Miss LIV



Who would have thought that on one the most rainiest of days it turned out to be one of my best days………

-Miss, LIV


About a month and a half ago I planned for so many things in my life, starting with my personal life and my career goals. Many may not know that I have been struggling and have come against much adversity during this process. In such a short time I went through a lot of changes within myself and with circumstances and situations I have encountered. I found out who was really for me and who was against me. I found out that those who I can truly count on aren’t many, but that’s okay. I rather have a small circle and or a few friends, than a crowd of folk who just want to be around me just for personal gain or other personal motives.


I found myself giving more than I was receiving and slowly I was losing the woman who I’ve found almost two years ago and her name is Miss, LIV  


I learned that the more you give the more people will gladly take. In the process of being so ambitious who I am not only as a person but who I am as Miss, LIV was disappearing.  I started to focus on too much of what other people wanted from me and I forgot who I was doing this all for and why I was doing it. When I needed help or asked for assistance It was told to me that my concern(s) weren’t  important to them and I was dismissed. A few people helped where they could and I appreciated it very much and there where those who either ignored me or just simply told me they couldn’t help when I knew they could. I had everything planned out for my photo shoot, I ordered some beautiful dresses and they failed to arrive, so I had to reschedule the shoot. My last resort was to beat the streets to find a suitable outfit to wear and calling a few friends to see if I could rent a piece or two. 

I was investing into myself building my blog site, funding my own projects and gaining clients. All of this had become overwhelming because I was doing it all on my own. I don’t have a supportive team  like most stepping into the world of Entertainment. I don’t have friends who support or collaborate with me and that’s okay. Over the past three years  I saw with my own eyes who my true friends and family were. I never in my life seen so many people want, want, want but not willing to give anything in return. I’ve never been the one to hold her hand out and when and if I do ask it’s because I really need it or need the help in which ever way one can offer their help. Everything that I have and have gained through out this journey have come from my pocket, my ambition, my hard work and my diligence. So it did hurt me to know that when I asked for help there was none for me and there was none for Miss, LIV.



FLIRTYI don’t have pity party’s and I don’t sulk in my disappointments I have feelings and when your a woman who is alone it’s a hefty weight to carry. There are many who don’t believe in me even when they smile in my face or congratulate me, I know that they’re are not in my corner and that’s okay. I have those who are supposed to be in my life and they know who they are. Sometimes a phone call and or a text means a lot. People don’t realize that the phones work both ways and technology has made it so that it is impossible not to be able to reach someone just to say HELLO!. Giving up is never an option and I refuse to allow a circumstance, people, things etc.. hinder my growth and stop me from my pursuits.


I found her, I found her once again. I thought I lost her in the midst of her diligence,  I thought I lost her in her ambition. She the strongest woman I know yet so fragile. I found her, I found her once again. Layer by layer she is becoming she……..

Man of the House Concerts & Mikey G Presents ‘Yufi Zewdu’

Man of the House Concerts & Mikey G Presents Yufi Zewdu with the headlining artist being Hugo Tae along with opening acts James Allen and the Hazie Blu Crew Live at the Trocadero Theater  (Balcony Stage) in Philly Wednesday June 12, 2013.  Your’s truly Miss, LIV had the opportunity to sing background vocals along with Yufi and the crew for the first time. It’s been a good while that your girl has had the opportunity to sing on stage.  After sound check the crew and I gathered at a round table and waited patiently for the guests and the other performers to arrive.

 James Allen  (@jamesallenraps & @Iamjchrome) was the first act to hit the stage and get the eager crowd warmed up for Wednesday nights event. In my opinion James Allen was a “Superb MC” I loved his flow, he was rocking the heck out of that mic and the crowd loved his energy. DJ AMH (@DJ_AMH) was killing it on the 1’s and 2’s rocking the crowd with the 90’s flow. Some of the crowd was showing off their old-school dance moves being silly and having a fun time.  It was cool vibes, drinks were flowing, and camera’s where flashing. Speaking of cameras Darren Burton (@Creativi_D) photographer for HipHopSince1987 was in the building, ” I can’t wait to see those photos”,  He does a great job and I like the way he sees his art visually.

“Man of the House” HUGO TAE


The headliner  Hugo Tae (@Hugotae) “Man of the House” hit the stage while his friends and family cheered him on in the crowd. Everyone had their camera phone’s out trying to snap a picture and video of the MC. It felt like an old-school hip-hop show that evening. Good show! it was well worth the sweat and humidity I had to endure. I thank Yufi Zewdu  (@YufiZewdu) for asking me to back him up on the vocals and of course it’s always a pleasure to see my favorite band Hazie Blu do their thing on stage. I look forward to events where I get to experience real artists. Artist who put in 100 % in all that they do, deserves support not only from friends and family, but from those who know the grind and how much energy it takes to create one’s own brand.


Each artist craft is not given by man but a blessing given at birth.
