The New App Making Waves on Social Media and The 2023 Stellar Awards Celebrity Showdown

Hi everyone, it’s your host DJ Focus, and I’m here to share some exciting insights from our recent podcast episode. My co-host, Dice Gamble, and I had a thrilling discussion about our participation in a celebrity basketball game in Las Vegas, the Stellar Awards, and the rising popularity of a new social media app, Threads. Let’s dive in!

The Celebrity Basketball Game and Stellar Awards

Our conversation kicked off with the anticipation of the celebrity basketball game. We’re thrilled to be part of this event, playing alongside and against some notable figures like Bishop Marvin Sapp and Dr. Jamal Bryant. The personal stakes are high, and the motivation is even higher.

We also touched on the Stellar Awards happening that week. The excitement is palpable, and we can’t wait to see what unfolds.

Introducing Our Guests: Trevonne Perry and Gabriel Tyus

Our guests for the episode were Trevonne Perry and Gabriel Tyus, both talented figures in the music industry and our opponents in the upcoming game. We delved into their roles in the industry, with a special focus on Gabriel Tyus’s work as a promoter. We highlighted the crucial role of gospel promoters in connecting artists with opportunities and fostering relationships.

The Importance of Trust and Belief

One of the key takeaways from our discussion was the importance of treating people right and promoting oneself to succeed in any field. We shared experiences of starting businesses and overcoming dark periods in our lives. We emphasized the power of sharing our stories and how they can impact others.

The Anticipation of the Celebrity Basketball Game

As we shifted our discussion to the upcoming celebrity basketball game and the Stellar Weekend event, we couldn’t help but express our anticipation for the reunion and the opportunity to network with others in the industry. We even had a playful banter about our basketball skills and a friendly challenge on the court.

The Rise of Threads: A New Social Media App

Our conversation took an interesting turn when we started discussing the new social media app, Threads. With its growing popularity and 80 million users, we highlighted its advantages over Twitter, such as the ability to post full YouTube videos and its transparency. We also touched on the Spill app, a black-owned app overshadowed by Threads due to Zuckerberg’s influence.

The Future of Social Media

We pondered the future of social media, questioning whether Threads will last or if it’s just a temporary trend. We also discussed the ongoing debate between Zuckerberg and Elon Musk about wealth and the possibility of someone developing a new and advanced social media platform in the future.

Balancing Multiple Social Media Platforms

We shared our experiences with various social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, Snapchat, Instagram, LinkedIn, and the challenges of balancing them. We expressed our frustration with the character limit on Twitter and the drama that often occurs there.
