Mel B says she has been the victim of horrific brutality at the hands of husband Stephen Belafonte for nearly a decade, and lots of people around her saw her injuries but it appears most of them bought her stories that made no sense.

TMZ broke the story, Mel B got a restraining order Monday against Belafonte, claiming he beat her, choked her and threw her to the ground on multiple occasions. According to the documents, after an alleged beating in 2012 over Belafonte's jealousy of Usher, producers of 'X Factor' (Australia) noticed swelling on her face and asked for a physician. She claimed it was an allergic reaction to shellfish and according to the document, the doctor on set bought her story.

She was also forced to miss a filming of 'X Factor' (UK) in late 2014 because her injuries were so bad they could not be covered by theatrical makeup. When she finally returned, she still had visible facial and body wounds yet no one sounded the alarm.

In an interview Nana Aba explained ‘getting Tigo on board has been such an amazing development. I get distraught at the the lack of libraries in our communities.

A child who reads, becomes an adult who thinks’.

Ethiopian maid who fell from 7-floor while in front of her laughing employer is still alive

The Ethiopian maid whose video went viral on Friday after she was seen falling down from a 7th-floor apartment in Kuwait, has finally spoken out.
In the terrifying video, the unnamed woman hung from the railing, while her employer who could be heard laughing started recording the incident, instead of helping her into safety.
Speaking from her hospital bed, the woman who incredibly survived the fall, which occurred in the upscale Sabah el-Salem area,  said she wasn't trying to commit suicide, as her employer who filmed the whole terrible event had implied.
According to the victim who was speaking Amharic in a video interview, she said she was trying to escape from being killed by her employer. 'I was trying to escape from the woman who tried to kill me.' The Kuwaiti woman has since been arrested, and human rights organizations are asking authorities to investigate the incident to its utmost consequences.

Allies abandon South Africa President Jacob Zuma

South Africa's powerful trades union federation Cosatu has called for President Jacob Zuma to step down. Its Secretary General Bheki Ntshalintshali said he was no longer the "right person" to lead the country.
Anti-apartheid struggle veterans have also called on the African National Congress (ANC) to recall the president.
Mr Zuma has been under growing pressure following a major cabinet reshuffle which included the sacking of respected Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan.
That led to South Africa's credit rating being cut to junk status putting more pressure on a troubled economy.
The Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu), a key part of the governing alliance, says it has 1.8 million members.
It forms part of what is called the Tripartite Alliance along with the the African National Congress (ANC) and the South African Communist Party (SACP).
The SACP has also called on Mr Zuma to go.
Cosatu General Secretary of Bheki Ntshalintshali told a media briefing that th…

Ignore The Thought And Be Of Help! Be Inspired By Annie~Joy

People pass comments like : if I give my money to the beggar, she will use it for rituals against me. My question is; what about the ones who won't use it for rituals and people get this perceptions that beggars are lazy and useless. 
I speak for them that, it is never their wish to be in such circumstance. Where life located them didn't Favor them and they begging on the streets depict they are urge to do something. Life didn't give them the choice to decide for their location.

Not all fingers are the same but all fingers work together for Good. To me, it is the responsibility of the rich person to help the poor. Be a blessing to the less privileged people today!!! It's about time you stop shedding tears in your heart when you see them sleeping on the streets but rather putting a smile awaited for ages.

No matter who's currently occupying 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Michelle Obama will always and forever be my first lady. To me, she epitomizes class, grace, strength, smarts, and slay... all while managing to walk the dogs, write college recommendation letters, end childhood obesity, deliver incredible(sometimes copied) speeches, and sit down for family dinner with Sasha, Malia, and President Barack Obama. Just call her Superwoman.
According to ,  her eight years in the White House were spent in style, too. She nailed every single campaign, rally, and State Dinner ensemble, never missing a beat, and managing to show love to international designers. And her longtime hairstylist, Johnny Wright, always made sure that her hair was laid, with the silkiest presses and the bounciest blowouts possible.

11yr old British boy of African descent is the country's youngest ever orchestra conductor

Matthew Smith may be a pint-sized 11yr old but don't judge him by his stature, the kid is a legend in the making. He became Britain's youngest ever orchestra conductor leading a 75-strong orchestra through a faultless rendition of the overture to Johann Strauss II’s Die Fledermaus.  What's more, he conducted the nine-minute piece entirely from memory and wasn't fazed by the 1,300 crowd at the Royal Concert Hall in Nottingham. Proud mum, Beverlyn Riley, 40 was all smiles as she watched her son. His genius was unlocked four years ago when he saw two violinists performing at the Pentecostal church he attends with his mother and told her that he wanted to be ‘just like them’. Mrs Riley who works as a catering assistant at Nottingham High School, approached the school’s senior string teacher Derek Williams who set Matthew up with an old violin.
Instinctively, Matthew placed his fingers in the correct place on the instrument and a star was born. Mr Williams said t…

The union of road transport operators in Ghana has announced a 15% increase in transport fares to take effect from Thursday, April 6, 2017.

Jointly signed by representatives of the Ghana Private Roads Transport Union (GPRTU) and Ghana Roads Transport Coordinating Council (GRTCC), the release asked transport operators across the country to comply with the new fares, and “post the fare list at their loading terminals so as to avoid any confrontation with the travelling public.”
The increment comes despite a reduction in the special petroleum tax rate from 17.5 percent to 15 percent and the abolishment of duty on the importation of spare parts.
The joint release from the GPRTU and GRTCC also asked the public to cooperate with the implementation of the new fares.
The fares cover intra-city, inter city and taxi operations. The upward review of fares is the first in 2017.

US prosecutor in death penalty row

The Florida governor has removed a prosecutor from 21 murder cases after she said she would no longer be seeking the death penalty.
Republican Governor Rick Scott said he was reassigning all Aramis Ayala's murder cases because her stance sent an "unacceptable message".
Ms Ayala, a Democrat covering Orlando, cited "legal chaos" as the reason for refusing to pursue execution in the case of a murdered policewoman.
Her decision sparked an outcry.
But there were also some who backed her, and a rally was held in her support last week in the state capital of Tallahassee.
On Monday, Mr Scott said: "State Attorney Ayala's complete refusal to consider capital punishment for the entirety of her term sends an unacceptable message that she is not interested in considering every available option in the fight for justice."
Ms Ayala, an elected prosecutor in central Florida's Ninth Judicial Circuit, accused the governor of abusing his authority and compr…
