More than just beautiful: The Huawei MateBook family combines aesthetic with intelligence. Here is how!



In his book The Philosophy of Fine Art, Georg Hegel says that “Art is the sensuous presentation of ideas.” With this in mind, one could argue that the beauty of a product is of far greater significance than the product itself – becoming a source of joy that lights up our lives and our minds. This applies to the new HUAWEI MateBook family, which not only comes with an impressive 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processor, but brings simplicity and intelligence to the smart office experience.


Pure and simple design

Less is more. We are increasingly seeing a trend toward minimalism– particularly among the younger generation.

Pure and simple is the key concept of the HUAWEI MateBook design. The HUAWEI MateBook X follows the design principle of pure and a unibody design, which means that lines and holes are reduced as much as possible while more functions are integrated into it. This design can “hide” the parts that don’t need to be exposed for a more pure, minimalist look. For instance, the bezel-less HUAWEI Infinite FullView Display, Free Touch touchpad and hidden speakers use a simple design featuring fewer lines. Meanwhile, the Huawei Share tag is removed from the original location and integrated into the touchpad. The Fingerprint Power Button also combines two features together, which is highly integrated for true simplicity.


Present the beauty of colours in a natural way

With a simple and pure design, the colour finish has become one of the most important elements in attracting consumers.

When it comes to product design, colours serve as a visual symbol, conveying different emotions and messages − as well as a marker to distinguish different consumer groups. This is also reflected in the HUAWEI MateBook family. Using a natural approach, Huawei has used advanced technologies and processing techniques to create a range of premium colour variants.


An example is the deep, elegant, greenish-blue Emerald Green on the latest addition to the HUAWEI MateBook family, the HUAWEI MateBook X Pro Series. The colours used in the HUAWEI MateBook family are subtle composite colours such as Emerald Green, requiring a complicated production process. However, the effort is worth it, as all the products exude a premium feel, taking the HUAWEI MateBook’s aesthetic design to the next level.


Applying the smartphone mindset to PCs to showcase the charm of technology

The most fundamental difference between the aesthetic HUAWEI MateBook family and its competitors comes from where Huawei excels – applying its smartphone mindset to its PC products. This allows HUAWEI MateBooks to deliver a range of competitive user experiences, while also bringing a uniquely aesthetic design.

When it comes to smartphones, many people will think of the stunning HUAWEI Mate series. In fact, the HUAWEI MateBook family has continued to build on this smartphone mindset and design concept. For instance, the HUAWEI MateBook range keeps consistency with HUAWEI Mate Series smartphones in lightweight design, FullView Display, touch support, colours and more.


Based on this smartphone mindset, Huawei has brought a series of design breakthroughs to the HUAWEI MateBooks. Among them is the HUAWEI MateBook X Pro that features a HUAWEI FullView Display, Recessed Camera, 3:2 aspect ratio and other innovative designs. With a 91% screen-to-body ratio, it also offers a larger viewing area while retaining a compact body. Another example is the HUAWEI MateBook X Series and HUAWEI MateBook Series. Both are equipped with a screen featuring high-precision multi-touch support. In addition to the innovative three-finger swipe screenshot feature, they support Multi-screen Collaboration, which allows users to drag and drop files between a smartphone and the laptop, delivering smartphone-like touch control experience.


These innovations have been recognised by the industry and consumers and as a result, more and more manufacturers are now investing in FullView and narrow-bezel designs.

In terms of quality, the HUAWEI MateBook family always applies tougher quality standards that are higher than the industry standard. For example, the HUAWEI MateBook family has been subjected to Type-C port durability tests over 10,000 times, including 5 million keyboard durability tests, 25,000 laptop hinge opening and closing durability tests, 320,000 fingerprint button durability tests and one million touchpad click durability tests, to bring users trusted and reliable quality.


The essence of design is to create things for humans based on the laws of beauty. The design of the HUAWEI MateBook family not only brings ultimate industrial design and human-machine interaction to the fore, but they also impress consumers with a beautiful aesthetic design. HUAWEI MateBooks bring an unimagined design concept to life, and let consumers experience them when using the devices.



Wiyaala and PatchBay Band From Ghana Make History in Dubai



On Saturday 23rd October 2021, Ghanaian musicians, Wiyaala and the Patchbay Band put up a history-making show at Burj Park in Downtown Dubai at the maiden edition of the All Africa Festival, an event created by Nina Olatoke and supported by Emaar Dubai promoting African culture as a global conversation.


In the shadow of the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, what better advocate for Africa can there be than Wiyaala, who opened her set with her signature tune “Tinambanyi”, a song which foretells the rise of the under-appreciated. This was followed by “Siiko ” which speaks of African tradition in conflict with modern ways and urges the people of Africa not to lose sight of their roots and identity. In “People Don’t Stop”, Wiyaala was again on message urging her people to keep fighting for their dreams. The finale was her hit song “Yaga Yaga” which had the audience enthusiastically joining her in a call and response. The power of the performance was made possible by the skilled musicians of Patchbay who were on top of their game, revelling in the charisma, vocal power and athleticism of the lady who for good reason is also known as the Lioness of Africa.




Africa is more than a place; it is in the heart, minds and souls of the people. The event focuses on bringing this cultural experience to life through music, entertainment, fashion, art, food and many other cultural expressions. The mission is to showcase the vibrant energy, beauty, culture and diversity of Africa in all her expressions. To introduce Africa to the African and the rest of the world. The festival is partnered by EMAAR, one of the largest real estate developers in the UAE known for various large-scale projects such as developing Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world, Ojamea, West Blue Consulting, UAE Africa Networking Group, Kiza and Narratives PR UAE.

I have a very funny side – Joselyn Dumas



Known mostly for her serious roles, Ghana’s on-screen sweetheart Joselyn Dumas is about to bring out her funny side in the new Showmax Original Ghana Jollof where she shares the screen with other fan faves like James Gardiner, Mawuli Gavor, Basketmouth, and Funnybone.


We caught up with the Northern Affair star, where she dished on her Ghana Jollof co-stars, her ideal script and who makes the best jollof!


What was your reaction when you first heard the name Ghana Jollof?


I thought ‘Oh my God, these jollof wars! Can we just declare the winner already?’ Then I got a call from Basketmouth and he said, ‘This is something really special to me, I’m looking for a way to do a proper collaboration between Ghanaians and Nigerians. We’re one people and this is a way for me to let people know that we’re the same.’ So it became a really nice discussion on the phone. I’ve always enjoyed Basketmouth’s jokes and I’ve seen Flatmates a couple of times so I was excited when he said he had a role for me in Ghana Jollof.


Tell us about your character on Ghana Jollof and would you say there are any similarities between Joselyn and the role you play?


I play Abena, who is an HR manager in Mensah’s bakery. She’s a bit of a senior and has a thing for the boss, Kweku. There’s some rivalry between herself and the secretary, who is her much younger subordinate. So everyone is driving to get Kweku’s attention and Abena feels like she has a bit of an edge because she’s the HR manager.


Now I’ve had a crush on a few people but I don’t think I would penalise anyone who is my subordinate because they have a crush on the same person as I do. Healthy competition is nice but I wouldn’t use my position to intimidate anyone out of spite.


Tell us a bit about your star-studded co-cast.


I’m very happy with the cast. On the show I’ve worked closely with Basketmouth, James Gardiner, Funnybone and Buchi. I just met Buchi for the first time and he’s hilarious.


Everyone brought their A-game to the show. We had so many funny moments on set where everyone was just rolling on the floor with laughter.


Obviously Basketmouth was in charge of the production so he’s still the boss, but when it’s time for play, he plays, and when it’s time for work he’s quite serious.


He’s also made sure we’re taken care of. We had a conversation where he said to me that he realised, while sitting down in meetings, that there’s a lot of disservice that has been done to a lot of creatives and talents in our industry and he’s hoping to make a difference.


He’s already doing that, giving all these young people a chance. For instance, the director is quite young and so is the writer and he’s given them a chance to showcase their talent and I think that’s commendable. I also work closely with James Gardiner (Kweku in Ghana Jollof) on Akwaba Magic’s Dede and he’s very talented. He’s eye candy but he also takes the job seriously. Funnybone is my friend whom I’ve known for years. This is his first time acting (in a drama), and he’s doing amazingly.


Would you describe this as your first comedic role?


Not at all. Everybody thinks that I’m quite a serious person but I have a very funny side once I get comfortable around people. So I’m always looking for that script that will bring out that side of Joselyn. I’m doing that now in Accra on Dede and my character is hilarious without even trying and I absolutely love playing that role. Playing Abena on Ghana Jollof, I’ve had some humorous moments with Basketmouth and Buchi. So I have played quite a few funny roles. People always see me in a serious sense but it’s just a protective guard.


What would you take away from working on Ghana Jollof?


Teamwork and camaraderie. Everybody was looking out for each other on the set. From the crew to the cast, everyone was hungry to see this show succeed and even go beyond Season 1. That’s what I’m taking away because it’s about time we work together and we go far together. I see that with everybody here. We would come on set by 6am and by 7pm, we’re done. That tells you the guys are passionate and they really want to get this done. Nobody feels superior to anyone; we’re all just equally coming together to create magic.


Did you feel any pressure to get it right given that it’s Showmax’s first comedy-drama?


Well thankfully I don’t have to say the jokes. But like with every production I do, there’s a little bit of pressure. Even if I’ve done it a few times, it’s always new in a sense. Also, I always feel like everything I do has to be better than what I’ve done before, so yes, I’m under pressure.


What do you want fans to take away from Ghana Jollof?


I want anyone who watches this show to have fun and be entertained. There’s drama and comedy; a lot of times when you see comedy, there’s a bit of slapstick but I love the fact that there’s drama and comedy with Ghana Jollof. There’s a storyline to it and once you follow it, it’s intriguing. Even as a character, I’m entertained. Sometimes I think ‘Why is Abena doing this? What is her problem?’. It’s also a very relatable series: everyone has had a crush on somebody and everybody has loved the attention they’ve got from people who have had crushes on them. There’s also somebody who has always felt like an underdog. Everyone can see themselves in a particular character on the show.


Ghana jollof or Nigerian jollof?


Ghana jollof because I make the best Ghana jollof anyday!
