Kendrick Lamar splashes $2.65million on a sprawling mansion in Calabasas (Photos)

Compton rapper, Kendrick Lamar, 30, has splashed $2.65million on a sprawling estate in the upscale LA suburb of Calabasas, California.

According to TMZ, the "Humble" rapper will not live in the mansion which has over 5400 square feet, boasting six bedrooms and six bathrooms, as the property is said to be an investment.

An insider who confirmed Kendrick's new purchase says: 'Kendrick will not live in the home ... it's strictly for investment. Truth be told, entertainers who use their money to buy investment properties almost always score big over time.'

The new home offers all the amenities required for a modern mansion. It has a beautiful pool with surrounding lounge area, master bathroom featuring his-and-hers vanity areas, while the inside of the home has both marble and hard-wood flooring among others.

94-year-old Nigerian sickle cell survivor speaks of her years of illness and how she survived against the odds.

A 93-year-old Nigerian woman who has Sickle Cell anaemia has granted an interview in which she spoke about her life, living with sickle cell, marriage, childbirth and surviving against the odds.

Alhaja Ashiata Abike Onikoyi nee Laguda will be 94 years old this October and she lives a full life though she has the dreaded SS genotype. Alhaja Laguda, as she is popularly called, said during an interview with The Nation, that she stopped having Sickle Cell attacks since she turned 40, though her genotype remains same.

"Doctors see me and wonder what a miracle I am.," the nonagenarian said.

She recalled that being sickly was tougher at the time she was growing up because nobody knew about sickle cell anaemia. She was always sick to the point that in a whole year, she may attend school only about three months of the entire annual school calendar while she spent the other months sick and at home. She was given all sorts of concoctions to cure her illness due to the ignorance surrounding the ailment.

“I was taken to the hospital; then they still brought all sorts of concoction from the Igbo tribe, from Yoruba people and from Hausa part of the country, because it was a very serious sickness. I just took everything that they gave me. They would cut me on every part of my body but I gave myself to them because I wanted to live.”

When the illness attacked her hands, she recalled that she would not be able to use them for anything – not even to eat. When it attacked her legs, she would not be able to walk, and whenever she was at home, she must be by the fire-side, to keep her warm.

“They called me abiku and several other names, but thank God things have changed today. Also, the government is doing everything within its power to enlighten the people about the disease.”

She said her father pampered her because he feared he could lose her at any moment. So he mostly kept her away from school.

She said: "If he didn’t die, I probably wouldn’t have been educated because he said I should be left at home, so that they can watch over me every time.

“He insisted that because of my nature, no teacher should beat me. He would say I should be left at home even when I was not having any attacks; but when he died I had no choice because my mum insisted I went to school. That, in a nutshell, was how it became possible for me to go to school.”

She added: "If I went to school and it was going to rain, they would bring a car to pick me, because the rain must not touch me. I must not go out in the cold, I must not step on wet ground; I couldn’t even stay where there was a fan, let alone in a cold weather.

"But all that is gone now. Since I clocked forty, I have not had any attacks."

Alhaja later wanted to go to England for Secretariat Studies but concerned persons advised her mother against it because they thought the cold weather will not be conducive to her health. She stood her grounds and travelled and there she got better care because they understood her illness.

Alhaja Laguda later married, more than once, and had children. The first man she married was her medical doctor, Dr. Alakija. He was married at the time but loved her and understood her condition so he also married her and came to her rescue when at Queen's College, Lagos, she was expected to be involved in certain activities that were too tasking for her health.

She had two children with her first husband before his death. Then she remarried and had more kids. When asked how many husbands she had, she replied, “I had many husbands o!”

She said all the men she married knew she was sickly but they didn’t care because in those days, not everyone knew about sickle cell anaemia.

“They loved me so, and married me so,” she explained

She had four of her children before travelling out of Nigeria and said childbirth was pretty easy for her. But the delivery of her last child was not so easy and she thought she would die.

She recalled: “I remember when I had my last child, I told the doctor that I would die that day but he said no, that I would not die. He and other doctors on duty were on ground, telling me that they were weighing the blood I was losing and they gave me the best treatment. In fact, at lunch time I was up and doing; I even had lunch with the doctors.”

Alhaja Laguda has remained strong all her life and even continued doing herlaundryy herself up until the age of 90 when she suffered a fall and began to take things slow. She attributes her long and healthy life to praying and trying as much as possible to lead a normal life.

She said: "What gave me the strength is God because I am a prayer warrior. I prayed, I fasted regularly and I have visited the holy land (Mecca) thirteen times, to serve my God and ask him for what I want.”

As regards nourishment, Alhaja Laguda said she doesn't avoid any foods and eats everything.

She said: “I eat everything that people eat. This morning I had bread and egg. I don’t have any don’ts at all. I eat sugar also.

“I eat dates a lot also because they are from Mecca and they are very good fruits.”

She said she does a lot of exercising and believes walking is the best form of exercise.

She said:, “Before I fell, I used to walk from my house here in Ilasamaja, Lagos to Mushin and Oshodi market as a form of exercise because I believe walking is the best exercise one can engage in. I walked like that until I was 90 when I fell and had to stop.”

Prior to her fall, Alhaja Laguda used to go to hospitals to talk to people living with Sickle Cell anaemia, lecture them, and encourage them. She called on parents with children suffering from sickle cell anaemia to take care of the children very well, feed them well and show them lots of love.

“This will make it easier for them to live with the disease. When it is cold, keep them warm; don’t keep them at home because they are always sick; let them go to school, it is very important,” she said.

She said she hopes to leave this earth soon, adding: “I want to go but God has not killed me, so I have no choice but live.

Rob Kardashian to take Blac Chyna to court for letting their child near her 18-year-old lover and also for fighting in park in presence of Dream

Rob Kardashian is angry with Blac Chyna for putting their daughter Dream in harm's way when she attempted to fight a woman at Six Flags over the weekend, so he's taking her to family court.

According to sources connected to Rob, he has been worried about his daughter's health and safety for months because of the way Chyna has been carrying on. He is uncomfortable with Chyna having men in the house around his daughter, especially 18-year-old YBN Almighty Jay who Chyna is dating and allows near her children.

The last straw for Rob was when Chyna turned Dream's stroller into a weapon as she attacked a woman for touching her child. Following the incident, Rob has asked his lawyers to file legal documents asking for a hearing to set clear rules for Blac Chyna, letting her know what she can and cannot do when the child is present.

The father-of-one wants an order where Chyna cannot introduce a lover to their child unless the relationship lasts longer than 6 months. Rob also thinks the $20,000 he pays Chyna a month in child support is too much and he wants the court to address this, considering that she now earns more than him and they share joint custody.

Meek Mill judge denies request to reconsider his sentence

The Philadelphia judge who sentenced Meek Mill to 2-4 years in state prison for violating probation from his 2009 drug and weapons case in November 2017, has denied his appeal to be released from prison on bail.

According to court documents obtained by the New York Daily News, Judge Genece Brinkleyissued the decision after refusing to recuse herself from the rapper's case.

“Defendant received proper notice of all alleged probation violations in advance of his hearing,” Brinkley wrote. “The sentence imposed was not manifestly excessive and this Court stated sufficient reasons on the record to support a state sentence of 2 to 4 years.”

Brinkley also denied allegations of her “bias and unusual personal interest” in the case after Meek Mill's lawyer Joe Tacopina claimed that she pressured the Philadelphia rapper to leave his management company, record a Boyz II Men cover and give her a shout out.

“This bald allegation has no basis in reality,” Brinkley wrote about the song request. “There is zero evidence to support this claim. The court has repeatedly told Defendant that he cannot demand special treatment just because he has chosen to be an entertainer.”

Chika Ike writes about how she never liked her body growing up and how she feels about it now

Actress and entrepreneur, Chika Ike took to her Instagram page to narrate how she was constantly bullied while growing up because of her body and height. Read her story below...

I never liked my body growing up and was constantly bullied about it. I was so skinny and was the tallest in my class. I never looked forward to morning assembly because I'll have to stand at the back of the class or class presentations to talk about “your best friend “ because I’ll be described as the thin girl.

I can remember eating all sorts to things to gain weight but nothing worked, I really craved to have some flesh on me. I was called all sorts of names like Lepa, thin girl and Agric chicken because I was so skinny and tall. So I started modeling as soon as I graduated from secondary school because modeling agents thought I had "the look”. T

oday the reverse is the case, I'm on all sorts of diet programs and exercising every other day to keep the weight I’ve always wanted in check, I feel bad after licking ice cream or eating anything with high-calorie content because ill have to suffer in the gym.

Growing up slim wasn't cool now its cool. The truth is you have to constantly love you, you can't be cool to everyone, the world will always have a standard of what you should be, who you should be and how you should live your life. If you want to make changes or improvements let it not be because of pressure or people’s unconscious bias about you.Do it for you.

You should hold your pen and draw your life plan... Do you... Mind your business.....Run your race. Do not let anyone define you or rush you with their timeline. We all have different stories, journeys, and different clocks. You are you and that is your power

Mark Zuckerberg fires back at Tim Cook’s criticism of Facebook

Mark Zuckerberg has publicly responded to Apple CEO Tim Cook's harsh criticism about the way Facebook handles the private information of its users. He called Cook's argument "extremely glib".

The tiff between two of the most powerful men in Silicon Valley started last week when Cook was asked what he would do if he were Zuckerberg in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica scandal. He responded saying "I wouldn't be in this situation."

The Apple CEO went on to denounce social media platforms for monetizing users and their corresponding private data. His larger point was that social media services are free, but in order to remain that way, the companies must sell advertising based on some user information and of course, Zuckerberg defended this practice.

"You know, I find that argument, that if you’re not paying that somehow we can’t care about you, to be extremely glib," Zuckerberg said in a recent Ezra Klein Show podcast published by Vox. "And not at all aligned with the truth," Zuckerberg added. "The reality here is that if you want to build a service that helps connect everyone in the world, then there are a lot of people who can’t afford to pay. And therefore, as with a lot of media, having an advertising-supported model is the only rational model that can support building this service to reach people."

What's perhaps most shocking in this feud between two of the world's richest people is that Zuckerberg dragged another billionaire into the conversation. "I thought Jeff Bezos had an excellent saying on this in one of his Kindle launches a number of years back," Zuckerberg said in the Ezra Klein interview.

"He said, 'There are companies that work hard to charge you more, and there are companies that work hard to charge you less.' And at Facebook, we are squarely in the camp of the companies that work hard to charge you less and provide a free service that everyone can use." The 33-year-old billionaire finished his thought by saying that he thought it was absurd to think that charging customers money was the best way to show you have their interest in mind. "To the contrary, I think it’s important that we don’t all get Stockholm Syndrome and let the companies that work hard to charge you more convince you that they actually care more about you," he said. "Because that sounds ridiculous to me." As for who has the last laugh, that appears to be pretty heavily favoring Mr. Cook at the moment. Facebook lost more than $40 billion in market value in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica user privacy controversy.
