HAKKI’S: A CHAMPION OF GOLD HEART

Published

on

2020 has been one of the toughest years. From pandemics to all time unemployment highs, there is no doubt that this year will have its downturns forever edged in history. For most, this year has meant survival for friends and family. Yet, it seems that a simple pizza chef is taking things further, reaching beyond his own circle of people to help strangers in dire need.

Hakki Akdeniz, owner of Champion Pizza, is one of the hidden gens who has been helping feed the homeless during a year where they were hit the hardest. From hurricane to pandemic, https://www.instagram.com/p/CHudcMtFioW/?igshid=1d18mt8t7oe2a nothing seems to stop this man from being charitable to his greatest capabilities. Of his impressive charitable acts including delivering food to the homeless via food trucks during a recent charity event in New York City. That is just one event of many more events which he has already done and continues to do. Hakki Akdeniz recently began a new company, Hakki’s Pizza, which is now selling frozen pizza at supermarkets. 

Hakki Akdeniz does not limit himself to giving out food to the homeless. He also gives out money and clothes, some of which as seen on social media even tend to be his own clothes. https://www.instagram.com/p/CJPQ0zxFkt0/?igshid=kfh8296lhjyy

I asked Hakki what his inspiration was for giving out so much, especially during times of scarcity where giving is the hardest thing. He said “You know, I really just want to give back. I once was homeless too, and I know what it’s like to be there. That’s why I feel the need to help those in need and spread love and kindness to everyone regardless of who they are. My goal is to inspire others to do the same. I believe that if we can all work together more, then anything will be possible. Just look at me, no one would’ve thought back when I was homeless that I would’ve created such a large brand. This is why we need to give back. We need to give everyone an equal chance to chase opportunities which they were never able to get because of their situation.”

I asked Hakki Akdeniz how he was able to spend so much on charitable deeds, assuming he must make a lot of money. I also asked how he expects the average person to do such charitable deeds if they don’t earn such large amounts of money. Hakki Akdeniz answered “I really don’t have as much money as people think. But, the one thing I believe in most is the cycle of life. When I give this money to the homeless, good things always come back. But I don’t do it for good things, I do it to genuinely help them. I am saying this because I want to encourage more people to do more to help. Anything can be done, it doesn’t have to be money. It can be as simple as giving advice to the homeless or some other simple actions. Charity does not always have to be glamorous, as it can be as simple as spreading kind words to the homeless and showing them the same respect you would show anyone else.”

A champion of gold heart, Hakki Akdeniz uses pizza and compassion to help the homeless and serves as an inspiration to others to do the same. To keep up with Hakki, you can follow him in Instagram @hakkiakdenizz

DJ Jeff Duran: Creates Amazing Mixes And Is Becoming a Force To Be Reckoned With

Published

on

He’s remixed for Future and Wu-Tang Clan, he’s worked with NBA YoungBoy and released countless mixtapes on his multiple youtube channels. Despite being a DJ for over a decade, DJ Jeff Duran is finally becoming known as a force to be reckoned with. An unconventional and always controversial approach to his art has sometimes overshadowed his show-stealing sets and work as both a DJ and producer. His long awaited album ‘If You Can’t Dazzle Em With Brilliance’ is Due for release on June 24, an album in which Duran can be heard flexing his alter egos as a stand up comedian and original musician. 

When did you start DJing – and what or who were your early passions and influences? 

Before you were born. Listen, all that you need to know is I am the greatest DJ of all time. I can go away ten years, come back and I am better than ever. My mother is 80 and looks 40, I am blessed. I had sex with a 20 year old this morning, I am just getting started. I think DJ’s are untalented narcissists who think they are better than the artists they play. I am a fan of hip hop and hard rock and always have been. My Youtube channel just got taken down again, I had over a million subscribers. I’ll start another one soon or maybe not. 

What do you personally consider to be the highlight in your artistic career? 

Before Covid and this Pandemic shit I held a Drake night and had one of the best fuck fests of my life. The OVO owl made an appearance and I felt that I pulled off something special. Every time I work it’s a highlight. When you can express yourself and the people understand that, in another far away place, it’s really fantastic. That’s the best part of doing this. 

What is it about DJing, compared to, say, producing or performing stand up, that makes it interesting for you? 

When I produce, I really try to serve as inspiration for the artist I work with. I never tell them what or how to do anything. NBA YoungBoy doesn’t need some middle aged tweaker telling him how to record or make art. I try to challenge them to embrace the melody, and make music that five years from now they will still want to perform. I may be the greatest living DJ, but i am also the greatest living fan of music. I play more specific artists, mainstream shit I like; LIl Baby,Pooh Shiesty, Durk. It’s a rock and roll attitude, Playboi Carti is like what Marilyn Manson was when I was coming up and it looks like he’s having fun. At least hip hop

is interesting. Did Durk sacrifice King Von for mega stardom? Kodak Black talking shit to someone? I’m enthralled. 

There’s so much music out there,What makes you decide to play a particular record during one of your sets? Is there a criteria for selecting what to play at a gig 

I don’t prepare, just like in the studio and on stage it’s the vibe at the time. I just wait to see the audience, the club and then I get an idea for a playlist. When we do live shows I find the best DJ in the city and have them represent the “DJ Jeff Duran” brand with they’re best set, that way it’s fresh and never routine. 

What’s your opinion on the importance of roots, traditions, respecting originals and sources? 

I can say it, some of those old school traditions and roots have grown tired. Anything before Kanye is hard for me to listen to now unless it’s old heavy metal. Hip Hop is about evolution and what’s next. Old ass Eminem, a multi billionaire still rapping about himself is unlistenable and embarrassing to me. The younger rappers today have way more street cred than Tupac or these so called legends ever did. The top tier is making way more money too, which is inspiring to young people. Rap actually inspires kids now to build investment portfolios and make money. When I was coming up a lot of the top rappers came off as bums and rapped in dead end scenarios that were hard to relate to beyond fantasy. Coming up now is the time with the only blemish on hip hop and its culture is Female rap in my opinion. These entitled only fans/ instagram hookers with the same fat ass Fendi bag talking out their twats is absolute garbage. Some of these girls are getting enormous too, just because you are as big as a horse doesn’t make you a Megan The Stallion. Roots should make someone want to forge ahead with something interesting without having to finesse notalgia. 

In which way are you actively trying to create an experience that is more than just stringing together a few excellent records? 

I like to have some tension and then some time to rest. If it’s going straight from the bass to the top non-stop, it’s too much. Even on artist tapes, those that pay attention I have my own way of presenting a particular artist that involves non hits and mostly unreleased. The unreleased music is my specialty and has brought me the most hate. If I don’t leak something I am an asshole, if I do then I must die according to some. My theme nights for Lil Wayne and Drake are a lot of fun even if it’s been virtual. Those are experiences and hopefully now they have loosened things up we will have a ton more to come. 

What type of comedy do you do ? Do you observe situations and create comedy or can you create comedy just in your head ? 

I have always spoke for the outlaw or outcast when performing stand up. It’s where I can free with no boundaries. My observations are based on absurdity and my experiences living

most of my life on the edge. It’s not for everybody but it’s more personal, seeing if i can come up with an hour of comedy that people can feel in 2022. 

Finally, what art form would you want to be recognized the most for when all is said and done. 

Remember I am a fan first. People have to appreciate how I approach these art forms as a fan and my take on it. If you hear my music you may quickly say it sounds like two cats fucking, I hope to at least earn your respect in my attempt at creating something amazing regardless of the outcome. I want to be recognized as the guy artistically who had the balls to attempt something different, challenge myself and perhaps the audience in the process.

The Story Behind Uk’s Biggest U18s Event Brand, Shutdown Events

The Story Behind Uk’s Biggest U18s Event Brand, Shutdown Events 

Most successful stories, projects, mission or vision begins with little ideas. These ideas are the first resources that forerunners usually possess. The success or failure of any project is determined by how effective the ideas are worked upon.

This notion is also peculiar to Chris Sarchet Bell, the brainchild behind the establishment of Shutdown Events. Like other successful entrepreneurs and founders, Chris had to nurture his dream of owning one of the biggest brands in the UK’s entertainment industry.

The Shutdown Events idea came into full form upon its creation in 2014, from the city of Burnley. This brand came as a follow up to the success Chris Bell and his group had achieved with their initial event company, Grenade, which created over 18 events.

The Big Idea:

The plan kicked off when Chris Sarchet decided to take the nightlife experience to the younger market, with the aim of targeting the young audience, gaining their trust and helping them prepare for the adult nightlife party. He and his team ensured that the main goal of this idea, that is educating young adults that they can still experience lots of fun without necessarily consuming intoxicating substances.

“We chose to attempt to handle the more youthful market to have the option to get revenue from a youthful crowd…at the point when they grew up, we would have the option to hand them off to our older age group brand, Grenade”.

The Journey:

Fortunately, the idea has turned out to be successful. In a short period of time, Shutdown Events gained wide acceptance in the Burnley area, as attendees were drawn in from in and out of town. Within six months, the brand had branched into a second area and with a growing reputation, they followed it up with the addition of four towns in just eight months.

At this point, the buzz about Shutdown’s success had already begun, and they turned into the biggest U18s driving brand in the United Kingdom. This reputation has been recognized nationwide as Chris and his team go on tour from one end of the country to the other, creating events and occasions. Also, the events usually host top celebrities and superstars, as it is an opportunity to work together as a unified entertainment industry.

“We probably unite the greatest names in the music and entertainment business…we continue to get demands from an ever-increasing number of customers requesting that we go to a town close to them”.

Achieving the dream:

It is often said that good things don’t come easily. This was also the case for Chris and his team when they were actualizing these ideas. It came with a lot of obstacles and challenges. For instance, it was difficult trying to get the local council to trust that these events will be safe for underage kids to attend. Also, parents and guardians were not willing at first to release their wards at first.

These issues were understandable because of the nature of the events and the time in which they were being organized. As a result, Chris and his team usually ensure that the Shutdown Events were completely safe and harm-free.

When asked what his biggest threat was, Chris replied by saying, “Any issues that happened on the night of the events to stop the events altogether. This is why we run such a tight ship and airport-like security on entry”
