From West London to becoming the ‘Dread King’ of Harlem NYC Kwame Binea’s journey to capturing the hearts and minds of the people of New York, New York has been impressive.

As Kwame embarks on yet another sell-out tour of America in 2018 his sights are firmly set on a return to his homeland and city of birth London.

Breaking the UK musical market coming from another country is a tough ask. No Asian artists have been able to succeed at this so far although some have got close. Leslie Loh made the top of the Music Week charts with a track, Boom Bang Bang in August 2003 produced by [Stevie] Eagle E and Doc B. That was the first and only Chinese artist to make the top of any chart in the West and since then no has come close. Now Master Opera Singer Jane Maria feels it is her time to make history and attack the British Charts with her mixture of Classical opera and (sometimes) other genres.
Eco-friendly and High Fashion do not usually go together. Eco-friendly and sexy rarely go together unless you are talking about going completely nude, and let’s face it, not many people are that sexy when completely nude. It is often the clothes however much or how little we wear and how we wear them that defines that tag sexy on a person. That or their internal vibe extending outwards and being felt by others. Enter Agnes Szepligeti of Luxuria a Hungarian designer who is turning that all on its head with her eco-friendly high fashion designs. Agnes Szepligeti showcased her amazing designs at the Shlepp Entertainment G Salvatore Fashion showcase in Wales and completely blew the audience away with her designs.
Almost everyone that catches a glimpse of Gianni Salvatore’s new collection reacts in the same way, with awe. G Salvatore’s fashion makes you feel good. In an age when people are working so hard on their bodies the demand for clothes to highlight that work is more and more prevalent. Not all designers though have mastered the art of making the clothes fit the way we imagine them, but Gianni Salvatore has. If you ask him he will tell you ‘I design everything from the heart. I want people to feel great when they are in my clothes, not just ok, not just good, they must feel great or I feel I have failed’.
When you have sung with the likes of Plácido Domingo and Pavarotti you are perhaps used to ovations and accolades, but when you are an opera singer, singing a song from ‘Old blue eyes’ at an event filled with people half your age into trap music, you would be forgiven for thinking that you may not be the highlight of the evening, wrong!
Robert Magyar who has been singing at the highest level from his days at school, starting at The internationally acknowledged choir of Tóth Lajos Általános Iskola in primary school and going on to perform with the likes of Luciano Pavarotti, Plácido Domingo, Yevgeny Nesterenko, Elena Obraztsova, Éva Marton did not expect his music to have such an impact at the G Salvatore Fashion showcase, his first UK performance.
