In my last post I was banging on about what a wicked time I had at Milly's World.
It's definitely one of those events with "real talent". So I thought I'd give you a bit of notice for the next one which is on the 20th July with rapper Sincere headlining.
I'm going to try and make it if I'm in town. It's only £4 and in a great location in Camden! One not to miss.
Check it out.
Let me know if you're going!

Hey yall,

It's such a beautiful day here in London, so I'm going to try and write this one quickly so I go out and enjoy the sun while it lasts.

I hope you are good and pleased that I have been blogging quite a bit lately. Once I get into it I actually enjoy it. I think it's the pic and vid uploading that is the most tedious part but what's a blog without pics? BORING!

Anyhoo, so last night I had an amazing evening. I went down to The Monarch in Camden and stepped into Milly's World to support some stupendously talented UK rising stars.

My main reason for going was to see my sister Obenewa and my cousin Angel but I was also very pleasantly entertained by the beautiful vocals of Miss Cleosol.

Cleosol opened up the show with her fantabulous band and gave it all...she's got a great stage presence and is easy on the eye too.

Have a butchers:

Here's some footage I took with my lil camera

Next up was my know I'm slightly biased...BUT she's BAAAAAAAAD and A WICKED (excuse the excitement)...She's just excellent.
Anyway...see for yourself!

My family and West London properly represented last night! Next up was my cousin Angel...who I'm sure is no Angel lol, but has the voice and face of one nevertheless!
He blew us all away with his acoustic set. I wish I recorded more but it's hard to record and enjoy the set at the same time. So next time you'll have to come and see him for yourself!

As an artist, sometimes going to shows leaves you frustrated because some Artists have no heart....meaning I just don't feel anything from them when they perform. Like they're doing it for the wrong reasons or it is simply not their calling.
Last night I left the venue buzzing that I had witnessed some proper talent which inspires me also to step my game up.
I'm really proud of my cuz and sis cos I know how hard they work and how much music is their life. They WILL succeed!

Anyway mi dears...I bid you good day as I walk off into the sunshine. I'm off to buy school shoes for my boy as he insists on using them as football boots. Oh the joys of Motherhood!

Have a great day.
Love and Happiness

Oh My gosh I'm back again! lol


Can you believe I'm posting again?
I made a conscious effort to take a few pics and a little bit of footage this week. I can't promise I'll keep it up...but I'll try.

So...How are you? How's life been treating you? I'm very well, thanks for asking :)

What can I tell ya? you know I said I wasn't into doing videos because I'm not really into that video vixen malarkey....ummm...well...I only went and bloody did another one! lol
Okay...but here's my reason (excuse). It was for a very good friend of mine, poet,G.R.E.E.D.S'. Starring in it apart from myself are comedians Kat, Simply Andy and A Dot! They are hilarious. It should be out, I think this week, but I'll post it up for you, here, on Facebook and my twitter so that you can see it as soon as it's finito!
In the's an incy wincy clip from behind the scenes

Getting my make up touched up by RuMel

Moi and G.R.E.E.D.S

So filming for this video took up all of Friday and half of Saturday...but Saturday night it was party time.
My friend Mark De Clive Lowe AKA Mashi was in town from LA and performed a totally improvised set at Uprock's Party!

I had a fab time. And after a late night snack on Edgware Road, I didn't reach home till 6am!
I'm telling you...I'm out of practice with these late nights and paid for it on Sunday...and Monday to be honest. Hanging up my party shoes for a bit. I'm not so resilient in my old age!

As soon as I get pics from the shoot and from my last show, I'll post them along with the Official G.R.E.E.D.S video for "There She Goes Again" starring yours truly :)

Ciao for now

Erm so ...yeah it sounds mad to be saying Happy New year considering it is now May but as usual I dropped off blogging.
I guess I have a love/hate relationship with writing. I love it because I like to communicate and express myself but I hate the fact it is so time consuming. But hey, it is what it is.

If I tried to cover my 5 months of absence on here I won't be able to go out and enjoy the beautiful day we're having today in London (which is rare so I'm going to try and grab some rays).

I'm actually not sure where to start....

Okay, a couple months ago I was asked to be in a music video. Now I'm not into all that video vixen malarkey. But as it was Don E who asked me I obliged. He's an artist I looked up to when I was younger and it's nice to see him still making moves in the industry and producing quality soul music.

Here is the video...and before you say it...YES I know, I have a big butt!

I'm sure you must remember me mentioning my friend and fellow artist, Incisive before. Well he released valentine's EP which is FREE to download. There are some great collaborations with myself, the beautiful Terri Walker and the amazing Shakka!!!!
Here's the track I recorded with him last year which you can have for absolutely FREEEEE!

He has also developed a brand new concept, "The Car Show" and he asked me to be a part of it. Basically he is getting different artists to perform a track in his one take! Here's my attempt alongside my backing singers Kyri and Stephanie!

What else? Oh I won an Award!
Hehehehehehehehe, watch me just casually drop it into the conversation like it's nothing, I'm such an egg! lol
Well to some it may not be a big deal, but to me it's a great thing because it was an award that you guys, my supporters helped me achieve, by voting for me!
I won the Urban Vision Award sponsored by UVF/iMG/Universal Music Group for Best visual video of the year 2010 for my video "You Are The One" !

Last week I performed at the Legendary Charlie Wright's Jazz Club in Hoxton. Quite a few of you showed your faces despite it being a mid-week show, so I'm truly thankful, plus we had lots of fun! I had two photographers taking pics so hopefully in my next post I can show you some pictures.
I have a few more shows coming up which are TBC so I'll give you the heads up on those too.

That's my most recent news for now. If you want to let me know what you're up to holla at me on Twitter. I'm always up for a good old chinwag. And if you're on Facebook please add my Music page

That's all for now folks.

Have a blessed Sunday,
Love and Happiness

Hey peeps,

How are you ? I know my UK friends are battling with the snow, frost, generally crappy weather BUT the show must go on.

Anyone who knows me knows that I absolutely HATE the cold weather and I am a sun worshipper and practically go into hibernation in the winter. However my schedule this winter has not allowed for me to be the hermit that I am. So I invested in a fur coat and against my principles, some Ugg boots. Yes I know, I know, they're ugly...BUT, they keep your toes from catching frostbite. Trust me. It's not about appearance in these times here! lol
So...I WILL be looking like a lil bear if you catch me out and around town. I can't afford to catch a cold, neither do I have the desire to do so.

You'll be pleased to hear I've been a good girl. I've been taking my camera around town with me.
Last Week I was invited by one of my best buddies DJ Christoss to see The Legends of UK Soul in association with the ACLT in memory of Lynden David Hall. We were entertained by the likes of Don E, Mica Paris, Jonas, Joseph Junior, Sinclair and the Legendary Roachford.
Here's a clip of Roachford doing a song he wrote with the late great Lynden David Hall. "Where My Heaven Is". This song actually brought me to tears and meeting Lynden's wife who helped with the event humbled me.

Next up was Don E. Such a lovely guy and massive talent!!!

Mica Paris was last up and didn't disappoint.

At the end of the show all the artists had a lil jam session and even invited the backing singers to participate which was nice, especially since they were MY backing singers, Kyri and Stephanie. I was so proud :)

I must say, I really didn't want to leave the comfort of my home because the weather on Sunday was disgusting. But I so glad I made the effort to go and take in the show and give a lil to the ACLT charity. I know funds are tight right now...but you can give a £3 donation to the charity by texting 70300.

On a lighter note...I had the great pleasure of opening up for Glenn Lewis on Thursday.
Again the weather was absolutely pants and some of my friends (especially in South London) were snowed in which affected the turnout, BUT there was still a healthy crowd there to support.

Walk Right/Simple Sacrifice

You Are The One

I hope you've enjoyed the videos. Gonna watch the rest of Xfactor now as much as I really detest this series...discussion for another day...or twitter

Wrap up warm and be safe.
Much Love

Oooh la la la! lol


I hope you are all well.
Over the past few weeks I've had to deal with some things that I never in my lifetime thought I would, but I do believe we are not given anything we can't handle so I'm sure I will get through it. One thing it has taught me though is to really not sweat the small stuff. Things that would normally get me down or piss me off are now irrelevant.

I would like to send a special shout to my friends and band who have been very patient with me and have worked around me. Love you guys xx

Anyhoo....moving on here are some pictures from the shoot I did the other day. I'm really loving the black House of Rena dress and I didn't wanna take off the fur coat.

We had a lot of fun and I think we are due to shoot again soon!

Some pics from Shoreditch House Gig...Note to self...Learn to sing pretty!

Last week I performed @ I luv live and Soul 4 Real. Like a plum I forgot to get someone to film both of them. But everyone said they were good shows and my band enjoyed themselves.

My next gig is on the 2nd December 2010 @ The Vibe Bar, Brick Lane. I'm supporting Glenn Lewis and I'm excited as he's an artist I definitely look up to and he's got a character to match his lovely music.

I'll post you the link to the event in a couple days so you can get your tickets in advance because I'm sure it'll get sold out soon.

Until then
Keep safe and well
Love Nads xx

Good Evening all,

I'm very tired. It has been an emotional weekend but although I feel totally drained I can't sleep. So I thought I'd catch up with you.
In my last post I put up some stills from the video. I'm glad that I can now share with you the official video...

I'm much later posting it than the other blogs even though it is MY video! It's been up for 3 weeks now and has had over 5000 views. I wanna say a big thanks to everyone who's posted it on their twitter, facebook, blogs, magazines etc. I definitely would not have been able to spread the word without you lot! *snoggy kiss*

I know I've told you a kerbillion times already, "You Are The One" is my single, but I'm just letting you know that it is now available to download from most digital stores including itunes, so please support me and download my track. click here

This will look great on your ipod and sound even better! Trust me loool

A week before my single release (4th October 2010), I did a half hour set for an event called "Wired", which is a monthly event @ the swanky Shoreditch House in London. I have footage on my laptop, but here's some I found on youtube which has saved my lazy butt from editing...however I will put something together so you can see a bit of the other songs!

Last Friday I put on my modelling hat and did a photoshoot with Stylist Michelle Candice and Deyahna of Michelle Candice Styling and Make Up Artist Ru Mel. I left the 50's desperate housewife themed shoot totally in their capable hands, which was pretty brave of me, but I'm excited about the outcome!

Behind the scenes

I'll get the finished/chosen shots from the photographer, Richard in the next couple of weeks so as soon as I get them, you'll see them!

Eyes are actually closing now so, I'm going to use my remaining energy to get ready for bed.
Sleep tight and God Bless

BTW, I have gigs coming up on the 3rd and 8th of November...Will post details up soon on here and twitter...oh and on fb too.

You Are The One...

Hey dudes and dudettes,

It's been a long wait for my Single and video. But it's been out of my control.
BUT as they say...the best things come to those who wait and I thank you all for being patient. I must admit I was starting to lose mine (patience)!

Anyway. The video will be released for your viewing next week, followed shortly by a release date for the single.

I hope you like it and I would like to thank you again for your patience and support.
