A Glimpse Of Blanck Digital’s Issue 3: Rita Dominic Is Dating Again, Funmi Iyanda Is Feminist + Ice Prince Is A Suave Lyricist
Yesterday, the 1st of 4 covers for Blanck Digital magazine’s 3rd issue featuring Adora Oleh and her edgy look surfaced online; now you get to see the other 3 fabulous covers with Rita Dominic, Ice Prince and Funmi Iyanda.
Having added to her age, the magazine caught up with stunning silver screen actress Rita Dominic to dish on the past, present and her wonderful future. In her interview, Rita touches on topics like new projects and upcoming movies; but she also talks about a something we rarely catch her dishing on – her love life.
She tells the magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Franka Asindi;
On Dating someone
Yes I am dating someone and I am in a a happy place. I am good, That is the farthest I can go with you on this topic (laughs)
On if he is someone ‘they’ know and if he’s in the entertainment industry
How would I know if “we” know him Franka? Sorry love, he’s not – now let me be.
We will definitely keep our ears on this one.
Next up we have the fabulous ‘Funmi Iyanda’
She was the face we woke up to on her highly syndicated show ‘the morning dawn’ on the national TV station NTA channel 10. Now Funmi Iyanda is having the time of her life running her production company from London and Lagos.
In her interview with Funmi talks on what her life is like now, being a feminist and what she thinks of the Nigerian broadcast industry.
On being a feminist she says
I am a feminist, l like being female and would like to be allowed to be that in whatever form l chose. That’s feminism. I also like men, food, lipstick, shoes, well-tailored clothing, underwear, rap music, Fuji. Music and Tarantino films.
On advice for and on the new broadcasting approach in Nigeria
To give a few helpful tips on presenting; I would need a full semesters course schedule for that l’m afraid. For now, let’s just agree that regarding presenting, can people stop talking in those infernal pseudo American accents? It’s rather sad and utterly crass.
And then there’s Ice Prince!
Ice Prince has been taking Africa and the world by storm with his fast lyrics and his suave style. In an interview with Ayodeji Rotinwa, the rapper talks on the man behind the lyrics.
Ice Prince dishes on he style, how staying true to his style of music and himself has brought him this far and more.
