SékouWrites Launches New Automotive Website in NYC

204121f839f8292dad0979c2d5564f3dAuthor, journalist, former Uptown Magazine editor and founder of SimplyRides.com, SékouWrites, has expanded his automotive-lifestyle business with the launch of BumperCandy.com, a multicultural women’s-interest website featuring beautiful cars and the lifestyle that comes with owning them. BumperCandy.com joins SimplyRides.com under the banner of Sékou’s newly created Dubbnet Networks, an assortment of automotive lifestyle websites tailored to audiences with unique interests.

“Ironically, my childhood career goal was to be a car designer,” says Sékou about his new-found path. “Later, when I was the Managing Editor of Uptown Magazine, I edited the car section to reach an audience of folks who are interested in cars but aren’t very interested in what’s under the hood. Once I started writing the car section myself, several women told me that they liked the way I covered automotive and I realized there was a niche for readers who care about the aesthetics and lifestyle associated with automobiles but don’t like to get bogged down by car jargon.”
Sékou left Uptown in late 2011 to create SimplyRides.com, which provides automotive videos, celebrity interviews, and test drive reviews in layman’s terms, providing car lovers with exciting content without the confusing technical jargon and “industry speak.” The newly unveiled BumperCandy.com offers similar lifestyle and automotive coverage specifically for multicultural women. For example, the site has a #Girlcrush Drive column, which features notable women test-driving cars that resonate with their personality.

With Dubbnet’s two marquee sites now fully active, and twenty additional websites in Beta testing, the network already receives more than 9 million page views and 2.6 million unique visitors per month. Other Dubbnet websites include CelebrityTransit.com, which focuses on celebrities and their cars, and BucketlistWheels.com, which profiles luxury cars that every driver should have on his or her bucket list.

The creation of Dubbnet Networks and its newest site (BumperCandy.com) were announced on April 8 at the 2nd Annual SimplyRides.com New York Auto Show Mixer at Raw Space Gallery in Harlem. This year, the event was co-sponsored by Cadillac and featured the 2013 Cadillac XTS, which attendees had the opportunity to experience on site. TV personality and best-selling author Harriette Cole hosted the event, which was attended by such noteworthy influencers as interior designer Sheila Bridges, ConcreteLoop founder Angel Laws, theHotness founder Nicole Moore, actress Napiera Groves, singer Rachel Walker, Haute Giving founder Latoya Henry, and artist/designer Scott Tucker.

Anthony Hamilton with special guests Eric Benet & Marcus Canty ay DPAC

5b1b8d03d7e925edfc688ff85f5e3ffdThe spring is here and the summer is just around the corner. It’s time to enjoy the lovely weather and attend a few summer concerts. Soul fans are in for a treat when the Soulful Summer Tour featuring Anthony Hamilton with special guests Eric Benét and Marcus Canty come June 8 as part of Cool Summer Nights at DPAC.

Fans began paying attention to Anthony Hamilton in 2002, when he sang the infectious hook on the Nappy Roots’ “Po’ Folks.” That performance netted the singer the first of 10 Grammy® nominations for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration. More recently, his arresting voice provided the perfect accompaniment to Jill Scott’s earthy vocals on the captivating duet “So in Love.” Their dynamic pairing also set a record: 18 weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Urban AC chart. His fourth studio album, Back to Love, debuted at number 12 on the Billboard 200 chart, selling over 63,000 copies in its first week. This was his follow-up to the 2008 gold-certified, No. 1-debuting album, The Point of It All.
The Charlotte, N.C. native’s resume also includes performing a virtual duet of “Buon Natale” alongside Nat King Cole for The Nat King Cole Holiday Collection and a cameo appearance in the 2007 Oscar®-nominated film American Gangster starring Denzel Washington. Hamilton also performed that soundtrack’s lead song, the Diane Warren-penned “Do You Feel Me,” while his songs “Struggle No More” and “Can’t Let Go” appeared on the Daddy’s Little Girls soundtrack.

R&B crooner, songwriter and actor Eric Benét has successfully released six albums and was also nominated for a 2012 Grammy® Award for “Best Traditional R&B Performance” for his single “Sometimes I Cry.” He has also been active as an actor and most recently starred in his first lead role in the feature film Trinity Goodheart. Additionally, Eric had a recurring role on the television program For Your Love (1998–2002) and made his film debut alongside Mariah Carey in Glitter (2001).

Marcus Canty is the 21-year-old who won the hearts of America on Fox’s XFactor talent show. In 2009, Canty was chosen over hundreds of high school seniors across the nation by the National Foundation for Advancement In The Arts – YoungArt (which recognizes and supports America’s most talented 15 to 18-year-olds in the visual, literary and performing arts), and was inducted into the organization.

All guests require a ticket, regardless of age. No one under the age of 5 admitted into the theater, and children must be able to sit quietly in their own seat without disturbing other guests.
