Multi-platinum and seven-time Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter, artist, actress and producer Toni Braxton is set to receive the coveted Don Cornelius Legend Award. Braxton became an immediate R&B superstar after the release of her self-titled debut album in 1993. Her debut album received multiple awards, including three Grammy Awards (for Best New Artist and two consecutive awards for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance in 1994 and 1995). Her second album, “Secrets” was certified 8x platinum and included her greatest hit titled, “Un-Break My Heart,” the Diane Warren-penned ballad which spent 11-weeks at number one. Over the span of her career, Braxton has sold over 67 million records, including 41 million albums, worldwide. Toni’s current single, “Deadwood,” was released by Def Jam Recordings in September and her new album, “Sex & Cigarettes,” her first in seven years, will be out in early 2018.

The third annual Lady of Soul Award will be presented to Grammy Award-Nominated, multi-platinum, female R&B trio SWV. SWV became one of the most successful R&B groups of the 1990s. They had a series of hits, including “Weak,” “Right Here/Human Nature,” “I’m So into You,” and “You’re the One.” They have sold more than 25 million records, making them one of the best-selling girl groups of all time. Last year’s Lady of Soul Award went to R&B icon Brandy. Both Toni and SWV are being recognized for their longstanding presence in the music industry and influence on the world of soul and R&B music past and present.

2018 is really going to be poppin’ for web series, especially for the latest season in Signal 23 TV’s anthology series, About Him: South Africa! A few of our favorite Web Stars are taking their acting game internationally as they head to the motherland, but they will not be going alone.

Apparently, Love & Hip-Hop alumni, Milan Christopher Gordy, has joined the cast of About Him: South Africa where he will star alongside Jaquay Wilkerson and based on his Facebook posts, Lando King!

Milan posted the following picture to his Instagram stories today and it looks like this will not just be a walk-on or guest role, but a main one, appearing in a whopping twelve episodes!

As you recall, Milan was a series regular on the second season of Love & Hip-Hop Hollywood where he and “rapper,” Siir Brock, were presented as hip-hop’s first openly gay male couple. Needless to say the relationship quickly soured in some of the most public ways–namely social media feuding. Since then, Milan has been rumored to be romantically attached to Empire star, Jussie Smollett, and Magic Johnson’s son, EJ. Neither were ever proven.

We have to admit this is pretty exciting and we will definitely be tuning into this season. Now, we have never seen Milan act, but he is a child of Los Angeles we are sure some of that skill has rubbed off on him. Mr. Gordy is also some serious eye candy, maybe he will top our Hottest Web Stars list this year. Nevertheless, we will keep you posted as more about Milan and About Him: South Africa develops!

That caption is saying a lot! It definitely is not the lingo the average heterosexual African-American male would use. Then again, Charlamagne always comes with the funny.
