My heart is very heavy. Although i knew he would be going, although he had a long life (95 incredible years), it’s still more painful than i thought. I would’ve never been as courageous, my humanity is too limited. Words can’t express my sorrow, the sensation of losing a grandfather. But in the meantime, i’m happy he could be a part of this world. Love you Madiba, and most importantly, as a young woman, as an african, as a world citizen and as a human being, THANK YOU.

Africa’s Next Top Model Cycle 1 Episode 4
On a professional note: here’s a video of Tim Horwood, MTV BASE Africa’s director, speaking about youth culture and music in Africa. He gave me LIFE, so on point & accurate. I want his job lol
On a less professional note: he’s quite good looking, to keep it polite & decent. (White guy with dreads mastering the knowledge of contemporary african pop culture like the back of his hand is a YES in my book lol, don’t judge me!).
Here is a little video i did while in Niamey for the african fashion international festival.
It’s in french by the way.
"Africa Chic" by Gilad Sasporta for Reacon Magazine (shot in Angola).
