Interview: Sasha P Talks Celebrity Style & Fashion Choices!

OnoBello OnoBello

There are loads of talented people who are carving a niche in fashion. One of such people is popular rapper Sasha P who a few years ago launched her fashion label "Eclectic by Sasha" (EBS).

Sasha deserves a little more love as we think she is awesome in what she does- music and fashion designing.

Today, the first lady of Nigerian rap tells us a bit about her fashion choices.

We hope you love it!

OB: Most people perceive you to be fierce. Do you think it’s because of your style or as a result of your kind of music?
SP: I believe it was because of my initial style and also my performances on stage. When you really listen to my music, you’ll notice it’s not aggressive. It’s more motivational and empowering.

In the “First Lady”era of my career, I wore a lot of jackets and used a lot of imagery that was strong, military etc so that, I suppose, was what coined the reference!

OB: Now designing is a big part of you. Do you think it has changed your style?
SP: Initially it didn’t because I designed even before the music took off and so I wore my designs. However, when I got into retail proper, my approach to fashion changed. I have been greatly inspired by designers like Coco Chanel and now I’ve embraced the philosophy that “Less is really more”.

OB: What’s the most interesting thing about designing for people?
SP: The most interesting thing I’ve found is how getting a client's order right makes them feel. There is no amount that can replace the fulfilment it brings when someone walks away with their EBS bag in tow.

Also, it’s interesting to see when someone’s physical hang ups change when they try something you suggest or just something different from what they are used to. The right clothes can sometimes have a therapeutic effect!

OB: What fashion pieces do you favour?
SP: Shoes!!! But I’ve developed an appreciation for minimalist items.

OB: What is your short-term focus; fashion or music?
SP: Both! I refer to myself as a creative entrepreneur. Music and Fashion are my passions but exploring them has made me discover more things that I am excited to pursue.So who knows what I will add next? It’s a learning curve and I am happy with where they are both taking me.

New School Music: It’s “21 Questions With…” Falz, The Bahd Guy!

Quite a lot of people have joined the Falz train over the past year. He came on the music scene and stole our hearts with songs like “Cool Parry”, “High Class”, “1, 2, 3” with Oyinkansola, “Shakara”, “Transform Ya” and many more songs.

The Barrister turned musician and Entertainer is always a good listen on his songs with his unique sound and style of mixing hilarious Yoruba with socially conscious lines that entertain but deliver their message.

Folarin ‘Falz’ Falana is one of the children of popular Lagos lawyer, Femi Falana, and in a house of 4 lawyers it is quite a surprise he has been able to break through the norm.

Brymo Set To Release An Autobiography? Read Excerpts From “Diaries Of A Broke Wealthy Kid”

  • Published in BUZZ

Don’t you just love how the Nigerian celebrities are showing how multi-talented they are? Brymo, formerly of Chocolate City has always been a favourite among the many Nigerian musicians when it comes to talent, especially with his song writing.

OnoBello

Well the “Son Of A Kapenta” is set to dazzle the world again and recently uploaded an excerpt from what seems to be a forthcoming book titled “Diaries From A Broke Wealthy Kid”.  The story focuses on Brymo growing up touching base with his core background such as his school days, being a Muslim and much more. Read a page of the Diaries here:

"Wake up" my father raised his voice a tad louder. He shook me afterwards, and I in turn produced a low snore-like grunt pretending to be in deep slumber. "It’s time for your morning prayers, wake up Ibrahim". I knew game time was up; my father didn’t like to repeat himself much. I stirred lazily as I sat. "Get up, you sleep too much" he shoved a copy of the Quran in my face, my copy. I was required to recite certain verses daily after fajr, and I didn’t like it. I also didn’t like waking up that early.

After getting fathers wish out the way, next is the little chores. The one room in which I and my parents lived in was quite small therefore easy to clean. Same goes for the dishes; it was just the three of us. Sometimes a relative from either of my parents would live with us for a while. On weekdays I had school, I attended the closest public school around, my mother could not bear to see me go away too far. My dad ran a carpentry workshop about two streets away and he would insist I come over after school, I hardly complied. In summary my weekday activities were pretty much around school, Arabic classes ( ile kewu) in the evening and more food if there were any, then sleep. I did my home work in school, before or after classes resumed. In my opinion school was meant to teach us about the past, and since I could read, I knew I could get all the information the past had to offer by myself, if I could be disciplined… I still hold this concept to heart.

It was the mid/late 90s and the country was as hard as it is now. Abacha was in power, he was the 10th of his kind to rule and of course the people were as clueless as to what government was about, just like now. The sky was cloudy in the day; the entire land was mostly dark at night. We lived like strangers in our land, just like now. We were tools to enrich a higher power just like now. Leaders proudly claimed royalty subjecting the people to hardship forcing the people to worship them the leaders, loyal citizens were rewarded from time to time, like now. The rest of the world was never relenting at seeking answers to mankind’s everyday needs, just like now. We lazed about with a nonchalance that’s shocking. Like now. The elite would cling desperately to imported ideas whose existence was only necessitated by the current needs of its inventors, ideas that would easily plunge a people like us into confusion as we only see opportunity to loot in everything. Like now, the government served all of its purposes except to ensure to put structures for the people to be catered to. People were unemployed, education was poor. We didn’t even have a birth/death record system. We didn’t have anything that was credible. Like now.- oh sorry we had the super eagles at some point, abi??


On the weekends it was my job to gather saw dust for mother. I was required to gather enough to last a few days, hopefully the whole of the week else I would’ve to do an emergency round to the saw mill. I usually took the trip with a handful of other kids who were carrying out same chore for their parents. Our mothers needed the material to set up a cooking apparatus called ‘Abacha stove’. Since she needed to pile up the saw dust to cook almost every fresh meal, it was important to have a store full of it. The scarcity of kerosine I believe triggered the invention of the said cooking apparatus, hundreds of thousands of families across the country felt the unsavory taste of it. Nothing was working, just like now.

This single page already seems quite captivating. What do you think?
