We’re in October and that means we are preparing to say goodbye to 2021.
Before we do, we have to thank 2021 for the music starr that debuted earlier in the year. The young and dangerous artiste, Ayra Starr, shines on this edition of The Cover. We find out how she manages her mental health, the impact both Nigeria and Benin Republic have on her sound and much more.
And just in case you need yet another sign to take that trip, we’ve provided various spots and things you must do when visiting the Republic of Benin. Whether you’re looking for adventure, relaxation or a new culture to experience, we’ve curated the best places to go.
Mental Illness Awareness Week and Mental Health Awareness Day also happen this month. This year, we’re bringing eating disorders to the center of the conversation and making you aware of why they aren’t as simple as a lifestyle choice.
And lastly, we dare you to be bold and take control by using social media to your advantage, ditching your usual nude eyeshadow for vibrant colors and by walking out of that friends with benefits situation before it ends in tears.
