Hamamat Montia

montia

This beautiful sista is Hamamat Montia.  She is a beautiful African model.  This is an interview she did with  Debonair magazine.

To begin with, Hamamat is fully Ghanaian. Her dad is Sisala from Kandia Upper West Region and her mum is from Bongo in the Upper East Region of Ghana. Now this is what you probably did not know. Hamamat was born in Bolgatanga but moved to Accra in her tot stages. Her early days were characterized by happy memories shared with her extended family with lots of kids while in the northern part of Ghana before moving to Accra. Her mum Aisha Taimoko is everything to her. She is a naturalist, a cook, owned restaurants, sold Shea butter and an organic freak who has continuously influenced her existence to this very day.
The Hamamat we know and have come to love is not a recent development.  Before Malaika she did have a life; she was your typical teenager who would do everything every teenager her age would do. Growing up, visions changed and dreams changed. Miss Malaika came at the stage where she was on the heights of the need to discover herself. It was a life changing experience which greatly impacted her life. The Hamamat brand was bound to succeed and Malaika was just the perfect springboard for this leap which has pushed her into the limelight.

Just like the misconceptions people have of her that have to be cleared, she seeks to clear the misconceptions that exist about her people in the northern part of Ghana. Most dominant of which is that people in the north are afraid of getting rich because they think it will change their life. “Yes my people are mostly poor but it doesn’t translate they are deprived of the zeal for success. Just like everybody they have dreams and aspirations and yearn to be heard. Although contentment is settling they are a happy people in spite of their circumstances. So this is why I do what do I what I do to tell their story with fashion.

Lately, you’ll see a lot of Hamamat on social media in something African. The direction of that is to showcase Africa in every sense; be it in terms of fashion or its places particularly the northern part of Ghana.
Hamamat is a proud African brand because Hamamat is an African woman showcasing Africa everywhere. On the other hand, Hamamat is not associated with any particular brand house. She wears what she feels reflects her identity. “You would mostly see me wear Kakaa though and that is because she understands my style preference and knows very well I like to represent myself in what I wear. But aside her, if I feel any other particular designer suits what I represent, I will wear their work. For instance Suzzy in Osu. I feel happy wearing her designs because my business supports her livelihood and that puts a smile on my face. It doesn’t matter the size of the designer I will wear their works so far it suits my brand.”

Hamamat is a creative person and she likes to express that by contributing to the designing of what she wears. She actually has a say in what she wears. Also, Hamamat does everything African. That is the trademark. Some may think it’s limiting but Africa is the origination of many styles we see around us. The influence of African fashion is ever reaching into almost every other culture you may think about and this is not surprising because Africa is the hub of civilization and fashion is one the few remnants of this influence we have on the world. So in a few words, she does a variety of African-influenced styles from ranging from vintage, modern, contemporary, and simplistic to hip. She doesn’t put herself into one box of style because that to her is limiting.

She has two beautiful girls; Zuri and Safari who are both 4 years and 15 months respectively. But at heart, she insists she is a mother to any child who loves to teach others just as she would teach her own. “It wasn’t hard. It was more like an innate part of my being so I just embraced what was truly within and it took my kids to bring in that changed in my life. “
According to her, she doesn’t need a specific day such as mother’s day because she treasures each day and shows her love accordingly. Parenting to her is about making long-lasting indelible memories with your kids so she tries to create as many memories each day with them just as her mum shared with her because life is too short to lose even a second of it, she believes.

Life is unpredictable and so is Hamamat so expecting one thing in particular from Hamamat will get you disappointed. But one thing that is definite is that whatever that is going to come from her in the future will be impactful and amazing. As she travels all over Africa and her own country she will continually draw inspiration which will spiral her into doing and achieving more. So all I can say is that the future is bright with a daring mama bear who draws inspiration to change the world from her baby cubs.

Pan African Proclamation of 2016

RBG Man...

Hotep family! It’s your brother KP.  I hope everyone is doing well.  I enjoyed my little break from posting. I thought this would be a good post for my return. Here at Kushite Kingdom I have always promoted  the idea of being Pan African. As well as covering topics like Black consciousness,economics,African culture and Black liberation. In exposing the lies that we are told about our history, I’ve tried my best to wake up my people. Many of us get so much disinformation in the media we are very confused.  That’s why I do my best to get out important information to my people. Even if I offend other races in the process. Offending people is not my concern.   If I was scared to offend others I would’ve stop blogging a long time ago.The survival of my people is my main concern.  I have always believed  that black consciousness was a spiritual path based on health,wellness amd knowledge of self. Black consciousness is appreciation for our African heritage,our people and families. And real  power is about determination and self control.  You can call this a proclamation,manifesto,mission statement or public declaration.  But I just wanted to list some ideas and things we as black people should be doing if we want to survive as well as change our mindset.  We have a lot of work ahead of us.  But together we can do this.  I’m sure some of you will like some of it…and others will disagree.  But that’s okay. I’m open to any suggestions anyone may have.

26. Do not be slut or whore.  It is very self destructive  and shows your immaturity. This applies to women….and men.
27. Assume that all non-blacks do not have your best interest in mind.
28. Brothers: Do not display a misogynistic mindset. Hating and despising black women shows ignorance and no growth as a man.  You must learn to respect your woman. Let sistas express themselves although it is okay to disagree at times. But give sistas their space.
29. Sistas: Do not be a man hating feminist.  Do not put down or degrade your man. Use words of encouragement to uplift your man.  And realize that men want to be leaders. Every gender has their role and should compliment the other gender.  A relationship is a partnership that both can benefit from.
30.  You must realize that the masculine principle  and feminine principle compliment one another. And that black men and women must work together to strengthen the family unit.
