American rapper Kanye West has claimed that he has been trying to divorce wife, Kim Kardashian for almost two YEARS after she met Meek Mill at a hotel.
He made the series of wild allegations in a Twitter rant this morning. The father-of-four also accused Kim’s mum, Kris Jenner, of “white supremacy” as he shared his private text messages to his mother-in-law.
Noble Reporters Media can recount that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian got married in France and Italy (Yes, Two countries).
Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West tied the knot on May 24, 2014 in a show-stopping fairy tale ceremony in Italy.
However, the couple didn’t just celebrate with a ceremony and a reception, they made an entire extravagant weekend out of their nuptials, beginning with a trip to Paris where the bride-to-be held an epic bachelorette party with her sisters and friends at the Hôtel Costes.
The following day, May 23, the couple and their then almost one-year-old daughter, North West, along with the Kardashian-Jenner family and a handful of close friends, had a pre-wedding lunch hosted by Valentino Garavani at his and Giancarlo Giammetti’s house, Château de Wideville, just outside of Paris. The bride-to-be wore Valentino of course.
That evening the couple hosted a rehearsal dinner for around 600 guests in the Palace of Versailles’s Hall of Mirrors. Kim Kardashian West wore Maison Margiela and the guests were treated to a fireworks display and a surprise performance by award-winning artist Lana Del Rey.
Nigerian singer, Seyi Shay on stoopid sessions with Simi revealed she doesn’t have a problem and would be okay if her husband has a side chic.
Award winning singer, Seyi Shay, starting 2017 with a bang …
According to the singer, if her husband has several other chics by the side, she would be cool with as far she gets to be the number one among-st them. Although, she opines that the conversations have to be had first before such situation-ship is permitted.
In the video, the singer can be heard saying;
”I would actually be cool with my man having chics outside, as long as they are chics and not one because if he has one chics on the side, there’s chances, he’s gonna fall in love with that chic, but if he’s got like chics outside doing his thing and i am number one clearly in everywhere, he doesn’t have to tell me anything but as long we had conversation in the beginning”
Keedron Bryant – The 12-year-old whose song protesting police killings of African Americans in the US went viral has been signed by Warner Records.
In a post shared on his Instagram page, the young black boy, Keedron Bryant, has been signned by Warner Records on Thursday, his producer revealed.
Keedron Bryant went popular after he shared his song I Just Wanna Live, which is about his fears growing up as a black man in America on social media. The full song is now set tol be released on Friday, which is the Juneteenth holiday marking the end of slavery in the US.
Bryant first posted the acapella gospel song on his Instagram account on May 26, the day after another African American, George Floyd, was killed by a white policeman in the city of Minneapolis. Floyd’s death — one in a long line of black people killed by white law enforcement — ignited mass Black Lives Matter protests against police brutality and a national reckoning on racism in America, both in the past and today.
“Every day I’m being hunted as prey. My people don’t want no trouble,” Bryant sings.
The original post has been liked well over three million times, and drawn praise from Barack Obama to Katy Perry and many others around the world.
Iconic Nigerian singer, Oladapo Daniel Oyebanjo, better known by his stage name, DBanj, has been accused of rape by Nigerian model Benjamin Ese as the campaign against rape rages on.
Identified on Instagram as @action_ben, the guy stated that he was forced to break silence after he saw D’banj campaigning against rape on social media.
The singer’s post didn’t sit well with Action Ben who slammed D’banj with a claim of how he raped his friend in a hotel.
He wrote: “Oladapo Daniel Oyebanjo aka D’banj you are a full-time rapist. This is not clout at all. Good morning everyone, I know this will not get to anywhere because he’s so many people’s favourite celebrity. My friend decided not to talk because of the stigma, and we her friends choose to keep quiet too to respect her decision. Not until you made a post and said “justice for our girls”. The girl you raped also needs justice. If it is a lie, pick the case up and arrest me. I’m a Christian but let us go to a shrine Ogun to swear so the evil perpetrator dies immediately because our God is too merciful.
“You offered her 200k to sleep with you, she said she did not want then leave her, but your useless goat did not. I have never called out a celebrity but this is the truth. Most people are posting abut rape as a celeb if you don’t post you will be tagged the rapist. Franklin is still alive even if I know D’banj doesn’t mind paying him 200M not to talk, but it won’t stop me from passing the message.
“Ladies be careful of even the people we call public figures. I know many people will come to the conclusion that I don’t love my life for calling out a legend. But what’s the use of the life when people do things and get away with them? When our closed ones can be abused and we can’t do anything?”.
He then went on to narrate how the rape incident happened:
“How you have the courage to post about rape is what baffles me. Quick story time—On the 30th of December 2018 at Eko Atlantic an event called splash off which was an all-white party, franklin your manager then invited my friend to the party, On getting there Dbanj sighted her and sent few people to talk to her but she refused. My friend left the party and went to glee hotel in Vi where she was lodged by her friend franklin cos my friend couldn’t go back to the mainland that day.
“My friend got a call from Linda who at that time was dating banks friend, telling my friend the amount of money D’banj was ready to spend on her if he agrees, but my friend turned down the offer because she wasn’t interested. Dbanj drove all the way from Eko hotel where he was lodged and came down to glee hotel in Victoria island at midnight 2:40 am and collected the spare key from the receptionist, obviously, it’s D’banj a fucking celebrity rapist, he would be given a spare key, got into my friend’s room and forcefully threatened he would walk her out of the room naked, Kept his fingers in her Vagina and repeatedly raped her.
“My friend was crying and D’banj turned deaf ears how wicked and heartless!!! And immediately he did that Dbanj left. So you still have the right to post on Rape it’s been two years my friend has been traumatized over this. And as at yesterday, she threatened to commit suicide, she’s so livid and mad seeing a rapist like you post this. Take this post down and stop clouting, stop being a preacher of Rape cos you’re a rapist. I know I don’t have the power to push this but all Rapist will die a miserable death! #wearetired”.

Cynthia Morgan thanks Jude Okoye and Joy Tongo in open letter, insists she didn’t lie in her interview
I, Cynthia Morgan, would like to use this platform to appreciate all the love, well wishes and support from everyone showing love to me, my health and my well being.
A huge appreciation to Upfront With Sandra whose platform my story was told.
Appreciation goes out to Davido for reaching out and other brands who reached out.
A lot has happened in the past. I erred, other parties involved had their fair share of blame, but we all make mistakes. I was younger and new in the industry and in retrospect, some things could have been done differently instead of left unresolved.
However in telling my story, I have not lied but only shared my story as it happened from my own point of view.
Also i allowed the hurt & pain from past dealings take over my emotions but moving on,
I appreciate everyone clamoring for my return both online and offline. I’m also asking Cynthia Morgan fans all over the world for understanding and patience on the new journey we are about to embark on.
I won’t take this new opportunity for granted.
My heartfelt appreciation once again goes to JUDE and JOY. It is the pain speaking, not Cynthia. Thanks for giving me the platform to grow the Cynthia Morgan brand.
I have learnt the importance of opening up and sharing when one is going through challenges in life as mine is a testament of this.
Appreciation to all media houses and blogs. Thanks for your support and allow me formally introduce THE MADRINA to the world.
