This lovely February morning, we have a new single from Protoje, tilted “Bout Noon”. 2018 has started off with a continuation of the highly appreciated 2017 trend, persistent amazing music releases. I really think he should have dropped this song before Valentine’s Day ’cause it’s for you […]
This song isn’t new but the music video is, the single was released last year, April. Here is the official music video for “Skin Toned” by Royal Blu and Runkus. These young artistes refreshingly bring up racism, and how hard it is for black people to survive in this world.
The song was produced by JLL, and the music video was directed by Tim Foresta and Thandi Sebe, and produced by Daniel Krause.
“We all come from God…”

Due to some unforeseen circumstances that came up in my personal life, 876Lover will be taking a short break. During this period I’ll be posting a minimum of one article per week. I will try to do more but at this time it seems to be highly unlikely. The break will be from today until March 15th. I’m really sorry everyone, I hope you can understand.
Thank you all for your continued support!

Nyam & Scram! – Restaurant Week 2017
Restaurant Week in Jamaica is an annual event I look forward to, in one week there are a plethora of restaurants having discounted prices. They fall under categories such as Tasty, Savoury, Delectable, and Epicurean; which offers 3 course meals in different price ranges. As well as Morning Bites and Nyam & Scram, which offers discounts on breakfast combos and lunch combos respectively.
Last restaurant week, I went to nyam and scram some lunch at Raffaele’s Gourmet Pizzeria and Grill. They had really nice options, and each meal came with a bowl of cream of pumpkin soup for appetizer and a slice of cake for dessert. It was an overcast day with the sun playing hide and seek, the weather was lovely to me, it was warm with a little bit of breeze. We sat at an outdoor table with a huge patio umbrella.
We didn’t have our meals the conventional way because the soup wasn’t ready when we had arrived. So, we ordered the main course first. I had the shrimp burger and fries. The shrimp burger patty didn’t look how I expected. It came with tarter sauce and the usual condiments, lettuce and tomatoes; while the fries were unexpectedly seasoned fries. The burger tasted like a fish burger from the brand Reggae Jammin’ but cooked properly; it tasted good, nothing exceptional, but good nonetheless.
My date had the chicken parmesan on linguine pasta with marinara sauce, served with garlic bread. When I saw his meal I was envious, the melted parmesan cheese looked amazing. As customary with my dates, we tried some of each other’s food, it tasted as great as it looked. When we finished our meals the cream of pumpkin soup was ready to be served, so we had it. That was the highlight of the lunch for me, the soup tasted spectacular. Having it after the burger filled me to capacity, I was stuffed. You should know, I still ate the cake we got for dessert, the slice wasn’t big, it seemed to be the cherry on top.
I should have picked a fancier main course but lesson learnt, pick something basic, it will taste basic. I had a good time at Raffaele’s, even though my choice wasn’t the best; my date’s food tasted good and the cream of pumpkin soup wowed my taste buds. I will be going back for sure, I want to try one of their pizzas next time.
