I have to write this the real chichipoly way, because it is too juicy to be standard. So, apparently, Foreign Ward reached out to Flex camp, offering to be a ghost writer for Flex. That didn't sit well with Foreign Ward old friend, DJ Lib, who is now associated with Flex camp. DJ Lib posted this indirect message on his Facebook page for Foreign Ward: If you say you don't need no one to be successful and your music is this & that, why you writing long message trying to be apart of what we got going? # moneymakingafricans the family The indirect shots started flying back and forth, after that. Things started to get really mess. You know how we are, we love messy situations. We will definitely monitor this beef and see what the outcome is going to be. According to our sources, Flex team has hired a writer and it is not Foreign Ward.
Tiger Woods arrested According to multiple reports, champion golfer Tiger Woods was arrested Monday for an alleged DUI. The New York Post reports that Woods was booked at the Palm Springs County Jail around 3 a.m. and released at 11 a.m. He has been charged with driving under the influence, but reports have not yet said whether police claim he was under the influence of alcohol or drugs. In his mug shot, Woods is unshaven with messy hair and vacant eyes; he looks absolutely haggard. He's been on a hiatus from his golfing career due to years worth of recurring back problems. He recently had his fourth surgery since 2014, and he's sitting out this year's PGA season. In the last two years, he's only made three starts, and has not played professionally since he pulled out of the Dubai Desert Classic in February after the opening round. Woods just posted to his blog last week, detailing the fusion surgery he had recently, and saying he plans to

Last Monday, the country’s minister of information and culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, gave a speech at the opening of the 7th African Digital TV Development Meeting in Beijing, China in which he touted Nigeria’s commitment to growing its animation sector. (The image at the top of this post is from one of Nigeria’s most successful animation studios, EVCL, which produces Bino and Fino . ) In his talk, Mohammed explained that “the advent of a fast-growing ‘digital age’ in Nigeria, the growing popularity of the internet, and the establishment of various media-distribution platforms have given rise to an increasing demand for content and services like animation and digital artistry.” He said that the Nigerian govern

DenG According to an article written by the Liberian Observer, DenG songs are falling off the charts faster than before. "From ‘Make Dem Talk’ to ‘Some Done Some Na Done,’ it now appears that the top notch artist has lost his lyrical prowess. The two singles’ ‘hot lifespan’ didn’t go past a month after their release dates, maybe owing to the fact that they have a similar message to his first hit single ‘They Vex,’ without being as catchy. Both songs fell short of tapping into his fans’ expectations, and the lyrics appear to lack that power that could speak directly to the soul." Reading the comment session of the article, most of his fans agreed with the writer. One actually wrote, " The writer was right... Deng didn't do well in the song he ft sarkodie... He has to work on his lyrics and style I have noticed he is trying to change his original sound to something different...." ZB QuoiQuoi This was DenG respond to the author of the a
Miss Liberia, Wokie Dolo Wokie Dolo has concluded her week long tour in Uganda, and is expected to arrive in Accra, Ghana today, to meet with her Ghanaian counterpart.

They would bring us nothing but cuteness)
One of chef Yarngo presentation An article on chef Yarngo was posted few days ago of the internet, titled " Liberian Chef Rethinks His Country’s Cuisine. " Chef Chauncy Yarngo is a Liberian narrative. His culinary skills have taken him far and beyond. He's creative, hardworking and skillful. As I read through the article, something caught my attention. “I cannot be a chef and live here and make my country’s food exactly like they do back home,” says Yarngo about his food. “I’m going to leave the Liberian food to the chef in Liberia.” One of the greatest impact we face from the war, as Liberians, is the infusion of many different cultures within our society. From our music to fashion, almost everything within our culture havE been water down, because of our experiences from exile. One thing that remains consistent is the Liberian cuisine. Are we going to water that down too? I see Chef Yarngo creativity, I understands it and appreciate it

JB Soulfresh Wise Words from JB of Soulfresh. The artist posted these words early this morning on his Facebook page: I see too many drama in our slow motion music industry these days on social media.. The chain of unity is breaking slowly especially between promoters, bloggers, djs, managers, sponsors and the artists... Every year all we hear is Liberian music is getting there.. Yeah no doubt, the music is better now, the fans are responding... But from a business stand point, we are going no where folks.. It's time to make the money and no excuse about that... But how can we make this money especially the artists? It is by beefing with our promoters, bloggers, djs, managers or sponsors? For me NO! My fellow artists, I know most of us have worked tirelessly, so we can't wait to succeed. Yes, I feel the same too but I believed we can't do it on our own. We need these guys.. So if we have problems, there are ways to state these burning issues instead o

It will annoy you no more and no less than any other lazy verse. Flex has potential, but he need some creativity on his team. Check out the song below.

Liberian music producer Stone Luckshine Stone Luckshine set Facebook ablaze when he posted these words on his page. "Hmmmmm why Some liberian managers/sponsors always think they are helping or running charity homes and not looking at the business part of the industry? They ride all the big cars, spent all the money on girls, use their artists to get popular, want to be on every party, brand themselves more than their artists, and when their artists noticed they are only being used by these socalled managers and sponsors and decide to leave because their time around these labels are only about party all day and night, but at the end they get nothing.

We don't know techno manager but we see his work, we don't know DenG manager but we see his work. We know QB
