Africa Film Award-winning superstar May7ven triumphantly returns with inspirational R&B/Afrobeats-infused summer hit entitled “Better Dayz” which uncompromisingly serves as the multi-talented Afrobeats Queen’s most lyrically honest creative outing and personal emancipation declaration in officially finding closure with the former demons in her life and bravely placing all of the endless drama, deep negativity and painful heartache behind her once and for all. The melodically upbeat “Better Dayz” authentically remains true to May7ven‘s precisely sublime artistry and is a bona fide Afrobeats anthem for female empowerment in rising like a phoenix from the ashes and bravely fighting against all odds, which conversely and spectacularly results in May7ven sounding vastly optimistic and bittersweet simultaneously.
What a Sunday! The Sun was shining in London Town; a rarity with the weather we’ve been seeing of late. RnB and Hip Hop came out in fine form to the roof top for Supa Dupa Fly at The Queen of Hoxton, Shoreditch with none other than the legendary Tim Westwood throwing down a mad mash of musical genres from RnB, Hip-Hop to Bashment; to that Trinidad bounce carnival sound they call Soca.
Proving why he is a superstar and world renowned DJ, Westwood; without a shadow of a doubt pleased and teased the crowd. For 3 continuous hours, he simply shut down the place and caused complete and utter havoc.
I love Hip-Hop, always have and always will. However, I have to say that today’s music artists who perform this genre just don’t give me the ‘chill down my spine’ that 90’s Hip-Hop artists did. I struggle to resonate with them about their struggle because aside from perhaps having to live in an impoverished area or maybe going to a rough school, I don’t often think the ‘struggles’ that these rappers go through are that ‘struggles’ so I disconnect and not listen.
