UK ANTICS: WILEY ADMITS HIS MOBO PERFORMANCE WAS POOR

For those of you who missed it the annual MOBO (Music of Black Orgin) Awards took place last night in Liverpool and UK artist Wiley performed his hit single Heatwave donning a rather fetching sequinned black top. But after watching his performance Wiley is far from happy. I am not gonna lie i did not like that mobo performance …..vocals are off beat tbh… — Wiley (@WileyUpdates) November 4, 2012 That was the worst performance ever … — Wiley (@WileyUpdates) November 4, 2012 ….This is the right performance not MOBO….Wiley []

UK MUSIC: CHERRI VONCELLE – ‘I MISS YOU’ (NAS DAUGHTERS REFIXX)

… This is why I grow to despise the UK music industry more and more as each day passes. Artists like Cherri Voncelle and Vula Malinga  to name but a few are talented, they can SING their backsides off and make good music, but industry executives in this country still continue to sign and push female singers to the forefront whose vocals/talent pale in comparison (An unfair decision usually based on race and on who they consider “marketable”). Anyway I like Cherri’s ‘I Miss You’ and I like how she sings in an English accent and then switches. Your thoughts please. Hit or []

UK ANTICS: K KOKE – THE ONLY ONE (BEHIND THE SCENES VIDEO SHOOT)

I don’t normally post behind the scene footage of video shoots but I have decided to make an exception here because I find this shoot highly amusing for a variety of reasons (you will soon see why). Rapper K Koke is signed to Jay-Z’s ROC Nation label and recently shot the video for his new single The Only One in Hackney, East London. Check out the behind the scenes footage below. [Via The Lala Report] Your thoughts please….

UNSIGNED UK ARTIST INFECTA TURNS DOWN KANYE WEST

Unsigned UK artist Infecta has announced via Twitter that he sensationally turned down an offer to sign to rapper Kanye West’s label G.O.O.D Music. The rising star who has so far notched up 2 million YouTube views tweeted: https://twitter.com/Infecta/status/224476934824923136 Check out Infecta below. … I bet this was disappointing news for Kanye. Infecta would have been a great addition to his label. But signing to an artist’s label nearly always ends in tears.
