Editor’s Note: Changes at Ladybrille Magazine/

“D“ear readers,

Happy New Month and welcome to our Music Edition! For four years now, I have enjoyed managing/overseeing the daily operations of Ladybrille  while operating a full time legal practice.

When I began Ladybrille, I was compelled to do so for a variety of reasons one of which was changing the image of Africans here in the West. While Africans are slowly but surely gaining the respect of Western mainstream media, especially with our explosive fashion, film and music industries, there is still more work to be done. I remain compelled to continue to keep at it, working with only the best minds to help me change the perception of Africans here in the West. Indeed, it has been a very exciting and remarkable journey so far! Nevertheless, Ladybrille Magazine/ remains my most demanding of the Ladybrille properties to oversee.

Given the demands of my legal practice and my determination to excel in my passionate practice of law as one of the top fashion and entertainment lawyers within the USA;  whose reputation also transcends US shores, at this point, it has become necessary to make some changes in the emphasis and content Ladybrille serves you.

The change will permit me to very easily oversee the brand and the persons whose services I retain to serve you, without compromising the brand’s integrity and quality.

To that end, going forward, Ladybrille will continue to highlight our man and woman of the months, but we will most likely forego our covers; and instead deliver such covers in special editions which we will make available for sale to you. In addition, our content will be more focused on the key events and personalities you should be aware of across Africa’s fashion and entertainment industries. This means expect us to continue to cover our fashion weeks, film premieres, music award shows, our global pop culture features, dynamic music from the continent etc. Our emphasis, however, will be on our new feature “Ladybrille’s 15 Questions With . . .”

“Ladybrille’s 15 Questions With . . .” features some of the most diverse and brilliant men and women in the fashion and entertainment industries around the world. We place particular emphasis on Africa but do expect to see some of the most important names in the fashion and entertainment business from USA, Europe and Asia, right here on Ladybrille. It is my hope that sharing how these individuals got to the top; and the daily principles they live by, will inspire and push you to achieve your own personal and career success.

Enjoy our November 2011 music edition which will largely be profiles on some dynamic music personalities. Our Ladybrille Woman of the Month is a stunner, you will meet her soon. Our man of the month also holds his own ground nicely.

Finally, iIf you are at all interested in the intersection of law with the fashion and entertainment industry, you may visit my law firm’s blog at to stay abreast on the interesting cases I cover in pop culture. If you would like an African slant and legal commentary on Africa’s celebrities in fashion and entertainment, you may visit my new site

Thank you all for your support, your daily visits, emails, comments and sharing our content on your social media platforms.

Yours truly,
Uduak Oduok, Esq.
