No one is saying she is the new Aaliyah! K? We're cool? Alright, then. Let's move on. Thabsie, who featured in Kwesta's mega hit "Ngiyaz'fela Ngawe", is embarking on a career set to change the South African R&B landscape, as she recently told GQ.co.za, where she also points to the likes of Brandy and Aaliyah as her inspiration. It's hard to miss, the Aaliyah influence, especially in as far as her sense of style is concerned (it's in the music, too. Have you heard her new single "Cry").
The sporty aesthetic that permeates her style sensibility is what many would remember as the late R&B star Aaliyah's signature, only Aaliyah would of course pair her crops mostly with baggy jeans, and a tomboyish swagger. We love that Thabsie puts her own spin on it, and never looks like she's trying too hard.
She is so far displaying a knack for effortless style, but such doesn't always translate into red carpet perfection, but whatevs! We love how she looks, and she's just as dope on the mic!
