1. Nigeria: Davido sparks rumors of new girlfriend
Nigerian singer Davido has been captured in a recent photo kissing American Instagram model Mya Yafai.

In one of the photos, which were reportedly taken at a party, they both attended in the United States, the rumored couple locked lips.
These recent photos again hint that there might be trouble in Davido’s relationship with his fiance Chioma. A few weeks ago, Davido was filmed holding hands with Mya Yafai, which sparked speculations about his relationship with his fiance Chioma.
2. Barack Obama loses grandmother
Condolences are pouring in for the Obama family over the loss of the paternal family matriarch. Mama Sarah Onyango Obama, who was profiled after President Obama was elected in 2008, has passed away at 99.
The news was confirmed by Mama Sarah’s daughter Marsat Onyango who said her mother died at a hospital in Kisumu in Kenya. A family spokesperson shared that Mama Sarah had been sick for a week but did not die of COVID-19. Barack Obama who had been informed of her passing, released a statement on Twitter memorializing his grandma.
Mama Sarah was a change maker who used The Mama Sarah Obama Foundation to help provide food, education, school supplies, and basic medical needs to children who lost their parents and young girls.
3. South Africa: Black Coffee to raise $200,000 for SA creative arts students
International DJ sensation Black Coffee is on a mission to raise $200,000 for students in the creative arts field. While students protested over historical debt and fees earlier this month, musician Black Coffee questioned whether SA could crowdfund to help students. The star has put his money where his mouth is and joined the #FamTagYouIt campaign aimed at crowdfunding for creative undergraduate and graduate students with historical debt.
The project is a collaboration between Black Coffee’s F.A.M Academy with designer Laduma Ngxokolo, artist Nelson Makamo and Feenix, a public benefit organization launched in response to #FeesMustFall in 2017. They aim to reach the target in two weeks.
4. Ghana: President Akufo-Addo woos Spanish investors
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has called on the Spanish business community to consider Ghana as the investment destination of choice in West Africa. He said the country had, over the years, carved a niche for itself as the most peaceful and investment-friendly nation in the sub-region.
Spain’s presence in Africa in terms of business is minimal, compared to some other European countries. For this reason, the Spanish Prime Minister, Pedro Sánchez, said his country wanted to “turn this decade into the decade of Spain in Africa.”
5. Sergio Aguero to leave Manchester City at the end of season
Record goalscorer Sergio Aguero will leave Manchester City at the end of the season, the club has announced. The 32-year-old striker’s contract expires at the end of the season, and he has been told it will not be renewed. The Argentine, who signed from Atletico Madrid in 2011, has scored 257 goals in 384 appearances for the club. “With the guidance of the owners and the contributions of many players, we earned a place among the greatest of the world,” Aguero said.
He will be honored by a statue at Etihad Stadium, alongside title-winning captain Vincent Kompany and influential playmaker David Silva, who left the club in 2019 and 2020.
