3. South Africa: Master KG speaks on comments about his supposed monotonous sound
Master KG has hit back at trolls who say his music is monotonous. On social media, the “Jerusalema” hitmaker said brands always stick to tried and tested recipes. “Those who say my beats sound the same, do you expect KFC to taste like Nando’s? Naa” he said.
Despite the hate, Master KG has stated that he would continue to celebrate his achievements boldly and openly because not everyone appreciates the pinnacles he’s reached in his career.

World-renowned author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is trending in Nigeria after making a speech at the annual general conference of the Nigerian Bar Association, where she said that Nigerians were “starved of heroes” and that young people did “not find people to look up to anymore.” She also touched on Nigeria’s ongoing security challenges, such as the kidnapping-for-ransom crisis.
“Nigeria is in disarray. Things are hard and getting harder by the day. We can’t be safe when there is no rule of law,” she said. Online, people have supported Adichie’s speech. Back in July, Adichie announced she was backing Labour Party candidate Peter Obi to become the next president of Nigeria, saying she “cannot wait” to cast her vote for him in elections next year.

Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel has been charged by the FA because of his comments regarding referee Anthony Taylor after his side’s 2-2 draw with Tottenham on August 14. The manager suggested after the Premier League match that the official should not be trusted to referee games involving the Blues. The London derby at Stamford Bridge involved several controversial incidents, with Tuchel insisting that both of Tottenham’s goals should have been disallowed — one for a foul on Kai Havertz in the build-up and the other for Cristian Romero appearing to pull Marc Cucurella’s hair. This new charge comes after the Blues boss had already been fined and given a suspended ban by the FA for his involvement in tussles with Spurs boss Antonio Conte during and after the match.
