9 Times AKA and Girlfriend Bonang Matheba Gave Us Ultimate Relationship Goals!

It’s the relationship that’s got most Africans wagging their tongues at and if only because their social media posts give most of us the ultimate relationship goals!

Rapper AKA makes the scene now and again for being one of Africa’s most iconic rappers but also for… what’s the best way to put it… yes. For being a little too baring on social media.

This South African rapper is pretty much an open book, although some may argue that he needs to reel it in a little after announcing his break up to girlfriend Bonang Matheba via twitter…

AKA.original

Only to later on, take that back and tweet that they are in fact still together.

AKA-and-Bonang-are-back-together1

AKA-and-bonang-back-together-again2

From the looks of it, some media in South Africa think that the series of tweets were in fact nothing more of a publicity stunt and regardless of what you may think of this ‘World is Yours’ rapper, he and his beautiful and famous radio and TV show host girlfriend Bonang have shared the most adorable moments together throughout their relationship.

Here are just 9 of those moments.

 aka and bonag 5 aka and bonag 7 aka and bonag 4 aka and bonang 2 aka and bonang 6aka and bonag 8 aka and bonang 3   AKA and Bonang Aka and Bonang 9

AKA’s ‘World is Yours’ has been receiveing an incredible amount of airplay across the continent and is currently enjoying a week’s long stay on HBR’s Power Hour Countdown.

That jam which had its video released a couple of weeks ago features the power couple enjoying time away together in a luxurious location.

Xzibit Calls Out STL Over Alleged Rap Battle

US rapper Xzibit from hit single ‘Get your walk on’ and popular MTV show ‘Pimp My Ride’ has issued a tweet, calling out Kenyan rapper STL over her statements regarding a rap battle.

STL was a star guest on Friday night TV Show 10/10 on Citizen Tv where she talked about having battled Xzibit when she was 13, a story that this American rapper denied via a tweet that read;

While questions like ‘did she lie then?’ or ‘was she just misquoted?’ remain up in the air, this isn’t the first scandal (so to speak) to befall a Kenyan rapper.

Last year the heat was on Octopizzo who after having released a single which was labeled ‘featuring August Alsina’, had the American trap soul star tweet that it was in fact NOT featuring him.

Octo responded to that situation in the exclusive Homeboyz Radio interview posted below and as far as we know, STL has yet to respond to Xzibit’s comments.

The question is however, is a rap battle between STL and Xzibit THAT hard to imagine?

The comments online seem to suggest so ….

https://twitter.com/StrongerAgain/status/820167214540222466

…but if you think about it, far from having plenty of hit singles under her belt, she’s also one of Norway’s most popular artists (as quoted on Wikipedia) and has won multiple awards, with her hits played across the continent (which is no mean feat). Xzibit on the other hand, was a phenomenal artist but has quite honestly been off our playlists for quite sometime (save for the occasional Throwback Thursday).

Maybe they SHOULD battle so we can decide how right we are to think that STL couldn’t possibly take him on.

 

 

Bryson Tiller and Drake Could Link Up on ‘More Life’

In October 2015, when he was a guest on the Red Light Special R&B Podcast, Bryson Tiller revealed to host Rob Markman that Drake and his producer Noah “40” Shebib wanted to sign him to OVO. The pair even gifted Tiller with a pair of OVO Jordan sneakers. Ultimately, Tiller ended up signing a record deal with RCA, but the two have remained closed, with the Louisville native going as far as to label Drake his “big brother.”

To date, Bryson Tiller and Drake have yet to release a collaborative effort but they could finally be bringing their collaboration to Life. The Louisville Slugger and October’s Very Own may be working on music for Drake’s now-delayed project More Life.

Tiller took to Twitter on Tuesday night to reveal the big news. “started some vibes with Drake today. more life,” he wrote.

Last weekend, during the latest episode of OVO Sound Radio, Drake’s manager, Oliver El-Khatib, revealed that More Life, Drake’s not-an-album-playlist that was teased for a December release, won’t be arriving until the top of 2017.

Like Drake, Tiller is almost done with his new album, which will serve as a follow-up to his Platinum-certified debut T R A P S O U L.

This Is The New Drake Tattoo That Has Got Twitter Flipping

Drake just got himself some major ink: flaming skull with the words ‘Unruly’ under it and twitter is not having it. The rapper’s tattoo artist shared the picture of the tattoo captioning, “Hot skulllll for the Boy 🔥💀 @champagnepapi 💀🔥.” The design itself makes it seem as if Drake is channeling his inner Sons of Anarchy and…it’s permanent!

It’s no secret Drake is a fan of tattoos from a back tribute to Aaliyah to a BBK tattoo and even the famous matching shark tattoo with Rihanna. The tweetverse however is just raging mad about it and these are some of the tweets people have tweeted.

“Drake: something naughty yet understated

tattoo artist: say no more”

“I know things are bad right now, but also drake (age 30) got a new tattoo and. well. hell yeah!”

“Damn why Drake got a tattoo of a angry brussel sprout”

“Drake got that tattoo at a child’s birthday party and the artist was warm water and a rag you shan’t convince me otherwise.”

“I’m screaming at that tattoo, Drake got a picture of Sweet Tooth from Twisted Metal with UNRULY underneath it in Olde English 😭😭”

“drake got a permanent 25 cent tattoo I’m crying”

And those are the PG 13 ones!

Twitter Back At It With Kanye West’s Presidential Bid #Kanye2020

Donald Trump’s victory has reignited lots of things on twitter including Kanye West’s announcement for his candidacy for the 2020 presidential election at the 2015 MTV VMAs.

The buzz had died down after a while (probably because people were too busy keeping up with the campaigns) and now it’s back.

Flying Lotus, Sonny Digital, Questlove, and a horde of fans came together last night and this morning under the banner of #Kanye2020.

Kanye who often speaks his mind, spoke on his societal frustrations during an interview with BBC Radio 1 earlier this year.

“We are numb, we’re numb to 500 kids getting killed in Chicago a year, we’re numb to the fact that it was seven police shootings in the beginning of July,” he said. “I don’t have views on politics, I just have a view on humanity, on people, on the truth. If there is anything that I can do with my time and my day, to somehow make a difference while I’m alive I’m going to try to do it.”

People seem optimistic that he could make to be the next president especially because just like Trump, he has zero experience in politics.

 

The world reacts to Mr Trump’s presidential win as Americans consider emigration.

Now that it’s sank in that Mr Trump is the 45th and oldest president of the United states of America (still sounds unbelievable by the way) Canada has literally broken the internet with many Americans thinking of moving to the Northern bordering country (can’t blame them)

This caused millions of Americans to check out the Canadian immigration website which has reportedly crashed.

Canadian actor Alexander Ludwig offered his house.

Others even went as far as asking Drake to house them.

Huge numbers of internet surfers worldwide also began googling the phrase “end of the world” when the news broke.  

Its not just a good number of americans frightened of an uncertain future with Trump as president but also investors as markets around the world reportedly fell after it seeming that Trump would win the elections (which he has) with the Mexican Peso slamming an all time low against the US dollar.

Meanwhile, theres a trending hashtag on twitter: #ripusa

That said President Trump has promised to work with everyone who wants to work with him to make America great and congratulated Hillary Clinton for a good run on her campaigns.

 

 

Twitter Highlights – A New Feature That Highlights Tweets You Want To See

As WhatsApp is trying to launch Whatsapp Video Call feature, Twitter is finally helping its users bypass all of the unwanted tweets and focus on the things they actually want to see.

The new feature makes it easier to access the best tweets from the people you follow.

Here’s how it works:

When you receive a Highlights notification, a single tap takes you directly to the Twitter app, which is where you’ll find your Highlights displayed in a slideshow-style interface. You can work your way through them by swiping from right to left. When you hit the final Highlight in the list, the next swipe takes you directly to your regular timeline.

“We look at things like accounts and conversations that are popular among people who follow, Tweets from people you’re closely tied to, topics, and events that are trending in your area or within your network, and people that are popular or trending among the people you follow,” Twitter announced in a brief statement on its blog during the feature’s initial launch in 2015.

This is an easier way for you to check out stuff on your timeline and a way to help you find some of the more interesting content on the service.

Twitter Highlights was first made available last year to Android users only, but has just recently allowed iOS user access.

Nicki Tricks Fans With A Fake Album Release Announcement

It’s been nearly two years since Nicki Minaj released her hit album The Pinkprint which explains why fans were very disappointed when she did not drop the “pick my fruit out” album as she’d said she would.

Nicki took to twitter to make a big announcement which half seemed like a joke announcing that she’d be releasing her new album called “Pick my fruit out” at midnight on Saturday.

She even went ahead to put the full tracklist in which all songs were named after fruits.

 

tweet-2 

She probably would have tipped off that she was joking as the news got fans into a frenzy as they waited for the album to drop at midnight.

“Pick my fruit out” seemed like a far-fetched concept for a rap album, though if anyone can get away with making a song called “N*gga Toss My Fruit Salad,” it’s Nicki.

When it got to midnight, Nicki put up this post:

Yap and that is how we got duped.

KOT Go Crazy Over The #UhuruChallenge. Check Out The Hillarious Pics

All attention on twitter has been shifted to President Uhuru Kenyatta after KOT decided to drop #UhuruChallenge.

It all began with a photo uploaded by Propesa –  a group of comedians from Nakuru who are regularly upload short skits on Facebook.

They posted some photos on their Facebook page imitating the posture of the President while on a recent visit to Kiambu County where he had gone to launch a lighting project.

KOT has also joined in with funny memes imitating the president and the cabinet secretary Charles Keter’s facial expressions.

Want to join in the madness?  All you have to do is get a silk, flowered shirt, bend your head a little as if entering a house and pop your eyes.  Oh! You could also have someone behind you with their eyes popped out like Energy CS Charles Keter’s are in the photo.

Here are some of the hilarious  photos from the challenge
