In the days after South African President Jacob Zuma was arrested for corruption, protests spread throughout the country.
Many people are angry at the way the government handled the matter. They are also frustrated with the economic conditions that have led to mass unemployment and poverty in the country. In reaction to the anti-government protests, the government has proposed legislation that would limit the right of citizens to protest.
Riots have broken out in South Africa after President Jacob Zuma was charged with corruption, and the country’s opposition party has slammed the government for not respecting human rights.
Over the last few days, protests have spread throughout South Africa over the imprisonment of President Zuma. The government has described the situation as a crisis and has suggested that they may have to declare a state of emergency in order to maintain order.
Amid the chaos of South Africa’s President Jacob Zuma’s arrest for corruption, protests have sprung up in the streets. The anti-government protesters are angry at a government that’s mismanaged the country and the economic conditions that have led to unemployment and poverty.
KwaZulu-Natal, Zuma’s power base, has a long history of political violence, including killings and truck burnings. South Africa’s high levels of inequality and poverty also mean protests can lead to looting, say, analysts. South Africa’s main opposition party, the Democratic Alliance, said that Ramaphosa “should have acknowledged the ANC’s role in this crisis, as this is essentially their internal war being waged on our streets”.
A$AP Rocky Agrees Travis Scott ‘Stole’ His Whole Style
A$AP Rocky is seemingly agreeing that fellow rapper Travis Scott, or so it seems, in a new interview teaser reel.
After his much-awaited return to music, A$AP Rocky recently just dropped his comeback single, ‘D.M.B,’ and he is well on a press run to promote his comeback.
A$AP Rocky says that Travis Scott stole his style during an upcoming interview on the Drink Champs podcast.
That question came up again in a teaser for an upcoming episode of rap’s in-house mess factory, Drink Champs with NORE.
“Travis Scott stole his whole style from A$AP Rocky,” N.O.R.E tells the New York rapper.“Yeah,” Rocky agrees.
It isn’t the first time Rocky has discussed the similarities between himself and Travis Scott. Back in 2016, Rocky said during an interview on Hot 97’s Ebro In the Morning that people need to “let shorty rock.”
“You’re hearing it from me, let shorty rock,” he stated at the time. “And let the people decide if he a biter or if he authentic. I’m not saying everybody should be allowed to just take [from] whoever got going on. I’m not implying that. I feel like that whole situation sound petty.”
Despite their superficial physical resemblance, ASAP Rocky and Travis Scott haven’t had the warmest relationship.
In fact, you almost never see the two of them together which, come to think of it, probably contributed to them being mistaken for each other all those times.
However, despite some rumors and speculation, Rocky has insisted that there’s no beef between the two men.
However, that doesn’t mean he doesn’t agree with certain comparisons between them — namely, the one that Travis jacked ASAP Rocky’s style.

During her conversation with The Sun, the Don’t Start Now singer spilt the beans on quitting smoking after suffering a bout of laryngitis.”I had laryngitis in December and that kind of kickstarted me quitting smoking a month earlier than I was supposed to. But I did it and I have stuck to it,” the New Rules singer said.
“I have this habit tracker on my phone where every night I tick off all the good things I have done for my body and things I have done for myself,” she added.
Dua who began the tour in Miami in February and will finish the mammoth run of gigs in November this year in Perth in Australia.
“It is a really, really demanding and relentless show. When you’re in rehearsals and I’m like, ‘Yeah, lets do this dance routine here, and let’s do this and let’s do that.’
According to her ,the current tour is the most physically demanding show she has ever performed, and as well as ditching the cigarettes.
Nothing ever quite prepares you for the real thing, especially when the adrenaline hits and you’re on stage and you feel the energy from the crowd.
That definitely helps you get in the zone and you don’t really think about the toll it can take on your body because the adrenaline is so high.”
The singer expressed feeling ‘invincible’ onstage thanks to her some changes in her health and fitness practices.
“I feel like when I get up on stage there is a different kind of confidence and, you know, I feel very invincible at times when I am performing,” she said during the latest episode of her At Your Service podcast.

“I mean it’s lit for a lot of people – I’ve even planned a couple of baby showers like that myself—it’s just not right for me. Personally, I want a party.

She also confirmed to not want to hold a gender reveal party, and that she will wait until the couple are ready to share the sex of their little bundle.
