Taylor Swift Has Just Released A New Video & People Are Saying It’s Racist & Promoting Colonialism In Africa. Do You Agree?

 

taylor-swift-in-22wildest-dreams22

Taylor Swift has come under fire for her latest music video “Wildest Dreams” which stars actor Scott Eastwood and was filmed at an undisclosed location in Africa.

The video tells the story of two actors in the 1950s having a doomed affair while shooting a film in Africa.

The video fulfils all Western cliches of Africa: wild animals, large expanse of land…you know the drill, but guess what for a video that was filmed in “Africa”, there are no black people in except for the black extras that appear in the background scenes for a total of 2 seconds.

Anyway critics are bashing  the “Joseph Kahn” directed video for promoting white colonialism & racism. 

Even though Taylor has remained mum about the bashing she’s getting, the video director has come out to defend his work. Read what he said after the jump

This Meme Sums Up Our Feelings About Godswill Akpabio Going Abroad For Treatment…


Excuse the grammar…but you get the message…I found this meme on Instagram today.

On Monday Senate Minority Leader, Godswill Akpabio was involved in a car accident in Abuja and on Tuesday he was flown out on a private jet to United Kingdom for medical treatment.

In May just before leaving the Governor’s office, Akpabio who is the immediate past Governor of Akwa Ibom State, commissioned a N30 billion hospital in Akwa Ibom. When opening the hospital he said the hospital which he said was equipped with “640 city scanners, digital mammography, endoscopy surgery, highly sophisticated intensive care units and medical gas plants with fully automated laboratories” was a “world-class specialist center with ultra-modern medical facilities that would attract medical tourism to state”.

Emeka Ike Is Accusing Chris Okotie Of Keeping His Estranged Wife From Him…Could Their Divorce Getting Any Messier?

emeka_ike_wife

For a few months now there has been a public back & forth between actor Emeka Ike & his wife Suzanne Ike which has played out in the press.

The couple have 4 gorgeous kids together and have been married for 15 years, but back in July she filed for divorce citing emotional & physical abuse at the hands of her actor husband.

In her court testimony she said,

It was when my husband beat me mercilessly I believed that people truly saw stars whenever they were unconscious. It was my brother who took me to the hospital where I spent two months. There was also a day I was feeding our last child with tea, my husband, out of anger took the tea and poured it on my head. Each time we fight, he calls me a witch saying whenever he intends to start a project and he informs me it eventually fails. He also said if he hadn’t married me, I would have become a prostitute. Since I left, he doesn’t allow me to speak with our first two children, asking me to come home if I really want to see them. Even when I was in with him, he leaves home for months on the pretext of different appointments. I can’t face all this anymore. I need help.

DJ Cuppy is known for being very fashionable but never really shows cleavage, abs or too much leg like most of the starlets on the scene these days.

However in the new issue of Zen Magazine we see the billionaires’ daughter like we have never before – flashing skin…just a little bit of it though…so boys you can calm down!

The producer who is currently on a tour of Africa flashes her taut abs in a cute ankara print crop top! She has also ditched her trademark super long pony tail & opted to wear her hair in a loose curly style. We are totally loving this look on her.

Rare Glimpse Inside Aliko Dangote’s Palatial Abuja Mansion?

Aliko+Dangote+Arrivals+TIME+100+Gala+ovGT5JwIVLhl

For the first time ever we have been granted a rare glimpse into what is said to be the palatial Abuja mansion, Africa’s wealthiest man – Aliko Dangote calls home!

According to Africa Cradle they were granted exclusive access and granted a tour by the man himself. They also report that the mansion which is located in Northern Abuja has been put up for sale, because “he has just completed a new piece of real estate in the United Kingdom, where he is switching to after putting ink to paper on a deal to purchase the London based  Arsenal Football Club.”

I am wondering why Mr. Dangote just doesn’t keep the Abuja mansion where he has lived for twelve years, rather than sell it for a home in England. People like Dangote always acquire property…but the online publication claims it’s his home and even claim to have pictures of inside the swagged out crib.
