New Liberian music video alert: 2C - Make It

 From his new album, Bridgin Da Gap, 2C just dropped a new one "Make It".  Check out the video below and our exclusive interview with this amazing artist.  

1.     What is the name of your album and what inspired you to name it?
Bridgin' Da Gap is the name. I mean the name speaks for itself. What inspired me was coming in the game at a very young age, and I've been doing my homework trying figuring out a way that Liberia could be heard on the international stage and be loved by everyone no matter the race or culture. I feel like everyone in the industry is well-known and respected except Liberians. This Bridgin' Da Gap album will change that! There's a track on this album for everyone which will get the people involve and let them know that we can do the same thing they're doing but even better.

2.     Why is Make It the first song you released?
I come from Liberia and like I said we are not respected in this game so my first single is "Make It" because I'm letting them know that we’re gonna make it no matter what! Nothing's stopping us. If we can make it through fourteen years of civil war and struggles, what else can we not make it through? From where I started to where I'm at now, I'm definitely making it. The sky is the limit. God's got me!

3.     How long did it take for you to record the album?
I told my manager sometime last year around September that of all the singles we've been releasing since we came in the game from 2004 till now and it was time to give the fans a finished product with all new songs. So let say 9 months strong!

4.     Who did you work with on the album?
Super producer Lasanna "Ace" Harris (Liberian American) and Citrus (Ruff n Smooth in house producer). Also my day 1 guy Charles Dunbar and my cousin Pryce who came along later and joined the team.

5.     Does the whole album fit into a particular musical genre, or does it borrow from multiple forms?
I would say multiple forms because we have tracks on there for everyone to enjoy from afrobeat to pop, hip-hop, and even hipco. If I could even do a Chinese song, I wouldn't mind adding it. Lol

6.     Were there particular songs, or even lines, which stick in your mind because of their lyrics? 
Of course! Mostly all the songs I do always have a meaning. I will say the entire album. Some of my favorite songs are True Love, We All, Mama, and Mr. Mechanic. Just wait and pick up the album to see what I'm talking about. :)

7.     What’s your view on the Liberian Music Industry currently? 
Honestly I'm proud to where we have come from where we started. It's few artists along with myself that I can say we are here already and ready for the international challenge. What we have to know is that you can’t just jump up one day and say I’m an artist while making play play music and tag it "Liberian Music". We have to perfect our craft seriously in order to be taken serious and compete with our international opponents. 

8.     What keeps you going?
Believing in myself knowing that you never know how close you are so why give up? There is a photo online that I came across one day where a guy was underground digging for diamonds and just one more dig was gonna change his life forever but instead he got tired and quit while another guy who just started digging but was so energetic and passionate about succeeding he kept going. He wasn't stopping because he wanted success. Every time, I see that photo I'm inspired. I want to be able to make a living out of this, retire my mom and dad and show the nonbelievers that whatever you put your mind to in life you can do it as long you're focus, believe in God and work for it.
We Gonna Make It!!

'He kicked me in the stomach, I peed on myself. He body-slammed me to the floor twice and told me he would kill me, no one will find my body.: In her journey to recovery, domestic violence survivor Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman tells it all

The tragic story of Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman, like that of Agnes Yarlee and Diane Hart before her, has brought the issue of domestic abuse out of the dark unspoken place it thrives and into the open.
It's horrendous that it takes the death of women, or an attempt to kill women, to get a serious debate  on the issue of domestic abuse. Discussing domestic violence in our society is a real taboo and most men within the Liberian society, don't even find the topic worth their time, as compared to discussing sports, politics and corruption. 
But these women mention above are just the tip of the iceberg.

Defying the odds, Mrs. Dennis-Freeman refuses to keep her mouth shut and go with the flow of the Liberian society.  She courageously sat in a wheel chair up to 1:30am, sharing her story with C Liberia Clearly.  In her own words, she walked us through the day that led to her horrific story.

Liberian-American Wilmot Collins unseats Mayor Smith - Becomes 1st Black Mayor In Montana

Wilmot Collins will be Helena’s new mayor, unseating incumbent Jim Smith in a close race Tuesday. 
Collins, 54, will be the city's first new mayor in 16 years after running a long campaign based in progressive principles.
“The people of Helena have spoken, and I am honored to be able to serve them,” Collins said as the night drew to a close. “I intend to work with commissioners, work for the people of Helena and find what is best for this city.”Collins also sought to praise Smith for his work over the past decade and a half.
“I commend Mayor Smith. He’s done a great job for the city, and I hope to work with him in the future," Collins said. 
At the La Pa Grill on 6th Avenue in downtown Helena, Collins and other members of the self-described “progressive ticket” watched and waited for the results of the 2017 election.
The feeling was festive as Collins received a call from U.S. Sen. Jon Tester congratulating Collins on his victory. Victory cigars were passed around the room at the …
