1. Margot Robbie is pregnant with her first child

Actress and producer Margot Robbie is reportedly pregnant with her first child with husband Tom Ackerley. The news broke after photos emerged of Robbie vacationing on Lake Como, Italy, showing a baby bump. While neither Robbie nor Ackerley have officially confirmed the pregnancy, multiple sources close to the couple have spoken to publications like People magazine.

This is exciting news for the couple who have been married for nearly eight years. They met on the set of the World War II drama “Suite Française” in 2013 and have been partners in life and business ever since. Together they co-founded the production company LuckyChap Entertainment, which has produced several successful films including “I, Tonya,” “Birds of Prey,” and the Box Office-record-breaking live-action “Barbie.”

2. Burna Boy’s ‘Higher’ sets record for biggest opening week for a song on Spotify Nigeria

Nigerian superstar Burna Boy continues to solidify his dominance in the music scene, this time achieving a record-breaking feat on Spotify. His latest single, “Higher,” has secured the title for the biggest opening week for a song on Spotify Nigeria. “Higher” raked in a staggering 2.3 million streams within its first seven days, surpassing the previous record held by Rema and Shallipopi’s “Benin Boys,” which garnered 2.1 million streams. This achievement comes shortly after “Higher” shattered the record for the most opening-day streams for a solo song by an African artist on Spotify.

This record-breaking week follows Burna Boy’s history-making sold-out concert at the London Stadium, where he became the first African artist to sell out the venue twice. “Higher,” released in June, is described as an anthem of resilience and hope, serving as a reminder to appreciate the important things while celebrating success.

3. South African actor Fezile Mkhize is Mister Supranational 2024

Fezile Mkhize, a multi-talented South African, has brought immense pride to his nation by winning the coveted Mister Supranational 2024 title! The grand finale, held in Nowy Sącz, Poland, saw Mkhize triumph over 35 contestants from across the globe. This victory marks a historic moment in two ways. Mkhize becomes the first-ever South African to claim the Mister Supranational crown, and even more significantly, the first Black man to win the prestigious competition.

Mkhize is not just a captivating presence on screen—he’s also a dedicated medical doctor and television host. His well-rounded background and charisma undoubtedly played a role in his win. As Mister Supranational 2024, he will become a brand ambassador for the organization for the next year. We can expect him to leverage his platform to promote positive change and inspire others.

4. Kendrick Lamar’s “Not Like Us” breaks the YouTube record for most views in an hour for a rap song in 2024

Kendrick Lamar is on fire! His latest music video, “Not Like Us,” has shattered the record for the most views garnered by a rap song in its first hour on YouTube in 2024. The hard-hitting track, released on US Independence Day, July 4, racked up a staggering 1.3 million views in a mere 60 minutes, leaving the competition in the dust. This achievement surpasses the previous record held by none other than rap legend Eminem, whose “Houdini” video reached 1 million views in its first hour earlier this year.

“Not Like Us” is clearly resonating with fans, sparking a frenzy of online activity and propelling Lamar even further into the spotlight. While the total view count for the video continues to climb, one thing is certain: Kendrick Lamar is proving once again why he’s a force to be reckoned with in the music industry.

5. Lewis Hamilton wins British GP for ninth time

Lewis Hamilton delivered a thrilling performance at the British Grand Prix, clinching a record-extending ninth win at his home race. This victory marked a significant comeback for the Mercedes driver, snapping a 56-race winless streak that stretched back to the 2021 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix. Hamilton fended off a late challenge from championship leader Max Verstappen, who overtook Lando Norris in the closing laps for second place. The race was an exciting battle, with changing weather conditions adding to the drama. Hamilton’s strategic pit stop, where he opted for slick tires a lap earlier than his competitors, proved to be the winning move.

This emotional victory wasn’t just about breaking a personal dry spell. It also cemented Hamilton’s place in Formula One history. He became the sole driver to win a single Grand Prix nine times, surpassing the record he previously shared with Michael Schumacher. Additionally, this podium finish extended his record for most podium appearances in the same race to twelve. Hamilton’s jubilant celebration with his father after the race encapsulated the significance of this win. It marked a fitting end to his Mercedes career, as he prepares to join Ferrari next season.
