A Trip Down Memory Lane

Today the Upvillers took a trip down memory lane. This sudden bout of nostalgia that hit the Housemates hard was sparked on by the screening of a J Cole video.

The StarGamers had all gathered in the living room this early afternoon viewing a collection of hit tracks during the Channel O Music Hour. As soon as the American rapper’s video came on the Housemates’ faces lit up. “Doesn’t this just bring back memories of the first day on stage,” Keagan queried his fellow Upvillers who all nodded affirmatively. For some of the StarGamers the realisation that three months has passed by without any contact with the outside world was a bittersweet pill to swallow. “The rest of the world has probably moved on from this (video),” Kyle mused.

One other artist that got quite a rise out of the Housemates was a Mary J Blige as soon as the R&B queen’s music video popped up on the screen the tired looking StarGamers had a sudden jolt of energy from the excitement of seeing her. Mary J was one of the many celebrity ONE Campaign ambassadors that sent shout outs to the Housemates last week. But Mary J’s was the one that touched the Upvillers the most because she mentioned each of the Housemates by name and it is quite clear that is an experience that these StarGamers will never forget.
