Status London | Episode 1 Now LIVE

*8 Entrepreneurs, 1 City, 1 Dream: **#Make it Happen!  *

 

*Be inspired by 8 upcoming Black British Entrepreneurs as they chase their dreams to make it BIG in the entertainment industry.*

 

 

Status London, the highly anticipated new reality series is now officially live on YouTube. The aspirational show which follows a group of London based entertainment entrepreneurs includes the UK’s first Ciroc Boy, one of the baddest female DJs (ever!), an upcoming comedian and radio presenters from the UK's biggest urban radio stations and hopes to inspire youths by taking them behind the scenes of their daily grind.  In the first day of it’s launch the show has already received over 1k views and support via social media from industry influencers and fans alike has been immense. 

 

Filmed in London, the exciting new web series follows the lives of 8 upcoming entrepreneurs from the UK's entertainment scene - each with their own ideal of success and achievement; with one shared dream - to make it happen. The cast features four of London's hottest upcoming female talents; internationally acclaimed DJ Melody Kane (Supermalt, Nike Town), radio host Amanda Star, national radio personality and DJ, Jade Avia, and dating coach and company Director, Siobhan Copland.  The male cast line-up includes; Mr Play – first UK Cîroc boy and one of the UK’s top promoters/DJ; boxer and personal trainer Sebastian Eubank (son of retired double world champion boxer, Chris Eubank), celebrity make-up artist and photographer Mr Gorgeous, and comedian/Actor, Travis Jay

 

 

Producer, Sade Salami (owner of Fresh Strawberry), was motivated to create a show that would showcase the pool of talent she knew existed, but lacked genuine public representation.   Sade commented, “I think it’s important to show three dimensional characters on screen and creating a YouTube series was the best way to explore this notion without being constrained to conventional ideals or labels.”

 

Status London attempts to challenge the negative portrayals in mainstream shows in its depiction of ordinary young Black Londoners pursuing extraordinary things – showing the real London. Each episode explores different social themes through the narration of cast members in real life scenarios from foundations and the meaning of identity, to relationships and 'the struggle' as experienced on their journeys.    

 

Welcome to the life of a Dream Chaser. This is Status London.

Waist Deep - Trailer

Tyrese Gibson stars in this action-fueled crime thriller about an ex-con whose life takes a deadly turn when his son is kidnapped. Meagan Good, Larenz Tate and The Game co-star. Look out for our interview coming with Meagan Good.

The Purge

This was another movie that I was quite keen to see after watching the trailer for it. First thoughts were that this would definitely be an interesting watch. Finally got to watch it the other night and I must say, by the end of the film I was highly disappointed.

The plot of the film is basically that in 2022 the United States of America is now a crime free and generally peaceful nation of people, who for a 12 hour period one night a year are allowed to fullfill their most depraved and twisted desires which generally include murder and torture.

As the film progressed closer and closer to the end, the more predictable the film became. I’m the kind of person that likes to be kept on my toes and I feel like this film failed dramatically.

To all the people who end up not seeing this one, all I can say is.. You actually didn't miss much!

Kix-Factor: 5/10

After Earth - Will & Jaden Smith

After much anticipation about seeing this movie I finally got my
chance. After Earth starring Will Smith and son Jaden, is a futuristic
fantasy adventure about a father and son who are the only survivors when
their spaceship is damaged in an asteroid storm and crash lands on a highly
evolved planet Earth. The naive and emotionally scared son soon realises
not only that his dads shoes are allot harder to walk in than he thought,
but that fear is a choice.

The storyline was pretty good with just the right amount of special
effects. Only disappointing factor about this film is that it maybe didn't
go on for as long as it could/should have.

KixFactor: 8/10
