Famous rapper and producer Dr. Dre who is currently hospitalized due to Aneurysm has been slammed by his wife, Nicole Young for allegedly holding a gun to her head on two occasions during their 25year old marriage.
Nicole filed for divorce from the Beats Co-founder, Andre, and the legal documents detailed her long abusive ordeal in the hands of her soon-to-be ex-husband.
“I have explained in excruciating and painful detail the abuse that Andre has perpetrated against me over our more than 25-year relationship. Andre has held a gun to my head on two occasions, on January 8, 2020, and November 20, 2001; Andre has punched me in the head/face on two occasions, in 1999 and on January 8, 2000; Andre kicked down the door to a bedroom in which I was hiding from his rage in 2016; Andre has verbally and emotionally decimated my personhood to the extent that I currently suffer post-traumatic stress syndrome,” – legal documents filed on Jan. 5, which were obtained by the Daily Mail in an article published on Wednesday (Jan. 13) narrated.
The documents also confirm the producer claims that law enforcement was never called during the couple’s lengthy marriage.
Rema, featuring Selena Gomez’s “Calm Down,” takes over New York City’s Airwave
A few days ago, while doing strength training at my YMCA gym in Cross Island, New York, I had my earbuds and listened to music. This allowed me to block out the noise of people dropping dumbbells. However, a friend approached me on this particular day, and I decided to pause my music. As we chatted, I heard “Baby Calm,” a song by Rema/Selena Gomez, blasting from the nearby dance studio.
Curious about the commotion coming from the studio, I walked closer and discovered a group of grandmothers gracefully dancing to this song. It surprised me that teenagers were not the only ones attending this dance class. The fact that a significant part of the song was sung in Yoruba (a Nigerian dialect) reinforced the belief that music is a universal language. Music transcends age, religion, gender, and hate. Witnessing these moms embrace music from my country filled me with joy as someone who has contributed to Nigeria’s dance music scene.
It is heartwarming to see that Rema – born Divine Ikubor in Benin City – has taken over New York City’s airwaves with his song. The people living in this incredible city have found solace through his music. Radio DJs on KTU, Z100, 105.1 (Hip-Pop), and many other mainstream channels are enamored with “Baby Calm.” It plays almost every 10 minutes or even more frequently than that. Nigerian music has become an essential part of any party playlist in the Big Apple.
Back in 2009, when I ran The Nigerian FM, I frequently played Nigerian music, and listeners often asked where they could purchase it. The works of artists like Burna Boy, P-Square, and Techno stood out at that time. The reason why some of the best Nigerian music hasn’t made it to mainstream radio stations in the US is a story for another day. I will dedicate another piece since this write-up focuses on Rema’s success.
Rema’s collaboration with Selena Gomez on “Calm Down” was wise. Selena Gomez, a globally beloved figure with over 400 million Instagram followers, humbly thanked Rema for featuring her in his hit song on her social media platform.
Had Rema collaborated with other superstars, especially those in the hip-hop genre who have half of Selena Gomez’s following, they would have tried to overshadow his rise to stardom. They would want credit for his success and attempt to outshine him if he received awards. Whoever orchestrated this collaboration that propelled “Calm Down” by Rema is worthy of praise. I also take this opportunity to thank Selena Gomez for being an incredible individual and acknowledging how this collaboration has impacted her life.
I am aware of the rumor circulating about Selena now dating Rema. However, it’s important to note that simply kissing or hugging does not automatically mean they are a couple. If they are in a relationship, it is their personal affair and should be respected.
To be continued…
In my next part, I will delve into the song itself and highlight the lessons established and upcoming artists can learn from it.

WWE Sham Wrestlemania in Hollywood-MaZiyke
These days, the world wrestling entertainment, WWE, will never cease to amaze me with its productions. It may be that their creative department needs a complete overhaul, or the entire company has hit a dead end.
In the past, I usually left everything I was doing to watch Smackdown, Monday night raw, and NXT. However, I now put my system in recording mode to fast forward my viewing pleasure away from what I see as rubbish.
i can not imagine sitting down to watch a son slap and beat up his father, all in the name of promoting a fight at Wrestlemania. Setting Rey Mysterio against his son, Dominik Mystereo, is just the height of sporting lunacy. What is WWE teaching millions of kids who watch their show? Congress needs to do something about some of the fights WWE promotes.
At the main event of Wrestling Mania, I was not shocked when Omos lost to Brock Lesner. It was written to happen that way. On a good day, Brock Lesner is a no mouth to the Nigerian giant called OMOS. But, gradually, WWE is wasting OMOS, the way they wasted Mark Anthony and many other Black WWE supporters who spent years with them and have nothing to show.
Finally, what happened to Roman Reigns and Cody Rhodes is shameful. It was a broad-day robbery. How could they allow any form of interference during such a match-up? So many people wanted to see a good match between the two. What happened at the Sofia Stadium, Hoolywood is a sham.
To make matters worse, during Monday night raw after Wrestlemania, the attack on Cody Rhodes, which WWE planned, was like adding salt to an injury. I have made up my mind never to watch any WWE live event. WWE is losing it.

Rihanna’s displays her baby bump.
For so many years, millions of her fans scattered worldwide asked if she had stopped playing music. She’s been AWOL from the music scene. Finally, everyone got the answer.
The “Diamonds” singer and fashion mogul, 33, is pregnant, expecting her first baby with rapper A$AP Rocky.
The couple was photographed out in New York City over the weekend, where Rihanna debuted her baby bump while wearing a long pink jacket. Her oversized outerwear was unbuttoned at the bottom to reveal her growing bump adorned in a gold cross with colorful jewels.
In one of the sweet photos, which were snapped in Harlem, where A$AP Rocky grew up, the rapper kisses the soon-to-be mom on her forehead as they enjoy a snowy walk outdoors.
R.Kelly found guilty on all charges: A sad day for the music industry.
He gave the world some of the greatest music hits; Robert Kelly, better known as R.Kelly, was at one time, the undisputed King of R/B. I watched him at the Brooklyn Federal court dressed in a yellow jumpsuit, dumbfounded as the judge announced that the jury had found him guilty on all Charges.
This literary means, R.Kelly will face decades in prison, and the creative genius may not have the opportunity to give the world and his fans a new song again. I will bring you a detailed write-up on how I feel about this whole R.Kelly case.
