It was the kind of meet-cute that belonged in a medical rom-com. 1983 was the year. Christine Grady was a clinical nurse specialist at the National Institutes of Health in Washington, D.C., who had recently returned from a two-year stint in Brazil with Project Hope, a humanitarian non-governmental organisation.

  Kilo Kish is only in town for a few days. However, before she returns to her home in California, she's chosen the boutique Spark Pretty for our shopping expedition, which she located on Google. My boss, Buybea.com editor Chioma Nnadi, insists we'll get along despite the fact that we've never met. We couldn't help ourselves, could we? I am immediately taken by Kish after only a few minutes of meeting her. The L.A.-based singer is dressed in a vintage black lace Victorian top, Doc Martens with leopard print pony hair embellishments, and a XXL leopard print hat outside the vibrant Lower East Side business.
