Mr. Hollywood, also known as Deven Powers, is taking the entertainment industry by storm. With a 2021 movie project at hand, he is also set to release the new music video of the summertime hit “I Got California Love” this coming August.
Born Deven Lavale Purifoy, Deven Powers is the founder of several entertainment industry projects such as Mr. Hollywood TV Show and The Black Film Festival of Los Angeles. He also manages Mr. Hollywood Blogs, Mr. Hollywood Magazine, and Mr. Hollywood Films. His charming personality on and off-air has paved his way of becoming one of the best hosts for red carpets and other events such as the LA Live Film Festival, where he has served as a host since 2018.
He has been featured in many publications such as Star Central Magazine in its July issue, The Buzz Magazine in its May 2020 issue, Global Millionaire Magazine, and Famous & Savage. He is also one of the faces of the UK apparel brand, “Good Side Bad Side.” He is the host of The Mr. Hollywood TV Show, which airs on channel 99 of AT&T U-Verse, and channel 32 on Charter Spectrum. The show is set to be aired on Amazon Prime as well.
Deven comes from a big family of 14 children, with him being the 10th child in the family. His mother was a talented gospel singer, and his father was a pastor. At nine years old, he began playing the drums. At 13, he received a drum set from a band member of the famous group The Gap Band. He then played as a drummer in his church congregation. This served as Deven’s inspiration, and he went on to join the marching band in his high school years at Rancho Verde High School.
Growing up, he found himself leaning toward the entertainment world. Eventually, his face was on shows and magazines. Since then, he has been passionate about his career and has worked hard in every project that he has participated in. Deven’s work ethic is impressive and makes it a lot easier for whoever he works with. Today, he juggles his work as an actor, model, TV host, singer, songwriter, movie script writer, and producer. Although he has several projects at hand, his doors are still open for more opportunities.
Currently, he has his hands tied to an upcoming movie, The Bad Boyz of Hollywood, which will be released in 2021. The movie explores the suspense and drama genres in one story. With its exciting scenes and twists, movie enthusiasts should definitely tune in and wait for it. As a producer, Deven is also excited about launching the new music video of the single “I Got California Love,” which was shot by Motion Flare. The song is already available on VEVO as of July but will have its release on MTV and VH1 in August.
