Summer 2008 Issue: The Good Life



It took a while to publish MIMI's Summer 2008 issue, but with double the number of articles, and stories touching countries such as Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa, Togo, Ethiopia, and Cameroon, this issue is worth the wait! Nigerian actress and producer, Dakore Egbuson graces MIMI's Summer 2008 cover and is featured in the story Nollywood's Darling, where she opens up about her passions, her triumphs, and her aspirations. MIMI also has a feature story about fellow Nollywood star, Ramsey Noah in the article Nollywood And The Northern. Rounding out our African film feature stories is the article From Khayelitsha To The World Stage, about South African actress Pauline Malefane, who is best known for her role as Carmen in U-Carmen e-Khayelitsha.

With double the content than our regular issues, the summer issue is not all about Africa on the big screen. MIMI has fashion tips to live by from The House of Style, a review of the best designs from Sanlam South Africa Fashion Week's Winter Collections, a real-life account about Being The Other Woman, and motivational tips to get you to Live Life Without Limits, among many other stories. For more of what the Summer 2008 issue has to offer, visit MIMI Magazine. Happy reading!

It's nice to see that Mimi is still around!!!! I love Dakore for embracing her natural beauty and choosing dreadlocks instead of the horrid wigs that so many actresses wear and cheers to Mimi for showing that African women's beauty is diverse.

Thank you to Kara Weeks for being so honest about being the "other" woman. We need to be honest about useless men and call a spade a spade.

Gr8 Issue! love the Nollywood part. Wonder why our ppl don't appreciate our own talents enough. These ppl r putting us on the map, but most our naija folks in naija don't give them the props they deserve.

I don't know why some people are crazy about the blog "stuffs African People Hate" (or something similar). It does not make me laugh at all and I find it very boring! I guess you and I don't have the same sense of humour...And I think all voices, opinions, perspectives have their place on the world wide web. People who complain about injustice have the right to do so, especially if verbalizing their feelings help them to go through difficult times. Who are we to decide how people should react to things that hurt their feelings? Not laughing about stereotypes and racism does not mean that one has no sense of humour. It just means that we laugh about different things...I wonder whether the owner of 'MIMI' will publish this comment which is obviously very different from all the praises above! In the event this comment is published, it will be a good thing for the freedom of speech!
