Christiane Amanpour divorcing husband after 20 years

CNN host Christiane Amanpour and husband Jamie Rubin are divorcing after 20 years of marriage, according to a friend.

The couple, who are both journalists, fell in love over ‘late night margaritas’ while working in war-torn Sarajevo.

They tied the knot in a swanky wedding ceremony in 1998, in Italy, attended by John F. Kennedy Jr. and wife Carolyn, diplomat Richard Holbrooke, Clinton aide Sidney Blumenthal and former Deputy National Security Adviser James Steinberg.

Despite the plans to divorce, as first reported by the Washington Post, the couple appeared together last weekend at their only child Darius’ graduation from the 500-year-old English boarding school for boys, Tonbridge School in Kent.

Christiane Amanpour, 60, the host of CNN’s global affairs show ‘Amanpour,’ recently took over Charlie Rose’s prime-time PBS slot after he was accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women.

Jamie, 58, a former diplomat, journalist and Bill Clinton-era assistant secretary of state for public affairs, is writing and consulting for lobbying firm Ballard Partners.

The couple have just one child together, Darius, (pictured with them in 2008) who has just graduated from high school 

Christiane Amanpour, who was born to an Iranian father and a British mother in London and raised in Tehran, is a highly accomplished journalist who has won countless awards, including Emmys and Peabodys, as well as numerous honorary doctorates and degrees for her work.

Amanpour moved to the US to study journalism at the University of Rhode Island, which she graduated summa cum laude, before being hired by CNN on the foreign desk in Atlanta, Georgia, in 1983.

Amanpour’s first big assignment was covering the Iran–Iraq War, and she has since reported on major crises from many of the world’s hotspots, including Iraq, Afghanistan, the Palestinian territories, Iran, Israel, Pakistan, Somalia, Rwanda, and the Balkans.

She has also interviewed major political figures and world leaders from across the globe, from former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, and ex Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, to Moammar Gadhafi and even the Dalai Lama.

In 2013, the couple announced they were moving back to London and Christiane called Jamie a ‘true hero’ for moving to England for her.

Jamie, who helped raise their son, served in the State Department under President Bill Clinton, before he joined Sky News as a presenter, and later a commentator.

He graduated from Columbia University, from which he also received a master’s degree in international affairs and was a member of Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign.

OJ ADVICES GOSPEL MUSICIANS TO STOP USING JUJU

Ghanaian gospel musician Michael Oware Sakyi, known in gospel music circles as OJ has stated that a gospel musician tried using voodoo powers (Juju) on him.

He had made this statement on a Christian television program “Restoration” where he was asked if it was true some gospel musicians in Ghana use voodoo powers known in Ghana as juju in their line of work.

OJ confirmed in the affirmative, using his personal experience of getting attacked through juju.  He said, his Cd’s were taken to a ritualist shrine by a gospel musician with the intention of bringing down his music career which was revealed through prayer and three prophecies, but the person didn’t succeed.

The “ETISEN” singer also expressed that, not all gospel musicians are from God and that some are in the gospel music industry for their stomach and the benefits that come with being a gospel artist.

“People have very funny reasons for doing things. Some of us what we are doing is a calling and it is a covenant that my grandfather had with God to give him somebody like this the family. I don’t struggle to write my songs. I can’t run with Usain Bolt,” he further noted.

He also advised that gospel musicians, who are not called by God, should find other work and stop bringing down musicians who are progressing.

OJ is known in Ghana’s music industry as one of the best song writers. He has a lot of interesting and motivating songs which have been described by many as informative and valuable to life to his credit.

Some of his songs include, ‘Onipa Hia Mmoa,’ ‘Maye Se Mo Pen,’ ‘Apo Jesu,’ ‘Tete Botan,’ among others.

Akon wants to build ‘real-life Wakanda’ using a currency called AKoin

Akon says he’s planning to release a new cryptocurrency named after himself – called Akoin.

Speaking at the Cannes Lions Festival on Monday, the Locked Up singer said he believed cryptocurrency could be “the saviour of Africa”.

AKoin’s official website says the singer wants the app “on every mobile phone” between now and December.

And Akon says he’s also planning to build a “crypto city” in Senegal which he calls “a real-life Wakanda”

The AKoin website

Just like the fictional land of Wakanda in Marvel’s Black Panther, Akon promises says his city will be a “futuristic environment”.

The website says Akon has been “gifted” 2,000 acres of land by the President of Senegal to build the city – which is also named after himself.

Akon Crypto City will apparently be “a short drive” from Dakar, the capital of Senegal.

He calls it “the first 100% crypto-based city with AKoin at the centre of transactional life”.

Under the “Akoin Ecosystem”, consumers will be able to buy, hold and spend cryptocurrency straight from their smartphones.

“It brings the power back to the people and brings the security back into the currency system,” Akon explained.

“It also allows the people to utilise it in ways where they can advance themselves and not allow government to do those things that are keeping them down.”

However, Akon admitted he didn’t know all the technical aspects of his new venture.

“I come with the concepts and let the geeks figure it out,” he said.

Cryptocurrency is a digital or virtual currency that operates independently from a central bank.

It uses cryptography (the conversion of information into an almost uncrackable code) to secure and verify transactions.

This makes it extremely difficult to counterfeit.

The first and probably most famous cryptocurrency is Bitcoin, which was created by an unknown person using the name Satoshi Nakamoto in 2009.

Several celebrities have endorsed or invested in cryptocurrency, including Katy Perry, 50 Cent and Ashton Kutcher.

AKoin is one of many projects Akon has announced in Africa.

While he was born in Missouri, Akon is of Senegalese descent and spent much of his childhood there.

In 2007 he co-founded the Konfidence Foundation, a health and education charity for underprivileged children in West Africa and the United States.

He also co-founded the Akon Lighting Africa project in 2014, which Akon’s site says has brought solar power to 18 African countries so far.

XXXTentacion, controversial rapper, shot dead in Florida aged 20

US rapper XXXTentacion, who quickly rose to fame with two consecutive hit albums, has been killed aged 20.

He was leaving a motorcycle dealership in south Florida on Monday when an armed suspect shot him.

Police in Broward County said XXXTentacion, whose real name is Jahseh Onfroy, was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

He was often described as one of rap’s most controversial artists and was facing domestic violence charges.US rapper XXXTentacion's car pictured after the shooting

The rapper, who first found an audience by uploading songs to the website SoundCloud, had been hailed as a breakthrough talent and tributes have been pouring in from hip-hop luminaries in the wake of his death.

The county sheriff’s office said that Onfroy was leaving the dealership shortly before 16:00 local time when two armed suspects approached.

At least one of them shot him before both fled the scene in Deerfield Beach, which is 43 miles (69km) north of Miami, in a dark-coloured SUV.

Investigators said it appeared to be a “possible robbery”. Video posted on social media apparently showed Onfroy slumped in his car.

A witness told celebrity news website TMZ that multiple shots rang out outside the dealership.

The rapper, whose hit songs include SAD! and Moonlight, quickly rose to prominence following the release of his debut album 17 last August.

His follow-up ? debuted at the top of the Billboard 200 chart in March and has been listened to hundreds of millions of times online.

The album tackled subjects such as depression and was praised by some of rap’s most high-profile stars.

But his short career was plagued by allegations of domestic violence. He was facing 15 felony charges at the time of his death, including aggravated battery of a pregnant woman.

XXXTentacion had a troubled upbringing and was expelled from middle school for fighting, but he channelled his energy and fury into music.

He quickly became the most popular artist in the genre known as SoundCloud Rap, defined by its languid, hazy beats and wide-ranging influences.

Rapper XXXTentacion, also known as Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy

His surging popularity was noted by the music industry and, by October 2017, he had scored a distribution agreement reportedly worth $6 million (£4.5m).

But his career was already being overshadowed by his legal problems. Fans were apparently unswayed, sending his latest album to number one in the US.

Rapper Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs described XXXTentacion as “one of the most interesting people I’ve ever met.”DJ and record producer Diplo said the rapper had wanted him and Skrillex to finish his next album, ending his message with a broken heart emoji.

Rapper J Cole hailed the star’s “enormous talent and limitless potential”. “God bless his family, friends and fans,” he posted.

Documentary maker Louis Theroux said: “Notwithstanding personal demons, he was a huge talent & bringing a beautiful new feel to hip hop. So sad.”
