Pray for Beirut
As we all know a massive blast ripped through the city of Beirut killing at least 100 people and injuring at least 4000 people .The numbers are expected to go up as searches are underway for people who have been reported missing . However the people of Beirut have come together to help clean up the streets , this is very powerful to see because it shows that they still have hope . They have also started protesting demanding for answers as to why the government let this happen, as we can all imagine their lives will never be the same again. This catastrophe has left so many people vulnerable and in need of aid. The protests turned violent quickly when the military starting throwing tear gases at them. The people feel that the government is not doing enough to help the people in need and also mourning. The link below will lead you to everything you can do to help from petitions to donations.
Are all arrivals going to have to self-isolate for 14 days?
As the virus cases keep rising around the world again the government are feeling the need to take strict measures by adding more countries to the list of self-isolation after for 14 days. Belgium, the Bahamas and Andorra are new to the list and France might be on the list very soon as their numbers have risen in the last two months. France recorded per 23.4 cases per 100,000 people in the last two weeks. While Spain’s rate was 27.4 around the time it was removed the UK’s travel corridor list of countries exempt from quarantine restrictions. People are now being advised to make last minute plans instead if they do have to travel because anything can change at any time.
UK producer Preditah in fear of his life?
Last night the producer posted a few videos on his Instagram that left many people worried and concerned for his safety. He claims that he is being held against his will in Egypt and worried that his life might be in danger. In one of the clips he explains that someone close to him might have set him up and now he’s being blackmailed because he is Zambian Royalty. Let’s all hope and pray he gets back home safe.
What’s on our music release radar?
On our release radar we have My Oasis by Sam Smith ft Burna Boy. This such a very interesting collaboration that not many of us saw coming it’s like two different worlds coming together but somehow, they made it work. If you’re in the mood of some chill vibes, then this is definitely worth a listen.
We also have D-Block Europe with a new single that came out yesterday called ‘We Won’, its definitely worth a listen if you’re a fan.
