The Passing Of A Geto Boys Legend- Hip Hop Mourns.

It’s been a sad week for hip hop as they mourn the passing of one the greats to grace the rap industry: Bushwick Bill. Richard Shaw — better known by his rap moniker Bushwick Bill — may have been born with dwarfism, but his presence was larger than life. He was a member of popular Geto Boys that dominated the early ‘90s with 1991 album, we can’t be stopped which spawned the massive single, ”Minds Playing Tricks On Me.” The track peaked at No. 23 on the Billboard Hot 100 and landed at No. 1 on the U.S. Hot Rap Songs chart.


Nigeria Makes It To Top 4 At The Africa Women Cup of Nations

After a 4-0 victory against Kenya on Saturday the 26th, the Nigerian Falcons have gained a place on the Semi-final table for the 2016 Women’s Africa Nations cup.


Goals came early as the first was brilliantly scored by Ngozi Okobi just two minutes into the match on her first start of the tournament. The Kenyan team created some impressive plays strong enough to threaten the Nigerians but this was not enough to stop their opponents as the Falcons doubled their goal score with header from Faith Ikidi which went beyond the reach of the Kenyan goal keeper.


Nigeria’s Coach Gernot Rohr Struggles With Team’s Defense

 "We have been trying to find the right balance but the struggle in the rightback position is something we hope to sort out. Musa Muhammed played in that position against Tanzania and he was good, but he's not playing at his club in Turkey İstanbul Başakşehir. We have also played [Wilfred] Ndidi, [Kenneth] Omeruo and Shehu [Abdullahi] but there is no permanent man…This is something we have to fix.", Gernot Rohr talking about the issues he is presently having with the team’s right fullback position, one which has been difficult to refill since the departure of Odia in 2010.
