8 entrepreneurs, 1 city, 1 goal to: Make it Happen!
It's always exciting to see entrepreneurs (both up and coming and established) and go-getters, get together to make something happen for themselves and that's exactly we see in this new reality series ‘Status London’.
With hopes to inspire youths by taking them behind the scenes of their daily grind, ‘Status London’ follows eight London based entertainment entrepreneurs in the new aspirational show, who all share the same dream - to ‘make it happen’.
The cast features four of London's hottest upcoming female talents; internationally acclaimed DJ Melody Kane (Supermalt, Nike Town), radio host Amanda Star, national radio personality and DJ, Jade Avia, and dating coach and company Director, Siobhan Copland. The male cast line-up includes; Mr Play – first UK Cîroc boy and one of the UK’s top promoters/DJ; boxer and personal trainer Sebastian Eubank (son of retired double world champion boxer, Chris Eubank), celebrity make-up artist and photographer Mr Gorgeous, and comedian/Actor, Travis Jay.
Producer, Sade Salami (owner of Fresh Strawberry), was motivated to create a show that would showcase the pool of talent she knew existed, but lacked genuine public representation. Sade commented, “I think it’s important to show three dimensional characters on screen and creating a YouTube series was the best way to explore this notion without being constrained to conventional ideals or labels.”
‘Status London’ attempts to challenge the negative portrayals in mainstream shows in its depiction of ordinary young Black Londoners pursuing extraordinary things – showing the real London. Each episode explores different social themes through the narration of cast members in real life scenarios from foundations and the meaning of identity, to relationships as experienced on their journeys.
I already love the show and so are fans as ‘Status London’ has gained over 23,000 combined hits on YouTube. Watch as: DJ Melody Kane, Amanda Star, Jade Avia, Siobhan Coplan, Mr Play, Sebastian Eubank, Mr Gorgeous and Travis Jay take on London in ‘Status London’.
