What can we say? This week has been quite eventful and filled with hilarious moments. With buzzing stories on the soldiers on heels to the struggle to become baby daddy of the year to making questionable decisions on sensitive issues, the previous week is a week to remember.

Catch up on all the major stories that made the news:


Tales of the baby daddy
Weeks after welcoming his fifth and sixth children, Nick Cannon is now a dad of seven after his presumed current girlfriend Alyssa Scott gave birth to a baby boy. This would be Cannon’s fourth baby in a year. Cannon previously welcomed twin sons, Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir, with Abby De La Rosa on June 14. Additionally, he welcomed daughter Powerful Queen in December with Brittany Bell, with whom he also shares 4-year-old son Golden “Sagon.” He also shares 10-year-old twins, son Moroccan and daughter Monroe, with ex-wife Mariah Carey, 51. Well, that’s enough babies for this year, phew*

It’s raining high heels
Innocent high heels became the subject of criticism after the Ukrainian defense ministry published photos on Facebook which showed women from the Military Institute in the country’s capital, Kyiv, marching in heels. The cadets have been practising twice daily, for an average of four hours a day. The plan along with the pictures prompted a swift backlash on social media as critics, including female Ukrainian legislators, accused the military of sexism. Before now, the Defense minister Taran had ordered his deputies to look into new footwear, which will be “ergonomic and made in the shortest possible time.” What do you think?

Jeff magic
Recall that over 150,000 people have signed that the world’s richest man, Jeff Bezos, should not be allowed back to Earth. But that is not the biggest news. Bezos, the founder of the world’s largest retailing company, Amazon, is stepping down from the top position tomorrow. Bezos who will retain the executive chair of the e-commerce organisation, is making out time to satisfy his fascination with space travel later this month despite the signatures. Interestingly, it is on record that the CEO earns $4.02 billion daily, so that is enough to satisfy all his curiosity. Now that he has dominated earth, a space business maybe?

Pinky, is this a good idea?
Less than 24 hours after Nigerian actor, Yomi Fabiyi premiered his new film, “Oko Iyabo”, critics called for it to be pulled down. The film depicts the sexual assault case involving fellow actor, Olanrewaju Omiyinka, popularly known as Baba Ijesha. One of the scenes in “Oko Iyabo” was an exact reenactment of the viral CCTV video footage which implicated Baba Ijesha. It also portrays Baba Ijesha as a victim of a carefully orchestrated ploy by his close friend, and the teenage actress could be seen making the first move on the actor. He added that the film which critics claimed made a mockery of the victim was actually meant to “correct” the child abuse and assault.

The vows
Well, well, look who is married- US legend, Gwen Stefani and former world’s sexiest man and musician, Blake Shelton. The two who met as judges on the musical show “The Voice”, have married after six years of dating.
“Dreams do come true !!! ” Stefani wrote as she confirmed the wedding by sharing images on her Instagram page. The wedding comes eight months after Shelton and Stefani announced their engagement in October 2020. The two started dating in 2015, and have collaborated musically on songs like “Go Ahead and Break My Heart,” and “If I’m Honest”. Shelton was once married to singer, Miranda Lambert.
