The track showcases her signature lyrical prowess as she tackles topics ranging from thirsty DMs to immature grown men.

Fans are ecstatic to see Meg revitalize the concept and flex her rapping muscles once again.

2. Patoranking reveals philanthropic efforts in Africa

Nigerian reggae-highlife musician Patoranking has excited his fans with his recent charity work in Nigeria and across Africa. He posted on social media about the impressive volunteer projects of his Patoranking Foundation. These projects are mainly aimed at improving education in Africa. They have already made a big impact at the Love Schools in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State, Nigeria, and at the African Leadership University (ALU) in Rwanda.

Patoranking is dedicated to helping his home area, as he is originally from Ebonyi State, Nigeria. His projects are helping more than 180 students from elementary to university level get a better education. Also, his efforts at ALU are helping students from many African countries, including Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Rwanda, Liberia, Burkina Faso, Kenya, Ghana, Uganda, and Nigeria.

3. South Africa: Actor Mpho Sebeng has reportedly died

Actor Mpho Sebeng has sadly passed away. His friend, actor Zola Hashatsi, shared on social media that Mpho was killed in a car crash in Klerksdorp last Sunday morning. Zola wrote, “It is with a sad, deep, painful heart to announce the passing of a young brother, friend I took in to replace us when we exited Craze TV, a thespian that was Mpho Sebeng. This one hurts and I’m not OK. His star was only beginning to shine. What a loss, he was only 30 years young. I’ll send more info, as times go. Will be with the family this week. Please note I’m not taking any calls.”

Our heartfelt condolences go out to his family and friends.

4. Tyla Breaks silence on Rihanna comparisons

In her Cosmopolitan magazine cover feature, Tyla wants everyone to understand that she is different from Rihanna. Since her big hit “Water” in 2023, Tyla has quickly become popular. She just won her first Grammy and keeps making her mark, even though people compare her to Rihanna. Tyla is happy to be mentioned alongside Rihanna, but she insists she is her own person, not a mini-Rihanna.

She explains, “Rihanna is Rihanna. It’s a compliment,” she told the outlet. “But at the same time, I’m my own artist. I’m Tyla. And I know as people get to know me and my music, they will see me as just Tyla. So I’m fine with it now. “People want to tie me to something familiar to them. Cool,” the South African singer continued. But at the end of the day, we’re doing something no one’s done before, and it can’t really be compared to anyone.

5. Lando Norris finally wins his first race in Formula 1

Lando Norris won his first Formula 1 race at the Miami Grand Prix, in his 110th attempt, using a timely Safety Car to his advantage. Previously, Norris held the record for the most podiums without a win, at 15, but he managed to change that in his sixth season. Initially in sixth place, Norris’s team decided to keep him out longer before pitting. This strategy worked well when the Safety Car came out due to a crash, allowing him to pit and stay ahead.

Even with 24 laps left and the highly successful Max Verstappen right behind him, Norris didn’t just defend his lead; he extended it and won the race by 7.6 seconds. This victory marked McLaren’s first win since 2021 and only their second in the last 12 years.
