Editor's Note: Happy New Action Packed April 2008!

The nexus between fashion and music seems so obvious. Yet, when it comes to Africa's fashion & music industries, the connection is sorely lacking. In this issue, we make it our job to connect the dots by introducing you to respected African musicians within and outside Africa who "get it" and come through with a fierce fashion and music swagger! From Sierria Leone's Chosan, who is part of the recently released "In the Name of Love, Africa Celebrates U2" to Tanzania's Xplastaz, Nigeria's 9ice and Naira and South Africa's FreshlyGround, among many, it is a month full of exciting features and autographed CD/T-shirt giveaways from these artists!
All music and no business is bad for the pocket book. That's why we call on music insiders to give us a wholistic picture of issues present in Africa's music industry and tips on how our artists can keep more of the monies they earn. We complement all the industry talk with a critical aspect of fashion and music biz, marketing and promotions; which makes "M.A.C.keting 101" with global brand President of Estee Lauder, Mr. John Demsey, a must read.
Teresa Rodriguez Williamson the author of "Fly Solo," TV personality and founder of the famous travel site,, is our Ladybrille Woman of the Month! Don't miss out on an opportunity to win an autographed copy of her book plus a discount to all you readers to join her in Cancun from June 21-28th!
Saving the best for last, I thought long and hard on who could help pull this issue together. Someone who had a strong style sense, was entrepreneur minded, highly musically inclined and who believed and practiced the adage, "too whom much is given, much is expected." The answer was clear. I am very thankful to Grammy Award Winning Artist, Common, who took time out of his extremely busy schedule to show some love for Ladybrille. He is our main feature and graces our cover for April 2008. Special thanks to Jodie Blum, Valerie Vogt, Saunte Works and Derek Dudly, Common's team that helped make this a reality. Again, Happy New Action Packed April and know this. We 'bout to bring IT Status quo and Jabbawokeez style! :)

Remain blessed,
