Bugzy puts Manny on The Map

Hey I’m Afia Kufuor, 1 of 3 of the new interns on the ‘Where it Begins Scheme’! Here’s my first blog:

Mancunian born and bred Bugzy Malone held a listening party for his new EP ‘King of the North’ at Relentless on Denmark Street.

On Day 2 of our internship Miriam and I were lucky enough to attend the launch party as we were added to the very exclusive guestlist by the absolute legend that is Hermeet Chadha.

On entry guests were able to choose from a variety of Caribbean dishes provided by Dub Plates Kitchen. This included curry goat, stewed chicken or salmon with rice, plantain and coleslaw. Thumbs up to whoever’s idea that was.

It was love at first sight when I was served boneless curry goat within just 10 minutes of arriving… and from that moment I just knew it was going to be an excellent night.

The next eye catching feature was the impressive cake made by AB cakes. It was literally a life sized version of Bugzy’s upper body, replicating the ‘King of the North’ EP cover.

The night itself was hosted by Rude Kid and guests were able to hear the album for the first time and gain an insight about the production process of each song. I can confidently say that you guys are in for a treat when the EP is made available on Friday 14th July.

Lucy’s Weeks 4 +5: R1 Academy & 1/1Xtra Storie…

Oh, just me and Dev hanging out, you know how it is….

Hey team, are we really over half way through already…? Gulp. 

Last week I got the chance to go back to Devon to be part of the Radio 1 Academy. Not only was I helping out, I got to be part of the panel for ‘A Day in the Life of Radio 1′ hosted by Dev, talking about my role and answering questions from the the audience. I also got to interview my mate Craig David. WHAT- HOW – WHY who knows but it was a blast. My article for the Academy on Craig David will be up on the website soon.

I’ve also been working on Radio 1 and 1Xtra Stories – I’ve been sitting in on meetings about upcoming projects, learning a bit about filming and been thinking of potential ideas for documentaries.

I also had time to pop in to Toddla T’s show and got to meet Jillionaire of Major Lazer fame. Safe to say there was a party in the studio – BIG carnival vibes.

The interns have got some exciting things in the pipe line so keep your eyes peeled! (That is such a weird saying isn’t it?)

Over and out for now,

Lucy
