POTUS is scheduled to sign the Music Modernization Act, while Mr. West is at the White House. The bill, which the House and Senate have already passed, updates licensing and royalties to artistes, songwriters and producers for music played on streaming services.

American actor, O’Shea Jackson Jr. – the oldest son of Ice Cube – has slammed Jussie Smollett over his staged homophobic attack.

Reacting to the Empire actor’s arrest and bail, O’shea Jackson questioned why he would pull such a stunt by trying to use different communities. He wrote;

“What upsets me about this Jussie situation is that people were genuinely worried about you man. And the things that you said happened could have led to some serious outcomes. People were prepared to fight for you bruh. Things coulda got ugly…… and you made it up.”

The world has plenty of real monsters. You don’t have to make up any. And what for? Just further dividing people for personal gain? It sucks for the people who actually have to deal with that type of hate.

Jussie Smollett who after the attack referred to himself as the ‘gay Tupac’ was also called to question by O’Shea Jackson Jr.

The actor and rapper questioned why Smollett had to involve Tupac’s name, he wrote;

“And why did you call yourself the gay Tupac. What does Tupac have to do with anything that happened to you? Did you do this to sell records bro? Did you fake a hate crime, Enrage the Black community. The LBGT community and anti-Trump community just to sell records bruh?”

“People could’ve gotten hurt. Thinking they’re protesting and standing up for you. This is not a game.”

Allegations of me planning to Islamize Nigeria is wicked – Buhari

Nigeria News

President Buhari has described allegations that he plans to Islamize Nigeria as wicked, deceptive, and ungodly.

Buhari stated this earlier today in a statement from his Special Adviser on Media and publicity, Femi Adesina.

The President stated that the allegation is coming up again as a result of the 2019 general elections. Read the statement below;

It has come to the notice of President Muhammadu Buhari, ahead of the forthcoming elections, that some unscrupulous Nigerians are again falsely and wickedly claiming that the administration has an agenda to impose Islam on Nigeria.

The objective is clearly to stoke up religious division for political gains. Some of these same persons made these devious and fabricated claims ahead of the 2015 election. They failed woefully.

The President strongly affirms the oath he took before the Nigerian people to faithfully defend the Constitution of Nigeria. That Constitution guarantees freedom of worship for every Nigerian. It is this guarantee that enables all Nigerians to practise their faiths or religion without hindrance.

President Buhari further affirms his commitment to freedom of religion and worship for all Nigerians, and that under no circumstance will any religion or faith be imposed on any Nigerian.

It is dangerous, deceptive and ungodly to play politics with religion.
