Concert goers mugged at the Global Citizen Festival

The Global citizen festival took place on Sunday by 10 am and it was graced by international acts like;Beyonce and Jay Z ,Ed Sheeran, Pharrel Williams, Usher, Nigerian super stars D’Banj, WizKid and Tiwa Savage and South African rappers Casper Nyovest and Sho Madjozi with Trevor Noah as the host.

Though it was a wonderful concert ,the fans had it rough afterwards. According to Quartz Africa,some of them were mugged and Uber inflated their cab fare;In gridlocked traffic, concert-goers made their way to the gas station just a block away where they would meet their Ubers and other rides. Criminals spotted an opportunity and moved quickly among the crowds, grabbing cellphones and purses. People ran and screamed, creating more chaos. Others stayed put at the stadium gate, where it was safer but had no transportation.

This is really sad and disappointing. See their tweets below;

Tiwa Savage - She looked nice though

Avril Lavigne release new single as discuss her struggles with Lyme Disease

Rock princess,Avril Lavigne released her new new single 'Head above water' as she shared an open letter to fans on website via twitter discussing her struggles with Lyme's disease -is an infectious disease caused by the bacteria Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato which is transmitted to humans by a bite from an infected black-legged or deer tick. She wrote;
Hi guys,

I’m so excited to finally be able to announce the first single off my new album along with its release date. Five years have gone by since I released my last album. I spent the last few years at home sick fighting Lyme Disease. Those were the worst years of my life as I went through both physical and emotional battles. I was able to turn that fight into music I’m really proud of. I wrote songs in my bed and on the couch and recorded there mostly as well. Words and lyrics that were so true to my experience came pouring out of me effortlessly. Truly... by keeping my spirits up, having goals to reach and a purpose to live for, my music helped to heal me and keep me alive.

Thank you for waiting so patiently as I fought through and still continue to fight, the battle of my lifetime. The first song I am choosing to release is called “Head Above Water.” It is also the first song I wrote from my bed during one of the scariest moments of my life. I had accepted death and could feel my body shutting down. I felt like I was drowning. Like I was going under water and I just needed to come up for air. Like I was in a river being pulled in a current. Unable to breathe. Praying to God for Him to help me just keep my head above the water. To help me see through the stormy weather. I grew closer to Him. My mother held me. In her arms, I wrote the first song that I am releasing to tell my story. I later met a beautiful soul, Travis Clark, and we sat down at the piano and sculpted the rest of the song. Then I took it to the genius, Stephan Moccio and love what he did to the music.

I love you Avril,i'm so happy you are doing well and are back in music. We have missed you.
