Paris restaurant 'refuses to serve Muslim women'

A video showing a restaurateur in a Paris suburb apparently refusing to serve two Muslim women has sparked anger in France and calls for protest.
In the video, widely shared on social media, the man tells the hijab-wearing women: "Terrorists are Muslims and all Muslims are terrorists."
The incident took place at Le Cenacle restaurant in Tremblay-en-France on Saturday night.
On Sunday, the man apologised to a group who had gathered outside.
He said he had "got out of hand" due to the current tensions around the issue of wearing burkinis on French beaches, but also because he had a friend who had died at the Bataclan concert centre attack last November, Le Parisien reported (in French).
The video inside the restaurant appears to have been covertly filmed by one of the women.
"We don't want to be served by racists," one of them said.
The man retorted: "Racists don't kill people."
He also said: "I don't want people like you at my p…

Akufo-Addo promises ‘one village, one dam’

The 2016 flagbearer of the opposition New Patriotic Party Nana Akufo-Addo has promised to create at least, a dam, in every village in the Northern region, should he emerge President after the December 7, polls.

According to Nana Akufo-Addo, the only way to increase the total land area under cultivation in Ghana, which currently stands at a mere 30,000 out of 14 million hectares of arable land, is for the country to develop more irrigation systems.

“You have been hearing me talking about 1-District-1-Factory. As far as this part of the country is concerned, I even want to go further and talk about “1-village-1-dam”, to make sure that in every village, we have a functioning dam to support agriculture. If Ghana’s agriculture is working well, the nation is capable of feeding West Africa,” the former attorney general told the traditional council at Bolgatanga in the Upper East region during his campaign tour there.

In his remarks, the NPP flagbearer explained that an NPP governm…

MzVee says She is Still A Virgin

2016 BET nominee, MzVee in an interview on delay show addressed several industry and personal issues, including her sex-life.

The Natural Girl singer made it clear that she's still a virgin. Even though it came out in a comic way, attempts to get her to straighten things out for viewers still rendered same results.

She believes she is more engulfed in music now and doesn't have enough time for a relationship. "I meet people all the time, I just don't think it's that important of a matter for me now"- she responded to the question of if she hasn't met the right guy yet?
In other topics of the interview, the arguably one of the cemented feminine faces of dancehall expressed her love for music and made it clear she doesn't like to be boxed. "I love music and do all genre of music, hip-hop, RnB, Dancehall, and whatnot. And I believe being labelled as a dancehall artist is not what I want"- she said.
