Damon Wayans is back at ABC with new Sitcom “Let’s Stay Together”

Published

on

Damon Wayans is returning to the TV screen with a new ABC project. ABC is the same station he partnered with for the hit TV show My Wife and Kids. Damon is also teaming up with a familiar mind in Don Reo, whom was the co-creator of My Wife and Kids.

According to sources, Let’s Stay Together is being pitched as a family comedy for a new kind of family. It will star Wayans as a single father who finds out it’s hard to get rid of millennial kids, and their kids. The sitcom reportedly features a storyline that mirrors Wayans’ own life.

In 2018, it was rumored that Hollywood would not book any of the Wayans brothers for new films due to what they called “audience exhaustion”. It seems that they dominated in so often with their zany comedy that audiences supposedly weren’t showing up in the same way that they once did. Despite that pushback, Daman and his siblings have consistently showed us that it’s better to pivot than to quit.

Damon is proving that theory one more time as he is now planning to go back on the road, planning to return to the stand-up comedy stage this fall as his pilot percolates. Long considered one of the pre-eminent stage comics, Wayans for a while thought that his edgy stand-up humor might not be welcome at this PC moment. But seeing how Dave Chappelle turned that notion on its ear with his recent Netflix special changed Wayans’ mind.

Yvonne Orji Lands Book Deal For New Faith Based Advice Book “Bamboozled By Jesus”

Published

on

Yvonne Orji is a Nigerian-American actress, comedienne and writer who is best known as one of the stars of HBO’s critically acclaimed comedy series Insecure. She made her feature film debut in September of 2018 as apart of the film Universal’s Night School alongside Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish. She is also the co-host of the podcast Jesus & Jollof alongside Luvvie Ajayi.

Most recently, she landed a book deal for her new book which is a faith-based advice book titled “Bamboozled by Jesus”. In this book, she uses a modern-day Biblical blueprint to candidly and humorously share the twists and turns that led her to success—and to inspire and empower readers to live their best lives. Yvonne Orji has never shied away from being unapologetically herself, and that includes being outspoken about her faith.

 

Because of that, she is often questioned about how she navigates her career when playing roles that are sometimes polar opposite to who she is and what she believes. Yvonne doesn’t hold back with her responses to those questions. In an interview with NBC, we see her speaking up quickly but each time unashamedly holding on to her faith while explaining how she believes her faith has directed her in this pathway and how she’s currently making it work.

A distinguished stand-up comedian, Yvonne has opened for Chris Rock on various stops on his Total Blackout Tour. Yvonne is also known for her inspiring TED Talk, in which she discusses factors that make for a healthy relationship.

Todd Dulaney Sings Psalms 18 (Live at World Harvest Church)

Published

on

Todd Dulaney recently broke into spontaneous worship live at World Harvest Church. In between songs, Todd opened his Bible to Psalm 18 and began to sing the words of the verse to the music the musicians were playing. Watch what happened below!

 

 

After an injury, this former professional baseball player made the decision to use his gift of music to change lives and hasn’t looked back since. He has worked hard and had quite the journey to where he is today. Once an independent artist, now signed to E-One Gospel in Nashville with a slew of award nominations including both Stellar and Grammy awards, he seems to remain more clear than ever on his purpose.

Todd recently shared a piece of that purpose with RollingOut Magazine in March of this year saying,

“It’s important to me to do more than just sing,” Dulaney said. “This whole thing that we’re doing right now, recording in Africa, It’s a movement. It’s more than just singing music. We want people to really believe again so our songs, they’re doing more than just exciting the crowds and making people dance. We want to make sure that we are leaving people with an experience, a full experience so they can go back home and think and say, “man, am I really believing God or am I singing the songs or bopping my head?’ So that was really important that we put that testimony in there so we can really spark faith.”

Dee-1 is reaching new heights in his career! His most recent win was performing at the Staples Center in LA! He first made the surprise announcement on instagram while getting his fans involved asking them to help choose which songs he should perform. The announcement came shortly after he shared his concerns on instagram about having anxiety concerning his coming tour which is now only a couple weeks away. 

Dee-1’s transparency about anxiety did take some of his fans by surprise, but overall they welcomed his honesty and replied only with high praise and excitement regarding the coming tour!

Some might think that Dee-1’s recent nervousness could be coming from the fact that he is now a fully independent artist. But, according to Dee, while he may experience nerves from time to time when touring, he continues to express his excitement to continue the pathway of running solo without a label which seems to be offering him more flexibility and options within his career. In addition to opening up for the LA Clippers game, Dee-1 recently facilitated an interview with the mayor of New Orleans where he had the chance to speak with him about Education, Criminal Justice Reform and Healthcare. Dee-1 is the first hip hop artist in New Orleans to interview the governor.
 

 
“We need our voice and perspective heard and respected in politics. We have an important election coming up, and I feel like Hip Hop needs to be represented” says Dee-1.
 
Dee-1 is using his platform to encourage those within the Hip Hop community to show up to the polls when it’s time.
 

It’s clear that Dee-1 is focused on more than just packed out shows. He really wants to continue to make a difference in his community and in our culture as a whole. He’s going hard in purpose and it’s working for him! This fall, he has performed on stage at the Black Music Honors during a tribute to Speech and Arrested Development (a pioneer of positive rap in hip hop culture). He toured his hometown bringing Opioid awareness to students and the community. He announced a giveaway in partnership with SallieMae offering over 200,000 for one lucky student. He also appeared on Hot 97 and has been seen rubbing arms with a number of high profile figures in entertainment.
 
He seems to be living out the lyrics to one of his most popular song: “I know God’s got a plan for me. I don’t know what it is, I’m just out here trying to handle my biz.”
 


 
In 2016, Dee spoke to JET Magazine about his purpose:
 
“I definitely see myself as more of a teacher than a rapper. I feel like a revolutionary. I know that I’m going against the grain, and I’m attempting to eradicate a lot of things that have been wrong with society and the music industry through my walk and my musical catalog. I’m actually using rap to get my message out there.”
 
Dee-1 is continuing the legacy of positive hip hop in both Christian and non-Christian areas and along with a lot of hard work, he’s having fun along the way! “Whatever it is you love to do in life, just do it!” says, Dee-1.  “Do it for the love. Do it before you get paid for it. Perfect your craft and get great at it! With God in the mix and you’re doing something you’re talented to do, you’ll get there!”
