Masterkraft & Reekado Banks – I Go Dance

What do you do on a Saturday night?

Surely in varies right?
Sometimes, I just want to get lost in music.. in or out
There are times when it's the only way
...and this tune is perfect for it
Masterkraft is so talented, I don't think I've ever heard a poor production from him

and I'm loving the sax

'Ok I go dance, shake my body..'

Burna Boy – Rock Your Body

Yemi Alade - Knack Am

Weekend WOW Factor: Sierra Leone, Mugabe, Nnamdi Kanu

What a week...
Post election protests and violence in Kenya, Charlottesville civil unrest , Sierra Leone floods, Kagame sworn in for another 7 years ( On behalf of the people of the DRC 'congrats')
Grace Mugabe ( have mercy what now) , protests outside Abuja House in London ( even if it was tiny) , Bruce Forsths's departure ( 'cuddly toy cuddly toy') , vans recklessly, mowing people down and to top it all off I've had the flu all week

Well hot damn!...Has the world lost its way?


President Kagame


Abuja Hse Protest


Can somebody please tell me what this is? :-]
Somebody come get your husbands..


Every year during and between the rainy season ( June - Oct) Sierra Leone experiences heavy flooding. The hardest hit/most affected, tend to be the poorest communities, with floods ravaging homes and often taking lives.
Whilst the recent devastating floods may be the worst experienced by Sierra Leone in years, little has been done year -on - year to mitigate or guard against these annual floods. In fact, despite warnings against the continued levels of deforestation, poor sanitation, ineffective town and country planning, it's fair to say that very little change has taken place with regards to preparing for the ( expected) heavy rainfall.

Critics argue that current ministers are simply just too busy building mansions, buying homes abroad, educating their children abroad, and re allocating government funds to personal accounts .. to use the money to develop communities, take the precautions necessary, or simply put...care
That's what critics say.

Here is a list of current ministers
(and the people to write to should you feel so inclined)

His Excellency Dr Ernest Bai Koroma President & Minister of Defence

Ambassador Dr Victor Bockarie Foh Vice President

Mr Momodu L. Kargbo Minister of Finance and Economic Development

Dr Samura M.W. Kamara Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Co-operation

Mr Maya Kaikai Minister of Local Government and Rural Development

Mr Joseph F. Kamara Attorney-General and Minister of Justice

Mr Mohamed Bangura Minister of Information and Communications

Ms. Nanette Thomas Minister of Political and Public Affairs

Capt. Momodu Allieu Pat-Sowe Minister of Trade and Industry

Dr Minkailu Bah Minister of Education, Science and Technology

Alhaji Ibrahim Kemoh Sesay Minister of Works, Housing, And Infrastructure

Mr Henry O. Macauley Minister of Energy

Alhaji Minkailu Mansaray Minister of Mines and Mineral Resources

Mr Leonard Balogun Koroma Minister of Transport and Aviation

Dr Sylvia Blyden Minister of Social Welfare, Gender and Children's Affairs

Ms. Elizabeth Mans Minister of Fisheries, and Marine Resources

Dr Mathew Teambo Minister of Labour And Social Security

Prof. Patrick Monty Jones Minister of Agriculture, Food Security, and Forestry

Mr Sidi Yahya Tunis Minister of Tourism and Culture

Ms. Diana Konomanyi Minister of Lands, Country Planning and the Environment

Mr Ahmed Khanou Minister of Sports

Major (Rtd) Palo Conteh Minister of Internal Affairs

Mr Bai Mamoud Bangura Minister of Youth Affairs

Dr Abu Bakarr Fofanah Minister of Health and Sanitation

Mr Momodu Maligie Minister of Water Resources

With millions of pounds now pledged by various governments including China and the UK, the concern of many ( despite their grief) is... what will happen to that money?
With the millions pledged to fight Ebola unaccounted for, do the critics have a point?
Was this disaster avoidable?

Sorry, not this time Mr President


What do Grace Mugabe and Naomi Campbell have in common?

Well...a fiery temper it would seem

The government of Zimbabwe requested diplomatic immunity for Grace, whilst the South African government put airports on red alert [click]

Where is she now?
who knows
Gotta love her


Did you know Nigerian state officials ( senators) are some of the the highest paid in the world? [click]

I can see you all adjusting your CV's as I type


Only reggae can solve this

We forget we are all god

Have a lovely weekend Xx

Friday Night Love

The week has simply flown by. A lovely busy day but i'm glad its Friday as the of/on hot/cold weather has me battling the start of a cold.

However, feeling a bit rough...I came home to a lovely surprise

What this?
A box with my name on it?

I prolonged my joy by washing up first.. no.. actually my joy wasn't prolonged at all, and I washed up with an energy I didn't have even know I had..
I just wanted to open my box

Put a smile on my face as I quickly picked a favourite among them..

Sweet things are even sweeter when you least expect them

Awwww... I love them..


Something for the weekend..

The evolution of the species

" ...I can honestly say I don't ever remember a time of the female buttocks being as big as so many are now.... were they in hiding??.."

Ok, they may look nice.... but can they climb a tree?....
A tree???

Who says that :)

Cool track




Have a nice weekend

Phyno ft Wande Coal – Zamo Zamo

Weekend Tings. Election Fever, Bolt V Gatlin plus Music from Praiz & Sarkodie:

Will it really take a coalition of 7-8 political parities to topple Robert Mugabe and Zanu PF?
If so.. lol!!

Unity is strength, but whilst a similar coalition worked in The Gambia headed by the handsome Adama Barrow....


"Well... thank you Dawna..."

"You're most welcome my President".. heehee

...Morgan Tsvangirai in my opinion, lacks the charm of Barrow, neither does he appear to have fully won the trust of enough people across the country (or diaspora)


I guess we shall see but it would be a bitter win should they succeed ( which I can't see them doing)
Rather than strength it really suggests an indication of the weakness of any opposition against Zanu
Apparently President Mugabe called them a bunch of Zeros.
Funny man

A fresh up-and- coming party will stand a better chance but we will see.

So... here are a few elections worth looking out for...

Zimbabwe - Between July Aug 2018
Rwanda Paul Kagame - re-elected August (3rd term)
Sierra Leone - March 2018
Nigeria - February 2019
Liberia - Oct 2017
Congo (can't afford it this year.. apparently. Kabila seeking 3rd term)
Kenya - Aug (8th) 2017

More often than not, stability across Africa is hinged on elections, the build up and subsequent results.
A free fair and transparent election is always sort but equally always questioned.
Yes, elections are serious business across Africa.


Justin Gatlin, after so many failed attempts, finally beat Usain Bolt in the mens 100m.
Despite some observers and fans feeling disgruntled, Gatlin is a reminder to us all that if you want something badly enough.. don't give up.

Athletics is an emotional affair.

I watched the Bolt documentary today and it was indeed very moving.

Well done Justin Gatlin
.. and the great sportsman that is Bolt.
The crowd may have booed, but Bolt took it very well, and Gatlin was right to bow down and show him that love
Nice gesture


We finally have a video to accompany this beautiful song
Nice x
