Fée Uhssi's 'Wrap Me Up' Collection

Fée Uhssi presents their 'Wrap Me Up' Collection, a mix between African textiles and European vintage fabrics.

French/Nigerian label Fée Uhssi's latest Wrap Me Up collection highlights their high-quality fabrics sourced in Africa and in Europe. The brand's concept is simple: a single piece can be worn in many ways. This makes Fée Uhssi's garments completely versatile and unique. The label's website explains, "the pieces in this collection are designed with clever reversible, convertible, multi-way systems creating many different style options. They are created to complement the basics we all have in our wardrobe; with various vibrant pieces that are easy to mix and match, bringing the 'wow' effect to a simple pair of jeans, black leggings, white shirt, little black dress or any style that fits your look." The beautiful prints that the garments are constructed from will definitely inspire wearers to be their own designer.

Interview

Sarkodie Is Not Feeling Any Pressure

The elite Ghanaian rapper affirms his king status with this seventh studio album, No Pressure.

Sarkodie is one of the most successful African rappers of all time. With over ten years of industry presence under his belt, there's no question about his prowess or skin in the game. Not only is he a pioneer of African hip-hop, he's also the most decorated African rapper, having received over 100 awards from close to 200 nominations over the span of his career.

What else does Sarkodie have to prove? For someone who has reached and stayed at the pinnacle of hip-hop for more than a decade, he's done it all. But despite that, he's still embracing new growth. One can tell just by listening to his latest album, No Pressure, Sarkodie's seventh studio album, and the follow-up to 2019's Black Love which brought us some of the Ghanaian star's best music so far. King Sark may be as big as it gets, but the scope of his music is still evolving.

Sonically, No Pressure is predominantly hip-hop, with the first ten tracks offering different blends of rap topped off with a handful of afrobeats and, finally, being crowned at the end with a gospel hip-hop cut featuring Ghanaian singer MOG. As far as the features go, Sark is known for collaborating mostly with his African peers but this time around he branches out further to feature a number of guests from around the world. Wale, Vic Mensa, and Giggs, the crème de la crème of rap in America and the UK respectively all make appearances, as well as Nigeria's Oxlade, South Africa's Cassper Nyovest, and his fellow Ghanaian artists Darkovibes and Kwesi Arthur.
