Award-winning South African singer Elaine is living her best A-lister life in Los Angeles. This week Elaine was among several high-profile celebrities who were invited to Lori Harvey’s skincare range launch. Lori hosted some of the biggest names in Hollywood and friends as she launched SKN, her first skincare line. Elaine took to Instagram to share images from the evening launch, showcasing that she met American singer Normani and Lori.

The “You’re The One” hitmaker relocated to Los Angeles earlier this year, following in the footsteps of other South African stars like Nomzamo Mbatha and Thuso Mbedu. Last week it was announced that Elaine would form part of the roster of 54 artists, songwriters and producers selected to join the YouTube Black Voices Music Class of 2022.

4. Archbishop of Canterbury criticizes Ghana anti-LGBT bill

The Archbishop of Canterbury has said he is “gravely concerned” by a proposed law in Ghana, which would impose harsh penalties on the LGBT community. The bill is supported by the Anglican Church of Ghana, despite a previous agreement by all Anglican churches not to support discriminatory legislation. Rights groups say the bill is the “worst homophobic document ever.”

The bill seeks to include jail terms to up to a decade and force some to undergo “conversion therapy”, where attempts are made to change people’s sexuality. It also makes cross-dressing and public displays of same-sex affection punishable by fines or detention and makes the distribution of material deemed pro-LGBT by news organizations or websites illegal.

Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury and the symbolic head of Anglicans worldwide, said he would raise his concerns with the Anglican Archbishop of Ghana in the coming days.

5. Barcelona sack Koeman as head coach and offer role to Xavi

Barcelona has sacked Ronald Koeman as head coach following Wednesday’s defeat at Rayo Vallecano, while reports can confirm the role has now been offered to club legend Xavi. The loss left Barcelona in ninth place in the La Liga table, having won just four of their opening 10 league games. The Blaugrana have also struggled in the Champions League this term, which led to Koeman’s ouster after just over a season in charge.

Barca could soon have a replacement for Koeman as reports confirm that longtime midfielder and current Al Sadd head coach Xavi has been offered the job. Xavi has an exit clause with the Qatar side but it is understood that he wants to move to Barcelona, who are prepared to pay the fee needed to secure the 41-year-old.
