World’s Largest Bee Spotted For First Time In Decades

Published

on

The world’s biggest bee has been spotted. Until recently, the last time anyone had reported seeing a Wallace’s giant bee living in the wild was in 1981.

However, in January, the rare bee was spotted on an island of Indonesia, NPR.Org reports.

The Wallace’s giant bee — Megachile pluto —towers over European honeybees. The female’s size has been recorded as at least an inch and a half long, with a tongue that’s nearly an inch long. Add to that a pair of gigantic mandibles, and it’s a bee like no other.

“It was absolutely breathtaking to see this ‘flying bulldog’ of an insect that we weren’t sure existed anymore — to have real proof right there in front of us in the wild,” said natural history photographer Clay Bolt, who was part of a small team that sought out the Wallace’s giant bee.

The team found a female bee living in a termite nest on the side of a tree — the large bee’s preferred habitat. Female Wallace’s giant bees use resin and wood to create tunnels and cells in existing nests, carving out their own living space away from the termites.

Fashion And Music: Teflon Flexx Serves Us Both

Published

on

Music celebrities and designer collaborations have altered the course of fashion, though good examples of this relationship are few. The effects of these unions have been very significant. Outcomes include Jean Paul Gaultier’s whirlpool corset dress worn by Madonna on her 1990 Blonde Ambition tour, which subsequently contributed to the trend for wearing bra tops and less clothing. Grace Jones’s collaborations with the art director Jean-Paul Goude, who in the 1980s rendered Grace Jones’s body a fashion object, made groundbreaking music videos and advertisements for various products. However, Grace Jones’s haircut became a major trend; it became known as a “high top” when copied by young black youth. Here in Ghana reigning Unsung Artiste of the year at the VGMA 2020 Teflon Flexx also known as the SOG is gracing our screens with his beautiful traditional apparel.

Teflon Flexx a Ghanaian-based Afrobeats artist, who hails from Sandema, Wiaga in the Upper East Region is gradually gaining his grounds in both the music and fashion space after starting music two years ago with his debut EP ‘Village Boy in the suit.’ He is distinguished from other northern artistes due to his strong fashion sense and style of music, which has earned him the name ‘Sound Of Greatnes’s (SOG).’ The relationship between fashion and popular music is one of abundant and mutual creativity. Reciprocal influences have resulted in some of the most dynamic apparel visualizations ever created in popular culture. The culture of dressing is inextricably tied down to a person’s identity and gives spiritual, intellectual, and emotional distinction from others.

Fashion and music have had and still have a tight relationship. As music is becoming more mainstream, it is inherent in Ghanaian/African artists not to drift from their cultural heritage but position themselves in a strategic position to synergize the Ghanaian fashion heritage in the way they dress. Ghanaian musicians just as their counterparts will continue to have such a close relationship with fashion, these two will not separate anytime soon.

What has always been missing in our Ghanaian music industry is the fair sense of musicians propagating their local cultural heritage forgetting it has tremendous rippling effects on all facets of the local economy of their Country. Kanye West, Drake, Rihanna, Pharrell Williams, and several others have actualized the American fashion sense and today own popular brands that have influenced the world in their sense of fashion. Today, not only do they earn billions of dollars from endorsing popular brands, they have succeeded in corrupting the style of dressing of African/Ghanaian artistes.

There is beaming hopes of the upliftment of the Northern Ghanaian culture, kind courtesy of the fastest rising Ghanaian Musician Teflon Flexx with brand name STEW GANG who is obviously enthused with his culture. What makes him different from others is despite his rich international fashion sense associated with his brand, he equally slays in his fitting traditional outfits on most occasions. Teflon Flexx showcased the rich Northern culture at the just ended VGMA and also for winning the Unsung Award category, he was all glammed up in his recent music ‘Oluwa’ visuals. He has been on major platforms with trendy designs and looking dapper at events.

Teflon is equally a music gem whose hard work in the music studio spreads wide across the globe when dropped, he has served music lovers with bangin music projects like, ‘ No foreplay’, ‘ Eskebelebe’ which he featured DopeNation, ‘Madina’ featuring DJ Wobete.

The artiste and the music pride of the North is getting us deets on his forthcoming banger which features AMG Medikal, the title of the song has not been communicated yet but judging from the musical history of the dapper artist the speculation is, it is going to be a club banger.

We can’t wait for the hot tune coming from the leader of the stew gang.
