heavy weights like Cedric the Entertainer. He's manged to garner so many loyal fans waiting for what would come out of his mouth next.  He can rightfully retain the title as the leading comedian in Nigeria.
