“JEJE” paying homage to her parents native country over a Romantic love song.    

HXNEY is an Irish raised artist who is a Nigerian descendant, with both parents from Nigeria. 

HXNEY decided to implement her native language (Yoruba) into her recent single to pay homage to the culture.

HXNEY who currently lives in the UK, travels to Dublin regularly for creative work and gatherings with friends and family.

HXNEY is a versatile artist and songwriter with the ability to tap into any genre “effortlessly”. She thrives however, in Modern Alternative RnB as opposed to the traditional RnB market. She is heavily influenced by Frank Ocean, due to his free thinking, along with the likes of James Fauntleroy, Lianne La Havas, Brandy, Jhené Aiko.

Fans and followers will notice that the sound of her music changes with every release due to her experimental nature, with her main strengths being her melodies, harmonies, tone, vocal range and arrangements. 

JEJE 

The song Jeje was inspired by a brief relationship that had progressed too quickly.

The song is a break up letter packaged with soothing vocals delivered on a chilled acoustic instrumental.

Hxney says ‘‘The song was written from a pure state of consciousness, where I let my emotions flow freely. Jeje took me about 10mins to write unlike my previous work, and soon became one of my favourite songs of mine. 

As we wrap up 2020 and as I start my new era  as an artist, I felt like it was only right to share this with my listeners in order to introduce them to a fresh approach from me and connect with me on a different level”

Kiwi &Banana Smoothie Recipe🥝🍌

Kiwis aren’t my fruit of choice. Nevertheless, I decided to make a kiwi and banana smoothie this morning and it did not fail to disappoint.

ingredients

  • 3 kiwi fruit
  • 4 tablespoons organic porridge oats
  • 1 banana
  • 8 ice cubes
  • 200ml milk
  • 250g natural yoghurt
  • 1/2 cm piece fresh ginger (optional)
  • honey (optional)

method

  • Top and the tail the kiwi fruit and stand them on their ends. Slice the skin off in vertical strips with a sharp knife.
  • Whiz the kiwi fruit with the remaining ingredients, apart from the honey, in a blender for 30 seconds. Sweeten with a little honey, if you like.

Mini pancakes Recipe🥞

This is a Tesco recipe and doesn’t take long to cook. Go wild with your favourite toppings 🍓🍐🍌🍯 I made this for brunch today. These pancakes make the perfect breakfast or after-dinner treat.

  • 150g self-raising flour
  • 1 egg
  • 250ml semi-skilled milk
  • oil for greasing
  • toppings of your choice (I chose Big Red Kitchen Butterscotch Sauce)

Put the flour into a mixing bowl. Make a well in the centre and add the egg and about half of the milk.

Using a whisk, or wooden spoon, mix to a smooth, thick batter. You may need to add a little more milk if the batter is too thick to mix.

When the batter is smooth, gradually stir in the rest of the milk until it is well combined.

Add a small amount of oil to the frying pan; just enough to give a non-stick layer to the surface of the pan. Heat on high until the oil begins to smoke, then turn down the heat to medium.

Pour 15ml spoons of batter into the pan. This should make pancakes about 3cm in diameter.

Leave each pancake for about 30 seconds. Bubbles will appear on the surface and the mixture will start to set. Flip each pancake over using a palette knife or fish slice and leave for another 30 seconds.

I had 6 mini pancakes this morning for brunch with Butterscotch Sauce as the topping.
