Buzz looks forward to watching the April 4 broadcast of the Trumpet Awards, since we spent Saturday backstage waiting to interview honorees and performers and didn’t actually see the show.
But we were glad to run into folks like artist Synthia Saint James, who created the first official Kwanzaa stamp, and actress Keshia Knight Pulliam.
And then there was R&B artist Keith Sweat, now hosting a nationally syndicated radio show, The Sweat Hotel, but perhaps best known lately and locally as the ex of Lisa Wu Hartwell of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” fame.
“My kids love their mom and they love their dad,” he said, keeping things positive. “I’m in their life and that’s a good thing. When it comes to my kids I keep things low-key.”
