I’m tired of random dates, I need a Man –Lorraine Lionheart, music star







Hewn by the rough sands of the Kalahari desert, Lorraine Lionheart has grown into a beautiful woman who knows what she wants in life and she is going for it.
Young, ambitious and breath-taking, Lorraine was in Nigeria during Felabration 2017 where she performed. In this chat with Entertainer, the UK based Motswani opens up on her career, growing up, her sound and her love for Nigeria, among others.
What was it like growing up in the Kalahari desert?
I come from a tribe called the Kgalagadi who are Hottentots and I feel it has been such a privilege to have first hand experience of our culture, having spent most of my childhood in the Kalahari. It has shaped the most valuable part of who I am becoming and I am forever grateful for that. Life where I grew up is completely different from where I now reside in the UK, but I have learnt to appreciate the best and the worst of both worlds.
Tell us about your family and your struggles as a young girl growing up?
I come from very humble beginnings. I am the first of three children and having lost my mother who was a single mother, at the age of 15, I had to grow up pretty fast in order to support my siblings. Up until they were all grown up, my focus was just merely surviving under very poor circumstances. Fortunately, I am now in a position where I am no longer just surviving, but living life to the fullest and chasing my dreams. I used to feel that my career started very late because of family obligations but I now realise the life experience I have gained from family responsibilities is priceless and it prepared me for a big shot at the tough entertainment industry.
From which of your parents did you get your music talent?
Definitely my dad; I have not always had the best relationship with him, but we always loved each other and are so alike in many ways. Dad introduced me to many types of music, which influenced my art a great deal today.
At what age did you discover you were cut out to be a musician?
I discovered I could compose songs from as young as five, but at that age and for quite a few years I thought it was what all kids did. I dreamt of being an entertainer, but it wasn’t clear what discipline. I always felt I was going to be an actor and film producer. But as I grew older, I continued to have more and more songs just coming to me in all kinds of ways and I could not stop it. Like for example, just last night I dreamt of a brand new song and I woke up this morning and started writing right away. The more that happened the more I was convinced it was my destiny and I had to embrace it instead of questioning it.
What were your initial challenges when you started, and did you experience any form of sexual harassment from music producers?
I have had numerous experiences of sexual harassment in the industry. Sadly, that is just what many women go through. For the most part, society blames the victims and protects the perpetrators. My music has a sexual undertone and so does my artist persona. I see music as a medium for personal expression and I express everything I am through my art. I consider myself quite feminine and a sensual woman and that manifests in my works too. However, it is often easily misinterpreted as an invitation to get personal. I have now worked on drawing a solid line between harmless banter and what I deem inappropriate. Fortunately, I am strong enough a person to just tell people straight to back off, if I feel their behaviour is unacceptable and I am not afraid to lose any opportunity if attaining it means I have to give up my integrity.
How many albums have you released till date?
I am an African artist with an exciting future. I have released an 8 tracker EP entitled About A Girl almost two years ago, which helped a great deal in introducing my music to the world and helping me shape my own authentic sound. I have also released numerous singles and my debut 14-track album drops December 2.
You were in Nigeria recently for Felabration. What does Fela mean to you?
Fela is one of my absolute heroes. I respect people who dare to be themselves. He is a legend because he refused to follow anyone’s standards but his own. I love that being on an international platform did not at any stage tempt him to abandon his true identity and he has inspired me to want to learn about African history, embrace my culture and also to be free to be myself, unapologetically. Performing at Felabration was wow! I will forever remember the day I entered the Shrine for the first time. It’s like the Mecca of African music. I felt like I had just entered some sort of a sacred place. It was an absolute dream come true being part of Felabration. The audience were quite welcoming , which I really appreciated because I know they are not familiar with my music. The media was also quite generous with their attention. Overall, no matter how many big shows I end up performing at, Felabration will remain for me one of the most important.
You also shot a video and recorded a new song, Keke Napep in Nigeria. What inspired that move?
There was no way I was going to be in Nigeria and not be inspired by the environment, the way of life and the people, to write new music. I just saw the Keke Napep and immediately knew I had to ride it at some point before I leave the country. I imagined owning one and I think when I get married I would love that to be the bride and groom ride. I just need to find a Nigerian groom now perhaps (laughter). The Keke Napep is just so cool. The video is now on Youtube and Facebook and I have had amazing feedback from it. Also, I am a beard fanatic, so I was so excited to have a Nigerian boy with enough beards in my music video. I did two songs while in Lagos and filmed music videos for both. The other one drops soon.
Any plans for a collaboration with Nigerian artistes?
My God, Nigeria is full of talents, and I want to collaborate with just about everybody. I am hoping that will start happening very fast because I am so keen. I love the Nigerian sound and I feel it just works really well when fused with my own sound, as demonstrated with the Keke Napep song.When you leave Nigeria, what message are you taking back with you to the UK?
I felt safe the entire time in Lagos and found the people to be so warm and friendly. I would recommend anyone to visit and experience Nigeria.
Is you husband supportive of your career and what does your seven year-old son mean to you?
I am not married and currently not even dating anyone. I have to admit it’s starting to get a little boring though, so hopefully God will bless me with that supportive husband someday soon. I am too lazy to date and sometimes too busy too, so I am hoping my God- given husband will somehow just come and knock at my door, and save me the trouble of having to go on random dates with random people, while trying to find him. My son is the reason why I strive for greatness, not to make a lot of money for him, but just to inspire him to also go for his dreams no matter what. He also keeps me grounded. I love being his mother.
Can you describe your ideal man and what it will take to conquer your heart?
He must just have a pulse. Jokes aside, I am more in to the character of a man than his looks or possessions. This is very important for me, because good looks are not really forever and one can lose all possession in a blink of an eye. So I need to know that if he lost it all, I would still be left with a great man. A God -fearing man with a good heart, good sense of humour and intellect does it for me. Someone open minded, compassionate, conscious, spiritually developed and culturally proud. Gosh, I ask for a lot, right? No wonder I am single.
Could you marry a Nigerian?
Yes, without a doubt I can see myself marrying a Nigerian man, one who is truly proud to be Nigerian and to be African.  I hear they are quite amazing lovers too. What girl doesn’t want that?
What part of your anatomy do you consider your selling point?
They reckon a woman’s best curve is her smile, but nah, my hips definitely give my smile a run for its money. I flaunt them at every opportunity, shamelessly and unapologetically.

There are many complications over Cavani’s exit, but, with the 30-year-old looking to keep a decent pay packet, perform in the Champions League and remain to be the first choice up front. The former Napoli hit-man would incredible start every match for Chelsea after the success of their summer signing Alvaro Morata, though Antonio Conte has been keen to bring in extra centre-forward to rotate with the Spaniard.






Chelsea are reportedly between the teams considering a shock January transfer window move for unsettled Paris Saint-Germain attacker  Edinson Cavani.
The Uruguay international’s fate at the Parc des Princes is in serious doubt after a high-profile dispute with team-mate Neymar on the pitch during the victory over Lyon at the weekend.
The Stories emerged yesterday that Neymar wants Cavani sold after the fight, which saw them come to blows on more than one time over who should be on set-piece duty.
PSG spent £199million on Neymar in the summer and the South American is now their undisputed attacker, with speculation growing that Cavani could be sold as soon as the transfer window re-opens in the winter.
Chelsea are considered as being between his top suitors, but Everton, Juventus, Inter Milan, Napoli and Borussia Dortmund are also interested, as reported by the Daily Mail.

“I’m prepared to play in any position” – Chelsea defender ready to do anything for more playing time.





Antonio Conte trainingChelsea defender Andreas Christensen has revealed that manager Antonio Conte is training him in each defensive position to make him more of a complete player.
The 21-year-old is desperate for more playing time at the Blues this term, as he returned to the club from an impressive two-year loan spell at Borussia Monchengladbach.


Christensen has made three Premier League starts for the Blues this season – against Tottenham, Stoke City and Manchester City – and has only seemed better and better each and every time on the pitch.christensen-cityConte has played Christensen as David Luiz’s main back-up for the past weeks following the Brazilian’s red card and three-game ban against Arsenal. Luiz’s suspension has now finished though, and Conte will have a big decision to make with his defensive trio ahead of Chelsea’s visit to Crystal Palace next week.
Christensen believes that his good performances, especially against Man City, will eventually earn him more playing time for the Blues.
I’m happy for the matches I’ve got, and I think I’ve shown myself as well as I could. It may seem like I play [in one position], but at training I have also trained on the other two places, so if I need it, I will not think twice about jumping in there.
I can use it for something, and I hope it [Man City performance] can help give me more playing time ahead. But the result was not very good, so it’s only the positive I can take with it.
The 21-year-old also claims that after a very demanding start to the season, the players are finally starting to ‘find their legs’ and show what they’re made of.
We have played seven matches in 21 days, so it has been hard. Conte started before it was time to say that if anyone thought they could play all seven matches, there was something wrong with them.
He made a great effort to rotate, and he has done that too. But I think we have found our legs and know what to do.

Man City Injury Update: Chelsea vs Manchester City





Man City Injury Update: Chelsea vs Manchester CityPremier League leaders Manchester City will reportedly be without two key defenders ahead of Sunday's crunch encounter against Chelsea.

The Citizens have been in splendid form since the start of the campaign, and they occupy the top position on the table with 16 points from six games.

City have won their last three league games by a margin of five or more goals, but they will expect a tougher test this week with Chelsea back in form.

Antonio Conte's side suffered a minor stutter during their opening-day setback to Burnley, but they have since recovered with an unbeaten run which has included four victories.

Injury News:

The Citizens look certain to be without Benjamin Mendy after the City medical team assessed his knee injury in Barcelona earlier this week.

The Frenchman is said to have suffered a long-term injury as per Yahoo Sport, and he is likely to remain sidelined until the turn of the year.

In his absence, Danilo is a likely candidate to play at left-back having played no part in the 2-0 Champions League win over Shakhtar Donetsk.

Other than that, captain Vincent Kompany is most likely to miss out on the game as he is still short of fitness following his recovery from a calf issue.

Ilkay Gundogan, however, could make the substitutes' bench after he overcame his recent knock in the League Cup to make a late appearance in Ukraine.

After yesterday game chelsea right to sell Costa as Zola talks up Morata





script> (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Selling Diego Costa back to Atletico Madrid was the right decision by Chelsea, according to Gianfranco Zola.Costa-cropped

Chelsea great Gianfranco Zola believes the Premier League champions made the right decision selling Diego Costa as they benefit from the arrival of Alvaro Morata.
A deal reportedly worth €60million will see Spain international striker Costa return to LaLiga side Atletico Madrid in January, having fallen out with Chelsea boss Antonio Conte.
Costa helped Chelsea to two Premier League titles and EFL Cup silverware but Zola feels the 28-year-old's departure makes sense for the club especially after signing former Real Madrid forward Morata, who scored in Wednesday's 2-1 Champions League victory at Atletico.
"I have no doubt that it was right for him to go. He probably has a problem, the team is not made by one player, and I think it's better for him to go," Zola told Sky Sports.
"On the temporal level Morata is not on the same level as Costa. Technically he is a great player, he obviously has a lot of qualities, good in the air, good feet.
"He has been with Juventus, Real Madrid, big teams, but didn't play regularly, and I want to find out why. And this year I think I'm going to get the answers."
Morata has hit the ground running since joining from Spanish and European champions Madrid, scoring seven goals in all competitions.
Former Manchester City and Liverpool attacker Craig Bellamy added: "Costa is a brilliant player, Chelsea fans love him, he is always a threat, always involved, but clearly something happened. And that's between the manager and himself. It helps that if Costa does leave you can bring in Morata.
"At Real and Juventus there is always going to be competition for places. But you look at Chelsea at this moment, he does look like the main man. I think he could add something different to Chelsea, especially away from home.
"I love the way he is always on the shoulder. He can do that a little bit more, and a little bit better than what Costa did."

Photos:18-years-old student Invents ELECTROSHOE that lets women Electrocute Rapists.







Sexual assault against women is a really big problem, as hardly a day goes by without a case being reported in the media. An 18-year-old teenage boy is trying to help women fight back against aggressors by literally giving them the shock of their life.
After witnessing multiple instances of disturbing and life-changing acts of violence against women, as well as attending many protests with his mother demanding change, Siddharth Mandala, a student from Telengana, India decided he needed to do something himself.
He spent years working on the “ElectroShoe”, a unique type of anti-sexual assault footwear that electrocutes attackers by inflicting 0.1 Ampere of electricity while also alerting police and family members that the wearer is in danger. All the wearer has to do is kick the perpetrator.
“I invented a patent-pending device called ElectroShoe. It can electrocute the perpetrator instantly by inflicting 0.1 Ampere of electricity, while sending an alert for assistance to cops and family members,” Siddharth told The Better India.
“To accomplish this, I created a unique circuit board that uses footsteps to charge itself with the help of a concept called the ‘piezoelectric effect’ which I learned in my physics class. The more the user walks, the more energy is generated and stored in a rechargeable battery.” 

Despite having no higher education in technology or science, Mandala valiantly attempted to develop the shoe on his own, but after suffering several shocks himself, he realized he needed to seek help from professionals. Over the years, Mandala had to pester programmers and engineers, both online and offline, in order to get the answer he needed, and admits that many were so fed up with his questions that they stopped responding. However, after 17 failed prototype, he finally came up with a viable version, ODD Central reports.While experimenting, I faced electrocution twice, and my friend Abhishek even developed a nosebleed,” the 17-year-old said. “But whenever I felt like giving up, I remembered my favorite inventor Thomas Edison’s words, ‘I didn’t fail 1,000 times. The light-bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps.’”
The ElectroShoe is still in it’s developmental stage and is unfortunately not available to purchase just yet. Mandala has a few kinks left to work out and he still has to find a way to make the invention work with shoe styles other than flip-flops, but he has filed a patent and plans to market the ElectroShoe soon.
In the meantime, Mandala has become very enthusiastic about pursuing an education and subsequent career in science and technology in order to keep creating innovative crime-prevention products. He has also become an activist and set up his own NGO to spread awareness about sexual assault and volunteers teaching children basic coding. Mandala is truly an inspiration and his invention is a beacon of hope for women who are tired of walking the streets in fear.
