Nigeria - Davido’s single with Tinashe delayed

We're now waiting on a new release date.

DRC - How Ben Affleck’s organisation is helping women in Congo

Dr Denis Mukwege of Panzi Hospital in Bakavu spoke to US publication #GlamourMagazine and spoke glowingly about Affleck's company: “#Ben #Affleck is helping Congolese women know their rights and fight for them. … He knows what should be done and what you have to work hard on. It’s not surface; it’s deep.”
