Torrence Hatch Jr., better known by his stage name Boosie Badazz or simply Boosie, is an American rapper, singer, songwriter, actor, record producer and executive. He was born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana by his mother Connie Hatch.
Many know the former death row sentenced inmate as one who never holds back his tongue. In fact, on many occasions, he has been compared to the late Tupac Amaru Shakur for his controversial stance. But the rapper’s story is not all doom and gloom, Boosie’s is very politically inclined socially and intellectually and his net worth, as of 2017, was estimated at 2million dollars, of which he uses to help raise kids of lost friends and family members.
In a recent video obtains by the shade room, the rapper is seen calling out and insulting black people waiting in line for the Gucci store to open. He stated “Gucci Don’t like black people, I don’t know why yall in that line” He repeated himself and then continued “Yall Stupid as a mother f****, All Yall”.
The insults were uncalled as we have all been there or are there in some cases, be it food, music or else. However, the need to awaken clients and consumers, not just black ones, in regards to the reality of their producers is essential, especially in this political awakening. Although Gucci executes a lot of silent marketing to blacks by targeting African American and African artists, they are also prone to a lot of racism in the industry.
Not sure the basis as to why Boosie made the said claims but it wasn’t too long ago the company launched its blackfaced just of which it caught a lot of heat for.
For too long many fashion houses and fashion media houses like Vogue magazine have been mocking blacks and Africans and getting away with it except for facing minor outrage, which in some cases only promotes them. It’s time they are held accountable financially, and having established popular wealthy figures participating is essential.
UPCOMING TOP EVENTS!
Ghana’s leading fashion event Accra Fashion Week is scheduled for 7-11 December 2022 following their 5th-year celebration last year in 2021. Accra Fashion Week is a platform for African designers that can be compared to fashion weeks across the major capitals. It aims to fill the void which sees tremendous creativity and culture across the continent with the absence of an operating fashion infrastructure.
The epic event took place at Ghana Dubai in Accra, and saw models march down the steps from the Kwame Nkrumah Monument whilst being followed by a spotlight, before circulating the central fountains. Memories of the exciting night still give chills as guests revisit the experience on youtube.
However, rest assured that 2022 is going to be even more exciting with greater performances and an upgraded designer collection. FashionGHANA.com is sure to bring you the exclusives we did on www.FashionGHANA.com/TV. All last year’s shows are available to watch on youtube. Designer’s registration is ongoing on the AccraFashionWeek.org website.
As we embark on another year of celebrating African culture, our theme for 2022 is “Afrofuturism.” This term was created to explore the developing intersection of cultural aesthetic, philosophy of science, and philosophy of history as it relates to the African Diaspora. During this year’s events, Afrochella will bring “Afrofuturism” to life through fashion, food, art and music. In 2019, the African Diaspora returned home to the continent for the “Year of Return.” This year, we will explore the endless possibilities of what “Afrofuturism” could look like in 2022 and beyond.
