Last week Donald Trump, the Republican Presidential candidate, made a desperate attempt to exploit NBA star Dwyane Wade’s cousin Nykea Aldridge’s tragic death. Wade’s cousin was gunned down on the streets of Chicago while pushing her child in a baby carriage
Dwyane Wade addressed Trump’s tweet to ABC News saying, “I was conflicted [about Trump’s Tweet]. On one end your cousin’s death is used as a ploy for political gain.”
“On the other end, it’s a national story. It goes back to that for me. I want eyes on this city. I want us to be able to do more together. The only way we can do more together is if more people know what’s going on.”
“I was grateful that it started a conversation but on the other hand it left a bad taste in my mouth.”
Troubled singer Chris Brown just found out that he has been blocked from a planned appearance on 50 Cent’s Starz hit drama ‘Power’, due to his recent bad boy behavior
According to NY Post, sources says that Fiddy had promised his friend Brown a major role on his hit Starz show, but network execs put a stop to the plan.
A source close to Brown told us, “50 promised Chris a big role on ‘Power,’ playing a drug dealer. But 50 didn’t consult the network first, and execs were not happy when they found out about it.”
The source continued, “The network insisted that Chris’ casting was not going to happen, because of fears about his anger issues. There was a big blowup, and they had to tell Chris he was not going to get the role. The news was delivered to him early Monday. He was livid.”
Sean Combs, the hip-hop mogul known as Diddy, steered the creation of the Capital Prep Harlem school, scheduled to open in fall 2016, he said on Monday.
In a statement, Mr. Combs, who was born in Harlem, said creating the school was “a dream come true for me.”
The charter school was approved by the Board of Regents in 2014, but Mr. Combs’s involvement had not been previously publicized. The school will replicate the model of Capital Preparatory Magnet, a year-round school in Hartford that says it has high graduation and college acceptance rates.
The founder of the Hartford school, Steve Perry, said in an interview on Monday that it was unclear what role Mr. Combs would play in the new school. Beginning in 2011, Mr. Combs recruited Mr. Perry to bring his educational model to Harlem, provided office space and quietly rallied support in the community, Mr. Perry said.

Hey everybody, there’s a guy out there claiming that he is in possession of the actual blood of Jesus Christ from His Crucifixion almost 2000 years ago. According to Prophet Shepherd ‘Major 1’ Bushiri, you can be the proud owner of some of the precious fluid…for a price.
Atoast2wealth.com says that the founder and leader of ECG ministries Prophet Shepherd ‘Major 1’ Bushiri has launched the “blood of Jesus”. According to reports, the blood is being sold in 500ml and 750ml plastic bottles.
One congregant who confessed to be a loyal member of ECG ministries revealed that the blood heals every calamity and problems.
“We have been using anointing oil which is called “The Lion of Judah” before and we have been using anointed mantles, bracelets and DVDs but this time the power is released. Major 1 introduced “The Blood of Jesus” which is real blood of Jesus which was extracted at Calvary when the Son of God was crucified.
“As sons and daughters of Major 1 we don’t really care what people will say, we understand this revelation as a ministry (ECG family), people are on the move to drag our fathers name into disrepute but God elevated him to address our problems.
“The blood of Jesus is being sold at our worship center the smallest bottles 500ml are costs R20 000 and the 750ml bottle costs R30 000. We don’t care about the price but the results, as we are speaking the Blood of Jesus has resurrected reported five people and healed hundreds since launch.
Efforts to get a comment from ECG spokesperson were fruitless, since he is reported to be in Mauritius on holiday.
