MOBO MeView + TweetView

So basically I started writing notes for my MeView. If you haven't experienced a MeView (my view on a performance/concert) click here. It was going well until, well, Twitter became more interesting. I hardly watched the TV because I spent my time copy and pasting funny quotes from Twitter. I always tell people about the jokes I get from my timeline. Today I'm snitching on everyone I follow with a public account. (Disclaimer: YOU may have a private account but if it got RT'd by someone on my timeline with a funny tweet, then you are in here) Oh and one more (Disclaimer: I only realised the fact some may have private accounts long after. Apologies in advance. Holla at me and I'll remove your tweet).

I'd like to thank all of you, my unaware Tweeting contributors. Here goes the MeView x TweetView (snitchin'). I DON'T NECESSARILY AGREE WITH EVERY TWEET/OPINION. IF I THOUGHT IT WAS FUNNY OR INTERESTING I'VE POSTED IT. SOME I AGREE WITH, SOME I DON'T, ALL ARE WORTHY

For entrance photo's go here

If you didn't watch, some of it may be slightly confusing. To watch:


RT = retweeted = copy and pasting someones tweet to show your followers, either to agree, it's funny or to add/correct/amend

Gwaan J2K performing with Mark Ronson. Lol @ him shouting out Roll Deep. This weird chick can't sing though. Oh ok, Manga too. Maybe this is the whole Roll Deep entourage with the platinum haired man. WE WANT AMY WINEHOUSE THOUGH! Mark Ronson without her is Jacobs Crackers without butter.

LMAO @ Wiley performing Cash In My Pocket! He hates this song. Dressed like me the last time I went to Liquid though. Tune lacks vibes. WE WANT WHEN I'M 'ERE NOW! Booooooooooooo that was boring. And why they keep cutting to a black audience in the dark? Don't they know all we see is teeth and eye balls?

World Cup 2010 in Africa, Ghana do well so Reggie Yates embraces his African heritage in public? (disclaimer: I never knew until this year) Why he roll out with four topless men without a no homo badge? And who the hell are Lebara Mobile? I see certain man handing out their cards. I never stop. Reggie's got jokes "Name checking Jason Derulo." Who's the random man singing (poorly) whilst Alesha Dixon walks out. And oh no, she looked so sexy until she spoke. Why does she have that voice Jah?

Ahahahaha @ them saying "You've only got yourself to blame if your favourite act doesn't win". That's in response to last year's shenanegans with Tinchy. I wonder if Tinchy's there today.

Sorry but why don't they have a comedian presenting? Reggie's to clean cut for this. It's all a bit sudden. Ohhhhhhh Grime Daily got a shout out!

(Barbie and) Ken hair Jermaine Jackson was there last year nah? Anyway he's presenting the first "Moble" (think he got confused with MOBO and Lebara MOBLE - you know Americans don't pronounce "mobile" correctly) award for Best Hip Hop/Grime. Come on Giggs! Youth with the football got skills. Ah booo Pro Green wins. Not even Skepta. BADMAN speech from Pro Green though "Big up Kate Nash's second album".

Last years Best Newcomer Act JLS presenting this years award. Tinie Tempah has to get this. Strong category though. And yes Tinie Tempah wins. What's he gonna say in slow-motion. Well deserved. Ok, speech is a bit long, play the Grammy music. Oh safe, I kinda got a big up cos I wrote good things about him.

LOL Reggie to Alesha from Mis-teeq: "yeah successful trio, girl group long hair, one MC? Cleopatra" joke was good.

N-Dubz are them kids!

Peak! Reggie putting people on blast this year. LOL @ warning Alexandra Burke to keep her weave away from the lights.

(This is where I start to watch Twitter more than the TV)

Yeah so I missed a couple awards. African and JLS won something. Reggie introduced Alesha's single as smash hit. Which part? If she MC's I'm gonna punch my screen.

Nelly and Mohombi present an award

"i'll tell u why they got Nelly - because no other US act said yes. Lol. Simples. Trust."

Me in response to the above tweet: Not even Jason Derulo?

"i was offered an interview with the dude last week - not sure why I would have said yes. Sorry. It's not 2006."

Backstage N-Dubz interview Jay Sean

@madnewsblog Janice Miss Mad News
"Who told Skepta that it was a good idea to wear an outfit that looked like something Cilla Black would have worn in the 80s?"

Plan B won something

@XianLoves ❤ Xi'an Loves ❤
"Plan B has got no neck"

Dance troupe Peridot selected "randomly" by Reggie Yates to dance to some big tracks over the years in honour of MOBO 15th anniversary

Me: Peridot dancing. Atful (I'm not correcting that typo, sounds like a freshie 'Atful' haha) Dodger 'Re-e-wind' is still a dutty banger. Damage 'Ghetto Romance' = one of the best UK R&B songs ever. Romeo 'OH No' is greeease! Lethal B 'Pow' = classic. Dizzee Rascal 'Bonkers' = so yeah I've never understood breakin' to grime like they did to Pow!

So, Jamaican Music Is Currently Dominating UK Pop Chart

Based on official UK top 100 singles chart week commencing 15th April 1. Drake featuring Wizkid & Kyla Don't listen to the afrobeats or UK funky claims, Drake made a dancehall song with elements of the aforementioned. But I addressed that in the ' Mis-Appreciation of Jamaican Culture ' post. 2. Sia feat. Sean Paul - Cheap Thrills Sidenote: Song declined by Rihanna 5. Zara Larrson - Lush Life Sidenote: Allegedly a song declined by Rihanna. Not sure how true that is. 10. Rihanna feating Drake - Work (peak chart position 2) 13. Major Lazer feat. Nyla & Fuse ODG- Light It Up (peak chart position 7) Sidenote: Nyla is part of Brick & Lace fame. They dropped one of the best written dancehall pop crossover songs ever in Love is Wicked . I believe she's the singer although she singjay's on this. 26. Justin Bieber - Sorry (peak chart position 1) 39. AlunaGeorge feat. Popcaan - I'm In Control 43. Kygo - Stay (peak chart

About Chronixx Somerset House show: this is NOT a review

So basically, I went to Chronixx's show at the prestigious Somerset House on Sunday. Had the time of my life again. Decided I'm not gonna write a review on Monday because what else is there to say? I've seen him five times (six if you include the time babylon locked off proceedings cos of curfew in Jamaica. Seven if you include his appearance at Rebel Salute) and been impressed every time. How do I keep retelling the same story? "You have to see this guy. It is one of the best shows you will experience in these times," will forever be the moral. If you wanna read a review of this show  go here . You can take in my reviews of Chronixx in 2014 and 2013 . If you wanna do that and wanna hear what I've got to say, stay here.

Remember When Riddims Were King

Before you read, thank you for your interest and hope you enjoy. I actually fleshed it out into a book. You can get your copy from   Now for what you came here for... When Riddims Were King 23rd May 2020 will be remembered in history for one of the most epic events in one of our universe's darkest times. We will never forget the night dancehall kings and former extremely heated rivals, Beenie Man and Bounty Killer, battled on the Verzuz platform built by hall-of-fame producers, Timbaland and Swizz Beatz. An unfiltered, 360-degree view on Jamaican dancehall events was showcased; DJ’s and dancing (Beenie Man’s daughter Desha Ravers) to deejay’s clashing on the same riddims. The latter elements provided the jewels in the night’s highlight reel, and undoubtedly the best thing to happen on the Verzuz series. Word spread like guava jelly within the dancehall community and Jamaican diaspora upon announcement. Not only was it a clash between the longest and fier
