A CAUSE FOR CELEBRATION!!

"Mummy's got you..."

"Mummy's got you..."



So today’s entry falls only two days before my lil man’s THIRD BIRTHDAY & it’s fair to say that I am equally as hyped as he is!! I am seriously excited about his day!! 🙂
Without gushing on, Amari is an extraordinary character that has endured his fair share of challenges already in his short existence to date. Those of you that know, know. For those don’t, you can grasp a good idea from one of my earlier blog entries: Back On The Grind…March 2011 …now re-read it from from HIS perspective. Chokes me up everytime.

Today, he exudes sheer love & his sole purpose in life is to have as much fun as he can!! On a serious note, I can & continue to learn so much from him.

1) What do you do & how well do you do it?

I’m a Rap Artist that does it to my best of my ability.

2) Where do you foresee yourself 12 months from today?

In 12 months I see myself on TV shows and hearing my music everywhere.

3) What was one of the most memorable times in your life?

I remember when I was young my father and I use to play Kurtis Blow and Levert driving around the city. It starting me rapping.

4) Given the resources, what one change would you make in the world & why?

If I had the resources I will probably open up a after school center for low income families. That has variety of activities. Keep them out the streets. 

5) What do you think of my blog? (Message for my readers)

I Think QueenBrit is official. Not only is she promoting herself, but she’s promoting upcoming artists. She feels the hunger, making noise from another Side of the world. I love the Blog keep uplifting. 

iJohn Storm’s song selection of the day is:

‘All About The Benjamins’ – Puff Daddy ft The Notorious B.I.G, The LOX & Lil’ Kim

Sooo, the weight loss ting! *sighs*

Well, I’m still on it but boy, I hit a bit of a brick wall to say the least! I ate & ate & ate whilst in LDN (all that good Brit stuff!) & it’s fair to say, messed up my whole exercise regime…& the rest!!

Turning it into a positive though as a result of feeling thoroughly disappointed with myself all week! I’m back on it & am giving myself a year…aiming for the pow! 😉

Those of you that know me know that I love to cook…& this new Mediterranean way of eating has definitely influenced my cooking style! Check out last night’s dinner…yum!!

Diet?

Diet?



I ain’t ever gonna survive a diet(!), so I’ve decided to make healthy eating interesting!!

  • 2 x fried dumplings
  • 2 pieces of fried Sea Bream
  • Avocado salad: Lettuce, tomato, carrots, olives, sweetcorn & avocado – with olive oil & white wine vinegar drizzled on top
  • Onion, garlic & tomato sauce (for the fish)

I’m A Rapper, Songwriter & a Singer, and I do it extremely well.

2) Where do you foresee yourself 12 months from today?

12 months from today i see myself coming back from my tour to Africa, my album launch & video launch, MORE RECOGNITION basically. And I’m looking to give a some of the procedings of my events to charity.

3) What was one of the most memorable times in your life?

The most memorable time in my life was definately when i lost my dad at the age of ten . I had to relocate from Nigeria to America Then to the U.K . Thats when i started to write to relieve my pain and i realised i could Rap and song write.


4) Given the resources, what one change would you make in the world & why?
If i had the resources I would make the world a better place by empowering the youth with more opportunities because I know whats its like to grow up with so much talent and not having the right channels and opportunities to channel it through.



5) What do you think of my daily blog? (Message for my readers)

I really think it has a cosy, warm feel to it. Its educativel AS WELL. It has been very user friendly.
