Amapiano superstar Focalistic has announced he will be lending his voice to help raise awareness about wildlife conservation as a global ambassador for Wild Aid. He shared the exciting news on Instagram, saying he will share the role with the likes of global stars David Beckham and Leonardo DiCaprio. “Famleee! Proud to announce I am the all new @wildaid global ambassador and I will be using my voice to support wildlife conservation and raise awareness to this important cause.”

4. Ethiopia’s Tigray war: Government declares humanitarian truce
Ethiopia’s government has declared a “humanitarian truce” in its 16-month conflict with forces from the northern Tigray region. The civil war has left more than five million people needing food aid, yet none has been delivered to Tigray since mid-December. The announcement follows a visit to Ethiopia by US Special Envoy for the Horn of Africa David Satterfield.
The Tigrayan forces have yet to respond to the government’s move. The head of the World Health Organization (WHO) Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, who is from Tigray, has described the situation there as “catastrophic” and accused the Ethiopian government of preventing aid from getting through.

Ghana’s ambition of defeating Nigeria in Friday’s 2022 World Cup qualification play-off against Nigeria has received a huge blow due to an injury to Edmund Addo. The Sheriff Tiraspol midfielder suffered a thigh setback while training with the Black Stars. Scans made available to Ghana Football Association show that Addo will not be available for action against Augustine Eguavoen’s men at the Baba Yara Stadium.
This news is a setback for coach Otto Addo, who is hoping to lead the country past the three-time African champions for a ticket to Qatar. In the midfielder’s absence, the Ghanaians will now count on Iddrisu Baba (RCD Mallorca -Spain), Mohammed Kudus (Ajax Amsterdam – Holland), Thomas Partey (Arsenal -England), Daniel and Kofi Kyereh (FC St. Pauli -Germany) to get the job done.
