Neyo

‘Good Man’ is officially out and so is the album, also titled ‘Good Man’. The much-hyped album is the singer’s 7th studio album with top hits like Another Love Song, Apology and now Good Man.

But what grabs the fans attention most is the later. In a struggle between mending the wrongs and staying true to one’s identity, the crooner smoothly navigates the seemingly rough waters to break down his intended message; the challenge of being a perfect person.

“This video is about the wrongs we do and the potential danger that comes with. It’s about remorse for our wrongs and the mental (or physical) letter we write to the person we’ve wronged but also to ourselves to remind us of what it is we need to be for that person. In the case of myself, a Good Man. It’s a struggle.” Reads part of the introductory message on his YouTube page.

Maintaining intimate relationships is tough, and Neyo knows this very well considering the fact that he’s been through many relationships that never ended well for him.

‘A breakup is like getting shot in the foot. The pain of it all takes time to heal’ he adds. On several occasions, we try our best to look good, feel good and hopefully get some appreciation at the end of the day. But that never happens to everybody.

PERFECTION is a steamy subject on its own, and the tendency to behold it dearly lies hidden in our personalities. This creates a bridge between the wrongs and rights we put forward when expecting some gratitude from our partners.

The song “Good Man” is all about making an effort to stay right with your partner and steadily sticking to that path. For women, finding that ‘Good Man’ could be a journey not worth relenting because as the society has taught us, good men are not easy to find.

5 Principles of Guy Code That Men Should Not Overlook

cute-couple-piggypack_4460x4460

Guy code refers to rules that control the way men should act when interacting with females or other males. In an intimate relationship, the following five principles must be adhered to keep the love affair functional

  1. wing man is a must when interacting with women

A wing-man is basically your third hand in a relationship. He supports your ideas-whether crafted on lies or truth- as you spill them to her. He makes additions to your seemingly incomplete statements, ‘Jay is also a mechanic. He fixed my car the other day.’  Make sure your wing-man knows your lifestyle, that’s where the basis lies

  1. Never propose inside your house

There comes a time when you’ve got to settle. Dating can be expensive, and either way must come to an end. But what matters most is how you go about it. Women get emotional when a man proposes, and that day lingers in their mind forever.

To make it more memorable, take her to the beach, a famous historical site, or other place far away from home.

  1. Small talk bears no topic, keep it open

Small talk shouldn’t be about YOU but her. This is a general social interaction between the two of you. You don’t want to upset her or make it boring with your all time ‘how was work’ phrase. Therefore, keep the conversation on her side. Compliment her hair, clothing and shoes. This will keep it lively

  1. Commitment should be on the table, don’t brush it off

Men tend to ignore dedication in relationships when there are no bumps in affairs of the heart. I guess it’s inscribed in our DNA. Being committed means that full unidirectional focus on lady. At some point in the relationship both of you will ask, ‘where the heck are we going with this.’ And that’s when commitment issues swing in.

  1. Always Be On The First Move

When dating, be the front gate and prioritize your ideas but don’t limit her contributions with sudden interjections. If the two of you ‘cliqued’, then make the next move. Take offenses lightly, no relationship ever sails smoothly. After all, a study shows that men’s

skin is twice thicker than that of women, which means they can take any form of offence tossed at them

 

 

Bill Cosby, Roman Polanski Excluded From Television Academy

abstract, analog, art

In a move to sanitize its flaunted reputation, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science membership has voted unanimously to expel two of the greatest actors in the history of Television shows, Bill Cosby commonly known as the ‘ America’s Dad’ and 2003 Oscar winner, Roman Polanski.

This action was compelled by the two’s previous scandalous history of sexual assault cases that saw each of the actors found guilty of sexual harassment during their acting careers.

Cosby, who’s currently awaiting sentencing, after being charged with sexually assaulting several women who publicly came out to confirm the cases, has been on the receiving end of many of such complaints which have hugely dented his image as a respected silver screen actor.

According to the Guardian, the Academy termed the two as ‘disgraced stars’ and the move to bar them was aimed at encouraging members to live by the standards which foster respect for human dignity.

Polanski, who has been in the Academy for nearly three decades, prior to winning an Oscar in 2003 (The Pianist), was convicted of defiling a teen but no action was taken against his membership in the Academy until recently.    

Cosby and Polanski follow a list of other two Hollywood actors, Harvey Weinstein (for sexual harassment) and Carmine Caridi (The Godfather) who shared a Screener of the film before being launched.

Spotting a Deceitful Boss

woman-runs-board-meeting_4460x4460

You have been a passionate employee in a firm for over two years. You have learned and fully understood the working environment, which includes your job’s responsibilities and the duties you perform towards the betterment of the company. Then a casual thought strikes your mind: I think I’m ready for a promo! As you ponder over it, you decide to approach your boss the following day, probably during lunch break when he/she’s not busy.

You openly present the idea, wholly disclosing the reasons for your much-anticipated promotion. You cite the experience you’ve gained, the additional knowledge and skills you have obtained from those evening classes that acted as a stepping stone towards your career development. He calmly glares at you, gives a nod to show comprehension and then says, “I’ll look into it.”

Everybody lies, not just politicians. Your boss is no different. Sometimes what employees ask for cannot be implemented right away. To avoid the problem of directly upsetting employees, bosses will lie to them in an effort to keep them ‘focussed on the job’, which is all they want.

Identifying a lying boss is very easy;

Elusive Bosses

When someone doesn’t want to grant you something, they tend to be very cagey with every bit of conversation they have. Some topics are never mentioned while conversing. For your job appraisal linked to a pending promotion, he may quickly diverge the talk to a completely different topic. The boss doesn’t want to tell you that your request can’t be looked into at that particular time or is a NO!

Unusual Body Language  

This ranges from maintaining eye-contact to acting fidgety. Fidgeting is a sign that your boss is lying, the uneasiness comes with an understanding that he may/will never fulfill your earlier requests and/or demands. Sometimes this can be very difficult to maintain especially when he’s been non-committal to several employees

The Boss Doesn’t Remember Your Request(s)

A quick reminder about the promotion you had discussed earlier sends him in a state of de-linkage, a clear indication that he may have forgotten about the discussion the two of you had. Accompanied by frantic responses of phrases like “…uh!” ”…really?” or”…please remind me” which shows that he never bothered to put the request to scrutiny with the management to see if it’s viable   

Kenyatta University Student Earns Big From Custom Accessories

Gibson Lewa/TreliksGlobb.com

The art of entrepreneurship is diverse and versatile. With a pair of scissors in hand, he uses super glue, a crochet hook, a knitting needle, and multicolored rags stuffed in a plastic bag to make amazing creations. Gibson Lewa, a 4th Year student at Kenyatta University, is always ready for outlandish requess from clients, customizing almost anything.

From watches, clutch bags, bowties, men, and women shoes to hoodies, he can modify them to suit your fashion style or swag. Using various colors, he customizes wristwatches with a touch of modern Ankara style to bring out gorgeous looking watches. Applying the same skill to bow ties, shoes and clutch bags, the final outcome is a creation of beauty and flair. His artistic talent and skills position him on the verge of future success.

“I collect these pieces of rags with different colors from your ordinary tailor after he’s cut them loose from the main cloth and tossed them away-probably for no use,’ he says. A closer look at the said rags reveals that they are of different bright colors ranging from blue, red, purple, yellow, orange and a sometimes a broad combination of various colors.

“I don’t care about what the tailors in the small joints I enter think of me. They think this is a waste (pointing to the rags stuffed in his bag). What they don’t know is that I pay my bills from the money I get after transforming these unwanted pieces of clothing into something good,” he adds.

While the understanding behind great entrepreneurship is founded on huge capital investments, sometimes you don’t need that financial support at all. Turning tiny pieces of clothing into money, Lewa proves that the basic, and perhaps the most important thing you need to grow is the skill. The financial capability will only act as a secondary supplement. Many college students rely on their parents to meet their needs. But not all of them have financially stable parents who can support them throughout the semester hence the need to explore other sources of income.

Career 101: Why Responding to ‘Negative’ Emails is Crucial

An email response from the human resource department to your earlier application reads, in part, “Thank you for your interest in IT Management position at TG Communications Ltd-not a real company. We owe our applicants adequate and professional communication regarding their effort in search of these limited job opportunities and we appreciate your endeavor.

However, we regret that your application DIDN’T make it to the next stage of this process. We’ve recognized your skills, knowledge and work experience and we hope to consider you for related future opportunities.

We have your contacts on the resume and are willing to engage you should any position become vacant in our department or any other pertinent prospect. We wish you well in your venture to gain growth.”  

With an assumption that you didn’t have high hopes on getting that position, or it was just a ‘by-the-way, let me shoot at this opportunity,’ your next step before clicking the Sign Out button will determine whether or not you possess some soft skills in professional communication.

Of course, I’m talking about replying to that negative email-the one that didn’t arouse excitement in you! It’s common and more so normal to receive such kinds of responses when we apply for jobs. The answer will always be either a big Yes or No. Funny enough, the negation part is most of the time in bold!

Some of you are right now wondering, ‘why should I respond to an email from a company that has just denied me a job?’ Well, think about the following;

  1. What if the chosen candidate doesn’t take the job?

It’s possible, it has happened before. If you came in second during the selection process, the HR will mostly gesture you for the position, after reviewing your qualifications

 

  1. Circumstantial; the firm decides to reopen the job search

The optics of rehiring an employee mostly circle around his/her behavior or attitude towards the company. And that grateful attitude can just land you the job.

 

  1. The firm decides to hire two people/An assistant is needed

To avoid job strain, an assistant IT manager could be in need. And flipping through your resume, it’s discovered that you fit that position.

 

It’s appropriate to simply write back, ‘Thank you for that decision and I look forward to future opportunities in your firm.’ 

 

 

 

2018: New Kenyan Albums to Be In the Spotlight

2017 was a bit unsettling for most Kenyan artists following the all-year political hullabaloo, which kept most musicians under the ‘wait and see’ type of setting. For this reason, many opted to either reschedule or recoil the release dates for their music.

Here are some of the artists in 2018 who have promised great music this year

  1. RED ACAPELLA

The duo chanted ‘Ona Sasa’ as their new song on social media platforms and TV shows which hyped their new  Acapella and Afro-fused music style. Speaking on 10over10 show, the two hinted at a new album before December. Let’s hope they’ll be featuring more new artists on that album

  1. SAUTI SOL

With Melanin and Girl Next Door, two of their new music having already seen the light of the day, the 2014 Best African Act winner could be tailoring their latest LP, Afrikan Sauce, to reinvent themselves after last years’ controversy which almost tilted their fan base. The band comprehends that they may lose a few fans, one lane no musician would dare cross!

  1. SERRO

After ‘Rongai’ and a couple of other soulful songs, Hulda Serro, one of the newest Soul/RnB artist in the 254 zone has tipped on gracing 2018 with  an EP, the very first project she hopes to have accomplished after graduating with a Music Production degree from Kenyatta university last year

  1. UKOO FLANI

‘Kenyan Message’ and ‘Suzie Noma’ are just among the list of tracks off her new album, SHE, which is yet to be launched this year. Muthoni sounds like she has changed her social engagements in support of the girl child with her song Suzie Noma and a direct hit on the bad and corrupt Kenyan leadership, which is portrayed lyrically in the Kenyan Message. Can’t wait to hear what the rest of the album holds

Noti Flow Teams Up With Prezzo for a Peace Song

tupendaneeee

Once again Prezzo has teamed up with the ever controversial Nairobi Diaries actress cum rapper Noti Flow, not for bad reasons, but for a peace song. The new hit dubbed Tupendane, which features the two rappers, has a strong message of peace following the current intense political climate in the country.

Everyone will admit that since August 8th, the kind of push and pull starting with the annulment of the elections by the Supreme Court to the segregation that followed the repeat polls have all raised the political heat in the country.

Produced by Sappy MusicLab and the video choreographed by  Redfellas, Tupendane which translates to love one another, has a direction to maintain love, peace and unity and relinquish ourselves off the kind of hatred and divisive chitchat  being spread by politicians

It’s true that music is a universal language and musicians can play a big role in bringing people together during times of crisis.

 

 

Finance:How to Make ksh. 5000 Daily Through Digital Marketing

It started with an invite from Twitter- a short but detailed piece of information on how cash in from social media platforms. Within the details were the message itself ( what in this case I would call the invitation), a phone number and the amount one could start earning immediately they joined the business.

At first glance, I thought it was a job opportunity! Having no job at that moment, I shifted my head in the ACCEPTANCE  direction and swung into action.

The Preparation

 The following morning, I met my invitee in town following the specific directions to the venue as it had been highlighted earlier. True to the point was the set training session that was just about to kick off. 

After 2 hours of vigorous explanations with break points of Q&A, I had made up my mind because of the opportunity I had seen in that line of business. Some will say, ‘Looking at the bigger picture’. Perfect!

The Process

How does it work? One may ask. Its simple; network marketing- Multi-Level Marketing to be specific- involves direct sell of products to customers whom in turn become distributors of the same product leading to an expansive downline chain of customers.The good thing about this business is the accumulated commission, and much of the work is done over the internet-using your smartphone.

Our highest earner Fredrick Havy boasts of more than 7 accounts each being credited with more than Ksh. 48,000 daily. He’s been in business for just 8 months and started with just Ksh. 3000 daily! Believing is a CHOICE but hard work pays. 

After reading this, I’m sure you’ve developed interest in this line of business and are eager to know more.

Women Who Make Over $60 An Hour for Cuddling

On my list of the top ten weirdest jobs on the planet, this one stands out as the creepiest. Most probably, if narrowed down to the current developments in the social world, one wouldn’t opt for this kind of work-cuddling

Just what does snuggling entail? Well, for starters, cuddling or snuggling as defined by Google means holding closely in one’s arms as a way of showing love or affection. True to the definition is what one, Janet Trevino, a 37-year-old from Texas, USA does as a business and I must say…the business is booming!

For just one hour, she makes a little over 65 US Dollars for simply cuddling her clients who are mostly men. Why men? You may ask. She says male clients are specific to the tune of snuggling because they haven’t ‘touched’ another person for a lengthy period of time. The best conclusion here is that these men most likely never hitched or had massive breakups when entering the ‘dating age’

The cuddling process may include; hugging, holding hands, massaging lightly, resting/sleeping while in close non-sexual positions and/or a simple conversation. Five things which a couple does on a daily basis being monetized!

         Keeping It Professional

Although this is one new kind of job, professional cuddling corporates like Cuddle Comfort and Snuggle Buddies have been offering these services for quite some time and one can actually work for them, as a professional Cuddler.  One a wide range, cuddling relieves stress and brings joy to the Cuddlist-one being cuddled. Moreover, he/she feels loved and accepted, a concept which many spouses will agree with.

           Getting Started

Becoming a private professional Cuddler doesn’t require much of capital like other businesses. In fact, all you need is the heart to do the business. Inviting strangers to your house for one-hour sessions doesn’t require any high-end resources unless you’re planning on going big-which would mean starting your own company. Samantha Hess while in college got into this business to pay for her tuition and care for her son. It worked; though with too much criticism surrounding her secret business which she conducted within the college premises.
