Last Wednesday, my school held a Gala & Award show. I’m a bit upset that I got there pretty much at the end of the ceremony because I was stuck in never-ending traffic :[. I won 3 awards: 2 trophies for MVP in basketball & Honor Roll/Best Class Average in Grade 11 and a certificate for my co-op program. I didn't get my moment of shine on stage but it's all good. I'll be sure to be on time next year...that's if I am nominated again, lol :D. Enjoy the flicks!
I showed love to Famous, now I’ma big up the director. Director David F. Mewa accepts nomination for his first Much Music Video Award (MMVA) for his breakout music video FAMOUS – AIN’T NO USE. Canada’s television and music industry recognizes this burgeoning director in it’s BEST HIP-HOP VIDEO category. “It is an honor to recieve my first ever nod in this category, Hip-Hop is an important part of my life.” says Mewa.
