Beyoncé was the biggest music winner at the 2021 NAACP Image Awards. The “Crazy in love” hitmaker scooped four top prizes at the awards ceremony on Thursday night, March 25, held over several days, and concludes tonight. Beyoncé’s “Brown Skin Girl” landed her the Outstanding Female Artist and Outstanding Music Video gongs.
The R&B megastar competed against H.E.R., Jazmine Sullivan, Ledisi, and Alicia Keys for the former prize, while in the music video category, she beat her own “Black is King.” Beyoncé also took home Outstanding Duo, Group or Collaboration (Contemporary), and Outstanding Hip Hop/Rap Song with Megan Thee Stallion for their remix of the rapper’s mega-hit “Savage.”
3. South Africa: Cassper Nyovest finally shows off his son
The negative side of social media influenced rapper Cassper Nyovest and his partner Thobeka Majozi to become super-skeptical about sharing their son’s images on the net. Still, on Thursday, Cassper couldn’t help but share a glimpse of his boy.
Cassper took to Instagram to post the first snapshot of his son in which a part of his face was visible. Even though the baby wasn’t posing or looking at the camera, Cassper’s fans could see for the first time how cute the six-month-old is. Cassper captioned the snap, “Stuntin’ like my daddy.”
4. Ghana secure ninth straight AFCON qualification
Ghana’s Black Stars yesterday secured qualification to the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations tournament slated for Cameroon after they held South Africa to a 1-1 draw at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg on Thursday.
Mohammed Kudus’ goal just after recess broke the deadlock, and minutes later, Percy Tau canceled the lead to give his side a slim chance of making it to the competition. Simultaneously, the Black Stars secured Ghana’s ninth straight qualification and 23rd appearance to the continent’s flagship competition. After a scoreless first half during which Ghana survived some missed chances by the host team, the Ajax midfielder put Ghana ahead four minutes after recess.
5. Zlatan Ibrahimovic makes Sweden return
Zlatan Ibrahimovic marked his return to international football after a five-year absence with an assist as Sweden beat Georgia in their World Cup 2022 qualifying opener on Thursday. The 39-year-old volleyed the ball across the area for Viktor Claesson to bundle home just before the break.
Ibrahimovic’s return meant he became the oldest player to represent Sweden. The AC Milan striker beat the previous record of 38 years and 59 days previously held by goalkeeper Thomas Ravelli. Ibrahimovic, who has 62 international goals, could not get on the score sheet himself before he was substituted in the 84th minute.
