The absence of Nigerian singer and songwriter Oluwatobiloba Anidugbe, better known by his stage name Kizz Daniel, at the opening ceremony of the FIFA Qatar 2022 World Cup on Sunday has been explained.

There was confusion over the singer’s performance at the FIFA Qatar 2022 World Cup.

Fans who thought the singer was supposed to perform at the opening ceremony on Sunday alongside fellow Nigerian artist CKay became worried when he did not show up on stage.

However, the ‘Buga’ star, who confirmed he would perform at the event, stated that he was billed to perform on the 23rd of November and not the 20th, as speculated.

Kizz Daniel had, in a post on his Instagram page on Friday, 11th of November, confirmed that he would perform at the World Cup in Qatar.

He wrote: “This one is for Africa. This one is for Vado nation. See you in Qatar World Cup on 23/11/2022.”

Meanwhile, those who thought that the singer was supposed to perform at the opening ceremony stormed social media to express concern over his and other Nigerian artists’ absence at the event.

JulioKitoko wrote: “But Davido, Kizz Daniel & Co supposed to perform for the World Cup opening ceremony. Why are they not there.”

Ajoke wrote: “I thought Kizz Daniel said he would be performing at the World Cup?”

FaiBoris added: “I did not see. Kizz Daniel or Davido at the World Cup opening ceremony. After all the hype from Nigerians and me in particular, looking forward for him to ginger and Buga the crowd. What went wrong? Did lack of electricity stop Nigerians from not being updated in time?”

Fans Sympathize With R. Kelly After YouTube Removed His Channels 5

Fans have sympathized greatly with disgraced singer, R. Kelly following YouTube’sban of his official channels.

There have been arguments that Harvey Weinstein’s films are still shown, so Kelly’s channels should remain. As much as fans believe R. Kelly to be guilty of the allegations against him, they have argued that they won’t stop listening to his music, but also can’t find his catalog on his verified YouTube accounts.

In 2019, Sony Music’s RCA Records ended its longstanding relationship with Kelly amid sex trafficking and sex crimes allegations, but fans can still find his music on DSPs.

YouTube’s decision has definitely sent shockwaves down the spines of his fans and there are definately going to be getting more complaints.

You will recall that a spokesperson for YouTube said: We can confirm that we have terminated two channels linked to R. Kelly in accordance with our creator responsibility guidelines.

YouTube’s creator responsibility guidelines state that the company might remove a user for on- and/or off-platform behavior that we may consider to be inappropriate.

The guidelines continue by saying that a user can be penalized for participating in abuse or violence, demonstrating cruelty, or participating in fraudulent/deceptive behavior leading to real-world harm.

Fans Sympathize With R. Kelly After YouTube Removed His Channels 6

The two channels in question are R. Kelly TV and R. Kelly Vevo, both of which now display messages letting users know that the accounts have been terminated.

Nicole Alston, YouTube’s head of legal, said, per Bloomberg: Egregious actions committed by R. Kelly warrant penalties beyond standard enforcement measures due to a potential to cause widespread harm. Ultimately we are taking this action to protect our users similar to other platforms.

Kelly’s official accounts on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook have also been disabled.

African Stars Who Love Online Casinos 7

How many times have you heard that celebrities are just regular people? It’s true; once they leave the scene, they have the same activities and hobbies. Online casinos are popular worldwide, so it’s no wonder that African stars love playing games on internet platforms. The majority doesn’t even hide this passion from the public. Here is a list of top African celebrities who enjoy online gambling!

This Senegalese-American author knows how attractive the online casinos real money experience is. Are you wondering how we know about his love for gambling? The answer is that he planned to build a casino himself!

Akon wants to do a huge thing for his home country Senegal. That’s why he revealed plans to build a futuristic city only an hour’s drive away from Dakar. Akon revealed that he drew inspiration from the Black Panther and his city Wakanda. The city should include shopping malls, solar power plants, stadiums, and other facilities. Yes, the list also includes a huge casino. The plan is to finish the city by 2030, but the project is still in an early phase.

  • Sol Kerzner

Solomon Kerzner was a South African business magnate that established the two biggest hotel groups in this country. Even though he was an accountant, Sol proved an expert in the tourism and hospitality industry. He redefined luxurious resorts in SA when he established Sun City in 1979.

It sounds incredible that Kerzner was flying over a pile of land when he had an epiphany. He believed it could become a majestic resort with a casino, and it only took a year to make those dreams come true. Kerzner established many hotels and casinos throughout South Africa. Sol’s contribution to the gambling scene was huge, so all gaming fans were saddened that he passed away in 2020.

  • Lupita Nyong’o

Lupita Nyong’o is an actress that had roles in Black Panther and Star Wars. She was born to Kenyan parents and is a huge star in Africa. Nyong’o doesn’t have anything against casinos. She proved that when she appeared in the Monte Casino in Johannesburg for a movie promotion. It was Queen of Katwe, a film that became a huge hit among the African audience.

  • Whoopi Goldberg

The passion for online casinos is equal among males and females. If you look for the most passionate women gambler among celebrities, you can’t overlook Whoopi Goldberg.

Whoopi was born in NYC but traced her roots to Guinea-Bissau. The actress never visited this country because she’s afraid of flying, but she has an open invitation from the government. In the meantime, Whoopi enjoys visiting land-based and online casinos. She even commented on the situation on the US gambling scene on several occasions. Her most controversial statement was about babies crying in casinos. Goldberg believes that you shouldn’t be able to see or hear any children while on the casino floor. That’s why she probably enjoys online gaming platforms that allow her to play from any location.

  • Chris Rock

Chris Rock is another celebrity who traced his roots back to Africa. The DNA tests showed he has Cameroonian descent. There’s no information if Rock ever visited Cameroon, but you can see that he gladly performs in casinos. Apart from these venues, we can also see this star at sports events. He loves tennis matches, and maybe we will see him at Premier League games soon, just like Burna Boy, who recently went to Manchester to watch a football game.

  • Ludacris

Ludacris showed how important family is. He married a beautiful girl from Gabon and decided to accept citizenship in this country. Ludacris went to Gabon with his wife and even visited Ghana during his journey.

We have reasons to believe the rapper enjoys playing casino games. His song “Put Your Money Up” mentions going to Vegas casinos with chips. Those lyrics could only be written by a person who loves online gambling.

How Celebrities Deal with Gambling Addiction

The fact you are a celebrity doesn’t make you immune to gambling addiction. It’s crucial to recognize if you take things too far.

Here is what celebrities who fought gambling addiction did:

  • Battling with it alone. Some famous people had the strong will necessary to reduce visits or stop playing in casinos altogether.
  • Ask friends and family for support. The celebrities underline it’s much easier when you are not going through a rough patch alone. Your friends and family can help while battling a gambling addiction.
  • Professional consultations. It’s no shame to head to professional therapy to deal with potential gambling issues.

Final Thoughts

The stars in various industries love the fun offered by casino games. Some keep this hobby a secret, while others don’t hide their gambling ventures. Online casinos made it easier for celebrities to play their favorite games whenever they felt like it. All they should do to join millions of players is pick a platform and sign up for an account.
