Lupita Says Her Mum Is Her Secret Fashion Consultant

Lupita Nyong'o turns to her mother for style advice.

The Oscar-winning actress has revealed that her ultimate wardrobe inspiration comes from her mum who taught her to dress respectfully for any occasion.

Lupita told Lucky magazine: "My mother raised us to dress as a sign of respect. Like, no ball gowns to the ball game. That's still how I approach dressing."

She added, "At Yale [School of Drama], I was three years in slacks, so then, any excuse to dress up, I took. Now I'm the opposite."

The beautiful '12 Years a Slave' star also admitted that her love for dramatic make-up looks started when she was just a teenager.

She told the mag: "My mother never wore it, so make-up always fascinated me. I was always trying to add more! I started experimenting - brows were first, and it hurt - at 16. From brows I moved on to black lipstick, which I still wear. I've had black lipstick in my bag since I was 17 - I've even worn it on the red carpet. I'd tell my mother, 'It's for the play!

"We're a big performative family, so we were always putting on shows for each other, make-believe. Black lipstick is just instant drama. I always sought out drama - I played Juliet at 14 - though I don't like it in my personal life. It's more for the stage and screen."

Eric Omondi: Esther Arunga Believed In My Talent

Comedian Eric Omondi has joined the online call to save TV queen Esther Arunga after the tragic death of her son and incaceration of her husband.

Esther's first born son, Sinclair, died after it is reported that her hubby, Quincy, punched him in the stomach and hurled him accross the room.

Quincy is in jail awaiting trial set for December 4.

Eric says, "One thing happened, followed by another and we soon lost hope and trust in Esther...but hope is never lost, we must hope against hope. Let's bring back our Esther, back to Kenya, back to her country, back to her family...even back to our Screens. I believe!!! We can!!! YES WE CAN!!!, bring back our girl."

The comedian narated how he meet Esther on his Facebook Page.

He wrote, "I once met Esther Arunga while at Daystar University...I was a second year...I had tried very much to reach any Celebrity but non would pick my calls...she did pick my call..."Hey esther my name is Eric Omondi, a student at Daystar University..." I said immediately she picked..."Yes to me" She responded in a soft voice..." Thanks so much for picking my call, am a student leader and I'd love to invite you to my college, I'd also personally love to meet you since am very much interested in TV and Entertainment" This was my response, my voice now shaking with excitement. " Ok dear, can you make it to KTN, I and M building Thursday morning 11am to be exact and don't be late!! She said sternly. Now I was literally shaking in disbelief..."Yes esther...I'll be there". 'See you then' She said and hang up. To cut the long story short I met Esther shortly on Thursday morning and since she was running late, she offered to buy me coffee the following morning at Java Yaya as I explained to her exactly how she could help. She did buy me coffee and introduced me to her entertainment outfit CINEMA (Christians in Media and Entertainment) they ran it together with Big Ted and Big Kev. She also came to Daystar to speak to the students, she brought along with her Nimrod Taabu the first time and Jeff Koinange the second time...This was huge, she made me believe in myself.I know you are asking yourselves, what's the moral of this story. It was while I was performing at CINEMA at the former Galileo on museum hill that churchill officially saw my talent and Esther Arunga officially introduced me to the man who would take me and give me the biggest stage of my life, Churchill. God used her(Esther Arunga) to lead me to my destiny. I can confidently say I knew Esther Arunga, she was a friend and a mentor...A woman who loved God and cherished people around encourager of talent and gifts a role model to the young (she won teeniz role model award that same year)...soft spoken, harmless, Joyful and cheerful."

Channel O TV Boss, Lee Kasumba Defends Awards Nominees

Channel O Africa manager, Leslie Kasumba answered some questions ahead of the Channel O Africa Music Video Awards taking place on Saturday, 29 November at Nasrec Expo Centre in Soweto, Johannesburg, South Africa.

Speaking during the release of the nominees for the awards, Kasumba said, "The quality of music videos we have seen over the past few years is testament to the way music videos are playing an increasingly important role in the promotion of African music. It is refreshing to see newcomers nominated with industry veterans in this year’s nominees list and it proves that there is no barrier to making an impact on the music scene. The music and videos produced on our African soil is of the same, if not even better, quality as that of those produced internationally and most of our nominees are no stranger to performing on global stages.”

I can see that this year's nomination is a very West and South -centric affair. Why?

I don't think it has anything to do with a west and southern affair as much as it has to do with the amount of music released. We do the best we can to ensure that we cover all regions, we do in fact have the the biggest names in East Africa that form part of the Urban Market and have had a good year covered this year namely: Elani- a new act in Kenya that is really doing well. Eddy Kenzo from you Uganda that had the biggest hits on youtube, Navio from Uganda who has been consistent in terms of dropping videos and spreading his continental appeal, Sauti Sol who has grown from strength to strength and increased their market share, Diamond from Tanzania who is undoubtedly the king of East Arica at the moment definitely one of the best performers in Africa.

Apart from Diamond who seem to have crossover appeal. What can the East do to get it right?
I think people are getting it right, to be honest, every year there are different stars from different regions. STL and Victoria had a great year last year for example Camp Mulla dominated the year before. Necessary Noise at their height was dominating and Wyre is possibly one of the best dance-hall artists from Africa. There is no formula to a cross over appeal, music just happens. Music should be organic and has no boundaries, yes at different times different areas artists dominate but it all changes. East Africa is doing well, in relation to its ratio in popular numbers.

Where are the female artistes? The ones nominated feel like they got there on the strength of the male counterpart they collabo-ed with - no, I'm not a feminist.

Certainly, this is a global question. For every one Beyonce there are 5 male counterparts. Its also a case of asking who really released this year and who was getting radio and cub play around the continent this year. I think its unfair to say that the ladies who made it this year were based off their male counterparts - can one really doubt the impact that Tiwa has had? or Lizha James from Lusiphone Africa for example. Or did Seyi Shay have a male artist bring her on - or isn't she the entire package, Niyola has been in the industry for a while and worked hard for the nomination and Thembi Seete has more than paid her dues as part of one of the first kwaito groups in SA that were dominated by the ladies- Boomshaka..Not at all. I could continue but I feel my point has been made.
Just like we don't select artists of regions - music is beyond borders, we certainly don't select off gender. Its all about who dominated and who released who had a good year and thats who we celebrate.

Will Channel O Awards ever be hosted in Kenya?

Of course this is something we have been exploring it comes down to investment from corporate within the region. But Kenya is a beautiful country.

Anthing else you would like to add?

The judging process was a continental one and we sent it out to DJ's across the regions. We simply tallied up the votes and what we got was what was sent. We chose DJ's because they basically drive popular culture and are in the clubs, and thats where music is really felt, in the clubs and in the street, where no one cares where the artist is from its just about a good sound and beat.
Each year its become harder and harder and a lot of artists do get left out because not everyone can be nominated. But while its unfortunate that not everyone can make the cut, it certainly is celebratory and a true testimony to how far the industry has gone, that we can have an all African awards ceremony and still feel like people have been excluded. Its incredible and we are proud to have been part of the industry for the last 17 years. African music is at its golden era right now and we are all living that African dream. From broadcasters to press, writers to bloggers, consumers to artists, and so forth.

How To Be A Baus Just Like A Girl!

“You throw like a girl, fight like a girl, kick like a girl, cry like a girl”
How often have you heard that phrase without thinking twice about what it really means, or how it could affect young girls who hear it? While it may be intended as a good natured joke by many, the reality is the words can have serious, far-reaching consequences as far as confidence in adolescents is concerned.
Always is taking a stand to bring awareness to the negative connotations of “like a girl,” and to drive a movement to change the phrase from an insult into a celebration of the strength, talent, character and downright amazingness of every girl.
For the past 30 years, always has been an advocate for empowering girls globally, bringing puberty education to millions of adolescent girls. Every year, 17 to 20 million girls across 65 countries benefit from the Always Puberty Education Program. With #LikeAGirl, Always continues to champion girls’ confidence and help them show the world how amazing it is to do things “like a girl.”
As part of the campaign, Always partnered with award-winning documentary filmmaker Lauren Greenfield to conduct a social experiment to illustrate how people of all ages interpret the phrase “like a girl.” The results of the research revealed that younger girls responded to doing things like a girl by being fearless when asked to run, throw or fight like a girl while the older girls interpreted the actions by fulfilling the negative stereo type. 
The study further reports that most girls’ self-confidence plummets when they reach puberty. According to the study only 19 per cent of girls have a positive association with the phrase like a girl. Through the campaign, Always hopes to positively influence every new girl entering puberty to celebrate being a woman and to have positive self-image by being more self-aware.
By starting the conversation, we will create awareness about the common words and phrases used by society to imply that girls are weak and inferior. We will be enable girls to take a bold stand to be champions of their lives.
Today, Always is inviting girls and women everywhere to join the movement and share what they proudly do #LikeAGirl. Tweet, take a picture, shoot a video or send a message to take a stand and show young girls everywhere that doing things #LikeAGirl should never be used as an insult that it means being strong, confident and talented.
To add your voice to the movement, watch the full video...
