Now this is a concert i want to be at.
Drake’s- Would You Like A Tour needs come to SA. We always get looked over.
You need to watch the full tour to see how insane it is. The vibe must be on another level. He brings out Jhene Aiko and The Weeknd and they perform their own tracks too.
The 2014 BET Awards came with a bang. A full weekend of events coined the BET Experience which included talk show events, celebrity basket ball games and live performances boosted excitement to the climax that was the actual red carpet and award show.
I started off my BET weekend by checking out the BET Fan Fest at the Los Angeles Convention centre. South African group Mafikizolo performed their hits Khona and Happiness and they killed it. I also checked out the Celeb basket ball match where Justin Bieber, Chris Brown and Tyga played.
The next day i received vip access to the Ford red carpet which had two 2015 Ford Mustangs on display. I saw and spoke every celeb that walked with me in the red carpet. (Pictures coming in next post)
Now let me tell you. I was amped beyond for the awards show. The line up was epic and BET blind sided us by giving us Surprise performers. Chris Brown came out and killed it! So did Yolanda Adams and Iggy Azalea. I even got to see Jhene Aiko do her thing. They also announced that they have a surprise performance from….Beyonce and JayZ. The crowd went crazy but when it came to their time to hit the stage, we were hit with a live cross over from their On The Run Tour. smh!
I enjoyed it all so much. It was such a great experience to be a part of. See the performers HERE.
Chris Brown and Lil Wayne
The 2014 BET Awards is happening soon and with the network promising this year to be the greatest showing yet many have been speculating which artists would be gracing the stage. Earlier in the month BET announced fans could expect performances from Pharrell Williams, Usher, Drake and Lil Wayne. At the time, the only female performer announced was Jennifer Hudson. And now an exciting crop of talent was unveiled!
With a new album due anytime now, Nicki Minaj will be taking the BET stage live to perform. Joining Ms. Minaj on stage will be John Legend, My bae Jhene Aiko, and August Alsina.
Our very own Mafikizolo will also take the stage to perform! I wonder if they will sing Khona or Happiness?
Chris Rock will host the affair at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles and yes i will be there.
Oh and yeah, i will be posting photos and updates from the Red Carpet and Award show.
Lately i have noticed how petty people can be. No one is genuinely happy for anyone as jealousy is unmistakable in the things we do and more specifically things people fail to do. Maybe i expect people to be like me, happy for the next to succeed and proud to see people flourish to be the best that they can be.
I sometimes question why i don’t receive that in return. Surely if you call yourself my friend you would wish me well and be happy for me? Sadly that has not been the case. I have experienced people i know, sulking in realization of the results of my hard work. Now don’t get me wrong, i am not one to discuss or brag about opportunities or blessings. I am usually a “Don’t ask, Don’t Tell” kind of guy but when i tell and then i see that you are acting different afterwards then yes the above is about you.
With that said……I am happy to announce that i am going to AMERICA to attend the 2014 BET Awards!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I haven’t been yet and i have been planning to go for ages.
Getting my USA visa approved in a short amount of time was such a stress. I was nervous that i might not get it in time but thank God i did.
This was my reaction when my VISA got approved. God came through for me, i tell you. #ThankYouJesus
Then i did this as i walked out of the Consular Service and saw the people in the queue waiting to find out their fate
and then this
and then this
Now i know that some of y’all are like this right now, but man i don’t care! I am so grateful for the fruits of my seeds. *Wait that sounds wrong*
