    HWTP SPORTS Talk: Guest former NFL player and entrepreneur Jovan Haye

    in Sports

    According to the NCAA, only 9 in 10,000 high school senior football players eventually play for the National Football League. Jovan Haye achieved that rare dream, despite overwhelming odds.


    Born in poverty, he immigrated to the U.S., lived in violent low-income neighborhoods, suffered abuse at home, and believed he was “a dumb kid” because of undiagnosed dyslexia and a host of dyslexia-related conditions.


    Jovan then discovered his gift for athletics. His success in team sports gave him confidence to face other challenges and to overcome his biggest obstacle of all - severe dyslexia. He became an honor roll student, graduated from Vanderbilt and went on to play for seven years in the NFL.


    Now Jovan Haye is a husband, proud father, and the owner of many successful businesses. He also has authored a book entitled "Bigger Than Me" where he tells how he accessed the power that pushed him forward and allowed him to triumph on and off the playing field.

    Independent Everything: LIVE with M2M/SMG Rap Artist ~ Ladii Blayze

    in Music

    Born March 29,1990 to Cheryl Denise Wynn and Robert Kenneth Wynn, Sr.,  Brittni C. Wynn, better known by Blayze or Ladii Blayze, has always had a passion for music even as a small child.  Interested in all different types of music from Hip-Hop to Country and R&B/Soul to Rock. Her favorite artists are 2pac, Mary J Blige, August Alsina, K Michelle, Patti LaBelle, Aretha Franklin, Kem, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Rascal Flatts, Luke Bryant, Paramore, and Evanescence…  just to name a few. Major inspirations are artists such as Mary J Blige, K Michelle, and August Alsina, because she can relate to all of these artists in certain ways.  Always putting God first and family second, her most important goal to her is becoming successful and to be able to take care of her family.  Brittni’s parents split and divorced when she was only 12 years old. This hit her in the hardest way and she turned to music as an outlet. Watching the struggle of her mother being a single parent and having to support four kids on her own, Brittni got her first job at the age of 16. Her mother is her main inspiration, along with her father and siblings, as well as her niece and four nephews. In 2012, at the young age of 22, Brittni became legally blind. This journey has not been easy for her, however she is determined to make it for her family. 


    In 2013, Ladii Blayze released her first EP, under Metal 2 Music Records. She continues to work hard and put out music and is planning to release “I Am Blayze,” the album, in March 2015.  She is an MTV.com/VH1 artist.  Currently you can find her music being played on Spotify, Beats Music, iTunes, SoundCloud, YouTube, Rdio and all of the other fine digital download and streaming sites. 


    From emotional to the mental to the inspirational, I don’t stop. I don’t break. I prosper. I soar and Fly high. For…I AM BLAYZE.

    in Music

    This young artist born and raised in detroit is extremely talented. Once was influenced and dominated by the ways of society and the negative strongholds of this world. Now he has turned a new leaf and lives ultimately for Jesus Christ. Using his multitalented abilities he is not only a lyricist but has produced and engineered alot of his songs. He is also a songwriter and his desire to serve the lord in a musical ministry is more powerful then anything he has ever wanted to do in life. With tracks such as The Truth and Dont be afraid sets the tone and gives inspiration to those young and old. Brotha Minista uses his music to inspire and to teach those.about the gospel of Jesus Christ. It informs people about the truth in a unique fashion by combining a variety of social, economical, family, and spiritual issues that are relavant in todays world. What sets him apart is his aggressive approach and how the lord allows him to paint a visual for the person who cant get a visual on there own. Brotha Ministas music is a life story and a series of events he has encountered. His experiences in life has brought him to this point to talk to everyone about Jesus because Jesus has been there for him and his wife and children through job loses, homelessness, family troubles, financial struggles, and basically in every aspect of his life. Like many people he has had bad habits from drinking to drugs, violence and etc which could have cost him his very life. Now this God fearing man wants to share with people that you can come back from any bad to worse situation with the strength of Jesus. While telling about his life, he aslo feels compelled to the stories of other people by using there story and putting himself in there position to get somewhat of a full grasp of what that person is feeling when they went through the problem or while the are going through it.
