LONDON CITY – Iceberg Slimm
I was recently told about an exciting pageant competition for Miss African Spirit.
This competition sounds so interesting I just had to share.
“The goal of the Miss African Spirit Pageant is to instill a sense of pride and confidence in young women of African heritage by promoting the culture and identity within the wider community and providing a positive image with which to identify”
I think this Pageant sounds like a great event and beaming with culture, I was told by the event organizer that there is no swimwear section to this event and with this in mind I am sure that it is a tasteful pageant promoting awareness as well as raising money for charity.
Miss African spirit is taking entrants of African heritage or birth.
The pageant is not your typical pageant as it focuses on empowering woman hopping to promote future leaders of tomorrow.
Miss African spirit is an event beaming with pride and culture.
Looking at Miss African Spirit Pageant’s pictures from last years event the event was full of beautiful woman, African dress, fabrics, style and colour.
I love the concept of this pageant and I look forward to seeing each section of the event and I will be updating you all on the winner of the pageant after the event, with some pictures of the day.
If you are interested in entering the Pageant or if you would like tickets for the event please click on the link below.
I have also uploaded a new YouTube video about this event which can be found in the post above this blog entry.

I sit here today having to share two YouTube videos which drove me to tears yesterday.
Listening to the stories made me realize how much we take for granted in fact I have been feeling like that for a few weeks now and since I have been digging deep trying to reach goals and dreams and live life to the full.
Please take the time to have a look at the videos below and I would like to say thank god you ladies came out of your ordeals safe and sound and thank you so much for sharing.
Lupe Fiasco B!tch Bad (My thoughts)
Well I came across Lupe Fiascos new music Video entitled “Bitch Bad” a few days ago and I had to get on here to express my thoughts.
OUTSTANDING is the only way to describe this fantastic song and video.
It speaks about how influential music and music videos are today and especially influential music is children.
I spoke about the state of music in my previous post a few weeks back and the fact that so much music today seems so generic and mind dumbing at times.
One thing I maybe did not go into enough is how concerned I am by the things being shown in music videos today that young people see on a day to day basis and so many inappropriate things in the charts these days.
These things have no water shed even though a few have argued about this in the past nothing has been done about it.
Children are being subjected to so much over sexualised music, low murals, and low value of money, drink and violence.
Another point in the video which I totaly agree with is the way in which some woman are degrading themselves and not knowing self worth or value and then trying to attract a man and wondering why they are undervalued.
It is important for us as adults to be more aware and monitor what our children sees and hears.
Obviously if there is a moral to the story that teaches children something I am all for it but I for one find my self monitoring the music videos my children watch.
Of course allow children to have fun be innocent and be children it is not about not allowing them to have fun and enjoy music but it is most defiantly about realising the impact that music has on the children today.
Now of course many woman are ladies who knows how to take care of themselves and carries themselves well and would never allow them selves to be degraded in any way, shape or form. When you watch the video then you will have more of an insite as to what I am referring to.
Woman should start acting like ladies with respect for themselves in order to gain respect in order to allow men to respect more ladies instead of the disrespect of “Bitches.”
Of course there are many Ladies out there who care and demand respect “I for one” How ever there is a generation of woman who are lost.
There are many gentlemen out there who has so much respect for woman but there are the few who degrade woman and music has a lot to do with it.
This video is something all should watch and gain an understanding of.
What I love about Lupe is that he is not afraid to step outside of the box and he delivers music you can relate with and actually understand.
He is a very thought provoking artist who does not care what the mainstream is pumping out but instead delivers fresh meaningful, educated music.
Underrated but aren’t all talented artists these days? Let’s change that!
When I was sent a promo copy of the new Ice Berg Slimm album I was so excited and I could not wait to hear it.
It had been a while since any new album releases for this talented UK rapper his last album “Da World On Ice” was released in 2004, So this I had been waiting for.
IceBerg Slimm has many hit songs and is renowned for his hit singles “Nursery Rhymes” “Badboy” “Lonely” and “starship” to name a few.
Iceberg Slimm also has many collabarations with Raghav one of which is the single entitled “can’t get enough”
Those of you who have read my previous blog called “the state of music” would know how much I have been waiting to hear some fresh music that would take me back to when music had meaning and good lyrical content well finally it is here!
This new album is entitled Higher, Higher is the first of four FREE albums forthcoming from Iceberg Slimm
This new vibrant album was outstanding the UK born rapper has stayed true to his old school rap roots. I love that he has not changed his style to suit the UK rap vibe that we constantly hear but kept true to his style and flow.
This in turn has the sounds of real old school hip hop back in the days when vibes like Method man, Redman, Wu tang clan and Big daddy kane were blazing through our speakers.
The album is full of heart and the music is so fresh and with crazy, mind blowing beats.
This album is refreshing and is defiantly set to be a world wide hit, because I believe that it is not only what the UK is missing right now but what the world and hip hop is missing as a whole.
There is so much empowering and thought provoking lyrics that in turn it is an eye opener for adults and children.
This album has been produced under Icebergs label Frojak Entertainment, Iceberg Slimm and Frojak have done a joint venture deal with D’vinci (Prime Minister) and Koalishon Music Group creating the brand F.E.K.M.G..
The production is of the highest quality, his lyrical flow amazes me, he has a fantastic way with words.
Favorite tracks “Hallelujah” “Rock da bells 2012” “King man” and “Ted Dibiase” are great songs if I had to chose only four that is as I really have so many favorites.
The song inside is a deep track where he speaks of the difficulty he has had in the music industry as he chose not to go the UK rap/Grim scene but chose to follow his true American hip hop roots.
Hats off to him it surely is not easy in the UK to pull it off but it is most defiantly in his blood. Ragga artists are not always from Jamaica but yet many artists use the phrases or accents, soul singers are not all Afro Americans the list goes on so if he has it go for it I say.
So my view is listen to this album for what it is and make your own judgement “organic” conscious REAL hip hop!
Fantastic rapper and album, an album all should hear and especially the youth of today!!
