Bulgaria's Nilsat IPTV provider has added African FM to its suite of programming content.

Ugandan gospel artist Grace Nakimera has launched her latest smash single here on African FM.  Called 'Kabaka Kristo', this toe tapping song is sure to get you moving.

 

The 46-year-old pop star believes she's been seen as a symbol of "ladette culture" since the 90s, but in reality, Melanie actually sees herself as "quite quiet" and "really gentle".

She shared: "I had this tomboy image and I loved my football, people thought I was a bit mouthy, a bit loud, part of that ladette culture.

"And, you know, I'm really quite quiet, and I'm really gentle. That was hard for me for a few years. I found it really confusing."

Melanie underwent therapy for clinical depression in the early 2000s.

And the chart-topping singer also admits that the arrival of her 11-year-old daughter Scarlet proved to be a turning point in her life.

She told the BBC: "Being a mum was so liberating because for the first time in my adult life, it wasn't all about me.
"It made me not only realise I had a huge responsibility to her but I have a huge responsibility to myself. In being her teacher, I had to treat myself better."

Melanie has been having to teach Scarlet at home amid the coronavirus crisis, and she's confessed they've managed "the bare minimum" in recent months.

The singer explained: "I hate it. My little girl's pretty smart but she just can't be bothered. And you know, someone said quite early on in this whole thing: 'Think about how difficult it is, as an adult to motivate yourself at home - so imagine being a kid.' After that I thought, 'OK, that's good. As long as she's doing something, it's better than nothing.'

 

50 Cent has reached out to fellow rapper Megan Thee Stallion to apologise for sharing memes following her shooting incident.

Reports suggested the Savage rapper was barefoot when she was shot at a Hollywood Hills party earlier this month and took off in a vehicle with Tory Lanez, who was later arrested for carrying a concealed weapon.

The Hot Girl Summer hitmaker confirmed in an emotional Instagram Live video on Monday that she was shot in both feet and required surgery to get the bullets out.

In Da Club star 50, real name Curtis Jackson, later reposted a clip taken from her broadcast, showing Megan expressing her frustration over people "painting fake-a*s narratives" about the altercation, and he apologised for sharing two memes that made light of the event.

"Damn I didn’t think this s**t was real, It sounded so crazy," the rapper captioned the clip. "@theestallion I’m glad your feeling better and I hope you can accept my apology. I posted a meme that was floating around. I wouldn’t have done that if I knew you was really hurt. Sorry."

The apology comes after Megan called out Draya Michele for making light of the situation, after the former Basketball Wives LA star made a joke about what may have allegedly gone down between her and rumoured boyfriend Lanez.

Model Chrissy Teigen also apologised and made her Twitter account private after joking about Megan following the shooting.
