    Its nice to see old and young people trying to promote themselves, but bothering me is they have a full time job, but always have time to out else where...... this is a wake up that must people does on government time.......

    Wellsa nothing is wrong in trying to become a start, but i had to asked people where does he work, from what i can see hes always in town by melo moods is he a chef working there, if not government need to see it that these person who r employed by the government do there private work on there private time and not government , he music is not to bad and i see where he is trying to go all the best.

        Moo Cow your name said it all, he maybe your friend but when it come to work i dont have mercy for wrong doing............For all i know and can see he always on the street, when i found out he have a full time job i said NO WAY and hes always driving around town like a messenger, yes im always on the street im a taxi. All im saying nothing is wrong trying to fulfill your dream, but when it comes to government work it goes for all regardless of who you are until you get caught...... they would say your private work should not be done on government time and you can see this man always on the streets when he suppose to be at work.

        That why i asked and didnt proof read my message, asking if hes working for melo moods. To the singer follow your dream thats good, but keep your mind open that you work for the government full time as well. because I thought he was a messenger that always out side of government, to people that would post i dont care about the negative its the truth and i sure he knows this to.

        All the best trying to promote your music and i hope its not only positive in the music only but on the job that hired you as well, Big ups!!

      TO you callaloo you could never be in my tank, the truth hurting you and its people like you guys taking advantage of government time, your message said it all yes hes a chef there and like all the rest, well be there and see if government or private firm would have you working there for long.

      Government dont tell you not to take your lunch hour come on now whats your point, if you choose not to take it whos to blame, but yet you would leave and say i didnt have lunch so im going early wow think before you a taxi and i have been there. Who chill for hours on government time and outside are watching thats why time like these we can post on the slackers that reading this and would do better.

      Its one thing is to read words from the bible and still you have the heart to lie, come on now. Tell the truth you of a man always out on government office and time wuld catch up on you and believe nothing is wrong trying hard to reach your goals.

      All im saying is spend more time doing your government work that they are paying for, if not so asked melo moods for a job there or zrod.................

      TO you SHINE-I, positive and negative would come out, for all i can see the truth is hurting you, if it was not so why did you post back, let the bloggers blog that what it is there for. by you answering back make me do believe this is true.

      And from what i does see believe me wise up man, if this so call taxi man or whoever never post this, you would never post back. The time you spend idling put it to use and be more productive in working for the government that hire you.

    Look at a REAL MAN, and try to immitate. Do you know anything about his FULL TIME JOB, and his performance there. NO, so shut up. A lot of time we sit on the side and mind someone elses business because we have no real aim or ambition. This yound brother has nothing but respect and goes above and beyond for his community, family, job and his fans. "CAN YOU SAY THAT ABOUT YOURSELF, hater"
