This week we catch up with songstress Jebonair aka Janet. We met through mutual friend Shay - from last week's Chronicle - at one of her gigs in Soho, London. Not only a talented musical artist but her signature headpiece - a gold one on that night (I'd never seen it before apart from on Cher I believe) - stood out along with her infectious positive and bubbly energy.
It has been good seeing and getting to know her better - and even moreso whilst creating her Chronicle. Get to know a bit about Jebonair - continue reading her Chronicle!
M-SEW: Where did you grow up?
JEBONAIR: I grew up in Malawi and then moved to Hull in Yorkshire.

My bed! Love the feeling of being cosy on some plush pillows covered in a nice blanket.
