Here’s everything you missed in entertainment over the weekend and others that unravelled while you slept – and are still buzzing today.
Olamide declares support for Ambode
The Nigerian rapper has declared his support for the second term bid of Lagos Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode.
The All Progressive Congress’ (APC) governorship primaries on Monday, October 1, 2018 (today) and so much has happened these past weeks and especially this past weekend.
Olamide wrote on Instagram, “Four more my Daddy ☠️ @akinwunmiambode“.
Kanye West delivers a pro-Trump rant on SNL
West, performed three songs on SNL, including a new song, “We Got Love” and later started talking to the audience (according to what was outlined by People), “I wanna cry right now. Black man in America, you’re supposed to keep what you feel inside right now. And the liberals bully you and tell you what you can and cannot wear, where you and they can’t stare. And they look at me and say, ‘It’s not fair. How the hell did you get here?’ Well…”
He then delivered an unexpected speech in front of SNL performers like Colin Jost and host Adam Driver.
“Actually, blacks weren’t always Democrats,” he started. “It’s like a plan they did to take the fathers out the homes and promote welfare. Does anybody know about that? That’s the Democratic plan.”
He warned that people can’t be controlled by “monolithic thought” and mentioned disgraced comedian Bill Cosby. “You can’t always have when you have a black subject matter like Cosby that you have to have a black comedian talk about it,” he said.
He also brought up Donald Trump. “It’s so many times that I talk to a white person about this, and they say, ‘How could you support Trump? He’s racist.’ Well if I was concerned about racism, I would have moved out of America a long time ago. We don’t just make our decisions off of racism. I’ma break it down to you right now: If someone inspires me and I connect with them, I don’t have to believe in all they policies.”
Of course, Trump responded:
“Like many, I don’t watch Saturday Night Live (even though I past hosted it) – no longer funny, no talent or charm. It is just a political ad for the Dems. Word is that Kanye West, who put on a MAGA hat after the show (despite being told “no”), was great. He’s leading the charge!”

This Breast Cancer Awareness Month I’ve recorded a version of The Divinyls global hit “I Touch Myself” to remind women to self-check regularly. _ Yes, this put me out of my comfort zone, but I wanted to do it because it’s an issue that affects all women of all colors, all around the world. Early detection is key – it saves so many lives. I just hope this helps to remind women of that. _ The music video is part of the I Touch Myself Project which was created in honor of celebrated diva, Chrissy Amphlett, who passed away from breast cancer, and who gave us her hit song to remind women to put their health first. The project is proudly supported by @BerleiAus for Breast Cancer Network Australia. _ Visit the link in my bio to find out more. #ITouchMyselfProject #BerleiAus #BCNA #DoItForYourself
