Tiwa Savage aborts SA show over xenophobic attacks

Top Nigerian songstress, Tiwa Savage has cancelled her performance at the upcoming DStv Delicious Festival in Johannesburg on 21 September.

Savage’s decision comes amid a spate of assaults and killings of foreigners by South Africans in the past two days.

Since Monday, rioters and looters have targeted foreigners and their businesses across Johannesburg and Pretoria. Foreign-owned shops have been looted and set alight. At least five people have been killed and dozens injured.

“I refuse to watch the barbaric butchering of my people in South Africa,” Tiwa Savage wrote on Twitter. “This is sick. For this reason, I will not be performing at the upcoming DStv Delicious Festival in Johannesburg on 21 September. My prayers are with all the victims and families affected by this.”

Burna Boy, who is supposed to perform at Afropunk Festival in Johannesburg on 30 and 31 December, also took Twitter to announce his displeasure with the situation in South Africa.

“I have not set foot in South Africa since 2017,” Burna Boy wrote on Twitter. “And I will not ever go to South Africa again for any reason until the South African government wakes the f*ck up and really performs a miracle because I don’t know how they can even possibly fix this.

“But today after watching the killing of my people in South Africa the same way we have all watched it happen a few times in the past. F*ck all that! I personally have had my own xenophobic experiences at the hands of South Africans.”

Another Nigerian artist, Wizkid, also voiced his concerns on social media. “Disheartening to watch these videos from my home,” he said. “You’re fighting the wrong war, fighting the wrong people. How do we walk around hating each other? Africa is one! We’re all the same people. Please don’t lose yourself! #SayNoToXenophobia One Love.”

But South African gqom artist Babes Wodumo seems to be supporting the violence against foreigners. “Africa is one yama simba [nonsense], Nigerians must go. Kumanje [right now] women are forced into prostitution kwi [on] Instagram,” she tweeted.

She also wrote: “Nigerians need to leave South Africa. Everything would be smooth without them.”

In response to Babes Wodumo, Nigerian musician Yemi Alade said: “You don’t deserve any love from Africa as a whole. You are a big disappointment to yourself. To encourage negativity and violence in troubled times like this when Africans need to unite. You need a brain reset and a ban from going to any African country.”

Popular South African rapper Cassper Nyovest said: “There’s so much going on. I don’t even know where to start but my country, it’s women and children are disappearing by the day. Our fellow African brothers are being killed and some people are justifying it. It’s scary, sad and it’s wrong. Something needs to happen.”

Meanwhile, Mlindo the Vocalist says he is worried about performing in Zimbabwe at the weekend. “I’m supposed to travel to Zimbabwe this weekend, but I fear for my life since I am South African. My country is doing so much harm to our brothers and sisters I have no choice but to wonder what lies in another African country as an African,” he said.

Rihanna’s unnamed film sells for $25m to Amazon

American giant multinational tech company, Amazon has purchased global rights to Peter Berg’s documentary about Rihanna, a Barbadian R&B star, for $25 million.

 

The firm, which specializes in cloud computing, digital streaming, e-commerce, and artificial intelligence, purchased the project shortly after Apple’s similar $25 million deal with Billie Eilish, a US songwriter.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the project would offer “an unfiltered look” into Rihanna’s life” and provide a glimpse into her evolution as one of the world’s most well-known pop artists in a video spanning more than 1,200 hours.

Describing the experience working on the project, Berg was quoted to have said, “To go travel with Rihanna around Europe, and Rihanna is surrounded by girls. We were in France. She was going to do a concert on Bastille Day.

“And that truck driver who killed all those people plowed through them right in front of our hotel. So even in me trying to do something light, I had a very, very front-row seat to something that horrific.”

The American producer’s forthcoming project with Rihanna would be coming after the duo had previouslywork on Universal’s ‘Battleship’, a military science fiction action film that is loosely based on the board game of the same name.

How I dated too seriously, did naive things at 20 - Toke Makinwa reveals

Popular Nigerian on-air-personality Toke Makinwa, has sais she dated too seriously when she was in her 20s.

 

Sharing in a recent episode of her Toke Moments, a vlog show where the 35-year old OAP leverages on her personal experiences to offer lifestyle advice to fans, the OAP said she would re-live such experiences if given a second chance.

“Dear 20-year -old me, all you wanted to was to grow up, wear makeup, hang out with girls. You wanted to rush life. And then you realize that, as you grow older, you make the dumbest mistakes; look back asking, ‘what was I even thinking!’” she said.

“Dear 20-year-old me, don’t date too seriously. Meet people, go on dates, kiss boys. I feel like, when I was 20, I dated too seriously. It was like, ‘this relationship must lead to marriage!’

“I don’t really blame myself. When you look at how we grew up, women were raised to eventually be ‘someone’s wife.’ You never really think that your degree or what you’re doing with life mattered.”

“Some parents even made jokes like, ‘you’ll marry one day and be somebody’s wife. Is that how you’ll be when you’re in your husband’s house?’ Then, you begin to put so much pressure on yourself!”

Addressing 20-year-olds currently facing the dilemma of choosing a definite career path, those struggling to find self-worth, or grappling with unstable relationships, she urged that they breathe and explore.

Tonto Dikeh busted by Instagram user for faking Dubai speaking engagement

Tonto Dikeh has been exposed by an Instagram User after she claimed to have spoken at an event in Duba

The Nollywood actress had shared pictures of herself on a podium. In the pictures, the actress supposedly looked like she was speaking to an audience at a conference organized by Modul University Dubai.

But an Instagram user who took a closer look at the pictures said that the chairs were empty and it was just a facade.

He wrote ;

Tonto attends a conference, hangs around a conference hall after presentation is over, poses on the podium speaking to an empty room with imaginary audience (zoom picture) using powerpoint presentation of the last speaker, thanks the university for an amazing experience.

Now this is what we call packaging. You wonder how these foundations make their money? They have to package pictures, spin images to seem like what they are not, present all these as evidence to a big funding individual/organisation and get the fundings they need to continue their expensive living.

She has been introduced to people in that line of work, now go through her page and start noticing, she posts old charity pictures with disabled, aged etc. Shouting out about 10000 smiles for kids in Nigeria. I tell you they have found a mugu and now packaging the thing for him.

Snapping pics with foreigners, making it seem like a deal is being closed and finally today unveiled a foundation in her son’s name. All na format. If you know, you know. All these hustle to be able to afford a few fake designer bag and clothes”.

50 Cent accuses Oprah Winfrey of shielding white men in sexual assault cases

Popular American rapper, 50 Cent has accused Oprah Winfrey of targeting black men accused of sexual assault while turning a blind eye on White men accused of the same.

The music entertainment entrepreneur took to Instagram to make his allegations, sharing a photo of Oprah with her one-time good friend Russell Simmons, who has been accused of sexual assault.

The rapper said that Oprah and her best friend Gale King usually create documentaries about Black men accused of sexual assault and these documentaries are usually the “death blow” that makes them “guilty till proven innocent.” He pointed out they do not do this to White men who have been accused of sexual assault.

 

Het wrote:

I don’t understand why Oprah is going after black men. No Harvey Weinstein, No Epstein, just Michael Jackson and Russell Simmons this shit is sad. Gale hit R. Kelly with the death blow documentary. Every time I hear Michael Jackson I don’t know whether to dance or think about the little boys’ butts. These documentaries are publicly convicting their targets, it makes them guilty till proven innocent.”

Harvey Weinstein offers $25million settlement to his accusers

Movie producer Harvey Weinstein is offering a $25 million settlement that could settle most of his sexual assault case.

The American producer has been accused of sexual assault, harassment, and misconduct by several women, including movie, stars Lupita Nyong’oAngelina JolieGwyneth Paltrow, and Salma Hayek.

In 2018, his film production company, Weinstein Co., declared bankruptcy.

Variety reports that “the settlement would also resolve the class action case against him and his board of directors in accusations of a pattern of sexual misconduct”.

Under the deal, the insurance companies for the Weinstein Co. would pay the victims with the most serious claims $500,000 apiece. A larger pool of claimants would split the balance of the funds. The deal (which was first reported by the New York Times) has been hammered out with the assistance of the New York attorney general’s office, must still be approved by the judge overseeing the Weinstein Co. bankruptcy case.

And “at least four” plaintiffs are not interested in the settlement, and “at least three” are expected to oppose.
