I was so caught up with the holidays, that I completely forgot my new year message!
2016 was a trying time for the world, for so many different reasons. It’s hard to think of this next year ahead without uncertainty, but that won’t stop me from doing the work towards love and compassion.
On a personal level, 2016 blessed me with a year I couldn’t have possibly imagined. From NBA All-Star Weekend (Toronto), the JUNOS (Calgary), Summer Jam (New York/New Jersey), Caribana/OVO Fest (Toronto) and many amazing concerts in between. While 2017 is going to be hard to top, I’m still looking forward to this year ahead.
My website (for starters) is in need of a face lift and I’m really excited to start the process of re-branding in 2017! At the last quarter of 2016, I moved my focus from writing to social media management by working directly with independent concert promoter, Nightshift Entertainment. HipHopCanada has had a solid rapport with Nightshift over the years, so joining their team feels right at home.
I definitely plan to continue on with HipHopCanada as a contributor, while working with Nightshift. Event promotion is a great opportunity to branch out into different areas of the industry. It also helps that I love it! Make sure you keep yourselves update on our socials , which I’ve linked below.
Cheers to a happy and healthy 2017 from me to you.
Happy New Year!
