More Goals for Chelsea, Thanks to Batshuayi!

Image
Yesterday, Chelsea got their winning vibe back after they settled their opponents on a 4-2 win making fans and football lovers entertained with quality football and engaging play.



Watford had the game at some point and had Chelsea fans in the middle of winning or losing but the much needed goal of Batshuayi gave everyone hope of winning and in due shades of goal scoring they added one more before Batshuayi made it 4 and sealed the game to a well deserved victory.

More goals for Chelsea indeed and a 3 points rise is well deserving for the defending Champions to look at bagging the title once more.

The ' Ice ' is Back !

Image
An artiste of his own definition with classic hits to his name such as Oleku, Aboki, Whiskey, Boss and more makes this economy of artistry beautiful and admirable. 
But what has caught my attention is his cut in Major Lazer’s new joint, Particula where he lead a very irresistible chorus that gave the song the vibe it needed and demanded the attention it ought to have from listening ears. 


He undoubtedly complimented the hardwork of Nasty C and Jidenna's verses which equally contributed to the success of the song aside the beat, the put together by the producer and the entire vibes of the song. 
Ice Prince is a genius and this song proves once more the capacity of his craft and the deliverables he would ignite if given the right cut and beat to make a hit. 
The Ice is back ! 

What should we be expecting in Season 8?

Image
Well, I came across Game of Thrones some years ago but never did I l pay attention till the middle of 2017 when the buzz for Season 7 started kicking off. I was caught up in the vibes and I thought why not see this series so many people are talking about.

Starting out with Season 1 I was caught up with a lot of questions and thoughts. The story line was beautifully engaging keeping me wandering what the next course of action will be or what could be in the head of the writer of that episode but I knew it had all the elements of great artistry at play.



Seasons 2-6 left me spell bounded. So much excitement and drama making you least expect the turn out of scenes but with much attention you would see so much in so little but explaining to anyone the richness of the series won't serve them the best till they take their time and look into.


Season 8 promises to be magical and filled with amazing episodes and I hope it does serves us well and worth our wait eventually.
