Cardi B was turning all the way up in Nigeria.
Cardi B’s superstardom has taken her around the world, but we haven’t seen her have quite as much fun as she’s having in Nigeria. The “Money” rapper spent a lot of it Friday night after visiting a strip club in the African nation. Cardi has always been vocal about her past occupation in New York strip clubs, and every time we get a glimpse of her visiting a club, she shows the dancers major love.
Cardi B posted a series of clips to her Instagram Stories of her spending racks on racks in her section full of dancers. She even made it rain on the local fans who were in attendance, watching it all from the dancefloor. When she first arrived in Lagos, Nigeria, where she’s billed to perform at the Livespot X Festival, she told her fans that the country reminded her a lot of the Dominican Republic, a comparison that garnered mixed reactions on social media.
Nonetheless, Cardi showed her intentions were pure and continued to big up Nigeria when she returned back to her hotel via Livestream. “I like this country a lot. You want to know why I like this country? Because you find everything that you’re really looking for in this country,” she said.

“You know this country [has] tourism, like if you want to go to beaches and relax with your couple, with your husband with your wife. They have that. If you’re looking for culture, if you want to see how people are living, how people make a living, you have that. Over here it reminds me of the Carribean Islands with a touch of New York because everybody is busy.”

Cardi B also offered to pay for a fan’s tickets to the festival after reposting a video of a Nigerian girl in tears saying she wasn’t permitted to go. The “Bodak Yellow” star said Saturday morning that she was looking to visit the “hood” and wanted to be amongst the people. “I want to see like the real Nigeria. I don’t want to eat hotel food. I want to eat like the real Nigerian food. All that fish, all that jollof rice.”
You can catch a recap of Cardi B’s Nigerian experience so far below.

Usain Bolt Drops New Soca Single “Energy To Burn” Remix With Ultimate Rejects
Usain Bolt dropped off a new soca single “Energy To Burn” remix with Trinidad’s own Ultimate Rejects.
Usain Bolt has always branded himself as not just a speedster but someone who can accomplish anything he puts his mind to. He has dabbled in football, having trained with Borussia Dortmund and even played for the Soccer Air World XI charity team. While he has hung up his football cleats, he has taken on another one of the things he is passionate about. In recent years we see Bolt trying his hand at music, first going into the production of dancehall music, and with the soca season right around the corner, he is releasing a brand high energy, waist rotating track.
The sprint king has teamed up with the “Full Extreme” champs Ultimate Rejects for a remix to a track titled, “ENERGY TO BURN.” Bolt shared a compilation video of himself and the Rejects working it out in the booth. He captioned the video, “From JAMAICA to TRINIDAD … Are you ready ?!! @ultimate_rejects x Usain Bolt (UR x UB) presents ‘ENERGY TO BURN (Remix) !! …. 24hrs.”
Usain Bolt has been heavily involved in the music production, more so in 2019, when his he and the A-team released the Olympe Rose Riddim. The project featured the likes of Christopher Martin, Dexta Daps, Ding Dong, Munga Honorable, Bibi Gardner, and Bolt with the intro. The main idea behind the project was to promote his Mumm Olympe Rose Champagne.
While he agreed that the music business did not prove as have easy has he thought, he soon followed up with another project, this time involving his idol Vybz Kartel. The Immortal riddim saw Kartel dropping one of his hottest tracks for 2019, titled, “Adiadking.” The track saw Kartel drawing on a lot of Usain Bolt references as he assumed the King of Dancehall throne. The project also featured tracks from Ding Dong, Demarco, Christopher Martin, Masicka, and Munga Honorable.
While dancehall music is Usain Bolt’s first love, he still enjoys a good time when it comes to soca carnivals and road marches. He and girlfriend Kasi J. Bennett have always brought a little bit of PDA and some heavy gyrating to the fellow revelers. With this in mind, it’s not surprising that Bolt decided to team up with one of Trinidad’s most energetic groups to mark his introduction into the fast-rising, soca market that so many other Jamaican artistes are trying to break into.
Christina Milian Welcomes Baby Boy Isaiah For Matt Pokora
Christina Milian welcomes her second child and first with Matt Pokora.
The “Dip It Low” singer introduced her baby boy, Isaiah to the world earlier this week. After months of blessing the ‘gram with radiant pregnancy photos, the singer/ actress gave birth to a healthy baby boy on Jan. 20. This is Christina Milian’s first child with boyfriend, Matt Pokora, a 33-year-old French international singer. The 38-year-old singer also has a 9-year-old daughter, Violet Madison, from her previous relationship with producer The-Dream.
Christina Milian took to Instagram on Thursday to celebrate the birth of her son, sharing a precious photo of him holding her hand. She captioned the photo,” And so we begin,” a possible reference to her new chapter of motherhood. “Simply perfect” is how the singer chose to describe her baby boy, sharing with him, “The world is yours Son.”
Dad, Pokora, also shared a photo of his new baby boy holding onto his finger, and added a caption in French that translates to, “Once upon a time there was Isaiah, born on 20/01/2020 … you write the rest … welcome my son.” Then in English, he wrote to his girlfriend, “@christinamilian you’re my hero.”
The couple who began dating back in 2017, has shared every precious moment of their pregnancy with fans. Christina Milian and Matt announced that they were expecting back in July last year. Then in August, Christina and Matt shared that they were expecting a baby boy at their gender reveal party. Joined by daughter Violet, the trio set-off a miniature cannon releasing blue smoke into the air, revealing their little bundle of joy’s gender.
Earlier this month, Milian posted glowing photos of her in a bedazzled cropped-top, and matching paints at her star-studded baby shower.
Congratulations again to the young couple.
Justin Bieber Issued PSA On His Love For Wife Hailey, Chance the Rapper Cosign
Justin Bieber is showing love to his wife, Hailey Bieber on Instagram, and Chance The Rapper is here for it.
It’s been over a year now since Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin has gotten hitched. Though he and his wife have faced a lot of scrutiny for getting married so quickly and so young, they’ve prevailed in spite of the negative judgment. The pop star took to social media today to share an appreciation post to his Mrs. The image he posted had the words “I love my wife.”
While many thought it was sweet, a lot of people questioned what Justin had to prove. However, he was quick to shut down the doubts with his caption. Justin wrote, “I don’t post this to prove anything, or to try and make people believe I love my wife, I simply think it’s an honoring thing to do, publicly acknowledging your significant other!” he said. “Its like we’re all okay with acknowledging an achievement or award, but think there has to be something shady about saying something publicly about the one you love.”
One celebrity who was definitely in support of Justin showing love to his wife on Instagram was Chance The Rapper, who has been married to his wife Kirsten Corley for almost a year now. “I love this song,” Chance commented. Also, singer Avril Lavigne took to the comments to add a series of hearts to express her fondness for Justin’s proud love.
It was recently revealed that Justin has been battling lyme disease and even suffered from chronic mono. The singer, however, was never short of support as he has had his wife by his side throughout his struggles. It’s so wonderful to see this young couple still so focused and committed to loving each other proudly and purely.
Clarks Originals Invites Reggae Songstress Lila Ike To Paris Fashion Week
It would appear iconic British footwear brand Clarks Originals is smitten with Lila Ike.
The 25-year-old Reggae songstress was recently invited to Paris Fashion Week by Clarks, a stint which the Manchester native is very proud of. The artiste is yet to officially confirm whether or not she has a promotional deal with the brand. “Big respect to @clarksoriginals. Thanks for inviting me to Paris had mad fun and met some kool people,” she wrote in an Instagram post. “Big up @imddb and 2therealkano (sully from top boy),” she wrote on a recent Instagram post.
Last December the UK-based shoe manufacturer and retailer, singled out Lila for highlight, after she sported a lavender-colored Wallabees for a performance in France, during her Europe sound system tour. Four photos of Lila were posted on Clarks Originals IG page, which was captioned: “Lila in Lavender performing live in Paris #WallabeeWednesday.”
A few months earlier in July, they had also re-posted Jahvillani’s song ‘Clarks Pon Foot,’ dubbing it a summer anthem for Clarks and Jamaica.
Clarks has been an all-time favorite of Jamaican Reggae and Dancehall artistes and was glorified and immortalized in their songs dating to as far back as the 1970s.
One Love Books founder, Al Fingers, had even assembled a compilation of tracks dubbed Clarks in Jamaica, in celebration of Jamaican artistes’ love affair with the brand. The compilation had featured 21 songs from entertainers such as Supercat, Little John, Dillinger, Trinity, and Ranking Joe and was followed up by a book of the same title in 2012.
The popularity of Clarks in Jamaica has even attracted the attention of fashion magazines such as Vogue, which published an article in 2015 titled “How Jamaica fell for the Desert Boot: The Story of Reggae’s Love Affair with Clarks.”
The author of the Vogue article had noted that when Clarks introduced the Wallabee in 1967 and the Desert Trek which later came to be known as ‘Bankrobbers’ in Jamaica in 1971, “they practically flew off the shelves, straight onto the album covers of Reggae’s most influential singers and DJs, Rastas a and razor-trimmed lyrical gangsters alike.”
Vogue also noted that in the 1980s, the trend shifted from album cover accessories to song lyrics and even titles such as Little John’s Clarks Booty, and marked some of the genres all-time classics like Super Cats’ Trash and Ready” and Eek-a-Mouse’s ‘Wa do dem?’
Clarks made a huge resurgence amongst young people in Jamaica, following the release of Vybz Kartel’s Clarks song, which also featured Popcaan and Gaza Slim and which was featured on his Pon di Gaza album. The song hailed the virtues of Clarks for its versatility, durability, health benefits for the feet, and ability to withstand any types of weather and terrain.
Joe Budden Says No More Slaughterhouse Music Until Eminem’s Shady Records Release Them
Joe Budden says he is not putting anything else out with Slaughterhouse until Eminem’s label is out of the picture.
During a recent interview on Math Hoffa, Joe Budden was asked about the possibility of him and his other Slaughterhouse brothers reuniting for a project. Slaughterhouse is a hip-hop group that consists of Joe, Joell Ortiz, Kxng Crooked, and Royce da 5’9″. All the other three artists appeared on Eminem’s latest album Music To Be Murdered By. While Joe says he is still cool with them, he doesn’t see another project happening until the artists are no longer under Shady Records.
“Those are my brothers, and I love them. Royce just did the podcast, so I spoke to him. I haven’t spoken to Joell but I just liked a picture a few days ago and he liked one back so I know me and him are fly – we alright … and the same with Crook man, those are my guys forever. We just not making music because Joe is not making music,” Joe Budden said in the interview. The podcaster continued speaking in the third person.
“In Joe’s mind, there’s a world where we can co-exist. But not in that situation. In Joe’s mind, I’m not a worker. I’m not going to work for something that didn’t exist before I got her,” he said. “And that’s how I feel about wordsmiths. If we can’t put this together, y’all can’t monetize until we do. And that’s how I act. I’m not putting nothing out with Slaughterhouse until Slaughterhouse is away from Shady and we own our own sh*t.”
Joe clarified that his statements have nothing to do with Eminem. When asked, “What about Em?” Joe’s response was, “It has nothing to do with me. Don’t ask me about Em – it has zero to do with what I just said. He is not a factor in what I am saying. What I am saying is solely related to my brothers,” Joe added.
Based on Joe’s comments, it’s hard to tell: will we ever get another record from Slaughterhouse?
Tekashi 6ix9ine’s GF Jade Leaked New Jail Photo, Blast Judge’s Ruling
Tekashi 6ix9ine’s girlfriend Jade released a never before seen photo of him while taking shots at the judge.
On Tuesday, the Brooklyn rapper gets another crushing defeat in court when a judge denied his request to serve the remainder of his prison sentence at home. The presiding judge didn’t feel that was necessary despite court documents revealing that his life might be in grave danger in prison. Apparently, Tekashi 6ix9ine babe Jade was not too happy about the ruling, as evident in a blistering message she just posted on Instagram. The photo she posted of herself and the rapper also clearly shows that it was from a jail visit.
In her post, Jade also called out a familiar target, 69’s baby mama Sara Molina, who has since clapped back on IG. “They kidnapped you, they had sex with the mother of your child, they get caught on the phone trying to kill you & their stealing millions of dollars from you,” she wrote. The mother of one later added that 6ix9ine had no choice but to snitch because he would’ve been sent to prison for 47 years and possibly be killed in the slammer.
At the moment, Tekashi 6ix9ine’s biggest fear is remaining incarcerated for the majority of this year and be possibly killed in prison. That argument formed the basis of his recent attempts to go home on house arrest. During his sentencing hearing in December, the judge noted that he needs to serve some time behind bars as he handed down a 24-month sentence. Luckily for 69, he had already been in jail for over a year, which meant he had already served half of his sentence.
Now that he has exhausted his legal options, it’s hard to see any other way out for Tekashi than to serve out the rest of his sentence in prison. His lawyers previously hinted that he could be out as early as July this year. But look for him to be out by November.
