Salma Sky Speaks Her Truth About Her Music Career, Motherhood, Ethnicity & Zambia's Entertainment Industry

There is nothing I love more than when people authentically embody love, art and culture all in one. Our guest today does just that, with even more to offer. Salma Sky is a Zambian born and raised singer/songwriter who, after over 10 years in the entertainment industry, is just beginning to uncover the true identity of who she is - not only as an artist but also as a soul. She speaks candidly about being a mother of 4, growing up mixed race in Zambia, moving from studying Law (etc!) to become a singer and her real thoughts on the Zambian entertainment industry. She also speaks about her new album lead song "Free" which will debut on the 28th of October, and how this piece captures the personal evolution that she has finally just begun.  This and more episodes on The Afroverse: the home of everything life, laughter and living in the African universe!  More on Salma Sky: Instagram - @thesalmasky M

10 Paradoxes About Life That Are True | Lessons From Mark Manson

This episode is based on the thoughts of Mark Manson, author of The Subtle Art Of Not Giving A Fuck, where he remarked that: "Some of the most important truths in life are contradictory on the surface. They seem like impossibilities, yet experiences proves them to be obvious over and over again. It isn't until you look a bit deeper, beneath the surface contradictions, that the real grains of wisdom emerge."
