R&B King R Kelly sued over sex abuse claims and willful STD infection by 19 years old

Published

on

R Kelly is facing another sexual abuse lawsuit, the latest in a string of accusations that he coerced women into having sex with him.

Faith Rodgers alleges that the R&B star abused her “mentally, sexually and verbally”, filming her against her will in “deviant and compromising sexual contact”. She also alleges that the first time they had sex it was “non-permissive, painful and abusive”, and that he infected her with herpes without her knowing.

Kelly has not yet responded to these particular charges. He has consistently denied any wrongdoing, most recently calling the string of allegations, and the subsequent backlash from the Time’s Up movement, “a greedy, conscious and malicious conspiracy to demean him, his family and the women with whom he spends his time”.

Rodgers also alleges that Kelly locked her in rooms and cars to punish her “for failing to please [him] sexually and/or for perceived offenses and violations of his prescribed code of conduct”. The allegations are similar to others made against Kelly recently, from women who allege he held them against his will in a “cult”, where as well as being forced into sexual acts, the women had their diet and even use of the bathroom controlled by Kelly. Rodgers’ lawsuit describes her case as “run-of-the-mill R Kelly sexual abuse”.

Last year, police in Illinois and Georgia made a series of welfare checks on the residences where the women were living and found nothing illegal; in January 2017, one woman told police she was “fine and did not want to be bothered with her parents”. Kelly has previously settled out of court over other sexual abuse claims, and in 2008 he was found not guilty in the one case to make it to court, in which he faced charges of producing child pornography and having sex with an underage girl.

As the allegations have grown in number, pressure has grown on Kelly. A Chicago concert was cancelled this month following protests, and Spotify removed his songs from their own curated playlists as part of a new policy against “hateful conduct”. However, the policy hasn’t affected Kelly’s popularity – the number of weekly streams of his music has increased slightly since the policy change.

Jovi’s feud with MI and Sarkodie rifts a chicken-hearted 237 music industry

Published

on

The Feud between Ndukong Godlove aka Jovi and a set of self-acclaimed best African rappers is moving to another level and like any rap feud, it’s getting dirtier and nastier by the hour.

The Cameroonian rapper and arguably kamer’s King of hip-hop took offense with Nigerian heavyweight MI who said he (MI) is Africa’s best.

MI ignorantly invited more trouble for himself when he rolls out a list of countries with the best rappers in Africa, ignoring Cameroon and angering the man many believe should have been on the list of these super achievers in motherland Africa.

Jovi wasted no time to fire a cross border “missile” attack, taking to his favorite platform twitter to launch his tirade. Jovi says he is the best in Africa, adding that he has done a lot for the rap world and deserves the top spot even as he did not make MI’s top five rappers list in the continent.

He promised to “body” the rapper in the next 48 hours with a dis track for his crime in the rap community and MI replied with a tweet of his own.

Tweeting an emoji of some speakers sandwiched between popcorn and listening ears. Jovi followed-up his promise 48 hours later with a dis track – titled “Big Bang”.

The dis track sent his followers to social media overdrive and drawing other artists in the country and beyond into the fray-the fight has started.

“My enemies team together, thinking I will be bordered, but I kept acting like a man whose priorities are in order” Jovi sings in a track his critics say falls below the standard of a dis track.

His followers are however not buying it, haling their own as Africa’s finest and saying MI has outlived his usefulness in the continent.

“Don’t get it twisted that was not a diss song it is a God speaking and educating.. as we over like for misunderstand and judge/ conclude base on ur misunderstanding hence undermind ours. Gods don’t diss they educate and teach how to love #Godsangle #MbokoGod #BigBang “ A mboko gang member tweeted

Cameroonian artists have been divided over the feud between Jovi and Naija’s MI and now Ghana’s duel- Sarkodie and Lyrical Joe.

Rapper Ko-C, a man many say mirrors Sarkodie’s rap style and is the next big thing in the continent has taken to twitter to defend his fellow countryman, saying he believes Jovi is the best in the continent

But very few people can attest to the influence Jovi has in the rap game in 237 then Ko-C who has had a fight of his own with the Mboko god as he is adorably called by his followers.

For a man whose music is next to religion for his millions of fans and his lyrics street anthems amongst many, there is no doubt he is one of Africa’s finest and requires no validation from a foreign land.

Artist Blaise B also took to twitter to support their own, tweeting

But the silence and fear from many back home in the face of an onslaught against one of their and truly the industry they represent has been appalling.

Some little known kamer rappers embarrassingly took to the studios to release a dis track against Jovi instead, perhaps “dising” him for standing up to defend them.

There is no doubt that Jovi has more than enough tool in his nuclear toolbox to eliminate any home-based adversary or potential adversary in a career fight- the question many now ask is how far can his strike go beyond the borders of Cameron as the feud goes international.

Jovi’s music has come to redefine rap culture in Cameroon and beyond.

He has created his brand and defended Cameroon vigorously beyond the country’s border, protecting the territory he believes he reigns large a king even as some locals strenuously compete for the position with him

His Music resonates with the people in the streets, his lyrics are violent and his gang deadly-epitomizing a true rap culture.

In the early hours of Saturday, September 21st, 2019, Jovi upped the antic in his twitter feud which is having an effect in the studio and resonating across the continent, challenging Ghana’s rap kingpin Sarkodie for a fight of their own.

“It would have been a lil more interesting if you were the one in the booth.

Just remember we gotta do it English because we got a lot of people watching, I myself I left a couple of languages behind for this one” the rapper tweeted, blasting Sarkodi’s culture of doing his game in his native tongue.

The Ghanaian superstar had fired a warning shot by tweeting a recently released dis track of his fellow countryman lyrical Joe aimed at Jovi an hour earlier in apparent support to MI.

The Mboko gang-a brand name for Jovi’s followers once again embraced the fight even as critics worry it could be a career-ending one for their idol back home given the rap status of Sarkodie in the continent and beyond.

Denzel tweeted his worry with the attack on Sarkodie, saying” You’ve got HUUUUGGEEEE f*cken balls coming after a big fish like Sarkodie tho. And I haven’t seen u disrespect him so far so I’ve got to give u that. Good luck. You might need it” and Jovi fired back immediately in a tit-for-tat which leaves no one spared.

While the feud, for now, involves Jovi and the rest, many back home who aspire to gain international attention are increasingly under pressure to support their own and help put the industry on the world stage-at least.

Some are worry, however, whether to support their own or stay on the sidelines in a battlefield of firing rap missiles pupping from all direction with everybody a potential target.

“I did not receive a dime from Samuel Eto’o” Arafat’s Mother

Published

on

The Burial of DJ Arafat has come and gone, but his mother Valentine Logbo, alias Tina Glamour decided to overtly debunk rumours that former indomitable lions striker, Samuel Eto’o gave her 45 million France CFA for the burial of Yorobo.

“I want to thank all those who assisted me from far or near for the funeral of my child. No amount of gifts, no money, no diamond can bring my son. But people should stop. Samuel Eto’o did not give me 42 millions France CFA. He only gave me his perfume. I perceived it on my body for two days”.

She further explained that the allegations caused her to abandon her home for days. “A lot of pressure was mounted on me for receiving money from Samuel Eto’o”. She said.

This is her first official declaration after the burial of DJ Arafat.

Editorial: DJ Arafat built a personality cult; we only discovered after his demise

Akombi Lionel-Editor at large, entertainment

Dj Arafat might be gone but the imprint of his shade has been written in the sand of posterity. The legacy he has instituted is an Olympic flame that will spark out through generation and will serve as an internal inspiration for many young people who look up to him as their hearts

 Calling Dj Arafat a superstar might just be a scratch on the surface of his personality. I will rather prefer that overused encomiums “hero” considering the hurt, dismay, consternation, controversy and   trend of events that have transpired since the announcement of his demise.

From the saga at the hospital where hundreds of fans broke into the hospital to confirm his demise, the number of internationally acclaimed superstars from within and without the continent who have been able to reach out to his family with heavy financial packages, a rare occurrence in Africa, not leaving out the thousands of fan who came from within and without the African continent who turned out to bid farewell to the star boy Arafat

The Ivorian legend was indeed a continental icon. On Friday, thousands of people attended a concert in the main city, Abidjan to pay tribute to the musician. He was then laid to rest in a private ceremony on Saturday.

But images on social media showed fans battling police who were preventing them from entering the site. Police resorted to using tear gas to try and disperse those who had gathered outside where the ceremony was taking place.

Other images suggest that some had managed to reach DJ Arafat’s coffin.

“We wanted to see the body of our idol before the tomb was sealed,” one unnamed fan told AFP news agency.

What makes him so special?

DJ Arafat was one of the most popular African musicians in the Francophone world, and had been referred to as the “king” of coupé-décalé (cut and run), an Ivorian form of dance music.

He came to symbolize the flashy, well-dressed lifestyle associated with the music, which features fast percussion, deep bass and hip hop-style vocals

His dance steps, dressing style and hair inspired millions of youths who aspire to be like him and identify with his music.
