“One night in Vegas” Premiere in DC

I am in Washington DC for the premiere of “One night in Vegas” which will have two showings at the National Museum Theater tonight.

The movie stars Koby Maxwell, Van Vicker; Yvonne Nelson; John Dumelo; comedian Michael Blackson; new comer Sarodj Berton, who is a runway model and former Miss Haiti Universe; and Hollywood actor Jimmy Jean-Louis, who has worked with Bruce Willis, Harrison Ford and Matt Damon. Jean-Louis, is also known for his role on the NBC series “Heroes,” and was lead actor in “The of Life of Toussaint L’Ouverture”.

Landing Jean-Louis has attracted mainstream media in the US, which we hope in turn will attract more american audiences as we premiere around the US. This is one of largest budgets i have heard of for a Nollywood movie and I expect it will not disappoint.

I will post some pictures and my review of the movie this weekend.

mariah-nick-636

Ladies!!! Quick Question:
What is an appropriate age range that a women in her 40’s can consider when dating? Of course it all depends on the persons level of maturity but there is still an age range that is more acceptable than say 22? 🙂 I heard someone say, once a person passes 30 years of age they can date anyone 30 and up.

Kenya’s X-Tatic “Hit em up”

Back in the day when I was in Liberia, we use to get music and movies a little late, meaning months and sometimes even years unless it was a global or big artists. .. At that time there was no Youtube, Facebook, and the Internet was even more scarce in Africa than it is now (only about 16% of Africans have Internet access). Although I have been back home and know first hand this is not the case anymore, I was shocked to see how music specifically Hip Hop and R&B have influenced African Music.

After watching the video for X-Tatic song “Hit em up” I realized how global and blended our nation has become with American cultural. Don’t get me wrong…… The song is hot and she got nominated for Most Gifted Duo and Most Gifted Video for her song ‘Hit Em Up’ featuring Priddy Ugly by Africa’s prestigious “O Channel Music Video” awards. In addition, she inked a multi-album and full management deal with Sony Entertainment Music Africa in 2012 .

A piece from the article:

The 21-year-old was recently in Johannesburg, recording tracks for her debut full-length album with hot new producers ‘The Fahrenheitz’. The record will be released later in 2012 as part of the multi-album recording deal Xtatic has inked with Sony and is being preceded by the first single, ‘WILD!’ due to hit the airways in the next two weeks. Xtatic has also signed a full services management deal with Sony Music and ROCKSTAR4000, and worldwide Music Publishing deal with ROCKSTAR PUBLISHING, positioning her for a full assault on the South African, Nigerian, Kenyan, Pan African and, ultimately, global music scenes.

“We’re convinced that Xtatic has the kind of standout talent that will take her into many different markets and are thrilled to welcome her into the Sony recording family,” says RCA Africa Director, Spiro Damaskinos.

I guess those of us that are not on the continent miss the sounds of our music and want to stay true to our roots all while rejoicing in the progression of our continent. These days it seems Music is the telltale sign of that progression…
