Usher will have to add more baby lullabies to his song list as the eight-time Grammy-winning R&B singer and his girlfriend, vice president of A&R at Epic Records, Jenn Goicoechea, are expecting their second child together. The mother-to-be shared that they’re expecting their second child on Instagram after Usher completed his hosting duties at the iHeart Radio Music Awards Thursday night.

President Muhammad Buhari has appointed Farouk Yahaya, a major general, as the new chief of army staff. This was contained in a statement by the acting Director of Defence Information, Onyema Nwachukwu.

Mr. Yahaya replaces Ibrahim Attahiru, a lieutenant general, who died in an air crash alongside 10 other officers and men of the army last week. Until his appointment, the new army chief was the Theatre Commander of Operation Hadin Kai, the counter-insurgency operation in the North-east.

3. South Africa: Cassper Nyovest pushes Prince Kaybee for a fight date

Cassper Nyovest has called on Prince Kaybee to commit to a date for their boxing match instead of “talking.” If you missed it on Twitter, the industry rivals are set to fight each other after Kaybee challenged Cassper to brawl it out in the boxing ring. After some back and forth on Twitter, Nyovest was fed up with the talk and no action approach and took to Twitter in frustration.

Though he didn’t directly address the tweet, the star responded to a curious fan wondering why Prince Kaybee took several hours to respond. Kaybee said that he had been busy with a side gig and finally had time to catch up with Cassper’s tweets.

4. Germany officially recognizes its role in colonial-era Namibia genocide

Germany has officially acknowledged committing genocide during its colonial occupation of Namibia and announced financial aid worth more than €1.1bn (£940m; $1.34bn). German colonizers killed tens of thousands of Herero and Nama people there in the early 20th Century massacres.

Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said his country was asking Namibia and the victims’ descendants for forgiveness. But activists say the aid is not enough to address the suffering inflicted. However, they will pay out the money over 30 years through spending on infrastructure, healthcare, and training programs benefiting the impacted communities.

5. David Alaba: Austria defender joins Real Madrid after leaving Bayern Munich

Austria defender David Alaba has joined Real Madrid following his departure from Bayern Munich. The 28-year-old has joined the Spanish giants on a free transfer, signing a five-year deal.

Alaba came through the youth system at Bayern Munich after joining the German club in 2008. His arrival at Real Madrid comes just one day after manager Zinedine Zidane resigned following a trophyless 2020-2021 season. Alaba made 431 appearances for Bayern Munich during his 13 years at the Bundesliga side.
