Ace Liberian entertainment blogger, Berenice Mulubah was recently at the Pdiddy hosted, Revolt Music Conference 2017 held in Miami, Florida. Her story is quite the compelling tale of determination to succeed despite odds and a great way to start your day. See story:

“From the moment I made up my mind, December of 2013, that I wanted to blog about entertainment, I have made it my business to add to the knowledge I have about the industry. From buying books on the subject, going back to school for Mass Communication, and constantly googling new information about the industry, I’ve been on it.

When I heard about P Diddy Revolt Music Conference 2017, in Miami, I had to jumped right on, even though, the price was high. You must invest in yourself and your career.

It has been four days of wealth. Getting pure knowledge about the music industry from legends and experts.

On the first day, King Combs, 21 Savage and French Montana had the room on fire. The Conference is loaded with executes from the American Music industry and artists. The highlight of the night was Miami Mayor, Philip Levine awarding P Diddy with Miami 100 years coin and French Montana. You can check out some videos from the night on my Instagram. Of course, there was the educational panels, sharing their knowledge.

Day 2: Artists, activists and writers came together to ​dialogue on how to impact change and challenge the political system​.​​​ The panel, which was brilliantly moderated by Jeff Johnson, the CEO of JIJ Communications, was comprised of ten individuals who continue to utilize their platforms with the utmost urgency and responsibility, tirelessly advocating for social justice, challenging oppression and denouncing the malevolent actions of the current administration. During the passionate dialogue, artist/activists Mysonne, Joey Bada$$ and T.I. were joined by the Rev. Shane R. Smith, President, National Action Network San Diego; Datwon Thomas, Editor in Chief, Vibe; Rob Kenner, Executive Editor, Mass Appeal; Vanessa Satten, Editor in Chief, XXL; Karen Civil, Author, Media Maven, Brand Curator; and Shaheem Reid, Host/ Writer/ Producer, REVOLT TV.

The day continued with more educational panels and ended with a Gala Dinner.

The dinner was is a beautiful celebration to honor Queen Latifah.  She received the 2017 REVOLT Icon Award.

Lauryn Hill ripped the stage at the Gala.

The conference ends today.  There is a film festival going on for the rest of the day. It has been a great experience so far.  May God presents me with opportunities to impact the Liberian Entertainment Industry with the knowledge acquired.

According to accounts from several Liberians especially in the entertainment industry, Berenice Mulubah has been criticized oftentimes for being tough but her message of ‘artiste empowerment and improvement’ has undoubtedly resonated with industry players and helped shape the Liberian Entertainment Industry.

Petite or Plus Size: Beauty is in Fitness and Carriage

September 8, 2017
Post Image

We all cannot be size 8. The age long cliche –  ‘beauty is in the eye of the beholder’ still holds true even though  our 21st century definition of beauty tilts towards being petite. Plus size women have long been bashed and shamed that many would do almost anything to be size 8.

We’ve read about models who starve themselves to remain skinny and we’ve heard of wives who said their husbands stepped out because they became plus size after having babies. Be that as it may, there are men whose sex appeal is plus size women and there are women who would only date plus size men.

A post shared by Chidinmaekile (@chidinmaekile) on

Regardless of where your preference lies in this never ending societal trend, I am strongly of the opinion that beauty is in fitness and carriage. Much more than the size of flesh anyone goes about with, how you carry it determines whether you have an appealing or unappealing look. A toned look is a function of healthy living and fitness, and all sizes can acquire it. A healthy lifestyle is free of excesses.

Popular Nollywood actor and producer, Eniola Badmus, also as known as Gbogbo Bigz girl or Badosky, broke the internet yesterday as she released jaw-dropping photos of herself to celebrate her birthday. Trust me, if you’ve ever belonged to the ‘big girls are not fine school’, you would have to reconsider your conviction. I must confess I spent quite a while perusing her Instagram account and appreciating the photos. The photos were also inspirational for me to have written such an article as this after seeing them. Have a look and tell me what you think in the comments section below.
