"Somewhere along the way, R&B got lost—gatekeepers have recycled sounds and not kept up, musicianship has declined,“ she says. ”I really did want to make one of the greatest R&B albums of this year, but I want to innovate as well."
soulrevision: Yup that’s me, the ‘nobody’ who truly believes that she can make a difference, the one who will go to the ends of the world to fight for what is right & just, even if it mean that I will have to stand & fight alone. Here’s to the rest of the ‘nobodies’ in this world!
soulrevision: Those who truly grasp the essence of leadership understand that leaders lead from the front, this is the only way we can set the example.

"The Untold Renaissance": Ikire Jones Spring/Summer 2014 Lookbook.
It’s all dapper hommes, suave strides and bold prints and patterns in Nigerian designer Wale Oyejide’s Spring/Summer 2014 lookbook for his brand Ikire Jones.
“This collection pays homage to 18th century textiles and tapestries while exploring the absence of persons of color in Medieval and Renaissance-era European art.

Through this reverse lens to the past, the present circumstances of individuals who feel displaced and alienated may also be considered.”
