Now there seems to be a slight problem here… the comedians in the blue corner representing the UK – Eddie Kadi, Richard Blackwood, Slim and of course Kevin J will NOT be in attendance.

Why do I get the feeling that the blue corner were the last people to know about this gig.

Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

I am guessing NO! So please let me provide this link to help you all out.

HELP FUND BLACK HISTORY 365: A BEGINNERS PROGRAMME TO RE-TELLING AFRICAN HISTORY

Black History 365: A Beginners Programme To Re-Telling African History.

Summer Programme 2014/2015


Inspired by love, a thirst for knowledge and a desire to inform; the Black History 365 project
 intends to seek out and share the stories of African people whose narrative has been lost through out history. People who inspire us to reach higher, to be better than we are. My goal is to paint African history from a collective, honest, national and world perspective. Since the youth are our future, they are the most vital part of this project.

We would like to work with the young from all over London and explore the untaught history of the first Black Republic: Haiti. This history is vital to the understanding and development of young people (especially those of African origin) as it answers many questions about the African contribution to the fight for freedom and their inspiration to global events. Our aim is to give young people the tools and guidance to understand the history of African people during the period of enslavement and give the alternative narration of events. As the saying goes; you will never know where you are going unless you know where you have been.   

Please help us show the education system, heritage fund and anyone who has ever denied us funding that it’s possible to successfully fund a project by people who have a keen interest into the hidden history of Africa. 

We recently completed the first phase of the project which was primarily focused on African civilisations before the period of enslavement and colonisation. We had a group of 20 who regularly attended and participated in the weekend workshops at the Museum of London Docklands. 

However due to a lack of funds (as we are entirely self funded with small donations from supporters) we had to terminate the project half way through, resulting in many emails pleading for us to reinstate the programme. We considered going for the arts council funding but were turned away due to the subject matter of our project.

Marvia Borrell founder and CEO of Black River Chocolate has launched the luxury chocolate in Selfridges.

Jamaican born Marvia has more has more than 20 years’ experience in the global hospitality industry and has worked around the world. She currently devotes her time to building the Black River brand and is supported by an international team based in Jamaica, the UK, Belgium and France.

As a self-confessed chocaholic, Marvia was inspired to develop Black River by the simple fact that, although it had a unique standing for the quality of its cocoa on the world stage, Jamaica didn’t have its own luxury chocolate brand.

After extensive research and testing, she finally arrived at what has so far proved to be the ideal formula, and launched the brand.

Marvia says:

“We are passionate about sharing the finest flavour in the world – Jamaican cocoa. We hope that once the world gets to know about Black River Chocolate, they’ll be just as passionate about tasting it.”

Congratulations Marvia.

VIDEO: TIM WESTWOOD LIVE IN NIGERIA (LAGOS) / SOMEBODY CALL DJ ABRANTEE

April 15, 2014 Leave a comment

Last week Capital Xtra’s resident Hip Hop DJ, Tim ‘big dawg’ Westwood, spread his brand of nonsense to Lagos Nigeria.

The Industry Nite threw up quite the spectacle . It was a special ‘Industry Nite with Europe’s finest disc jockey, Tim Westwood, where the legendary DJ was in his element, thrilling the audience with his mix, and interjecting vocals. 

Pulse.ng

LMAO – This gave me my biggest laugh of the day.

“If you’re proud to be Nigerian make some noise” 

“If you’re  proud to be black scream”

Then all you hear is Rick Ross rapping “I ride for my niggas”.

I can’t….

And what’s this?

“Tim Westwood is one of the first DJs to play African music in the UK” and Tim “has single handedly promoted Afro Beats and Nigerian music”.

Afro Beats DJ - DJ Abrantee

Afro Beats DJ – DJ Abrantee

Erm… WHAT???? *CONFUSED FACE*

Somebody call DJ Abrantee! I am sure he was the one responsible for putting Afro Beats on the mainstream map.
