Papa Wemba: Was he killed or this is just another conspiracy theory?

Posted in NEWS with tags , , , , , , , , on April 28, 2016 by Ngoran Guilio-Erasmo de la Vega

The mortal remains of one of Africa’s greatest music icon, Papa Wemba, 65 was welcomed today April 29, 2016 by hundreds of mourners in his native country, Democratic Republic of Congo–from Abidjan-Ivory Coast, where he died.

But as burial arrangements are being made by his family, the question everyone is asking is: Was he killed? If yes, who killed him?

Papa Wemba

Papa Wemba: The African King of Rumba who fell never to rise again

Well, we shouldn’t have been here in the first place, if someone on social media(Facebook to be precise) had not put his Sherlock Holmes prowess to for us to review, publishing the singer’s last minutes during what became his last stage performance.

In the video during the FEMUA urban music festival on Sunday, 24 April 2016, there is man (boy) who comes up on stage from behind the curtains, the swap the microphone of the Singer, and few minutes later, Papa Wemba would fall never to rise up again.

The questions no one is asking, are:

  • Who is that man?
  • What was he doing behind the curtains?
  • Did he poison (jinx) that microphone?

So, was that microphone-switcher a scape-goat, finding himself at the right place at the wrong time at the cold-bloodedness of conspiracy theorists? Well, truth of the matter is, we might never know the answers to these questions. At least, not now. But if indeed there is an iota of smoke in this fire, we are gonna find out the same way, the mic-switcher was spotted.

Samuel Eto’o backs controversy-stricken Serge Aurier

Posted in NEWS with tags , , , , , , on February 22, 2016 by Ngoran Guilio-Erasmo de la Vega

Cameroon’s football legend Samuel Eto’o has join the team of elite footballers to defend under-fire Ivorian and Paris St Germain right-back Serge Aurier after his ‘homophobic comments’ on Periscope against coach Laurent Blanc, and his jibe against teammates Angel Di Maria and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The Antalyspor captain and four time African player of the year gave his take on the issue at 2pm GMT on his facebook page that read:

“Mistakes are human. Beyond mistakes, the most important things are the lessons we learn from them. Isn’t it said that a fault confessed is half redressed? Keep your head up young brother Serge Aurier and look behind only if it helps you move forward. #AllonsSeulement #Aurier19 #WeLiveAndWeLearn ‘’.

The controversial Ivorian defender in the original message on periscope before their Champions League match with Chelsea also involve calling Angel Di Maria a ‘clown’ and, a supposed  ‘favoritism’ towards fellow teammate Zlatan Ibrahimović.

Aurier in a PSG TV interview apologized for his comments saying: “I made a big mistake, I am here to say sorry to the coach, the club and my team-mates, and to the supporters because they are the most important people. I want to apologise especially to the coach, I can only thank him for all he has done for me since I arrived in Paris.

“He wanted me and since I came here everything has gone really well. I owe him a lot and that is why I apologise sincerely to him for what was said, which I deeply regret.

“I will accept any sanction the club impose on me regarding this incident. I made a mistake, it was unforgivable and I am ready to face all the consequences.”

It is not the first time Aurier has been in trouble over comments made on social media. He was banned for three games by Uefa after last season’s Champions League game against Chelsea, after a video posted on Facebook showed him labelling the referee Bjorn Kuipers a “dirty son of a bitch” over the dismissal of Ibrahimovic.

His team Paris St Germain reacted swiftly with an indefinite suspension on the defender. The club’s president Al-Khelaifi said:

“I took the decision to dismiss Serge Aurier. Paris Saint-Germain is a very strong institution which nobody can touch.

“This video, filmed in a private setting, clearly contains unacceptable comments about team-mates and especially coach Laurent Blanc.

“PSG wishes to express its fullest support to coach Blanc and to to the players who have rightly felt offended by Aurier’s remarks.”

Samuel Eto’o is not the only player to stand behind Aurier. He joins Zinedine Zidane, Didier Drogba, Karim Benzema and the Touré brothers; Yaya and Kolo.
