Ammara Brown will be auctioning her red dress which she wore on the Akiliz music video cover shoot. The dress, she said was of sentimental value to her as Akiliz introduced her to the international stage.
“When I look at this dress, I think of two things, one being the most amazing local designer – Sandra Steel (who designed it) and secondly, the time when I decided to turn my pain into power.
“I was on set at 4AM in the morning wearing this dress and trying to shoot the cover advert for Akiliz so I can share it with the world.
“Akiliz is the biggest song I’ve ever had. It broke me onto the international world. It also won award after award so this dress is very special to me,” said Ammara.
Fungisai will be auctioning her leather boots which she wore on the Vanondibatirana music video.
“These are more than just shoes to me. They were the bridge that I had to the heart of young people at a point when they were subdued by obscenities, violence and drugs packaged as the only available music.
“I needed a draw card, something to stop the world so it looks in my direction and these shoes did exactly that. Now it’s time to give them to the next person who’s saying ‘look this direction, I’ve something to offer’.
