She later apologized.

In a new interview with MPR News, the widow and mother of three said she believe Nigerians are still angry at her husband.

The widow who lives in Minnesota says she has been struggling financially since July when her husband died and needs to claim benefits for her 3 daughters, but she needs to prove her husband is dead to apply for benefits and to do that she needs a death certificate, which she claims the Nigerian government & First Consultants Medical Centre the hospital were Sawyer died are both refusing o give her.

Decontee Sawyer believes the reason why she hasn’t received Patrick’s death certificate or cremated remains is because Nigerian officials blame her husband for the Ebola outbreak.

Hip Hop Beef: Kylie Jenner’s Boyfriend Tyga Disses Drake & Nicki Minaj…Drake Responds

drake-tyga-atlanta-party16

Nothing like some rap beef! As long as there are no guns or weapons involved I’m here for all the back & forth shade!

Tyga who is reportedly dating under-aged Kardashian sister Kylie Jenner is firing all kinds of shots at his Young Money – Cash Money label mates Drake & Nicki Minaj!

In an interview with Vibe Magazine called “When Tyga Attacks”, the rapper who is now more known for his Kardashian connections than his music sure attacked!

He called Drake fake & said he doesn’t get along with Nicki Minaj. I would be pained too if my label mates were making fun of me and my claim to fame was dating Kim Kardashian‘s baby sister :)

MOBO Awards Pull A BET By Not Broadcasting Best African Act Category…Our Artistes Need To Start Boycotting These Events!

 

Fuse-ODG

The 2014 MOBO awards were last night and the famed awards, which was set up to celebrate black music, last night during it’s live broadcast pulled a move synonymous with the BET Awards…by not broadcasting the Best African Act category.

Afrobeats music as they like to categorize Nigerian music is HUGE right now in the UK so I can’t think of any reason why the MOBO organizers did not televise the Best African category. Afrobeats is played on UK radio & in the hottest clubs.
