The latest track from Deena Ade – Melo



Deena Ade is an alternative artist, who has been described as raw and powerful in her vocal and lyrical delivery. Reminiscent of the Eryka Badu and late Amy Winehouse to name a few. 

Melo Produced THABEATSMITH is the official single from her debut project ‘The Cries Of My Subconscious’

She explores a world of an Alpha female, who’s one desire is to capture the attention and love of another. Miss SLUTWALK herself proves once again to go against the grain in this song. Entwining her sultry vocals with her words of seduction.

Born Medina Agboluaje, the first of four children, music has been a substantial goal of Medina since the age of eight. As a child Medina performed around London for a local charity, which eventually led to performing for the late Papa Madiba in this state visit to London. Over twelve years later Medina can be found performing weekly in London’s hottest underground spots.

Having found much comfort in the training received by mentors such Beats by Sarz and other industry power players, Deena is now ready to face the music industry with the intensity she believes it is lacking. Using a name to define her sound and style can be quite daunting, but under the fabric of her stage performances lies a blueprint of influences. For example Amy Winehouse, Asa, Beyonce, Wizkid, Fela Kuti. 

Deena Ade is currently releasing a song a month for a year which will be followed up by an LP project, set to be released in November titled “THE FEMINIST”. As her talents and fan base continues to grow, she emphasises on people not to over look as her, as she is the future of the African Music Industry. As she says ” It doesn’t matter what people say, as long as they like my music’. 

 


Croydon grime star stormz his way through the Mobo awards




“This is a dream come true,” Stormzy said as he picked up three Mobo Awards in Leeds last night.

It represented yet another memorable landmark for the Croydon grime artist who released his acclaimed album ‘Gang Signs & Prayer’ this year.

The popular musician, 24, scooped best male, best grime star and best album at the award ceremony at the First Direct Arena in Leeds. Struggling to balance all three awards, Stormzy said: “This ain’t good when you’re drunk is it? Amazing, incredible… You watch the Mobos growing up so this is an honor. I’m so proud.”

He added that claiming the best album award was his most satisfying achievement.

TV presenter, Maya Jama, girlfriend of Stormzy – real name Michael Omari – co-hosted the awards.

The Mobos, which started in 1996, celebrates music of black origin.

Stormzy missed out on the best song category for his hit ‘Big for your Boots’ with J-Hus winning the prize for his single ‘Did you See’.
