Imolites are talented. No wonder so many gifted Imo citizens became Nigeria’s most known artists. However, even among the most talented ones are those who overcame the rest in their skills and potential.

In this article and according to the directive of the Record Label scouting association of Nigeria, a secret association that aims at scouting for talented music artists and producers and helping them secure life-changing deals with popular record-labels that are looking for artists.

Born Golden Okafor Chinedu, Xbusta grew up in Abuja were the likes of Davido, Wizkid, Olamide and the rest of them had it tough from, Dragun or Daddy Eh as he is fondly called intrigues with a deft rap prowess that has successfully defied social associations and class hierarchies.

What he lacks in physical appeal, he makes up with great lyrical content, perhaps the twisted version of Yung6ix.

Xbusta was signed into E-Money’s owned Five Star Music Group but left in 2018, after his label mates, Skiibi and Harrysong found their ways.

How Designers Are Taking Face-Mask Printing A Notch Higher

With no sign of COVID-19 dusts settling soon, Indonesian and Malaysian designers are taking their skills in face-mask designing a notch higher.

Customers are ordering designs with their own faces printed on reusable neoprene material, some with smiling faces, or big red lips.

A 46-year-old Heni Kusmijati has one such mask made for him.

“When people see us, they seem to be wondering why we are smiling and laughing,” he said.

According to Reuters, a print shop in Jakarta added masks to it’s list of services after the pandemic took a toll on its sales.

Customers place the orders online along with their photos of their faces.

“At the beginning, we were skeptical,” the shop owner said of making masks. “But later, the demand surged, and it helps us to recover the business loss.”

A single mask takes just about half an hour to produce. Each piece costs and estimate of USD 3.50.

There are many similar ideas in South East Asia.

For instance, a special effects artist in the Philippines makes horror masks.

A Thai single mother on the other hand designs face shields with cartoon and movie characters prints.

Batik designs are common in Malaysia even though wearing masks isn’t mandatory in the country. But business establishments requires that one does so.

Some designers make them using soft cotton materials decorated in dye, wax and other ancient accessories. The product includes optional pockets for adding filters. OMGVOice.
