Earlier this year, I was invited by Donald Russell to their head quarters in Inverurie, Aberdeen. For those who aren’t sure, Donald Russell is one of the biggest mail order butcheries in the UK and having been in business for over 40 years- their product range keeps expanding, offering meat, poultry, fish, game, ready meals, pastas, the lot. Though they sell plenty of stock online, they also provide for some of the top hotels around the world; so if you’ve stayed in any luxury hotels, it’s likely you would have eaten some of their products. Check out what happened when the guys over at Donald Russell invited us down to see what goes on in the world of butchery.
Cast your mind back to November 2012, I went on a secret mission on behalf of Heineken to Crack the Case- under code name 00Opoku some also called me Opoku, Ernest Opoku. *sigh* If there is going to be a black James Bond, holla! I’ll even do my own stunts.. Anywho, as part of the mission I was sent to get myself measured for a bespoke suit which was crafted by Roberto Revilla London. I briefly wrote about the experience last year and mentioned that I would write about the outcome in due course. You’re about to read the outcome after the break.
Last year Juliyaa dropped her debut EP ‘Stars & Dragons’ and on bank holiday Monday (1st April 2013) she’s headlining a live showcase for the project at Richmix where she’ll be joined by special guests: Wilson, Nick Brewer, Dionne Reid and DJ Ace of BBC 1xtra! Today I rock up at the rehearsal studios where she’s rehearsing with a full live band, backing vocalists and a couple violinists to boot! We discuss her debut EP and her upcoming live show as well as her upbringing in a half Welsh and half Ghanaian household.
