Nollywood actress, Toyin Abraham has welcomed a baby boy.

The news of her delivery came after pictures of her wedding to a colleague, Kolawole Ajeyemi, surfaced on social media platforms.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the 34-year-old filmmaker was previously married to Nigerian actor, Adeniyi Johnson, from 2013 to 2015.

Abraham had initially left her over three million fans on Instagram shocked days ago by deleting all of her posts on the platform.

The Auchi born actress started her acting career in 2003 and had since then produced and directed many movies.

Friends and colleagues have congratulated her on the birth of her son by posting photos from her baby shower.

Actress, Iyabo Ojo wrote, “this is the Lord’s doing and it is marvellous in our sight.”

Another Nollywood actress, Nkechi Blessing, who couldn’t contain her excitement wrote a very lengthy caption congratulating her friend.

“…Mrs Oluwatoyin Abosede Kolawole Ajeyemi is now a proud mother of a bouncing baby boy. My joy knows no bound right now.

“And to the man that brought this much happiness and everything laughter to your life, uncle may your star continue to shine forever,” she wrote.

A Stockholm court on Wednesday convicted US rapper A$AP Rocky of assault and handed him a suspended sentence over a street brawl in June, a case that outraged fans and sparked a diplomatic spat with US President Donald Trump.

The 30-year-old rapper, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, and two members of his entourage were found guilty of assaulting a 19-year-old in a fight in central Stockholm on June 30.

The three, who were in the Swedish capital for a concert, “assaulted the victim by hitting and kicking him as he lay on the ground. The artist has also thrown the victim to the ground and stepped on his arm,” the court wrote in its verdict, rejecting the defence’s argument of self-defence.

The three were “not in a situation where they were entitled to self-defence”, the court said.

Mayers was not present in Stockholm for the verdict.

Prosecutor Daniel Suneson had called for a six-month prison sentence for Mayers and two of his crew, while the defence argued they should be acquitted.

Considered a “flight risk”, Mayers was held in custody for a month while the case was investigated and throughout his trial.

But he was released after the close of proceedings on August 2, pending the verdict, and immediately returned to the United States.

Fans, fellow artists and even Trump had called for his release — with the US president’s intervention drawing complaints from Swedish politicians.

US Special Presidential Envoy for Hostage Affairs Robert C. O’Brien to attend the trial, who told reporters: “The president felt they shouldn’t have been detained, they were stalked.”

An online petition also called #JusticeForRocky garnered more than 640,000 signatures and supporters were urged to boycott Swedish brands such as Ikea.

Rapper felt ‘scared’

At his first performance on Sunday following his release, in Anaheim in California, the rapper thanked fans and called the experience in Sweden “scary” and “humbling”.

“I need y’all to keep praying for me,” he told the crowd, saying he hoped he would not have to return to serve a jail sentence.

The artist maintained his innocence, telling the court he acted in self-defence, saying he felt “scared” and that he and his entourage had repeatedly told the plaintiff to leave them alone.

Mayers conceded he threw the man to the ground and “kicked his arm”, but denied the prosecution’s claim that a bottle was used and insisted he only acted after the accuser and his friend began attacking his bodyguard.

The plaintiff, a Swedish resident born in Afghanistan, alleged he was attacked by Mayers and his entourage when he followed them to ask about a headphone set broken in an earlier scuffle with the rapper’s bodyguard.

Assault carries a maximum penalty of two years in prison in Sweden.

Brawl video published

In one video clip of the brawl published by US celebrity news outlet TMZ, the rapper can be seen throwing a young man to the ground and aiming several punches at him while he is down.

The court was also shown videos posted on the artist’s Instagram account, purporting to show the lead-up to the scrap.

Mayers appears to repeatedly ask the man and his friend to stop following him and his entourage. The prosecution argued that the Instagram videos were heavily edited.

Much of the trial also focused on whether a bottle was used as the plaintiff suffered cuts that medical examiners said seemed to be from glass.

In its verdict, the court said that Mayers and two members of his entourage’s actions were not severe enough to warrant more time in prison.

“The accused have no criminal record during the past five years… (and) there is no reason to fear that the accused are going to be repeat offenders,” it said.

Afro-fusion star, Damini Ogulu aka Burna Boy pulled stunning performance on global comedy show ‘The Daily Show’.

‘The Daily Show’ is an American late-night talk show that piques on satire and self-deprecatory humour to discuss socially and culturally relevant stories.

The show is currently hosted by South African comedian, Trevor Noah and has won 24 Primetime Emmy Awards.

Burna Boy, on Tuesday night, appeared alongside Mark Sanford, a former US representative and former Governor of South Carolina.

News Agency of Nigeria reports that the ‘African Giant’ performed hit tracks ‘Ye’ and ‘Anybody’, eliciting loud cheers from the audience.

He was dressed in a multicoloured striped outfit, a pair of glasses and a neck full of diamonds while rocking his signature braids.

In an interview with Noah, Burna Boy explained the reasons for his outburst over the Coachella poster in January.

The incident, which birthed the ‘African Giant’ moniker, saw Burna Boy accuse Coachella of disrespecting him by writing his name in small fonts.

Explaining the situation to Noah, he said, “I am looking for my name and I can’t find my name. I am like – am I really performing?

“They had to circle it for me. That’s never happened to me before. I am used to being the African giant.

“I didn’t like it and I expressed myself. Not just for that but so, everyone that comes after me won’t have to go through that,” he said.

Trevor Noah noted that people might not understand Burna Boy’s huge influence as an artist in Nigeria and in Africa, the continent with one of the world’s largest population.

NAN reports that in July, Burna Boy released an album titled ‘African Giant’, referencing the Coachella incidence. It was premiered on Jimmy Kimmel’s show.

Nigerian Afrobeat singer, Daniel Anidugbe, a.k.a Kizz Daniel, has released his long-anticipated new song ‘ Eko’

The Afrobeat singer made this announcement on his Instagram handle @iamkizzdaniel, where he dropped the following message, “Sakimakoparikaka !!! “EKO” audio out now !!!! ???????? #EKO
Visuals out 14th ”

The 25 year- old singer decided to post it on the Instagram page in order to excite his fans and also to inform them of his new project.

The Flyboy INC Boss released this glowing tribute to Lagos with all its curves and edges gloriously depicted on this song.

According to the singer, the song ‘Eko’ serves as a follow-up to his virally successful foul-mouthed, anti-cheating single, F..k You – which inspired the #F..kYouChallenge and the song was mixed by Swaps.

Kizz Daniel is a Nigerian singer and songwriter best known for his singles “Woju” and “Yeba”.

He signed a record deal with G-Worldwide Entertainment in 2013 but left the label following a publicised contract dispute and court case.

In November 2017, Kizz Daniel announced his split from his record label, G-Worldwide, and created his own label called FLYBOY I.N.C.

He was sued to court by the former record label but was not found guilty for any of the crimes he was accused of.

In June 2018, Kizz Daniel’s former record label G-Worldwide made a move to own the rights to the name “Kizz Daniel”.

The singer who has contributed to the entertainment industry has received numerous awards and nominated for various awards.

RnB star, R. Kelly, pleaded not guilty on Thursday in a Chicago courtroom to 11 new felony sex crime charges.

The charges were a refiling of one of the four cases of alleged abuse that prosecutors lodged against the singer earlier this year.

A grand jury last week increased the felony counts against the 52-year-old and upgraded some of the charges. He now faces five felony counts of aggravated criminal sexual assault.

If convicted of the most serious charges, Kelly would face mandatory sentences of six to 30 years in prison on each count.

Kelly, through his lawyer, pleaded not guilty during a short arraignment hearing. The next court date was set for June 26.

The singer’s attorney Steve Greenberg dismissed the new charges as a rehashing of old allegations.

“It’s the same case. It’s just they changed what they charged him with,” Greenberg told reporters at the courthouse, while again attacking Kelly’s accusers, saying “they aren’t victims.”

The 11 charges handed down by a Chicago grand jury are connected to the January 2010 alleged sexual assault and abuse of a person identified in court documents only as JP.

Three of the charges are for the sexual abuse of a child between 13 and 16 years old. In some of the counts, Kelly is accused of having threatened or used force against JP.

The singer is currently out on bail after paying 10 percent of a $1 million bond, as is required in the state of Illinois.

The presiding judge did not increase bail despite the more serious charges, because Kelly has appeared for all court dates as required.

Kelly has a decades-long history of abuse allegations, especially of underage girls.

He was acquitted in a child porn trial over a decade ago, and had maintained a steady fan base and continued to perform.

His fortunes changed after the docu-series “Surviving R. Kelly” led Chicago prosecutors to publicly seek out potential victims.

Prosecutors said they have DNA evidence and video of Kelly having sex with a 14-year-old girl.

Much of that evidence has not yet been shared with Kelly’s defence team, Greenberg said, adding that he didn’t expect a trial until “sometime next year at the earliest.”
