Who is Fela Kuti?
Fela Anikulapo Kuti (15 October 1938 – 2 August 1997), also professionally known as Fela Kuti, or simply Fela, was a Nigerian multi-instrumentalist, musician, composer, pioneer of the Afrobeat music genre and human rights activist. At the height of his popularity, he was referred to as one of Africa’s most “challenging and charismatic music performers”.
Who is Burna Boy?
Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu (born 2 July 1991), known professionally as Burna Boy, is a Nigerian singer and songwriter. He rose to prominence in 2012 after releasing “Like to Party”, the lead single from his debut studio album L.I.F.E (2013). In 2017, Burna Boy signed with Bad Habit/Atlantic Records in the United States and Warner Music Group internationally. His third studio album Outside (2018) marked his major-label debut. In 2019, he won Best International Act at the 2019 BET Awards, and was announced as Apple Music’s Up Next artist. His fourth studio album African Giant was released in July 2019; it won Album of the Year at the 2019 All Africa Music Awards, and was nominated for Best World Music Album at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards.
Offer accepted. The British heavyweight boxing duo of Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury will be sparring partners in the run-up to the latter’s rematch with American WBC challenger, Deontay Wilder for their bout scheduled for February next year in Las Vegas.
This was after Joshua, who on December 7 reclaimed his previously lost titles to Mexican-American fighter, Andy Ruiz Jr. extended an offer to be Fury’s sparring partner. Joshua made the offer as he said the 31-year-old would be more likely to agree to fight him at a later date.
“I think, honestly, he might beat Wilder next time,” Joshua told Sky Sports News. “I think Fury would fight me quicker than Wilder would. So, if that’s the case, I want him to win. Imagine that fight on British soil? If Tyson needs me, I’ll go out and spar with him to get him ready for Wilder,” Joshua added.
After recently splitting with trainer Ben Davison and subsequently teaming up with Javan ‘Sugar’ Hill earlier this month, Fury has confirmed he will be taking up the offer having fought to a draw in his previous bout with Wilder, which saw the American retain his title.
“I would love to have you in camp, work out for this fight, and give Deontay Wilder a proper beating,” Fury posted on his Instagram on Tuesday. “I hope you mean it, as I’d love to have you in training camp with me. When I do beat Wilder I will fight you AJ, no problem.”
For the first title defence of Joshua’s second stint as world champion, he is likely to face unbeaten Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk, the WBO’s mandatory challenger, or Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev, the mandatory challenger for the IBF.
Johannesburg – South Africa’s biggest city and commercial epicentre. Also known as Jozi, Joburg, or Egoli (City of Gold in Zulu), it began as a gold-mining settlement in the 19thcentury.
There is more to this cosmopolitan city than shopping. If you are visiting Johannesburg, or on a staycation in the city, here is a list of family-friendly things to do in Johannesburg . However even if you don’t have kids with you, you will still enjoy them. I have written about several of these places before – individually – but as lists are more concise and easier to access, I have compiled them below.
City Sightseeing Johannesburg Bus
This is a great way to see Johannesburg if you are visiting the city for the first time. However, even if you have stayed here all your life, you can see the city from a different perspective and learn things about the city you never knew. Many of the attractions listed here are stops on the tour. The bus also has a Soweto extension, which I would highly recommend.
This is South Africa’s only theme park. Located on an old gold mine, it has over 30 rides catering for different age groups. You can also watch a 4D show, visit an underground mine, witness a gold pouring demonstration and much more.
Sci-Bono is an interactive science centre where scientific concepts are explained with colourful and interactive gadgets, devices and experiments. Kids are encouraged to experiment to their heart’s content. Special exhibitions are often hosted at the museum.

It’s a normal thing for a couple to visit each other and have sleepovers. It is at this time you get to know who someone really is. I mean, how are you going to know if your boyfriend is a thief? But it’s not everyone who does this. However, if you are a lady, you need to be well behaved if you want your man to invite you for a sleepover again and again.
Here’s how to never get invited for a sleepover:
1. Hog the remote from the moment you arrive.
If you love watching the TV, and you can’t keep your hands off the remote, try to avoid doing that on that day. You did not go there to continue watching your favorite soap opera. Remotes aside, get to know each other.
2. Go with the biggest suitcase you can find.
If you are going for a sleepover, carry something light. It’s only for a day girl. If you carry a suitcase, you will scare the heebie-jeebies out of him; he will think you want to move in. A little too fast, don’t you think?
3. Leave the house messy; like really messy.
Do I need to tell you this? Leave the house cleaner than you found it. Everyone loves staying in a clean place.
4. Hogging the bed and duvet like a cat taking an afternoon nap.
Do not hog the duvet and leave your better half feeling like a stranger in his own bed.
5. ‘Accidentally’ forget some of your stuff in his house.
Ladies, I know you want to mark your territory and all, but don’t do it until you are sure. You might give him the impression that you want to move in with him as quickly as possible.
6. Spy through his stuff like an FBI agent who wants a promotion.
Respect each other’s privacy. It’s annoying if your partner goes through your things, so why would you?
7. Overeat all the food in the fridge.
Don’t overeat. Eat reasonably. It’s embarrassing if you begin to have stomach problems at his place. You don’t want him to hear you taking a long poopie when your stomach begins to give you problems.
Cape Town – Two people were killed in Goodwood – the driver of a metered taxi and a suspected hijacker – and seven people seriously injured after Flying Squad members pursued three hijacking suspects.
A high-speed chase ensued after police spotted a Toyota Etios that was allegedly hijacked in Bellville speeding on the N1 around 5pm on Thursday, Western Cape police spokesperson Sergeant Noloyiso Rwexana said.
After racing over three red traffic lights, the Toyota ended up crashing into three other vehicles. The police implored the alleged hijackers to exit the vehicle, but one of the suspects reportedly stormed at an officer with a knife and was shot dead.
The 30-year-old’s two accomplices – aged 28 and 41 – were arrested and are expected to appear in the Goodwood Magistrate’s Court soon.
The 30-year-old taxi driver’s body was found on the back seat of his vehicle and a firearm allegedly used to kill him was seized.
A 2-year-old child was among the seven people that had to be taken to medical facilities for treatment, Rwexana said.
“Circumstances surrounding the incident that occurred this afternoon (Thursday) at 5pm on the corner of Hugo and Milton roads, Goodwood, are under investigation,” Rwexana said.
“According to information, a vehicle that was allegedly hijacked, a Toyota Etios, was spotted by the police and the driver fled. A high-speed chase ensued and the vehicle collided with three vehicles.
“Two men in their thirties were shot and fatally wounded.”
