Shot of the day

FINAL VOYAGE: The refloated wreck of the Costa Concordia cruise liner is towed to the Italian port of Genoa last week, ending the cruise liner's final journey to be scrapped two and a half years after it capsized at a cost of 32 lives. The once-luxury liner was dragged into Genoa's Voltri port by several tugboats, four days after leaving its wreck site off the Tuscan island of Giglio in an unprecedented salvage operation.

Monotonous Desiree lacks spark

Artist: Desiree
Album Title: //Nau !A Ta Tite
Producers: Patrick Thaniseb and Standley Hamaseb
Ma /Gaisa music is more popular than ever. Artists like Female Donkey and Lettie continue to fill halls and set stages alight with their catchy lyrics and funky dance moves. That’s why I was so excited to listen to Desiree’s ‘//Nau Ta Tite’ especially because she is a former backup singer for another Damara Punch legend, Stanley.

Eto, what do we have here? This brown, or orange, or maroon shirt is everything that one shouldn’t be caught dead wearing. It was like he was trying to blend in with the NPL Awards background colours. Read more about Fashion police
