“Everything You SEE In Me And I Have Accomplished Is By The GRACE of GOD” : Denzel Washington Inspires Students

Denzel Washington told graduating students to “put God first in everything” in his commencement address at Dillard University in New Orleans on Saturday.
Denzel_Washington post

His address covered everything from motivation and discipline, to how to think about money and success, but the underlying theme was dependency on God and gratitude for what God has given you.

The two-time Academy Award-winning actor said: “Everything that you think you see in me, everything that I’ve accomplished, everything that you think I have – and I have a few things – everything I have is by the grace of God… It’s a gift.”

Washington, whose father was a Pentecostal minister, admitted that 40 years ago he was failing at college, when someone gave him a prophecy that he would travel the world and speak to millions.

“I’ve kept God in my life and it’s kept me humble,” Washington added. “I didn’t always stick with him, but he always stuck with me. So stick with him in everything you do.”

His advice to the graduates included giving them permission to “fail big,” and encouraging them to take chances without being afraid to fail.

“Don’t be afraid to think outside the box,” he said. “Don’t be afraid to fail big, to dream big. But remember, dreams without goals are just dreams, and they ultimately fuel disappointment. So have dreams, but have goals.”

He also said that successful people work hard and so they should learn to be disciplined and consistent.

And he spoke about how to think about money, too. “I don’t care how much money you make, you can’t take it with you. The Egyptians tried it… they got robbed. It’s not how much you have, it’s what you do with what you have.”

Instead of finding joy in wealth, he said that joy and success was to be found in helping others.

Concluding with an exhortation reminiscent of a Pentecostal preacher, he said: “I pray that you put your slippers way under the bed tonight, so that in the morning, you have to get on your knees to reach them. And while you’re down there, say thank you for grace, thank you for mercy… thank you for wisdom… thank you for parents, thank you for love … thank you for peace, thank you for prosperity.

“Say thank you in advance for what is already yours. That’s one of the reasons I am where I am today. True desire in the heart for anything good is God’s proof to you sent beforehand to indicate that it’s yours already.”

The End Of Brazil ?: Neymar Ruled Out Of WorldCup After Back Bone Injury

Brazil superstar Neymar will miss the remainder of the World Cup with a broken bone in his back.

neymar injury - reuters

The 22-year-old, who had scored four times to lead his country to the quarter-finals, was carried off on a stretcher in the closing stages of Friday’s 2-1 win over Colombia and taken to hospital.

And team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar told local media in Brazil that Neymar will not kick another ball at the finals, expecting his recovery period to be at least four weeks.

Bittersweet: The elation at the victory was soon dampened as news filtered through of Neymar's injury

‘It’s not serious in the sense that it doesn’t need surgery, but he’ll need to immobilize it to recover,’ he told SportTV. ‘Unfortunately, he’s not going to be able to play.


‘The exact time (to play again) can be four to six weeks, but it is too early to confirm this. Let’s wait for other tests. This is the first diagnosis we had. Initially, we know he will not be able to play.’


Neymar flew back to Rio de Janeiro from Fortaleza with the rest of his team-mates following the match and was then transported by ambulance to the team’s training base at Teresopolis.

Complaints: Defender Marcelo gesticulates as his team's star man lies prone on the ground in Fortaleza


The Barcelona forward had been struggling in the build-up to the all-South American clash with thigh and knee strains but was passed fit to start.


But he was carried off three minutes from the end after Juan Zuniga’s knee landed in his lower back leaving him in tears.


Zuniga said: ‘It was a normal move. I never meant to hurt a player. I was on the field, playing for the shirt from my country, not without the intent to injure. I was just defending my shirt.’


Brazil manager Luiz Felipe Soclari, speaking before Lasmar’s interview, said: ‘I don’t think he’ll be able to play in the next match.

(Open Letter) : “I Am Concerned About The High Intake Of Naija Music In Our Radio Stations” DJ Moz Shares

DJ Moz post

International music that is South African and Nigerian Music has really taken over the airplay in local radio stations in Kenya and one of the pioneers of  Kenyan gospel Deejays, DJ Moz has come to shed some light towards this. DJ Moz who is the founder of K-krew believes that as Kenyans we have to protect our content from the high influx of outside content  on some of our radio stations.

Read his open letter and comment
“I love music and I appreciate music from all around. I love listening to the sounds and what different cultures appreciate. However, as a gatekeeper, I feel the need to protect our music industry and help it grow to greater heights. I must give it up to our brothers and sisters from Naija for crossing their boundaries to many African countries and beyond.

As for Kenya, I am concerned about the influx and high intake of Naija music in some of our radio stations and the little uptake of local content. What are we saying to our artists and producers? Their music is below par?

The quality is bad? Or the local market appreciates music from beyond our borders more than our own local content? How will we grow this industry and make it a livelihood for our musicians if we Dont embrace them more and push their music? I love what I see in the US, UK, Naija, SA and other African countries.

They have embraced their own and their people are living off their music. We need to get there. As DJs, radio and TV stations, we need to be intentional on pushing for more high quality local content as we balance with international music. And to our local artists, we will not settle for mediocrity as we push for more of your content. We will demand for quality from you. We love you and we will help you live off your gift. Peace.”
