Asiyami Gold's Playful & Easy-To-Wear African Prints

This is about Nigerian label Asiyami Gold and their collection for Spring/Summer 14.

While New York remains in cold January days, we're already getting an idea of what to expect for S/S 14. Nigerian brand Asiyami Gold is definitely a name to remember for what could be hot and trendy come September. Featuring plain African prints, Asiyami Gold pieces are colorful, easy-to-wear and playful. You can mix and match these at your convenience and the price range is pretty affordable. Designer Asiyami Wekulom knows how to mix it up and construct garments with bright prints. This is the perfect attire for a radiant woman and we hope to see Asiyami Gold enhancing silhouettes for S/S 14. Let us know what your favorite piece is by tweeting @okayafrica with #asiyamigold.

Rema Welcomes 2021 With New Single 'Bounce'

The Don Jazzy produced track reminds us of why the Nigerian singer-songwriter is topping charts.

Nigerian golden boy Rema took his time on deciding how to start of 2021—and we're glad he did.

The afropop hitmaker is out with his first project of the year, "Bounce", after stunning fans with word of an upcoming album, and the cooks in this kitchen have not disappointed.

Keeping it in the Mavin Records family, legendary producer Don Jazzy sprinkles his magic on the track, while undoubtedly motivating the young singer-songwriter to be his best self. And with this track being like nothing we've heard from Rema before, one could say Jazzy succeeded. "Bounce", fast-paced and fierce, is a love song dedicated to bewitchingly beautiful and blessed bottoms. The candid declaration and hip shaking beat are a force duo and we can't help but love it.

Of the single and collaboration with head honcho Don Jazzy, Rema says, "This record was inspired by the luscious and magnificent body of the African woman. Furthermore, I'm really excited about this tune because it's my first single with the legendary Don Jazzy."

Honestly, when you start the year off with a banger, you get to make songs about butts.
