Lizzo sends a Powerful Message to Americans on Election Day with a Photo of Herself dressed Half-Naked with the US Flag

 

Singer, Lizzo sends a powerful message on election day with revealing photo of herself half-dressed in US flag

 

American singer, Lizzo took to Instagram to deliver a powerful message to encourage her fans to stay determined and hopeful as they go out to vote on the last day of the US presidential election.

 

The 32-year-old singer shared the encouraging words alongside a photo of herself half-dressed in a US flag that barely covered her body.

 

She wrote in the post:

 

When I think of this country I don’t think of its laws I think of its people.

I think about how we were raised to be patriotic of violence, propaganda & war.

I think about how this country is owned by the oppressor and how the oppressed are locked in a valley of capitalism.

But I also think of the young people who refuse to be spoon fed mistruths. I think of the elders who bucked against hateful prejudices even when it felt impossible….

Because of you, I’m still hopeful.

I believe in a country that teaches the true history so we can better understand where we live and how we can do better.

I believe in a country that listens to the cries of the protester and doesn’t politicize death.

I believe in restoration of this beautiful land and respecting the communities of people who owned America before colonizers renamed it.

I believe in fairness, equality, a complete removal of religion in places where it does not belong. Let religion live in the churches and places of worship… the quiet prayer rooms, the joyful congregations.. and out of Congress.

I believe in so much, and if I believe it one day I can see it. It may not be tomorrow it may not be today, but it will be one day if we stay activated.

We the people, ALL the people, deserve it.
Today’s the last day to vote. Stay in line, stay determined and thank YOU for voting.

Omah Lay shares sad experience in Uganda after his release

Nigerian singer, Omah Lay has shared his sad experience in Uganda and how he was arrested and treated like a common thief.

Recall earlier this month, Omah was arrested for violating the COVID-19 rules in Uganda.

He explained to his Ugandan fans that he never intended to put them in harms way, and whatever action he took while in Uganda, was in the presence of the Ugandan Police.

He showed appreciation to his mom, fans and celebrities for showing him love during his arrest and making sure that he returns safely.

In his words;

“The past few days have been some of the toughest of my life that I wouldn’t wish them on anyone. Out in a new country with some beautiful people, the next thing I’m being treated like a common thief.

First off I want to thank all the amazing fans that came out to see me in Uganda, the smiles on your happy faces that evening would be one of my happiest memories. Also I wanna clarify that putting you in harms way was never my intentions!

Before we came out to Uganda, the show promoters confirmed and proved to us they’d secured all the clearances which of course included Covid 19 compliance….At that point, my sole obligation became to make myself available to be taken to the venue and entertain, which I did in the full glance and protection of the Ugandan police.

Secondly, to my mom, my family, my team, my fans, friends that I caused sleepless nights waiting and praying for me, I apologize for putting you through all that;…on the other hand I can’t thank you enough, I damned near lost my mind but your prayers and messages kept me going! Thank you so much!

Finally, big THANK YOU to everyone for your efforts, prayers, messages, tweets (Damn! Y’all went hard!).Big shout out to the musicians, the celebrities, fans (Again and again🙏🏾), my family, my friends, my Label, The Nigerian Mission in Uganda, The Presidency, The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Madam Abike. Thank you all so much!I have put this behind me and back to what I know how to do best. One Africa ✊🏿Omah is home! 🤘🏾 Love,Omah 💜”.

Marsai Martin Emerges the youngest Hollywood Executive Producer, breaking the Guinness World Record

Marsai Martin, 16, Emerges the youngest Hollywood Executive Producer, breaking the Guinness World Record for the youngest Hollywood Executive Producer.

She was only 14 years old when she executively produced the 2019 film “Little,” in which she also starred alongside Regina Hall and Issa Rae.

Marsai is Known for her role in the hit show Blackish, Marsai Martin (USA) has now earned the Guinness World Records title for youngest Hollywood executive producer for her breakout film Little (USA).

The idea for the movie began in her living room where she first brought the idea to her parents.

After workshopping the concept Martin took her proposal to Blackish creator, Kenya Barris, and in her own words, “the rest was history”.

“It feels crazy, honestly,” Martin said in a video of her certificate presentation. “A world record? That’s insane.”

Although Marsai is now 16 years old, she technically broke the record in 2019 but she wasn’t presented with this award and officially declared a record-breaker by Guinness until now.

“To be able to create a film, to star in it and be with your favourite stars, and actually seeing that entire experience was so amazing,” – Masai Martin said during the certificate presentation.

Marsai, who came to fame starring as Dianne on “Black-ish”, reportedly pitched the idea for the film herself to “Black-ish” producer Kenya Barris when she was 10.

After the pitch was accepted, Martin signed a deal with Universal Pictures, developing scripted projects, last year.

The record makes sure to note that she was only 14 and 241 days old when “Little” was released.

Martin will appear in the 2021 edition of the physical Guinness World Records book and in the meantime, her production company, Genius Productions, is currently working on another film, “StepMonster.”
