I’ve recently delved back into my 90’s RnB music collection and pulled out classics from artists such as Aaliyah, Ashanti and Brandy to name but a few. There’s just something about music from that era that leaves you with that sense of nostalgia. However, I was able to put those tracks away for a time over the weekend after being sent the beautiful track ‘Mine’ by UK based songstress Cheryll Music.
Could ‘Pussy Powah’ by Afro-Latina recording artist and poet Nitty Scott be the female empowerment track of the year? I think the answer is a massive YES! I pressed play on this track and was subsequently blown away by the powerful visuals and impact filled message. Women too often are made to feel embarrassed for embracing their sexuality, Nitty Scott shouts from the roof tops that being a woman and a woman of colour is powerful and our biggest strength is our sexual indentity. In society, the image of sexual black woman has been scorned and looked at as animalistic but the message is firm in ‘Pussy Powah’, now is the time that black women freely express themselves and exude their right to feel sexually liberated.
#InspireLSEntertainment | Shaggy Is Star of the Show at Saturday’s Sun-drenched Strawberries & Creem Festival
On Saturday, Strawberries & Creem Festival continued its rapid expansion as it grew to 8,000 attendees on Saturday 17th June in only its fourth year. The lineup showcased the cream of UK musical talent accompanied by some nostalgic, throwback performances. Standout performers included UK hotshot J Hus, Godfather of Grime Wiley and a rare UK performance from the reggae legend Shaggy.
Anne-Marie is one of the pre-legends of the scene. She’s a local girl from Essex who went to drama school and loved to perform Motown classics. Her backing singer is her best friend and her sister; which makes for a very interesting and engaging performance; as both women know exactly what they’re aiming to do and how they’re going to perform it.
Since wowing the public with her incredible vocals as a finalist on X Factor 2015, 20 year old singer- songwriter Kiera Weathers has really come into her own.
