The diet of an individual has a lot to do with their health and wellbeing, and quality of life. the saying has been said many times before and it will be said many times more that you are what you eat and in some ways this is very true. The human body was designed to be a hunter and gatherer and so consistent movement was always the plan for humanity and when we began to modernise and continued to fall further into technological advancement and handsome a comma the further we got away from our designed and intended roots.

Ahmed Mahloof said that he looks forward to working with Minister Namal Rajapaksa and his team in exploring more opportunities as such.

  1. Using a creative art form to hurl curses, cusses and slander each other with the use of profanity? That’s what Maldivian rap scene has mostly been about. Don’t hate me, I think this is a great step ahead to provide a floor for upcoming and talented artists, but rap and the said industry can progress without including obscene level of profanity in the music.
