More on Azekel

So i told y'all ill be back with some more info to feed you about 'Azekel' - the feedback from the track so far has been great, glad you like it.

Azekel‘s "I BE ON MY NEW ISH BABY..." is a catchy line that’s been raking up over a thousand hits on Youtube, Myspace, and Soundcloud over the past days, courtesy of singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist producer Azekel.

 Stomping into the underground arena with his vivid debut promo single New-Ish, the East London artist is making it his duty to ensure you remember his name. “It’s about going out of this world to receive a new sound,” He says. “It’ll never be the same again.” 

With a selection of soul, hip-hop, dub, as well as pop and rock influences, the 21-year-old has mastered the art of fusing genres into songs like New-Ish and returning with a sound quite extraordinary.The self-taught multi-instumentalist is turning heads with his experimental musicianship as he pushes the boundaries of urban pop music. “I want to inspire creativity and capture hearts and minds.” While New-Ish leaves listeners craving for more, it also sets in motion the lead up to his long-awaited EP entitled BassFashionFaithPassion due for release Autumn 2011.

With many musical surprises in store for the UK music scene, eyes and ears stay glued at an artist who’s passion fuels his creativity, igniting his incredible talent.For press, bookings and general enquiries  please contact: thunderlightning@live.co.uk

If we cant be lovers we cant be friends??

We've all been there. Whether we are the dumpee or the dumper, we have all experienced the end of a relationship. The uncomfortable "It's not you it's me" conversation. The tears and pleas to stay together. It often times is quite messy. How do you handle the aftermath of a break up? Does it depend on how messy the break up is?

For some, it doesn't matter how amicable the break up is, after they are done, they are done.

I asked one of my girls this question and she had this to say.... ' I don't want any phone calls or emails or any of that. Forget you even know my name when we break up. Especially if you broke up with me. I don't want to hear about your new woman and how great she is and how you are planning on marrying her. Yeah, that doesn't hurt much.'

If I was the dumpee I still don't want to be friends with the guy because inevitably he will always think he can inch his way back in. Always. Uuuhhh, no. I don't want to be your friend.

So, what's your take on ending a relationship? Can you be friends or no? do you agree with my girl?

Singer Lily Allen has recently expressed her disgust at a recent tweet by US rapper Kanye West.
The star, who last year suffered her second late miscarriage, last week said Kanye's ponderings on the social networking website are wrong on 'so many levels'.
Kanye, 33, wrote: 'an abortion can cost a ballin' n**** up to 50gs maybe a 100.
'Gold diggin' b****** be getting pregnant on purpose. #STRAPUP my n*****!'

But 25-year-old Lily was horrified by his comments.
She tweeted to West in reply: 'Never has a tweet put me in such a bad mood.
'This is wrong on so many levels.'

Abortion is a very controversial subject. On the one hand, some use it as birth control who could care less about their lifestyle or the cries of a foetus upon a forced birth who is then killed using instruments by an abortionist. Then there are early abortions when someone is assaulted and finds they're pregnant. These are things which society has differing opinions, yet, "back-street" doctors, national clinics, perform abortions on an almost daily basis somewhere in society
Kanye has got a point about "strapping up." Men should use condoms if they don't want a woman to get pregnant. If they don't care about using condoms they can't complain if a woman chooses to keep the baby. It is indeed sad that lily lost 2 babies, but I think that in her sensitive state she fails to see that Mr West’s controversial remark is actually a good message: Wear a condom, then one won’t need an abortion in the first place! If she really wants to attack someone she should be attacking the women who have these excessive and expensive abortions (it really is a problem) as Mr West is doing! (Perhaps not so crassly though.
I don’t see any relation between what had happened to Lily Allen and what Kanye said... Kanye is encouraging other "ballin' N- " to wear a condom so that girls don’t get pregnant purposefully to take them for all their money. He’s encouraging safe sex etc. etc. I think she’s misunderstood
Just to give this some perspective... Lilly has actively chosen to follow Kanye on twitter and therefore presumably is interested in want he has to say. Kanye is CLEARLY NOT saying he is pro-miscarriage within a loving relationship is he, he's just keeping it real with a good helping of tongue in cheek.
I aint no gold digger but I sure know plenty of the type. I can see where he is coming from. Lily is still hurting which is also understandable.

Your Beautiful the way you are

A recent story about a university student, 20, who flew to Philadelphia, US, for silicone jabs to increase the curve of her buttocks.
Instead of a successful op Claudia, of Hackney, East London, suffered chest pains after the injections and died in hospital. Judging by her photo she was already a very beautiful young lady. What a really sad world where young girls are literally putting they're life at risk by opting for cheap unregulated plastic surgery and all in the name of vanity!
Cosmetic surgery is clearly potentially dangerous. But people don't seem to treat it with the same caution and fear that they would another surgical procedure. People seem to be less willing to see the danger of having a tummy tuck compared to that of a stomach operation they need medically.
When things go wrong someone can end up disfigured or even dead, a facelift can lead to your eyes or mouth not opening and closing properly. Breast implants can result in oddly shaped breasts. And post-surgical infection is a risk, as is severe psychiatric injury.
What a horrible thing. Girls and women, you are beautiful as you are! Don't cave to pressures by others to look a certain way. It'll ruin your life! What a terrible price to pay for wanting to look good. This real tragedy and a needless death that should never have happened and I truly hope others will learn a stark warning from this so that no more lives are needlessly lost!
For the religious and spiritual among us, body image may instantly improve with the simple reminder that God gave you the body you have for a reason. He didn't make you to look like Beyonce because you aren't Beyonce. He wants you to be healthy enough to do your life's work. To live and work at an optimum level. So, accept His creation, and nurture it.
Condolences to her family

mini rant cont.....

Cont post about celebs and parents.....
for example Rihannas new S&M video alot of people are insulting and tweeting Rihanna, concenred parents where ranting allover the internet saying shes meant to be a role model bla bla bla, now i dnt condone her new video because it is extremly sexual BUT if thats what shes gonna do to get money then so be it, i mean your there complainning about Rihanna whilst my girl is living her life making millions. theres so many things we do as human beings as parents ans siblibgs relatives that are being done and said infront of these kids that is 100 times worse than rhianna and all these celebritys sexual video.

Take the log out of your eye before removing the speck from your neighbours eye kinda thing, for how long are celebrities going to be blamed for living their life.
peep the video below....

p.s the video has now been banned in 11 countries, MTV are considering re-editing it for daytime play and YouTube are making sure users confirm they're over 18 before watching it.

Parents or Celebs?!?!

What do celebrities mean to kids?

Ok, I understand teenagers may look to them for fashion etc. But, I've come across parents who seem to blame celebrities for being 'bad role models', if their children start smoking/drinking or even being rude. But, since when were celebrities meant to set standards for the way children act? Surely the biggest role models in a child's life, up to a certain age, is it's parents? That's just my opinion, though. I would like to hear what others think, if anything?
Fair enough celebrities are in the spotlight, but they are humans just like me and you and shouldnt be pressured into being what they are not. 
  • By the time our kids are in middle school, they start to look to their peers for a sense of what’s socially acceptable or desirable.
  • Kids choose public personas as role models, but there are no guarantees that a star will stick to a lifestyle that kids can look up to -- or that parents will approve of
  • Kids have always looked to celebrities as role models. Now that kids are immersed in the 24/7 media world at younger and younger ages, these role models play an even bigger role. Everywhere kids turn, they see images and hear reports about their idols. And now that social sites like Twitter,Facebook, and YouTube allow celebrities a no-holds-barred way to communicate directly with their fans. Kids are often left alone to make sense of it all -- or they turn to their peers to figure out what’s happening. The results aren’t pretty
Talk to me guys....
