“Drake Curse” finally ends as Toronto Raptors win epic NBA championship (photos)

June 14, 2019

Toronto Raptors had a fanatical mascot in Canadian rapper Drake all throughout the NBA finals as he fiercely backed his home team throughout the series. And now the famous ”Drake curse” is finally broken after Raptors emerged victorious in Game six of the 2019 NBA Finals at ORACLE Arena on Thursday, June 13, in Oakland, California.
Raptors picked up their first NBA Championship and shattered the bad ‘juju’ said to have plagued the Toronto rapper in the sports world after most of the teams he supported suffered defeat.
Drake turned that narrative upside down on Thursday night, June 13, after the Raptors dethroned the Golden State Warriors with a 4-2 win in the best of seven NBA Finals.
According to Bleacher Report, Drake was not courtside in Oakland but rather cheered his team on from Jurassic Park in Canada.
And when the buzzer sounded, Drake went ballistic and understandably joyous, seeing his team coast to victory over their belligerent opponent.
Drake has relentlessly supported his team not just in the Finals but through the worst of years up until this moment of victory.

Father who murdered his five children is sentenced to death

Father who murdered his five children is sentenced to death
A South Carolina father has been sentenced to death for killing his 5 children with his own hands after which he drove around with their bodies for 9 days.

Timothy Jones Jr., 37, was sentenced to death on Thursday, June 13, one week after he was convicted of five counts of murder.

The computer engineer with an $80,000-a-year job murdered his kids, ages 1 to 8, in their Lexington home in August 2014. Afterwards, he drove around with their bodies for nine days before dumping them in garbage bags on the side of a dirt road in Alabama.


Solicitor Rock Hubbard told jurors Jones has been selfish all his life and tried to break up his father’s second marriage because he wasn’t getting enough attention.

In  his own marriage, he controled his wife's every decision. When his wife left him, Jones couldn’t stand that his control was over so he took his anger out on the kids. Whenever any of his kids indicated any intention of wanting to be with their mother instead of him, he mistreated them, Hubbard said.

Jones first killed 6-year-old son Nahtahn after the boy confessed on the phone to his mother, but not to him his father, that he broke an electrical outlet, Hubbard said. Over the next several hours, Jones got cigarettes, took his oldest daughter first so she wouldn’t call for help, and left the three other kids with their brother’s body.

In a confession, Jones said he strangled 7-year-old Elias with his hands and chased down 8-year-old Merah before choking her. He then used a belt to choke 2-year-old Gabriel and 1-year-old Abigail because he said his hands were too big.

After killing the children, Jones loaded their bodies into his SUV and drove around for nine days before dumping them in five black garbage bags on a dirt road near Camden, Alabama. He was arrested hours later after an officer at a traffic checkpoint in Smith County, Mississippi, said he smelled a horrible odor of decomposition.

During the trial, Jones' father, stepmother, sister and two brothers all took the stand to ask that he be given life without parole, instead of the death sentence. Jones' father removed his shirt to show the courtroom tattoos of his slain grandchildren.

Jones ex-wife, Ms Kyzer also requested mercy for her ex-husband even though she had said "If I could personally rip his face off, I would."

"He did not show my children any mercy by any means," she said. "But my kids loved him and if I'm speaking on behalf of my kids and not myself, that's what I have to say."

Timothy Jones Jr. showed no emotion as the jury delivered the verdict after less than two hours of deliberation, according to TIME. Jones’ father, who was in court, hung his head in his hands as the verdict was read and other family members appeared to cry.

Jones is the second person to be sent to South Carolina’s death row in five years. The state has not executed anyone since 2011 and lacks the drugs to carry out lethal injection.

A Good Turn Deserved Another :MC Galaxy gifts Ubi Franklin N3m for assisting in his rent payment years ago

June 14, 2019


Singer MC Galaxy has paid forward a good deed music executive, Ubi Franklin, did for him so many years ago. The singer shared on Instagram a written cheque of N3 million in Ubi's name and explained why he was gifting the music executive such a huge sum of money. He wrote
''This life is funny, seven years ago I needed help to pay house the total I needed was 350k. So I asked a lot people for help, and no one could help me, so one of those days I went to Ubi Franklin house that I needed help with rent and he gave me 100k and cloths and I was able to hustle money to add and pay my rent, because at the time 100k then meant a lot to me it was 10 million Naira to me, so every time I had a new song to drop I will go to him and play for him “ I go Calabar” to “Sekem” etc. So I know I cannot pay him back for the favors and values but this is a token of appreciation to say thank you for everything @ubifranklintriplemg

Update: Cuba Gooding Jr. ?surrenders to NYPD on groping allegation, charged with

Oscar-winning actor, Cuba Gooding Jr. has been arrested on suspicion of forcible touching after he turned himself in.

The 51-year-old actor turned himself into authorities at about 2 p.m on Thursday, where he was arrested for the misdemeanor charge, NYPD Detective Martin Brown confirmed to The Washington Post.

According to police, Gooding touched a woman without her consent on Sunday night in Midtown Manhattan. The woman filed a police report.

The 29-year-old woman told cops the actor grabbed her breast while they were socializing around 9 p.m. at the Magic Hour Rooftop Bar and Lounge on 7th Avenue in Midtown. She also claimed that Gooding was “highly intoxicated” and that, after the alleged grab, she got into an argument with him that had to be broken up by security.

Gooding denied the accusations when approached by TMZ on Wednesday.

“I trust the system and the process,” he said. “There’s a tape that shows what really happened. That’s the most important thing.”

His arrest comes after his lawyer Mark Heller told Daily Mail that he watched a surveillance video that shows his client's interactions with the 29-year-old woman at Magic Hour Rooftop Bar & Lounge and it shows Gooding did nothing wrong.
 
According to him, the video captures the whole evening and it shows he did nothing wrong. They can't arrest someone who did nothing wrong.'

Heller said the video shows Gooding didn't touch the woman's breast, hug her or do anything inappropriate. He did note that the video merely shows the woman handing him a glass of water.

However, an NYPD source said police also watched the video and that it supports the woman's contention.

'I saw the video and there's no doubt he touches her breast,' the source said. 'We're not going against the victim. The video corroborates what she said.'
'It's a quick thing,' he said of the alleged groping. 'He's drunk, he's all over her. He puts his hands on her lap then touches her breast.'
'You don't notice a reaction immediately,' the source noted, but said the woman did call 911 to report the incident.

'You don’t even have to be married to make heaven' - Daddy Freeze

June 13, 2019


Controversial OAP, Daddy Freeze has said an individual doesn’t have to be married for them to stay blessed and happy.

He made the statement while reacting to the news of a man who killed his wife over infidelity accusations. Freeze said he realised marriage doesn’t guarantee all the good things in life and one could get them without getting married.

See his post below...
You don’t have to be married to be blessed, you don’t have to be married to be happy, you don’t have to be married to be rich or successful in business, you don’t even have to be married to make heaven.
I learnt all these when my first marriage failed and after the first 2 weeks of me being alone, I realized how much happier I truly was.
With my partner, I find it so effortless, she immediately understood my purpose and set out to help me become the best me. I could NEVER EVER have carried the #FreeNation mantle without her support and understanding in Every ramification.
The greatest lesson I learnt from my failed first marriage is; although as humans we make mistakes, we don’t have to be forced to live with all of them. When you make the mistake of choosing the wrong partner, and find yourself in a bad marriage, leave!

Photo: 35-year-old man, John Paul Emeh jailed for 16 years following shooting in London

June 13, 2019
A 35-year-old man has been jailed for 16 years following a shooting in Ealing, west London, Metropolitan Police said yesterday.

John Paul Emeh was on  Thursday, 6 June, sentenced to 16 years for possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life and 15 years for section 18 GBH with intent. Both will be served concurrently.

Emeh of Sixth Avenue, W10, was also placed on a 21-year licence and given an indefinite restraining order against the victim and witnesses in the case.

The court heard that on 22 July 2018, Emeh was lying in wait for his victim to leave a venue on Western Road, NW10.

At around 04:30hrs, he saw the 50-year-old man alongside four friends and confronted him before shooting him in the thigh with a small handgun from his pocket.

Emeh then attempted to shoot him for a second time but due to a mechanical failure, the gun did not discharge. He then fled the scene on a moped.

The victim required surgery to his leg and later told police he had been in a dispute with the suspect over the purchase of a Range Rover and that he had known him only as 'Mustafa' and 'Yousef.'

Following an investigation led by the Met's Trident and Area Crime Command, Emeh was arrested on 28 September 2018 and charged as above, before being remanded in custody.

Detective Constable Michael Clinch, who led the investigation, said: “This was a targeted and violent attack and we are pleased Emeh is no longer on our streets.

“The victim in this case was extremely fortunate not to suffer further injuries and we hope this sentence provides him with some closure.”

United States defeats Thailand 13 – 0 in world cup match (video)

June 12, 2019
Striker Alex Morgan scored five times as holders the United States began their World Cup campaign with a record 13-0 win over Thailand on Tuesday.
The Group F result was the largest margin of victory in either the men’s or women’s World Cup.
When the Americans headed for the interval 3-0 up, there was little indication of what was to come in the second half.
After netting four times in six minutes shortly after the restart, they then added six more goals in the last 16 minutes.
Morgan opened the goal spree for the title favorites, who are in pursuit of a fourth world crown, with a header in the 12th minute and from then on there was no stopping the champions.
Eight minutes later Rose Lavelle found the net with a left-footed shot while midfielder Lindsey Horan gave them a 3-0 halftime lead.
Samantha Mewis opened the floodgates five minutes after the break as the U.S. made life miserable for the Thais by regularly finding the back of the net.
In total seven Americans scored during the match – Morgan (5), Lavelle (2), Mewis (2), Horan, Megan Rapinoe, Mallory Pugh and Carli Lloyd all finding their way on to the scoresheet in a performance that is bound to strike fear into all of those teams hoping to end the United States’ reign as world champions.
“We really wanted to showcase ourselves and what we’ve been preparing for and working on and I think we did that,” said Morgan.
“Every goal matters in this tournament and so that’s what we were working on in this game. We got a lot of attacks and I think we were really clinical in the number of attacks that we did get.
“I am speechless. The ball just bounced my way today and I am looking forward to the next game.
“To see Rose Lavalle have the confidence to go at players, Sam Mewis taking on players and scoring from outside the box… I am really proud of them.”
The result surpassed Germany’s 11-0 win over Argentina in 2007 and almost doubled the U.S. own previous record – a 7-0 success over Taiwan in 1991.
“We did not do enough. They were excellent all around. We don’t have any excuse and accept they are better,” said Thailand coach Nuengrutai Srathongvian.
“We have to improve in every aspect.”
The last time the two teams met, the United States won 9-0.
U.S. coach Jillian Ellis said the result was great confidence booster but did not want to get carried away with the emphatic nature of the win.
“This only game one. It will be an incredibly hard World Cup,” she said.
The U.S. will next face Chile on Sunday, while Thailand will be up against Sweden.
