This collection is a combination of corporate and traditional jalamia outfit. Unlike the usual Arabian thawb that has a wider cut, no collar, sometimes no button, longer and wider sleeve.
Making the unusual, unique and stylish jalamia isnt a bad idea, the shahin jalamia collection provides you with a soft and sharp look for everyday outing.

This year has seen the rise of many things, and social media/fashion blogging, has been one of the most predominant. One can even call this the new age of Fashion Blogging. Usually, alternative names such as ‘Beauty Influencing’, ‘Celebrity Styling’ etc. are used as replacements.
Honestly, I think this new wave of fashion blogging has broadened the reach of the Ghanaian fashion industry. Though it is even more vibrant in other countries, this new hip culture has spread through our homeland like wildfire. It is an indication of how far we’ve come as a people in terms of style and the way we pick clothes. What excites me most is how these bloggers patronize the indigenous brands. It’s such a beautiful thing that meets the eye when these bloggers flaunt they’re ‘Made In Ghana’ outfits and even better when credit is given to designers.
Aside promoting our very own, it serves as a very lucrative means of earning an income. These bloggers earn a few points when they advertise for brands. Onlookers may deem this as an easy way of making cash, but it’s quite the opposite. Per my research and observation, to be regarded as a successful fashion blogger in the first place, you need to have a large following on the popular social media platforms. We all know how tough that can be especially when you’re not showing skin and/or getting followers through devious means. Aside this, a blogger should have hands-on marketing skills and proficiency in social media marketing. Nothing comes easy.
Fashion blogging is going to take Ghana places, and we’re here for it.

One of the most intimidating parts of owning a business or a startup precisely is how much whatever you’re getting into is being done by everyone else. That shouldn’t be the case anyway.
It is an undeniable fact that the makeup business is one of the most common startups in Ghana at the moment.
It is also one of the lucrative businesses one could venture into, however considering how much the market has become extremely saturated with the makeup business, up and coming MUAs are finding it difficult to breakthrough.
In my opinion however I believe your success in any field of business is dependent on how well you “tame” your brand.
I happen to know a couple of makeup artists and through conversation I figured that it’s not as easy to establish clients these days and so I put it to thought and below are some of the ideas I would have put to life if I was a Makeup artist (and of course I’d make an awesome one if I was one 😉).
I’m definitely going to show off to the world how gifted my hands are. How?! I’d work at creating all the creative looks I can create and exhibit them through all the mediums I have access to.
That way the people on my timelines would know me for that stuff I’m made of.
This may pave way for recommendations, and networking opportunities for individuals or companies who may want to work with me.
Nadine Reid Irish and Black Makeup Artist.
You’ll definitely find me networking with wedding planners , event organizers, hairdressers and other professionals who are inclined toward my line of work.
I’ll as well take the opportunity to talk about my brand at any opportunity I get, say I sit by a young lady in a ‘trotro’ I’ll definitely find a way to tell her about my brand …cos who knows she is probably a potential client.
Not forgetting to carry my business card with me all the time .
Take Advantage of My Social Media
I have come to realize that most of the MUAs in my part of the world despite the fact that they are undoubtedly good at what they do. They have had the chance to get their brand somewhere as a result of the people they work with … and these are popular people obviously.
Therefore what I’ll do is to send mails or DMs very professionally to people in this regard selling to them my brand. Or ask people within my circle to introduce me to people within those circles.
Events and MasterClasses
This is yet another way to get some good grounding for your brand as a make up artist and also a way to make some good money.
Networking opportunities are as well open in this regard.
I’d just get my thinking cap on like I always do, come up with a creative concept which would appeal to my target audience and put it to life.

It is very important to commit your business into the hands of God because in as much as we have all the ideas and concepts in our heads the grace and favor of God is undoubtedly needed to ensure progress.
Yes so I’ll do well to pray for God’s blessings and grace.

Afro-soul singer and winner of Best Vocalist at the Ghana Music Awards, Adina Thembi continues to etch her shrill and lusty voice on not just the fans but carefully coxing her way into the heart of MTN Hitmaker star, Kidi. Celebrity journalists have described the two ‘lovebirds’ as inseparable as they coupled to produce one of the best songs I’ve previewed so far.
Being an experienced producer with one of Africa’s top urban music house, Lynx Entertainment, Kidi is seen as a talented young singer with a promising future on the African music scene. This year has been great for young upcoming musicians especially Afrobeat artistes as their records get encouraging on-air rotation across Africa and some parts of Europe.
‘Timeless love’ – The song
Something soothing about a young, innocent girl’s delivery on a love song, but Adina isn’t; not arguable. Timeless love was originally sung by Spanish singer and songwriter, Enrique Iglesias – a chart-topping soundtrack ‘Cuando me enamoro’ for the award winning Telenovela ‘Timeless love’. Adina’s voice delivery is just prolific. Key attention to the amazing works on the keyboard as Kidi enters with his doting verse….‘walking to the stars to bring Adina the twilights” Dude got lines.
Adina joins in swearing her hearts out to do anything for Kidi. This is a song for love. In this love song you definitely find fondness of two young people delighted about their feelings for each other and openly expressing it.
If this is just a song, they shouldn’t let it be. I entreat Adina and Kidi to make it real.
Get a taste of the theme song of GHOne TV’s new Telenovela ‘Timeless love’ performed by Adina and Kidi below, and don’t miss this award winning, captivating love story this October on GHOne TV.
Listen to the song below and enjoy!
