Imagine trying to figure out your IQ level and not really getting the results, going to the extent of paying online people for them to rate your brain power. If you really want to know your brain capacity and IQ, take a shower and go to bed. Try analysing how complex your dreams are, how deep and integrated there really go every night that will definitely tell you something
Karter – ‘Black Champ Sounds’
Out of all of these choices, none had anywhere near the anticipation as Karter's latest effort, which represents the first commercial Extended-play installment of his highly-coveted BCS series. This go round, Karter goes the iTunes (and Spotify) route for BCS, which features 5-tracks with appearances from Terry, Gangsta Lis (GEM Founder) and DJ Slimmy and Dhara Mileh as producers respectively. He dedicated a mug-piece to his late friend Banderos'. Not surprisingly, the H-Town rapper’s vibe interest, also contributes to the long-awaited release. The EP is set to be released digitally and broadcast-launched on May 8, next month.
The biggest take from BCS will be whether or not he sends any direct responses to detractors (which the Hip-Hop world is sure to know soon enough). Nonetheless, Karter's proper re-entry to music post is well-needed to rebuild his momentum, hopefully, 2021 will see an official follow-up to the critically-acclaimed Black Excellency.
Daniel 2:28 ... "But there is a God in heaven"
- Life on earth is more like a quest, we're are all trynna find our purpose in life. l for one had given up on this life because I was busy chasing the wrong stuff until l was shown the light. The reason you're always crying or the reason why it seems as if everything you touch falls apart is not because you're jinxed nooo, it's because we're busy following the things that were not meant for us. The greatest achievements in life start when u start recognizing your maker, that way each and every step you take is guided by him such that you will never go astray....

Remember Malcolm X refused to be called by a slave surname. …………Let us start with the name. The day that I met a black American executive, who told me that my name is not Jacob, it is a slave name, is the day that made me realise how important it is to be an African. I have an identity, a name with a meaning, l have a heritage and I have a history to maintain. The reason being, he had to further ask me to give my real name which is Kudzayi, and he said Ku….. what? Because he just could not pronounce it but he said to me it sounds like “cool guy”.
I had to further explain how I got the name Jacob which was my grand-father’s name. The fact is I was born in Rhodesia, a then British colony. During that era to be baptised one had to have a Christian name and for one to be registered by the Birth registrar one of your names had to be English, which was a process of colonising the mind.
During our conversation he went further to say, you should be proud of your African heritage. We were brought to America as slaves. The first thing that the slave masters did was take away my identity by changing my fore-fathers names which they could not pronounce. That was the end of who we were and the end of being an African. To see a black African proud of using the name Jacob, a Christian, colonial name which has no meaning to you and your family is a traversy.
Following the killing of Geroge Floyd the African is now searching for an identity and the first port of call is for a true African to reflect and change his slave and colonial name, than to demand for removal of a statue that gave you your new identity.
For a true African who knows his history, heritage, identity and origin, to be called or to give their child the names John, James, George, Thomas, Robert etc should now be a thing of the past. Give your child the name kudzayi, Tendai, Siyaphi, Nothando, Dumisani, Velaphi, Hlupo, etc.
We have African parents from Zimbabwe, Nigeria, Zambia and other African countries who have emigrated to the USA, Europe, Australia and Asia that now believe their child should not speak or learn their native language which they consider to be inferior and backwards. This is shameful and disgraceful considering that they still want to be associated with their homelands, which they discredit when given an opportunity.
To be a true African and be recognised as an African, All Black Africans around the world should now change their names to be African names. We need to change from the mindset of our great grand fathers and mothers who were made to believe that having English names is prestigious and for your child not to speak your native language is complete and utterly nonsensical and stupid .
Your African name, heritage and identity should be your pride.
