Why is this DOTW titled ‘Smarties & Hedgehogs?Well…
Here are some of my latest discoveries:
Jon Bellion: I recently discovered this lovely musician with a message. Jonathan Bellion is an American singer, songwriter, producer and rapper. He is currently signed to Visionary Music Group and Capitol Records. He also provided vocals for the 2015 EDM song “Beautiful Now” by Zedd as well as writing the chorus to The Monster by Rihanna ft. Eminem. His debut album The Human Condition was released on June 10, 2016. It debuted at number 5 on the US Billboard 200.
My favorite song on his album thus far is titled “Hand Of God”. You can listen to it HERE
Classic Burger at GET Arena: I’ve been a consistent customer at GET arena for many years now, and I pretty much order the same thing every time. Based on recent recommendation to try their Classic Burger, I did! And I can confidently say it’s the best burger I’ve had in Lagos, with the exception of my brother’s home made burger (that’s on a completely different level). But yes, the burger at GET is juicy and super-tasty. I recommend it 100%.
LSMK: Let’s just say this guy is pretty amazing.
The Art Of Asking: Amanda Palmer, singer and one half of the band, Dresden Dolls, gives an inspirational talk,“The art of asking“, about how to engage with the audience and making music pay – but without making the fans do so. Palmer tells the audience of her journey from street performer to her Kickstarter campaign to get funding her music by simply saying to fans: please donate what you want. “I don’t see these things as risk. I see them as trust. Now, the online tools to make the exchange as easy and as instinctive as the street, they’re getting there. But the perfect tools aren’t going to help us if we can’t face each other and give and receive fearlessly, but, more important, to ask without shame,” she said during the talk in February 2013.
ArtFido: Art Fido is the number 1 online Art sales platform in the world. They share some pretty amazing artwork from various parts of the world. You should find them on Instagram @artfido
I hope you enjoy my DOTW!
