Mr. Depp, Please Double That Divorce Money — THV 12th Ed

“We insist on $14 million” Amber Heard’s spokeswoman, on the divorce story which is beginning to take on a different row.

THE STORY

About two weeks ago, Amber Heard mentioned that she was donating her divorce settlement ($7 million) to Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles and the American Civil Liberties Union charity.

JOHNNY DEPP WHY ARE WE STILL ON THIS?

On Thursday, Johnny Depp revealed he had paid the first installment of the original $7m sum to the charities “in the name of Amber Heard”. Amber went to accuse him of trying to reduce his total bill, and now she is demanding that Johnny Depp double the amount that is paid to charity.

WHY IS THAT?

Johnny Depp is changing the settlement agreement. So Amber and her team insist that if Johnny wishes to change the settlement agreement, he should honour the full amount by donating $14M to charity, which after accounting for his tax deduction, is equal to his $7M payment obligation to Amber.

TIMAYA MAKES IT “BANG BANG”

This is why you should love us- we give it to you as soon as it gets out. Nigerian Afro beat artist, Timaya released the video of his hit single “Bang Bang” a few hours ago. This is one hit to convert all his lost sheep; myself inclusive. The video was shot in Miami by director Patrick Ellis.With over 2000 views already on Youtube, there are also those who can’t avoid the dislike button.

TGIF! YOU GOTTA DAB TO THIS SH*T

Askia hits us big time with this amazing comeback video. “Welcome 4 kwata” which features urban artist Skidibooy got me short of words. Rapping in “mboko” the song portrays Ghetto life struggles.

A SWAP WITH CAMEROONIAN ATHLETES COULD HAVE MADE US…

Six gold medals, six silver and a bronze at the Olympics was a wonderful performance which surely needed an over-the-top treatment. A decent accommodation and flight back home was all what was necessary. On the contrary, the Kenyan athletes were stranded in a Rio shanty town , a neighbourhood with old dilapidated buildings, and where gunshots could be heard after the Olympic village closed. The Kenyan Olympic committee is presently under a guillotine put by the Government .

YOUR RIDES DURING THE AFCON WILL BE LIKE…

Probably in order to ensure safety, consistent, and decent transportation during the games the contract had to be awarded to the best bidder. In a recent communiqué, Cameroon’s Prime Minister, Philémon Yang, announced the Portuguese group Eximtrans Sarl/Irmaos Mota as the winner of the transportation partnership contract during the African Women Cup of Nations 2016. What they will be responsible for is to finance, supply and operate a mass urban bus transport system in the city of Yaoundé during the games.

HERE IS WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT GIVING YOUR NUMBER TO JUST ANYBODY

Even if you have a fake name on Facebook, they might end up tracking you. Here’s why; WhatsApp will now share users’ phone numbers with Facebook. Facebook in turn, will use this data to match people who have exchanged phone numbers, but have not added one another as “friends” on the social network.What they want to achieve is, provide “more relevant” friend suggestions and advertisements to users. So just like me and you (maybe), some other person feels we might get betrayed by this move.

WHEN YOU ARE A “FLYING BUM”, ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN

The Airlander 10 nicknamed the “Flying bum” made its second flight on Wednesday. The results were not all too good giving that it only lasted 20 minutes in the air instead of 90.You didn’t see that? Check it out. It seems to be the slowest air crash ever. At the end of its second test flight on Wednesday, the world’s largest airplane the Airlander 10 made a nosedive, at Cardington Airfield north of London . The Good thing is everyone came out safe.
