Elton John To Headline Festival’s Iconic Pyramid Stage In Final UK show

Elton John is the first headline performer to be announced for Glastonbury Festival 2023.

 

The Official Charts Record Breaker – who boasts the UK’s biggest-selling single of all time – is set to play the iconic Worthy Farm next summer, in what will be the final UK date of his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour.

 

Elton tops the bill on Sunday, June 25 2023, and explains he can’t wait to play ‘the greatest festival in the world.’

 

Announcing the news, Elton said: “There is no more fitting way to say goodbye to my British fans.

 

“I can’t wait to embrace the spirit of the greatest festival in the world. It’s going to be incredibly emotional.”

 

Elton’s headline Glastonbury slot will now be the final UK date of his farewell tour. The 350-date tour, first announced five years ago, was originally due to conclude in 2021; though multiple postponements throughout the COVID pandemic and a hip injury caused delays.

 

Confirming the news this morning, Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis said: “It gives me enormous pleasure to let you know that the one and only Elton John will be making his first ever Glastonbury appearance, headlining the Pyramid Stage on Sunday night next year.

 

“This will be the final UK show of Elton’s last-ever tour, so we will be closing the Festival and marking this huge moment in both of our histories with the mother of all send-offs.”

Elton added that he ‘couldn’t be more excited’ to play Worthy Farm next year. He explained: “Every week I speak to new artists on my radio show and Glastonbury is often cited as a pivotal moment in launching their careers.

“The festival’s genuine, enthusiastic support for the best emerging talent is something I’ve long admired.”

Kim Kardashian And Kanye West Divorce Settled! Kim Gets $200k A Month In Child Support

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have settled their divorce.

The former husband and wife have resolved both child custody and property-related issues.

According to the settlement, Kim and Kanye will get joint custody with “equal access” to their 4 children. Although the docs say equal access, sources with direct knowledge tell us Kim will have the kids the lion’s share of the time. Even Kanye has acknowledged Kim already has the kids 80% of the time.

TMZ reports that Kanye will pay Kim $200,000 a month in child support and that he’s not footing the full bill for child support — that’s just his share. In addition, he’s responsible for 50% of their kids’ educational expenses, including tuition. He’s also responsible for 50% of their children’s security expenses.

 

Now, this is interesting … if there’s ever a dispute regarding the children, Kim and Kanye agree they will participate in mediation. If one of them fails to participate, the other gets to make the decision in a dispute by default. Not hard to read between the lines.

As for the $200k … it’s due the first day of each month and must be wired into her account.

As for property, the division of assets is in accordance with their prenup. And, according to the prenup, both Kim and Kanye waived spousal support.

Kim filed for divorce in February 2021 after 7 years of marriage. The divorce stalled because Kanye refused to engage, and Kim went to court last March to get an official decree ending the marriage, with both custody and property to be resolved at a later date.

 

The settlement came Monday, on the eve Kanye was scheduled to have his deposition taken in case the matter went to trial next month.

The book is now closed on the marriage of Kim and Kanye.

Nature Muzik, The Most Promising Afrobeats Sensation From Ghana

Nyasunu Bright in real life, but identified musically as Nature in the music scene. Nature is a diversified musical gem, a Ghanaian born on 12th May, 2001. He traces his roots from From kpandai in the Northern Region whiles his fruitful growth and childhood began in Kasoa which is a suburb in the central region of Ghana.

 

In the year 2015, his passion for music rose to a high level of influence when he was gravitated by music by Kwaw kese, Shatta Wale & Sarkodie. This level of influence gave him the urge to pursue music. Time went by, his contribution and passion towards the music business was heavily felt when he was growing up.

The admiration Daddy Lumba & Busta Rhymes also solidified his love for music when growing up. All along he was heavily driven with passion in the creative arts space. Whiles pursuing his high school education at Labone S.H.S, Nature was also an active member in the entertainment board of the school through which he gained some recognition. Nature always performed at entertainment periods and other events in the school. His commitment and love for music grew stronger.

 

Upon completion of high school in the year 2021, all these aggregated influences seriously led him to take up music officially. He then started recording demos, finding his feet and gliding arduously in the music industry.Throughout the journey, he has been making a deliberate effort to spearhead quality music. Nature strongly believes in doing music which can stand the test of time, his versatility enables him to fit into almost all the music genres. His mood sets him to the style of music he does and he is gradually being noted as a huge wind blowing behind Afrobeats & hip-hop music in Ghana.

Gospel Musician, Joseph Matthew Has Shown How Ghana Can Easily Win The World Cup

The world cup is here once again  and the quest for an African team or specifically team Ghana to win this world cup in Qatar is dire than ever.

 

Ghana together with Senegal, Morocco, Tunisia and Cameroon are the nations representing Africa at this year’s World Cup.

It’s extremely disheartening that upon all the legendary footballers like Ghana’s Abedi Pele, Liberia’s current President George Opong-Weah, Ivory Coast’s Didier Drogba and Samuel Eto’o from Cameroon, who are Africans, the continent is yet to win the most prestigious football tournament in the world.

 

The highest stage an African country has ever gotten to is the quarter finals. The first African country to achieve such a feat is Senegal in 2002, followed by Ghana at the 2010 mundial in South Africa.

 

At the 2010 World Cup which was the first to be staged in Africa, Ghana became the closest African team that was inches away from making history as the first to qualify into the semi finals.

 

The Black Stars reached the last-eight stage in what was just their second World Cup campaign, were on the verge of becoming the first African team to reach a World Cup semi-final but the dream was short-lived when Uruguay trashed them in a penalty shoot out.

 

However, the question that football enthusiasts and connoisseurs keep asking is, “Can an African team ever win the World Cup?” Even if it’s a “yes”, “when will that happen?”.

 

Well, once a footballer, UK-based Ghanaian Afro-gospel musician, Joseph Matthew has prophessed that an African team can surely win the World Cup if they adequately prepare.

 

Speaking to hotfmghana.com , the ‘Blessed’ Hitmaker outlined what most african teams, especifically, Ghana’s team, the  ‘Black Stars’, must do in order to win the Cup. He said,

 

“Why not! An African team can win …Ghana Black Stars can surely win …But in Africa, we don’t like to take strides in long-term planning.

A coach would be hired and before the world cup he would be sacked then another coach takes over with a different philosophy and different players… We lack sustainability”, he added.

 

The award-winning Afro-gospel musician stated that another horrendous contrivance hindering our chances of winning the world cup is the interference from our football governing bodies and process of selecting players.

 

The ‘Nyame Ye’ crooner advised that,

“The Ghana football Association must adopt a long-term strategy that would propel the Black Stars to win her first World Cup”.

In this, he asserted that grooming players from the get go till they grow into the national team is ideal to our success.

 

Ever since Joseph Matthew surfaced in the Ghanaian Gospel Music scene in 2019, he has released impressively produced songs such as ‘Nyame Ye’, ‘My Story’ ‘The Name’ and ‘Blessed’

 

‘Blessed’, which was released in May this year, has been heavily tipped by entertainment pundits to win ‘Record of the Year’ award at the 2023 Ghana Music Awards.

 

Have a feel of Joseph Matthew’s “Blessed” from below.
