1. Michelle Obama announces new healthy food and beverage company for kids

On Wednesday, May 3, former First Lady Michelle Obama revealed that she co-founded a food and beverage company aimed at providing families with healthier eating options. The big announcement came during an appearance at The Wall Street Journal Future of Everything Festival. Obama’s new endeavor is called PLEZi Nutrition and will work with her Let’s Move! campaign that she started while in the Oval Office in an effort to fight childhood obesity. “I’ve learned that on this issue, if you want to change the game, you can’t just work from the outside. You’ve got to get inside — you’ve got to find ways to change the food and beverage industry itself,” she confessed.

Obama continued, “I’m proud to announce the national launch of a company designed not just to provide better products but to jumpstart a race to the top that will transform the entire food industry.” The first product to debut on the PLEZi line will be a drink targeted for kids between 6- and 12-year-olds that contains 75 percent less sugar than other popular fruit juices.

2. Genevieve Nnaji returns to social media for 44th birthday

On Wednesday, May 3, renowned Nigerian actress, Genevieve Nnaji marked her 44th birthday on social media after being absent from it for several months. She posted a new photo of herself with the caption “+1” on her Twitter account. Furthermore, she used her Instagram stories to share birthday greetings from her friends.

It is worth noting that rumors circulated online that the actress was struggling with mental health problems after she deleted all of her posts and unfollowed all accounts on her Instagram. However, her team subsequently refuted these allegations. Since then, Nnaji has been mostly absent from both social media and Nollywood events.

If there’s one thing about Cassper Nyovest, it’s that he’s also where the money is. In his latest major move, the “Siyathanda” star announced that he’s part of the second year of Sprite’s global music program, Sprite Limelight. The program brings together four diverse international artistes to create music in a unique format that sees one hook (or chorus) used on several different beats. Nyovest will be joined by a line-up of three other artistes hailing from across the world: Feid, Lexa, and Lay Zhang.

The brand has teamed up with OneRepublic lead singer and multi-Gramm- award-winning songwriter, Ryan Tedder to spearhead the campaign by creating the hook and the theme for this particular season. Each of the four participating artistes was tasked with creating an original song around this hook. Nyovest shared the news on Instagram with the caption” “BIG NEWS! I’m working with @ryantedder and @sprite_rsa @sprite on Sprite Limelight Season 2! Ryan sent me a hook and we created a dope track together… can’t wait for you all to hear! Stay Tuned. #SpriteLimelight.”

On Wednesday, May 3, Jamie Foxx addressed the public for the first time after spending weeks in the hospital recovering from an unknown medical condition. The 55-year-old’s daughter, Corinne Foxx, shared the troubling news of his hospitalization in an April 12 Instagram post. In a simple yet effective message, Jamie let his fans know he was alert. “Appreciate all the love! Feeling blessed,” he wrote on Instagram. Fans and celebrities alike flooded his comment section with well-wishes.

Over in his Instagram Stories, Jamie shared another update regarding a popular television show he previously hosted. His daughter, Corinne, announced that “Beat Shazam” would be temporarily hosted by Nick Cannon with Kelly Osbourne filling in as a guest DJ, which Jamie reposted.

5. Osimhen makes history, leads Napoli to Scudetto title after 33 years

Victor Osimhen made history on Thursday night powering Napoli to win a Serie A title after 33 years. The Nigerian forward scored the decisive goal in the second half as Napoli came back from trailing to Sandi Lovric’s opener at half-time. Osimhen’s title-deciding strike against Udine was his 22nd goal in 28 league appearances and rightly caused bedlam among the massed ranks of away fans who took over Udine. The Nigerian striker has had the best season of his career and been key to Napoli’s historic charge to glory, becoming, in the process, one of the most devastating center forwards in European football, clattering in goals left and right.

Injury slowed down the 24-year-old striker’s scoring rate but between returning from a thigh injury in mid-October and the recent round of African Cup of Nations qualifiers last month, he averaged a goal a game. Over that period, Osimhen scored 23 times in 23 matches in all competitions, propelling Napoli to the brink of a historic Scudetto and becoming a bona fide fan idol even before he scored the goal that secured the title on Thursday. Napoli’s Thursday win saw an end to a 33-year title drought, thanks to Osimhen’s title-winning strike which powered the team to glory, one that was last won in 1990.
