I had the pleasure of seeing Blitz’s mind-blowing directorial debut at the Pan African Film Festival a few days ago and I HAVE NOT stopped thinking about it. If you’re going to do anything on March 31, please mark your calendars and get your remotes ready- Ava DuVernay recently picked up the film for distribution through her company Array and will be releasing it worldwide on Netflix.
Last year while listening to Benji B doing his thing on Radio 1, a totally different type of track was dropped that had my ears instantly perk up. That track was called “Boofiness”, by a singer called 1010 Benja SL. As I played the shit out of that song, I went on a little mission to find out more about the song and the artist behind it. The more I explored, the more elusive the artist became. There were stories of him deleting everything he’s ever put out online and “starting fresh”, moving to NYC, then NYC, etc.
