Here Is A Rundown Of The Week
It is safe to describe the week as weird as some of the most-talked-about events were characterised by the strangest and unimaginable things possible. From the invalidation of a celebrity’s race, “blasphemy”, to daring the coronavirus,
Here is a rundown of the week:
Protect the children
Ghanaian Actress Rosemond Alade Brown better known as Akuapem Poloo has been arrested by the police over a nude photoshoot with her seven-year-old son which went viral on social media. In the photo which she explained was an artistic expression, she squatted in the nude in front of her son who was only in his underwear to celebrate his birthday. The actress, who tearfully asked for the public’s forgiveness last week, was picked up by operatives of Ghana’s Criminal Investigations Department (CID) and sent to the headquarters of the Domestic Violence and Victim Support Unit.
The golden mask
We wonder what businessman Shankar Kurade was thinking when he decided to ditch his medical face mask for an attention-drawing solid gold mask.
The 49-year-old Indian is said to have spent an equivalent of £4,000 (N1,948,000) for the face covering which weighs 60 grams and took eight days to create. For those who are worried about him breathing, there are tiny holes on his favourite precious metal. And if this will protect him from the virus? Who cares? He is overjoyed with the fame the mask has brought him. Plus, he takes all the necessary precautions except using the medical face mask. *Ooh well*
Two weeks after the release of Beyonce’s new album, Black Is King, she has become the subject of a conspiracy. According to the conspiracy, Beyonce is not black and is hiding her true identity. Why this is significant to the online community is because this theory was peddled by a congressional candidate in the US, KW Miller, who is running to represent Florida’s 18th Congressional District. Miller’s claims include a wild story that Beyonce is of Italian descent and her real name is Ann Marie Lastrassi. Due to the virality of the tweet, he has rechristened himself, the “Chuck Norris of the MAGA Movement”.
“Touch not my anointed”
The daughter of Michael Jackson, Paris has come under heavy criticism for starring in an upcoming film, Habit, in which she portrays Jesus as a lesbian. The announcement of the film did not go down well with the Christian community as over 300,000 people have signed several petitions to prevent the distribution of the film. A petition described the Warner Bros. and Lionsgate film as “Christianophobic garbage” while another describes it as an attempt to ridicule the Christian faith. Meanwhile, Australian singer-songwriter Sia has tweeted that she is in support of Jackson, “I believe you are a good person,” she concluded.
Ye or Nay?
Kanye West is bringing his lyrics, “reach for the stars, so if you fall, you land on a cloud,” to life. The born-again billionaire declared his intention to challenge Donald Trump for the presidency in a few months under the “Birthday Party.” Soon after this announcement, Tesla CEO’s Elon Musk wrote: “You have my full support!” This has received mixed reviews with some questioning if this is a publicity stunt. Interestingly, he has never voted in his life, believes vaccines are “the mark of the beast” and is “doing it to win.” Well, may the best man win.
