Featured Image

Wilshere joined Bournemouth on a season-long loan on Deadline Day in a bid to gain more playing time 

Wilshere made his Cherries debut against West Brom on Saturday as he came on in the 63rd minute to help his side grab a 1-0 win. 
“Jack’s a massive name and I think a lot of people did not expect him to come here,” he told Sky Sports News HQ.
“He’s given the lads a bit of a lift and he’s come on Saturday and performed well, so I’m sure if he starts on Saturday he’s going to help us get a good result.”

“It’s nice to show that we can attract big names,” he added.

“He’s played for a massive club like Arsenal and there’s great players there. All the lads know the quality that Jack has got and he can only improve us.”

​Moussa Sissoko wants to bring power to Tottenham to help them win the league, but says he is not at his optimum level.

Spurs signed Sissoko on Deadline Day on a five-year deal, and the France international made his first appearance for the club when he came off the bench in their 4-0 win over Stoke on Saturday.

The 27-year-old represented France as they reached the final of Euro 2016 this summer but did not play for Newcastle in their Sky Bet Championship campaign prior to his White Hart Lane arrival, and Sissoko insists he is giving everything to get back to his best.

“I can’t tell you a date when I will be at my peak level, but my fitness is becoming better with every game, and I will work at the training ground to be 100 per cent as soon as possible,” Sissoko told the Evening Standard.

“I came here to help them so I hope we have a great season and finish top of the league. They played very well all last season,” he added.

Featured Image

​Manchester United’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic has defended team-mate Paul Pogba, saying envious critics will be proved wrong.

“All the jealous people who talk about him will swallow all of the words they have said about him,” Ibrahimovic told SFR Sport.

“He will only improve and will get everyone behind him. My relationship with Paul is easy: I speak, he listens. Paul is a player with a lot of talent.”

Pogba has not yet scored or made an assist in his opening three Premier League games since returning to United, who slipped to their first top-flight defeat under Jose Mourinho against Pep Guardiola’s City side. 

While Ibrahimovic, 34, has enjoyed an immediate impact since signing for United this summer, the Swede encouraged patience when it comes to Pogba’s performances. 

“Now, you have to be realistic, people are putting a lot of pressure on Paul,” said Ibrahimovic. “His transfer created a huge amount of buzz. 

“I didn’t know Paul before and, now that I do, I can tell you he’s someone who works enormously. He really wants to improve and he has a super attitude. But you mustn’t forget he’s young. That’s all I can say.”

Boity Thulo Raises Eyebrows As Her House Goes Up For Sale

Featured Image

Media personality, Boity Thulo has had “her house” put up for sale and many are wondering, “why?”. 

Ntombizodwa Makhoba for channel24 reported on Sunday, September 11 2016, that a deed search for Miss Thulo’s property which she allegedly bought in May 2016 did not list her as its owner.

The house is located at Midstream Ridge Estate in Centurion, Gauteng, one of the nine provinces in South Africa.

In fact, there are no properties registered in Boity Thulo’s name anywhere in the country.

Makhoba added that the R3.75 million property which is listed on is currently occupied.

All efforts to confirm the identity of the new occupants or reach Boity has been futile.

Thulo raised brows after the monthly bond of between R35,000 and R40,000 for the house became public.

Many speculated she had a blesser – South African for sugardaddy – who paid the bills as earnings from her job description couldn’t meet the price tag for the house.

Boity Thulo

On the 6th of May 2016, Boity asserted she bought herself the Centurion property in celebration of her 26th birthday.

She shared the news on Twitter with a photograph of herself holding a “sold” sign with the tweet,

“Never in my wildest‚ most far-fetched dreams did I ever think that God would do more for me than what I prayed for.

I am constantly left gobsmacked at how God continues to shows off His love through my life.

This wasn’t a part of the plan, but here I am‚ able to gift myself with a house at the age of 26. I am in complete awe. To God be the glory.”

According to City Press, Amanda Fair of Dormehl Property Group who reportedly sold the house to the 26-year-old confirmed she knew Thulo’s identity, but declined to give more details regarding the property.

With all these new information, it seems someone either didn’t buy what they claim they bought or there’s a dose of controversy trailing Ms Thulo’s property.

Either way, we’ll unearth the truth.

Boity Thulo is the co-host of’s music show, Club 808. She’s also hosting the MTV show Ridiculousness Africa alongside South African actor Thomas Gumede and Nigerian comedian Basketmouth.

Mandoza – real name, Mduduzi Tshabalala – is thanking his fans for their prayers as he battles with brain cancer. 

The Kwaito hip-hop artist is famous for his 2000 hit song Nkalakatha.

He relayed his gratitude at a “thank you” concert for SABC, published on the station’s Youtube channel, Saturday, September 10, 2016.

After enduring recurrent pain and bleeding in his right eye, reported that in June 2015, Mandoza was diagnosed with a type of skin cancer called squamous cell carcinoma.

Mpho Explains Her Family’s Struggle Since Mandoza’s New Diagnosis

Mpho said to Shanaaz Prince for

About two weeks back he complained on severe headaches and problems with his eye, not the same eye as before and we decided to go see an optometrist.

It was like history was repeating itself because it sounded very similar to the last time. The optometrist couldn’t find anything wrong, but sent him for an MRI scan.

To their horror, the test revealed that the cancer was back. It had developed into a brain tumor. It’s a serious condition but not critical at the moment, so my husband is at home and like before, we believe that we’ll make it through this again.

At some point, all of this does take its toll on you but in all honesty, I’m stronger for it. My faith in the Lord has got me through many things and it will get us through this too, He has managed to provide.

We’ve decided to send out a press release and announce this more publicly because we’ve figured that the more prayers we can get the better.

Regardless speculations trailing Mandoza’s ill health that he might not be performing at some of his shows, confirmed the South African artist will still be performing at a scheduled event on 24 September, 2016, at the Orlando Stadium in Orlando Soweto.

Zidane: Real Madrid Are Not Favourites For The UCL

Featured Image

Zinedine Zidane does not believe Real Madrid are favourites for the champions league, as they look to defend their trophy.

Los Blancos beat domestic rivals Atletico Milan on penalties to win their 11th UCL trophy.

They return to continental competition against Sporting Lisbon. And Zidane does not think they qualify as favourites.

“I wouldn’t say we are favourites,” the French World Cup-winner told a pre-match news conference. “There are a lot of teams who can win it. You have to compete, you have to play. We are ready and we have a tough game against a good footballing side who will turn up looking to put in a good perfoemance.

“Being in the Champions League comes with the job. The players know the objective out on the pitch is to always win.

“If we’re taking part in a game it is to win. It’s to advance, to go further, to improve.

“We know it’s not meant to be easy. In fact, it will be harder than last season because whenever you go to play at a stadium against any team you are the defending champions. I think every single game will be tough, starting with Wednesday night’s fixture.”

No team has retained the Champions League since the tournament rebranded and switched to a group-stage format and Zidane feels a weight of expectation has played a part in this peculiarity.

“After you’ve won a title, people expect more from you,” he said. “They expect you to win again.

“Every game is harder because demarnds are greater and we expect a very complicated game [against Sporting].

“The secret to success is to work hard every day, be ready.”

Zidane added: “I know I’ve got a great team, a great squad, great players and if we all work a bit more each day I’m sure we’ll have a greater chance of accomplishing all our objectives.”

4,904 Civil Servants Recruited By Jonathan May Lose Their Jobs

Featured Image

At least 4,904 civil servants, who were recruited by the Federal Civil Service Commission in the former President Gooduck Jonathan led government, are on the verge of losing their jobs following a query on the exercise.

The Punch gathered that the body language displayed on Monday by the Federal Civil Service Commission (FCSC) with respect to the development, had led to a crisis in the civil service.

It was learnt that about 247 of the affected workers had petitioned the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC) over a plan by the FCSC to sack them.

It was also gathered that the Acting Executive Chairman of the Federal Character Commission, Dr. Shettima Abba, had queried the Chairman of the FCSC, Mrs. Joan Ayo, for alleged violation of the principle of federal character in the employment of the civil servants in a letter dated May 3, 2016.

According to Abba, the recruitment – between 2013 and 2015 – was characterised by a flagrant abuse of the Federal Character principle.

His words: “The Federal Character Commission has viewed and observed with concern the recruitment exercises undertaken by the Federal Civil Service between 2013 and 2015, which glaringly is lopsided and grossly abused the principle of Federal Character to which all institution have subscribed.

“The recruitment which recorded the engagement of about 4,904 workers, threw away all common sense and wisdom of national cohesion and integration by favouring some states to the detriment of others.

“We are worried that if this trend is allowed to continue, then some sections of the country may not only feel alienated but may feel insecure by the action of people in authority.

“It is inconceivable and a gross injustice for a geopolitical zone to be allocated 33.6 per cent of the total candidates recruited as against 26.2 per cent for three zones combined, North-East, North-West and North-Central.

“We further request without prejudice that all processes must involve the Federal Character Commission for advice and strict adherence to the principle of federal character as contained in our circular on guidelines and procedure for recruitment.”

Golovkin Prepared To Face Saunders

Featured Image

Undefeated Gennady Golovkin has stayed he will welcome a fight against Billy Joe Saunders, after his victory over Kell Brook.

The Kazakh boxer retained his IBF and WBC titles with a fifth round TKO and is the undisputed WBA ‘Super’ middleweight champion.

Billy Joe Saunders is also undefeated and holds the WBO title. He has also stated he will welcome a unification bout against GGG.

Golovkin said in the aftermath of his win over Brook that he wanted to unify the middleweight division and was targeting a clash with Saunders, and he now appears ready to answer the challenge.

The 34-year-old said: “I want a fight with him and I am open for everybody I think now he’s ready.

“It’s the business, you know he talks too much. It’s a very good fight for TV and the fans. Why not?”

Boxing fans would also like to see Golovkin face Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez, but he says the Mexican is refusing to get in the ring with him.

“Of course I want a fight with him,” he said. “[There is] talk every time, everybody asks me when will I fight Canelo. It’s not my fault, it’s his fault. I’m ready. I said ‘come on’.

“Absolutely [he’s preventing the fight from happening]. Of course I want him.”

Miley Cyrus Spills Some Honest Truths As She Covers ELLE USA’s October Issue

Featured Image

In ELLE USA’s October 2016 Issue, Miley Cyrus reveals several truths about herself, such as, she’ll never walk the red carpet again because people are hungry.

The Wrecking Ball singer disclosed to ELLE’s Amanda FitzSimons, “I will never do a red carpet again. Why, when people are starving, am I on a carpet that’s red? Because I’m ‘important’? Because I’m ‘famous’? That’s not how I roll. It’s like a skit—it’s like Zoolander.”

Miley looks very pretty on the cover as well as the editorials. Its probably one of her most honest covers yet – no drama, no antics.


Miley Cyrus Reveals Why She Joined The Voice

In addition to skipping the red carpet, the Disney-star said she joined the likes of Alicia Keys, Blake Shelton, and Adam Levine as a judge on The Voice because she wanted to do something where she was “really talking”, rather than somebody talking to her for five seconds.

The 23-year-old who has no publicist and shares her story without the press said she’s strictly on Instagram and doesn’t know how to use Snapchat.

When ELLE’s Amanda FitzSimon’s asked her if she was on the video-sharing app, she said, “No. I want to be. I don’t know how to use it. I feel like I’ll be an old lady that’s too held back, because I don’t keep up with it.”


Miley Cyrus’s full interview can be found in ELLE’s October issue or here, available, on newsstands in select US cities starting Wednesday, September 14, and nationwide on Tuesday, September 20, 2016.
