BUY Ladybrille Magazine May 2010 Music Edition Out Now!
Ladybrille Magazine, founded in 2007 to de-stigmatize the negative images of Africans by exposing its youthful, urban and explosive creative industries to the Western masses, continues its style of always keeping Africa in Vogue with its May 2010 Music Edition.
This edition celebrates Africa’s music and musicians with Latin Grammy Nominee Choc Quib Town (CQT) and South African Artist and Producer Wax in the 2 in 1 May Covers.
Wax, a South African and Cameroon based artist and producer, is also the Magazine’s ‘Man of the Month.’
“The ‘Man of the Month’ is a monthly feature which recognizes outstanding men, locally and internationally, for their brilliant contributions to society,” explains Uduak Oduok, Editor-in-Chief of Ladybrille Magazine.
Wax is honored for his use of music to inspire African youths and raise awareness on social issues.
Nominated ‘Best New Artist’ at the 2009 Latin Grammy Awards, Colombia’s CQT gets the “Choc” in their name from the city of Chocó, one of the poorest cities in Latin America located in the Pacific Coast of Colombia. The city, where the 3 band members are from, also has the largest community of Africans in the country, many of whom are descendants of African slaves. CQT is using its brand of funky Afro-Colombian rhythms to put Chocó on the world map.
The Music Edition also features owners of Africa’s most popular music sites online: Demola Ogundele (Notjusok.com), Peter Kingoya (UGPulse.com) and the brilliant 5 at museke.com; all of whom provide a list of Africa’s hottest musicians to listen to in 2010.
