Published

Hey style lovers, welcome to 2016! Although 2015 was an amazing year forAwed by Monica in so many ways, there are so many things I know I could have done to elevate myself & my brand to the next level. Ans that is why I am terming 2016 as the year of elevation.

Let’s take it up a notch this year in our fashion, makeup, hair and life in general. We are the only ones holding ourselves back, so instead of putting up invisible baeeiers. let’s step outside the norm and make 2016 our year.

Here are 5 ways to do this;

1. Improve Your Wardrobe

AwedbyMonica Style Tips for 2016 - BellaNaija - January 2016001

Out with the old and in with the new this year! In a perfect world, we would all like to start fresh and replenish our wardrobes, however for most, that isn’t quite realistic.

In 2016, instead of focusing on acquiring many items that we don’t even really like but get anyways because they are on sale, let’s put our resources into one or two items we love. Get that one classic bag you have always wanted, or that perfect ‘pop of color’ piece that is sure to transform your outfits. You already have great pieces in your closet so why not get that one piece that you can use to accessorize your wardrobe, and help elevate your style.

2. Fashion Trends to Try in 2016

I don’t even know where to start with the trends. There are so many fabulous fashion trends that have been predicted for this year. I have picked a few that are sure to elevate your style game in 2016, so take notes.

– Top-handle Bags
Top handle bags are sophisticated, classy and chic. Don’t ask why, but your bag truly speaks volumes, so start the year with a bag that tells the world you are ready for successful year.

– Wide-Leg Jeans
Isn’t it funny how fashion always does a 360? The hot fashion trend of the 70s is back lovelies so get with it.

Wide leg jeans are going to be major this year, so if you haven’t already gotten rid of your old pair, dust them off and bring them out. Unfortunately if you did get rid of your old pair head to any major retailer because they are all selling this must try trend for 2016.

– Clean and Classic Looks
If you want to be successful this year, you can’t just play the part, you also have to dress the part. Add clean and classic pieces to your OOTD (Outfit Of The Day). We all have classic pieces in our wardrobe, so you don’t even have to run out and start buying pieces to achieve this trend. It’s all about how you put things together. Lose the busy look this year and opt for more clean and classic outfits.

3. Enhance Your Hair

When 2015 started, I was all about natural hair and I am still about natural hair and loving it. However in 2016 I want to encourage you to try something new, switch out your hair damaging weaves and try clip-ins.

They are way better for your hair, and don’t break or damage your hair like weaves do. Plus, you can do a hundred and one different styles at the touch of a clip. Wearing clip-ins also allows you to take better care of your own hair. I encourage you wash your hair once a week and wrap your hair at night instead of using a flat iron every night.

4. Makeup that is Sure to Turn Heads

Bold & pronounced makeup is very much a trend right now! At the same time, that clean & flawless face is also major. So what to do? Go with the statement makeup look or the ‘I Woke Up Like This’ flawless makeup look? The answer is to do all of them this year. Either way you will make heads turn. Contouring and bold eyes will definitely enhance your features and is perfect for going out.

A flawless face is sure to have people questioning your age and wanting what you have. Have fun with makeup this year and don’t hesitate to step outside of your makeup comfort zone.

5. Selfie – Self Love

In a world where we have been seeing so much hate this past year, is it really so bad to have a little self-love? We criticize the whole selfie culture and people who take selfies, but what is so wrong with appreciating and showering yourself with some love?

If we took the time to love ourselves a little more, that love for self would definitely transcend to others. 2015 was definitely a blessing but with a little more love in your heart, 2016 will be the biggest success ever. Go ahead take a selfie and love others as you love yourself.

Court Case: The Deafening Silence Of Black Sherif And His Investor

Published

on

What is the latest on Black Sherif’s court issue with his investor, Shadrach Agyei Owusu (Chavis)?

Well, Ghana Weekend has been following up on the matter. At least we need to get our audience updated on the issue since it is of great interest to many.

The case

On 11th April 2022, a writ of summons by the plaintiff, Shadrach Agyei Owusu, requesting that Ghanaian artiste Black Sherif be prevented from performing at events without his consent, was sighted by the media.

Shadrack requested an order for the preservation of all funds accrued from Black Sherif’s online streams.

Shadrach Agyei Owusu, the Chief Executive Officer of Waynes Chavis Consult, wanted a receiver to be taking the proceeds of all funds that would be accrued from the activities of the defendant.

This happened at a time when Black Sherif’s latest song ‘Kwaku The Traveller’ was topping global charts, making him the most sought-after artiste in Ghana in recent times.

Why was Black Sherif sued?

This suit came on the back of claims that Black Sherif had neglected his investor after he had injected funds into his career.

Black Sherif was reported to have signed a distribution deal with Empire Music without the consent of his investor, who purportedly had a business management contract with him.

The contract required that Black Sherif conducted all his activities through the investor who came on board to help the artiste.

Court day: May 9, 2022

This was the date set for the court hearing on the matter. So far, little information has been gathered about what became of that particular hearing.

While some of our sources say the case was not called at all, others say, it was deferred to a later date.

Ghana Weekend has tried scooping some information from both sides of the issue, but they are unwilling to really give details of the current situation of this suit.

Our interest

Ordinarily, this should be none of our business, but Ghana Weekend, as a media organisation, is interested in streamlining all facets of the entertainment industry. We saw this matter as a test case of many cracks in artiste-manager deals in the country. We are not on a mission of waking up sleeping dogs. We want precedence to be set for posterity.

Currently, Black Sherif is minding his music business, making money for himself, and growing his music career. Shadrack on the other hand is going about his work. They are both silent about the issue like nothing happened.

Maybe they have squashed their matter in private. Maybe Ghana Weekend is impatient with the outcome of the court hearing.

Maybe, our dear readers need to keep their eyes glued to our platforms as we nose out all details on this matter in our subsequent episodes.

We’ll be back!
