Janet Jackson took to Twitter on Monday night to make several big announcements about her family and her return to the stage.
Yeezy bounces back with a whooping 17 minutes new version of his song Bed.
Kanye West dropped an extended, 17-minute version of his 2007 song, “Bed” on his SoundCloud account Tuesday.
Faded Ugandan musician Qute Kaye has been reborn.
Famous for his single, “Ginkese”, Kaye has decided to turn away from his sinful ways and give his life to Jesus Christ.
He made the life-changing decision on Thursday as he sought salvation at renowned Pastor Robert Kayanja’s church, Rubaga Miracle Centre.
This happened at the ongoing crusade by Pr. Kayanja dubbed “77 Days of Glory”.
The singer revealed that his hunger for fame and money had led him to do despicable things including visiting shrines and witch doctors where he made sacrifices.
However, he has had enough of that life and is now seeking new beginnings.
In scenes reminiscent of Mean Girls, Adele broke her Grammy for Album of the Year in half on stage at the award ceremony on Sunday night so she could give the crowning part to Beyoncé.
Adele, who also won the Song of the Year award, explained how she felt Lemonade was a more deserving winner than her own 25.
“I can’t possibly accept this award,” she said during her acceptance speech. “The Lemonade album was just so monumental, Beyoncé. It was so monumental and well thought-out and beautiful and soul-bearing… we appreciate that. All of us artists here adore you. You are our light.”
She later added backstage: “I thought it was her year. What the fuck does she have to do to win Album of the Year?”
Adele may have gotten the idea from Mean Girls, in which Lindsay Lohan’s protagonist Cady Heron breaks her Spring Fling queen crown into pieces and hands them to the other contestants (though the speaker part of the Grammy actually unscrews).
It is essentially de rigueur to extol Beyoncé at award shows by this point, Kanye West having famously intervened during one of Taylor Swift’s VMAs acceptance speeches to point out that B is the more deserving winner.
Adele won the night’s biggest awards, though there were also multiple wins for Chance the Rapper and Drake. Beyoncé picked up Best Urban Contemporary Album for Lemonade.
Nope. Lady Gaga wasn’t having it when she caught wind of some haters trying to body shame her for how she looked during her spectacular Super Bowl LI halftime performance. Reacting to a string of tweets on Sunday night (Feb. 5) claiming she had a “muffin top” or “beer gut,” the singer shut it down.
“I’m proud of my body and you should be proud of yours too,” she wrote in an Instagram post on Tuesday (Feb. 7). Gaga, 30 — who has spent years fighting against bullying and encouraging her Little Monsters to love themselves just the way they are through her Born This Way Foundation — said she caught wind of the fact that her body has become a topic of conversation and sought to encourage her fans to tune out the noise.
Little Monsters weren’t having it either, with a number backing up the singer on Twitter.
Either way, Gaga is getting the last laugh, as her U.K. and U.S. sales have exploded since Sunday’s gig, which FOX reported pulled in an astounding 117.5 million viewers, making it the second-most-viewed halftime show in Super Bowl history, behind Katy Perry’s set at Super XLIX, which drew 120.7 million viewers.
One of Uganda’s promising female singers Irene Ntale announced to the world that she was leaving Swangz Avenue. This came days after it was rumored that her manager had stopped managing her and started own music career.
Sembera singer took to her Facebook page to tell her fans the latest development;
My dearest Fans and friends, they say time flies, and today seems like one of those days when one takes it in stride to announce that after a lot of contemplation, I am officially departing from Swangz Avenue!
I have made my intentions known to my record label and we have both come to an understanding that this is the best move forward.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Swangz Avenue for the knowledge and experience I have gained there. I am truly grateful for the time I have spent with the team along with the musical and professional relationships I have built. I believe both Swangz Avenue and I have enjoyed a remarkable partnership
As always I continue to work hard at my music, to give you my dearests the best I can offer and will also continue to consolidate my presence in the Industry, within Uganda and beyond. New great Music is already on the way only for you!
Moving forward my bookings can be made through this contact
Name is Sandra Ntale Byenkya
Love you all!!!! -Irene Ntale
Through the comments many fans were skeptical on whether Irene Ntale will now make it on her own as they thought Swangz had done a lot to improve her as a brand and her music too.
In related news, Swangz Avenue also took to it facebook page to clear the air, insisting that there was no problem at all. Irene simply chose to leave and her descision was respected.
In their post:
Irene Ntale Departs Swangz
Swangz avenue and Irene Ntale have parted company by mutual consent. We would like to bring to record our thanks to Irene Ntale for the hard work, integrity and honesty she put forward during our four years of work.
All at Swangz thank Irene for her immense contribution since we signed her in March of 2013.
Her numerous awards and numerous chat topping hits in just 4 years make Irene the most successful female artist in our 9 year history. Irene asked to leave the label and we believe it is in the best interests of both parties.
Swangz wishes to make clear Irene leaves us on good terms and will always remain a much-loved, respected and significant figure at Swangz. Her legacy at Swangz and the country at large has long been guaranteed and she will always be warmly received.
We wish Irene all the best in her endeavors.
Swangz Avenue Management.
Last year, Singer Cindy Sanyu started making trips all over East Africa. She claimed, she was on her music tour trying to sell her music and move her career.
In the process, news broke out that she had hooked up a new man and was ready to move on. She denied the rumours and went silent.
Over the weekend she leaked a picture on her social media.
In the picture, clearly, it shows how she has piled on weight and when her fans provoked her to explain the source of the weight gain, Cindy responded with answers that clearly insinuated that she is expecting.
On her twitter page, she puts it “Moving on and expecting new life” Cindy wrote.
From her look now, you wouldn’t call her skinny or small. She has flesh on her, which never used to be the case. Her fans now think Cindy could have served the leg to some ruthless guy who never hesitated to plant a live seed in her.
In brief telephone interview with Cindy, she assures us to mind our business and made it clear to us that she an adult and is free to enjoy sex.
However, the singer hasn’t stopped making tours and performances across the country, as the speculations continue to make rounds.
Latest information we have is that AliKiba and this girl named Sharon Fabrinsnky are an item…and there’s proof to that.
Recently, a cozy photo of the two emerged online, sending tongues wagging on whether the two could actually be banging.
In the photo, the ‘Aje’ hit maker was seen shirtless in what seemed like a Hotel, while Sharon on the other hand, was clad in a simple dress.
By mere fact that Alikiba was shirtless, various snoops think he’s already enjoying the central fruits of Sharon who is a fast raising actress based in Kenya.
The insanely hot, dimpled and light skinned Sharon seems to be high in the clouds, as she now frequently litters her social media handles with photos and videos of Ali Kiba.
