How did I meet Carol Borges? Well, it was dark smokey night in the Jazz Club. I was looking for trouble, and she found me. In all the clubs in this dang city, why did she have walk into mine? I should not have had all that Whiskey in a Teacup.
Ahhh well, it did not happen like that actually. I was sitting watching a band play, and Carol came over to say hi. I have to admit I was really impressed with Carol’s voice. She has that old jazzy flavor that has been missing in music for a while. She has the voice, she has the moves, and she has the look. I am sure she will be an infinite Star!
Below you will find some of Carol’s music, and her info on her website. Please support Carol who is a student of the music program at CITY COLLEGE of C.U.N.Y. school system.
So press play on the video and look at some images.
On September 30th, 2017, some of the music and media industry’s greats gathered to celebrate and award standout artists and professionals for contributions to the world. The star studded list included Shaggy, Tara Wallace, Maxi Priest Marcia Griffiths, Nick Perry, Dr. Dexter McKenzie and Yvette Clarke just to name a few. The night started of right with a black tie red carpet littered with beautiful women and handsome gentlemen. Even the attendees, were balling off the red carpet, and the camera men and attendants were so fresh and so clean. The night was filled with great music and a grand finally of audience members on stage doing the electric slide.
Part of the proceeds will be donated to the Afuwi Scholarship Fund.
Ok Google for more information.

How did I end up photographing METALFIER? It’s a long story. I actually met Andrew on the street in front of Webster Hall. He asked to take a picture of him and his friends after their concert. Little did he know that I was packing the 3rd eye with me that night ( My camera people, you should know that by now!). I promised Andrew I would come to one of his shows, and four years later, here I am. What great timing!!!
METALFIER is a rock metal bad cut from the old cloth of when rock-metal was actually rock-metal and not EMO mixed with RAP. The band drops heavy metal riffs that make you want headbang like you were at C.B.G.B.s. This is not your prissy hipster music. If you are coming to see METALFIER be prepared to moss, hug, and throw up some horn ear!! I myself got a heart filled choke hold and handshake all at the same time. Now that’s ROCK AND ROLL!!!!!!
This is an image blog, right? Why I am I talking? Go look at some IMAGES!!!!!!

I stumbled onto AfroPunk more than 10 years ago. Back then it was just a little gathering of punks in a basement. Ever since then, I have tried to make the event. This year was my first year back. Usually, I photograph concert artist but this year, I thought I would photograph the people that have made AfroPunk such a great event. So image blog…
Yesterday, I had the opportunity to to visit the Schomburg Center in Harlem to attend the Miss Nigeria USA pageant. Now some of you may say that I was just jealous that Nigeria won the Jollof Festival, but no, I honestly want to see some Nigerian culture. What a venue!. I have lived in Harlem and going to the Schomburg was one of my favorite pastimes. So this was an added treat.
I have to admit this was a great show! Really! A production on par with that of Broadway. The contestants did a wonderful job of not only walking in swimsuit but representing their culture, values, and personal goals. However, in the end, there could only be one. Congratulation to Miss Idara Inokon (Miss Akwa Ibom). Also, to 1st runner up Ayoyemi Ajimatanrareje ( Miss Ondo) and 2nd runner up Susan Adeyeni.
A thanks to the judges of course, Isaac Badu (CEO Badu Global), Millen Magese (Humanitarian and ex beauty queen), Ty Hunter (Celebrity stylist &a Fashion Designer), Wura Kolawole (1st runner up Miss Nigeria USA 2015), Efemena Adabamu (Media Personality &a Style Blogger), and Asumoh Enyiema (Entrepreneur).
The pageant was organized by Joy Fakhoury and Bola Marshall. Please go to Miss Nigeria USA’s website to find out more information.
