It looks Justin Beiber has found God as he cancelled the remainder of his ‘Purpose World Tour’, according to Australia’s The Today Show.

Reports coming from Bieber’s camp says that the cancellation was due to ‘unforseen circumstances.’ However, the Australian show reported that the singer may have done so as he seeks to rededicate his life to Christ.

TV presenter Richard Wilkins told The Today Show,  “I am led to believe that the real reason he has come off the road is because he wants to reconnect with his faith and he may be even planning to start his own church.

“We know that he was in the country a few weeks ago having meetings and attending the big Hillsong convention that they had here. [He’s] very close to a lot of the Hillsong people. Whether he’s looking at teaming up with them in something of a more permanent situation or doing some sort of religious activity on his own – starting his own church – we’re not quite sure, but that’s the word from an inside source.”

The Canadian singer and Hillsong pastor, Carl Lentz, have been close for several years now. In 2013, Bieber posted a tweet in recognition of Lentz’s sermon and the effect it had on him.

According to TMZ, the tour’s crew is “incredibly pissed off at him.”

“I’m sorry for anybody who feels disappointed or betrayed,” Bieber later said in a video posted by TMZ.

Scooter Braun, Bieber’s long-time manager, took to Instagram to further quell any anger at the cancellation.

An incredible run. Congrats to @justinbieber on an incredible tour and thank you to the entire cast and crew for your unending support. Chris and Nick thank you. AEG thank you. Caa thank you. UMG thank you. @sb_projects Team thank you. To the promoters who believed around the world thank you. To the fans from all over the world who took part over the last 16 months over 6 continents thank you. To Justin who gave it his all night after night thank you. And to those that won't be able to see it… on behalf of myself, Justin, and the team, we are sorry. That was never our intent. But a man's soul and well being I truly care about came first and We must all respect and honor that. Justin will be back and I know he looks forward to performing for you and with you all again. One chapter ends and another begins. Thank you again. Now please stop commenting on all my other photos that have nothing to do with this just kidding….but I'm not . Jokes aside your support for Justin is inspiring. Cheers.

If the reports are true, what do you think Bieber will call his church? The Church of Bieber? Bieber Ministries?

CEO of Made Men Music Group, Ubi Franklin has been through some tough times. Having pulled through, he shared his story via Instagram on Thursday.

Franklin’s story is inspirational and he chose to share his experience as an encouragement to people who might be going through the same thing.

Franklin talks about how he was totally depressed in his post as well as how his son was the only reason he fought against suicidal thoughts.

“There was money, food, and roof over my head but I was deeply ‘out of order’,” Franklin wrote in his post.

Read his post below:

SATAN WILL TRY TO BREAK YOUR SPIRIT! DON'T ALLOW HIM… PRAY!!!

Boyz II Men have received a special honour from the state of Philadelphia as a street renamed after them in the city where their career began.

Nathan Morris, Wanya Morris & Shawn Stockman, the trio who make up the musical group got the section of Christian to Carpenter streets on Broad Street renamed Boyz II Men Boulvard.

Boyz II Men BLVD. is situated near the Philadelphia High School for The Creative & Performing Arts where the group were once aspiring young musicians.

An excited Stockman said at the unveiling:

This is where it all started. It’s a real honor to know that the city that raised us, the city that practically brought us up musically and otherwise, was gracious and kind enough to give us this honor. I’m proud. It’s a cool thing.

The group also performed alongside students of the school in a special acapella rendition of the group’s “Motownphilly” and “Medley America”.

However, while apologising to the Portuguese fans for failing to clinch yet another trophy, Ronaldo is thankful for the kind gesture he has received from

Read what he posted below:

“I was in the service of the national team, as always, body and soul, even though my two sons were born.

Unfortunately, we have not been able to achieve the main sporting objective that we wanted, but I am sure we will continue to give joy to the Portuguese.

The President of the Portuguese Football Federation and the national picker have today had an attitude that has touched me and I will not forget.

I’m very happy to finally be with my children for the first time.”

Congratulations to him.

Ace comedian Ali Baba has angrily called out Nigerians asking for the pardon of kidnap kingpin Chikwudubem Onwuamadike aka  Evans.

In a lengthy post on his official Instagram page, the comedian addressed the issue of Evans, while also speaking up about some of the social ills of Nigeria.

He wrote:

I said it before, that we got here, where our country now stagnates, as a consequence of what we failed to do, what we allowed and a combination of all we did individually and collectively. But most assuredly, as a result of letting evils in our society go unpunished. Someone goes into government, owning only a bungalow, comes out after a term in office with several properties, serious balances in their domicilary accounts, several cars… yet there is no way, that official’s salaries and allowances can fund all those. And when questions are asked, it’s witch hunting. How much was your paid tax since you are the owner of all these wealth indicators? How did you make the money? Can you imagine some idiots are asking that a confessed kidnapper be freed? We are not talking petty thieves, who steals food to feed his family. Someone who caused families pain. Made the lives of their victims hell. And even got some killed. How do you people sleep at night? I have a friend, a commissioner in Ogun State, whose father in-law was kidnapped, ransom was demanded and paid. Yet, over 5 or 6 years on, the body of the man has not been found. Did you see the robbers in the Zenith bank video that went viral? How can you listen to such heartless criminals and say it’s ok to forgive. How would the family of the police officer take it? Now you know why corruption is fighting back. All those who have survived through lawlessness and illicit businesses, are the ones fighting back on behalf of corruption. Same goes for so-called unknown soldiers. There is a disagreement, next thing a bunch of soldiers will hop on a vehicle raze down a police station, burn down a BRT bus, shoot and maim… And this happens every now and then. Yet no heads roll. That’s why they will do it again. Herdsmen enter someone’s farmland. Trample on planted crops, an on going business concern. Even schools. No consequences. A legislator opens a colleague’s head with a mace. No punishment. Someone kidnaps a sitting governor and brags about it. Nothing happens to him. You embezzle pensions of elders who served Nigeria. And walk free. You burst pipelines. And get Amnesty of 1.3m monthly. What do I know…

Singer 9ice has debunked the claims made by Falz that he promoted fraud in his recent single, “Living Things”.

In an interview with Hip TV,  Falz said it was a shame that some of his colleagues in the music industry were encouraging lifestyles that would endanger the future of youths.

He said:

“You Are An Entertainer, In A Position As A Role Model To Younger Ones Coming Up And In Your Musical Record You Are Greeting All The Yahoo Boys, You Are Greeting All The  Fraudsters , Calling Their Name Personally, Hailing Them, Wire Wire Mo Fe Cha Che, All This Culture You Are Making The Younger Ones Think It’s Cool To Do It, It’s Not, You Are Destroying Our Future. As An Entertainer Sing About Something That Can Help Our Life, Paint A Picture, Tell A Story, Don’t Glorify Fraudulent Behaviour It’s Not Good.”

While Falz got many support his viewpoint, others attacked him for daring to voice out.

However, in response, 9ice has said that he was not in anyway glorifying fraud in the single.

“It’s Not About Promoting Fraud, So To Speak. It’s About One Who Wakes Up In The Morning Needs To Go And Work And Earn A Living. It’s Not Negative, It’s Positive. You Just Have To Be In That Realm To Understand What The Song Is All About.”

With fellow musician Dammy Krane in trouble waters in the US over credit card fraud and grand theft, the issue must really be heated topic among entertainers at the moment.

Little wonder why Falz had to speak up against 9ice using lyrics that appear to glorify the act of internet fraud among youths.

We hope the beef does not go beyond this and both singers can call a truce.

Two decades since rapper Biggie Smalls, aka Notorious B.I.G met his death in a drive-by shooting, an arrest is yet to be made.

Although, police is yet to make any arrest, there are a lot of thoeries as to who and why Biggie was killed in LA in March of 1997.

Biggie, whose real name was Christopher Wallace, is one of hip-hop’s most legendary icons and was in opposition with Tupac Shakur, another of the genre’s icon.

With the LAPD still to make a head way in the case, Voletta Wallace, Biggie’s mother claimed that she and the police both know who’s responsible for her son’s death.

“I have a very good idea who murdered Christopher and I genuinely believe that the LAPD know exactly who did too,” she said to the Daily Mail in March.

“They’ve done their investigation, but they just refuse to move forward. I don’t know why they haven’t arrested who was involved. It seems to me that it’s one giant conspiracy, and someone is definitely being protected somewhere down the line.”

The question now is whether Voletta’s suspicion could be any of the rumoured suspects – Suge Knight or the FBI.

Knight is widely believed to have teamed up with corrupt police officers to murder Biggie as a revenge to the murder of Tupac, who many believe Biggie had something to do with.

On the other hand, the FBI is thought to have masterminded the murders of both Tupac and Biggie as a means to ending the violence that came with hip-hop music.

With each passing year, many fans are resolved to the fact that Biggie’s murder case will go down in history as another unsolved police case.

Young Tunisian women are now undergoing surgery to have their virginity restored as the country’s law stipulates that women remain virgins till marriage.
According to BBC, the young women have turned to hymenoplasty, a short procedure that promises to reconstruct her virginity surgically.
The surgery involves having the hymen reconstructed to avoid being sent back to their parents after the wedding.
 The young women save and spend as much as $400 for the procedure to prevent future shame.
“I consider this to be deception and I’m really worried,” says Jasmine whose wedding is in two months.
28-year old Jasmine decided to turn to science to regain her lost virginity as she fears her husband will find out she is not a virgin after they get married.
Yasmine lost her virginity while living abroad to one man, and though she has agreed to the surgery, she feels bad about the whole process.
She said it took her months to save for the procedure while keeping every detail secret from her family.
BBC reporter Sihem Hassaini was shocked to discover a bunch of other women waiting for the 30-minute procedure to reconstruct their hymen when he accompanied Jasmine to the clinic.
According to Rashid, the doctor to carry out the surgeries, most of his young patients are driven by the fear of bringing shame to their family and relatives when discovered they are not virgins.
Although many doctors refuse to do the surgery, Rashid said he does it because he disagrees with those who make virginity a sort of sacred thing.
The annoyed doctor said he blamed the male-dominated society that hides in some religious principles.

“I mean it when I say its male dominance and I’ll continue to wage an all-out war against it,” he says.

In spite of Tunisia being regarded as a leader in women’s rights in North Africa, religion and tradition dictates that young women remain virgins until marriage.
The law also provides for divorce in cases where women are discovered not to be virgins after marriage.

The first French Beard Championship held over the weekend, with men sporting hipster moustaches and Verdi beards in competition.

The competition took place in Paris where 30 finalists in five categories faced off against each other for the best beard.

A grand jury then put the finalists forward and had them parade on a catwalk. Their beards were then judged by a jury made up of five people.
Richard Palatchi won the audacious beard category, beating three other men in a free-style facial hair category.
He said the only preparation he made was to get a quick trim at a barber shop on Saturday morning, and that he has been growing his beard out for three and a half years.
Julien Voeltzel won in the natural and over 20cm-long beard category, while Javor Mujicic won the Garibaldi beard category.
Denis Pierre Cariou was crowned the Best in Show category, while Yohann Caton won the Verdi Beard category.
The Beard Championship was attended by 200 spectators and organisers have hinted at expanding the competition next year.

See the video below:
