Face of the Day

Kim Dotcom is making music:

“This is going to be number one around the world,” says Kim Dotcom. Music is booming through the kitchen of the home he shares with his wife Mona, their five children and associated staff and retinue.

The track is Welcome To The Good Life. The German-born internet mogul’s accented tones sing: “Sleep all day, party all night / have whatever you want, whenever you like.”

The lyrics are like a title track for Dotcom’s life-or what it once was. The one-time playboy had transformed into a family man by the time the police arrived at his Coatesville mansion two months ago with an arrest warrant from the United States.

Now, the man accused of the world’s biggest copyright violation is making his own music.

“This is what I am doing now,” says Dotcom. “I’m an artist!” He high-fives, beams a smile and hustles through the playlist for another song. “Listen to the lyric,” he says, over-excited. There’s a joke coming. His voice thunders through the kitchen – “You don’t need no copyright to dance” – as Dotcom’s smile beams wider and he laughs.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
