Michael Jackson’s Mum Turns 90, Reflects On His Death

Her’s and her son’s (Michael Jackson) life are inextricably tied. And it seems they both traded fame and longevity. While she got the longevity her son never had, she didn’t become a singer she had always craved while growing up, though her son had it in surplus. Michael became not just a singer but the famous King of Pop. While, on the contrary, Michael, on his part would have loved to live long, but couldn’t because his life was cut short at his prime, his mother, Katherine, has been gifted with longevity. She -the mother of the famous Jackson Five and Janet (all artistes) – turned 90 on Monday, 4 May, 2020. And that is worth celebrating. This is the intriguing story of Katherine Jackson, the woman who became more famous at her son’s (Michael) death than she had been. According to...

Dear @oprah, I felt compelled to write you this open letter after observing the disparity in the way that you seem to treat people, who were accused of the same allegations. _ You did an interview on the CBS Morning Show and were asked about Harvey Weinstein by Norah O’Donnell, and you said as it pertained to him that you “always try to look at the Rainbow in the clouds, whatever is the “silver lining”. _ You also said “if we make this all about Harvey Weinstein then we have lost the moment”. When you either are, or were going to be a part of documentary on Michael Jackson, and Russell Simmons, how is that not making it all about them? _ Interestingly, Brother M.J. was acquitted, and deceased, so how is he not off limits? _ Russell and Harvey are accused of the same thing so i...

According to Variety, the song was not a part of the kickoff show in Manchester on Sunday (March 10). Drake previously performed the record during 2018's Aubrey and the Three Migos tour.

In the explosive documentary which was aired by HBO, Wade Robson and James Safechuck accuse the King of Pop of sexually abusing them as children in extremely graphic detail.

Resurrection Day At Christmas Season, By Ifedayo Babalola

It is time therefore we gave this government kudos for trying an out-of-the-box solution.

The uproar about the inclusion of dead people’s names on a recent list of federal government appointments is highly regrettable. Honestly!
