If fashion had a chart, Amina would take the number one spot every single time! 

There’s nothing we love more than to kick back, relax and enjoy The Turn Up with Amina Abdi Rabar and Dj Joe Mfalme every Saturday afternoon on Maisha Magic Plus.

But instead of just enjoying the amazing music mixes and showbiz 411 this tag-team gives us, we find ourselves tuning in for an extra reason – Amina’s fashion. Here are some of our favourite looks from this style star!


“Feeling blue? Wear red”

We love how bold Amina’s Turn Up fashion choices are. This red spaghetti strap dress with a thigh-high slit accessorised with a waist-cinching belt, gold bracelets and a gold necklace, is a winner in our eyes. And isn’t red just the perfect shade for when you’re feeling blue?


“A neon state of mind”

A glam cocktail party look that works for television, a hot date or dinner with the girls? We’re definitely using this as inspiration when we can all go out again! We love that bold neon colour, plus the leather peplum belt that ties the look together. Also, like any self-respecting fashionista, Amina knows you can never go wrong with hoop earrings as big as your hand. We’re obsessed!

“Life isn't perfect, but your jumpsuit can be”

Glam, playful and cute; this stunning jumpsuit ticks every box. We adore the cut, the side-tie-wrap feel, plus the neckline. We love that our girl went easy on the accessories, choosing instead to let the one-piece do all the talking. Extra points for those earrings!


“Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak”

Nothing says “I am proud to be a daughter of Africa” than this look. Kente cloth has been adopted across the globe as a symbol for Pan-Africanism – and this mashup of Afrocentric identity and modern style is gorgeous! Crop top + high waist pants + beret = ❤️


“Live life in warm yellows”

The fanny pack (or waist bag as it is referred to nowadays) has come a long way; from starting out as a money bag for tourists in the ‘80s, to becoming the star of fashion in the last two years! And if it’s in style, Amina’s going to rock it. We love how the yellow adds a pop of colour to this grey, black and white ensemble.


“No such thing, the queen said, as too many sequins”

Sequins here, sequins there, sequins everywhere! Amina sparkles like a true star in one of our favourite looks – a purple, silver and red sequined jacket. We adore how Amina’s nails complement her look. Plus, don’t you just love that chic high twist ponytail? Very fancy!

For a peek at Amina’s wardrobe and more, watch The Turn Up this Saturday at midday, on Maisha Magic Plus!​
