NIGERIA: HIP HOP DUO PETER AND PAUL “P SQUARE” OKOYE SPLIT

Nigerian Hip-hop duo, Peter and Paul Okoye otherwise known as P-square, have finally parted ways.

One half of the twin band Peter Okoye requested the termination according to a letter sent to their lawyer Festus Keyamo (SAN)

Peter levelled some serious allegations against his twin Paul and Jude their elder brother and manager.

He accused Paul of no longer willing to co-operate with him.

He also accused him of cancelling their scheduled music tour to the United States.

He also accused his brother of slagging off his wife and children on social media, and alleged that his family was being threatened with messages.

Peter further accused his older brother Jude of once threatening to kill him and shoot his wife Lola.

Peter stressed that he was tired of the “drama” and all he wanted was to opt out of the Psquare group and contract.

Social media was set on fire after Peter posted a Snapchat video revealing that he is in Philadelphia on his own for a solo show – without his twin brother, Paul.

“My name is Mr P,” Peter said “As from today, guess what? It’s show time, I’m about to go on stage.”

This post came days after his brother, Paul wrote on Instagram saying; “Only a woman can come where there’s peace and destroy it”.

As a band, P Square dominated the Nigerian music industry for many years,

RACISM CLAIMS AT LONDON FASHION WEEK AS BLACK MODEL WAS HECKLED AND HUMILIATED ON CATWALK

Racism reared its ugly head on the catwalk of the London Fashion show as a black model was allegedly humiliated and heckled by photographers and audience members.

The model Brenda Beaux said she was subjected to yells and shouts of “Move!” and “Get off!” as she modelled outfits by British designer Pam Hogg

The rising star from Surrey said she felt deeply humiliated and  was reduced to tears even as she strutted on the catwalk.

“It was almost as if they planned it”, she said. “how they all started shouting “go” at the same time in an angry way”

I have never felt such hate towards me in my life. I almost burst into tears on the runway then I remembered that I was working so I carried on like nothing had happened. I just had to be strong enough to get back down the runway and when I did, I just started crying”

The leggy model also said fewer photographs were taken of her than of her white colleagues.

She said she believed she was singled out because she is black.

The designer whose outfits Brenda was showcasing was reportedly furious when she heard what happened and apologised to the model. “She was very nice to me and said she wanted me back for her next show” said the model.

Ms Hogg said “Whether or not brenda had been picked on, the yelling had been unacceptable. A gorgeous girl was left feeling singled out because of her colour”

Fashion Scout who staged the event denied it was racism saying photographers had yelled at her to move so they could get clearer shots of another model behind her

“They have however been asked to show more respect”

WORST FEMALE FASHION NIGHTMARE AS 6 WOMEN TURN UP AT WEDDING IN THE SAME DRESS

The hilarious incident prompted one of the unfortunate victims to post on the Forever New Facebook page encouraging the use of a “bridal registry” to help others avoid the blunder they endured.

Sydney resident Debbie Speranza posted: “You really should start a bridal registry so that your customers can enquire whether anyone else has purchased one of your dresses for the same event.

“No we are NOT the bridesmaids just the guests.”

The post has since gone viral with over 23,000 likes, and 6,000 hilarious comments, a feat Speranza believes Forever New owes her a voucher for.

“Think I deserve a gift voucher for all this advertisement [sic]”, she joked on the post.

The comments range from sentiments from those who have been in the same position, to others who saw the seriously funny side.

One woman believed the best way to handle the situation was to “laugh it off”. And by the looks of things, that’s just what these women did.

The dress, described on Forever New’s website as “perfectly tailored to flatter and accentuate your figure” and help you “make an entrance-worthy appearance”, is available for $175.

Just be careful to check with your friends first before wearing it to a wedding.

MICHAEL KORS SNAPS UP JIMMY CHOO

British shoe brand Jimmy Choo has been snapped up by American fashion label Michael Kors in an £896 million deal.

Michael Kors said on Tuesday it has agreed to purchase the luxury shoemaker for approximately $1.2 billion, adding a coveted global brand to the U.S. retailer’s stable as its own handbag and accessories sales suffer.

Many retailers have faced declining sales in recent years amid fierce competition from online shopping and discount and fast-fashion stores like TJMaxx and H&M. In an attempt to woo shoppers, Michael Kors has offered heavy discounts, but has ended up giving people reason to pause before paying full price and diminishing the brand’s cachet.

Sales have taken a nosedive, declining 11% in the latest quarter, and investors have wiped away a third of the stock’s value in the last year. Michael Kors is in the process of closing 100 to 125 of its standalone stores, renovating another 100-plus stores and doubling down on more innovative designs. It also said it would rein in its discounting and sell fewer items to department stores, which are prone to marking down items in order to move inventory.

The acquisition will give Michael Kors a new avenue for international growth and a foothold in the luxury shoe market. “We admire the glamorous style and trend-setting nature of Jimmy Choo designs,” said Michael Kors, honorary chairman and chief creative officer, in a statement.

Jimmy Choo was started in 1996 by British Vogue editor Tamara Mellon and designer Jimmy Choo. Its stilettos, which often cost north of $1,000, quickly became a favorite among celebrities like Sarah Jessica Parker and Princess Diana.

The shoemaker put itself up for sale in April as Germany’s billionaire Reimann family, the largest owner through investment vehicle JAB Holding, attempts to shift its focus away from luxury goods. It is instead creating a food and beverage empire and has scooped up brands like Krispy Kreme, Peet’s Coffee & Tea’s and Caribou Coffee. It recently bought Panera for $7.5 billion. Michael Kors said the deal has the support of JAB.

Jimmy Choo will continue to be run by CEO Pierre Denis, who has held the top job since 2012 and was previously an executive a luxury powerhouse LVMH. Jimmy Choo has more than 150 stores around the world.

The move comes on the heels of Coach’s $2.4 billion acquisition of Kate Spade, which was another bid by a U.S. retailer to accelerate growth by picking up a likable brand with a younger following.

“We expect more consolidation in this market, with more ‘affordable’ luxury houses looking to upscale,” said Jonathan Buxton, head of consumer and retail at Cavendish Corporate Finance.

Shares of Michael Kors edged up 1% in pre-market trading, while shares of Jimmy Choo surged 17% in London.

AFRICA’S FIRST PLUS SIZE FASHION WEEK TO DEBUT IN LAGOS, NIGERIA

A first of its kind fashion runway show dedicated to plus-size women is set to hold in Lagos.

Organised by Plus-Size Fashion Week Africa (PFWA) the fashion runway show seeks to highlight plus size models and apparels.

The event is set to hold on 2nd September 2017 at the Main Banquet Hall of the Oriental Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos.

The event will feature runway shows, exhibitions, business talks, fashion enterprise on skills acquisition as well as diet talks.

PFWA was birthed out of the need to stop the stigmatisation and body shaming of the plus-sized woman, according to the organisers, ‘we believe that every woman should be comfortable in her skin and body regardless of what the society thinks as long as they are healthy.’
