Your right not to listen to the haters,continue to do your thing Bangs and good luck for the future.

He has been hailed as the UK's No1 Rapper

He is said to be 'the best in the game' aka the best rapper in the UK and I certainly agree. He is South Sudanese and he goes by the name of Joe Black

Joe Black is the people's MC,he is a popular and highly established rapper in the UK Underground scene but with talent such as his he is destined for world wide acclaim.

He has a growing fan base thanks to his freestyles,one of which aired on the Hip Hop Mix Show on BBC Radio 1xtra,which is the national radio station for Black Music in the UK.

Good luck with the rest of the year Joe.

Putting our hope into music

Hello Readers


In South Sudanese culture music is more than lyrics and a beat,it is used to rejoice,mourn and best of all unite the community.Therefore it has become a important part of our culture.

Today I have featured artists that share this ethic.

Yaba is a talented artist who uses positive thinking to spread the message of unity to the South Sudanese Community.

He is known worldwide for his song entitled 'Time to Vote',which is regarded as the soundtrack to the referendum process.

Independence here we come

Hello Readers

This is an official post to mark the start of my count down to
Saturday 9th July 2011,which will see the establishment of the world's newest country South Sudan.

Which will secede Sudan,after over 50 years of struggle and two civil wars.The region will become a country known as  the Republic of South Sudan.

It's no secret that South Sudan is a work in progress,with the media reporting daily articles of a negative outcome.Therefore the negatives outweighs the positives.
So I have started 'The Only Project' to help spread the positivity and hope which myself and other members of the South Sudanese Community have gained from the forthcoming independence .

I hope you will enjoy my posts
