Award Winning DJ Avicii Dies At 28

28 year-old Tim Bergling popularly known as Avicii is dead.

According to reports the Swedish-born producer and DJ has been found dead in Oman.

Avicii’s publicist Diana Baron confirmed the news in a statement that the DJ was in Muscat, Oman when he passed away.

“It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii,” Baron said. “He was found dead in Muscat, Oman this Friday afternoon local time, April 20th. The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this difficult time. No further statements will be given.”

Avicii was known as a pioneer of the Electronic Dance Movement.

Bergling chose the moniker “Avicii” because the word represented the lowest level of Buddhist hell. He was one of the most successful DJs in the electronic music industry.

The musician found crossover pop success with his 2011 track “Le7els,” which sampled Etta James, going platinum in the US and becoming a number one single internationally.

Avicii also collaborated with other artists and remixed their songs, working with Madonna, Robyn, Major Lazer, Daft Punk Coldplay (“A Sky Full of Stars”, “Hymn for the Weekend”) and Wyclef Jean and Santana (the 2014 World Cup anthem “Dar um Jeito”).

The DJ earned a Grammy nod in 2012 for “Sunshine” – a collaboration with David Guetta.

While he had been making music prior to “Le7els,” the track launched his career at 20 years old.

In 2012, he ended up on Forbes’ “Highest Paid DJs list”, and became number three on the list by 2014.

Throughout his career, he took home two MTV Music Awards, one Billboard Music Award and earned two Grammy nominations.

Just days before his death, Avicii was nominated for a Billboard Music Award for top dance/electronic album for his EP Avicii (01).

His biggest hits include “Le7els,” “Wake Me Up!,” “The Days,” and “You Make Me.

In 2016, Avicii retired from performing live after experiencing a variety of health problems including acute pancreatitis, partially due to drinking. Two years prior, he had his gallbladder and appendix removed, and he cancelled a series of tour dates in order to recover.

Despite retiring, he continued to make music in the studio.

Baby Mama Saga: Wande Coal Reveals His Side Of The Story

Singer, Wande Coal was recently accused of taking a child away from the mother after he had rejected the pregnancy years ago. The mother of the child Temitope, had revealed in an interview that she was only 16 at the time she got pregnant for Wande. She also stated that Wande Coal gave his parents the child to take care of and that they prevented her from seeing the 10-year-old boy.

Wande has however come out to defend himself saying Temitope told lies and that nothing was even close to the truth. He then shot himself in the foot by agreeing that she was indeed the mother of his child, but didn’t say the age of the lady when he got her pregnant.

He said;

“I want to start by saying that the only truth that has been said so far, is that the child is my son. Everything else is a lie. I honestly do not want to say much because at the end of the day, this is family and Temitope is the mother of the child but I must clarify a few things that she has failed to mention to blogs and websites who have refused to fact-check this story. Things that she has used to attack my character and the reputation of my family.

Temitope has failed to mention to the public that she did not tell me she was pregnant with my son. I didn’t even know she was pregnant. She married another man and claimed that the child was his and she never told me. We (my family) only knew about the child after her husband and other people, including her aunty, found out the child looked like me.

She was returned to her family with the child. The child was taken to D’banj’s mother who then reached out to my mother and asked for a paternity test to be done. This is why the paternity test was done in 2010 and not 2008. The house the Mo’Hits Crew stayed in at the time was owned by Dbanj’s mother and as Mo’Hits grew, everyone moved to the Maryland house. I did not leave the neighbourhood. Everyone knew where we moved to.

After we confirmed that the child was mine, my mother visited Temitope and everyone agreed that the child needed a cleaner and better environment. My mother took the child, Temitope and her sister to our house for a week. After that week, Temitope left and has not returned since to check on the child. Not even on his birthdays. In 2011, my mother reached out to Temitope and told her that she was disappointed in her. Temitope promised to come visit the child. She never did.

Temitope was in a “fashion school” which she left for reasons best known to her. Not because of the baby as she was married to someone else. My mother paid for a full session in another fashion school to make sure she had something to support herself. Temitope stopped attending three months after she started. If my mother didn’t want to see her, or allow her near the child, why would she do that for her?

The claim that she was refused entry to the house is also a lie. My parents have not changed phone numbers, neither have they moved from the house since the child was given to us. Why hasn’t she taken her family to my parents’ house if she was refused entry? She has both my father and mother’s numbers.

I have read things that blogs have stated that my mother said and I can say confidently that my mother would never say such a thing. I must also clarify that when I knew Temitope, she was 20 years old and the name “Joseph” is not my son’s name. That was the name she and her husband named him.

My parents are respectable and God fearing people, and it is disrespectful for anyone to portray them as Temitope, or blogs and media platforms have portrayed them.

The only reason I will not press charges is because she is the mother of the child. Temitope, stop telling lies. You have a chance to correct this error. No one has stopped you from seeing the child. No one will. I am focused on my career and building a future for my family and if you truly care about the child as you claim, you and your family should reach out to my family.

I love my son and this is the kind of madness I work hard to protect him from. I have said enough as these issues are family matters and I want to keep the rest of it that way.

For the record, the woman in that picture is not my mother and I do not know who she is.

Thank you.”

 

Meagan Good Finally Gets Eyebrow

Beautiful actress Meagan Good who has been known for having almost nothing for eye brows has announced to the world that her story has changed.

She revealed to fans that she indeed had an eyebrow transplant surgery and yes if you’re wondering, it worked.

She took to IG to say;

My eyebrows are finally coming along after my #EyebrowTransplant! This has been such an eyebrow evolution journey lol, but finally starting to come full circle ?? Eyebrows like a real little girl ????. No, but seriously after destroying my eyebrows at age 19, I’m over the moon with these results thus far. Special thanks to my guy, eyebrow specialist  @DrJasonChampagne ?. And thank you to @DrJasonDiamond ?#Salute !

Eyebrow transplant surgery involves taking hair from another part of the body and transplanting it to the brow area. Healthy follicles are harvested from the donor site, typically the back of the head, and transferred to create the desired brow shape. Hair transplanted to this area will begin to grow like it did in its original location, so regular trimming will be needed (NO WAXING OR TWEEZING)

Beverly Osu ‘Goes Market Woman’ On Fans

Former Big Brother Africa Housemate and Actress Beverly Osu has stunned fans with pretty pictures of herself with a poem titled ‘the Market Woman’.

The dark skinned beauty took to her IG page to share the beautiful photos. The caption read;

THE MARKET WOMAN

In the market
Her spirit comes alive
In the market
Her prowess is stripped
In the market
She discovers her charm
In the market
Her dreams takes a flight.

Just like air
She tends to the mighty and low
Without a care
She smiles no less to Midas than Mendicants
Come rain or shine
She thirsts for a better tomorrow
For in the market
She has found herself a home.
