Album Review: There’s a new and vibrant Becca on “Unveiling” album

Published

on

10 years on stage is a milestone for any artist. It’s no easy achievement for a Becca who has to come up in a male dominated industry structure and found a path to stardom while affecting lives in the process.
Unveiling” is her third studio album, coming four years after her sophomore “Time 4 Me”
project, which was released in 2013, under EKB Records. Her first,
“Sugar”, did the hardest task of pushing her into Ghanaian stardom and
African recognition. She has since pushed through with Hiplife, a genre
that she warmly embraces and expands on each project.

But
“Unveiling” brags different. It’s a project symbolizing a new beginning
for Becca. Where previously she stuck to Hiplife, this project has her
redefining and expanding her artistry to capture the growing Afro-pop
movements for which West Africa is enjoying the world’s spotlight.
“Unveiling” brings a new Becca, a matured woman with a hunger to spread
her wings and fly to more markets. She is backed by her deal with a new
record label, Zylofon Music, who are risking it all for this.
The
project is being promoted across music hotspots across the world;
Lagos, Johannesburg, London and New York. Major promotional funding has
been poured into the project. Her billboards have invaded the streets of
Lagos, and she is touring these cities to talk about the project.
The
expansion of Becca’s artistry is multi-layered but with a core focus.
She is simply taking what’s trendy from her home country, and modifying
it for a wider audience. Mr Eazi, an export from the
country who is currently on the push for global recognition opens this
album on ‘Number 1’. The music here has the classic pop bounce that
Nigeria currently enjoys in pop music. You could find the same formula
on the harder-hitting record, ‘Na wash’, which features sublime work by Patoranking.
It’s beautiful ‘Pon pon’ music, which is instantly recognizable as one
of the benefits of cultures fusing sounds together. ‘You and I’
featuring Stonebwoy is another record with international potential.

It’s
a deliberate attempt at appealing to wider audiences, powered by pop
sounds. But that’s not the full story. There’s still the Becca we all
know; the Hiplife artist who wears her heart on her sleeves and spreads
love via Hiplife. She’s already scored a national street anthem on ‘Beshiwo’ featuring local legend, Bisa Kdei. ‘Summy3’ uses its emotional depth as a vehicle for connectivity, while ‘Crazy’, ‘You and I’, and ‘Mi new waa’, offers different takes on thematic love.
Becca
executes her plan perfectly on “Unveiling.” It’s a new energy for the
singer, who is entering the next stage of her music career, armed with a
fresh dynamic to her music, and a style that is inclusive but retains
her essential originality. Based on all of this, the music on this
project is strong enough to push her vision.

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.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced.

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
