“Wealth is material, but without your health all the material things don’t mean a thing”

Macka B shot to fame after his YouTube video Cucumba went viral last year. We spoke to him about meditation, music and meals

Macka B has a velvet voice which would be perfect for audiobooks, nature programs or, perhaps, creating music. We spoke to Macka early in the morning, after his daily meditation session, which he says allows him to tune into his own frequency.

Hi Macka, thanks for taking the time to speak to us. How was your meditation this morning?

“Meditation generates frame of mind and allows me to contemplate on things that have happened in the past and things in the future, you know.”

Do you believe there is a link between veganism and spirituality?

“To me if you’re eating death then it’s going to be on you; you’re going to be thinking more negative thoughts. Even at the point when an animal is killed, chemicals are released into the animal and you’re eating these chemicals as well, so you’re becoming even more stressed and thinking negative things. A healthy body to me means a healthy mind and that begins with life. Life over death. You’re thinking more positive thoughts. Thinking about loving instead of killing. Life instead of death. All of this leads to a more spiritual existence.”

About Vegan Life

It’s finally June, the first month of summer, and that means it’s time to head outside. Remember to grab your cruelty-free, vegan sun cream on your way out, as well as your trusty copy of Vegan Life. We’ve got a great issue for you this month and I’m particularly excited about sharing our Animal Rights Special with you. We have guest articles from PETA, Viva!, Animal Equality and the Humane League. These organisations are talking about their successes, animal rights after Brexit and current campaigns to get behind. We have also had the pleasure of working with some fantastic writers this month including Megan Banks, who is reporting on her experience of 28 days as a plant based fitness mentor and our regular columnist, Maria Slough, who has written a inspiring piece about Dr Rebecca Ellen Jones, also known as the Vegan Doctor. This month we’re bringing you an interview with viral celebrity Macka B about his music, becoming a YouTube sensation and veganism. Macka has some great tips about spirituality and embracing your own style, as well as veganism. He told me: “To me, if you’re eating death then it’s going to be on you; you’re going to be thinking more negative thoughts.” Finally, we have an article about the environmental impacts of desertification around the world, which is a global threat to food security. It is an issue that I was aware of, but having researched and read the article in June’s issue, I am astonished by the magnitude of the problem. The Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations estimates that 25 per cent of all land globally is highly degraded. I’d love to hear your thoughts on desertification — please send us an email to let us know what you think. Enjoy the summer sun!
