1. Future surprises fans with new mixtape announcement

On May 8, rapper Future used Twitter to share news about his new mixtape. He tweeted, “F**k yo’ album. S**t ain’t slappin’ like my MIXTAPE,” and then mentioned a possible release date and a new nickname, “May 10… Mixtape Pluto.” This announcement comes shortly after his recent collaboration with Metro Boomin on “WE STILL DON’T TRUST YOU,” a follow-up to their March release, “WE DON’T TRUST YOU.”

Both projects not only featured top-notch music but also made waves for their digs at Drake. Artists like Rick Ross, The Weeknd, ASAP Rocky, and Kendrick Lamar joined in, with Lamar’s disses leading to a notable conflict with Drake. Fans are anticipating Future’s upcoming mixtape and hoping it continues the streak of rap beef.

2. Rapper Skales to make acting debut in ‘Seeking Justice’

Nigerian rapper and singer Raoul John Njeng-Njeng, known as Skales, has entered the acting scene with his first film role in “Seeking Justice,” directed by JJC Skillz. Just hours before announcing this on Instagram on Tuesday, May 7, he shared a video showing his face with serious injuries like cuts on his head, temple, and the bridge of his nose, alarming his fans. He only added the caption, “THANK YOU JESUS.”

It turned out that the shocking video was just a promotional trick for his part in “Seeking Justice.” Later on Instagram, he explained and showed his excitement, saying, “THANK YOU JESUS for my first ever acting role in Nollywood! Y’all ain’t ready for #SeekingJusticeTheMovie directed by the legendary @jjcskillz.” He also thanked the visual effects artist Maryam Ndukwe O, and his fellow actors, Deyemi Okanlawon and Eso Dike.

3. King Promise announces new album

Ghanaian music star King Promise has shared exciting news on social media about his career progress, including finishing his much-awaited new album. He announced on his social media last Saturday, May 4, that his new album, “True To Self,” is set to be released, exciting his fans. He also shared his pride in making history on his tour in Asia and the huge success of his song “Terminator,” which has gathered over 215 million streams since its 2023 release.

King Promise took a moment to thank the producer, Killbeatz, for his amazing work on the beats that inspired “Terminator” and Dancegod Lloyd for creating the viral dance challenge for the song. He also thanked his team and loyal fans for their constant support, highlighting their crucial role in his achievements.

4. TikTok sues the United States government over potential ban

On May 7, TikTok sued the U.S. government over a new law that might lead to a nationwide ban of the app. This lawsuit was expected, as the company had previously warned it would take legal action after President Joe Biden signed the Protecting Americans from Foreign Adversary Controlled Applications Act. TikTok could be banned unless its parent company, ByteDance, sells it to a non-Chinese company by mid-January 2025 if they lose the lawsuit.

TikTok and ByteDance filed their lawsuit in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, arguing that the law violates the Constitution by limiting free speech and access to information. Their petition stated, “The ‘qualified divestiture’ the law requires for TikTok to keep operating in the U.S. is impossible to achieve — not commercially, technologically, legally, and definitely not within the 270 days the law demands.” They also claimed that by singling out TikTok, Congress went too far and violated the First Amendment.

5. Neymar sends message after providing food relief to Brazil following devastating floods

Al-Hilal star Neymar has sent food aid to the flood victims in Brazil. Heavy rains caused severe flooding across Brazil, resulting in nearly 85 deaths and displacing around 150,000 people, according to media reports. During this difficult time, Neymar helped by sending food to those in need and encouraging others to donate.

The 32-year-old posted a photo of an airplane loaded with food supplies headed for Brazil, stating in the caption that he usually doesn’t like to publicize his charitable actions because they are done from the heart, not for recognition. However, he stated that he shared the post to inspire more people to help. He thanked the pilots and everyone involved, mentioning he is praying for normalcy to return and that his father is also actively helping. Neymar is currently recovering from an ACL injury he sustained shortly after starting to play for Saudi Pro League team Al-Hilal last year.
