The Rain & Sun Falls On ALL Of Us!


So, staying positive through the rain, dosen’t mean the absence of it… but it gives you the willpower to get through it.

If only we’d be a little more ‘happy’ or have a little more ‘hope’, our burdens would be a little more easier to carry. Yes, there’s a time for everything but ultimately God doesn’t want us to be sad. We’re here to share love, God’s love. He sent His Son to show us the way, to give us life!! How can we fulfil that with a negative attitude?

We have to let God take us through things & let Him work in us so our mess becomes our message, our negatives become our positives. Difficult things that we have or are yet to endure, prepare us for God’s blessings in our future. We just need to stay true to Him…. & we get a new chance to do this everyday!

#FoodForThought – We are in charge of what attitude we choose to take on each & every day.

The rain and sun falls on ALL of us!

God bless and stay encouraged!

Like A Seed!

We are often taught to always just put on a brave face while our inside is dying. Truth is we NEED to fix what’s on the inside first! As your spirit is what will last, not your outward.
× Penetrate God
× His Word
× The good things
& you’ll find your answers there. There will be times where we have to die to rise up again. But to rise up better and wiser!

‘No seed will grow unless it dies first’. (1 Corinthians15:36)

So yes, we will go through hard phases but it all equips us to rise up better; following God’s purpose for us, allowing the right things in our circle & being an example of God’s great work!….That’s my key for change and a brighter, stronger future.

I spent the evening in Basildon watching the newly released filmed Angels Vs Bullies  with my Fathers and Big Sis.

Myself and sister started the filming process of Angels Vs Bullies 6 years ago and today was the day we finally got to see the finished film. It was an exciting moment.

My sister had a main feature,  acting as ‘Francis’, The main characters best friend. I was also singing in the film, playing Fancis’ friend.

We spent months in the studio recording vocals and filming in schools for the film. It was a great experience! It was great to see all the hard work come to life!

Director and Producer – Chris Turner

The Distortion Of Sound

I really enjoyed watching this documentary. It definitely gave me a reminder on how much effort musicians and artists put into their work, for it to then be diluted by technology and methods of listening… Lol. Boii #TheWorldWeLiveInToday

“The Distortion of Sound is a documentary about the decline of sound quality and how technology has changed the way we listen to music. It will open your ears and inspire you to reach for richer, more soul-stirring musical experiences.”

GRADUATING is a GREAT feeling I must admit. I have been looking forward to this day for a very long time! lol.


Having my family there on such a hot & lovely summers day was a blessing also. To see the smiles on their faces for the whole day was priceless. I remember so clearly when my big sister graduated only 3 years ago.

I managed to achieve a FIRST CLASS Degree incluing the degree prize (BAMBAM Prize), for my effort and top grade. God Is Good!


My uni experience got off on to a hard start and a tough finished! But I did it! I made it! & It was worth it! & I thank God for bringing me through it!

I just want to encourage everybody who is in education, whether you have just started or are about to finish, whether the process is very hard or a walk in the park at this moment in time… Do Not Give UP! Do your Best & God WILL do the rest! Speak good things over your life and they will come to pass once you truly believe they will!

So the world is supposedly my oyster now!? Eeek

Reggae Icons Launch


On the 11th April at St.Philips Hall, Norbury, we firstly assisted the sound company and hired lighting company in setting up the stage equipment. We also used this opportunity to unload any other resources needed on the night. This included the merchandise, cutlery, food, drinks, costumes and more.

We tried our best to keep to the times schedule.  We realised on the night that we gained more helpers to delegate roles too. For example, a friend from the sound company helped on the door with ticket collection or sales and raffle tickets, also our neighbours helped to sell the Reggae Icons merchandise. Security was also employed on the night too, which added professionalism, as well as for any emergencies and to prevent any trouble. The event was scheduled to start at 8pm but was delayed to 8.30pm due to a small starting audience. Events that are promoting Reggae music are often known to start very late into the evening, from looking at other event flyers. I think at times people thought Reggae Icons was a party, as the event description was not promoted on the flyer.

By the time we arrived at the interval, our audience numbers had greatly improved. The audience was very enthusiastic throughout the show, it also helped that we had a well-known radio presenter – Aboo, who interview Shanice & Amarra at Galaxy Radio, hosting the event. The Jamaican food and drinks also sold well on the night and the stalls were in good positions. The stalls were hired out to other merchandisers who sold their materials (Johnny Dollar & CM Cakes), selling black arts and crafts, a cup cake stall, and the Reggae Icons stall, selling t-shirts, programmes and other promotional leaflets.

The overall performance on the night went well and as planned. I felt that the band did a great job by delivering the music well. There was always room for improvement for the band and singers but turned out to be a successful show, enjoyed by many.  From the feedback received from audience members, they were very impressed as nothing like this had been done before. Entering into the second half of the show, everyone became much more comfortable with the atmosphere and their roles, including the audience. The lights and good sound added to the overall presentation to the night too. A theatrical setting is what we tried to achieve through the lights and seating area, and many found the need to get up and dance to the music also, which was a good sign. Despite any losses made that didn’t doubt the success of the Reggae Icons Launch.

He Loves Me EP #1YearAnniversary

Although this event occurred over a year ago, it still seems like it happened 2 months ago. Time goes so quickly, I can’t believe it.

I am so grateful to this project and the help I received during it!

– Feranmi Oguns’ was the producer – alongside his band that played on the ep (The Outlanders)

– Reload Sessions designed all of my branding and CD covers.

– The support acts I had on the Launch night – Lawrence Rowe, Grace  Lamar, J.Appiah & The Outlanders. As well as the huge audience that turned up!

God favoured me & those around me! & ever since the launch and release, it has opened up so many doors in my career. I have met so many wonderful people through it and have taken part in amazing events too. The reviews I received were encouraging and constructive too. Just talking about it make me want to go back and watch footage. Lol.

I can’t wait to complete my next project. Coming your way soon!
