13 year old Dionne Bromfield sang live last night on ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ with her “godmother” Amy Winehouse singing backing vocals. Obviously Dionne’s connection to Amy has opened many doors for her ( hanging out in nightclubs with Amy, signed to a major label, appearing on Strictly etc), but the girl can sing. I was impressed. However not sure what her ‘”godmother” Waste Woman Winehouse was doing. Was she even singing? All I could hear were the male backing vocalists… And Winehouse looked completely […]

I am really happy because Whitney’s voice is still there! This is the best she has sounded in sometime. Ok it isn’t exactly the same voice we all grew to know and love back in the 80s/90s but this was a good effort. Check out the studio audience’s reaction at the end. People are just happy she’s back.

Production team Perempay & Dee have teamed up with songstress Shola Ama and produced the uptempo track ‘DJ Play’. I quite like the track. It’s catchy and I’ve always liked Shola’s voice. I’m glad she’s back. But I’m not that keen on the new blond look. As for the video..well after watching it I just have one question… who the hell thought it would be a good idea to feature JACK TWEED (Jade Goody’s waste man widower) in the video??? (from mark 0.35). […]

I was left shocked and confused last week when I discovered that two of the most influential individuals from within the ‘rich’, ‘glamorous’ and ‘progressive’ world of UK “Urban” entertainment blocked me from seeing their Twitter updates. When it finally sunk in that Britain’s self proclaimed no.1 comedian and the Head of a popular music channel had blocked me I was left shaken to the core. So shaken, that I still haven’t recovered. What did I say/do to deserve such harsh treatment??? […]

BBC Radio personality the “Big Dawg” Tim Westwood had this to say about Kanye West’s now infamous VMAs “stunt” which later left country singer Taylor Swift in floods of tears…. Via Digital Spy “To be honest, I think it highlighted the racial divide. What he did was some ignorant street s**t and there’s her, this 19-year-old white girl,” he told DS. “I love him for doing it but he chose the wrong victim. He should have done it when there was some rock band or […]
