Keepin ya in the loop!
Sooo my lurrvvverlies...I've been so busy I don't even know what day it is right now. But busy is a great thing and I feel blessed that I have that privilege.
I did few more shows since the gig at mau mau's and I will try and get my hands on some footage to put up in the next post.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to all of you who watched my "kisses in the morning" promo video
It's been up for 3 weeks now and has had over 3000 views which is a great achievement for me. So at least I know people are getting to hear my music! Please keep posting and spreading the word!
I have also been very fortunate to have had my video and song reviewed by many blogs, sites, magazines etc.
My most recent one was Soultrain.com in an article by Terry Bello (founder of the International Soul Music Summit)
Please check it out www.soultrain.com
If you've been following my blog for a while, you will remember the name Emmy Collins.
He's a friend of mine who happens to be a Fashion Designer. I have had the pleasure of wearing his clothes and working alongside him on shoots and will continue to support him as I believe his style is very unique and innovative.

An Emmy Collin's Dress
Born Nigerian and growing up during Fela’s (Kuti) prime, he sneaked out on many a night to watch the Afro beat king play at his “Afrika Shrine” club influenced Emmy so much that from his teens together with his neighbourhood friends, he developed clothing styles unique to his time and brought to life by a local machinist friend. Emmy Collins’ work today is not a copy of Fela’s sartorial sense. Instead he has honed his creative skills while borrowing from some of his personal childhood creations and allowing memories of his music icon to inspire his original designs today. These influences have never been more evident than in his Spring/Summer 2011 collection recently unveiled at the Pitti Immagine Uomo 78 men’s apparel fashion show in Florence, Italy.
The Emmy Collins London collection can be viewed at his eponymous showroom opening 25th August at:
87 Great Eastern Street, London EC2A 3HY, TEL:02034870734, Email firstname.lastname@example.org
Feel free to come down and have a sneaky peak through his collection between 11am and 8pm.
I look forward to seeing you all there.
I will also let you know when the Grand Opening Launch Party is taking place, that will be an event and a half!!!
Okay me dearies. I need to get some rest. I have a very important recording session tomorrow.
Also got much more to tell you but that will have to wait for another day...
