The Pata Pata songstress Temi Dollface was featured in the 25th Anniversary Issue of the British GQ.
Temi’s featured photo in the magazine was shot by Nigerian photographer Lakin Ogunbanwo. She is seen in her signature look wearing a stripped black and white flapper hat and polka-dot and stripped earrings.
Below is an excerpt of what the magazine had to say about Temi:
“Our current obsession is “Pata Pata” (it’s Yoruba for “completely”), an imperious, hilarious break-up dance song by British-educated Nigerian singer Temi Dollface, who calls her flamboyant style “drama soul”.
In a dazzling video which drops Ghanaian Azonto dancers into playful parodies of sixties commercials, Dollface comes across like an African Janelle Monáe.
It’s true that the self-consciously arty Dollface isn’t typical in the endless torrent of music pouring out of West Africa at the moment. The rules that make genres narrow and dull haven’t been written yet, so afrobeats is still a Babel of competing voices and new ideas."
We wish Temi Dollface all the best in her career!
