markizdj.com is a safe haven for R&B junkies and music lovers of all genres! I’ve been giving musicians (mostly Black musicians) I feel are worthy of being called legends their “flowers.”
I started my blog as a forum to speak my mind about current events and how I feel about everyday topics, because my friends motivated me to do so. However, after the deaths of Prince, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and so many more of our black icons who have passed..I was motivated to start giving Black entertainers their flowers while they are still with us. We (well y’all) often treat our legendary artists like they are washed and their time is up.
My duty is to show our legends that their contributions to music are just as important as any other artist..and to introduce the new generation to artists before their time. My first appreciation post went to the iconic Janet Jackson, who is my favorite entertainer of all time. I have gone on to create over 50 appreciation posts, honoring OUR people and culture. -Markiz Johnson.
