Katy Perry is first twitter user to hit 100 million followers

American pop star Katy Perry has added a new honour to her crown: She is the first Twitter user to reach 100 million followers.

(Regarding grievances: Perry’s noted rival Taylor Swift has a comparatively paltry 85.1 million followers.) Coincidentally, Perry hit her milestone the same morning President Trump tweeted about having “over 100 million people” following him.

Bebe Cool to die an artist not politician

Ugandan artiste Bebe Cool has rubbished rumours that he may soon be going into politics. The Mbozi za Malwa featuring Sauti Sol hit maker said in a recent interview that he would never go into politics as politicians are broke people.
