BEAUTIFUL SOUL: The songbird plays with vibrant textures and tones in her new video.
Admirers and near everybody else are in awe of the fascinating trajectory that’s defining the career of reggae-soul songstress Sevana. Indeed, she’s growing from strength to strength as a creative artiste and evolving into an increasingly gorgeous and mature young woman. We’ve watched her make the leap from indie songbird (“Sometime Love”, “Nobody Man”) signed to Protoje’s Indigg.Nation label to an RCA Records newbie ready to take the world by storm. She certainly has the look and the talent for it. Witness her latest music videos (for “Mango” and “If You Only Knew”), two visually stunning productions that show off her luminous beauty, which recalls the profile of a young African queen. “Mango”, in particular, which is richly colourful and playful, is testament to how clever and artistic she is. We’re so intrigued to see what she’ll deliver next. [Watch the “Mango” video HERE.]

The Chameleon: Turning heads with her dazzling outfits and flawless face while winning scores of new fans, singer-actress Sakina Deer worked the scene and commanded attention as she vied for top honours in this year’s Jamaica Festival Song Competition, finishing as the best-placed female contestant overall. What’s next for the superbusy showbiz veteran? “I’m going to continue to try and get my lash and makeup business up and running,” she tells The Gleaner’s Avenue E, “and act whenever the opportunity presents itself again, and accept any gift God gives… I have my vision board with plans for my life that have not changed.” BTW, we think Sakina did an awesome job with her Festival entry “We Are Jamaica.” More music please!
