Nigerian music icon 2Baba Idibia went on a surprising rant on Instagram. The music star who is known for abstaining from social media drama took to his Instagram page on Monday, October 18, to drop a message for someone. It is not clear who the messages were met for but it may be connected to the recent drama in his marriage and family.
In September, the music star’s wife called him out over his ‘suspicious’ relationship with one of his baby mamas, Pero. She also accused his family of not loving and caring about her since their marriage. In addition, a few weeks later, a leaked audio taping of the mother-of-two surfaced where she threatened fire and brimstone. 2Baba later released a statement asking the public to back off his marital issues.

Ethiopia has admitted it was behind airstrikes in the capital of the conflict-riven Tigray region — hours after it denied it had carried out what rebels say were deadly raids. The state-run news agency said the attacks had targeted rebel’s communications and weapons facilities. But media controlled by the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) said three civilians had been killed. The rebel group is at war with Ethiopia’s federal government. The government initially denied the allegations it had struck targets in Tigray’s capital, Mekelle. “Why would the Ethiopian government attack its own city? Mekelle is an Ethiopian city,” government spokesman Legesse Tulu asked.
Ethiopia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs went on to accuse the TPLF of killing at least 30 civilians in recent attacks in Amhara and Afar regional states, which both border Tigray. But hours afterwards, state media said it had carried out successful strikes with the aim of preventing civilian casualties.

Former Cote d’Ivoire international and Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has been named as the World Health Organization’s Goodwill Ambassador for Sport and Health. Following the announcement on Monday in Geneva, the two-time African Player of the Year winner will support the organization to promote the organization’s guidance on the benefits of physical activity and other healthy lifestyles.
Drogba quit football at the age of 40 following a professional career spanning two decades, the peak years of which the Ivorian spent at Stamford Bridge. In nine seasons across two spells in London, he won a dozen major honors, including four Premier League titles and a famous Champions League triumph in 2012. Meanwhile, WHO Director-General waxed lyrical about the ex-Olympique Marseille star not only as a football icon but as a dedicated advocate for good health. Lori Harvey skincare line
