“One difference between poetry and lyrics is that lyrics sort of fade into the background. They fade on the page and live on the stage when set to music.”
Stephen Sondheim

Born Jesse Chibikem Folarin Winston to an engineer father (who is also a Preacher) and a Mother who has Education chiseled into her core.

Jessay is a New school Afro Urban Independent Artist who resides in Nigeria but has an inclination to sending good vibes word-wide, with his version of “good music” .

Though he may tend to fuse Raggae, Highlife and Pop into his sound, there is no doubt his cores are Hip Hop mixed up with some Afrocentric melody
With a strong penchant for good music, Jessay Started writing his own lyrics in 2005 during summer classes in junior secondary school.

Although he started with RnB, the love for Hip Hop Afro-Pop seemed to be more super seeding and the kid has gone on to master both crafts. Calling his main style ‘a perfect marriage between Hip Hop, RnB and Afro-Pop with concubines from other Genres’

Take a peep into the “Gram” and see what he has been up to.. Jesay’s Instagram page

The Eccentric Vocalist


The eccentric artist Norðir, who grew up in Siberia, is completely devoted to the contradictions of life has a great work of art out; NO HELL NO
In English, German and Russian, he reflects on paradoxical topics from different perspectives and encourages reflection.
So his trilingual music is a balancing act of irresistible pop sophistication and dreamy electronic-psychedelic landscapes.


He has already shared the stage with artists such as Get Well Soon, Kilez More, Zoot Woman and Sun Pilots solo and with his Band „Rigna Folk“, and with his projects he has been a prizewinner of the German Rock and Pop Award.

“You need mountains, long staircases don’t make good hikers.”
― Amit KalantriWealth of Words

Complete harmony can hardly be arrived at when we have constant internal turmoils stemming from grudges borne over something or even nothing special at all.

A whole lot of times grudges stem from expectations placed on someone/something and when it’s not met, we begin the resentful spout and store up that senseless carbon in our minds and hearts. Even when we say that we have forgiven the person/situation, we keep a long list of records of all the shortfalls.

We have got to limit all expectations that would end up making us breed endless stupidity inside of us.
If we minimized our expectations from others and valuables, almost nothing would be a hindering factor to our ultimate reach in life, that way we leave room for pleasant surprises and also save ourselves that feeling of being let down.

An instance is our personal relationships. A lot of relationships would surely fail because we go into it with a long list of dos, don’ts and infernal expectations that would surely lead to no fruition.

Man is not GOD, but fallible humans! and would always remain as that regardless what anyone tags to their name. THEY REMAIN NOTHING BUT FALLIABLE HUMANS. You Hear!

thus this should be virtually applied to everything that we do. Give yourself hope with every single forward step.
For instance; you and your nasty, creepy Boss in the office. Now you understand my point right?

Zero your mind down to the fact that he/she(your boss)has issues that they are dealing with on their own
…and they possibly don’t know how to be different but stick to their own status quo, which makes you a direct recipient of the heat in them.

Learn to give a big laugh inside of you when Mr Jones plays the obvious script, never get intimidated because only you know what to say for you!

Once your mind has accepted their contrary prickly nature, you go about your business as effectively as you can without letting the acid of annoyance and grudge implode inside of you.

Getting into differences with “certified shallow minds”, will only hurt you more, because the likelihood is that they may not understand, don’t care or are insensitive to your feelings.

Remember that you cannot change other people, but you can change yourself. Who knows, your balanced sense of self and disposition might actually serve as a source of inspiration for such people. Well, I someworth live in that reality.

Be You and stay so!!

…and as I stepped into the small cottage Dad calls his new home, greeted Mum and took a sit to listen to Natures’ broken record for the umpteenth time, for sure on how I was not living according to Papa’s advice on learning and international language. “Spanish or French”.. My obvious response follows;

CHARLES: Daddy, Nigeria does not give us equal playing ground with the children of our technocrats and the owners of the Nigerian economy. I have spent year passionately growing the Entrepreneur in me, regarless the odds. I am trying my best to walk/work with the little I have got to barely pass through everyday. By the way I work as an independent associate for a few online magazine and a mobile small chops startup “Speedychops”. I barely earn anything as an external agent with this young businesses. I barely get support from you as I respect the fact you are retired and work for the Church full time.

FAVOUR (kid sister); There is food in the Kichen.


FAVOUR: How do you know, you just entered.

CHARLES: Cant you see i am talking

FAVOUR: Must you always use your skill to act all the time, you are too proud.

DAD & MUM: *Goes Quite*

CHARLES: *Out of words*

Message Content ~ Right or wrong, the girl child is always in deliberate search of the “soft spot’ at all times, as she compulsively needs it to build her confidence. Her best source is her immidiate family #Celonarants!!

…and even that wondrous proclamation of “girlz arepeeple! ” is often tinged with a weird obsession over the newborn girl’s eventual pubescent development or future sexuality.

I just…can’t!
I do not heap praise upon people who hold newborn girls and proclaim their nascent understanding of female humanity.

I grieve.

Work out your misogyny in your therapist’s office. Work out your past hurts and issues with women in your internal room.

But don’t use your daughter as that space. She is not karma for fuckshit, or sent in spite of it. She is herself.

Love her as such.
