From the runway to behind the scenes and of course the faves, here's the full review of ZFW 2014.

Zim Fashion Week: Zimbabwe Fashion Awards 2014

Ishmael Tsakatsa is Zimbabwean Designer of the Year

Emerging fashion Designer, Ishmael Tsakatsa, whose label, Zargue'sia, wowed judges and audiences alike at the 2014 edition of Zimbabwe Fashion Week (ZFW), was last night named Zimbabwe’s Designer of the Year.

Tstakatsa’s collection at ZFW 2014 was awe-inspiring and stood out with its crisp, clean silhouettes & frilly detailing in a maroon, white & black theme.

It’s been steady progression for Tsakatsa who has showcased at ZFW for the last three years. In 2012 he escaped the nominees list completely. Then last year he was nominated for the young Designer of the Year Award. The award went on to be won by Sarudzai Murungu.

Zimbo Jam contributor, Ameera Murad Ameer, was named blogger of the year for her fresh fashion perspective on her blog, Just Mimi. Creative and experimental photographer Michelle Fortmann, was deservedly named photographer of the year.

Listen To Kendrick Lamar’s New Single, “I”, Off His Upcoming Sophomore Album

Kendrick Lamar‘s debut album, the platinum-selling good kid, m.A.A.d. city, was the most celebrated Hip-Hop album since Kanye West‘s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (2010), and the most critically-acclaimed rap debut since 50 Cent‘s Get Rich Or Die Trying, and now the Compton emcee has returned 2 years later for his encore performance. After taking 2 years off to do a song with just about everybody, tour in just about every city, perform at the Grammy Awards, nearly win one and become a household name, Kendrick Lamar has officially begun his sophomore album roll-out. Earlier this year, reports began to circulate indicating that the “Poetic Justice” rapper would have his next release ready for a September release, but instead we get the lead single. No complaints.

The new single is produced by Rahki, who also finds himself on a big stage. He’s worked with Kendrick Lamar before–Rahki co-produced “B…

Nneka Pulls Out of Shoko Festival 

Just when we were getting excited about this act, Shoko Festival last night announce the German Nigerian superstar will not be able to perform at the fourth edition of the Shoko Festival due to health reasons. She has been in and out of the hospital in Germany for the last week. Nneka’s tour manager Thorsten Seegler said “Believe me, that I feel very sorry about this.”

Nneka personally said to her Zimbabwe fans:

“Dear all I am so sorry for this sudden cancellation, I myself do not feel very good with all that has happened due to the fact that I am not feeling well and strong enough to do this trip I have had to disappoint you; and I apologize.

I thank you for all the love and support you have given and of course your understanding love and light regardless”

Tyler is expecting his first child with on-again, off-again girlfriend of a few years, Gelila Bekele. He discreetly shared the news at his recent 45th birthday party in Los Angeles while giving a speech.

While speaking, a guest told E! Entertainment that “he said he had to start getting used to not getting a lot of sleep, because his life was about to change in a big way”. “He said, ‘Some of you know what I’m talking about.'” The guest also disclosed that Bekele is about 7 or 8 months pregnant.
