Earlier this month, rumors began circulating that The Migos were splitting up with Quavo and Takeoff releasing their own music under the moniker Unc and Phew. Already, the new duo has released a song called “Hotel Lobby” from their upcoming project announced recently. Now, it’s Offset’s turn, and he used social media to let fans hear what he’s been working on. Offset took to his Instagram Story to play the new music he’s been crafting.
The Migos-split rumors began after Offset unfollowed the other two members of the trio group on Instagram. Additionally, when asked by a member of the paparazzi about a potential group split, Quavo wouldn’t confirm nor deny the development. Officially, none of The Migos’ members have verified the claims.
3. South Africa: Ayanda Thabethe sets the record straight about her ‘divorce’ from Andile Ncube
First of all we didn’t get divorced because we never signed. So let’s get this fact straight as well. Thanks. https://t.co/XhH3yIzYhE

TV presenter Ayanda Thabethe recently took Twitter to set the record straight about the end of her marriage with TV and radio personality Andile Ncube. A while ago, Ayanda and Andile used to be one of South Africa’s IT couples. Of course, they have moved on since parting ways, with Ayanda most recently welcoming her first child with her new partner. But controversial blogger Musa Khawula recently decided to stir the pot with a post about Ayanda and Andile. “Remember when Andile Ncube and Ayanda Thabethe got divorced and they never spoke about the reasons behind their divorce,” Khawula tweeted.
Thabethe was quick to clarify that she and the reality TV star actually never got divorced as they never signed a marriage certificate. “First of all we didn’t get divorced because we never signed. So let’s get this fact straight as well. Thanks,” she tweeted. In a separate Tweet, she further explained to a Twitter user that all the factors regarding her then customary marriage had been handled and there was no drama between her and Andile.

Nigeria’s Kunle Adeyanju has finished the treacherous journey from London to Lagos on a motorbike in his campaign to raise awareness as well as funds to end polio in Africa. He arrived in Lagos on Sunday after covering over 12,000km (7,500 miles) across 14 countries in 40 days. He said that he was using the journey to give back to society by educating women and children along the route about polio.
Adeyanju said the support he received throughout the journey was beyond his expectation. Many people offered to donate to the cause through the Rotary Club. The 44-year-old said passing through the Sahara desert was the most difficult part of the journey. It took him seven days.
5. PSG accused of ‘cheating’ FFP rules with Mbappe extension as La Liga chief Tebas confirms complaint to UEFA

Paris Saint-Germain has been accused of “cheating” Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules to tie Kylian Mbappe down to a contract extension, with Liga chief Javier Tebas confirming he will be filing a formal complaint to UEFA. Mbappe shocked the football world by announcing his decision to sign a new three-year deal at PSG on May 21, after months of being strongly linked with a free transfer to Real Madrid. The World Cup winner had reportedly agreed to terms with the Blancos only to perform a late U-turn, leaving Liga chief Tebas enraged.
The Spanish football chief described Mbappe’s new contract as “scandalous” while questioning how PSG was able to afford to improve his wage packet after posting huge debts in recent years. Tebas has now doubled down on his initial comments and suggested UEFA is in the pocket of Parc des Princes President Nasser Al-Khelaifi. Tems Platinum Song
