3. South Africa: Bonang Matheba’s ‘B*dazzled’ set to make YouTube comeback

The B-force is elated after a teaser of Bonang Matheba’s show was shared online recently. Eleven years ago, the media personality documented her experiences in the entertainment industry on YouTube episodes before her reality TV break on Mzansi Magic, “Being Bonang,” which ran for three seasons. Now she is making her online comeback with “B*dazzled.” In a recent interview, Bonang said she was excited to return to YouTube.

“B*dazzled is something that I started many years ago, and now as an entertainer, it’s so fascinating how quickly traditional media has changed … B*dazzled was lovely, it showed some of the behind-the-scenes of life and the usual everyday things, it was a lot less scripted … I’m going back to my YouTube era, it’s important to be on YouTube … my fans wanted this, and I’m ready to give the people what they want.” The trailer circulating on social media showcases Bonang’s collaboration with Steve Madden, addressing dating rumors with one of the Major League DJz and her intention to be more open this time.

4. Wilson Kiprugut: Kenya’s first Olympic medalist dies aged 84

Wilson Kiprugut, Kenya’s first Olympic medalist, has been hailed as a pioneer following his death at the age of 84. Kiprugut won a bronze medal in the 800 m at the 1964 Olympics in Tokyo and followed that up with a silver over the same distance in Mexico City four years later. “It is a sad day for our sport. He was one of our greatest runners,” double Olympic and world 800m champion David Rudisha told the media.

“Being the first Kenyan to win a medal in Olympic Games, and the race being 800m, is really a great inspiration. You can see the 800m has been a race for the Kenyans ever since. We have been performing very well, but I can say it’s because of people like Wilson Kiprugut. He made our country proud.” Athletics Kenya said Kiprugut, who died in Kericho County on Wednesday after a long illness, was one of the country’s “pioneering athletes.”

Our condolences to his friends and family.

5. Arteta insists he’s going nowhere amid links to former club Barcelona

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has brushed off the latest speculation linking him with a move to Barcelona. Reports in Spain have once again suggested that the Catalan giants are keeping a close eye on Arteta, who came through the club’s La Masia academy as a player and has guided Arsenal to the summit of the Premier League in 2022–2023. But when asked about the links at his press conference ahead of Thursday night’s Europa League clash with FC Zurich, the Arsenal boss reiterated how happy he is in north London. “I’m extremely happy,” he said. “I’m proud to be where I am.”

Arteta was also quick to praise the work of Xavi, who has been in charge at Camp Nou since November 2021. “I think Barcelona now they are in a really good path,” Arteta said. “They have a phenomenal coach, a coach that has been an absolute legend in that club and has lifted the whole place and you have to be very respectful of that.”
