Skai Jackson’s Mum Warns Azealia Banks

How did Azealia Banks and Kiya Cole get tangled? It all began after Azealia Banks attacked former One Direction singer, Zayn Malik. Azealia hurled a bunch of racial slurs at the Pillowtalk singer, calling him “a hairy curry scented b***h” and a “Punjab.”

The rant was so extreme, Azealia lost her spot as a headline act on Rinse FM’s Born And Bred Festival. Skai Jackson thought Azealia was getting out of line too, and tweeted that she should simmer down.

Azealia was on a roll already, and turned her anger on the 14-year old. Azealia hurled insults at Skai and even dragged her mum into it, saying her mum had to perform oral sex to get her roles at Disney.

Skai wasn’t about to let a 10-year age difference between herself and Banks matter, and clapped back immediately.

Skai’s mother wasn’t impressed  either, and warned Azealia Banks to be careful of what she said.

@azealiabanks Please don’t do it to yourself!

‘I Don’t Want Exemption From Your ‘Ignorant’ Muslim Ban’ – London Mayor Slams Trump

Featured Image

The newly elected mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, is in a politically unfriendly mood as he has criticised Donald Trump’s stance on Islam, describing it as “ignorant” and warning it could make both the United Kingdom and the United States “less safe.”

READ ALSO: Behold Sadiq Khan, London’s First Ever Muslim Mayor

Khan, the capital’s first Muslim mayor made the comments on Tuesday after the US Presidential candidate hinted that the Londoner would be exempted from his proposed ban on Muslims entering the United States.

“Donald Trump’s ignorant view of Islam could make both our countries less safe — it risks alienating mainstream Muslims around the world and plays into the hands of the extremists,” Khan said.

“This isn’t just about me — it’s about my friends, my family and everyone who comes from a background similar to mine, anywhere in the world.”

“Donald Trump and those around him think that western liberal values are incompatible with mainstream Islam — London has proved him wrong.”

“I think to try and look for differences, to try and turn communities against each other is not conducive to living successfully and amicably,” Khan told TIME magazine in an interview published on Monday.

If Trump wins the U.S. election, Khan said, “I’ll be stopped from going there by virtue of my faith, which means I can’t engage with American mayors and swap ideas. Conservative tacticians thought those sorts of tactics would win London and they were wrong. I’m confident that Donald Trump’s approach to politics won’t win in America.”

It would be recalled, Trump, a strong candidate for the supreme position of the United States had told the New York Times on Monday that he was “happy” that Khan had been elected mayor of London.

When asked by the newspaper how his proposed temporary ban on Muslims entering the country would affect Khan, Trump replied:

“There will always be exceptions.”

“I was happy to see that,” he said, referring to Khan’s win.

“I think it’s a very good thing, and I hope he does a very good job because frankly that would be very, very good.”

Empowered Emojis: Google Designs Feminine Emojis To Represent Working Women

Featured Image

A new set of thirteen emojis have been designed by a four-team panel of Google’s engineers to better portray women who have a professional career.

The designers stated a New York Times post tagged “Emoji Feminism” as the motivation behind their new designs.

As young women are the highest users of emojis, the team hoped the new designs would “empower young women and better reflect the pivotal roles women play in the world”.

The emojis include, healthcare workers, scientists and businesswomen, women in technology, construction, farming and the food industry while the female musician emoji includes a homage to the late David Bowie – with a pink zig-zag on her face.

It has been presented to the Unicode consortium, the body which approves emojis as it’s the consortium’s duty to ensure all emojis display properly across the various platforms.

The term ’emojis’ means picture (e) and character (moji) in Japanese, these icons are mobile friendly and help tell a story when sending texts.

The term was added to the Oxford English Dictionary in 2013.

_89660239_89660238

Emoji Feminist, Amy Butcher wrote on New York Times:

“Where, I wanted to know, was the fierce professional working her way to tenure? Where was the lawyer? The accountant? The surgeon?

We are told we are the new generation of American women; no longer a minority, we are, in fact, the majority of breadwinners in American homes. And yet the best we can get is the flamenco [dancer].”

While the new set of emojis will be due for release later in the year, it’s still unknown if Unicode will approve Google’s designs in time to be included.

Bob Marley Still Speaks Through These Classic Songs

Featured Image

Reggae will never be just a genre of music to me, I’ve always seen and referred to it as a culture, because it’s more than a genre. It’s a lifestyle and Bob Marley lived it to the fullest.

Robert Nesta better known as Bob Marley, served as -and still is- a source of inspiration to a-lot of artists both locally & internationally with his trouble-freeing/positive music through the popular Jamaican culture known as Reggae.

According to reports, a symptom of cancer was found under the nail of Bob Marley’s toe, and he turned down his doctors advice, to amputate the toe due to his religious beliefs and he never stopped touring even though he knew ’bout his illness.

The rastafari Bob Marley later passed on to glory on the 11th of May, 1981 at Cedars of Lebanon Hospital in Miami (now University of Miami Hospital) at the age of 36 but left a strong statement i.e; “Money can’t buy life” (said it to his son Ziggy Marley).

One thing about “good” music, when it hits you, it stays with you forever, and that’s what Bob Marley’s music is about.

To celebrate his legacy, below are “some” of the classic records he released during his lifetime.

Suarez Worried He Would Not Fit Into Barcelona Style

Luis Suarez has revealed he was worried about not fitting into Barcelona’s playing style, when he joined in 2014.

In his debut season, the former Liverpool striker netted 25 times in 43 appearances.

This season, Suarez has scored 56 goals in 51 appearances for the Catalan club.

Upon joining from Liverpool, Suarez did not envision such a prolific spell, admitting he was troubled about fitting into the ‘tiki-taka’ style.

“I never imagined that I would be scoring goals here,” he told ESPN. “I never felt I would adapt to this team’s style of play the way I have.

“Sometimes they start the touches and I think that I can’t do that, that they will play it like that and I will just push it [toward the goal].”

ICYMI: I Won’t Press For Cameron’s Apology, But Return Of Stolen Money, Says Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari revealed that he would not be demanding for an apology from British Prime Minister, Mr. David Cameron over his diplomatic gaffe, but will have his eyes on the recovery of Nigeria’s stolen money and assets stashed in the United Kingdom.

READ ALSO: President Buhari Responds To Cameron’s Corruption Statement

Buhari’s statement on Wednesday morning came against the backdrop of the UK Prime minister’s description of Nigeria, along with Afghanistan as ‘fantastically corrupt’.

His words: “I am not going to demand an apology from anybody. What I am demanding is a return of assets … This is what I am asking for. What would I do with an apology? I need something tangible.”

Although, Buhari is still appalled at the unguarded and scathing remarks made by the British PM, he has, however, refused to criticise Cameron directly when he was asked about the blunder at the conference, as he has stuck to his guns of reclaiming Nigerian assets that had been fraudulently stripped from the country with the help of the United Kingdom.

There are strong indications that the Spokesman for the Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Organisation, Femi Fani-Kayode, may spend more nights in the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

This is coming on the heels of the obtainment of a remand warrant from a court by the anti-corruption agency on Tuesday in Abuja to further keep Fani-Kayode in custody to conclude investigations on several fraud cases concerning him before he is charged to court.

It was learnt that the remand warrant which the EFCC secured today will enable the anti-graft agency to keep the former minister beyond the stipulated time allowed by law.

Fani-Kayode, who was the former Minister of Aviation, is accused of receiving a sum of N840 million out of the N4 billion slush funds in the heat of the 2015 presidential election.

More findings say the former minister still has a case to attend to in the Lagos office of the EFCC.

“He will be in our custody for a few more days because we have multiple fraud charges against him,” an EFCC source said.

On whether Mr. Fani-Kayode’s was as confident in the interrogation room as he has been in public, the EFCC source said:

“He now knows that he is in big trouble and that investigators have gathered a lot of evidence against him.”

As a result of the developing case, Mr. Fani-Kayode will be transferred to Lagos to face investigators there as soon as possible.

A source familiar with the details told SIGNAL on Monday that both political heavyweights may be heading for a showdown over the development.

According to the source who did not want to be named, Atiku loaned Tinubu the sum of N1 billion in 2015 for the financing of deficits incurred during the APC presidential campaign with a promise to repay immediately after the elections. Crisis between the two titans began when months after the election, Tinubu refused to repay the debt, rebuffing Atiku’s attempts to broach the subject.

“Both men have managed to keep the issue out of the media space because of the sensitive nature, but there is a strong bone of contention between them. The issue is that Tinubu obtained a loan of N1 billion from Atiku during the 2015 presidential campaign and promised to repay the loan after the elections, but he’s not even ready to talk about it now and Atiku is sore pissed”, the source said.

Attempts by SIGNAL to contact Sunday Dare and Paul Ibe, spokespersons to Tinubu and Atiku respectively proved abortive at the time of filing this report.

However, further checks by SIGNAL through other relevant top level sources on Monday confirmed a brewing rift between the Jagaban of Borgu and the Turaki Adamawa over the said N1 billion loan.
