Frank Ocean and Alicia Keys were recently in the news; the latter for being in a recording studio brawl with Chris Brown and Keys for becoming Blackberry’s new Global Creative Director. They both have been added to perform on music’s biggest night at the 2013 Grammy Awards.

Airing February 10th on CBS, the Grammys also announced that Maroon 5 will be hitting the stage.

The 55th Annual award show will be hosted once again by rapper LL Cool J. Other performers at the awards include Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Fun, and new comer Ed Sheeran.

It will be interesting to watch Frank Ocean, who is nominated for six Grammy awards, up against the same guy he fought with last Sunday, Chris Brown. Well, I guess Ocean’s the happier of the two; he’s not the one with a hand in cast.

Nigerian award winning singer, Yemi Alade, has advised her colleagues to save instead of spending recklessly. The ‘Johnny’ crooner took to her Twitter page on Sunday to share her advice.

She said that people would rather hide the fact that savings is important which is similar to A students who don’t read publicly but still ace their exams.

In her words:

“Nobody talks about saving or investments in this industry! Same way some friends in school never spoke about reading reading but always got an A! #Dothemaths #Save Now!”
