Shingai, legendary frontwoman and bassist of The Noisettes is leading the frontline of this years’ Africa Fashion Week London 2019 as its official brand ambassador.
The British-Zimbabwean artiste, whose name means “to be bold, courageous, or strong” in the Shona language, is at an exciting time in her career. She is beginning a new ground-breaking chapter with a new EP called ‘Ancient Futures’.
The EP sees Shingai at the vanguard of a new era of pop. Live instruments and future-forward programming sit comfortably beside the melodies and rhythms inspired by her Southern African heritage.
As a fashion focussed strong modern woman, she has both feet firmly planted in Africa and in Britain. Super stylish and known for her creativity and fearlessness with design, Shingai embodies the modern afro-fashionista and is a perfect fit to represent AFWL2019.
Guests will be in for a treat as they will get to listen to Shingai at AFWL2019 when she performs on the Celebrity Catwalk Show, 7pm on Saturday 10 August.
