Breakdown Of Happenings This Week
This week, the angels welcomed one of their own while those on earth were at a loss for words at the series of events that took place. From the strangest stories of escape to the surprise attacks, here is a rundown of the week:
Singing in heaven
South Africa and the rest of the world was left devastated when Joseph Shabalala, the founder of South African Grammy-Award-winning male choral group Ladysmith Black Mambazo, breathed his last. The 78-year-old singer retired from the group in 2014 due to his deteriorating health. In 2017, Shabalala was admitted to hospital after his health took a nosedive and he underwent spine surgery and “struggled” to get back on his feet. Meanwhile, the group had to cut short their US tour to return to South Africa.
Old things are passed
What would you do if you found that the man you have called husband for 40 years is a prison escapee? Millions of social media around the world were left stunned after a photoblog, Humans of New York, shared a story of a couple. Cheryl Love woke up on a normal morning to find her world changed when FBI came calling to arrest her husband whom she knows as Bobby Love but unknown to her was a prison escapee named Walter Miller. Now a changed man, she said that she has forgiven him and will continue to be his wife.
Love gone sour
Amidst the nude video controversy surrounding Kannywood actress, Maryam Booth, her ex-boyfriend, Ibrahim Ahmad Rufuai aka Deezell has demanded an apology from her over allegations that he leaked her nude video because she didn’t give him money. Booth in a statement posted on her Instagram page said she did not want to comment on the issue until forensic research and investigations have been completed. She accused her ex of sneakily recording while she was dressing. Deezell in his defense stated that the “outrageous allegations” made against him are false and demanded an apology.
It appears that “No mannaz” pioneer and popular controversial Nigerian artiste, Naira Marley got a taste of “his movement” after he lost his Twitter account to hackers who are supposedly in Denmark. His account where he used to convey his ‘deep thoughts’ was turned into a private account by a certain “Fros” with a bio that reads: Ortam sanal olsa da işlenen suç gerçektir (Although the environment is virtual, the crime is real). Recall in May 2019 the “Am I A Yahoo Boy” crooner was arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over allegedly being involved in internet fraud. No one is free after all.
West London husband-and-wife Kavaljitsinh Mahendrasinh Raijada, 30, and Arti Dhir, 55, have been accused of plotting the murder of her 11-year-old adopted son Gopal Sejani in India in a report by The Mirror. The couple has been accused of arranging the murder from the UK so they could claim a life insurance payout. The couple allegedly ordered a hitman to carry out the killing in India, which also resulted in Gopal Sejani’s brother-in-law’s death. The pair stood to gain a life insurance payout of about £150,000 in the event of Gopal’s death with his adoptive mother, Kenyan-born Dhir the sole beneficiary.
