FAB Magazine is out with its latest issue which hits news stands this week. Inspired by the adage ‘sound mind in a sound body’ and the Olympic fever that took a hold of London and the world at large for the past three weeks, the annual music issue is aptly titled ‘The Sound Issue’.
The covers bring Lagos and London sound together with Trybes Records’ First Lady and Nigeria’s hottest new female MC, Eva Alordiah, and UK’s soundest urban act Skepta together. In the magazine, you will find exclusive shoots and interviews with these young Nigerian stars of music.
Beyond Eva and Skepta, there are many more sound reads in between the two covers like the interview with South Africa’s DJ Black Coffee and Nigeria’s Cobhams Asuquo. Rising talents of British music have also been profiled in this issue.
Moving away from music the fashion pages spotlight Nigerian and fashion editor Mai Atafo and stellar South African stylist Pholoso Selebogo. There is also a colourful menswear shoot with sartorial stylistas taking to the rooftops of New York.
