In response to Reply # 0
Tue Jun-30-20 12:12 PM by kfine

          

confused since all the drama.

For example, in the initial statements made public by the aggrieved women, they speak of Okayplayer and Okayafrica, and the corporate response to the allegations cite Okayplayer and Okayafrica. But in the former CEOs statement, he cites Okaymedia and makes no mention of either Okayplayer and Okayafrica. Then in the women's response after that, they cite only Okaymedia. But if you google Okaymedia, a company in the Netherlands comes up as well as an old twitter account owned by what appears to be some teenybopper in Lagos.

Are Okayplayer and Okayafrica even actual companies?? Or is Okaymedia the actual company, and okayplayer and okayafrica are essentially just DBAs or domain names or what have you?? And what about Largeup, Revivalist, etc.. how do they fit in?

It's hilariously strange how opaque the business dealings surroundng this site are. Like are the boards hosted on some server in Djibouti right now lol? Is that why things went offline last summer lol?

quest got with the money team while they (steve and sam hendel, and steve's broadway producer wife and the chick that was doing A&R for fela's family that tweeted the apology) were pushing the fela play

his story is he caught the play at the end of the off-broadway run and helped bring jay z and will & jada in to take it to broadway

https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20190625005612/en/Levin-Easterly-Names-Sam-Hendel-President

so that is the public connection between the fitewolks and 15. and without researching it i'd bet that ?s getting involved with the play was roughly the time okayafrica launched as well, with some cash infusion from the fitewolks for the overall "okaymedia" pie.

and with okafrica having no competition, vs the other sites okp "competed" against for hiphop audiences/clicks, its not hard to picture the business strategy shifting to making okayafrica the centerpiece of "okaymedia", since thats where the money walked in the room anyway.


and SIDEBAR the 2 dudes are in investment banking/energy trading so this music website is most likely barely a playtime hobby/"looks good on a bio" that they pay no attn too, and the boards even less. which would also explain the delayed/lack of response by "ownership" on what all went down with the ceo.


my take.

also have fun unwrapping an international oil commodities trader thats in love with fela and songs against exploitation

And kudos to you for knowing.
I didn't know, so I asked.
I suspected, but didn't KNOW...so I asked.
Now I know...because I trust Tryptich knows...
So I'm good.
It's not any deeper than that.
Stop trying to MAKE it out that I'M making it deeper than that.
Folks can do whatever they want to do with the info...

I guess for ME...It's just another thing in this world that I'm aware of us (black folks) not really having full unadulterated control over. That's just me...because I like to know shit like that...just like I like to take mental notes of how many houses I pass that have black windows and white siding....or I notice how many other cars the exact same color and trim line as mine because it's a semi-rare combination.....

just geek down with me yo....you trying to pick a fight or something...and I'm not really on that...

The mods seem mad calm while others are feeling like they're asking a simple question, I know there is a moderators forum that you all got mad wild topics about the posters how but if this subject is too close for comfort for Mr.15's team then just post a statement and lock the topic.

..he's trolling up and down this thread, and the community falls for it every time.

He doesn't know anything, yet continues fronting like he does. Makes assumptions based on (who knows?), but straight up lied to you about why his racist comment was deleted, even though I made it plain and simple.

No one threatened to ban anyone (completely unnecessary), but I clearly asked him to stop with the shenanigans.

Can we please get passed the bullshit?

In response to Reply # 56


  

          

I personally try not to use it a lot here because its not a word that I generally use, particularly in "mixed" company.

Other people that would probably not use it in mixed conversations regularly throw it around here because it is an "assumed" majority black space, even if you pay attention its obviously not.

Even though that word is yelled on countless rap songs and used regularly on certain television shows.

There are other words that can get you banned here for even typing, but the N word is thrown around willy-nilly here on "super-woke OKP" where people spent countless posts arguing the minutiae of things like the capitalization of the "b" in black, "#ADOS" and "canceling" certain artists for songs or jokes and the newly dreaded "m" word.

Some posts about other topics that are foregone beaten "dead horses" constantly get randomly "upped" while other posts about subjects that the rest if the world is literally on fire about struggle to stay on the first page even in these relative slow times.

Look at the current world situation and how certain activities are "portrayed" vs who's actually doing them.

You have to ask yourself why and come to your own conclusions.

but geared towards a specific sound or demo and that shit never works IMO. This was during the time that was peaking but yeah. I guess they wanted to make some noise and money for having spawned a bunch of great artists on the boards

In response to Reply # 49


  

          

i'm sure is that this is Quest's site and he pays others to run it as he has other more important shit going on....
Thus it's a very valid assumption that he owns the site.
I really didn't anticipate what I thought was a simple straight forward question turning into this...
My bad.

I feel like it's pretty obvious in many ways what difference ownership of this site makes....
Primarily that it caters to the black diaspora in very much the same way that Ebony, Essence, JET, BET do/did...

having that bit of knowledge mattered.
It mattered to them in some form or fashion....whether significant or insignificant. It's not on you to determine what that knowledge was worth to those individuals (and me).
If you couldn't/can't see that....I don't know what to tell you....
My response stands....

that if a person asks a question then the answer to that question matters in some capacity or another. My question wasn't flawed at all. Your response to my question was/is flawed. Who are you to question why/how an answer that someone is seeking matters?
This is just basic human interaction competency skills....
You're bent on picking a fight with anybody and everybody whenever possible. If that's you...cool...do you... I'm not about that kinda drama though... I'll happily have a respectful dialogue and when that gets off kilter i'll inject some disrespect...because that's human nature...

In response to Reply # 44


  

          

are you communicating to me on a computer/phone/tablet that was made by a black business?

assuming you drive, is your vehicle made by a black manufacturer?

do you watch Netflix? buy water? ever eaten at a steakhouse? do you stream music on Apple or Spotify? do you watch videos on YouTube? ever been on Facebook or used Google to search for anything? is your email address through a black company?

explain the difference with okayplayer.com not being black owned. is it because it was a hub for neo-soul niggas two decades ago? guess what, The Roots (newsflash: they're employed by white ass Jimmy Fallon at white ass NBC now), Common, D'Angelo and all of them were signed to white record labels

The NBA/NFL

Dave Chappelle has been backed by Comedy Central/Netflix money
any classic rap or R&B album that wasnt independently funded, a white system put it out


if we're not talking soul food restaurants, name something black people enjoy that's funded with black money

but there is more than that in this world.

There was a time when this site was Black owned. At least I thought so in the early days. Maybe white people who paid The Roots for shows are also responsible for this creation.

Ionno, just seems like you can’t fathom Black people creating anything but soul food. We have more Black owned businesses besides food in the South.

Geffen/MCA/Def Jam/NBC/Pandora/IHeartRadio have been their employers

Ticketmaster/Live Nation or whoever people bought show tickets through

the concert venues they performed at

that aside, pretending it's an issue whether this site is black owned or not is ridiculous

98. "How does caring about ownership = the things you're saying it equals??? "
In response to Reply # 95


  

          

Most logical people have the capacity to do both.
Some people (probably most) like to know the origin/source/ownership/supplier/etc. of the things they consume and participate in....
So I really don't get this leap you keep making to say that MY desire to know ownership =. my desire to only exclusively participate in things that are black owned. I never said that anywhere.

reply here....
If it leans that way....I'll take my L and keep it moving....

I asked a straight forward question...got a straight forward answer...
You added a whole bunch extra in there based on your own agenda or whatever....I responded to every one of your statements in a pretty clear and straightforward fashion....

Yet...I'm the stupid looking one?
Ok.

you: is this site that we're on even black owned?

me: why? we're still gonna be here either way

you: no reason. it just matters that I know

me: that makes no sense

you: because you have an agenda

me: what agenda?

you: I dont have to answer that. also, you had an issue with my question

me: not really, I just asked what difference it made

you: agenda

Like yourself and many other charters, I've been hanging in and around these parts for 15+ years.

And there's definitely been a shift.

This site used to be an open vessel for fans to musicians and vice versa.

Remember that list of Okay artists on the old front page?

gone.

the okay artists that helped contribute to keeping the lights on in this place...

Erykah
Me'shell
BT
Common
Van Hunt
?uestlove

and so many more ...all used to post and converse with "us".

I remember when okp used to post lotteries to invite a select few to sit at listening parties of okp artists.

I remember being that lucky guy who was invited and went to The Roots listening party with my cousin at electric lady for The Tipping Point. I still have the pics from that night.

the banters between EB and posters.

the random wild stories ?uestlove shared openly

the meet and greets okps collectively had with one another in person.

the beat battles between okp producers where they posted their tracks and we would judge them.

bblock, tREBLEFREE, Obsidian Blue, etc.

yeah, there's the make the music page. but it aint the same.

Aquaman's conspiracy posts

and so many others.

the feeling of a progressive black community and cultures where you learned about new music, politics, food, and art from different parts of the planet that helped made you a better person for it.

because you either made new friends from it, or shared that enlightenment with your current friends with excitement.

because that shit was FELT.

But its changed. after speaking to some okp expats, i thought it was just myself and others who grew out of the whole scene.

but no. not entirely.

it's been noticeable for sometime now. a change of the guard during the dead of night? All i know is it doesn't take much intuition to know and feel that the love that was put into this site is gone.

Lets stop pretending that us old OKPs were part of some great golen era. Other platforms came out and OKP got left behind its just that simple. But to act like charter members left because a shift in the community etc is funny to me when we both (and some of you others know) all you fools do in your secret Facebook page is STILL bicker over bullshit and post nakeds. Yeah a real moving cultural experience of mature titties and dick pics LOL

In response to Reply # 0
Thu Jul-02-20 07:31 PM by CyrenYoung

  

          

..Def Jam, Rocafella, BET, etc.

All those brands were once black owned/operated, but were eventually sold (in part or entirety) to grow the business overall.

Typically, the founders work to retain a substantial stake, but even that isn't guaranteed.

Triptych answered your OP with the very 1st reply, yet people are in this thread claiming that anyone with an "OK" next to their name is acting dodgy, keeping secrets, or being sensitive. RJCC told you that he doesn't know anymore than y'all, and apparently people think he's trolling LOL. You're asking a messageboard community to answer more questions that only ?uest or Thought can/should answer. And when you don't get the response you were looking for, people just run with assumptions.

Does that mean that I don't have a clue?

No. It means I know better than to speak for others when they can speak for themselves.

You can use the same parking lot for 20 yrs and never realize that its ownership changed hands several times during that span. Why is this any different?

The speculation regarding OkayAfrica is understandable, given the fact that people love to run with assumptions. Yet, Ginny (until recently) has always been front & center of that brand/movement and has told the story of its origins on this very site, but y'all never bothered to read it. As so many people have blatantly mentioned in this thread (and others) that they are/were only interested in the boards, but most of this current community never bothered to check out the rest of the site (even though we've been asking/advertising that since the days of the original splash page). How can anyone here feign shock & awe or surprise when they opted out of the very same info they're currently seeking?

I don't have anything to do with how much info is published about the origins or current partners/owners of this site, but we all know who the founders are and they're still involved (even at a distance).

I'm not sure what else you expect to be said here, but you're not getting the response that you desire because you're asking the wrong people.

..my bad, I'm addressing the entire thread in general.

There's nothing wrong with the question you asked, but you'd still be better off getting your answer direct from the source (instead of speculation on a messageboard), esp when that source still posts here.
