    Thinking Aloud with Ayo in Conversation with Eric Obuh aka Vocal Slender

    in Lifestyle

    Last year I interviewed Eric Obuh aka Vocal Slender the young man who became quite popular after he featured in the 2010 BBC documentary Welcome to Lagos...


    He was a scavenger who had a dream of becoming an Afrobeats star.
    I found his story fascinating! Especially after finding out how well read he was.... from books he had found while scavenging the Lagos dumps.


    He has given back to his community by setting up a foundation “GHETTO LOVE EMPOWERMENT FOUNDATION” which focuses on putting together a skill acquisition programme to empower the people of Ajegunle (Lagos' most resourceful slum) community.


    He also won $25k from the Google Africa Connected programme which showcases everyday success stories being made with the help of Google. 


    He has come a long way since being on the dumps....His story is truly inspiring.

    in Radio

    Ellacey Selah was born to Willie and Patty Hunter October 15, 1970.  She attended Parks Refuge C.O.G.I.C.  with her mother and father.  When she was old enough, she joined the “Sunshine Band” which led to her development and love of the arts.  Her father was also a great singer and constantly sang around the house, dropping seeds into the aspiring vocalist and thespian.  After her parents split up, her mother married Johnny Blane and he moved them to Dallas, TX where she began to spread her wings and grow in the music field.  Inspired by her mother, Ellacey took an interest in playing the piano.  Her mother showed her the basics and she took it from there, learning everything by ear.  She also showed an interest in playing the drums by watching her sister, Sheila Hunter; play in the middle school band.  Music was always around her and in her mind.  She developed great creativity skills by playing, singing and acting at local churches in the DFW Metroplex.   Even though most of the things she learned came from her gospel roots, Ellacey took the time to take courses that helped to further her creativity.  Since only being known locally to sing gospel, Ellacey chose to move out of the box to see what more her talent could offer.  Her skills currently include vocal coaching, singing Jazz, gospel, musical theatre, R&B blues and rap.

    LOTL The Comfort Zone Welcomes Lindsey Webster, debuts new CD " You Change "


    NEW YORK (June 17, 2015) Do you remember that moment when you first heard Anita Baker or Sade; the effortless, sultry, and soaring vocal that captures all of your attention? Lindsey Webster’s delicate and powerful voice takes you to that place - an unabashed nod to the greats and yet 100 percent Lindsey. The Soul Songstress is proud to announce the release of her sophomore album, You Change, via Atlanta Records on July 17. The album is an eloquent collection of work showcasing Webster’s expressive vocals and uncanny talent and the two lead singles “Fool Me Once” and “Open Up” are out now and available to stream HERE. “"You Change” shows the growth we’ve made as artists since our first album; in both our songwriting and who we are as artists. From a delicate song like “Bleed”, a song about utter heartbreak, to an anthem like “I’m Strong”, we explore many facets of our songwriting and are extremely happy with the result”, states Webster. 


    In 2009, Lindsey met her partner, Keith Slattery, and started performing professionally. Together, with a band of world-class musicians, they’ve performed over 600 shows in venues including Bearsville Theater, Levon Helm Studios, Helsinki Hudson, Daryl’s House, The Falcon, The Lambs Club, Rockwood Music Hall, The Red Lion, and Groove. 


    The success of her first album and winning “Best Acoustic Song” in the Independent Music Awards caught the eye of Brian Hurst from UK’s soulandjazz.com. Hurst brought Webster to Atlanta Records, who signed her to release her second album, You Change.
