But the night was not all about Usher as Stormzy and the other artistes also gave a great account of themselves with their performances. The height of the UK rap giant’s performance was bringing his young brothers Yaw Tog and Kwesi Arthur to join him to perform the remix version of their song titled Sore.

Sarkodie got the fans screaming all the time he was on stage.

Stonebwoy, Tems and Gyakie also did amazingly well. SZA was not only beautiful but phenomenal on stage.

“I was scared ya’ll wouldn’t know my music,” she said when she paused her performances to speak.

However, it turned out that some of the audience knew her music. It was after her performance that Usher was introduced.

The Global Citizen Festival which is the 10th edition is a celebration of music and social change that brings together artistes, activists, world leaders, and Global Citizens to demand urgent change on the world’s biggest issues.

The Global Citizen Festival stage provides a platform for world leaders, business leaders, and philanthropists to make commitments in the mission to end extreme poverty and drive real, lasting change.

Several dignitaries including Ghana’s President Akufo Addo attended the festival on Saturday.

Nana Tornado, who is a known rival of showbiz personality Afia Schwarzenegger, has been trolling her since reports of her alleged warrant of arrest went viral.

A Tema High Court had last week sentenced Afia to a ten-day jail sentence for contempt over comments she and Mr Logic passed on a lawsuit that Chairman Wontumi filed against her.
Tornado seems to be happy about what is happening to his one-time friend.
In an Instagram post, he shared a screenshot of a chat someone had sent him with a link to Afia’s arrest in the chat.

“WHERE IS ASIBOLANGA,” he wrote in the caption.

Also in a video he shared on Instagram, he praised Chairman Wontumi for taking action.
“Today is the happiest day of my life. If they say ‘Happiest Day’, I Tornado, if they ask me when is the happiest day of my life, I will say today is (sic),” he said.
“Ghanaians do you remember in some time past, Afia Schwarzenegger sat on United Showbiz to defame Chairman Wontumi, Ashanti Regional Minister? Chairman Wontumi. Chairman, if you say can, you still will find a way to deliver. Chairman wherever you are, I salute you, Sir (sic),” he added.

American rapper, Kanye West, has revealed what destroyed his marriage with his estranged wife, Kim Kardashian.

The ex-couple recently reached a divorce settlement months after their separation.

Since their split, the couple has been in the news over issues of property and custody of their children.

But court documents filed last week, in Los Angeles superior court, through their attorneys, said they had reached an agreement as they asked the judge to approve their agreed terms.

Kanye, who will now pay $200,000 monthly as child support to Kim, with the duo having joint custody of the kids, said pornography destroyed his home.

“The use of porn destroyed my family, but Jesus will heal everything.

“Remove any and all forms of pornography from Twitter and every platform. Pornography is the product of pedophilia. When grown men look at porn they are watching someone’s daughter relive trauma for money,” he tweeted on Sunday afternoon.
