Young, Famous, And African Unscripted Reality Series Premieres On Netflix

On March 18, 2022, Netflix launched its first African reality show, titled Young, Famous, and African.
Two days later, the show is already trending on Kenya’s Netflix, attracting those with an insatiable appetite for drama and love in reality shows, only this time from various African celebrities.

The mostly unscripted reality show follows a group of famous affluent stars as they work and play, flirt, and feud in Johannesburg, South Africa.
The show follows a group of wealthy young media personalities, musicians, and fashion icons as they pursue their dreams, fall in love, and rekindle old flames.

East Africa, Bongo star Diamond Platinumz, South African rapper Nadia Nakai, Actor Khanyi Mbau Annie Macaulay-Idibia (Nigeria), 2Baba (Nigeria), Zari the Boss Lady (Uganda), Naked DJ (South Africa), Swanky Jerry (Nigeria), Andile Ncube (South Africa), and Kayleigh Schwark star in the seven-episode series (South Africa).
Expect the ladies to squabble over fine dining and the men to yell; promises to be broken, drama, drama, and more drama.

Peace Hyde, the show’s co-creator and executive producer, has released a trailer for the show.

If you’re looking forward to watching Netflix and chilling, here’s a spoiler warning: we don’t want to ruin all the glitzy drama ahead.

This latest series is filled with the sights and sounds of wealth, opulence, and success. They leave you envious of the flashy lifestyle that comes with having millions of fans, not just millions of shillings.

Diamond has been portrayed as a soft-spoken playboy with a thing for ladies and possibly feelings for his ex-beau Zari.

Cast members in the show question the couple’s easy co-parenting relationship, which they insist is just a friendship.

“Throughout the series, Zari is frequently on the receiving end of a squabble with cast members such as Annie and Khanyi.” Zari co-parents with Diamond while also exchanging glances with Andile after a public breakup and cheating scandal with her ex-husband and the father of two of her five children,” Elle Magazine reports on the show.

One of the most intriguing plot lines for East Africans will undoubtedly be Zari’s friendship with the dapper South African TV personality Andile, with whom a spark is evident from the start.

Viewers are enthralled by the drama that appears to follow the self-proclaimed boss lady, who repeatedly claims that things aren’t all rosy with the rest of the cast because they are “intimidated by her confidence.”

The series’ fashion and style are also excellent. Of course, with a celebrity stylist on the cast, it has to be. It also helps that the show’s stars are filthy rich and can afford the most up-to-date designer clothing and accessories.

“Not short of the soft life and shots fired,’ the show gives fans a ringside view of African celebrity at its most dramatic, charismatic, and extravagant,” reports South African news website News24.

According to Elle Magazine, the show will provide viewers with a glimpse of the lavish, glamorous side of Africa, which has long been underrepresented on television.

“Viewers who have been yearning for a show to bring elements of successful series like Bling Empire and Selling Sunset to the African continent will want to meet the eccentrically vibrant cast of Young, Famous & African,” according to the magazine.

Another enthralling storyline is that of the Idibias, who have been known as a power couple who have experienced difficulties in their marriage. Now, the couple discusses their ten-year marriage.

As they make the decision to stay together and make their adorable family work, they must confront the demons of their previous difficulties, including infidelity.
It’s also interesting to see “Simba” himself go on a “hunt,” when Diamond Platnumz falls for rapper Nadia, whom he gently tries to woo despite her telling him that she has a boyfriend.

“The women are strong, owning their labels and refusing to be walked over by the men in their lives.” Bonds are tested in this first installment of the series as the group navigates their relationships with one another and new potential romances emerge. Based on the first 45 minutes, it’s clear that we’re in for a lot of drama.”

According to Decider, a television review website.
In an interview with AfricaNews, Peace Hyde, the show’s co-creator and executive producer, stated that one of the series’ main goals is to break down stereotypes about Africa in the media.

“This has been a labor of love that has finally paid off. Growing up in the United Kingdom, there were no glitzy and sexy images of Africa; all we saw were the stereotypical images that had been promulgated in the media for years. ‘Young, Famous, and African’ portrays a vibrant, beautiful, glossy, and sexy Africa to the rest of the world.”

African Fashion Week 2022 Showcases Vibrant Community Talent Hosted By African Fashion And Arts Movement Vancouver

African Fashion Week, hosted by African Fashion and Arts Movement Vancouver, kicked off on Feb. 19 showcasing much more than fashion, with vendors with handmade goods, food, featured performers, and music.

Attendees mingled amongst themselves and a sense of community was built throughout the space, which was something Yao Zeus Mohammed, founder, and producer of AFAM had hoped for.

“The importance of African Fashion Week to me is that it brings the community together, and it showcases the great talents we have in our community,” says Mohammed.

This is the fifth year that African Fashion Week has been hosted, however, last year AFAM could not host the event due to the COVID-19 restrictions. With restrictions eased, they were willing to host it this year even if it meant having only a quarter of the venue capacity.

During the intermission, attendees could buy finger food, Ghanaian jollof rice, pastries, meat, and vegetarian food options made by caterer Delali Adiamah.

“These are foods that you find at a party. So when you go to a wedding, when you go to a funeral … in Africa in Ghana, these are where you will find such food,” says Adiamah.

“[AFAM] brings the community together and showcases the great talents we have, and not only that, but it also shows the world we have a vibrant group of people working together on this west coast and it attracts others to come here and mingle with us,” says Mohammed.

 

The event showcased great talents by giving them space to share their story.

“We are not the only ones in this community, so you need that niche that you can really market your product to that they are interested in. That’s why it’s important not only to me but to the people involved,” says Mohammed.

Hana Woldeyes is the designer for BeadedBody. Woldeyes designs were showcased in the show as the spring collection. Most of the pieces were made from glass, wood, and rock. This year was her first time being invited to the show.

“I used to make my own jewelry. So, I made bracelet beads, necklaces, and amulets for myself, but more people kept asking me about where I got them. So, I started making them for individuals … [then] I started taking it as a business,” says Woldeyes.

Jason Bempong, the fashion designer behind clothing company Sleepless Mindz, was also invited to showcase his work during the event.

“For this particular collection, I’m really inspired by 1980s 1990s NASCAR jackets, a lot of Jeff Gordon pieces … [and] old varsity Disney Looney Tune jackets as well,” says Bempong.

Other designers like Mawogan Fashion, Navoir, Vickendel Style, Rated 18, V12 Fashion Designer, Kabumbe Fashion, and Rita Mary came together to create a fantastic show, with beautiful models walking the runway and performers dancing or singing between a few designs.

“Everyone should just keep following their dreams, even when people tell you ‘no,’ even when people tell you it’s ridiculous,” Bempong says.

“You’ve got to keep that vision alive and never give up.”

Diana B Slams Willy Paul: ‘He’s Hating Because I’m Ahead Of Him!’

Diana B, the newly unveiled rapper in town, has been facing a lot of backlash from netizens and household names in the music industry following the debut of her rap career.

Diana has since addressed Willy Paul who ridiculed her debut song joining the Kenyan music industry dubbed ‘Hatutaachana’.

Diana claimed that the ‘I do’ hitmaker is projecting hate on her because of the number of views that her first song has amassed on YouTube.

Speaking during an interview on Kiss 100 on Friday, Diana stated that she is ahead of Willy Paul, despite being a novice in the music industry.

“I released my first song three days ago, right now, I’m already at 1 million views. This guy has been in the industry for years. I joined the music industry three days ago and numbers don’t lie. I feel like he is hating just because I am ahead of him,” she said.

She further took to her social media to declare herself the first Kenyan female artist to hit 1 million views on YouTube in three days.

“They first run their mouth, and then they run. Recordset as the first Kenyan female artist to hit 1 million views in 3 days,” she stated.

Diana went on to ask netizens to mention artists in her comment section who are hating on her while struggling to match her number of views.

“Team Diana, tag any artist who has been hating but deep down you know they are struggling to get attention for their song views to try reach mine. What God has blessed, no man can curse,” she wrote.

Willy Paul was among the notable figures that reacted to Diana’s song, as he laughed off her entry into the music industry.

Others include Femi One who warned netizens against comparing her to Diana, adding that she can only be weighed up with Nyashinski.
