Salt-n-Pepa really is here

Not only is Salt-n-Pepa playing in my head on a loop, I’m seeing them everywhere on the streets of Freetown.


Salima was channeling Salt on Sunday in Congo Cross with her half bleached faux hawke/flat top, animal print and spray-on tights.


I think Zainab has a bit of a Pepa look going on. The blingy gold and crazy mop weave are unmistakable. 


Charles could easily pass for the guy in the ‘Push it‘ video who’s line is ‘Get up on this’. Only for the sexy people! 


This is kind of later era Salt-n-Pepa when Spinderella got hair extensions. Actually I made that up, I just wanted to include this photo of best friends Joanna and Jaminata who were very excited about striking a pose against this brick wall.

Look at these fly mothers

I went to a pretty radical party on the weekend which has left me humming Push it by Salt-n- Pepa for two days straight. 


The dance floor was thumping, as were some of the  fashion offerings. Here are a couple of standouts:

Reggie pushes it in the ultimate party dress. Not only does it feature the perfect on-trend peplum (really excited that I can finally use that word on this blog) but it’s made in traditional Salone style tie dye.


While Dr Kennedy’s outfit seems somewhat conservative at first glance, look closely at the footwear….

 These sandals are straight from his mother country Kenya and commonly worn by the Masai people. I’m telling you, we all stood back when Dr Kennedy did his breakdance head-spin. These treads could take an eye out.
