Liberia: Stunna "For Life" Video Graded

Stunna just dropped the visual for his hit song "For Life", starring the queen of airwaves, DJ Master Queen.
The creative concept of the video is romantic. The casting was perfect, no better individual to play that role, Master Queen played a very realistic and convincing role. You can see that the scripted was well-written, the concept of the video is clear, the imagery is concise and action very easily understood. Good picture quality, lighting and exposure are perfect, but the color balance, I'm not too impressed with. Good shot composition and staging. High quality audio with clean, clear lyrics and music throughout the video. I definitely love the dialect lines thrown in it. From a scale of 1 to 10, I give this video a 9.5.  Check it out and let me know what you think.

Liberia police charge son of ex-leader in banknote scandal

MONROVIA, Liberia (AP) - Liberian police on Monday formally charged the 61-year-old son of the country's former president, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, in connection with the unlawful overprinting of local currency worth millions of U.S. dollars. Separately, police also opened an investigation into the death of a central bank official.
According to the charge sheet shared with The Associated Press by police, Charles Sirleaf and others, including former Central Bank governor Milton Weeks, face a multitude of charges, including economic sabotage, the misuse of public money and criminal conspiracy.
The men, arrested Thursday, have been taken to Monrovia Central Prison pending their court appearance.
Lawyers for the accused did not publicly comment about the charges.
Their arrests came after a government report and a separate U.S.-commissioned report pointed to the mishandling of billions of Liberian dollars in local banknotes.
According to the U.S.-backed report, Liberia's central bank…

Liberia: Kobazzie "Bounce" Remix Davido Gets Mixed Reviews

Kobazzie just dropped the most anticipated remix to Bounce, featuring Davido, and the reviews from fans are 50/50 thumbs up and downs down. Unlike most Liberian songs when featuring an international artist, Davido did not outshined Kobazzie on the remix. His verse was shorter like it should be, a little weaker like it should be, giving Kobazzie all of the shine. I'm sure Davido could have gone harder, and stronger on his verse, but I believe that he was more interested in supporting Kobazzie than to out do him on his own track. That is a boss move, a superstar move and role model move. I am all for it. Both versions of the song are amazing. The original is better to some than others, the remix is better to some than others, and for some, including myself, the qualities are the same, and most importantly, Davido did not outshine Kobazzie. That is gracefully and I dig that. Check out the song and let us know what you think.
