Kimye To Wed In France, Party In Italy

Published

Hip hop star Kanye West and reality TV celebrity Kim Kardashian are to marry in a chateau near Paris next Saturday, Italian media reported, before heading to Florence where their party plans have raised some eyebrows.

Some 1 600 guests have been invited to the Chateau d’Usse, a Renaissance dwelling southwest of Paris, for the 24 May wedding ceremony, Florence newspaper la Nazione reported.

From there the celebrity pair and their guests will head to the Italian city, where they have rented the Forte Belvedere – a 16th-century fortress – for their wedding party.

Earlier reports had said the pair would wed in Florence.

A spokesperson for Florence city hall said this week the rental for the fortress built by the Medici family and now used as an exhibitions venue – a reported $411 000 – would go to funding city projects.

But some locals are unhappy about the couple’s takeover of one of Florence’s most beautiful monuments.

Passions were further inflamed by the renting-out of the Cappellone degli Spagnoli, a chapel with 14th-century frescoes, for a dinner for JP Morgan bank.

Achille Totaro, an opposition candidate in upcoming local elections, said it amounted to “a sell-off of Florence’s monuments”, while the anti-establishment Five Star Movement called for “greater respect for our city’s treasures”.

#LekkiMassacre: CNN Dares Nigeria Government, Updates Second Report (Video)

Published

on

The Cable News Network, CNN seems not done with the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government with the television channel releasing another report on the shooting at the Lekki toll gate during the End SARS protests.

Recall that the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, called out CNN over its report on the incident.

He added that CNN was biased in its report and needs to be sanctioned.

The Minister also addressed a letter to the management of CNN in Atlanta.

The network, however, on Tuesday released the second report with more damning footage showing soldiers shooting at unarmed protesters on October 20, 2020.

The second report also shows the Commander, 81 Division, Brig.Gen Ahmed Taiwo, admitting before the judicial panel in Lagos that military men had live ammunition in their weapons while at the tollgate.

CNN also noted that the statement of Brig.Gen Taiwo contradicts that of the Minister who had claimed last week that the army fired blank bullets.

It was also revealed in the new report, the moment when protesters were running as soldiers open fire at the tollgate.
