Justin Timberlake Postpones Dec tour

Singer,Justin Timberlake announced on his instagram page that his tour this month is cancelled due to bruised vocal cords. He wrote;

“Hey guys, I’m sure you have heard that I’ve had to postpone several tour dates due to bruised vocal cords,” the post reads. “My vocal cords are healing, but they are not all the way back to normal, so my doctors want me to continue to rest my voice. They have asked me to hold off on singing until next month. I’m really sorry, I want to be back on the stage and I am doing all I can to get there quickly. Thank you for understanding — I see all of your posts and I appreciate the support and the love. I look forward to coming back stronger than I was before. More to come on the rescheduled dates.”

Feel better,JT. We love you.

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.

Sam Smith face backlash for saying 'i don't like Michael Jackson'

Controversy: Sam Smith has been caught on video saying he 'doesn't like' Michael Jackson... and  blasted by seething fans who called for a public apologyBacklash: Adam (pictured) quickly deleted the Instagram clip on Saturday amid backlashoouuu...not a wise choice Mr Smith...Singer,Sam Smith (photo left) shared a video on his instagram from a boat ride with Adam Lambert(photo right) were her blotted out 'I don't like Michael Jackson' and the late King of pop fans gave it to him. See their comments below;

Fury: Michael Jackson fans took to Twitter to vent their fury 

Though some people took offense with the statement ,some feel Sam is entitled to his opinion. See below;
Support: However, others rushed to Sam's defence, insisting the I'm Not The Only One singer is entitled to his opinion

Yes,everyone is entitled to his/her opinion,there are some singers i don't like their songs (Sam Smith is one of them) - see what i did here? "Song" not the artist "Smith" but he out-rightly said he doesn't like MJ but the song is good,like seriously?! I have a problem with it -for him to say it and share the dumb post on his social page is just unacceptable especially since he is also an artist.  Very insensitive,given that the icon is late as WTH!

The singer have since taken down the post but the damage has been done.
