R+B star Ms Dynamite is disappointed the spectacular series of LIVE 8 concerts failed to influence the world's political leaders.

The IT TAKES MORE singer, 24, is convinced the 2 July (05) concerts did little to encourage the world's eight most powerful leaders to discuss eradicating poverty in Africa when they met in Scotland four days later (06JUL05).

Dynamite, real name NAOMI McLEAN-DALEY, says, "It's true. The changes that I would like to have seen were not made at all, not even touched upon.

"Honestly, in my heart, I don't believe that Live 8 made any difference politically at all."
