P. Diddy heads the Richest Hip hop artists in the world

According to Forbes, Diddy, Dr Dre, Jay Z, Birdman and 50 cent are the richest Hip Hop artists in the world currently…in that order. Didddy is now worth $700million. Wow! See the full report below…

Back in 2007, Sean “Diddy” Combs teamed with Jay Z and 50 Cent to create a song titled “I Get Money: Forbes 1-2-3 Billion Dollar Remix.” Less than a decade later, rappers are closing in on ten-figure fortunes, and he’s the nearest of the bunch.

Diddy leads the pack with an estimated fortune of $700 million, an increase of $120 million over his net worth last year. The change comes largely from the addition of Revolt TV—the new, music-focused, multi-platform channel of which he’s the majority owner—to his already-hefty portfolio. READ MORE AFTER THE CUT

Happy 34th Independence fellow Zimbabweans

Zimbabwe gained its nationhood exactly 34 years ago on 18th April, 1980. Shackles of bondage from our colonial masters were broken as Zimbabwe gained its sovereignty,  years of  deprivation, segregation, apartheid and oppression came to an end. Today is a special day for all Zimbabweans from all walks of life, irrespective of tribe, religion, political affiliation or creed. It is a day we celebrate the birth of our nationhood as Zimbabweans.

As we celebrate this special day, it is important to look back and acknowledge the supreme sacrifices paid by our heroes and heroines who gave up their lives to liberate our great country. Without their sacrifices, Zimbabwe would not be enjoying the peace and tranquillity prevailing in the country today. READ MORE AFTER THE CUT

Thomas Mapfumo’s Independence Message to fellow Zimbabweans

THOMAS MAPFUMO

Thomas Mapfumo

I wish to send my revolutionary greetings and congratulatory message to the people of Zimbabwe on this special occasion as our country celebrates 34 years of independence. 1980 was a momentous year in the history of our country as it marked an end to 90 years of colonialism, segregation, and racism and minority rule.

As we mark our independence, I take this opportunity to honour and salute the brave heroes and heroines of this land who sacrificed their lives, families, careers, and education to join the war of liberation. It is such sacrifices that brought about the freedom we are enjoying today.

I also wish to extend my special gratitude to the following countries that assisted us during the war — Mozambique, Zambia, Tanzania, China, Russia to mention but a few. It was their love, commitment and solidarity with the people of Zimbabwe that brought about our independence. When we were singing during the war — it was about freedom, justice hence I coined my music “Chimurenga”.
