Come On Over For A Caribbean Chicken Satay
My Favorite Tropical House Singer
EVER HEARD THE TERM ‘The Blacker The Berry” ; used in a song by US singer Kendrick Lamar (2015), It's a term in the Urban Dictionary that refers to the plain old fact that the blacker the berry, the sweeter the juice'.
But what with the world not looking - the black-get-back - (another term from the urban dictionary) movement seems to have gathered pace! What with my favourite 'tropical house' singer, Mavado, a Jamaican who goes by the real name of David Constantine Brooks, was left fuming after visiting a high end Chinese eatery in the US, saying staff there treated him shabbily.
THE ONE THEY CALL MAVADO is a UK MOBO Award Winner, who has collaborated with many of the world's top urban acts including the UK’s Chipmunk (Every Gal) and state side, who with the likes of Busta Rhymes, Wyclef, Fabolous, Akon, Snoop Dogg and Jay Z to name but a few, has done more than enough to put him on the map. (And, if that wasn't enough, is featured on Drake’s album Thank Me 2016), none of which cut much ice, at Philippe Chow ‘s!
'Buzzing, so the blurb tells me with 'a glamorous clientele'’ fuming - accusing the staff there of ‘treating him 'shabbily' cos he's black’!

Can’t think what would be on the Chow’s menu that he couldn’t cook up at home! Personally, I'm down with the Chicken Satay. Caribbean style.
So I'm cooking up a Caribbean Chicken Satay!
