Everybody in Broward

County and the surrounding

communities knows of

Top Hop or The Garden, a

restaurant and lounge located

in Lauderdale

Lakes. Recently, the long

time owner Patrick has

taken a back seat upon his

retirement. The reigns are

now in the very capable

hands of Zemroy Zimma

Lewis, a member of our

own South Florida Reggae

band Code Red . These

talented musicians play

both locally and internationally,

sometimes along

side other internationally

well known artists around

the world. This creates the

best position for this

niche spot.

This only means that Patrick

is still blessing us.

This popular talented diverse

band will bring with

them the roots reggae perspective

, as well as a

great happening spot

based in the community.

This indoor outdoor

lounge allows for many

entertainment options.

There’s great Dj’s on task

for dancing, enjoy a great

dinner from the chef on

staff, or just stroll up to

the bar and enjoy drinks

with any of the beautiful

skilled bartenders waiting

to serve you.

Kanye West made a fool out of

himself at the 2009 VMA Awards

show when he took the microphone

from Taylor Swift as she

accepted the award for Best Female

Video. Of the Year. He

spoke his mind in support of Beyonce

being the actual winner in

his mind. Little did he know that

the same industry behind Taylor

Swift was the same industry riding

on Beyonce’s coat tail to stardom.

This is an actual example of how

marketing works.

Kanye injecting himself into the

spotlight drew hate from Taylor’s

fans and supporters. He had in actuality

managed to confusingly

amplify himself among the people

who were in line with what he was

saying. At the same time, they

themselves didn't quite get it either.

In the end, he had propelled

Taylor’s career, while stabilizing

his own.

The publicity game is a beast. All

publicity is not good for a person

like Kanye who strives on attention.

His morality was staunchly

called into question. The incredible

amount of backlash he had to face

came from all types of media outlets

including tv, radio, as well as

fans on social media, etc.

Years later, Kanye and Taylor

have reconciled their differences.

He now promotes spiritual healing

through God and the church. His

widely publicized Sunday services

are a huge hit with his family,

friends, and fans. Among them are

the “A “ List celebrities that show

up tfrom time to time. They congregate

and sing hymns with Kanyes’

own amazing personal choir.

Now consider this, is Kanye practicing

his morality or using it to

publicize himself?

On John Legends’ early road to stardom he

would steadfastly write and play small gigs where

he could,. Since 1998 he had been trying to get a

record deal. One day his college roommate said,

“you should meet my cousin, Kanye. He writes

for those guys at Roc-A-Fella Records”. The rest

as say was history, a long and rather successful

one at that. Kanye and John immediately started

collaborating, with Kanye producing the beats

and John writing the lyrics. A match that proved

to propel them both into fame and fortune. Kanye

being signed to Roc-A-Fella and in the process

helping John get signed to Columbia Records in

May 2004.

Fast forward to 2018’s politically charged climate

with our bombastic Republican President Donald

Trump. Kanye spoke out on his views in support

of Trump and damagingly scorned himself in

public view. Many fans and supporters of his antics

over the years were totally lost on Kanye’s

point of view this time. This animosity spurned

hatred not just for Ye, but reached his wife Kim

and any family or friends at his side. Most distanced

themselves, which brings us back to John.

In December 2018 issue of Vantiy Fair it seemed

John was doing just that. The media understanding

John and his wife Chrissy Tiegen are anti-

Trump, with Chrissy even having twitter fights

with the president at times. As well Kim Kardashian

and Chrissy are close friends. So right

away the media perpetuated this animosity assuming

John and Kanye to be at odds. Thankfully,

John is open with his life and ready to

speak for himself and his family, stating that although

they didn’t agree politically, he loved his

friend. John couldn’t imagine but greatly sympathized

with his Kanyes’ struggle upon losing his

beloved mother the late Dr. Donda C..West, an

English professor at Atlanta Clark College.

Kanye West and his wife Kim Kardashian have

since allowed us into his ongoing pursuit of mental

health and wellness. They are currently working

on healing themselves, each other and the

world, one Sunday at a time.

To put it simply, it takes a K to keep a K

This loving couple dated multiple partners

in the past only to discover each others

lasting love. It’s like two souls who were

just made for each other ...

It is really a good thing when a man finds

his wife. He is actually receiving a gift

from God. Everyone can tell that husband

Kanye West is in love with his wife Kim

Kardashian. They are both strong family

oriented people and would do anything to

protect their family.

Kim found her partner and has found closure

in her love life. The couple continue

to be themselves, as well as there for each

other. They are both super rich and successful

at the same time raising a loving

family.

Mom and Dad are truly blessed and not

afraid thank their God for all that he has

giving them. Both through their hard work

and dedication, they manage to supersede

the critics.

The Jamaican Gov. has

passed a Bill in Parliament to

close all bank accounts that

people have not accessed in

the last 2-5 years. They are

also charging a monthly fee

on all these accounts too, so

in time too when you go to

withdraw any money you had

there, they tell you that the

account is closed because of

fee overrun. So if friends,

family members etc has

money in banks in Jamaica,

advise them to close their

accounts. The Government

has become the biggest of

scammers. By next year, all

these accounts will be closed

& the Government will

pocket their money. So in a

few months, they will find

that they have no money in

Jamaica. Make your friends

pass this on, as their mother,

father etc may have money in

Jamaica. They make it difficult

for people to draw their

money also, so they should

be prepared for this. Fitz A.

Jackson, one Member of Parliament

of the Opposition,

has been fighting against this

Bill but he was defeated. He

says if anyone has difficulty

in getting their money, they

are advised to contact him for

help. To show the level ofcorruption

- the Banks have

made no contacts with customers

with regards to their

intentions to close these accounts

or the monthly

charges they are now accumulating.

The Government

has not questioned this at all.

So greedy they are to confiscate

your hard earned money.

Note that your money is not

safe in any bank in Jamaica.

With all the Diaspora meetings

with Government members,

have ever informed of

this decision by the Government

who is in full support of

this level of scamming by the

bank? The Government will

take the lump sump at the end

of 5-7 years, while the banks

takes monthly charges.

HE EXPLAIN IN HIS OWN WORDS………...

The one thing that keeps me going is, I'm not afraid to innovate and

initiate on any new ideas that make sense, like when I started this

magazine me and my woman that I know for thirty years living in a one

bedroom rental and only have one fish one tin of milk two pounds of

corn meal, left as food and I don't know where the next meal coming

from, she has just lost her telemarketing job so I had to carry all the burden

that comes with your other half not working.

This was no problem cause your woman is your responsibility, but what

shook me most is the graphics skills I developed. Because she was not

working and I needed to save money, I took on a new skill. I had always

outsourced my graphics jobs that I got from my customers. This time, I

had to learn how I can keep the funds in house.

By this, jobs from my customers slowed down. I sat in my office waiting

to get a call from any client in regards to a poster a

flyer...something. I remembered an idea that I had about creating a

magazine to report on black owned businesses worldwide and black

entrepreneurs. I chose a picture of Burning Spear and created a front

page. I remember I took it to her and very proudly showed her. She

look at it looked at me and said “you are all over the place you need to

go get a job! “What the hell is this foolishness? you need to go get a

job!!!”

I laughed and excused myself from the room, because she just insulted

me without even knowing. I have not being employed for over thirty

years. Why do you think its time for me to do that and give up my freedom.

I laughed my ass off all the way to my office.

As soon as I sat down at my desk , I heard a knock . I quickly answered

come in, and it was Mr. Nigel Reid from next door. “Say Mr. Guzigar,

I would like some graphics done.” While he was showing me what he

wanted, his eyes caught the cover on my desk of B.O.B Magazine.

Nigel then shouted at me, “who is this? I know him!” I replied, “it’s Sir

Winston Rodney a.k.a. the Burning Spear. “What's this for?” he asked.

I told him that I'm producing a magazine called Bob, coming out next

month.

He then stated, “I need a quarter page. How much? I said $40. Nigel

said, “how much is a half page?” I stated, “$60”. He finally asked, “how

much is a full page?” And I said, “$100 early bird special.” Nigel

quickly exclaimed, “give me a full page!” He then left to his office and

immediately returned with a $100 bill.

I couldn't wait for him, to get out so I could bring the $100 I just received

from him, to my woman. She obviously didn't believe in my

initiative. I quickly ran to my old car, went straight home, handed her

the hundred and said now you can go grocery shopping at Wal-Mart.

She said, “what you did?” I said, “B.O.B Magazine is born.” She

smiled, not victorious, but like wow. I observed that because she is the

kind of woman who likes to be right all the time, if she was wrong, she

will sabotage the idea just to say she was right.

She helped with the editing for a while and I would go on with the layout

and story, until she wondered off in life to do her. Now I’m here

working on my next Album at the Hit Factory studios in Miami. The

thing is you must always have a goal to accomplish and you will find

inner peace and happiness while reaching for them.. 31

EVEN WHEN NO ONE BELIEVES IN YOU, BELIEVE IN YOUR-

SELF...DISPITE WHAT THEY PUT YOU THROUGH
