Louis Vuitton, the iconic French fashion house, has tapped rapper Pusha T as its newest house ambassador. The announcement comes on the heels of a string of successful collaborations between Pusha T and Pharrell Williams, Louis Vuitton’s current Men’s Creative Director. Pusha T’s reputation as a lyrical powerhouse and trendsetter in the hip-hop world made him a natural fit for the brand.

A simple Google search reveals Burna Boy holding the coveted number one spot, followed by Wizkid, Davido, and Rema. While the exact criteria behind this ranking remain unknown, fans haven’t wasted any time voicing their opinions and debating the list online.

3. South Africa: Uncle Waffles announces Toronto show with a photo shoot paying homage to Drake

South African Amapiano DJ Uncle Waffles is set to ignite Toronto with her first-ever headline show on August 1!

The 24-year-old DJ, real name Lungelihle Zwane, has taken the internet by storm with her infectious energy and vibrant DJ sets.

4. Denzel Washington trends following release of ‘Gladiator II’ promo trailer

The internet is buzzing with excitement for Ridley Scott’s upcoming epic “Gladiator II” after the release of its official promo trailer. However, a particular element of the campaign has fans especially riled up—Denzel Washington’s imposing presence in a newly unveiled poster. While the film’s plot centers around Lucius, son of Maximus’s (Russell Crowe) lover Lucilla (Connie Nielsen), according to the synopsis, Washington’s role remains shrouded in mystery. This only intensifies the intrigue surrounding the poster, which features a close-up of Washington’s face.

The stark image showcases a weathered, gray-bearded Washington with a determined expression. The single gold earring adorning his left ear adds a touch of intrigue, with some fans on social media speculating it hints at a fierce character. While details about Washington’s part in the film are scarce, the poster’s impact is undeniable. It has successfully fueled online discussions and heightened anticipation for “Gladiator II,” slated for release on November 22nd.

5. Lamine Yamal becomes the youngest goal scorer in European Championship history

Spain’s Lamine Yamal has etched his name into European Championship history, becoming the youngest goal scorer in the tournament’s history. The 16-year-old winger achieved this remarkable feat during the thrilling semi-final clash against France at the Fußball Arena München. Yamal’s moment of magic came in the 21st minute. With France leading the game, the young Spaniard unleashed a sensational curling shot from outside the box that nestled perfectly into the top corner. This not only equalized the score but also cemented his place in the European Championship record books.

Prior to his goal, Yamal had already broken another record by becoming the youngest player to feature in a major tournament semi-final, surpassing the legendary Pelé’s record set in the 1958 World Cup. Now, he has surpassed Switzerland’s Johan Vonlanthen, who held the previous record for youngest Euros scorer since 2004. Yamal’s record-breaking goal propelled Spain to the final.
