In this second episode of his East Africa tours, Ikenna and What's Up Africa take a peek into the Ugandan professional football league. Ikenna catches up with Mujeeb Kasule, the Vice President of the Ugandan Football Association, and also Director of Proline FC, one of the most successful teams in the local professional league. Kasule explains his reasons for retiring early from playing professionally and dedicating his work to improve the operational structures and administration challenges faced by the UFA. He explains how his time spent in the United States as a college student has quipped him with that knowledge. As animated as Ikenna is, we know he would not end the episode without giving us  a taste of his skills on the pitch; and it can be admitted that he is a much better soccer player than he is a breakdancer! ... Even though he only manages to make Proline's under 15 squad!

Tems Is Just Doing Her Thang In New Music Video 'Crazy Tings'

The Nigerian songstress is hell bent on taking over your summer playlist and it's getting harder to resist.

It has been a fantastic year for Tems. The Nigerian singer, producer, and songwriter achieved a platinum record for eternal banger Essence, her collaboration with fellow Nigerian superstar Wizkid, an MTV EMA nomination for Best African Artist, a billion worldwide video views, and over 350 million audio streams. Not to mention featuring on Canadian rapper Drake's blowout album Certified Lover Boy, the singer has also sold out every show she's booked.

The release of Tems's sophomore EP If Orange Was a Place solidified her place amongst the greats and it was received with gusto by fans and international audiences. A month after the release the Afrobeats singer has graced fans with a sultry music video to go along with equally as tantalizing lead single Crazy Tings. Conceptualized by the multitalented Tems, and directed by UAX, the music video follows a sensual Tems as she sings about needing space from a lying partner.

International audiences continue to rave over the songstress, with Tems delivering an impressive US TV debut on late-night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live! this month. Essence continues to top international charts. While becoming the official song of the summer, the track peaked on the Billboard 100 Top 10, becoming the most Shazamed song in the United States and was remixed by Canadian musical heavyweight Justin Bieber, becoming the first song written by Nigerian artists to hit No.1 on Urban Radio.

Tems has been producing consistent hits since her debut in September 2020, and a year later, the singer's immense talent is securing her reputation as a world-class superstar.
