Mr. Kemp states that he is “looking forward to representing The Bahamas proudly at Mr. World. I feel that I truly embody the characteristics for which the competition is known, namely identifying that man in the world who can best show his ‘strength, stamina, mental agility and determination to succeed in the face of adversity’. I am confident that I will do my best. I wish to thank the local Miss Bahamas World organization, Michelle Malcolm, and Macumbla Smith who has stepped in to assist with training and choreography and, of course, my family, Mode Iles and Mr. Owen Bethel for their support.”

ISLAND Spotlight :: Weekend of the 26th- 27th with Mez

This Friday was an extra special night. Yes I don't care what you think. It was my Half-Birthday, that time of year where one gives thanks for making it halfway to their annual birth celebration.

Fuq a snowstorm, we stomped that shit out, its Manhattan, we don't play that NJ crap. Nearly froze mah fuqing toze off too :(.

Made it to Johnny Utah's and had 4 tables held down by my Blaqlist fam. Chris, Darrius, Roy and Conchita all rocked out and we literally saved that night.

Word to the Wise: don't wear loafers after a snowstorm and try jumping drains... frostbite will get u.

Shout out to my boy Mark who was having a great time over @ Fat Baby (I may start my nights there from his response).

Saturday was a personal Day, went over to Queens to celebrate a friend's birthday and My God. Nuves Nightclub was rocking. It's a spanish club(so beware) but the ladies were top o' the line!

Me and Conchita @ Utahs :) amazing woman!
