The African Kings of Comedy will kick off on the 26th of May 2012 at the New Expo Hall, Eko Hotel & Suites, Lagos and it looks like it will be a real laugh with comic acts including Nigerian Basketmouth and South Africa’s Loyiso Gola amongst the acts.
If you lucky enough to be there you will also be treated to the music talent of Wizkid and 2Face.
On when he knew his relationship with Kelis was over There was a point where we were trying to hold onto a relationship that was finished. She was pregnant and in the studio while we were recording Distant Relatives, and he would move when the music would come on. That was a great feeling for me, just to have that feeling of family. It ended around the time the record was being done.
There were times when it didn’t bother me, and there were times when it bothered me a lot. There were times when I was thinking, ‘Damn. I had this shit all planned out, and now I’ve failed’. That was hard on me, because I don’t like to fail at anything. Accepting that I failed at this relationship—and it was public—messed me up. You ask yourself, ‘How could that person be so cold’? And I’m sure she felt the same way about me. It was ugly.
On whether he ever sees himself getting married again Not right now. I’m enjoying life and looking at each day like, “This is beautiful.” I’m having a good time. I’m not going to bring anybody in to mess that up. You come around looking like you’re going to mess this good time up, you’re out of here—fast. I’m not sacrificing my happiness for nobody and their drama. No way. On his new track titled ‘Daughter’
and how guilty he feels sometimes This is the first time I’m dealing with a teenage daughter, and it blows me away. I don’t know that you’re ever prepared to be a parent. Once you become one, that’s your responsibility. It’s more like me talking to myself, about how I could have been there a lot more. I beat myself up for not being the best I could be. I would ask her: “Am I a cool dad?” or “Am I a good dad? Did I f-ck up?” And she would say, “Nah, you’re good.” That’s important to me because I started as a teen. I was around 19 when her mother was pregnant. My daughter means a lot to me. It’s just a record that came from the heart.
Im also starting to think Nas should try holla at Solange Knowles. She apparently already has a crush on him anyhow…
Mama warned you not to wed her but you didnt listen ha…After his semi hot performance at the Billboard Music Awards, poor Usher now has to deal with his baby mama Tameka Raymond. They were in court yesterday where Usher broke down in tears after he was accused of preferring to party than take care of his childen. Tameka also accused him of being a drug abuser and he admitted that he’d smoked weed but his lawyer jumped in and objected after he was questioned about using ecstasy.
Yesterday, under oath, Usher also detailed a time that Tameka “wanted to fight” after he showed up at her house to drop off his kid with his new girlfriend and current manager, Grace Miguel. The only reason why he brought his girlfriend along was because he was under time constraints and he parked at the bottom of the hill so that there wouldn’t be any drama, however when Tameka realized his new girl was in the car, she went insane:
To hopefully prevent and negative interaction between the two of them I parked at a distance down the hill from her home. I walked Usher up the hill, up the driveway, to her house where she greeted me with a plate of food. Apparently there was some celebration going on in the house. She had a plate of food in her hand and I said, ‘Here’s Usher.’ I said she should go into the house and attend to the other children, she said, ‘The children are fine.’ I proceeded to walk back down the hill towards my car and she said, ‘Why’d you park down the hill?’ I said, ‘You should turn around and go back to your house and deal with the children as no one is in the house. The children are unattended.’ She said, ‘The children are fine. Why’d you park down the hill?’
She placed the plate of food on the pedestal and walked over to the car. [She] pulled the door open and she wanted to fight. She told her, ‘I’ma kick your a–. B—h get out of the car. How dare you bring this woman in my subdivision. In my house, my subdivision.’ Of course I try my hardest to prevent the situation from escalating to far worse than what it could have potentially been, but she continued to swing, spit. At this point she had slammed — she began to pull the door open, began to pull Ms. Miguel and began to swing at her. It was basically an attack on her. I, at that point, got out of the car and came around to the passenger side and stood between the two of them. Ms. Miguel never got out of the car but at least I wedged myself between the door and her. I shut the door and Tameka hit me, of course. I went back around to the other side of the car and we exchanged words. I just told her, there were people watching in the neighborhood and I just thought that was horrible. The kids could have seen us. Could have heard us obviously. She shouldn’t be so loud and maybe other neighbors would have seen it. That’s just not the way I would conduct myself, so I left. Got in my car, drove to the end of the culdesac, turned around and she threw her plate of food at the car and I drove off.”
Ladies a lesson in life: The ex-wife and baby mama will get you everytime!
Sometimes these survey’s just piss me off because they continue to show how the working class will forever be screwed over by large corporations and their executives.
A new global survey by Ernst & Young shows that the pressure to meet revenue targets is undermining executives commitment to compliance with policies and the law…In other words it is making it harder for them to do business the clean way…right…
The survey shows that 15% of senior executives polled at leading companies are willing to make cash payments to win or retain business, this is an increase from the 9% recorded in 2010.
Ernst & Young polled more than 1 700 executives across 43 countries, including South Africa, Kenya, Namibia and Nigeria (of course Africa) were heads of legal, compliance and internal audit were asked for their views on fraud, bribery and corruption.
Over a third of the participants in the survey believe corruption is widespread in their country, and the situation is significantly worse in rapid-growth markets like Brazil (84%), Nigeria (72%), Turkey (52%) and SA (64%).
BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) have plans for a joint development bank to be launched in South Africa early next year. Leaders from the five countires met last month in New Delhi to discuss setting up the bank that will fund infrastructure development and act as an alternative to the World Bank and other finance bodies such as the IMF.
I want to take a huge sigh of relief…but I think I will wait it out until the bank is actually operational.
Like honestly who told models that they are now smart enough to just go around tweeting all willy nilly!? no man.
Another FHM model Sabina Essa is in hot water after tweeting: “Just got out of a R2500 fine for going 140 in a 60 zone. R30! Bwahahahaha. I LOVE JMPD.” YOU NEVER ADMIT TO BRIBING A COP ESPECIALLY IF YOU POTENTIALLY FAMOUS DUMB ASS…
As luck would have it, her comments caught the attention of Justice Project SA CEO Howard Dembovsky who was obviously shocked that someone could boast about a bribe and was not arrested.
The girl took her stupidity to another level when Dembovsky contacted her to reprimand her she told him she posted the tweet for some attention. FML.
She then tweeted: “So sorry for my tweet. I fabricated the story to attract attention, we sometimes all do it and [I am] superembarassed”. LIES!!!
Really…models should not be allowed to tweet!
