1. Nigeria: DJ Cuppy withdraws lawsuit against Israel DMW
Popular Nigerian disc jockey, Florence Otedola, also known as DJ Cuppy has withdrawn the lawsuit filed against Davido Worldwide Music member, Israel Afeare. Taking to her Twitter page on Friday, DJ Cuppy said that she no longer wants to proceed with the lawsuit following the public apology made by Israel. The disc jockey also seized the opportunity to caution social media users on making unverified statements.
Her post reads: “Update: Following the public apology of Isreal Afeare, I have decided to no longer proceed with the lawsuit and have instructed my lawyers accordingly. As social media users, I hope we can all learn from this and ensure that we have valid facts before we speak on matters.”
2. Saweetie splits from Migos rapper Quavo
Saweetie and Quavo have officially called it quit. The rappers, who have been romantically linked since 2018, have broken up, with Saweetie announcing on Twitter Friday, “I’m single.” The “Best Friend” rapper also called out the way Quavo allegedly treated her behind closed doors.
According to Saweetie, she “emotionally checked out a long time ago” and has “walked away with a deep sense of peace and freedom.” Later that day, Quavo seemed to address their split without directly naming Saweetie. Saweetie simply replied: “Take care.”
3. South Africa: AKA fuels “lobola” rumors
Rapper AKA left the rumor mill turning at high speed on Thursday when he asked his fans to help him determine a cattle’s monetary value. The rapper recently popped the question to his girlfriend Nelli Tembe, and it has already been reported that he is well on his way to paying lobola for the woman of his dreams. In South Africa, lobola is a bride price, and traditionally, one paid with cattle.
While both AKA and Nelli have not confirmed the lobola talks, AKA’s question about how much a cow goes for these days was all the confirmation people needed to add to swirling rumors.
4. Ghana’s 2021 census scheduled for June 27
The Ghana Statistical Service (GSS) has scheduled the 2021 Population and Housing Census for Sunday, June 27, 2021. The census was expected to take place in 2020 but had to be rescheduled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Ahead of the exercise, the Vice-President, Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia, will today launch the countdown, dubbed “100 days to 2021 Population and Housing Census.”
The countdown is a series of activities that the GSS will roll out in the next 100 days to sensitize the public on the census. The Census Advisor to the Government Statistician, Mr. Kofi Agyeman-Duah, told the media that the GSS had made all the census preparations.
5. Tuchel assures wonderkid Anjorin of Chelsea’s future
Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has assured Tino Anjorin of his future with the Premier League club ahead of their FA Cup tie against Sheffield United on Sunday. The 19-year-old has been delivering impressive performances for the Blues U23 side, which have earned him four appearances for the senior side this season.
Tuchel has showered encomium on the midfielder and expressed his delight with his development at Stamford Bridge, advising him to be patient as he has got a great future with his side. “I got to know Tino, I did not know much of him, and I got to know him here. From the first day, I was very impressed because he is a very physical player. Tall guy, strong guy,” Tuchel said in a press conference. “He has the ability to keep the ball under pressure because he has the body for it. He has the physical ability to play and train with us at this level.”
