She then decided to become a trader at a market in Benin City, Edo and was able to co-sponsor his undergraduate education with her meagre earnings.

Michael praised his mother for ‘stooping low’ to engage in the trading business. He added that despite the ridicule from her friends, she continued at the work and was willing to sacrifice her resources to ensure he had a bright future.

He wrote; ”Someone asked me what/who inspires me, I answered “my mom”.

My mom is currently 55 and although she graduated from the University of Benin, she couldn’t get a job for over 17 years, so she decided to become a trader in a market in Benin City, Edo State, Nigeria.

This woman despite earning little from her trade, still co-sponsored me during my undergraduate days at the University of Benin and periodically sacrificed whatever means available to her just to make me have a brighter future.

She has always been my example right from day one and the thought of her stooping low to become a ” market trader” despite her educational qualification and ridicule from her peers just to provide for her children, inspires me to work harder in life so that all her sacrifices won’t be in vain.

A special shout out to all mothers out there who despite having little, still try to give their kids the best future.”

Master P Wants Judge To Declare Him As Single After Being Separated For More Than 10 Years

Published

According to TMZ, Master P is ready to move on with his life after being separated for more than 10 years.

In documents obtained by TMZ, Master P is asking for his single status to be reinstated. After his estranged wife Sonya Miller filed for divorce in 2013, and the two settled financial issues in 2016, the paperwork for their divorce was never submitted.

As a result, the mogul wants “bifurcation of his divorce,” and intends to handle the actual divorce at a later time.

If you recall, the two actually separated in 2010. In 2016, the music mogul attempted to get $10,473 in child support and $16,574 in spousal support reduced.

He reportedly had their children–Hercy, Itali and Mercy–to write letters to the judge explaining why they are better off living with their father opposed to living with their mother.

In her letter to the judge, their 17-year-old daughter Itali said, “Although I love being with my mom I was unable to keep my grades up. Unfortunately, my mom was dealing with addiction issues that affected my older sister, who hasn’t even had the opportunity to graduate high school.”

Roomies, what do y’all think of this?

CNN Has Terminated Chris Cuomo Effective Immediately

That was quick! Roommates, as we previously reported, Chris Cuomo was suspended indefinitely on Dec. 1st from his position at CNN after details emerged about how he helped his brother Andrew Cuomo amid his sexual harassment scandal. However, the network has moved swiftly and officially terminated him.

In a statement, CNN said, “Chris Cuomo was suspended earlier this week pending further evaluation of new information that came to light about his involvement with his brother’s defense. We retained a respected law firm to conduct the review and have terminated him, effective immediately.” The statement continued, “While in the process of that review, additional information has come to light. Despite the termination, we will investigate as appropriate.”

Chris also broke his silence and released a statement of his own. Chris tweeted, “This is not how I want my time at CNN to end, but I have already told you why and how I helped my brother. So let me now say, as disappointing as this is, I could not be more proud of the team at Cuomo Prime Time and the work we did as CNN’s #1 show in the most competitive time slot. I owe them all and will miss that group of special people who did really important work.”

Although Chris has played down his involvement with the Governor’s office, massive details became available Monday through a huge document dump. Documents released by New York Attorney General Letitia James showed that while Chris worked as one of CNN’s top anchors, he worked unpaid to aide the Governor. A CNN spokesperson declined to share any further detail about the information provided in this report. Roommates, we’ll continue to keep ya’ll updated if more details surface!

Attorney Ben Crump Calls For The FBI To Investigate The Death Of Jelani Day As A Hate Crime

Published

Roommates, the family of graduate student Jelani Day, whose body was found in the Illinois River, weeks after he was reported missing on August 24th, is still searching for answers surrounding his death. According to NBC News, his mother, Carmen Bolden, doesn’t believe the narrative about her son that he did something to himself and has hired civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump, who represented George Floyd’s family, to bring them justice.

During a recent press conference at the Rainbow Push Coalition’s headquarters in Chicago, Attorney Crump demanded the FBI to investigate Jelani’s case as a federal hate crime. “We are asking the FBI to make this young, Black man named Jelani Day a priority just like they did the young white woman, Gabby Petito, because his life matters just like hers,” Attorney Crump pleaded. 

He wasn’t the only one who spoke out at the conference. Carmen, standing beside Attorney Crump and Rev. Jesse Jackson, also made an emotional plea for her son’s death to be taken seriously. “I’m asking you. I’m imploring you. I’m begging you. I need to know what happened to my son,” Carmen said. “I need the FBI to come in and take over. … They need to make Jelani a priority.”

This isn’t the first time Carmen has pleaded to authorities to do more. As we previously reported in September, Carmen interviewed with Newsy, where she compared Gabby’s national coverage to the coverage her son received. She explained that Jelani hadn’t been getting coverage, although he had been missing for 24 days. Carmen also stated it seemed like the effort to find him has slacked down because everyone knew about Gabby, who at the time was only missing for two days, and the FBI immediately became involved.

Roommates, we will keep you updated as more information becomes available.
