Mona Haydar. Syrian-American boss babe with some bars for the Hijabi wearing royalty of the world. My mind is blown and I couldn't be happier with the way we are standing up for ourselves in a beautifully creative way. Be sure to keep up with her on IG at @themostmona.
Late last year, I got the opportunity to shoot for one of the biggest and brightest festivals ever! The One Africa Music Fest was held at the Toyota Center in downtown Houston and was a complete and total experience! All of the top international artists were present in the same building at the same time! An Afrobeats concert in Houston is not one of those "put your phone in the air" type shows, everybody was too busy doing the Shoki! We even had the mayor come out and personally ask for the festival to come back again and again! I'm looking forward to catching this amazing festival on its second coming, so stay tuned for new tour dates coming soon! In the mean time, check out my view of the amazing One Africa Music Fest above!
The Migos are back at it again. Check out this visual directed by DAPS and the group's front man Quavo for their latest single "T-shirt" off of their highly anticipated upcoming album, CULTURE. Rave reviews are already rolling in about this visual and the Migos can honestly do no wrong. I don't know about you, but after their "Bad and Bougie" performance in Nigeria went viral, the 27th couldn't come fast enough! Look out for their sophomore album later this month on Itunes! Enjoy! <3
2017 will be the year for R&B! To help you get things started right, check out this dope new artist coming out of Hamburg, Germany giving us all the new school 90's vibes with her video for Bist Du Down, produced by +ma and directed by Arnold Hammer and M. Henry. From the looks of it she's fairly new to the scene, and I personally can't wait to see what's to come. You can purchase this track on itunes and keep up with her music on Soundcloud! Let me know what you guys think!
