Nigerian music superstar Wizkid has announced that he will be dropping new music on Wednesday, September 14.

New Wizkid Music 😇🖤❤️🦅 !!”
The post generated excitement from fans who have been waiting for new music from the Grammy-winning artist for a while. If the upcoming single turns out to be owned by Wizkid rather than a featured track, this will make it Wizkid’s first single since he released the “Made In Lagos” deluxe.

Lebron James, Drake, and Future are facing a $10,000,000 lawsuit after being accused of stealing “intellectual property rights” for their documentary “Black Ice.” According to reports, the former longtime head of the NBA Players Association, Billy Hunter, is seeking a share of profits from the documentary in addition to $10 Million after alleging to the Manhattan state Supreme Court that he holds exclusive legal rights to produce any film about the Colored Hockey League that existed from 1895 to the 1930s.
In the lawsuit, Hunter accuses James, Drake, and their entertainment companies of cutting a deal behind his back with the authors of the book that the documentary is based on called “Black Ice: The Lost History of the Colored Hockey League of the Maritimes, 1895 to 1925.”
The authors, George Fosty and Darril Fosty are also cited as defendants in the suit, citing breach of contract for allegedly violating an agreement they made with Hunter, giving him the rights to produce a movie on the Black hockey league. The suit mentions Hunter paid the authors $265,000 in February 2022 for exclusive movie rights to any “audiovisual” adaptation of the Black Ice story.

Queen Elizabeth II, the UK’s longest-serving monarch, has died at Balmoral aged 96, after reigning for 70 years. She died peacefully on Thursday afternoon at her Scottish estate, where she had spent much of the summer. The Queen came to the throne in 1952 and witnessed enormous social change. Her son, King Charles III said the death of his beloved mother was a “moment of great sadness” for him and his family and that her loss would be “deeply felt” around the world.
Senior royals had gathered at Balmoral after the Queen’s doctors became concerned about her health earlier in the day. All the Queen’s children traveled to Balmoral, near Aberdeen, after doctors placed the monarch under medical supervision. Her grandson and now heir to the throne, Prince William, and his brother, Prince Harry, also gathered there.
Prime Minister Liz Truss, who was appointed by the Queen on Tuesday, said the monarch was the rock on which modern Britain was built and had “provided us with the stability and strength that we needed.”

Karim Benzema is set for at least a three-week lay-off after Real Madrid confirmed he suffered a hamstring injury on Tuesday. After 26 minutes of the opening game of Real Madrid’s Champions League defense against Celtic, Benzema took a knock that he was unable to shake off. Eden Hazard took the place of last season’s top scorer a few minutes later and Benzema headed straight down the tunnel.
Earlier this week, Real Madrid confirmed in a statement that “he has been diagnosed with an injury to the semitendinosus muscle and an overload on the quadriceps, both in the right thigh.” In other words, it means the Frenchman has sustained a hamstring injury. Such is the nature of those injuries, the potential date of his return is entirely unclear. However, it’s believed that he will miss at least three weeks of action.
