Fab People

Olu Maintain is a rising Nigerian star with his debut solo album Story of my life out in stores now and his uber-succesful single, Yahooze . Olu maintains that “the single is about pleasure after pain, working from Monday to Friday and enjoying from Friday to Sunday”. He has his own label, Reloaded Records. Check out other songs off his album on his myspace. Look out for my interview with Olu Maintain coming soon!

Idris Elba
This half-Ghanaian, half Sierra Leonan British Import has tons of movies under his belt and his being half Ghanain like moi means he is very talented, which he is. Lol. He is also a talented DJ, bet you didn’t know that; Look for him in the upcoming movies; The No 1 Ladies Detective
with Jill Scott and Obsessed with Beyonce Knowles.

This fabulous, talented lady is a soul crooner and I believe a mixture of Sade and India.Arie, although as we all know they hold their own. She is of Nigerian and Romanian birth. Ayọ (born as Joy Olasunmibo Ogunmakin near Cologne, Germany) is an Afro-German singer-songwriter. She uses the Yoruba translation Ayọ or Ayo of her first name Joy. Her debut album Joyful was released in the United States on 20 November 2007 by Interscope Records. She has a beautiful voice and she is skilled in a variety of instruments and I absolutely love her vibe. Check her out.
