Singing from the heart

There’s a fine line between ego and surrenderance in a song to captivate it’s essence. 

I hate a lot of my performances retrospectively; hence. And some, l’ve come to love …’

Maybe ego is strong. Knowledge, wisdom, understanding play a myriad of truths in a song.

– Anthony Everest

Figured the love of money is the problem with the world today. People: Did u get paid 4 that? Me: ‘Love is priceless’.

For me. There’s just something about focusing even when all hell is breaking loose. The Williams sister’s epitomize this well. By their truths you shall know them. Not just by their fruits. Anyone can steal fruits. Unlike truths!

Being liked by everyone ..’

Being liked 󰀀 by every one is so over rated and un-realistic. It won’t be living. Live your life and fcuk your haters who wish upon a star ..’


My AnR used to say to me. ‘FCUK EVERY ONE ELSE’. I guess he was saying take care of your interests. My mum said the same always. Self first. Others last. I hated those two idealogies. 

However, they are bang on retrospectively. People are inherently selfish. The naturally take, and take, and take, till you are out; and gone. It’s sad 😥 but true. Very few are exceptions to the rule and are  rare Jewels, to find. I learned this – first hand 🙋. 

I have given so much selflessly to folks over my career while the very same back 👇 stabbed; with a repeating smile 😼. Some even did it, religiously, under pretences of white ◻ Jesus, and sorts. Smh.  Now. I am done ..’ That’s the last time ..’

Of course. Be Nice, 😏, kind and helpful to those deserving and worthy of a genuine helping hand. 🙋. The rest is up to God and good karma ..’

These mofos forgot I come from good 😊 stock ..’ I have, genuine beautiful 😍 friends, amazing siblings, great uncles, aunts and cousins all over the planet. I almost forgot that part ..’

God is very much present. Satan you loose ..’ Amen. Declaring Jesus!

Now I fully understand Genesis 6:6. I’d be troubled too ..’ #MercyfulGrace #WhatGodSaid #Humans

I can only salute God for his patience with us. If I was him for a day – I’d wipe us all off and start again. But that won’t be love. Would it. Lesson there. On Love ..’

#MercyfulGrace #GodsLove #Amazing

My mother told me a beautiful story of how Joseph was sold into slavery and how he was always attacked where ever he went for a while, but every where he moved on to, he was always blessed again. I remember that story today! So comforting ..’

There’s a day I play and there’s a day I mean business ..’ 

I’m afraid, for what’s about to happen in the heavens beyond. For a miracle is imminent, slowly but sure. 

It’s a testimony of promise, covenant of word – that revelation of bond. It’ll rock the corners of the nations! 

One good soul could change lives. Brethren. Regardless. Don’t be dissuaded by haters and negative ❎ sorts. God keeps the record and scores ..’ Fear 😱 him alone who can kill both flesh and spirit, unlike they ..’ God Is Love 💓. My love burns their hate assunder ..’

Don’t forget me. Don’t pass me by.

With Love 


I holistically believe creativity through art truly creates a sense of well being and a portal for great art to flourish. This holistic approach gives its users and creators a sense of freedom of self expression and interpretation :: giving rise to a new meaning to life. Thus, everyone benefits innately, deeply, greatly beyond any medical jargon, farsse, labels or medication – on end!


“Manifesting a positive thought creatively; is empowering and liberating within. I’m not your physician. I’m just saying :: this is another school of thought, of an artiste, using art to get through the pain, to get through another day, of broken thoughts and endless possibilities”.


To be able to capture the human essence through music, photography, painting, writing and etc – can be very literal to some, but to a many few who understand the, vibrations, sensations and feelings derived; on a closer look, with a different view – this can be very rewarding and life saving in many cases. Music has saved me from falling over the edge many times. Especially – the inspirational ones – that I’ve come up with.

It’s almost as if a part of me is let out to objectify and remind me when that part of me is dying on the inside again.

Not as straight forward as it seems, yet; can be a very powerful tool to keep you alive, well, and functioning. Need I say more. Keep it moving! And do the best you can while you can – no matter how little or brittle you feel. Push for your best; even if it takes you a life time. Nothing great was ever born out of an easy struggle. Some one laid down the hard graft and the foundation.

Quality rules over quantity any day of the week. More so, this is your story now – so tell it well. Love has no agenda. The only calendar; Is time. “When you realise – the same people who call you crazy, are the same people driving you crazy; you will begin to understand”.

But when they do – I take a picture. My friend died of breast cancer recently- unexpectedly in 2014. It’s the most surreal, teary, experience :: I suffered ever – recently. Take a picture. Frame that. Now, close it, or open it, in your mind – from time to time. See how that makes you feel.

Yes, life is crazy. Some people, yet handle it better than some. This observation is only critical when it becomes pivotal. Love has a limitless capacity to love again even when it hurts. One thing I know – Love is kind ::That’s just love in its glorious flaws. It’s just what we adore about it door to door. Love is simply hard. Behind, is every door mat; every one took it apart, piece by piece – and came thru one. Don’t even deny it. If you think I’m crazy, then you’re just as crazy as me; cuz it takes one to know one!

‘I remember – I remember when I lost my mind – something special about that day ..’ Gnarls Barkley ..’

But :: With ‘Love’ – Keep it moving.

Wanna Fly

I wanna fly like a bird and go every where I can. High as I can. Soar as I can; before night fall.

Men of Evil

“When people are doing evil around you, and you watch them do it with a smile in company, if you think they will not turn around, and do the same to you, one day, you are the biggest fool ever!” – Àrèmúorin – Anthony Everest

Could not help but think and thank my lucky stars for getting me out of that one. Sitting at a table, where people were not responding when I was talking to them. I mean, money means f**k all when it gives you license to be merciless, twisted and full of pure evil to another fellow human being. How could you possibly sleep at night.

This is stuff that goes down in a movie theatre, on a screen – except that it was happening to me in real life. This is a real world you don’t want to be a part of. It goes to be said – ‘Not Everyone Who Is With You Is For You’ :: Take great notes ..’ A sheep that keeps company with a dog will eat feces. Goes without say!

Every day I pray – I draw closer the one thing I love most, finding sweet release without cause for alarms. It’s where I thrive honestly, individually knowing truly how I’ve been blessed far beyond the world around me. Many try to understand what a miracle it is to have this peace that money wont buy.

Some search for it dark and blue – till days turn grey and never young again. I’m at peace knowing my motto to life is Live, Love and be Happy. No one can take that from you – only if you let them in – to destroy you inner most sacred bond with self. I choose love*

Was speaking to an old friend, much wiser and wealthier friend on the eve of my birthday, trying to invite her over. We chatted for a while and She said –

“I sat in my big garden in my big house, watching the sunset, knowing I have everything I want – but, something was still missing. If I had billions and billions the feeling would still be the same”.

God Is Love* Now to think of it again – I’m not so sure my friend is that much for wiser than I – when we balance this equation out. For most of her life – toy boys have lived off her wealth and she has never seemed to be in control of her own happiness. What kind of life is that …’

Following Your Dreams

There are some people, I just don’t have the time of the day, for, anymore …

Not because I am better than them, but just because my mind works differently – now a days. I have no time for backstabbing liars; greedy grabbing people, and certainly, I have no time for two-faced people, who thrive off hurting other people, to score points. Good luck with it ..’

These people are nothing but narcissistic wannabe controllers. Freaks, with no depth. Often, bitter, and twisted. Their reality is far blurred from reality. Grandeur delusions, is, the only world; they live in. Enviers of anything good they could never obtain. Hater’s of lovers, they don’t understand. Bitter tongues of twisted truths they turn to lies. Sad, but true. They are dead, yet walking around with their eyes wide shut. Yet, they wonder why! What goes up must come down. You see, when people have become aliens :: watch patiently, just how their star burns out when it comes crashing. Hopefully, you’d be kind again, to be used to demonstrate what love can do! There’s an old saying by Whitney Houston – I’ll never forget.

“If your long and distant objective is worthy of a long road, don’t try getting there by short cut’s that transgress the rights of others”. – Whitney Houston (RIP)

I guess that’s just self explanatory – then! My mother told me something – before :: It went over my head, until she said it the second time, yesterday – that’s when it sunk ..’ Noted*.  I’ve decided to un-share that part of the conversation. It’s personal! However –

Haters have a job to do – Tyrese Gibson

So, you do what you have to do. The earth won’t stop spinning; because of them and the sun won’t stop rising too ..’ Even if you gave them the moon, and all stars, they will still demand for the sun – and still question the galaxies they’ve never heard off. I’m done with them. Around these folks, if you can’t wollow in their sloth, vomit and depraved shenanigans, you are not – authentic to them. I rather not. I choose to be happy because I have Love*. The price of happiness is freedom let no demon put a tag on it. My door is always open to anyone who wants to connect with open arms on a meaningful level with depth; through unconditioned lovings. Like I said before –

Don’t think about all their hatefulness. Think about all your *Great-Full-Ness*

Anthony Everest and Friends



To be loved is always. Not for a day or two. Only you, can do that for yourself – when you know your worth. No air of graces need be given to command self respect. Just do it!

My mother told me something – before :: It went over my head. Until she said it the second time, yesterday – that’s when it sunk ..’ Noted* ::


Don’t think about all their hatefulness. Think about all your *Great-Full-Ness* :: Next :: ::

I hear music and there is nothing playing ..’
It sounds like a beautiful symphony
If only I could lay my head next to yours
To hear what I hear …’

Every time the enemy challenges you,
that’s your moment to testify. To rise, to shine,
to take a stand, to declare, to affirm, to uphold,
to be recharged, to be re inspired, to be called,
to be accounted, to be fortified, to be strength and
an emblem – that if Love* is for you; who can
reverberatingly – be against you!

And these are days of our minds ..’
