I had the bitter-sweet pleasure of tackling the lovely England football striker and acquaintance Jermain Defoe for a quick shot – Being the star and gentleman that he is, he cheerily agreed, in substitution for a Wrigley’s chewing gum. I ended up substituting two gums, one with jermain and the other, with his cousin who stood in as the photographer – On an ‘off ‘ side note, his cousin is also a journalist making award-winning strikes within sports journalism – If you don’t already know his name – You soon will.
Back to the pitch – Never did I think gum could be a good bargaining tool , so note to self and you too – when in a sticky situation – have your gum at the ready to tackle your way through successfully, take a shot, and bang – it’s a goal.
I also had a little catch up with British lyricist Kano , who I interviewed for Lime magazine back in October 2010 and fellow counterpart and actor Bashy – who I will be talking to for The Jam section of Posh Yardie, about his lead role in the upcoming film The Man Inside.
For all the Fashionista’s eager to know – The dress I am wearing is from Asos – Was originally £140 – bought on sale for a ridiculous £25 – That’s a fashionably game, set and match right?
