2. Young Thug and Gunna post bail for minor charges inmates in overcrowded jail
Young Thug and Gunna have teamed up to do a good deed. It was reported that the Atlanta natives and frequent collaborators bailed 30 inmates out of Fulton County Jail on Friday afternoon. The inmates could not afford to pay their bail on their own and are facing minor charges.
Those who Thugger and Gunna bailed out were given a home-cooked meal and will be featured in a new music video by the artistes. Thugger and Gunna say they plan on bailing more inmates out in the future and hope their generosity inspires other artistes to do the same.
3. South African celebrities celebrate as SA documentary wins Oscar award
A few South African celebrities have joined the chorus of celebrations after the SA Netflix documentary “My Octopus Teacher” won the Oscar for Best Documentary Film on Monday. The film has won more than 20 international awards and became the first nature documentary to win an Academy Award since “The Cove” in 2010.
Co-directors Pippa Ehrlich and James Reed accepted the iconic gold statuette at the awards ceremony in Los Angeles. Social media has been flooded with messages of congratulations for the team who worked on the film.
4. Ghana to receive COVID-19 vaccines from UNICEF
The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) will take 1.3 million doses from the Democratic Republic of Congo’s delivery of 1.7 million COVID-19 vaccines and redistribute them to other African countries. Among the countries to benefit from the distribution include Ghana, Senegal, Togo, Angola, Madagascar, and Comoros.
Speaking at the Africa Vaccine Week celebration in Accra, Susie Villeneuve, UNICEF’s Regional Adviser for Health Systems Strengthening, indicated that the said redistribution of the vaccine doses is owing to their expiration on June 24.
5. Zlatan Ibrahimovic investigated by UEFA over ‘alleged financial interest’ in betting company
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is to be investigated by UEFA over an “alleged financial interest in a betting company.” According to reports in his native Sweden, the AC Milan striker, 39, has broken the rules after becoming a partner in a betting company. UEFA’s disciplinary regulations state players should not have a financial interest in betting.
This comes after the football player was fined 4,000 euros (£3,500) for his part in an ugly clash with Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku during a Coppa Italia match in January. Last week he signed a new contract that will run until after his 40th birthday.
