Budding local hip hop artist Finale (Mbesi Mothudi) is courting award winning radio personality and disc jockey Tshephang "T-Izzy" Motsisi to host hiss new EP titled Economic Blueprint.

"I have been talking to T-Izzy to host my EP. He seems the right man to do it, but that will all depend on whether he agrees," Finale told Showbiz.

This time around, Finale has collaborated with local artist AbaKhes (Obakeng Phiri) for his third release. While Finale has already made inroads in the music industry, this release is set to introduce AbaKhes as an upcoming independent artist.

"We have featured the likes of DJ Chabo, Spiza, G-Swagg, Crae, J-Traxy and Septic on this project," he said.

Finale's most recent release was the 14-track Phenomenon EP in which he features Czech star Jiri Sker, ATI and Ozi F Teddy. He believes the new EP is slightly different from his previous release.  "AbaKhes switched and focused the subject matter on the upcoming project EP in terms of lyrical ability and competitiveness. The idea was to also cater and appeal to the mainstream because the music is modern, " he said.

Finale added that they will soon release the first single for the EP, as well as the video, while he puts final touches to the seven track EP. Harare-based Toby 'Young TC' Chags is organizing a promotional tour for the Botswana duo. The tour will see them promote their music in Zimbabwe and Zambia.

Are Woman in Tattoos attractive?

What are your views on tattoos or body artwork? Are they a fashion accessory or are they an amazing piece of art that play a significant role? According to Wikipedia, A tattoo is a form of body modification, made by inserting indelible ink into the dermis layer of the skin to change the pigment.

The American Academy of Dermatology distinguishes five types of tattoos: traumatic tattoos, also called "natural tattoos", that result from injuries, especially asphalt from road injuries or pencil lead; amateur tattoos; professional tattoos, both via traditional methods and modern tattoo machines; cosmetic tattoos, also known as "permanent makeup"; and medical tattoos.

A look at Fashion

Fashion is a popular style or practice, especially in clothing, footwear, accessories, makeup, body piercing, or furniture. Fashion is a distinctive and often habitual trend in the style in which a person dresses. It is the prevailing styles in behaviour and the newest creations of textile designers. 

The more technical term costume has become so linked to the term "fashion" that the use of the former has been relegated to special senses like fancy dress or masquerade wear, while "fashion" means clothing more generally, including the study of it. Although aspects of fashion can be feminine or masculine, some trends are androgynous. Ref: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fashion

Here are some of looks to fit any occasion. Ref: http://playwithfashion.net/smart-casual-wear-men.html

-An extended play (EP) is a musical recording that contains more music than a single, but is usually too short to qualify as a full studio album or LP. Ref: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extended_play 

-A studio album is an album of audio recordings made up of tracks recorded in a recording studio. A studio album contains newly written and recorded or previously unreleased or remixed material, distinguishing itself from a compilation or reissue album of previously recorded material, or live recording made at a performance venue. A studio album is usually planned and scheduled in advance, and may take anywhere from a few days to several years to complete. Ref: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Album
