1. Cardi B debunks claims she’s releasing a beauty line

Cardi B hasn’t launched her own line of beauty products despite reports suggesting she did. A source close to the rapper told the media the stories about her supposed beauty line were false. Several articles and social media posts claimed she teamed with a company known as Delight Cosmeceutical Labs to create the Kulture Wave beauty line.

Outlets may have been fooled by a seemingly fake press release. The press release included quotes credited to Cardi B.

2. Rema’s ‘Calm Down’ enters top 15 of Billboard Hot 100

In the latest installment of the Billboard Hot 100, Nigerian superstar Rema reaches a new peak as he continues his impressive ascension on the chart. This week, Rema’s “Calm Down” reached No. 15 as it moved four places up from its No. 19 spot last week. The single enters its 29th week as it continues its impressive showing on the chart.

Since its release, Calm Down has enjoyed impressive success in the United States where it has surpassed a million units in sales which earned it an RIAA Platinum plaque. The single has also surpassed a billion streams across all platforms while becoming the most-watched Afrobeats video on YouTube.

3. South Africa: Boyz II Men is headed to South Africa later this year

Multi-award-winning music group Boyz II Men is coming to South Africa later this year. The tour will kick off in Cape Town on October 31 at the Grand Arena, GrandWest followed by Pretoria at the SunBet Arena, Time Square on November 2, and concluding in North West at the Superbowl in Sun City on November 4, 2023.

In a statement released, the group’s management earlier this week said the musicians were looking forward to coming to SA. “We are elated to finally kick off the tour in South Africa later this year. Boyz II Men promised their fans a killer live show shortly before the pandemic, and are keeping true to that promise now that it’s safe to do so. With three shows planned around the country, we look forward to delivering yet another quality production with this multiple award-winning music outfit,” said frontman Glen Netshipise.

4. Nigeria: INEC shifts governorship, state assembly elections to March 18

The Independent National Electoral Commission has postponed Nigeria’s governorship and state assembly elections till March 18. The exercise was previously scheduled to hold on March 11, but INEC, citing a logistics crisis stemming from BVAS configuration and transportation, said the election could not hold again as scheduled following a meeting of its executives on Wednesday evening.

“The elections were postponed to allow one more week for preparations,” an official familiar with the meeting told the press on Wednesday night. “We should be able to get everything in order before March 18.”

5. Bruno Fernandes to remain Man Utd vice-captain

Erik ten Hag has insisted he is happy for Bruno Fernandes to continue as Manchester United vice-captain, despite his behavior in their loss at Liverpool. Ten Hag has declared that Fernandes will remain United’s vice-captain despite the avalanche of criticism directed at the midfielder after the 7-0 loss to Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday. Fernandes is the second-choice skipper after official captain Harry Maguire, who has barely featured this season, but the likes of Casemiro and Marcus Rashford have also been tipped for the role. Ten Hag acknowledged that Fernandes made “mistakes” against Liverpool, but insists he remains a key member of his squad and has highlighted his overall contribution this season.

Pressed on whether Fernandes will retain the armband, Ten Hag told a press conference: “Yes, definitely. He’s playing a brilliant season, he’s had a really important role in why we’re in the position where we are he’s giving energy to the team, not only running a lot at the highest intensity but the right way and right direction. He’s coaching players, he’s an inspiration, but no one is perfect, everyone makes mistakes, we have to learn, he has to learn. He will because he’s intelligent. I’m happy to have Bruno Fernandes in the team and that he’s captain when Harry isn’t on the pitch.”

The Portuguese was fiercely criticized by former United skippers Gary Neville and Roy Keane for his body language during the game and there have been calls for him to be stripped of the captaincy. Fernandes was also seen pushing the assistant referee in the second half at Anfield, but the FA has confirmed that no retrospective punishment will be dished out.
