Akon Supplies Electricity to 600 Million Africans

While everyone is speaking about Bruce\Caitlyn Jenner’s new appearance on Vanity Fair, some real news is actually happening. Akon, Mr Konvict himself, and founder of Lady Gaga has just launched Solar Academy to provide electricity to Africa. 

I once got deported back to Nigeria where electricity only lasts a couple of hours a day. Try watching your favorite TV show and while at the climax, BOOM, the TV turns off. Always had to have lanterns and candles ready as soon as the power goes off. Not an easy lifestyle to love. Here in the United States, we take electricity for granted. Akon is bringing so much good to Africa and it’s about to make a HUGE difference!!  http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/7360372

Album I Recommend….

YBNL’s very own Olamide aka Baddooo, has just dropped his album #StreetOT , Nov 14th. You have to give the album a listen as he raps in Yoruba, English and some Pigeon (street slang talk).

I chose to listen to the album because I love the way he creates music with his distinctive ways. Also, his singles were hot and on point. Trust me, when you hear “Story for the gods,” and “Goons Mi,” you’ll see how musically talented this man is.
I even took to Twitter to mention him that my favorite new turn up song was “Up in the Club.” – You have to know I was super excited that my favorite Nigerian artist mentioned me back on Twitter.

Sooo excited I snap chatted it too ( don’t judge me) lol . Personally, there were some songs I liked a lot and some I had to just skip.
I totally recommend this album. You just have to unleash your raz side, enjoy the street life tone and most importantly have your old school grandparent by your side to translate Olamide’s strong Yoruba.

Album is in stores now!

Today I purchased the Beyoncé surprise album from iTunes. It was an easy download, took a couple of minutes. The anticipation was killing me especially to hear Blue Ivy’s cute little voice on a record.

As I lay in my room with the lights dimmed and my Beats headphones to my ears & twirling my hair, I allowed myself to get lost into the voice of Beyoncé, taking me on a journey through the album. I’ve enjoyed a lot of the songs from the album, such as : Mine feat Drake, Drunk in Love feat Hubby Jay Z , Superpower feat Frank Ocean etc

The videos are so well planned out and it’s safe to say Baddie Bey still got it!!! Her body, the voice, the moves, she remains amazing!! The “Drunk in Love” video was such a simple concept and it worked for me!!! The “Yoncé” video was so fly and mad dope to me with the beautiful Victoria Secret model, Jourdan Dunn strutting her derrière. I was WOW’d to see Kelly Rowland & Michelle Williams in the “Superpower” video with a reunion feel, kinda reminded me of the “Loose My Breath” video. * starts singing- Can you keep up, baby boy make me loose my breath* & my oh my Pharrell Williams just never ages!!! Don’t get me started on the “Rocket” video, a nice little wet t-shirt contest to keep the fellas gawking at their screens, rewinding and replaying.

Finally, I’m so glad that she finally made an official video for “Grown woman” incorporating African beats and dialects, just as she performed the song in Africa rocking that Ankara outfit.

Anyways, I really recommend people to take a listen to this album, fore Queen Bey has done it again flawlessly!!!
