Deejaying is a very lucrative venture – iPhone DJ

One of Ghana’s finest disc jockeys who is happily changing the narrative of deejaying using technology, Otoo Mensah known in the entertainment circles as iPhone DJ, has disclosed that the venture is very lucrative.
Speaking on Upside Down, Citi TV’s lifestyle variety show on Sunday, he explained that one can make a good living out of deejaying if they position themselves well.“I will say DJing is a very lucrative job. I feel like there are many segments that make up the entire industry of DJing so it depends on where you want to go. I’m doing more like an event DJ. I like the nightlife and seeing people happy. Some people do radio, and they are paid to promo songs so you can imagine if every artiste is paying to promo their songs,” he said.

He elaborated on the need for people to acquire skills and proper branding in any career.

“It depends on how you build yourself up. I feel it’s a climbing step. When I started, people didn’t give me anything. I used to play free shows; they will throw…

Cristiano Ronaldo’s home broken into as thief ‘gets in through garage door’

Police are reportedly investigating a burglary at Cristiano Ronaldo’s home in Madeira, Portugal.

The thief is said to have got into the property in the island capital Funchal through an open garage door.

A signed Juventus shirt is said to have been among items taken.

A relative of the footballer’s raised the alarm on Wednesday, October 7, according to respected island paper Diario de Noticias Madeira.

Police are already understood to have visited the property and are said to have identified the thief, described as someone who is already known to them, from CCTV cameras. No arrests have yet been made.

Juventus striker Cristiano spent the first part of the coronavirus lockdown earlier this year staying on the top two floors of the house with his partner Georgina Rodriguez and children after Serie A football was suspended.

Nigerian 'makes final shortlist' in WTO leadership bid

The World Trade Organization is due to announce on Thursday the final two candidates from a shortlist of five to lead the agency.

Reports suggest they are both women - Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala of Nigeria and Yoo Myung-he of South Korea.

The WTO has never been led by a woman or an African. The hope is that having an African head the organisation could boost the continent’s trade, which has stagnated at 2% to 3% of the global average.

The successful candidate is expected to be announced next month.

The new director general will have to deal with the US-China trade dispute and increased global protectionism.

President Donald Trump's administration has also blocked the appointment of judges to the WTO's main dispute body, badly impairing one of the organisation's key functions.BBC

Men with deep voices 'more likely to cheat', new research shows

According to new research, men with deeper voices are less committed in relationships and more likely to cheat.

The findings from Southwest University in Chongqing, China, conducted experiments with 116 men and 145 women.

Participants - with an average age of 20 - had the pitch of their voices measured and were asked questions about their attitudes to monogamy and commitment.

Researchers said: "Our findings demonstrated that masculine men are more likely to engage in infidelity and commit less to their romantic relationships compared with feminine men."

But the results, published in the Personality and Individual Differences journal, found no link when applying the same to women.

Researchers have suggested increased testosterone may be a factor - with significantly more women finding men with deep voices attractive.

They wrote: "Testosterone and the characteristics dependent on testosterone can be reliable indicators of quality-dependent conditions or behaviours…therefore, me…
