Last week I was one of the guest artists and workshop leaders at the 200 year anniversary of the Dutch Bible Society, also known as Nederlands Bijbel Genootschap (NBG). A filmcrew from Dutch broadcasting company EO filmed a piece of my performance and interviewed me about my favorite bible verses, watch the recap via this link.
Last Friday I was invited to come discuss the importance of keeping open youth institution Amsterbaken in Amsterdam. This to help young delinquents resocialize into society and to keep their social network viral while being incarcerated. Check the interview via this link.
Check out the nice video recap of my acoustic performance at the Arty Party of InkYourSkin Tattooshop in Amsterdam.
Yesterday I was invited to come talk about Youth, Unemployment, Work & Money in De Nieuws BV Radio 1 show on Dutch Public Broadcoasting NOS. You can now check out the interview I had with Felix Meurders and Willemijn Veenhoven. I'm a guest with breakdancer Jay Visser, who's looking for work. I'm going to help him with his businessplan to see how we can make it profitable for him. Check out the interview in the video I below, I start talking around 6 minutes but the whole interview is interesting as Sywert, former chairman of LAKS, also adds his '50 cents' on the topic, enjoy..

Whaddup folks :) , I'm very happy to share with you that I'm featured in a tv programme titled "Geloven op 2". This afternoon it'll air on Dutch TV on Channel 2 (Nederland 2) and I will share my vision on the Dutch slave past, why its effects are still seen in Dutch society and why it should be commemorated and discussed to diminish it's effects. I'll also do parts of my rap "God is Niet Wit". Thankful for this opportunity and I hope this item will inform and touch you....love, Riv!

This single is dedicated to women and children who have been victimized by the tragedy of human slavery and human trafficking. Home of Change helps them get out of the situation by providing a safe place. As an ambassador I hope to bring awareness to the masses and mobilize them to change their spending and consuming habits in order to help stop human trafficking.
