RLR’s own Writer / Producer Michael Hanson wanted to nail down “the big one”… something that was unforgettable … but that had a strong dance factor on the bottom. The end result from Hanson and JB Sky was exactly that, and more!

“Praising and worshipping God through music has been my passion ever since I had encounter with Jesus Christ.”
Deena Ade proves different from the current roster, a music critic said last week. A smoky new voice in the Nigerian music industry. It is smoky, sultry and powerful in smooth runs with unique melodies throughout the record. Deena almost loses her mind in emotion of Let It GO, but it is a vivid description of confusion in love. She moves from house to soul with ease, although genre hopping isn’t new from this young super star. Deena Ade has grown from strength to strength, since her last project “The Side Chic”. Once again, she does not hold back her feelings. Whether it be anger, need or sexual desire.
NATIVE MAG “Everything from her sultry vocals to her to the lyrics screams sexual empowerment”
DJ Douglas of TheBeat 99.9FM “The music is honest, something that isn’t being done. Especially with female artists.”
Monstar of Chocolate City “The music is provocative and it oozes soul”
Tec of SDC “This is the type of music that is missing from the sphere”
‘Down’ has been critically acclaimed and has been receiving continuous support from radio all over Nigeria.
The music on The Cries of My subconscious is a beautiful blend of Neo- Soul, house music, hip hop and Afro beats. Deena doesn’t compromise her signature style of soul and swag on the upbeat songs. Topics vary, from wanting and seducing a potential partner on MELO, to almost crying on the track LET IT GO to a partner. She appeals to a partner to not play games with her on SHERE and competes in a game of mind in LOVER.
All these songs have a common underlying theme of love and pain, as you see in the promo pictures. The music has been heavily influenced by Amy winehouse, Tiwa Savage, Beyonce and Nicki Minaj. Artists she looks to for inspiration.
The reception Deena Ade has received from blogs, magazines, radio stations such as the Beat FM Lagos and Ibadan, Kiss FM Lagos, Ray FM to name a few. As a result, Deena Ade is planning a small concert of her catalog. This will be happening in June
A YouTuber who created a “women’s edit” of Childish Gambino’s This Is America video says it’s been “misinterpreted”.
Nicole Arbour describes her post as a “female positive/empowerment video”.
She’s faced strong criticism online – including accusations of belittling “black pain” and “stealin[g] our culture for money”.
Others told her to “stop cheapening black art and creativity” – but Nicole says people are “wrongly portraying this as white vs black”
Donald Glover’s original This Is America music video was released on 5 May and was praised for its commentary on issues like racism and police violence.
One week later, Nicole posted her own version online.
Many people have argued that her video makes light of “black pain and oppression”, as well as “editing out the race issues in favour of the feminist issues.”
Nicole responded on social media, saying “this was not the intent or theme at all”.
“It was created with every intention of bringing a light to women’s experiences,” she said.
“It was a tongue in cheek way to give additional glory to what I believe is the most impactful piece of art in recent years.
“Due to the sensitive nature of the original, I understand why some people are wrongly portraying this as white vs black,” she added.
Nicole ended her statement with a call for others to “create their own version of this video”.
“Through this honesty, I believe we can discover a new level of empathy and understanding for each other.”
This isn’t the first time a Nicole Arbour video has caused controversy.
In 2015, she uploaded “Dear Fat People”, which was called out for fat-shaming.
“That video was made to offend people,” she said at the time, addressing the video on US chat show The View.
“It’s just satire, I’m just being silly.”
One Million Guitars is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Foundation on a mission to impact the lives of millions of children around the globe through the power of a musical instrument. Having early access to music education can transform the future of a great learner and affect the trajectory of their entire life. Apart from the subjective notion that music lifts the soul, it has been empirically shown that learners with the benefit of a musical training excel in other academic and creative domains. Yet so many of our brightest minds, those that can inspire future generations to improve our world, do not have access to a music education.
One Million Guitars, 1MG, is going to fix this dilemma, one guitar at a time. Under the leadership and vision of master musician David Broza, a lifelong peace ambassador and children’s advocate, over the next five years, 1MG will distribute more than one million guitars worldwide to children and leverage social media to create an online music academy and community of engaged, young learners.
These millions of kids will each be empowered by and granted a 1MG scholarship that includes a beautiful professional instrument built to last, online training by world renowned recording artists and professional musicians and access to local events and peer to peer training.
This all starts and ends with a kid with a guitar. Given the opportunity to surface the best version of themselves., millions of like minded children around the world will unite in a global chorus of personal growth, potential, diversity and peace.
Join us on this quest to bring the empowerment of music education into the lives of millions of kids.
How does it work?
1MG offers a 1MG Scholarship to young students that includes the 1MG signature guitar, extra strings as well as the 1MG starter instruction book. Students then need everything they need to start on their transformation journey. Additionally they will have access to online video tutorials created by some of the world’s leading artists as well as community contributors.
How can I help?
You can join the community of passionate individuals making a difference in million of kids lives in a variety of ways.

How do I contribute?
