Winnings from

yardies abroad

Jamaicans had more than their fair share of achievements to be proud of when swimmer Yona Knight-Wisdom made history in Rio, winning silver at the Fina World Diving Cup. Then Jamaican chef AndrÈ Fowles heated things up, winning the Caribbean Cruise line challenge on popular American TV Show, Chopped. Talk about likkle but tallawah!

Free Kesha

Well, Kesha versus Dr Luke and Sony is still under way and she is being flooded with support from fellow artistes. They took to social media, making #freekesha a worldwide trend and the likes of Taylor Swift donating US$250 towards her legal fees. If the allegations of rape and abuse are true, I must commend the music fraternity for supporting her.

You better work

Audiences finally got a visual to Rihanna's new single, Work, last week, receiving not just one, but two videos executed by different directors. Naturally, locals gravitated to the dancehall video directed by X. Many expressed delight in the Caribbean diva's video and her gyrating,1 sultry dance moves, but a few were of the view that it was a little too raunchy for their liking.

#BabyAlert! Songbird Tami Chynn has

another bundle of joy on the way. The happy daddy posted a picture on Instagram showcasing his wife's small bump with her doting husband by her side. CONGRATULATIONS Tami! I hope you enjoy this second experience blow by blow!

Free Ahmed

There was quite a buzz around three-year-old Egyptian Ahmed Mansour Qorany Sharara, who was sentenced to life in prison last week.

It is alleged that the toddler has been charged with committing murder, attempted murder, and vandalism during the January 2014 protest by supporters of ousted President Mohamed Morsy - at the age of one.

It's clearly a case of mistaken identity. His father was seen weeping for his son, begging authorities to resolve the situation. The international community has come forward to show its support to help free #AhmedMansourKarni.
