‘My Life’

first_imgIt happened eight years ago when Winston Garyzon Hannibal Jackson, known on stage as ‘Skoolboy Wizzy’, saw a blister on his left foot. Then, he didn’t know it was Gouwa, an ‘African sign’ that swells the leg and causes a burning sensation from the inside. He landed in a sick bush for a year. Sadly, this caused him to miss out on travelling to the United States for the first time.A few days after noticing the blister, his leg had swollen so bad that he listened to advice and sought the help of a ‘country doctor’ to work on his leg.Still in the 12th grade at that time (2008-2009), Wizzy had no other option but to drop out of school for about six months seeking treatment in the sick bush.“This was unbearable for me,” Skoolboy Wizzy said. “I could not believe it at first that my close friend could do this to me; and up until now I still wonder why he had to hate me so much.”As God would have it, after Cavalry Chapel Mission School in Rehab community, where he attended, learned of his condition, Skoolboy Wizzy was able to graduate with his classmates at the end of the 2009 school year.“When my school accepted me, I was relieved and was able to sit the national exam and make a successful pass. Even though the situation was bad, God never let me down,” Wizzy noted.When they learned of his condition, his parents sent for him to join them in the United States for better treatment. Excited about his impending trip, Skoolboy shared his joys with some close friends. Unfortunately, the blister reappeared and he landed in the ‘sick bush’ again in early February 2010.Advised by the ‘country doctor’ not to tell anyone about his upcoming trip, Wizzy finally left for the US on March 8, 2010.In the US the leg healed without any western medicine. After registering for school, Wizzy played with Junior Leone Star FC in Delaware for a few years before matriculating to Deltech College in Wilmington, Delaware.Beset with recurring leg injuries, he decided to try his hand at music, which gave him relief during difficult times.“Because of difficult moments and continued injuries, I was forced to drop out of school and started working. In 2013, I decided to use my music talents, which I discovered when I was back home in Liberia to express my feelings. But I found it difficult knowing not where to begin. It was when I met Hip-Co Artists RawPekin and Tru Storry, they encouraged me to keep working hard,” Wizzy recalled.After a long while working with RawPekin and Tru Storry, he was able to release his first single “My Life” on September 18, 2014. The song is about the things he had to go through from childhood to adulthood.From “My Life” to his popular hit single, “EMOJI,” which put him on par with other Liberian stars based in the US, Skoolboy Wizzy on hoping to continue making waves in the Liberian music scene worldwide. “When the song was released and went viral, I said to myself that ‘the time has come for you become a true star.’ From that moment until now, I have always been in the circle of top Liberian stars in the states,” said Skoolboy Wizzy with a smile.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Impasse over panchayat polls in West Bengal continues

first_imgThere was no end in sight to the impasse over the panchayat polls in West Bengal with the hearing in the Calcutta High Court remaining inconclusive on Tuesday. The hearing will continue on Wednesday before Justice Subrata Talukdar. During the hearing, Trinamool Congress MP Kalyan Banerjee said the petition by the Opposition parties was not maintainable. Mr. Banerjee cited a number of orders of the Supreme Court stating that the High Court cannot intervene in an election process after the dates of the polls have been announced. The Trinamool Congress (TMC) representative also said the rights of candidates who are contesting the polls as TMC nominees should also be upheld by holding the elections in time.Justice Talukdar said the Supreme Court in an order on April 9 had asked that grievances of the people who had approached the court be addressed. He pointed out that after extending the nomination process on April 9 for a day the State Election Commission reversed the order the very next day. The judge observed that he was concerned over whatever happened between April 9 and April 10 and the role of the State Election Commission on the issue.On Tuesday, the Division Bench of the Calcutta High Court comprising Justices Biswanath Somadder and Arinadam Mukherjee said it “did not wish to interfere with the order passed by the single bench.” On April 12, Justice Talukdar issued a stay on the poll process after which the TMC and the Commission approached the Division Bench. The elections to the three-tier panchayats in 20 districts of the State have been scheduled in three phases on May 1, 3 and 5. Political parties in the Opposition have alleged that the TMC had prevented their candidates from filing nomination papers between April 2 and April 9. Experts are of the opinion that considering that only two weeks are left for the polls, and the withdrawal process not being completed it is practically difficult to conduct the polls as per schedule.last_img read more

Ashton Agar set for recall as Australia hint at twin spin for Mirpur

first_imgAshton Agar looks set to play his first cricket Test in four years against Bangladesh on Sunday after coach Darren Lehmann suggested Australia would go with two spinners for the series opener in Mirpur.The 23-year-old left-arm finger spinner made his Test debut as a teenager in the 2013 Ashes series, starring more with bat than ball in two matches against England that remain his only experience of the longest form of the game.With Steven O’Keefe having been dropped despite a brilliant tour of India earlier this year, however, Agar is in the driving seat to get the nod ahead of uncapped leg-spinner Mitchell Swepson in a twin spin attack with Nathan Lyon.The tourists were robbed of their only practice match by the Dhaka rain on Monday, which Lehmann said made it even less likely he would radically overhaul his team from that which finished the tour of India in March.”We obviously haven’t played too much, so we’re fairly settled in where we want to go,” he told reporters in the Bangladesh capital.”That decision will be made later, once we start to have a look at the test wicket and the conditions. Most likely, I think we’ll play two spinners.”Agar toured India with Australia earlier this year but never got a chance to play as his fellow left-armer O’Keefe took 19 wickets at an average of 23.26, including 12 in the first test at Pune.O’Keefe, 32, was fined A$20,000 ($15,838) for “highly inappropriate behaviour” towards a female cricketer while drunk at an award ceremony in April, however, and was dumped for the Bangladesh tour in favour of the younger man.advertisement”Steven was excellent over there but we’ve decided to go with Ashton,” Lehmann said.”He’s got the all-round game and hopefully he’ll take it to the next level so if we wanted to play three quicks he could bat up the order, for example. He gives us a lot of flexibility in that way.”Young Swepson is a good prospect as a leg-spinner…it’s really tight between all the spinners but Ashton himself has batted really well, he’s a gun fielder and he’s got his length right with the ball.”The first Test starts on Sunday with the second in Chittagong scheduled from September 4-8.last_img read more
