Comedian Katt Williams comes hard on Kevin Hart

Kevin Hart is a box office/comedy king so the hate is expected from his colleagues who have been there longer and not as relevant. Comedian Katt Williams read Kevin Hart for filth at a show in Atlanta...kinda saying Kevin is successful because he compromised. Yeah, right Katt!

In video that surfaced on SnapChat Katt says,

“I’ve already proven that if the best they got in comedy is Kevin Hart then...[No] don’t boo a black man working hard, baby. Even if that n****’s a puppet, it’s not his fault. We don’t get mad. Just because I’m better than some black dudes doesn’t mean I’m better than no black dudes. I’m saying if you want to be mad at Kermit The Frog, don’t be mad at Kermit The Frog. Be mad at Jim Henson. Don’t say, ‘F*ck Donald Duck” when you really mean, ‘F*ck Walt Disney.’
“I don’t care nothing that happens to Kevin [Hart], I just wish him the best. I just know that that’s somebody’s hand stuck up that baby, you understand. Oh, we’re a puppet show, boo boo. Please believe it. You’re looking at the only n**** that ain’t.”
“So, since I’ve already officially proven to myself that I really am who Richard Pryor passed his torch to, and that I was able to do it without letting a man s**k my d**k, or s**king a man’s d**k. I walked in with a virgin a**h**e, I walked out with a virgin a**h**e. I got the same soul today that I had when I did Pimp Chronicles all the way to the end of Pimp Chronicles.”

Chelsea will not sell John Mikel Obi - Mikel's Rep says

Chelsea will not sell John Mikel Obi this summer according to his representative, as rumours continue to circulate that the London club will offload the Nigerian midfielder along side Oscar, Hazard and Remy, to generate funds for the purchase of Paul Pogba from Juventus.

Pogba, arguably the best midfielder in the world right now, has been linked with moves to Real Madrid, Barcelona and Man City but Chelsea feel they could lure him to Stamford Bridge...

...hence reports Mikel could be offloaded with one year left on his current contract but his representative has reportedly dismissed the idea.
“If Chelsea have plans to sell him, they will not offer him a new contract. It is normal paper talk and not true,”Mikel’s representative said to Vanguard. “Mikel remains a player of Chelsea and wants to finish up the season before weighing his options.

Ijaw youths allege FG plans to arrest Goodluck Jonathan

The Ijaw Youths Council IYC over the weekend alleged that the there were plans by the Federal government to arrest former President Jonathan.

Speaking to Journalists at the funeral of former Bayelsa state governor, Dipreye Alamiyeseigha, the president of IYC, Udengs Eradiri, said the recent arrest of Jonathan's nephew, Robert Azibola, by the anti-graft agency EFCC, shows the Federal Government was gradually closing in on the former President. Eraditi said the Ijaw youths have vowed to resist any attempt to arrest or prosecute Jonathan

"They have arrested almost all our people. Azibola was arrested by the EFCC and we are calling on the EFCC to stop persecuting him further and charge him to court if there are issues. They detained him for a long time forcing him to make statements to indict former President Jonathan. Azibola was a businessman, contractor and has the right like every Nigerian to get contracts. Why will the Niger Delta case be a different one? We noticed that the same way they persecuted Alamieyeseigha, they want to continue with Jonathan. Our people who contributed in that administration are being persecuted by this government. The recent one is the ploy to arrest Jonathan which is unfolding every day. This must stop. Jonathan was the most performing president that Nigeria has ever had. We are proud of him. Every day, there is a calculated attempt to whittle down the achievements of Jonathan. We call on Nigerians to mount pressure on the government to focus on leading Nigeria right rather than looking for ways to bring down the achievements of Jonathan. Buhari should please focus on governance rather than persecution of people who have added value”he said

Leicester City qualify for the Champions League for the first time in history

Leicester City has secured a historic Champions League spot after beating Sunderland 0-2 yesterday. This is the first time 'The Foxes' as they are fondly called have qualified for the UEFA Champions League in the history of the club and with 6 games to go are on course to win the English Premier League title..

The victory at the Stadium of Light took Claudio Ranieri's men onto 72 points, and with United losing at White Hart Lane the Foxes cannot now finish any lower than fourth in the Premier League -- which books a place in the final qualifying round.

The Foxes have enjoyed a remarkable campaign, turning themselves from relegation candidates to title favourites and opening up a 10-point lead at the top of the Premier League table.
Leicester City began this season with a transfer budget of £15 million compared to Arsenal's £50m, Chelsea's £75m and Man U's £101m.
Congrats to them!

Photos: Justin Gatlin breaks Usain Bolt's 100m record at 9.48seconds but it won't count

Usain Bolt is officially the world's fastest man at 9.58 seconds for 100m but his record was broken yesterday by American athlete Justin Gatlin at 9.45 seconds. Unfortunately for Justin, the feat won't count because it was at a Japanese TV Show rather than an IAAF organized event/competition. Usain Bolt's record was set at Berlin World Championships in 2009 and hasn't been broken since then, but Gatlin is expected to be Bolt's major rival at this year's Rio Olympics.
