Desi B (Bhavdeep Rehal) will be on The Junction’s “You got Mail” segment, we will be playing “Reel Queen No I Mean” produced by Desi B. You can feel the dancehall vibe, so for you dancehall fans you are in for a real treat! The instrumentals were “jacked” from Sikh Knowledge, who gave Desi B his blessing. We know how important it is to have someone to look up to, Desi B finds his inspiration and connects to music, especially the beats Sikh Knowledge puts out.

Desi B is proud of his Indian-African heritage, he was born in the UK and currently resides in Canada. He was brought up in a loving Sikh/Hindu household, which taught him no matter what you believe in, you should always show respect for other people. He considers himself an experimenter of Urban Themes, a dreamer, a Poet with something to say, something of a psychological Painter who wants to use every color on the emotional spectrum to make a lyric.

The Triple Threat – Raj Singh

Raj Singh, another Californian artist ready to take off. He holds the title of DJ, singer and producer. He’s the CEO of Busta Entertainment, but I’m hoping he will shy away from the party promotion scene and establish himself as an artist. He’s worked with folks like Dr. Zeus, Sharmila and Amrinder Gill – just to name a few. According to Raj, he wants to produce a fresh sound and vibe to put California on the map. That’s a lot for one man to take, but if he can juggle these three titles under his belt, he’ll be a force to be reckon with.

On facebook, I saw the countdown to Tiger Jatt’s video teaser to his new single Highway. He’s been vibing from coast-to-coast for the past couple of years. His track highway gives you an essence, a taste of what the luxurious fast life is like. In his Official Full Music Video, TJ embezzles the glamorous life spotted with a Bentley, Phantom, and Lambargini. While sipping on Champagne & his favorite Hennessey. While TJ most certainly has a club banger, he’s spotted in the VIP with his crew and the most lavish of them all, gorgeous ladies. Don’t keep us in suspense for long Tiger Jatt, bring it on!

Tiger Jeet Singh raises of $60,000 dollars in food and toys



Picture 27

We should follow Tiger Jeet Singh foundation example when it comes to giving all year around, normally we tend to just focus on holiday giving and forget there other 330+ days a year.

Toronto, ON – Wrestling Legend Tiger Jeet Singh, his son (former WWE Superstar) Tiger Ali Singh, and their dear friend Troy Newton, spearheaded The Tiger Jeet Singh Foundation’s efforts in raising a record setting $60,000 in food and toys as a result of Troy’s Toy Drive 2010, doubling the $30,000 raised last year.

On December 20, over 1000 supporters from across Ontario attended Troy’s Diner in Milton.  Milton restaurateur Troy Newton donated all proceeds from the luncheon to the Toy Drive, as customers opened their hearts and pockets for the less fortunate over the 6 hour fundraiser.

Tiger Jeet Singh and his son Tiger Ali Singh signed hundreds of autographs and offered the crowd numerous speeches of encouragement, as did hockey legends Walter Gretzky and Johnny Bower.

Music was provided by numerous bands including the Salvation Army Brass Quartet and Milton Choristers, in addition to a special “Christmas Around The World” performance by recording artist Prita Chhabra and bhangra dancers from the Sonay Gabroo Punjab De (SGPD) team.

On December 21, Tiger Jeet Singh and Tiger Ali Singh also visited The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) to read and provide autographs for numerous children and parents.  Accompanying the Tigers was their dear friend Troy Newton along with their respected family members.

As toys and Best Buy electronic items were distributed to the kids by Scotia Bank representatives for all the patients to use in the Hospital, Prita Chhabra sang a variety of Christmas carols for the kids.

“If it was not for the Tigers, my sister/business partner Crystal and team this would not be possible,” says Troy Newton.

“We’re very grateful to all the sponsors, and in particular our platinum supporters in Linesteel, Scotia Bank at Thompson/Main in Milton, Royal Park Homes and Best Buy Mobile at Bramalea City Centre for their support,” says Tiger Jeet Singh.

“I thank my buddy Troy for asking my father and I about one year ago to team up in organizing the toy drive and wrestlefest events, because it gave us the opportunity to bring people of different cultures and religions together for the greater good of humanity and give back to noble charities,” says Tiger Ali Singh.

This week, the Tigers and Troy’s Diner have also confirmed Saturday, June 4, 2011 as their 2nd annual “Tigerfest”, once again as part of the Milton Street Festival. The outdoor five hour wrestling extravaganza, free for the public, drew over 50,000 spectators and raised close to $35,000 for the Milton District Hospital Foundation this past June 2010.

Preity Zinta taking heat for Kings XI Punjab cricket team



Picture 21

I remember briefly, I mean BRIEFLY meeting Preity Zinta, who did a show here in the Bay Area back in 2002. She was running late and quickly came out of her limo with a couple of her costumes, frantically asking me WHERE IS THE DRESSING ROOM?! I showed her to her dressing room, she thanked me and that was that. My first impression of her that she wasn’t expecting the VIP treatment, she simply wanted a room to get ready in. Let’s face it, the backstage to the SF Cowell Palace was no VIP backstage. Pretty cold and drafty.

She love for a lot of things, especially her cricket team Kings XI Punjab. But some fans are under the assumption she makes all the players calls. A lot of the cricket fans aren’t happy with some of the players who got pick for KXIP. Preity being the pretty face of the Kings XI Punjab, has to take the heat from the angry KXIP fans.

She tweeted, “Ok guys! Cannot answer any more cricket questions! Am neither an expert nor a cricket guru ! All KXIP player selections were by the coach !” On that note, don’t go to Preity when it comes to making your bets!
