People are often trusted because they show great business acumen, professionalism, a high level of skill and/or talent for something they do.
The Fugees’ probably weren’t aware that the producer for their award-winning video “Killing Me Softly”, Aswad Ayinde, was a diabolical pedophile that was raping his daughters and fathering their children. When the EUR reported the story in 2010, he had 27 charges against him for the multiple rapes of his daughters from 1981 to 2002. The nightmare of this freak will never ever leave his daughters, but the thought that they never have to seem him again might help. He was sentenced to another 50 years in prison, according to the Daily Mail. (more…)

The list of entertainers we mentioned on Tuesday seem to have some artists confused and “uncomfortable.”
Well-respected, longtime White House correspondent April Ryan, posted from her site a list of entertainers that had allegedly joined forces with Stevie Wonder to get the Florida boycott rolling more seriously, but now there’s trouble with the information from Ryan’s camp and the Huffington Post received this statement from the seasoned journalist.

George Zimmerman is not the only criminal in Florida. The state’s government is having their feet held to the fire for the way they’ve chosen to translate the Stand Your Ground law into the acquittal of Zimmerman and false imprisonment of Marissa Alexander.
The EURweb reported that Mary Mary have joined with Stevie Wonder to boycott Florida until they abolish the law. And the call to action has been heard and more of music’s heavyweights are answering the call and cancelling their concerts and standing with the socially conscious, legendary balladeer, according to veteran White House correspondent April D. Ryan of the White House Report. (more…)

During Apartheid in South Africa, African Americans and others were a part of a campaign to divest from the country. Government sanctions were not the only U.S. entity to pull out of a relationship with South Africa, many people, especially African Americans, and students from all types of colleges, via various organizations, stopped supporting those companies with South African interests.
Stevie Wonder has been a crusader for justice for many years for every humanitarian and civil rights effort imaginable. He was a central figure in supporting the holiday in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King on his birthday by creating one of the most popular songs in history. But now his focus is on the Trayvon Martin murder and acquittal of George Zimmerman. He now vows that we won’t have to worry about spending another dollar on one of his shows in Florida because there won’t be any. (more…)

Everyone knows that Kanye West is a perfectionist. It’s one of the first things we hear about him, and that’s only second to his ego.
So one can only imagine how furious he is with the leak of the video for his new single “Black Skinhead”. The video is a bit gothic and portrays him as something of a monster caught in a room voluntarily. According to the Daily Mail, he was upset at the person who leaked it and tweeted his tirade once he was tipped off. (more…)

All of us have, at one time or another, seen a celebrity and had a hater’s moment saying, “Wow! If I had all that money, I’d look like that too.” Because we believe that they can afford dietitians, chefs, trainers, beauty treatments, etc., to keep their looks in check. But what if they didn’t?
Let’s say Jay and Beyonce’, Kanye and Kim, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, all lived down the street from you and brought home a paycheck that resembled yours. What would they look like then? Well, artist Danny Evans thought he would take a stab at the “what if.” (more…)

Father’s day is upon us and we are ready to celebrate all of the fathers hanging in there with their children and providing the guidance and support needed to produce a dream team of young men and women.
Fathers tend to get the short end of the stick on their day when you compare it to the celebration of Mother’s Day. But African American fathers really get a bad rap and are pushed to the bottom of the fatherhood totem pole throughout the year and on their day. But we want to remind our little people that their fathers are equally important to their development as their mothers…and what better way to remind them than with a history lesson. (more…)

We’ve been celebrating Black Music Month with exceptional artists from all America and overseas, but nothing we’ve seen has prepared us for the talent of the man you are about to experience.
Travis Pratt is a resident of Tifton, Georgia and they should be proud. He performed for the judges on the NBC show America’s Got Talent and they were visibly blown away…as were we. The man is there to sing, but what comes out of his mouth was the most unexpected treat we’re sure they had never heard before. (more…)
