This past Saturday, 90s Fest 2016 hit Governors Island, NYC!  Nostalgic festival-goers were transported back in time to the 1990s era with music, games and Nickelodeon-themed spectacles.  Guests posed for selfies with the Rugrats as they got slimed and played Nickelodeon classic games including:  Legends of the Hidden Temple and Double Dare.  Several famous artists from the 90's rocked out live centerstage including:  Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Sugar Ray, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Pauly Shore and Sister Hazel

The festival was a totally awesome destination for 90's junkies to dress the part!  From retro band tee's, choker necklaces to babies decked out in 90's garb, the fans really kept the 90's spirit alive in 2016!

M.I.A GETS DROPPED FROM AFROPUNK MUSIC FESTIVAL

Have You Heard Of The Artist M.I.A.?  

No worries, some of us haven’t either… you may recognise her song, "Paper Planes.

Point is, according to the upcoming AFROPUNK festival, M.I.A. is out!

Yes, the self described “multi-cultural festival,” is dropping M.I.A because the artist was busy running her mouth about Beyoncé, in an interview with Evening Standard Magazine.

M.I.A. Said, "‘It’s interesting that in America the problem you’re allowed to talk about is Black Lives Matter. It’s not a new thing to me — it’s what Lauryn Hill was saying in the 1990s, or Public Enemy in the 1980s. Is Beyoncé or Kendrick Lamar going to say Muslim Lives Matter? Or Syrian Lives Matter? Or this kid in Pakistan matters? That’s a more interesting question. And you cannot ask it on a song that’s on Apple, you cannot ask it on an American TV program, you cannot create that tag on Twitter, Michelle Obama is not going to hump you back.’

Clearly M.I.A.’s statements were going to piss someone off.   Question is who?

Initially her nasty comments to Beyoncé, Kendrick Lamar and African American community (#muslimlivesmatter) offended fans and the AFROPUNK Festival came to M.I.A’s rescue by officially stating: “M.I.A will still perform at AFROPUNK London, and there is a huge amount of UK/ global talent still to be announced. We hope that this event also brings to light the experience of black Brits, immigrants and refugees in the UK, who are continuously erased.”

Now, 3 months later AFROPUNK has decided to give her the boot! This Saturday AFROPUNK released a statement on their social media stating; “After discussing the situation with the artist and the community, a decision was agreed upon by all involved that M.I.A will no longer headline AFROPUNK London.”

Based on M.I.A.’s offensive comments to all lives, cultures and Beyoncé, we suspect she will have to do some major clean up, before she performs on this side of the pond anytime soon...  

AFROPUNK Brooklyn, is August 27-28 and you can buy tickets here.

THE WANNA loves the idea of any multi-cultural event.  Bringing people together from all races and cultures— education is the key to a more peaceful world.  

Treat others as you wish to be treated and remember #alllivesmatter 

"YA KNOW YOU WANNA!"
