As reported by Sina, a Chinese news outlet,  The country’s top media regulator — The State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television of the People’s Republic of China (SAPPRFT) has now required specifically that actors who have tatoos or depict hip hop culture, sub-culture (non-mainstream culture) and dispirited culture (decadent culture), should not be featured in programs.

Gao Changli, director of the administration’s publicity department, outlined four “Don’t” rules on Friday:

Absolutely do not use actors whose heart and morality are not aligned with the party and whose morality is not noble
Absolutely do not use actors who are tasteless, vulgar and obscene
Absolutely do not use actors whose ideological level is low and have no class
Absolutely do not use actors with stains, scandals and problematic moral integrity

The ban is said to follow the removal of the prominent rapper GAI from ‘Hunan TV’s Singer’, a hit competition show. Clips of GAI, whose real name is Zhou Yan, were also removed from China Hunan TV’s official Youtube Channel. Music by Triple H, an influential underground rapper, has also been removed from major streaming sites, a contestant on the show Super Brian, which is not hip-hop related, even had his hip-hop style necklace blurred out,, another well-known rapper, Wang Hao, aka PG One was forced to apologize earlier this month after one of his songs, “Christmas Eve,” was criticized for promoting drug culture and insulting women. Also. Chinese rapper Mao Yanqi, aka VaVa, was cut from the variety show Happy Camp, according to Tecent News.

The recent ban doesn’t seem to go be generally accepted by the Chinese social media, as some angrily responded;

“SARPPFT is so trashy! They didn’t want to give Chinese hip pop singers any chance of survival! we can go back to ancient times,” wrote one user on Weibo — China’s equivalent of Twitter.

“How can a government with high culture have such childish logic?” asked another.

Don’t Ignore People With Suicidal thoughts.

Its not news that suicide cases has become very rampant in modern times, people, Africans especially easily overlook it when people show signs of depression, and certain changes in actions and dispositions, signs of dejection and the likes. Parents, spouses, and friends, have a huge role to play in caring for loved ones whom they know are going through some imbalanced psychological phase in their lives. It is also good to note that prevention is always better than cure, so, if we understand cases that can lead to this act, we can find a way hinder it, by avoiding getting to put people in such tight situations, that give them that feeling that makes them to consider giving up in general. Here are a list of things that can lead people to committing suicide;

  1. FEELING OF BEING CAGED OR IN A BOX: A person can feel caged in many aspects, this is a feeling that you are stuck in an unhappy place, you have weighed every option and realized that there is no way you can help yourself out of that situation, you feel stuck, and unloved enough by anyone, you think of a way out, and you can’t come up with any other option than leaving the worldcompletely. The feeling of being trapped comes in different forms, and could be caused by different factors and people. For instance,aids and children who are completely restricted, not cared for, and not handles well, regularly insulted or beaten, and not listened to is mlbery likely to be suicidal. This affects the children more than the maid because the maid can easily run away, going back to where he/she came from, but a child has no where to run to, hence having suicidal These and many other factors can make someone feel trapped. So, please parents, and older or younger siblings should be watchful of sudden or not so sudden change in their child’s attitude. You should also make the environment as conducive as possible for you child
  2. PHYSICAL/SEXUAL ABUSE: When you are in a privileged position over someone, whom you know is dependent on you, and you use that opportunity to physically, mentally, or emotionally abuse. Take the alternative of communicating with your children, counsel and advice most times. When a child is beaten all the time, and and brought down regularly, or made to feel like she/he is no good, then he begins to feel unloved and look for other alternatives, when he can’t get one he/she begins to consider ending life completely. Also victims of sexual abuse begin to feel that they have no usefulness in life, they feel used and worthless, so, they contemplate suicide.
  3. CHRONIC PHYSICAL ILLNESS/PHYSICAL PAIN & INCARCERATION: We all should understand how important it is to be in good health. however, in some certain circumstances, some people might not be physically sound, and might lose good health for a long period of time, which affects them psychologically, that they might begin to feel useless of feel like they are suffering too much, and contemplate suicide. People who have been diagnosed with certain chronic and incurable illnesses like HIV/AIDS, certain kinds of cancer, that required loss if body parts, Ebola, some conditions that has left them in chronic and constant pains, which they find unbearable, like rheumatism among others, may begin to have suicidal thoughts, because they might not be able to bear this realization, and come to terms with some certain conditions. these people need reassurance from friends family an d loved ones, that they are not a liability, and they are not alone in their health struggle, and that you would join them in the fight. this reassurance make them believe that there is hope and definitely they would want to survive rather then giving up. people who are imprisoned also get the suicide urge, because they crave the freedom that is being enjoyed by every other person, they feel like they are not living as well as they would want, and they begin to have suicide thoughts.

Some signs are exhibited by suicidal people include; low sense of humour, inability to communicate or interact normally, as they tend to avoid discussions sometimes. Being lost in thought regularly, being a loner, aggressive traits, loss of appetite, loss of interest in things happening in the environment, visiting or calling people to put things in order,Clinical depression — deep sadness, loss of interest, trouble sleeping and eating — that gets worse, having a “death wish,” tempting fate by taking risks that could lead to death, such as driving fast or running red lights, losing interest in things one used to care about, making comments about being hopeless, helpless, or worthless

People who have suicidal thoughts need friends an family who truly love them to comfort them, make them feel loved and understood. Never be forceful with them as that would worsen the situation. Encourage them, tell them that they have you, and explain to them that they are not alone and would overcome every situation. They need the support of loved ones. Most of them believe that no one would miss them, and this is because no one has really been emotionally there for them, so reassuring them of how much you care by holding their hands and reminding them that they aren’t alone is the least you can do to stop them from going ahead with it.

Image result for churchill sues tonto, stops reality show from airingImage result for churchill sues tonto, stops reality show from airing

The drama between Tonto Dike and her ex-husband Olakunle Oladunni Churchill has not ended, as Churchill has filed a court case stopping her from airing her reality show- King Tonto, which featured herself and her baby King Andrea, which showcases their life, walks and works since the fall of her marriage . It was produced by Linda Ikeji media limited. The court has rules in favour of Churchill, who claimed that the child was too young to concede to being part of the show, and that he was being used solely for monetary gain. View the court statement below.insidelagostv-1516115765865Image result for churchill sues tonto, stops reality show from airingImage result for churchill sues tonto, stops reality show from airingImage result for churchill sues tonto, stops reality show from airing

Churchill claims that this is the first step to be taken by towards protecting his son’s rights as captured under the Child Rights Law of Lagos State.  Mr Churchill is of the opinion that featuring King in such a production is solely to exploit his son for financial gain, expose the life and times of the little boy at a period when he cannot make a decision for himself.

Tonto Dikeh who had last year aired a reality show of how she underwent surgery to enhance her body shape, seems not to be moved by the actions of Churchill, as nothing seems to be stopping Tonto from going ahead with the campaign for the show.

The actress in an indirect response to all who have been asking what would happen now since her baby daddy is bent on stopping the show, posted the one minute campaign video on her page telling the fans to watch out.

 

Mercy Aigbe responds to aggrieved brides threat to sue, by also threatening to sue..(Red Dress Saga)

This red dress issue has been making headlines barely a month into 2018, Mercy Aigbe has threatened to sue the bride Lawrentta Adesuwa Sawyer, with instagram name  @retypetty, the celebrity did this in reaction to the brides earlier threat to file a law case against the designer. whose instagram handle is @rikaotobyme and the media mersonality and actress @mercyaigbe, the bride had accused the designer and actress of conniving, as the brides lawyer had made public a letter, threatening to sue rikaotobyme and Mercy Aigbe.

The Nollywood actress didn’t seem to find this funny, as she responded  to the threat and took to her instagram page

She wrote;

“The lingering ‘Red Dress’ issue continued this morning as the bride threatened to sue the designer Rikaotobyme and also falsely accused me of connivance with the said designer …..( without substantial proof or evidence )
Having served Rikaotobyme a letter tru my lawyer on Jan 8 to issue an official statement on the above subject matter with clear indications that I have never met her before or transacted business with her which she failed to do, I have instructed my lawyer to go ahead and seek redress.

For the bride, in as much as I sympathize with her, I take exception to her accusing me falsely and trying to cast aspersions on my person.
I have given the bride tru her lawyers 7 days to retract the statement that read thus; ‘the sequence detailed above has evidenced a deliberate and fraudulent conspiracy between the designer and Ms Mercy Aigbe to convert our client’s legal property for selfish gains’. This is a malicious allegation. Whao, where is the legal property I want to convert. What a statement. I hereby demand a retraction and public apology, failure to do so I will have no option than to seek redress in the law court by suing her ( the bride) and the designer for false accusation and trying to defame my person…….😇😇😇”
