LISTEN UP: Former Nkasei Member, Naa Kay Premieres ‘Aseda Ka’

Naa Kay, former member of award winning Hiplife duo Nkasei, after switching from secular music to the gospel music scene, has debuted ‘Aseda Ka’.

There has been a positive turnaround in Naa Kay’s life and he now aims to inspire his fans with passioned rhythmic gospel music.

When asked about the switch to Gospel music, Naa Kay writes, “I have come to understand that God is purposeful; everything that he created, he made them for a reason, and every situation that He allows in our lives is for His good purpose. By His grace and mercies, I have come to understand I was created for a purpose and I believe God has started answering my prayers by revealing to me what my purpose is on this earth.”

“My gospel music is not the generic gospel music, it's not the ‘spiritual’ praises and worship music”, Naa Kay added. “It’s more of inspiring and encouraging people to move from places of darkness (i.e. hopeless life) to a fulfilling life in Christ Jesus.
Every situation or ‘problem’ th…

Annie~Joy writes: She Gave Many Reasons To Live And Make Life Better.

It's sad to acknowledge a soul when he or she is dead. It could have being better when she was alive. You might not known her but many did. She was born in South Africa and lived there. She was the first black child to be diagnosed with PROGERIA and the doctors had always predicted her dead for quite long. She was predicted to die at the age of 13years but lived to her 18years. Her life was filled with miracles. She finally kicked the bucket few days after she celebrated her 18th birthday. She was a media personality and a Great motivational speaker. 
She was called "ONTLAMETSE PHALATSE ", I saw the need to  base on her story to motivate you. She might had felt less privileged because of the genetic disease that gave her that physical appearance. Yet she didn't give up and didn't underestimate herself rather she was motivating souls . She definitely might have met rejection on the way, one way or the other because of her looks but today the world cel…

Tyga Hauled Away by Police Outside Hollywood Nightclub

Tyga -- the one-name rapper best known for dating Kylie Jenner -- was handcuffed early Wednesday morning after a traffic stop, CNN has confirmed. 
He was pulled over around 1:30 a.m., shortly after leaving Hollywood's Avenue nightclub, according to LAPD Public Information Officer Liliana Preciado.


Tyga, whose real name is Michael Ray Stevenson, was driving a Mercedes G-Series with temporary tags when officers stopped him. Preciado told CNN that due to all the paparazzi at the location, they transported Tyga to their Hollywood station to conduct a field sobriety test.

Anyone transported in a police car is routinely handcuffed, Preciado said.

Tyga was released after passing the sobriety test and was cited for a minor traffic violation, she said.

Putin slams Trump ties as top diplomats spar on Syria

The trust between Washington and Moscow has "deteriorated" since Donald Trump was elected US president, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday, as the Kremlin dismissed US calls to abandon Syrian President Bashar al-Assad as "short-sighted" and "absurd".
The comments came as Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov called the Trump administration to clarify its policies as he opened a fraught meeting with his American counterpart, Rex Tillerson.
"One could say that the level of trust on a working level, especially on the military level, has not improved but has rather deteriorated," Putin said in an interview broadcast on Russian television.
Putin doubled down on Russia's support for Assad, repeating denials that Syria's government was to blame for a suspected gas attack last week on a rebel-held town, adding that it may have been faked by Assad's enemies.
Moments earlier, Lavrov greeted Tillerson with unusually icy rem…

Vodafone scraps roaming fees in much of Europe

Vodafone has scrapped roaming charges for UK customers in 40 countries, meaning they can use their plans there without additional costs.
However, the new terms are being applied initially only to new or upgraded contracts.
The EU is expected to abolish roaming charges for its 28 member states in June.
Countries in Vodafone's roam-free destinations list include non-EU states such as Norway, Iceland and Turkey.
Beyond these territories, mobile phone users will be charged £5 per day to use UK plans in 60 states including the United States, Russia, China and India.
Vodafone rival Three already offers free roaming in 42 countries on advanced plans.
"This is a pre-emptive strike, if you like, before the EU regulations kick in," said tech analyst Mark Newman at ConnectivityX.
He told the BBC that tightening regulations on roaming charges had "absolutely hurt" companies such as Vodafone in recent years.
To compensate, many were now increasing the base cost of plans to recoup…

Blame me for NDC’s defeat- Mahama

Former President John Mahama has asked critics within his party to directly hold him responsible for the loss of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the 2016 general elections.
In a meeting with his former appointees on March 28, the former leader said: “The cause of our loss is multifaceted…Of course, as the General who led us into battle, I take ultimate responsibility for our losing the election, and so if it will satisfy those people, blame me for the loss.
“We must continue to defend that legacy of that government..let’s use this opportunity to learn from our mistakes in 2016 and make sure we don’t make those same mistakes again”.
Mr. Mahama further added the need to rally together as quickly as possible to go into the 2020 elections stronger than before.

Caitlyn Jenner drops bombshell in new book, claims Robert Kardashian confessed to him that he knew O. J. Simpson was guilty of killing his wife

The Kardashians will definitely not like this! Caitlyn Jenner has dropped a bombshell in her upcoming memoir, Secrets of My Life, claiming that Kris Jenner's ex husband, Robert Kardashian when he was alive, confessed to him that he knew O. J. Simpson was actually guilty of killing his estranged wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, her friend, and a restaurant waiter, yet chose to defend him in spite of that.
Bruce Jenner, now Caitlyn Jenner, married Kris, the ex-wife of Robert Kardashian, and years after that, the criminal trial began for O. J. Simpson. In the book obtained by RadarOnline, there are claims that Caitlyn disclosed that the late attorney made the confession to Bruce during a car ride in the late 90s.

"I would’ve been okay with it if they had gotten him in the first trial," Caitlyn claims Robert told her. The implication was obvious that he believed O.J. was guilty," she wrote in her book.  Caitlyn claims she knew O.J. Simpson very well before the murde…

A Professor at Washington University plans to use Kanye West in a case study for mental illness

Not long ago, Washington University introduced a class for students centered around the politics of Kanye West. Now, for his final lecture on the course this semester, Dr. Jeffrey McCune will use Kanye West in a case study for mental illness.  Professor McCune explains the idea behind the lecture saying,  'ultimately what I’m getting at in this lecture is not just about Kanye, it’s also about the larger notion of crazy and how we utilize it”. He adds that  “I want to give people permission to be enraged. Give people permission to be upset, to be angry, to be frustrated. Give people permission to have moments where they break. Give people permission to have moments where they experience depression. I want to give them permission to have those moments without being characterized as being some type of deviant figure in the community. I don’t want to take away that experience and call it crazy. It’s reasonable, and it must be addressed with love, compassion, care, generosity.…

Melania Trump wins damages from Daily Mail over 'escort' allegation

The UK's Daily Mail newspaper has agreed to pay damages and costs to the first lady of the United States over an article about her modelling career.
The newspaper had reported allegations that Melania Trump once worked as an escort, but later retracted the claims.
The story was published during the US election campaign last year.
Mrs Trump accepted damages and an apology from the newspaper at London's High Court.
She filed lawsuits against the Daily Mail newspaper in the United Kingdom, and its digital operation Mail Online in the United States. 
The US suit, filed last year, sought damages of $150m (£120m). The amount accepted by Mrs Trump in London was not disclosed in court.
However, reports suggest the payout was closer to $3m, including legal costs and damages. It is understood it will also settle the case in New York.
In its apology, the Daily Mail acknowledged it had published "allegations that she provided services beyond simply modelling".
The article also …

Annie~Joy writes: Access Without Permission. #BeInspired!

You don't like the situation you are in, yet you keep saying God will work it out while you haven’t communicated to GOD about it. I came to tell you that until you go down before HIM in communication (prayer), you are going to rot in the situation you are in. Let me tell you, GOD doesn't need access before coming in but he needs your permission.  Why do I say this? The Bible said: And God knew what the Israelites were going through and knew how he was going to work it out but He kept silence until they began to call onto him. That was when Moses came into the picture. The Bible said: and the disciples heard about the disappearance of JESUS CHRIST from the tomb. While they were in the upper room communicating to GOD concerning the where about of the body of JESUS THE SON OF MAN. All of a sudden, the man JESUS showed himself in the room.  He didn't use the main door neither did he request for the keys to the door nor did he knock. He was just there! The reason why…

Khloe Kardashian Talks Kim's Robbery, Reveals She's Ready to Marry Tristan Thompson: 'We've Talked About It'

Khloe Kardashian is getting real. The 32-year-old reality star opened up about everything from marriage, to body image, to Caitlyn Jenner and sister Kim Kardashian's robbery in the latest issue of ES Magazine -- where she also shows off her fit physique in a Good American jacket and curiously, no pants.
If her lack of clothing says anything about her interview, however, it's that she's not hiding anything -- even when it comes to Kim's scary Paris robbery.

"I get really angry when people blame her for her robbery -- I think that is the most irresponsible accusation," Khloe told the magazine. "I don't care how little or how much you have, nobody deserves to be violated and robbed and assaulted and traumatized. I got very frustrated with that and [the suggestion that] 'Oh, this was scripted' or 'We planned it.' What is wrong with human beings?"
"[Kim] is one of the strongest women I've ever met. We're not people…

Miley Cyrus apparently hacked as private photos leak

Nude photos of Miley Cyrus have seemingly been hacked and leaked online. Gossip Cop has reached out the singer’s rep for a comment.
The naked pictures were posted on the website Celeb Jihad, which has a history of publishing private nude photos of celebrities. A few of the pictures feature the singer undressed in a sauna, while another image shows her wearing overalls while topless. There are also a handful of other photos of Cyrus in skimpy outfits. 
Although the singer has willfully exposed herself in the past during concerts, on social media, and in photo shoots, this new crop of material appears to be stolen from her private collection. Gossip Cop has reached out to Cyrus’s rep to find out if legal action will be taken.
As Gossip Cop reported, Celeb Jihad removed nude photos of Amanda Seyfried that leaked last month after the actress’s attorney threatened to take legal action against the site. Topless photos of Lucy Hale were also taken down from the site after her lawyer…

Nigeria road safety commander cut hair of female employees

Nigeria's road safety organisation has disciplined a senior commander after he was filmed punishing female employees by cutting off their long hair.
Photos showing the male commander taking a pair of scissors to the women's hair at an inspection parade sparked outrage online.
There are rules governing the hairstyles of female staff at the Federal Road Safety Corp (FRSC).
But a spokesman said the officer's action was "outside" the FRSC mandate.
Lauretta Onochie, an aide to Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari, condemned the haircuts as a "humiliation of women" in a post on Twitter.
Andrew Kumapayi, regional commander for the FRSC in the southern Rivers State, reportedly carried out the punishment at an early-morning parade in the city of Port Harcourt on Monday.
He has not given any comment. 
An official guide for female staff at FRSC parades says they must "maintain a hairstyle that can be tucked into their beret", but does not mention a ban on l…
