Nelson Mandela‘s fight for human rights in South Africa and overall spirit left a lasting impression on the world. The “Father of the Nation” has received many accolades in his life, but none surpass the impact of Mandela’s work. His fight against racism, poverty and inequality in South Africa, earned him the very prestigious title, but not before leading him to his notorious arrest and 27-year imprisonment in 1962. Mandela fought a myriad of terrorist accusations, and has gone on to receive over 250 awards in past four decades including the Nobel Peace Prize, being made an honorary Companion of the Order of Canada, and receiving his own ”Mandela Day” this past year on July 18.
Nelson Mandela, who lived until the age of 95, has earned such a regal reputation, but the South African visionary was a multi-faceted man who showed many different personality traits to the varied people he has touched in his lifetime.
Passing December 5, 2013, Nelson Mandela leaves behind his third wife, Graça Machel of 15 years, 3 daughters Makaziwe, Zindzi, and Zenani Mandela, and a host of grand children, great-grandchildren, and close family and friends. Celebrities from all walks of life have expressed their condolences for the family’s loss as well as their own.
Coincidentally Mandela’s daughters, Zindzi Mandela and Zenani Mandela found out about their father’s death at the England premiere of Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom. The movie was the top grossing debut in South Africa this past weekend surpassing Hunger Games – Catching Fire, World War Z, The Wolverine and Hangover 3.
Our prayers, hearts, and condolences go out to the Mandela family; biological and international.

R&B powerhouse Leona Lewis is speaking out against vulgar pop stars Rihanna and Miley Cyrus, and its not about the music.
According to various sources, Lewis explains, “I have a lot of respect for them, but because I have nieces and I’ve seen my six-year-old goddaughter doing dance moves that she shouldn’t, it does not impress me and I tell her to stop.”
While most skeptics believe the two portray a raunchy bad-girl image for the cameras, but even Lewis insists that it’s more than a publicity stunt.
“I’ve met them both and that is them – they’re not putting on an act and no one is telling them what to do.”
Rih rih and Miley might chuck the finger up to the haters as they dip out of the country in their private jets, but in reality, there are young girls and women who look to these young women as trendsetters. While most adults dismiss their behavior as entertainment, it does have a lasting effect on our impressionable youth.
“Being sexual and in your face is not great for girls who are quite young. It depends what environment you’re brought up in, but personally I’ve got a god-daughter and little nieces and I don’t want them to see me acting crazy and naked in my music videos.
You have to applaud Lewis for speaking out, but also take a moment to think. How many popular artists are telling girls that they don’t have to be sexy or naked or twerk on Instagram just to be successful or loved? How many people are speaking out from a place of genuine concern, not just for laughs? How many parents are actually sitting their children down to explain why it’s unacceptable?
How do you feel about Leona Lewis’ comment and the impression that today’s pop and hip hop stars have on the youth?

In an interview with VLADTV, rapper Maino gives more insight into his confrontation with Atlanta rapper Trinidad James after the “All Gold Everything” rapper claimed that NY didn’t represent its own artists during a Converse event in Brooklyn, and added that the South runs New York music, which set the “Let it Fly” rapper off. Maino then explains what led to their phone conversation that was leaked online, and he reveals if he was the one who released the phone call online.
“I was tweeting from a very comedic place,” he says of the Tweet about ‘brushing James’ teeth’ and ‘being his Huckleberry’. But feels Trinidad has not been forthright in his responses. “He went on Instagram and said ‘Maino wanna shoot me.’ Shooting? That’s a bit much. That’s for the police though. The hip-hop boys are on Twitter. That’s for them so when he do come they ain’t gonna let me on the block. That’s [his] tactic. ‘I’mma scream loud enough so y’all can hear me.’”
Maino reiterated that he was not simply being a bully and that he was looking for respect for his city, not for himself. When asked if he leaked the phone conversation between the two of them he didn’t deny it directly, but sought to clarify his position.
“I don’t think that guy is a bad guy and I think he’s smart,” he continues. “But I think he went to a place that he shouldn’t have and I wish he’d manned up a little bit more and apologized to my city. That doesn’t happen anywhere else. Am I bugging? Men don’t do that, artists don’t do that, giving 20 minute lectures about a city then asking ‘What you wanna do?…”
“We know we got our issues. We got issues in our city. Who the f*ck is you to get on a New York City stage and tell us what our issue are and then ask us what we wanna do about it?”
