DERRY MENSAH (X-FACTOR)

Dear gorgeous person you!


As you know from my last post, I met Derry 'Dez' Mensah at Pop Revue - Freedom Bar Soho a few weeks ago. Surprise, surprise - trust me to get in there and book a video blog date with him! Derry was kind enough to invite me to his beautiful home to film him for a #DigMusic feature and so I did. We spent a couple of hours filming the actual Dig Music video which isn't out yet but will definitely be a real treat when it is, so make sure you keep an eye out for that. In the meantime, here's a vlog we made in between filming. 

****Press play first but remember to change the settings at the bottom right hand corner of the video to 1080p for HD quality. You can also watch this video on my Youtube channel if you prefer****


Hanging out with Derry was so much fun. He was so easy to film. Very humble too. He's so normal, it's ridiculous. He has no ounce of arrogance in him and considering he is one fourth of one of the biggest boybands to come out of the X-Factor (The Risk), that's quite surprising. In actual fact, he's quite shy and that was totally unexpected as when I first met him at Pop Revue, he was singing to an intimate room of people and he had the loudest screams of the night, partly because his noisy RoughCopy friends Joey and Sterling were there. The point being, he did not seem shy in the slightest. He looked 'at home' on stage and wow did he kill it! So meeting this really sweet, shy guy at home was a massive shock but a very pleasant surprise.





Oh and...check out his very cute little brother two thirds of the way into the video.


I feel very privileged to have had the opportunity to hang out with Derry. He is so very talented and I'm very sure he'll be that massive success he dreams about. His voice is authentic and I'm in awe of how raw his talent is. He is making a lot of people very happy by bringing real R&B back - as it should be! Hope you enjoy the vlog. Whilst you're waiting for Derry's main video to be released, do follow him on Twitter and Youtube... and check out his new single #WayTooDrunk below.


Lots of love,
J
