Shatta Wale Begs Davido For Collabo!!!

Ghanaian singer Shatta Wale and Nigerian afropop star Davido are in the process of ‘cooking’ a hit song to take over the airwave.

In a tweet, the two artists are in a chat discussing how to ‘release’ a song.

“Somebody should tell @iam_Davido if he doesn’t do my song, I will take the “O” from the David and see if he fly again to Atlanta ..they will think he was the one that killed Goliath and immigration will catch him,” he said and ended it with mocking emojis.

Davido has replied, and his message is to congratulates Shatta Wale.

DJ Zinhle defends Pearl Thusi as she hits against claims that her light skin bags her jobs

Pearl Thusi has once again had to come out and defend herself from critics who believe she only gets gigs because of her skin colour.

The star launched into a lengthy rant on social media on Wednesday after someone name-dropped her in a conversation about Sho Madjozi winning a BET.

One of the comments claimed that Sho had only won the award because of her light skin and then pointed to Pearl as an example of another celeb who had attained success only because she had a light complexion.

"If she (Sho) were dark, no one would entertain her talent, which is not really there to begin with if you think about it. Just like my homegirl Pearl Thusi = no talent," wrote the user.

Pearl was alerted to the post and lost it, giving the man a piece of her mind.

"And 15 years of hard work I've put in means jack sh*t here. It's incredible how your entire being can all come down to your skin colour. I dare them to say this about the likes of Beyonce, Diana Ross, Angela Davis. As if there wasn't an Aretha Franklin, Nina Simone or Miriam Makeba"

She added that anyone who had a problem with her skin colour could "go and suck it".

"Everyone who thinks the only merit I have in my career is skin colour can all go suck it. Keep using my skin colour as a comfort for your own failures. Niyanya. Tsek.

"When people want what you have, and have no idea how you got it, they'll find a ridiculous reason to justify their lack through something that is beyond their and your control. When you have what people want, they'll find any reason to comfort themselves by disregarding your merit to success."

The star claimed her entire life had been spent defending her skin colour and, as a child, she sometimes hated how she looked.

She said she loved going to America because she wasn't judged for her skin tone and was simply seen as black.

Pearl said she had lost out to darker-skinned women, but refused to be bullied to make others "comfortable" about their own failures.

The comments sparked a massive conversation on social media about colourism, with many defending Pearl.

Among those was her BFF, DJ Zinhle, who said Pearl's success came from her hard work and not her skin tone.

"I don't think I know anyone who works as hard as Pearl Thusi does. Say whatever you need to say about her success but the girl works damn hard. Also, this tweet is not a debate, miss me with your opinions. People can be so mean man. Stop."

Sho also weighed in, claiming colonialism had given people the idea that beauty was found in lighter skin. She challenged that belief and said she would always stand against discrimination based on skin tone.

"I’m great at what I do, I’m smart as hell, and I work harder than anyone I know. I’m unique and I represent a culture that continues to be mocked.

"I can't be expected to stop being great because colorism exists. But I can try to use my platform to speak out against colorism, I MUST speak out when I see people being treated unfairly because of color and I can try to amplify the voices of talented dark skinned women."

Liverpool agree deal to sign Sepp van den Berg

Liverpool have agreed a deal with PEC Zwolle for the transfer of Sepp van den Berg, which will be completed in July subject to international clearance.

The 17-year-old defender has finalised terms on a long-term contract with the Reds after an agreement was reached with the Eredivisie club.

Van den Berg told “It’s just an amazing feeling.

“It is, for me, the biggest club in the world and it’s a dream come true. I am really excited.

“I’ve seen what kind of players from the Academy grew into the first team here. It is unbelievable, especially when this kind of big club does that.

“Of course, the trainer [Jรผrgen Klopp] is a great guy and one of the reasons they are successful – and also one of the reasons I came here.

“I think this is the best place for me to grow and hopefully play a lot of games here.”

Van den Berg made 15 appearances in the Dutch top flight last season, helping Zwolle to a 13th place finish.

Fake hair! Fake nails! Tanasha Donna trolled for being fake

Diamond Platinumz´ Kenyan lover, Tanasha Donna gets it rough after being trolled for living a fake lifestyle.

With all humility, the beauty queen takes to social media to prove someone wrong before she realizes she might have stepped on the wrong toes.

Seemingly trying to prove a point against Diamond´s exes, the likes of Zari Hassan, she strongly articulates:

    I was born to be authentic and REAL.

    Not to fake perfection and certain lifestyles to prove a point.

As Chibu comments:


According to the radio personality, she is real and authentic to the very last regardless of who is in her life.

Recently, Diamond´s baby mama, Zari Hassan has been slammed for flaunting fake wealth and high-end lifestyle, one that Tanasha believes she is an exception of.

However, her caption might have been right but the photo tagging along was just a contrary.

Clad in a jumpsuit and a long extension that makes her look like a diva, is it real?

The commercial model has it rough after fans slam her for living and preaching a fake!

    Your hair is fake though ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”. I’m just saying…! ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ

    don’t forget the nails

    That’s right.., Fake nails too. You see what I’m talking about๐Ÿคท‍♀️. Thank you very much Dear

    It all requires money my dear with the little u hv atleast u managed to fake the hair and nails.

    no money ๐Ÿ’ฐ she thinks faking is easy, why is she faking Card B

    It requires money to fake things or prove points. # take notes

    @tanashadonna has fake hair, fake nails and she turns around and say she doesn’t live fake life..all those designer bags Lui buttons and Guccis sold in Tz and Kenya are please lie to pple bout it..and if anyone is aunthentic can plagiarize other pple’s art like many musicians do.

    talk about hypocrisy, her captions should just be empty and not lie to us. We are done

@nohno_kayPlus wanting to be Cardi B and copying her style of dressing isn’t that fake? If she wants to be authentic then remove the fake nails, fake hair or don’t hold the fake Gucci and Lui Vitton or fake Rolex watch

Whats on your head if not FAKE HAIR….embrace the fakeness everyone has if not nails then hair if not that the personality ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

However, there are those who blatantly disagree with her:

    forever and ever

Team Zari tulivyo na roho mbaya utaona tu comment zetu za kijinga Mwaka huu Tanasha utatuua kwa presha team zari ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

Prezzo cautions Jaguar following his recent xenophobic outburst

Kenyan artists are not sharing the same thoughts as Starehe Member of Parliament Charles ‘Jaguar’ Kanyi who urged Kenyans recently to chase away foreigners taking over their business.

Several artists have bashed Jaguar’s comments saying that he should stop inciting war against our neighbors.

“If you asses our markets, Ugandans and Tanzanians have taken over our businesses… now we are saying enough is enough. If a 24-hour ultimatum is not enough for them to be deported, we will remove them and we’ll beat them up and we will not fear anyone,” he was filmed saying.

Rapper Prezzo asked the singer turned MP to stop inciting a war and find better ways to handle the problem.

“My brother @jaguarkenya I do not know where to start but your talk was not pleasing at all. A leader is supposed to lead people in a good way and not by inciting war especially to our neighbors Tanzania and Uganda.”

He added:

“All of us are trying to make ends meet in other countries apart from kenya so your decision of giving the government 24 hours to remove all foreign employees was uncalled for. I pray that god gives you strength so that you can be a leader of prosperity. #rapcellency.”

3 dead at California Ford dealership after gunman who was fired returns to shoot dead 2 colleagues before killing himself

A disgruntled employee has shot dead two colleagues at a Ford dealership in the San Francisco Bay Area before turning the gun on himself.

Police received multiple 911 calls at about 6.03pm Tuesday evening after the shooter opened fire in the service department of the dealership in Morgan Hill, southeast of San Jose.

Doug MacGlashan, who was hired by the dealership for the day to train employees on new software, told KRON-TV that a parts department representative who had been fired that day apparently went outside, got a gun and returned to shoot the two employees.

The service and parts director 'had just fired a parts rep that he had said he was going to fire earlier in the day. And I guess the parts rep went outside, got a gun, went into the service and parts director's office and shot him', MacGlashan said.

Macglashan said the suspect wouldn't leave the premises after he was fired.

'About 10, 15 minutes later, gunshots,' he said. 'It's just scarier than hell. I'm not used to hearing gunshots, I'm not used to being around this type of violence. So it's just scary.'

The man also killed the parts manager, he said.

Youtube star found dead in river 36 hours after posting disturbing video on his channel

Missing YouTuber Desmond Amofah, known as “Etika”, has been found dead in a New York river after an eight-minute video he posted sparked grave fears for his wellbeing.

The 29-year-old was found by police overnight a week after he went missing.

The New York Police Department confirmed Mr Amofah’s body was discovered in the East River after responding to a public call about a deceased person floating in the water near South Street Seaport.

Mr Amofah was reported missing on the night of June 19, some 36 hours after his troubling video message was shared online.

Authorities said the investigation was ongoing, and his cause of death was not confirmed.

Mr Amofah first sparked fears among his fans after posting a video titled “I’m sorry” on his

YouTube channel TR1Iceman that expressed suicidal thoughts.

“I shouldn’t have pushed so many people away. Now, I’ve got nobody,” Mr Amofah said in the video. “I’m sorry to those of you who I betrayed. I’m sorry for leaving such a stained legacy.”

In the video, he also warned against the dangers of social media while going into detail about his struggle with mental health.

“It can give you an image of what you want your life to be and get blown completely out of proportion,” he said. “It consumed me.”

YouTube has since taken down the eight-minute clip, which was likely removed for violating the platform’s suicide policy.

The policy bans “content that promotes self-harm”.

Strip Club Fight: Cardi B pleads not guilty to charges

On Tuesday, Cardi B pleaded not guilty to two felony counts, as well as a handful of lesser counts, stemming from her alleged involvement in two strip club altercations last August.

“Not guilty, sir, honor,” she said. This appearance by Cardi B, whose legal name is Belcalis Almanzar, marks her legal drama’s shift into far more serious territory.

On Friday, a grand jury indicted her on felony attempted assault and lower-level counts such as harassment, conspiracy, and reckless endangerment. Before the indictment, she had been facing misdemeanor assault and reckless-endangerment charges.

Cardi B who previously said no to a plea deal that could have kept her out of jail was initially accused of throwing a glass bottle and alcohol during an alleged altercation at Angels NYC Strip Club in the early hours of August 29.

According to prior court documents, sisters Sarah and Rachel Wattley were working as bartenders at the club that evening. The initial allegation was that a brawl had broken out after someone in Cardi B's party threw a drink at them.

Kylie Jenner sets the record straight after Alex Rodriguez claimed all Kylie talked about at the Met Gala was "how rich she is"

Kylie Jenner has set the record straight after Alex Rodriguez claimed all she spoke about at the Met Gala was "how rich she is".

The baseball legend opened up during an interview with Sports Illustrated. Speaking to the magazine for its "Where Are They Now?" issue, the 43-year-old who is engaged to Jennifer Lopez, shared some details about his experience at the 2019 Met Gala, including his private conversation with Kylie Jenner.

A-Rod recalled sitting at a table with A-list celebs such as Kylie Jenner, Kendall Jenner, Donatella Versace, Idris Elba and wife Sabrina Dhowre.

"We had a great table," he told the publication.

"We had Kylie and Kendall. And we had an Asian gentleman from Rich Asians, the lead. Kylie was talking about Instagram and her lipstick, and how rich she is."

However, Kylie said A-Rod wasn't telling the truth.

She said on Twitter after A-Rod's interview made headlines: "Umm no i didn't. We only spoke about Game of Thrones."

Shortly after Kylie tweeted denying A-Rod's claims, A-Rod responded to Kylie on social media.

He quote-tweeted Kylie's tweet and added: "OMG that's right @KylieJenner. It was me talking about you and your makeup line and how much my girls love you."

Alleged Arms importation: Ex-Governor Ibikunle Amosun breaks silence

Senator Ibikunle Amosun, former governor of Ogun State, has denied illegally importing massive cache of AK47 assault rifles and ammunition into the country.

It was widely reported yesterday June 25th that the former governor cum Senator, imported, without appropriate permits, 1,000 AK47 assault guns and two million rounds of ammunition, and handed them over to the state Commissioner of police few days before his tenure expired.

A statement issued on Tuesday night by his media aide, Mr Rotimi Durojaiye, said though the former governor admitted handing over some armoured vehicles and light weapons to the Ogun State Police Command at the twilight of his government, he vehemently denied that guns were involved in the handing over exercise. According to him, he imported the security hardware with the approval of the Presidency, under Goodluck Jonathan in 2012.

Read the statement below

    1. The above story by Premiumtimes, an online News portal, represented everything but the true and factual accounts regarding a routine exercise that took place at the Ogun State Governors Office, Abeokuta in the morning of Tuesday, 28 May, 2019 as part of Handing Over processes and formalities from the then out-going to the in-coming Administration. It is rather interesting and ironic that a routine, bona fide and patriotic disposition of the Senator Ibikunle Amosun, CON, FCA has been so savagely twisted in a premeditated effort by Premium Times and its sponsors to stand logic on its head. It is important to clarify that NOT A SINGLE AK 47 RIFLE was handed over at the event.

    2. Senator Ibikunle Amosun would have loved to ignore this report for the simple reason that it is a matter for the remit of the Police and Security agencies. But, that course of action will appear disrespectful to well-meaning Stakeholders and inquirers on the matter. Secondly, the good people of Ogun State and Nigerians at large deserve to know the exact circumstances of the Handing -Over of these security items.

    3. It is important to stress that this was not the first time that Senator Amosun, whilst in office as Governor and former Chief Security of Ogun State would be handing over security assets to the Police. The particular exercise of 28 May, 2019 was done openly in the full glare of the public and the media to ensure accountability, guarantee transparency and judicious use of the assets.

    4. In May 2011 when Senator Amosun assumed office, the biggest challenge that confronted Ogun State was insecurity. Political assassinations, unnatural and unexplained deaths were prevalent. In Ogun East for instance, which comprised of 9 of the 20 LGAs at the time, the entire business and financial institutions architecture had become comatose as no bank or such institutions could open for business in the entire Senatorial district. Cultism, Kidnapping for ransom, violent crime and tertiary institutions related criminality stank to high heavens. Ogun West was totally ravaged by cross border banditry, unbridled smuggling and economic sabotage. Ogun Central, though relatively calmer, had its fair share of the very low security index that our State had sunk at the time. No resident, in good conscience, could sleep at night with two eyes closed. In the World Bank Ease of Doing Business, 2010, Ogun State was ranked as Number 35 out of 36 as industries and corporations fled the State in droves. Senator Ibikunle Amosun took the firm view that nothing would thrive in an atmosphere of insecurity. He therefore decided, that early, to confront the myriad security challenges headlong and thereby open up Ogun State to private investment under a secured environment.

    5. The SIA administration convened a security Parley amongst all stakeholders. The Parley gave rise to the Ogun State Security Trust Fund (STF) under the leadership of a former Nigerian National Security Adviser. The deliberations and recommendations of the STF and the far-reaching initiatives of Government have delivered consistent peace of mind, economic prosperity and social progress for all within the borders of Ogun State and even beyond since 2012. We note with immense pride that the same Ogun State, generally regarded as a back-water State in terms of security rallied round strongly to emerge as one of the most peaceful and the best place to work and live in Nigeria.

    6. The SIA administration sought help from the then President Goodluck Jonathan led Federal Government. First, we sought and got approval to set up “OP MESA” for Ogun State. We followed this up with the specialized QRS unit. We committed substantial funds into procurement of hard and soft ware, and, myriad security assets to decisively combat our security challenges. We got all necessary approvals from the Office of the National Security Adviser to procure the 13 units of Armoured Personnel Carriers (APCs), the 1000 units of AK 47 rifles, 2 Million rounds of ammunition,1000 units of Bullet proof vests and 500 bullet proof helmets and other security communication gadgets. Ogun State not only got approval to import these essential assets, the Federal administration under President Goodluck Jonathan, gave all requisite approvals to assist the State. The Federal Government through the Office of the National Security Adviser (NSA) issued the State the End User Certificate Serial Number 000001123 dated 5th of March, 2012. The Federal Ministry of Finance also granted Import Duty Exemption Certificate through a letter from the Honourable Minister of Finance and Coordinating Minister of the Economy with Reference Number BO/R.10260/S.4/T.4/22 dated 10th April, 2012. Indeed the supplier was an accredited agent of the Nigeria Police Force nominated for the job by the Force who also monitored and supervised the transaction. The security materials were cleared through the Murtala Muhammed Airport and confirmed through Nigeria Customs Memo NCS/MMAC/012/S.1. The materials were publicly handed over to the Inspector General of Police MD Abubakar on 22nd April, 2012 wherein he acknowledged that “I have served in all six geographical zones of this country. I have never seen the kind of equipment you are donating to security agents today. This is the first of such maximum donation I have ever seen since I have been serving as a police officer”.

    7. We would like to educate Premium Times that there are strict procedures for the purchase, handling, storage and documentation of security merchandise. We are satisfied that extant approvals, regulations and protocols were observed and complied with in this instance. Without going into the details and thereby breaching conventions, suffice to say categorically that the AK47 rifles were supplied directly to the Nigeria Police, Ogun State Command. The rest of the merchandise were securely kept in the approved designated armoury within the Government House precincts under police surveillance as it obtains in most Government Lodges, to guarantee exclusive use of the materials in Ogun state. These are not matters for the public. Premium Times is advised to approach other States where such conventions and protocols exit. The suggestion that the security assets were quickly handed over to the Police in order that the new administration will not know about it is laughable because the current Governor of Ogun State, Prince Dapo Abiodun, MFR was the main supplier of some of the assets in question, notably, the Armoured Personnel Carriers (APCs).

    8. We say with pride that our substantial investment and commitment to security paid off. Ogun State won several international and local security awards. Companies returned to our shores in even higher numbers. Thankfully, under Senator Amosun’s watch, Ogun State did not record any unexplained death or political assassination throughout. Notably, Ogun State holds the record as one of the most peaceful States during the 2019 general elections and is now the investors destination of choice and industrial capital of Nigeria.

    9. As a Governor who understood and took the responsibilities of his office seriously, Senator Amosun was mindful to account for and properly hand over the remainder of the security items to the Police and the new Administration. On 28 May, 2019, the last of the APCs, and all other security assets under the custody of Ogun State Government were passed over to the Police in full glare of the media and general public. We believed that was the surest way to prevent these assets getting into the wrong hands.

    10. We assure our well wishers, Stakeholders and residents of Ogun State that we did what was best in their interest as the Chief Security Officer of the State. All contrary insinuations, twisting of facts and deliberate misinformation should be discarded. We encourage Premium Times and all genuine inquirers to approach the Police , Regulatory and Enforcement agencies for any other details they may want.

    11. It is interesting to note that a public outing held on 28th May 2019 is generating so much interest three weeks after the event.

Super Eagles call off their strike in Egypt over unpaid allowances

Nigeria’s Super Eagles have suspended their training strike over unpaid bonuses at the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt following last-minute intervention by top football officials. 

The team finally agreed to train in Alexandria, 30 minutes after schedule, after the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) promised to pay a win bonus from their 1-0 victory over Burundi on Saturday, by the end of the week. 

NFF spokesman Ademola Olajire said “the matter has been resolved”, conceding that funds for the tournament had arrived late.

“The NFF received part of the money meant for the tournament today and is in the process of converting it to dollars to pay the players and officials. The only money they’re owed is the win-bonus for the Burundi match” he said.

The bonuses were expected to be paid by the NFF after Saturday’s game ended. Officials close to the team, who spoke under anonymity, told AFP that following reassurances from the NFF “the team captain spoke to the players, asking them to show some understanding after which the team agreed to train”. 

The players had earlier boycotted the official pre-match conference.  Other NFF officials disclosed that the players have been paid a daily training allowance of $200-a-player from June 2 to June 30.

Lionel Messi look-alike denies conning 23 women into sleeping with him

Reza Parastesh, who is known as the Iranian Messi, moved to deny the allegations made in Spanish publication Marca and on social media.

In a video post on Instagram, Parastesh said: 'Hi friends, a piece of false news about me is trending on social media with regards to me sleeping with 23 women because they thought I was Lionel Messi. Please do not play with people's reputation and credibility.

'We are all aware of the fact that if it actually happened to anyone, there would be some complaints and it would lead to my prosecution. That would be a disaster and a calamity of international proportion. If this news was true, I would be in jail right now.'

'Do not believe it, it is not true. I am going to do everything to fight this legally and make sure my name is cleared.' 

Parastesh, 26, was informed of the allegations earlier this week and he has been trying to clear his name since.

He added that the experience has been made worse because of how quickly the news has spread.

'The news is spreading in the Muslim countries and it has been a disaster,' he said. 'I was severely harassed because it released the whole world on me. My family also harassed me, but the people's attack was more influential.'

'I'm not going to the f*cking White House' – Megan Rapinoe remains defiant on national anthem stance

Megan Rapinoe has claimed she is “not going to the f*cking White House" if the United States win the Women's World Cup.

Defending champions USA face hosts France in the World Cup quarter-finals in Paris on Friday after defeating Spain 2-1 in the round of 16 on Monday.

Asked if a visit to the White House would be on the cards should USA retain their title, star Rapinoe told Eight by Eight: "I'm not going to the f*cking White House.

"No. I'm not going to the White House. We're not going to be invited."

Rapinoe was inspired by former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick's protest bringing attention to police brutality and racial inequality.

The 33-year-old became the first white athlete to kneel during the national anthem before a sporting event in 2016.

Rapinoe continues to protest the national anthem in her own way at the World Cup by standing in silence while other members of the national team place their hands over their hearts and sing ‘The Star-Spangled Banner.’

United States president Donald Trump responded to her actions on Tuesday, telling The Hill when asked if Rapinoe should protest during the national anthem: “No. I don't think so.”

Trump went on to say he loves watching women's soccer, adding: "They're really talented.”

The 41-year-old left the Serie A champions at the end of his contract in June 2018 after 17 years with the club, opting to move to France and sign a one-year deal with PSG.

He recently announced his intention to leave Paris , despite being offered a contract extension, and Goal can confirm that the Italian is set to make an unexpected return to Juventus.

Buffon’s return will see him act as back-up to first-choice keeper Wojciech Szczesny, whose stock has increased after cementing his place as one of Serie A’s finest between the sticks.

Although the move seemed unthinkable only a few days ago, the Italian’s relationship with Juventus club president Andrea Agnelli has helped to push the move through with Buffon having already agreed a one-year contract.

“Definitely, Ighalo is very fit and he will start the game against Guinea,” Rohr told media at the Alexandria Stadium.
