FG2BH Presents E-Mail Rundown With Naana B, Sade, Oluchi & Agbani

April 13, 2010

R&B singer/actress/former Dancing With The Stars contestant MYA rocked a Naana B “Blame It On Rio” python clutch at the 2010 International Dance Music Awards in Miami last month. (I am digging the one-shoulder champagne-colored ruffle dress that Mya has on. Her red carpet dress compliments her exclusive Naana B clutch. And yes that’s singer Wynter Gordon with Mya in the below FG2BH-created photo collage!) The gorgerous clutch retails for –drumrolls please!$250.00!! Snag the it bag of the Spring/Summer 2010 season from the Vixen Collection over at NAANA B. Catch up with Naana B with our fab Get To Know feature where we reported on their Teen Vogue editorial feature.(Thanks Katherine from BlinkPR!)

Recently on American network TV via their recent apperance on Jay Leno’s late night show, Sade finally performed their official second reggae-inspired single “BabyFather” off the #1 record, Soldier of Love. Is that Sade’s daughter Ila singing backup??? Overall Sade did a superb job and the group sounded ever better than the CD version. I’m definitely forward to their upcoming tour. Sade’s best-selling (re: platinum & counting) album, Soldier of Love is in stores now.

Oluchi recently updated her Twitter page (@OLUCHI1) with a new professionally done portrait. Loves it! The Nigerian-born model also shared on Twitter that she has dual citizenship with Nigeria and her husband’s native homeland, Italy. Next up for Mrs. Luca Orlandi is a well-deserved vacation with her family (including her adorable son, Ugo) to St. Barths! (Thanks Val!)

Former Miss World 2001 and Nigerian-born model Agbani Darego can now add TV host to her professional resume. Agbani has just signed on to host the reality TV series, STYLOGENIC! The official presentation of Stylogenic was done in Lagos, Nigeria a few weeks ago and the producers hinted at a Summer 2010 release date. Agbani wore a black and gold Jewel by Lisa dress to the event!  (Thanks BainStone Scoop!) Check out a few promotional Stylogenic snapshots and a red carpet photo of Agbani below…

Via the Stylogenic press release:
Africa, Fashion, Style & Agbani – Everyone is buzzing about STYLOGENIC
New style-focused Pan-African Reality TV Show hosted by former Miss World, Agbani Darego set to air this summer
“You better go and think of a real career!” That was the response that most African parents would give when their children suggested that they wanted to enter the world of fashion. Perhaps as a model, fashion stylist, fashion designer, photographer, makeup artist or even a fashion photographer.
Thanks to the success of fashion pioneers including Iman, Oluchi and Liya Kebede, things are changing. Fashion is being recognized as a worthy profession.
An exciting new Pan-African Reality TV show – STYLOGENIC is set to propel African fashion and those that aspire to join the industry to greater heights.
STYLOGENIC is a show like no other. Rather than being based on the search for a top model or designer or stylist, the show is based around the concept of a style team! So contestants are going to be grouped in teams consisting of the various ‘style elements’. That is a model, designer, stylist, makeup artist, photographer and model. They will compete as a team and will battle it out with fellow teams for the grand prize!
The show recently held a media presentation in Lagos which was attended by the host, one of the most famous women in Africa – Former Miss World, Agbani Darego. Agbani won the Miss World crown in 2001, making her the first and only black African to ever win the title. She went on to have a successful modeling career which included a stint as a L’Oreal International “Face” and Spokesperson, numerous commercial ad campaigns and features in US Vogue and Essence magazine.
Entries for the show will open soon and entries will be accepted from all eligible Africans based on the continent and in Diaspora. The show will begin airing in September 2010.

I am definitely looking forward to this new show! Got any news to share with me, visit my Contact Me page to fill me in!
