Textured diffusion through the fun prints and volumetric form through the stuffed maxi & mini tiered skirts all contribute to the Safari fashion-experience.

“Through this collection, I have designed different pieces that any woman on a ‘Safari’ would be able to pack and wear for a two week holiday without compromising their personality, character, style aesthetic, mood and everything else that determines what style means to them. It’s all about looking good and feeling good as we go through our ‘Safari’ in life” expresses Liz Ogumbo.

Nicki Minaj faces fans who were ‘lied to’ about R3,000 meet and greets


According to TimesLive Nicki Minaj faces fans who were ‘lied to’ about R3,000 meet and greets

When the show ended just after 10.30pm at the TicketPro Dome‚ some 20 fans waited patiently to meet the rapper. What was meant to be a moment for true “Barbz” ended in disappointment when Minaj said she wouldn’t be doing meet and greets.

Speaking to the group‚ a visibly upset Minaj apologised for keeping fans waiting.

“I’m very sorry for keeping you all waiting‚ but I want you to know that I never approved any meet and greet. I don’t do meet and greets after a show‚ I was literally about to leave. These people lied to you‚ please get your money back‚” she said.

As they had paid almost R3,000 to meet the hip hop sensation‚ Minaj agreed to take group pictures with fans.

She added that she would make sure that fans got their money back.

Among the group were pupils‚ parents and couples‚ some donning Minaj’s signature luminous pink hair.

Despite waiting for almost two hours‚ fans seemed appeased to have a group moment with the American rapper.

The sold-out first night of the Pinkprint SA tour was a success for others as Minaj performed some of her greatest hits like Anaconda‚ Pills & Potions‚ Super Bass and various medleys before ending the show with Starships.

Minaj will be performing at the TicketPro Dome again on Friday before heading off to Durban for her show on Sunday and Cape Town on Tuesday.
