I Love Music: The Kelis Edition.

  As is usually the case with my 'I Love Music' posts, it all started when I found myself falling down a YouTube hole...I watched video after video of Kelis when I felt nostalgic for music of the late 90s/ early 2000s. When I listened to 'Caught out there' and 'Good Stuff', I marvelled about... Continue Reading →

I Love Music: The Whitney Houston Edition.

1. Whitney Houston will always live on as an RnB music legend. ________________ 2. Her vocal range, especially at the peak of her career, was mind-blowing. ________________ 3. She struck me as someone who had a sense of humour. ________________ 4. I loved her in ‘The Bodyguard’; she played the part of a demanding MusicDiva... Continue Reading →

I Love Music: The Maxwell Edition.

  There are a lot of things that I don't miss about the early 2000s (such as low-rise jeans), but I do miss the cable TV gem known as Channel O (why did DSTV West Africa get rid of it? 🤔). Here, we were blessed with quality RnB and Hip Hop music videos which served... Continue Reading →

I Love Music: The ‘Get Lifted’ by John Legend Edition.

3 Reasons Why I Love This Album: 1. For a debut album, ‘Get Lifted’ was a bold ray of sunshine in the mid-2000s popular music scene. Here was John Legend, unique and unpretentious with his piano-playing skills and melodic vocal talent, simply telling stories with his music. 2. It is one of the last albums... Continue Reading →

I Love Music: The Ne-Yo Edition.

Hey! I’ve been in low spirits in the last few days-dealing with allergy issues and remembering my friend on the 3rd anniversary of her death-and I’ve found that music has helped a lot to improve my mood. I recently listened to ‘So sick’, the first Ne-yo song that I knew of in the mid-2000s. It... Continue Reading →

I Love Music: The Rihanna Edition.

3 Reasons Why I'm a Rihanna Fan: 1. Rihanna's first album, 'Music of the sun' was released in 2005, and since then, I feel that she has not only grown as an artist, she has demonstrated that she is comfortable with her own interpretation of her musical talent, and is not restricted by people's opinions...

I Love Music: The ‘Soul Food’ Soundtrack Edition.

  I think 1997 was one of my favourite years, music-wise. It was the era of Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G, when Hip Hop and RnB felt much more mainstream than they are today.   I did not watch the movie, ‘Soul Food’ at the time it was released; I watched it much later... Continue Reading →

I Love Music: The Akon Edition.

  Akon is an American singer of Senegalese descent whose music was very popular in the mid-to-late 2000s. I believe that the very first song of his I heard was 'Locked Up', and I was captivated by his unique vocals and musical style.   I haven't heard much from him music-wise in recent years, but...

I Love Music: The Joe Thomas Edition.

3 Reasons Why I'm A Joe Fan: 1. His voice: Pure RnB vocals, like melted butter, chocolate and honey mixed together  (now I'm hungry). 2. His songs: Romantic and mellow music suitable for baby-making projects. 3. His cover of Adele's 'Hello' is my favourite of the covers I've heard. My favourite Joe songs: I wanna...
