A few days back, Ugandans were thrown in a frenzy after popular Ugandan business tycoon, Jack Pemba released his sex tape with his former lover, socialite, Honey Suleiman.
The video which has been making the rounds on the internet got people talking but largely about the below average grade of Pemba’s members and also about how bad Suleiman was in bed, many accusing her of not being on her grind enough.
The socialite finally released a video addressing the sex tape. In the video, Honey Suleiman revealed that Pemba threatened to release the video for a while even demanding $5000 to keep the video out of the public glare but she finally told him off. She admitted that her family and friends were well aware of the video before Pemba released it so there are no shockers. In her words:
“I know about the video and my whole family is aware of it. If Jack Pemba felt like it was okay to share our intimate moment when we were both in love, I have nothing to do about it. He is an old and mature man and am sure he had his own intentions leaking it. So please stop calling me and telling me about it… Like I said before I am not paying anyone any amount of money for your blackmails. You can release the second video as well am not paying anyone 5000usd for videos we made out of love. My family is not paying anything. So Jack Pemba feel free to release the second video as well. You won’t have anything else to blackmail me with. Am a strong woman.”
Regarding her bedroom skills, Honey Suleiman insisted that there was absolutely nothing wrong with them.She added that she would not share her bedroom secrets with the world.
Rumor has it that Suleiman left the country some days back to get out of the public glare and cool off. We also gathered that the video was released just two days after a commercial division of High Court ordered the immediate arrest for Pemba for failing to pay him US$ 300,000 that he lent her back in November 2017.

On the 29th of April, Tanzanian star singer; Alikiba walked down the aisle with his longtime sweetheart, Amina Khalef alongside his brother who also walked down the aisle with his heartthrob.
Alikiba and his longtime sweetheart Amina KhalefIn attendance were the creme d la creme of the Tanzanian entertainment industry. However the absence of former Miss Tanzania, Wema Sepetu was rather conspicuous. As expected, her absence got a lot of fans talking and rumors spread like wild fire.
Thankfully, the star actress who has recently frequented blog headlines addressed her absence in a recent interview. She revealed that she could not attend the union as she had hosted her younger sibling to a grand birthday party that unfortunately crashed with Alikiba’s wedding.
In her words :
“That because hiyo siku nilikuwa namfanyia msogo wangu birthday party , mdogo wangu alikuwa akitimiza miaka 20 na mwaka uliopita sikumfanyia party na mwaka huu nilihaidi kwamba i will do the party. So family first na Alikiba anajua kabisa kuwa nina ninamsapoti,na sina kinyongo nae na anajua hilo na ninamtakia kila la kheri katika maisha yake ya ndoa,”
Which loosely translates to “I had to host a birthday party for my younger sibling so I couldn’t attend and family comes first…”
Alikiba and his longtime sweetheart held their white wedding on the 29th of April, a ceremony held shortly after the couple performed their Muslim marriage rights.

Controversy is widely known to be a trade in stock of most celebrities across the world. And Nigeria's sensational singer, Davido, is no exception. In the last few years,the "Aye" crooner has been enmeshed in one controversy or the other that almost ruined his career. Recall what happened in 2016, when
Davido and his baby mama, Sophia got into a nasty public fight over the custody of their daughter. Davido had claimed that Sophia was into drugs at the same time breastfeeding their baby, a situation which he didn't take slightly.
The drama took a different twist when Sophia got her uncle and media mogul, Dele Momodu involved. Davido wasn't going to lay low just because of the status of Mr. Momodu as he called him out, he even went as far as making a reference to him in two of his featured songs. It's also fresh in the minds of the lovers of the pop star, when he was embroiled in another controversy last year after he lost three of his friends, Tagbo Umieke, Olugbemiga 'DJ Olu' Abiodun and Chime Amaechi all within one week.
Earlier this year, the pop star also got involved in another controversy at the Murtala Mohummed International Airport, Ikeja, leaving many to wonder whether his name is associated with controversy. He had arrived from a foreign trip and security personnel at the airport were trying to verify whether the tags on Davido's luggage corresponded with the reclaimed luggage. The inquiry of the personnel did not go down well with one of Davido's aides who refused to tender the tags and resorted to abusive words against the staff, resulting in exchange of blows and assaults. The situation was said to have degenerated and the security personnel called for reinforcement. The aide was overpowered and was then taken to 'Tango City' a secluded place at the airport where unruly passengers and touts are kept by security agencies. It was at this point that the attention of Davido who was already outside the terminal awaiting the collection of his luggage from his aide was called to the terminal incident. Indeed, hardly has the dust settled than Davido got into another controversy last weekend, after South African actress, Boity, who reportedly accused the pop star of making sexual advances at her after his concert in Zimbabwe .According to Zimbabwe newspaper, H-Metro, Davido and South African celebrity presenter Boity had a nasty confrontation at a local hotel after Davidio's 30 Billion Concert held at the Harare International Conference Centre ( HICC).
The fight happened in the early hours of Sunday morning and eyewitnesses said it was such a bad clash that left some of the Meikles hotel furniture vandalised. Police had to be called in to calm the situation down. The newspaper said, what really caused the fight was not immediately ascertained as it learnt via a grapevine version that Davido told Boity in an unconventional way that he wanted to get her in bed, something that did not go well with Boity.
It is then said Boity started throwing tantrums, shouting at Davido. A popular and controversial Zimbabwean socialite, Genius "Ginimbi" Kadungure who brought Davido to Zimbabwe for his show, then allegedly tried to intervene and calm the situation down but Boity reportedly slapped him.
It was also reported that Davido was also manhandled by Boity during the fracas which made one of Davido's aides mad as he threatened Boity never to visit Nigeria. Could it be that the pop star has a bond with controversy?

Nairobi — Koffi Olomide's planned performance in Kakamega town has been called off.
The Immigration Department is understood to have repulsed efforts to lift off a visa ban slapped on the 61-year-old Congolese singer two years ago.
"His promoters tried everything but the Kenyan people are not ready to offer him a visa. Maybe in another year's time things will be possible," a source explained.
The Selfie hit maker was set to bag an estimated Sh25 million for the performance at Bukhungu stadium.
His itinerary, confirmed by Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya, also included gracing and entertaining guests at the Devolution Conference which was supposed to end yesterday.
Olomide had announced via his social media pages last week that he will be visiting Kenya for the first time in two years, following his dramatic deportation in 2016.
