Onika Best Newsletter March 2013

It is three months into the year, and let me tell you 2012, was an interesting year.  So we look forward to the future with peace, love, joy and harmony. NO, we won’t look back.

What’s up 4 the future?

A lot of things are going on for the future. One of them is the adult book for children entitled Liib, which will be released as an e book, and will be printed.  The book is an offspring from a painting that Onika Best created using the medium of oil and acrylic.  Onika said she used oil for the actual painting of the woman and acrylic around her symbolizing the potency of ones character and the things that can transpire around you that you do not control.  The Liib painting and book with the music of Onika Best will be launched in Los Angeles, at Leimert Park, under the promotions of the also creative mind of Bambou Diagne, of AD3 Promotions.  This will be a launch to remember as we also embrace fashion African style and good people.

Indrani performs at The Good Life

Have you been to the Good life?

If you have not been to the Good Life, on a Sunday evening you must make it a go to.  Why? Indrani, of course.  She will soothe you with her vocal skills and her natural charisma.  It is a good lime as well, where you can munch on some healthy delights.  If you don’t know where the Good life is, then ask for directions.  Yes Ryminister is around, but his night is Thursday. Hollar!!!

Saturday April 20th 2013

Well…, if you have not heard that Onika Best will be performing two set of forty five at the Lime Grove on the 20th of April, you have heard it now.  She will be joined by ace musician Bert “Panta” Brown.  I have to use the word musician because like Onika Best, Bert “Panta” Brown has style, versatility, along with the element of surprise, and is wonderful at what he does.  They will be giving you covers along with Onika originals.  If you have ever seen Onika perform with Paul Ignatius Springer, then this is another pot, same ingredients.  Lime Grove is one of the newest hot spots for the rich and famous.
