Rapper AKA Finally Opens Up On His Breakup With Bonang Matheba

Several weeks after rapper AKA took to social media to claim he broke up with media personality Bonang Matheba, the rapper has addressed their apparent split and claimed he was still dealing with the loss.
The hitmaker released his latest single, Sweet Fire, last week where he touched on lost love.

"One thing about love it could drug you," AKA declares at the start of the track, before claiming that "he can't do it like I do."

Speaking to 5FM's Thando Thabethe recently, AKA confirmed the track was about losing music icons and also losing love in a relationship, but refused to share details on his alleged breakup.

"If I was any less of a guy, I would just stand here and tell you the whole story. But I think when you love somebody and you respect somebody, you leave that type of stuff between each other."

AKA claimed that he was not yet over his ex and was not dating again.

"I believe I'm still dealing with it, I'm not going to say I am over her. I am not going to say I don't love her. I do. All of those things. I am a human being, guys."

Still, many fans have expressed doubt that the breakup was real. To add fuel to the fire, a picture of Bonang and AKA surfaced on social media last week.
Twitter CSI pointed out that B was wearing the same dress that she did at a Cape Town wine farm.

A female senior air force officer is coming under fire for going on social media to rant about her Black female subordinates.
The officer whose name is Lovely, as can be seen on the breast of her uniform, said in the video that her Black female subordinates have "attitudes" and treat her like she isn't a person. She went on to say that whenever she talks to them they reply "no ma'am". She said the "no ma'am" part as though it were an insult and said it's like they're talking down to her.
"There's fu***** issues with my airmen and my SEOs that are lower ranking with me but they're Black females. And it pisses me the fu** off that they have no fu***** respect and they constantly having an attitude. And... what the fu** is up with that?" she says in the video.
"Like, I'm trying my best to hold my professionalism with them but good God they have no fu***** respect whatsoever.
"Every time I talk to them... 'no ma'am', it's just like I'm... they're talking down to me. And I'm trying to tread lightly as a, you know, higher ranking SEO not to fu***** blow the fu** up and start a fight club because... but I'm fu***** over it.
"Why is it that every time I encounter my subordinates that are Black females, they have a giant fu***** attitude. And it's not like I'm coming to them with a fu***** attitude. I don't. But every time I fu***** talk to them, it's just like I'm... I'm just some fu***** stupid ass girl that is just... that doesn't even... what is that called? Like I don't even deserve to be talked to as a person."
The video, which was created at Nellis Air Force Base, went viral and a lot of people feel her rant is "racist".  The video has been taken down and is currently being investigated. Tech. Sgt. Geraldine Lovely has now been "removed from her supervisory role" after viral footage of the "racially insensitive" tirade surfaced over the weekend.
The deleted video was reuploaded to Facebook by an airforce forum – with a new caption blasting Lovely for her racist tirade.
"I’m Maj Chris Sukach, Nellis Public Affairs. This is inappropriate and unacceptable behavior in today’s society & especially for anyone in uniform. Leadership is aware and is taking appropriate action," the caption reads.

Nollywood Actress Maryam Charles Tattoos Boyfriend’s Name On Her Finger

Love is in the air for Nigerian actress and movie maker Maryam Charles who boldly inks the initial of her boyfriend on her wedding ring finger.
The tattoo was spotted when the actress displayed her newly fixed nails in a picture she shared on her social media. She simply wrote the letter ‘S’ on the third finger of her left hand.
Further probe revealed the ‘S’ means ‘Stephen’, although the ‘Madam Caitlyn’ producer didn’t give details about her relationship with him, but, one thing is certain, Maryam is drunk in love.
We’re however not sure if Stephen was the man who was spotted posing cozily with the actress in a photo that recently went viral on the net, with claims that he’s based out of the country.
Recall, Maryam was one of the vocal celebrities who condemned Nigerian men celebrating the newly launched female sex doll and advised them to be responsible and take good care of their girlfriends (wives) instead of jubilating over a doll.

Police in Ogun State have arrested two suspects in connection with the alleged hijacking of a truck-load of lager beer on the highway.
The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Abimbola Oyeyemi, who disclosed this in a statement issued in Abeokuta, said the stolen beer worth N2,714,000.
Oyeyemi said that the goods were stolen from Osun State by gun-wielding robbers and recovered at Ode-Remo in Ogun State. According to him, the truck was coming from Ilesa and headed towards Iragbiji in Osun.
The PPRO said a member of the robbery gang, Saheed Omotosho, and the receiver of the stolen beer, Mrs. Adijat Azeez, were arrested.
He said: “The arrest of the suspects followed a distress call received by policemen attached to Sagamu Area Command that a yellow truck was hijacked by three armed men while coming from Ilesa where he had gone to convey Trophy beer valued at N2,714,000 and that the vehicle tracking device indicated that the men were heading towards Sagamu with the truck.

Celebrity Housemates: Eviction Tsunami Hits Muma Gee & Jaywon

The second eviction in the celebrity housemates reality TV Show has just occurred and 2 housemates, Muma Gee and Jaywon whose fans couldn’t come through with enough votes to keep them in the house.
The housemates were initially nominated for eviction earlier in the week with three others – Eniola Badmus, Frederick Leonard &Yomi FashLanso were asked to canvas for votes from their fans and viewing public to enable them remain in the house. The three other Contestants got rewarded by their fans with large turnout of votes while the evicted Contestants had dismal votes. The announcement was made by the voice of the house in the early hours of Monday to vacate the house based on vote counts from our website www.celebrityhousemates.tv.
The eviction has already set the house in panic as other contestants who remain in the house are now been extra careful and understands the main reason why they are in the house.
It was like a Tsunami when the names were announced, while to some housemates it wasn’t really a surprise as some actually felt it was the right time for the contestants to vacate the house.
For Muma Gee, it wasn’t a surprise to her at all as she was already anticipating her exit from the house, going by the lowest voted recorded from the website.
Though she had a good time in the house, as she was able to learn a lot through the bundle of talents her other contestants came with, but it does not really go well with her and other housemates except for Frederick Leonard who she clinched with and spent the entire moment while in the house.
“It was a very good opportunity for me to even meet with someone who understands the real me, and could let me out of my shell with his intelligence, and maturity. I had never met Frederick before the show and when I met him, it was like a new wine and life entirely for me”.
Saying further that she enjoyed all their chats and intelligent discussions, that would be very helpful to her in her other areas of life exertion, but as for other housemates it wasn’t too good like you would think.
“Some of them were living a fake life in the house, all in the name of winning the grand prize, but I lived my life like I always do in my everyday activities, not minding the fact that there was even an attached price for the winner of the show, weather the money or not it was a very great experience and opportunity for me to learn a lot even from some of the guests who came to talk to us.
For Oluwajuwonlo Iledare aka Jaywon on his part, the experience was awesome and it was like starting a new life all over again. As he felt he knew it all and was already comfortable with what he knows and live with, but the participation opened his eyes and orientations to another aspect of life.
“I used to believe I know it all, and for me I’m not used to doing some things before now, the last time I wash my cloths and attend to house chores was when I was growing up, but this house made me understand the fact that you need to attend to some things yourself and doing them is like just exercising and keeping a routine kind of life style.
“I started getting tired of the house the day Ada Ameh was evicted, because she was my closest companion in the house, she took me like a brother and son, and was always there for me. I remembered when I was down in the house, Ada Ameh brought me medications and also brought tea to me every morning and night to ensure I was ok. And the other part of it was that she was evicted the same day Funky Mallam also got booted out, and funky mallam was my room-mate whom we discuss and gist together. Ever since then leaving the house was no longer going to hit me or shock me anymore”
He commended the effort of the organizers for a well-articulated project and their attention to details, its not an easy task to put together celebrity adults in one house and control them, but they did it successfully, I will always want to come back again if I am opportunued to be invited in the future” He told us in a chat after his eviction.
“I feel like going back to school, haven learnt so many things and seen the other side of life as an artiste”.
The remaining housemates have braced up their skills and craftsmanship to enable them achieve their aims, but while we also await the eventual winner of the show, the housemates are still canvassing for votes by their fans and loved ones to enable them remain in the house.
The show continues as we look forward to that one person who will be the celebrity of the year, and winner of the Celebrity Housemates Reality TV show.

Actor Shemar Moore Shows Off His New Stunning Girlfriend Anabelle Acosta At The 2018 Grammy Awards

S.W.A.T. actor, Shemar Moore, 47, showed off his new woman, Anabelle Acosta, 30, as they attended the Grammy Awards and stunned with their coordinated black ensembles on the red carpet.
While at the Madison Square Garden event, Shemar revealed to ET that he won the  Quantico actress' heart by sending her some of the 'Poetry in my fingertips!'
'I wrote an email. I did that impromptu, chivalry stuff. I took a chance, I took a leap. Mama is fussing at me! But Miss Anabelle Acosta, she's beautiful, look at her.'
Shemar confessed that when he sent the email: 'We had never met each other. I wrote [the email] just knowing there's no way she's going to hit me back...
'But I went back to my creative writing classes, I got my mama in my head: "Show respect," and I was a poet. Poetry in these fingertips! I wrote a little something something, and I just waited... A few days went by, and then bam!'
He recalled: 'You know what the first thing she said to me [was]? "Mr. Shemar Moore, I hear you've been looking for me. Watch yourself!" I was like: "Oh, it's on!"'
Anabelle, who described the couple as 'having fun tonight,' said: 'I thought this would be fun. I presented at the Latin AMAs last year. I told him it was stressful, so I didn't get to enjoy the show. So he gets to present [at the GRAMMYs tonight], get the stress this time, and I get to watch the show.'
Shemar reminisced: 'I said, 'You want to be spontaneous? You want to do something that most people won't do? You responded to my email. Let's just go big and have fun, because it's a good story. It's a good story no matter how it plays out. It's already a great story!'

Bovi Writes An Open Letter To Actress Dorcas Shola Fapson Following Her Saga With A Taxify Driver

Comedian Bovi has taken to his Instagram page to write an open letter to actress, Dorcas Shola Fapson following her saga with a Taxify driver. If you missed it, read here)
In his open letter, Bovi advised Dorcas to hold her head high. He also listed out what she did right and what she could have done differently. He wrote;
Dear Dorcas,
I’m compelled to write you a public letter because I have an overwhelming urge to participate in the public discuss of your recent episode. As a friend, I will feel I failed you by remaining quiet while a section of society bashed you these past few days. But rather than defend you to a group of people who don’t know you personally and who have made up their minds even in the face of overwhelming evidence, allow me to publicly tell you about your experience, what you did right and what you should have done differently.
First off, your biggest crime in all of this was not fitting into the stereotype! You’ve been dragged in many sections for being bold and courageous under fire. While the taxi driver was taken you to a wrong destination, just because your voice was firm and assertive, it seemed as though nothing troubling was happening. While the driver restrained you from coming down from the taxi, you pepper sprayed him and your voice and resolve was still not broken. This too doesn’t fit the stereotype. If it was a scene out of a movie, the director would probably ask you to scream, cry, be shaken and even beg to be let go. In the eyes of many, you were too bold, too calm, too calculated for a lady. To this I say a big kudos. Don’t stop. Don’t change. Because the fact remains, as far as he took you to a destination against your will in the middle of the night, you were abducted. That is a crime punishable by law.
Somewhere, some girl is inspired by your boldness.
Next time though, it will be wiser to get down from the car as quickly as possible. Do not take chances or hesitate. Safety first should be your watch word. Cynthia hesitated in festac. It didn’t end well.
If you had a PR expert by your side the next day, just before you posted those videos explaining what actually transpired, he/she would have worn you a very thick cardigan and wrapped you in a blanket. You would have been asked to speak in a “victim tone”. All this would have been channeled to swing the narrative in your favor. Kudos to you, you weren’t trying to milk the situation, neither were you thinking of the mileage those videos will accumulate. You see, perception is reality.

IKEA Founder Ingvar Kamprad Is Dead

IKEA Founder Ingvar Kamprad Is Dead
IKEA founder Ingvar Kamprad, who was worth $40 billion by some estimates, has died aged 91.
Kamprad died on Saturday at his home in Smaland, in southern Sweden, the chain's Swedish unit, IKEA Sverige, said on Twitter on Sunday. He died peacefully following a short illness, it said.
"He will be much missed and warmly remembered by his family and IKEA staff all around the world," the company said.
"Ingvar Kamprad was a great entrepreneur of the typical southern Swedish kind, hardworking and stubborn, with a lot of warmth and a playful twinkle in his eye," IKEA said in a press release.
The Swedish entrepreneur was notorious for having been almost comically thrifty. He was known to be frugal in all he did, including buying his clothes at flea markets. There are also reports that he always waited until he was traveling in third world countries to get a haircut, so it would be cheaper.
Other ways his frugality played out include reports that he had planned to leave only about $300,000 of his fortune to his adopted daughter (reportedly , she said she was fine with that). He also drove a 1993 Volvo 240 (although he reportedly also had a Porsche). He left Sweden for Switzerland in the 1970s to avoid paying his home country's high taxes. He often ate cheap meals at IKEA.
It should be noted that Kamprand also claimed that he was worth far less than the $40 billion Bloomberg attributed to him, or even the $5 billion Forbes said he had--although that was apparently in the context of fighting his tax bill. One report said he claimed to have about $118 million.
Kamprad's life story is intimately linked to the company he founded at age 17 on the family farm. Kamprad, who was born on March 30, 1926, was a precocious entrepreneur who sold matchboxes to neighbors from his bicycle. He found that he could buy the matchboxes in bulk very cheaply from Stockholm and sell them at a low price but still make a good profit. From matches, he expanded to selling fish, Christmas tree decorations, seeds and later ballpoint pens and pencils.
He soon moved away from making sales calls and began advertising in local newspapers and operating a makeshift mail order catalog. He distributed his products via the local milk van, which delivered them to the nearby train station.
In 1950, Kamprad introduced furniture, pieces produced by manufacturers in the forests close to his home, into his catalog. After the positive response he received, he decided to discontinue all other products and focus on low-priced furniture.
Kamprad started IKEA in 1950, expanding the small retail operation he'd set up in his hometown of Smaland, Sweden via mail order--and adding furniture that would be shipped to customers' homes and assembled in order to keep prices low.
"It is in the nature of Smaland to be thrifty," Kamprad said in an interview a few years ago, celebrating his 90th birthday. "I don't think I'm wearing anything that wasn't bought at a flea market."


'I Want To Show People What South Africans Are Really Made Of' - Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters

Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters could not wait to indulge in some of her mom's  chicken curry the moment she got home last week.
Demi-Leigh, who has been living it up in the States since she scooped the Miss Universe crown in November touched down in Mzansi last Wednesday for a week of celebrations.
Speaking to TshisaLIVE at the Sun Met this past, Demi-Leigh said even though all eyes have been on her since she took the crown, she doesn't feel pressure to be anything but herself.
Demi-Leigh said she aimed to add some Mzansi finesse into everything she did around the world and to give people an authentic view of SA.
"It's been amazing so far, all I want to do is take South Africa to the world. I am Miss Universe, but I really prioritise representing South Africa. I am an ambassador for South Africa, I hope to take a little bit of my country everywhere I go and show people what South Africans are really made of."
Demi-Leigh stepped into her "new life" immediately after being crowned in November, and in addition to missing her pooch terribly, she said she missed the great Mzansi weather.
"The first thing I realised I missed about home was the summer weather, the African skies because you may take it for granted but all I see skyscrapers around me in New York. I also miss a good barbecue, I mean braai," she said before bursting into a cute laugh.
Even though she misses home terribly, Demi-Leigh has been living a dream come true, which has been a "daily inspiration" to her.
"I get to meet people I have looked up to since I was a little girl. I mean, I recently attended the Golden Globes recently. I was in the same room as Oprah, Angelina Jolie and so on, it is a daily inspiration."

FA Cup: Iheanacho Breaks Nigerian’s Scoring Record

Leicester City striker, Kelechi Iheanacho has broken former Nigeria international, Yakubu Aiyegbeni’s goal record in the FA Cup.
Iheanacho scored twice in Leicester City’s 5-1 thrashing of Peterborough on Saturday.
In doing so, the 21-year-old broke a record previously held by Aiyegbeni, as he took his tally in the prestigious competition to 9 goals in 9 appearances.
Aiyegbeni notched 8 goals in 20 appearances in the FA Cup wearing the jerseys of Reading, Middlesbrough and Portsmouth.
While it took the retired Nigeria international ten years to score eight goals in the FA Cup, Iheanacho became Nigeria’s leading scorer in the FA Cup after only two years.
Below are Nigeria’s top ten scorers in the FA Cup:

Kelechi Iheanacho – 9 goals, 9 matches
Yakubu Aiyegbeni – 8 goals, 20 matches
Victor Moses – 6 goals, 29 matches
Nwankwo Kanu – 6 goals, 24 matches
Victor Anichebe – 4 goals, 21 matches
Danny Shittu- 4 goals, 12 matches
Emmanuel Emenike – 4 goals, 6 matches
Kayode Odejayi – 3 goals, 26 matches
Obi Mikel – 3 goals, 32 matches
Victor Obinna, 3 goals, 3 matches

Meanwhile, relegation-threatened Newcastle are reportedly considering a move to persuade rejuvenated Leicester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho to dump their Premier League rivals for St. James’ Park in the January transfer window.
Newcastle, who crashed out of the FA Cup following their 3-0 defeat by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, are on the market for a proven striker before the January transfer window closes on Wednesday night. They are one point above the drop zone and are in danger of a second relegation in three years.
According to reports, they have had two bids rejected for Feyenoord’s Danish striker Nicolai Jorgensen, but the Dutch giants have demanded £20m to part with their prized asset.
With Feyenoord playing hardball over the 27-year-old Denmark forward, under-pressure Magpies manager Rafael Benitez has reportedly shifted his attention to Iheanacho as his plan B in case he fails to land Jorgensen.
Super Eagles forward Iheanacho, who has started just two Premier League games for the Foxes since joining from Man City last summer, hit the back of the net twice in Leicester’s 5-1 defeat of Peterborough in their FA Cup fixture against Peterborough at the ABAX Stadium on Saturday to take his tally to four in the competition this season.
The Mirror claimed on Sunday that Newcastle had renewed their interest in Iheanacho, who shunned them to join Leicester in a £25m deal in August.
