First off, sorry that there was no Show last Sunday, or all week for that matter on Newstyle radio. It was due to equipment theft from the Station. The police are looking into the matter. Although the FM signal is now back the power and frequency is effectively low.

UPDATE: Brown’s rep confirms he suffered a non-epileptic seizure. According to a statement the seizure was caused from intense fatigue and emotional stress… According to their source the call came from Record Plant recording studios in Hollywood at 1:09 AM. When EMTs arrived, they were told Chris refused treatment and also refused to be transported to the hospital. They have not received official confirmation if it was indeed a seizure, but they’ve learnt Chris did suffer from seizures as a child.

UPDATE: Chris Brown’s rep confirms that he suffered a non-epileptic (NES) seizure. “His doctor tended to him this afternoon and attributes the NES to intense fatigue and extreme emotional stress, both due to the continued onslaught of unfounded legal matters and the non-stop negativity,” Nicole Perna said in statement.
His girlfriend Karrueche Tran alluded to his health scare, tweeting, “Prayers all day … a lot on my mind today .. I need a hug.” Brown returned to Twitter on Saturday morning. “They won’t love u until u r a memory…” he wrote. His fans also wished for a speedy recovery, making “Pray for Chris Brown” a trending topic on Twitter. (R&B News)

Next Biography:

Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA-based hip-hop/R&B fusioneers Next were formed in 1992 by brothers T-Low (Born Terrance Brown, 7 June 1974, USA) and Tweety (Born Raphael Brown, 28 January 1976, USA) alongside friend R.L. (Born Robert Lavelle Huggar, 2 April 1977, USA). T-Low's godmother Ann Nesby took the outfit in hand, training and managing them during their first years. They secured their first breakthrough in 1994 when a home-town show was watched by Prof. T and Lance of Low Key? They brought the group to Jimmy Jam And Terry Lewis' Flyte Tyme Studio in Minneapolis. The resulting demo tape caught the attention of Kay Gee (Naughty By Nature), who saw Next as the perfect act to spearhead his new Arista Records-financed label, Divine Mill. The completed album featured collaborations with Naughty By Nature and Adina Howard, among others. A degree of critical carping ensued over the innuendo-saturated lyrics on display. Despite this, the trio saw the first single to be taken from the album, "Butta Love", become a million-seller, peaking at number 16 in December 1997. The trio subsequently appeared on television shows including Soul Train, Ricki Lake and Vibe as their popularity soared. The follow-up, "Too Close", topped the Billboard Hot 100 in April 1998 as they joined Mary J. Blige and Usher on tour and gained rave reviews for their polished live performances (particularly their dancing talents). "I Still Love You" climbed to US number 14 in October. The success was unexpected, and the band took their time over the follow-up.
