Maleek
speaking with NotjustokTV described the reception of his performance at
the show as a really good feeling and is already getting accustomed to
life as an artist and performer too but can’t tell if he prefers being a
producer to an artist.
I’m getting very used to my artist side, I feel like every musician is an artist by nature, like it’s instinctive, it’s in us” he said.

instrumental to his music, saying he knows most of how the melodies from

listening to Brandy for a long time, she’s like the vocal bible, every
Brandy album I know the melodies, that’s how I train my ears, “

The
producer artist addressing rumours that he was going to be signing to
an international record label said there is nothing on the cards for
now, and he’s happy to just have that creative freedom for now.
About
whether he is signed to Wizkid’s “Star boy” imprint, Maleek says he and
Wiz in 2012  just came up with that name with the aim of promoting and
taking African sound to the world, and there was no official business
contract binding of that sort, rather the affiliation is purely “family
driven.”
“My whole relationship with
Starboy is like family, we never did things business wise, and that’s
how me and wiz still are, we’re  family.“

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.
