Kojo Anim Kevin Hart

Kojo opened for Kevin Hart at Webley and in September 2018 Kevin announced backstage after a powerhouse performance at his third sold-out show at London’s O2 Arena that he would help three UK comedians by producing comedy specials for them.

He said he wanted to give back to Kojo Anim, Richard Blackwood and Slim The Comedian because they were the driving force in his success in the UK after he decided to bring his talents across the pond.

On the video posted on his Instagram page he said: ‘When I first started coming to the UK, these three guys dedicated time and energy to showing me all around basically embracing me. Not only embracing me but making me feel like I stood a chance in developing to become a fan favourite here. As time went over I kept developing, put the work in, and kept coming back. Shit shot to the roof…Kojo, Rich and Slim, who is not here. You have my word that I will be producing a comedy special for you.’

Kojo took to Twitter as a response tweeting: ‘Me and this guy go all the way back to 2007 and he has been the best thing to happen to comedy. This announcement just took everything to another level. I salute you.’

Both teams changed their coaches in summer 2013. Therefore, the match for the Super Cup was not just a struggle for the trophy, but also the next round of the legendary confrontation between Josep Guardiola and José Mourinho. And the meeting fully met all expectations.

“Chelsea” opened the scoring. As early as on 8 minute Fernando Torres scored. In the opening stages of the second half, Arjen Robben evened it up. The main time ended with the score 1-1. In the extra time both teams scored again. “Bayern” managed to equalize the score only on 120 +1 minutes. As a result, the score was 2-2.

The match went into a penalty shoot-out. The Munich side was victorious in it. All Bayern’s players converted their shots, while Romelu Lukaku was the only one to not score.

As a result, Josep Guardiola began his way at “Bayern” by winning the Super Cup. You can watch soccer matches involving this club live on the sports statistics website. Such a persistent confrontation is not always characteristic for Super Bowl matches. Therefore, the meeting between “Bayern” and “Chelsea” was a real highlight at the beginning of the European soccer season.

Why did Munich beat their opponents?

  2. The team’s chemistry. All the interactions between the players were smooth. Thanks to this, their passes were virtually without errors, inaccuracies and faults.
  3. Vivid performances from leaders. For example, Ribery. Franck scored during the game and regularly created chances for his partners. It was he who was recognized as the best player of the meeting.

Two years since the release of his ‘Intellect Is Power’ album, Chicago lyricist Intellect reminds listeners with ‘Intellectual Intelligence’ that Chicago is still an epicenter when it comes to producing superb Hip-Hop artists. Blazing a trail of his own like the city heroes that came before him, Intellect lets his versatility reflect in both hardcore slapping records for core Hip-Hop lovers and sensual mood chillers for the listener that requires a break from gritty rhymes. ‘Intellectual Intelligence’ hits all streaming platforms September 8th.
“I take the ordinary and put my own twist on it. That is what makes me stand out not to mention that my word play is elevated. Greatness is as greatness does. Dare to be great. That’s a code I live by, and I want those that listen to my music to understand that.” – Intellect
“If we are speaking on Intellect’s rap techniques, they exceed! He orchestrates seamless flows, complex rhymes, and witty punchlines.” FM Hip-Hop
“With more than a point to prove and a needle to adjust on the creativity meter, Intellect is set to disrupt the system and he plans to do so with his first task of business seen in his upcoming visual, Ephesians 6:11. “Putting on the armor of God” as the title (and verse) references, Intellect is equipped for war with his lethal lyrical delivery.” APEX Coture
“Not forced to be part of a movement that everyone is finding trendy at the moment, the Chicago native pairs cultivated lyrics of persuasion with his colorful metaphors.” – Hip Hop Since 1987
“the Chicago native pairs cultivated lyrics of persuasion with his colorful metaphors that he’s becoming recognizable for and does so with ease.”Hip Hop Magazine
