Focalistic Shares Visuals for ‘Christian Dior’ and ‘Full Sette’

Watch Focalistic's music videos for 'Christian Dior' and 'Full Sette.'

It's getting hard to keep up with Focalistic's output. The rapper from Pretoria is one of the most prolific artists in South Africa right now. Right after releasing two EPs—Quarantined Tarantino and Blecke—in three weeks, he just shared two new music videos for the songs "Christain Dior" and "Full Sette." In both music videos, true to lockdown regulations, Focalistic is on his own at home. He's outdoors on the video for "Christian Dior" and in studio on "Full Sette."


Both "Christian Dior" and "Full Sette" are part of the Quarantined Tarantino, which the Pretoria-based artist released in April. The 10-track project is a mash-up of Focalistic's influences which range from Bacardi house to amapiano, kwaito and of course hip-hop which is his main base.

Focalistic is one of the most promising hip-hop artists in South Africa. His music references a lot of South African genres while tapping into current international trends. His proximity to the amapiano subgenre and subculture means he has a share in one of the fastest growing movements in South African music, and he also gets a lot love from the hip-hop community.

How Relocating to Ghana Helped Reinvigorate Jewelry Designer Aisha Asamany's Work

Moving to Ghana gave Aisha Asamany's luxury jewelry brand, inspired by Adinkra symbols that traditionally project strength, fearlessness, love and power, renewed verve to tell personal stories of her growing clientele.

In 2019, the government of Ghana made a global splash with its Year of Return initiative – the campaign sought to encourage the African diaspora to return home to the continent, specifically to Ghana.

Linked to the 400th year commemoration of the first recorded landing of slaves in the United States, it became a launchpad for the Ghanaian government to convince Black people around the world to permanently settle in the West African country.

Aisha Asamany, a corporate management consultant for high-profile UK financial institutions turned self-taught luxury jewelry designer was one of many who heeded the call, trading in the corporate life for a spiritual and an entrepreneurial journey – one of joy, appreciation, and representation in her fatherland.
