Wassup. I'm Basil J.
Legitimacy is an important element of CoKo~Cure's success. To maintain that integrity,
I network closely with CoKo, BMG Entertainment and RCA Records, especially in regards to her weekly/monthly schedule. This enables me to give you fans advanced, factual notice on CoKo's upcoming performances and appearances. I serve as the primary source of information you find throughout the website. To get your up-to-the-minute Coko fix, be sure to check out the "HOT Exclusive News" releases.
I also deal with rhythm crossover, AC and urban radio, magazine editors and others in the industry to obtain information on Ms. Voice. Many of you live in other countries and do not have access to our U.S. music charts and vice versa for us American fans. To bridge this gap, I compile all of the chart activity, sales, airplay and RCA ads, to keep you abreast of developments on both U.S. and international charts.
I also obtain the hottest photos of Coko (posted throughout this site and in the Gallery
(excluding the video caps). My other web mastering responsibilities include designing concepts for the various CoKo~Cure Chambers (especially fan interaction-based sections like "The F-Files", "CoKo'tique", "SWV/CoKo Fanatic", and "Da Wishing Well"). In addition, I coordinate with the site's on-location "F.W.V. Correspondents". These individuals keep me updated as to how CoKo is being received at retail, radio, and venues in their locale. In this way, users can receive "live" feedback from fans around the world, directly through their PCs.
In my personal time, I enjoy developing my abilities as an artist (pencil and ink are my favorite mediums to work with). I take a great interest in songwriting -- especially in arranging music and vocals. Since 1994, I have designed CDs and cover jackets for developing artists in my area. I lift weights for both exercise and appearance, and would like to get back into bodybuilding one day. Swimming, football, and renting 70's movies are some of my vices when I am not traveling on business.
CoKo has always my favorite voice on wax. That's why I named the site "The
CoKo~Cure": It sets the record straight about her solo endeavor from SWV. For
