New & Improved: I Rep Lib Broaden Its Platform

                                                                    By Berenice Mulubah

"I’m a family man, I have a wonder wife, job and I have a huge passion for Liberian entertainment." Lincoln TheLegend Ward/CEO Irep Lib 

Without a doubt, I rep Lib is a strong supporter of Liberian entertainment growing industry. It is a platform that allows anyone to find information about Liberian entertainers. 
Designed and developed by I Rep Lib CEO, TheLegend talks about his vision for I Rep Lib, starting from its genesis, "I’ve always been fascinated with computers. My love for computer drew me to the idea of building a platform for Liberians to mingle.  I was inspired by a website called Black Planet, something like facebook, but at the time, I wasn't too inclined. I came up with a site, The Liberian Umbrella. Over time, the site started to grow.  I also have a passion for music.  I decided to combined my two passions, music and computers and came up with an upgrade, Lib Africa, a platform for Liberians to mingle and listen to music. I didn't have a lot of music at the time. There wasn't a lot of Liberian musicians on the scene.  A friend of mine, Jerome, went to Liberia and brought a lot of Liberian music that I uploaded to the site.  Jodi was the first Liberian musician who contacted with his song, then Black Diamond, Georgee B, Sundaydar Dearboy and the rest started coming around.  Over the years, Liberia Africa audience grew.  To foster the growth of the site, I renamed it 'I Rep Lib'. The name was changed in 2007."

What should we expect from the upgraded site: A place to find all things Liberian entertainment, not just limited to music and movies. I'm trying to make I rep Lib a source where people can find information on all of Liberian entertainment, that’s why I am working on a new site, I’m going to focus on fashion, entertainment news, literature and more. I’m reaching out to lot of people to post their work.  I’m getting bloggers in Liberia to provide entertainment news.  My main goal is to provide a platform that outsider can find Liberian entertainment.  And it is working so far, I’ve been getting some emails from outsiders looking for Liberian to interview. That's the vision, one-stop-shop Liberian entertainment platform.


How can the entertainers make this process easier for you: I need more people to work with me. I can post their work and give them credit.  Some are already doing that, there are some artists that I reach out to and I get redirected, but I can’t find their work.  I need them to be cooperative and send their work.  I’m having a difficult time to get them to do that, others are trying to work with me.  Sam Junior reached out to me about Lib record polls.  Lib record polls is a site only for DJs.  You have to register and get approved, to access the music.  Junda Morris, Yeatoe and few others reached out to me. I’m available, even if it is the same thing I’m doing, I’m willing to work with others and I hope people will see that and open up more.  At the end of the day, the common goal is putting Liberian Entertainment industry at the top.

What President Trump and Kim Jong Un Ate

The historic summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un continued midday Tuesday, as the leaders satisfied their appetites while holding negotiations with a contingent of advisers over a working lunch. The lunch, which followed a 45-minute one-on-one meeting between the leaders earlier in the morning and bilateral discussion with senior aides, was held at the Capella Hotel on Singapore’s Sentosa Island. It was far from an intimate affair, with each leader accompanied by a bevy of senior staff, according to the White House. Joining Trump were Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Chief of Staff John Kelly, National Security Advisor John Bolton, U.S. Ambassador to the Philippines Sung Kim, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and Deputy Assistant to the President for Asian Affairs Matthew Pottinger. Kim was accompanied by Kim Yong Chol , the former spy chief and one of North Korea’s chief negotiators, as well as Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho, former

Snapchat Slammed for Domestic Violence Meme Featuring Rihanna and Chris Brown

If Kylie Jenner ‘s stock-plummeting Snapchat rant didn’t make you delete the app, maybe this will. Over the weekend, Snapchat found itself in hot water after a now-deleted domestic violence meme featuring Rihanna and Chris Brown went viral. The meme, which was an advertisement for the app “Would You Rather,” asked users whether they would prefer to “slap Rihanna” or “punch Chris Brown.” Almost immediately, screenshots of the ad appeared on Twitter, with many criticizing Snapchat for making light of domestic violence. Is it just me, or is this ad that popped up on my Snapchat extremely tone deaf? Like what were they thinking with this? — Royce Mann (@TheRoyceMann) March 12, 2018 Many considered the ad a mockery of Rihanna’s experience with domestic violence. In 2009, Brown was arrested and charged for physically assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna hours before she was to perform at the Grammy awards. Since the incident, Rihanna has spo
