I’m a big believer that change is good.To me LA is like the world’s greatest party,known for its Mediterranean climate, ethnic diversity, Hollywood, the entertainment industry, and it is the “misunderstood city”. . If you’re lucky enough to travel anywhere , this is a place you have to go & make the most of it. Have fun, take advantage of the opportunities and meet as many people as you can. . Thank you Harpers Bazaar US Magazine for helping me share this experience on the SEPTEMBER ISSUE . I never one day imagined I’d be in one of the Worlds biggest fashion magazine …..

The pic ‘implied’ that she was going to be on the cover of the popular magazine for their September issue.
But we did a little digging and it turns out it’s Alicia Keys on the cover.

Normani’s Motivation Video
Over the weekend, Normani finally dropped “Motivation,” the new single from her highly anticipated debut album, and, yes, it’s a banger!
In the video, Normani pays homage to early 2000s popstar hits. There’s ‘Easter Eggs’ throughout the entire video!
motivation at midnight !!!! so excited ahhhhhh hope you love it ✨ y’all know I love the early 2000’s pic.twitter.com/KJlpUSdC3R

Tweeps were impressed.
I don’t think y’all understand. I DON’T THINK YALL UNDERSTAND. Like yes it was super fun and upbeat but that fact that it also represents how normani is to little black girls what 90s/2000s black female artists were to her! The layers! The metaphors!

Normani did what she had to do!!! PERIODTTT! She payed homage to early 2000’s music and music videos while also making it her own! Ugh the FLAVOR

Anto Neosoul’s Explosive Moderation On #Thetrend
— NTV Kenya (@ntvkenya) August 16, 2019
Anto wasn’t holding any prisoners! He went HAM on the MCSK representative & Tweeps had things to say
#HeyAnto as much as I don’t agree with mcsk, am so convinced that you are not objective, you are so emotional…so not the right person for that interview
— Josh waruiru (@JoshWaruiru) August 16, 2019
Anto: I wanna understand where our money goes & why artistes are not paid fully.
Mcsk guy: Lemme first begin by saying th…
Anto: Just hold on ,we want to take a short break because here pay bills..
— 21 Cabbage?? (@21Cabbage20) August 16, 2019
#HeyAnto to be sincere, you ain’t being fair in moderating the discussion here. Actually the artists have done much of the talk, asking lots of questions but at the same time, not giving time to Peter Koigi respond to them.

And we peeped this Ad hominem
Sijawahi sikia mtu akisema yeye ni fan wa antoneosoul. Or who does he make music for?

Anto Clapped back
