There’s been a lot going on this week. From sexual harassments to the Dove advert. Let’s see what the ladies have to say about this…
WHO’S IN THE BUILDING THIS WEEK?
This week we had a new face in the building. We met a nice and fun lady at the AfroBeats In Conversation event back in October 2017. She’s what you call a triple threat; a blogger, hairdresser and make-up artist! We had the beautiful and bubbly Josephine in the building. Josephine is NOT afraid to speak her mind, I tell ya! You’ll be able to hear that on this week’s episode lol. Make sure you give her a follow on Instagram and Twitter @memojoandi.
JUST THE TIP
The new Dove advert has caused a bit of an uproar on social media. In the advert, you can see a Black woman changing into a White woman as she changes her top. The White woman also changes into an Asian woman as she changes her top. This ad has definitely touched a lot of nerves in the ethnic community. Especially since this isn’t the first time Dove has created questionable adverts. How do you feel about the advert? Do you think it’s racist?
RELATIONSHIPS AND BULLSHIT
Have you ever been in a situation where someone has let you down over and over again? Well I have and I’m sure you must have to! This blog was inspired by the series of let downs I’ve experienced in my life time. Discussing this topic was even more juicy this week since we had four girls in the building *wink wink*.

SKULLDUGGERY AND F*CKERY
Some people just don’t know how to keep their hands to themselves *shakes head*… The Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein has been accused for sexually harassing a lot of women in the last 30 years! He has forced himself on many actresses like Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow, just to name a few. He’s even made offers to boost some women’s careers if they accepted his sexual advances. What do you think of this?
So we had another playlist this week with a mixture of new, old and pre-released songs. There were songs from Giggs’ new mixtape Wamp 2 Dem on there. Really like the songs Peligro and Liguo.
Wretch 32 has finally dropped his latest album FR32. A lot of people couldn’t wait for his album to drop as seen by Instagram posts with #FR32 in the captions. The songs His and Hers and Good Morning definitely caught my attention.
If you want to find out what’s been going on in the UK lately, just listen to Dave’s song Question Time. He rapped about the Syrian war, the unresolved Grenfell Tower incident and many more questionable things. He’s very aware about what’s going on for someone of his age. He’s only 19 years old!!
I can go on for ages and talk about each song on the playlist but why don’t you just click HERE to give it a listen. Hope you won’t mind our taste in music lol.
