Alpha Blondie Comes to Town

Alpha Blondie. He's not the youngest guy in the world, but his youthful spirit shines through in his colourful choice of knitwear.
It was a garden party on a coldish day so I wore this peplum lace dress with a pink blazer.
Rolled out with my usual crew - Sauti Sol & Marek.

Clearly something very hilarious happened; with my sister Janet.

And we posed it up with the legend Alpha Blondie!

In deep discussions about future collaborations and loud style.

Our hostess-with-the-mostest Madame Valerie Coulibaly, Honourable Consul of Cote d'Ivoire.
Those glasses. Alpha Blondie has such a magnanimous spirit; made me proud to be an '80s child from Cote'Ivoire.

I'm not exactly a reggae fan, nor was I impressed by the artist's no-show last Friday night as we all waited in a field for a concert that never was. In spite of all the drama, Alpha Blondie is a music legend, hailing from the country I was born in (Cote d'Ivoire), and with a warm face and even warmer heart. We loved meeting him.
