Here Are The Quick Highlights Of The Week
A man can be a superstar one minute and the next, he is spiralling on the floor- this is what celebrities and fans around the world learned this week. From Karma biting back to bad behaviour getting attention, here is a rundown of what happened in the week:
Kylie the world’s richest!
Beauty entrepreneur, Kylie Jenner, is now the world’s youngest self-made billionaire at the age of 21. Jenner, on Tuesday, admitted to the “nine-zero” fortune club by Forbes. The business magazine ranked Jenner as the world’s 2,057th richest person. In an interview with Forbes, Jenner said: “I didn’t expect anything. I did not foresee the future. But [the recognition] feels really good. That’s a nice pat on the back.” Jenner’s fortune comes from Kylie Cosmetics, the makeup company she runs largely from her iPhone, with the help of her mother, Kris.
Get singing or die trying
Remember Kanye West’s “Slavery is a choice”? Well, because of a provision in Kanye West’s EMI contract that has now been recently revealed to the public, West will literally have to ‘die on the line’ before he can stop making music because he is not allowed to retire. The artist is seeking that a clause is removed from his EMI publishing contract because it states that he will “remain actively involved in writing, recording and producing Compositions and Major Label Albums, as Your principle occupation.”
Honesty, the best policy?
What would you do if you found a bag full of money or would you rather answer, does honesty pay? That has been the question many
Nigerians are trying to find an answer to after a cleaner at Murtala Mohammed International Airport, MMIA, Josephine Ugwu claimed she had returned different amounts of money running into millions. Sometimes, 12, sometimes 8 million Naira. Ugwu, however, is not happy because she feels she has not gotten the recognition she deserves. Her stance is if Nigeria were another country she would have been an ambassador of honesty to the youths.
Say No to violence
Police in South Africa are investigating a case on assault after pop-star and celebrated performer of gqom music, Babes Wodumo, apparently broadcast live images of her being assaulted by her lover and musician, Mandla “Mampintsha” Maphumulo on Instagram. Wodumo’s family told local news site News24 that she had made a criminal complaint of assault to police. Her team wrote on her Twitter account, “we would like to thank everyone for the messages (of) support about the early morning video”. Her parents, however, said that she has been hospitalised and refused to comment any further.
Much ado about R. Kelly
Embattled singer, R. Kelly has granted his first interview since being charged to court on allegations of sexually, emotionally, and physically abusing multiple women and underage girls for decades. In an interview with Gayle King of “CBS This Morning”, Kelly described the allegations are “stupid”, “not true”, and “not fair”. “I didn’t do this stuff, this is not me, I’m fighting for my [expletive] life,” the singer said on the edge of tears. Kelly also hinted that the allegations against him were absurd, appealing to viewers’ “common sense”, and at other times said it was unfair to constantly return to his history.
