Of course he addressed their beef but we advise you to watch the interview for yourself!

Artists BG Kenny Lou and Ghost Magneto are Honored For Their Good Deeds After Passing

Across the world, the sleeping giants are trying to keep the community afloat. Ever since we met Sandra Massie Hines, we continue to keep up with her hard work within the city of Houston. As The Honorary Mayor of Sunnyside, Community Outreach Service Specialist, and Activist, she contribute a large amount of her time with the community.

A post shared by Yung Tenna Tha Winna🛴💨 (@bg_kennylou) on

Kenny Lou and Ghost were collaborating at this time with their music. They were steady in the studio planning the next move.

November 27, was when these young men passed away. They were both killed in Houston in a club parking lot. This became one of the most hurtful deaths to happen in Houston this year.

All over the news and the internet, media portrayed these young men as gang members, and Gang affiliation. This deterred search of the killers, as the media gives us a negative narrative of these young men.

This had Sandra Hines upset. The fact that these men were in her church home wanting to do positive things. The police and media may not be aware of their right doings. Sandra makes sure of that by sharing their story all over social media.

The Honorable Al Green, Member Of Congress presented both Kenny and Ghost flags flown over The United States Capitol. They were the same flags given to Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King Jr. The deepest condolences were extended from the Men’s Ministry as well.

 

In today’s generation, we suffer with having a wide range to outlets to give back in the community. We will continue bringing awareness to resources our people need in Houston.

We give special thanks to Metro Ministry To Men, The Metropolitan CME Church Family, JR Achievers and Sunnyside Silver Hair Seniors Group Inc, MOSS Committee , Connie Ford (Russell & Smith Ford), Angelia Reese, Dori Wolfe,and Efrem Jernigan, FNM $hoota, and Vision4Productions.
