The past week has been a very busy one. Every single day came with its own brand of drama – from Chester Bennington’s death to RKelly’s sex cult, and the Lagos Mainland flooding. We have summarized them all. Enjoy and share
Chester Bennington’s Death
Chester Bennington, American singer, songwriter and Front man for the rock band Linkin Park died on the 20th of July 2017, aged 41. He was said to have battled depression for a long time, leading to his suicide at his Palos Verdes residence in California. He is survived by his wife, and six children.

Lagos Local Government Elections
On Saturday, Lagos State conducted her chairmanship elections in all of its 20 recognized local government areas. Even though there was a heavy downpour, it didn’t stop the election from taking place.
As at press time, APC had won in 14 Local Governments.
The other week it was sorry tales of flooding homes and roads from our friends in Lekki and other parts of the Island. This week, it was the turn of our folks on the mainland to suffer the floods. Major victims of the heavy rains include Surulere, Ikeja and so on. See tweets and reactions.
Some people even turned it into an Island – Mainland flood comparison
The guys at Vision Scape Group came through for Surulere. They cleared the mess.
Gov Ayodele Fayose was all smiles as he attended his son’s convocation from the Covenant University Ota last week. Whether you like him or not, you must admit that in a nation where leaders send their children to better Universities abroad, his sending his son to a university in Nigeria is worth emulating. We wish his son and other graduates well.

Based on his son's graduation from a NIGERIAN university, Fayose has beaten many Nigerian politicians, ESPECIALLY Buhari, hands down.
Carl Ikeme, Nigerian and Wolvehampton football club goalkeeper, has refused to let the Leukemia get to him. He was all-smiles in his social media post, where he has decided to remain hopeful and grateful. We wish him a speedy recovery.

In other news Manchester United seems prepared to compete for the EPL title this season as they trounced their noisy neighbors, Man City 2 – 0 in a pre-season match. Goals by Lukaku and Rashford sealed the win for the reds.
On the other hand, Arsenal was completely dominated by Chelsea, as the Blues trounced them three goals to zero in their pre-season friendly. Goals were by Willian and Michy Batshuayi who scored a brace as the champions coasted to victory. As expected, the #WengerOut chants have already re-begun. Sorry gunners.
Kevin Hart cheating, Usher’s Herpes and R-Kelly’s sex cult
Sensational news about celebrities always spread like wild fire, and last week diminutive comedian – Kevin Hart, Pop/R&B artists – Usher and Rkelly were material for heavy discussion. While Usher is reported to have infected a lady with herpes and paid her off to keep her silent, R-Kelly is being faced with allegations of having a sex cult involving teenage girls. Kevin Hart was also reportedly caught cheating on his pregnant wife with the same woman he cheated on his ex-wife with. What a story line.
