A Christmas Message: From Aspiring Montserrado Senator, Celia Cuffy Brown

                                                                                


Warm greetings to everyone celebrating Christmas.

During this blessed season, so many beautiful words are woven through our Christmas songs and prayers and traditions. As we celebrate this Christmas, let us remember the women of Liberia.  Women of Liberia go through severe economic hardship. Many educated and professional Liberian women earn less salary than our male colleagues, while rendering the same services or even better.  There are many other issues which affect women in Liberia. These issues can only be addressed in the house of senate by women being a part of the decision making process of Liberia. The reality is, as we aspire to join the house of senate, we may have to lose our current jobs in order to join the race. While this thought is scary, as it will put us and our families through severe economic hardship as we campaign for Senatorial Seats during the 2014 special election, let us not feel discourage. We can only change the socio discourse of Liberia through our participation of the decision making process, by holding unto our convictions without being discourage. Let us do all we can to win many seats in the house of senate. Even if it means losing our current jobs or positions to be part-taker during the 2014 senatorial race for the house, then so be it. The same God, who gave us the courage to step forward, will take us through, to the end of our journey. Remember, Philippians 4:13 “we can do all things through Christ which strengthened us”.  I wish you all merry, merry Christmas and a prosperous new 2014.

Liberia: Stunna In Negotiation For $1Million Deal With Universal Music

The rumor is true.  Speaking with Liberian musician Stunna management this morning, it has being confirmed that Stunna and his team are negotiating with Universal Music to take on the artist.  His team did not confirmed the exact amount, because negotiation is still in process, but it has been said that $1million was the first offer.  The global company's main rival is Temple Music, home to Nigeria's Iyana, who has worked with the Liberian artist in the past. But with Universal reportedly offering more than $1m for a six-year contract, it seem like Stunna is leaning towards Universal Music.
