Update: R.Kelly’s Lead Lawyers Request to be Taken off Case Ahead of federal trial

Donnie McClurkin Says he’ll Likely be Alone forever Because of his Sexuality

Gospel singer, Donnie McClurkin, is opening up yet again about his sexuality. Speaking in a recent episode of TV One’s Uncensored, he said he has had relationships with men and women and fears he may end up alone for the rest of his life.

IPOB Reacts After Facebook Blocked its Leader, Nnamdi Kanu’s Page

Nigeria’s Hot Temperature May Suppress Spread Of Coronavirus — Virologist

A Consultant Virologist, Dr Adeola Fowotade, has said that hot tropical climate as obtainable in Nigeria could help suppress the spread of coronavirus COVID-19. Fowotade of the University College Hospital, Ibadan, said this while speaking to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ibadan. According to her, some experts think the COVID-19 may behave like the influenza virus, which is a seasonal disease common in colder climate, making Nigeria too hot for coronavirus to spread. “That is an extrapolation from what happened with influenza virus also known as the flu, which is most prevalent in colder climate during winter. “We believe that if COVID-19 is a Respiratory Tract Infection, probably it will follow the same pattern. “There is a very high chance there will be some remission a...
