If you find her majesty the Queen’s Christmas message a little dry and boring, flip the channel and tune in to Mr. Khan. He’s giving out gifts to folks at the mall, cooking up a “chili” christmas meal and serenading the ladies. Mr. Khan is played by BBC Radio personality Adil Ray.

With over millions of people suffering from the floods in Pakistan, all of us can contribute a little something. Britian’s Boxer Amir Khan was over in Pakistan and speaks about what he saw and why it’s important to donate. Folks living in the UK can visit www.dec.co.uk or you can text GIVE to 70707  to donate £5

“My family comes from Pakistan so I really feel for the 14 million people affected. The DEC is doing a great job but we really need the public to donate more money as day by day it’s getting worse and worse. Text the word ‘GIVE’ to 70707 or visit www.dec.org.uk.” stated Khan.

Courtney Love turns to Deepak Chopra?

You are probably thinking this is a strange combo… but if you follow Courtney Love on twitter, she has been reported going on these rants and raves…but I feel like she is taking on a new role of getting in touch with her spiritual side. Or trying to find a calm and balance in her life, it hasn’t been easy for her… listening to her album “Noboby’s Daughter” you sense a real triumph but a painful journey. According to her tweets, Courtney learned about Deepak through Russell Simmons, she wants to go on one of Deepak’s retreats. Another person she wants as a mentor is Tony Robbins… All the best to you Courtney, I personally loved her in the movie “Man on the Moon” (Andy Kaufman bio pic – starring Jim Carrey)

@DeepakChopra when is your next retreat, @uncleRUSH is love itself and i hear great things about you from friend wld take the time,for you,

@CourtneyLoveUKPlease DM me so we can connect xxx


Dafa Ho Ja staying strong for 19 weeks…

Foji Gill jolted us with “Dafa Ho Ja” which I loved the music video for this song, I would rave about it on my radio show… I loved the old school style with traditional beats. For the past 19 weeks, Dafa Ho Ja has stayed in the top 10 on the “Official Download Chart” on BBC Asian Network. The single dropped on Feb 26th, every one wanted to know… who is Foji?! I remember Bobby Friction interviewed him, when Bobby took over the Charts show on the BeeB. He’s young and has already proven he’s no “one hit wonder” in the scene. Miss Pooja was featured on the track (folks who listen to my show loved Foji vocals with Miss Pooja up in the mix). Dafa Ho Ja probably saved me one too many times, when I would constantly get bombarded with Miss Pooja request.

His new single, Bruahhh, is currently number 1 on the SimplyBhangra Charts, Foji is gearing up to launch his forth single. The single is going to be dedicated to his hero, Bhagat Singh. The music video will be shot in rural spots in Punjab, he’s definitely setting trends in the Asian music scene.

Jay Sean inspires South Asian Politicians

OR do the South Asian Politicians inspire Jay Sean? I think it’s a two way street in this matter, as we reported on Saturday, Jay Sean went to speak at a conference for the Indian American Leadership Initiative. Over six South Asians are running for Congressional seats here in the States. In his speech, Jay Sean talks about his own struggles making it into mainstream, even his own critics questioned the deal between “Cash Money” and Jay Sean. Would it turn sour like the Virgin Record deal? So far… “all izz well” Check out his speech….
