Weekly Music Video

Today's video is Cash Madame by Tanzanian singer Vanessa Mdee. Her full name is Vanessa Hau Mdee and she was born in Tanzania and later lived in New York, Paris and Kenya. Also known as Vee Money, she started out as an MTV VJ (there aren't so many of them these days, at least not in the UK) and was the first ever VJ in Tanzania. Her debut solo single was Closer, one of her biggest hits to date.

Vanessa's other singles include Come over, Niroge, Siri, Never Ever and Cash Madame. I think Cash Madame is her latest single. It was uploaded to YouTube in December. Vanessa is singing in English but a kind of patois, I think. Sounds similar to Jamaican English. (Swahili is one of the official languages of Tanzania along with English).

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant

Earlier this month I did a post on the new series of Teen Mom UK. At the end of of the post I mentioned that a new show had started in America called Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant. It's now due to start in the UK next week, so here's more about the programme. :)

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant is the latest in the Teen Mom franchise which started with the 2009 series 16 and Pregnant. It follows 5 girls- Ashely, Brianna, Kayla, Lexi and Jade. Their ages vary from 17 to 21.


Lexi Tatman

The clip of Lexi was the first one I saw. She's 17 and  a cheerleader from Colorado. Her baby son's father is Kyler Lopez and she split-up with him before finding out she was pregnant. When you see Lexi cheerleading while pregnant it reminds me of Farrah Abraham (from Teen Mom OG) in her 16 and Pregnant episode!

Here are Lexi's social media links:
