South Africa’s Riky Rick who has been in the entertainment industry for more than 5 years is known for pushing the boundaries when it comes to his fashion choices and he recently broke the internet with his latest outfit when the rapper wore a skirt during a recent appearance on ‘Live Amp’.

Although Riky Rick is known and loved for his unique sense of style, some of his fans however think he has taken his love for fashion one step too far this time. See some reactions below:

 

The monochrome gender-fluid ensemble is from the newest menswear collection by revered knitwear fashion brand, Maxhosa by Laduma.

The man behind the brand, Laduma Ngxokolo, insists for starters the correct term for the look is not a skirt or kilt, but rather it’s his interpretation of ibheshu – a calf-skin apron worn by Zulu men. He does, however, confirm that the get-up was heavily influenced by the Scottish kilt. “The collection is called culture, so the whole objective was to celebrate different cultures around the world,” he told Sowetanlive

 

Revo is an artist coming out from the tropical regional capital, Ho. The 25 year old rapper is noted for his ability to execute a perfect 16 bar verse with creativity and finesse. Premiering his first single after his maiden mix tape project “Body&Ego” is a song titled “PEACE”

We had a chat with the rising act so he can throw more light on his works.

Lyfe Republic: Why did you choose hip hop in an afro beat dominated region?

Revo: First of all I have to say that I didn’t choose this genre but instead it chose me because naturally this is what I do best and I do it with my heart. Also hip hop has been in the background for a long time now and it has now come to light or about to but either ways you can be assured that it will be here for a long time

LR: What do you expect to achieve with your music?

Revo: To inspire every soul who has ever doubted themselves, people who are confused about reality, people looking for answers, everyone who is on a quest for greatness. I want to be part of it all and most importantly anyone who is on the same wave length as my vibe.

LR: What do you make of the Hip hop scene in Ghana and do you have any favorites?

Revo: Ghanaian Hip hop is something like wine because it has come to be better over the years but as much as I listen to Ghanaian made hip hop, my favorite will have to be myself because ain’t no other rapper who can artistically arrange verbs and nouns rhythmically while blending in multiple figures of speech to make sense and most importantly to fit a subject matter.

LR: Let’s talk about your first mix tape project “Body and Ego” can you tell us what inspired the creative process?

Revo: The ideology behind Body and Ego was about how we tend to feed the physical desires of our lives more than the spiritual side. I think human beings need balance between reality and all the surreal shit that goes on sometimes.

LR: Are you currently signed to any record label?

Revo: Yes I am. Matter of fact look out for Guerrillas Music. We got some mad stuff coming.

LR: You dropping your new single “Peace” on the 12th of October tell us about it.

Revo: Peace is an amazing song I did with an amazing artist. It’s just about hope and love. I would love to hear all the comments, complaints and feedback so hit me on Twitter: @revothagod, Instagram: @revothagod, Facebook: Revo Music, Peace.

Kendrick Lamar and SZA  are leaders of an otherworldly African universe in these visuals for “All The Stars” off of the Black Panther soundtrack, Black Panther The Album. The music video for All The Stars was released on Tuesday.

The video, highlights the glory of African cultures as Kendrick journeys from a literal sea of black hands paving the way for him through scenes of strikingly beautiful black people.

It begins and ends with a galaxy of stars in the shape of the continent that SZA dances in throughout the video. It also showcases dance, vibrant African-print clothing, traditional tribal body paint and royals dripping in gold.

“All the Stars,” directed by Dave Myers and the little homies, glorifies aspects of Africa that are rarely seen in mainstream industries and does so flawlessly.

LA MÊME GANG……. You know that feeling that you get when find out that your favorite group of artists just released a  NEW ALBUM and it’s like OH MY GODDDD IT’S REALLY HAPPENING! YASSSSSSSS! La Même gang just dropped their first album “La Même” and its a real sensation!  

Have you ever heard a new song or a group of artists and knowing within the first 10 seconds that this song/group is going to be tight!? That was the experience I first had with  La Même gang,  for the very first time I heard some of their songs, I was like man, that is art in its purest form. FEELING THE GOOSEBUMPS, CHILLS AND TINGLES THAT ONLY BEAUTIFUL, PASSIONATE MUSIC CAN GIVE YOU, believe you me, there is literally nothing in the world more perfect than great music.

This “gang” of young men are energetic,raw,talented, poetic and entertaining, bringing you a refreshing and listenable sounds straight outta Ghana. They bring a refreshing vibe to the Ghana music scene. La Même gang brings energy to the stage and their  performances are overwhelming. They however produce music that extends beyond the typical Afrobeat music Ghanaians may be used to which totally makes them unrivaled. Throughout the album, you will see a range of genres including Hip-Hop, Afrobeat and Trap which gives each artist a chance to take center stage and adds features that prevents you from placing the album within the confines of any single genre.

Listen to the La Même tape below make we mad opp!
