Cardi B has decided to take a break from social media after her fans were not happy that she was not attending the 2022 Grammy Awards. According to reports, the “WAP” rapper deleted her Twitter and Instagram accounts on Sunday evening, April 3, but before pulling the plug, the 29-year-old called out her fans.

Prior to deactivating her Instagram, the Bronx rapper headed to IG Live to address the situation even further, according to further reports. “Why would I go to the awards for?” she asked in the eight-minute clip. “Do I have any new music? Why would I show up with one nomination?”

The music star won the Best Global Music Album for her critically acclaimed album, “Mother Nature.” After she shared a photo of herself with her award, several disgruntled people who weren’t happy about their favorites losing the award took to her comment section, where they made derogatory comments.

4. Kenya’s worsening fuel crisis threatens to shut down the economy

Kenya has been hit hard by an unprecedented fuel shortage that is threatening to grind the country’s economy to a halt. The crisis has seen a number of fuel stations shut down, tens of travelers and motorists stranded, prices of goods going up across the country and public transport vehicles grounded. Thousands of jobs and businesses are at stake as citizens feel the pinch of the shortage that has lasted for about a week.

Andrew Kamau, the principal secretary of the Ministry of Petroleum and Mining, attributed the crisis to the delay in the payment of 13 billion shillings (about 112.95 million U.S. dollars) subsidy funds to oil marketers by the government. Kenya introduced a fuel subsidy scheme on April 14, 2021, that sees the government pay oil marketers a certain percentage of fuel costs to cushion the public and stabilize the market. Joseph Karanja, the chairman of Kenya Independent Petroleum Distributors Association (KIPEDA), said the delay in paying oil marketers has seen many of them with no money to buy new stocks.

5. Former Man United boss, Louis Van Gaal reveals cancer diagnosis

Netherlands manager Louis van Gaal has revealed that he has an “aggressive” form of prostate cancer. The 70-year-old made the announcement on the Dutch TV show Humberto on Sunday. The coach says he has had radiation treatment 25 times so far. Van Gaal said that he did not tell the Netherlands players of his illness and says his cancer is not terminal. He said: “I think you don’t tell people you work with like that because it might influence their choices, their decisions. So I thought they shouldn’t know. Cardi B Social Media

“You don’t die from prostate cancer, at least not in 90 percent of the cases. It is usually other underlying diseases that kill you. But I had a pretty aggressive form, got irradiated 25 times. Then you have a lot of management to do in order to go through life.”
