Salam you guys, hope tuesday is going well for you guyz:) I have a question: are you addicted to facebook? It’s a great tool but da.. sometimes if feels like we all work for it non?:)  Anywhoo wanted to share my liking for Ghanaian singer Efya formely known as Miss Jane. She’s a young artist based in Accra, she’s influenced by old school artists like Aretha Franklin, current artists like Frank Ocean, Janelle Monae, Beyonce of course. Yes she can sing but I think what I like abt her artistry is that she goes all the way, she ain’t afraid to be a bit different.I was watching a studio session featuring her, her passion is strong, you can tell that she really wants “it” & she doesn’t hold back. Efya is the daughter of a famous Ghanain TV host, she had her big break when she participated in a TV

A couple of weeks ago I went to see the documentary “Ladies Turn”  directed by Helen Harden .I’ve heard about it on the TV Talk show ” Plus d’Afrique”.I wanted to see it because I didn’t know anything about female soccer local players , I had never been to a game, never heard anything about them. The movie follows the lives of a few outspoken ball lovers, the difficulties they face to be accepted by their parents, the struggles the Ladies’ turn organization face to get adequate fundings in order to organize championship games , the camaraderie that is apparent among the players.Bref I realy enjoyed it,I was really touched by the passion of the Senegalese soccer team captain Seyni, she fought hard to get funding , to get media coverage, to get the legal authorizations in order to play in the main stadium.I was happy to hear that she

This year’s themes were friendship & peace , as you know Ivory Coast & Senegal went through dramatic political times but thank God things are looking up in both countries.

I featured Warsan on my former blog in 2009 (http://yayemarieba.blogspot.com/search?q=WARSAN) . She published her first book this year called :” Teaching my mother how to give birth” available on Amazon.com. I hear her profound honesty on her digital album “warsan versus melancholy” which is at times comfortable, sensual, heavy, soft, uncomfortable, poignant, deja vu.. she’s just she:) Warsan is surrounded by pure love, her facebook page, her official sites are made of love filled  with testimonials of followers  who find answers,questions , peace and love in her words, it’s quite impressive! She def’ makes you stop & think of your own feminity – womanhood , capacity of real loving, the hurt, the loss, the eagerness to love, the disappointments, the feeling of  being loved & loved back.http://warsanshire.tumblr.comhttp://vimeo.com/36289832 Yaye

Eh oui a colorful clothing line for women going from size 8 to 24 not bad:) Love Voudin, a curvacious woman herself of Cameroonian/Frenchie roots came up with this fashion line after a trip to Cameroon in 2007. Her goal was to empower plus size women with a colorful line of great clothing items made in ethical cotton, bazin, leather ect. Her first collection for summer 2012 was quite popular within the online plus size community & was featured on several websites like Refinery 29. Love & her team are working on a new line , can’t wait to see what they will do this time.http://www.masaari.me Yaye
