Blanck Magazine 5 - Page 6

POWER OF TWO It is a no longer news that the era of the digital age came about as a result of collaborative partnerships, leaving mythology of the lone genius in the archives of history. Even the holy books puts it clearly that one will chase a thousand but two will set ten thousand to flight, further driving home the idiomatic expression that two heads are in no doubt better than one. It is in this light that we themed our latest issue the power of two. Featuring on the cover and inside pages, couples who have found love in life and in their art and are making a wonderful living from it. Damilola and Chris Attoh are in no doubt one of Africa’s most celebrated celebrity couples and in this issue, they give us a little bit of an insight into their rhapsodic affair. Through multiple break-ups, tears and laughter, their relationship though constantly in the glare of the public is as realistic and natural as those of everyday people. We also talked to the New York based photography duo Ada and Manre Ebhohimen about finding love in life and work; featuring a special beauty editorial titled ‘Vibrant Dust’, they say working together and clashing ideas make the job more exciting than usual. This issue is packed full with exciting interviews from industry shakers from the Comedian Eddie Kadi to Fashion Entreprenuer Nnenna Stella to the very stylish male Blogger Igee Okafor. The fabulous editorials will leave your wanted more and the rave fashion reviews will totally keep your trend knowledge in check. On a personal note I will name this issue my favourite but then like they say one is only as good as their last job. Delve in and enjoy your read and kindly send me your letters. Until next time stay stylish – Blanckstyle. Love Franka Chiedu 6 | BLANCK MAGAZINE | MAY 2015
