Kim Porter and Diddy’s twins ring in their sweet sixteen birthday in style, with their father gifting them matching range rovers to welcome their late teenage years.

On Sunday, Diddy hosted a star-studded affair that featured a futuristic theme for the teens just weeks after he shared that he fathered a sixth biological child that was born in October. “Happy 16th birthday to my beautiful daughters Jessie and D’lila,” Diddy wrote. “I’m so proud of the intelligent and ambitious young ladies you’re becoming. I know your mother is proud and smiling down on you. I LOVE YOU! I LOVE YOU!! I LOVE YOU!! May God continue to bless and protect you both.”

Videos of the birthday party showed Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs bringing out his daughters, D’Lila and Jessie, with whom he shares with the late Kim Porter, to a surprise-matching Range Rovers to welcome to the chapter that they can now drive legally.

In videos, the young women are seen wearing high-waisted shorts and cropped tops with garters that are said to fit in their futuristic theme. Although some fans of Diddy felt that the outfit was too grown for teenagers, the teens appeared happy and overwhelmed by the gift, with one covering her mouth in shock.

In one video, the girls squeal with joy and rush their father with a big hug. A woman in the background also shared that the girls had asked for a black and a white vehicle, and Diddy certainly delivered.

In other videos, it appears that the girls had an outfit change as their father shared a video on Instagram stories showing them wearing silver jumpsuits and matching sunglasses.

There were also two birthday cakes for the girls, and Coi Leray made a special appearance where she performed for the girls.

In the meantime, among those who attended the birthday bash was Cali Dream, the daughter of rapper, The Game. The rapper shared a photo of his daughter, who is now 12 years old, but many fans reacted with some noting that her outfit was not appropriate for a 12-year-old. However, the rapper had a message for critics noting that he and his daughter’s mother decided to allow her to wear the outfit.

“Tiffney called me & asked me would it be okay for my daughter to wear the dress in the photo to the twins party… after talking to her thoroughly for over an hour about it, I agreed to let my daughter rock.. being that she wears a school uniform 5 days a week. My daughter has grown tremendously over the last year & is now almost 5’9 in height & beautiful. She’s a straight A student & is shy in most cases & dresses like a Tom boy in baggy jeans and Dr. Martin boots damn near everyday. The twins had a futuristic bday theme & my baby wanted to look great & be in full confidence going to support her friends celebration. I am her father & her protector and she is & will always be an amazing young woman. I wish everyone happy holidays & thanks for your opinions on a child that belongs to US but we GOT THIS,” the rapper wrote.

Toni-Ann Singh left the crowd speechless at Burna Boy’s concert in Kingston on Sunday night.

The African Giant was on the island as part of his Love Damini world tour, which featured an electric performance from Burna Boy and Popcaan, who also brought out Toni-Ann Singh for a guest performance. Performing her verse, the beauty queen serenaded Popcaan and even appeared excited when fans belted out her verse, “run run run heart be racing like a drum, drum drum, feel it in my soul.” Singh lets out a squeal and jumps up after fans sing along.

The reception to Toni-Ann Singh’s performance and the acceptance from fans might have been a surprise to her as just recently, Singh was a beauty queen, and although her talent piece was a song, not many expected that she had inclinations to become an artist.

On stage, the chemistry between the artists was obvious as she ensured that Popcaan knew she was singing to him. The OVO artist also popped a delicate kiss on Singh’s cheek, leaving her blushing.

Toni-Ann Singh, whose appearance at the Burna Boy event was the first stage performance ever, also expressed care towards Popcaan as she wiped the sweat from his face. Earlier this month, the former Miss Jamaica World and Miss Universe and Popcaan released the love ballad, which is her debut as a musician.

Concertgoers also shared excitement at seeing her and Popcaan perform. “Toni-Ann Singh SANG! Also Jamaicans love a love story, everytime they hug up a bere noise,” one fan recollected on Twitter.

“Popcaan calls out Toni-Ann Singh and the place shell!” another said. “Watch love,” another fan added.

“Popcaan making love to Toni-Ann Singh last night on stage was a moment! Jamaica loved every minute. KILLY KILLY A KISS WEDDING COMING SOON,” another said.

Burna Boy was in fine form at his first show in Jamaica as he performed several of his hits, including the smash hit “Last Last,” a song rumored to be addressing his ex-girlfriend Stefflon Don. Popcaan also brought out Beres Hammond to perform their collaboration.


Caribbean Roots French Player Targeted With Online Racial Abuse

Black Immigrant Daily News

By NAN Sports Editor

News Americas, PARIS, France, Mon. Dec. 19, 2022: While the French soccer team failed to repeat history and claim another World Cup title Sunday, losing by penalty kicks to South American soccer giant Argentina, a Caribbean roots French player who missed a penalty kick has been forced to deal with online racism because of his miss.

Kingsley Junior Coman, a forward who was born in Paris to parents from Guadeloupe, has been targeted with horrific racist abuse since missing his penalty in France’s World Cup final shoot-out defeat against Argentina in Qatar on Sunday evening.

Coman along with Aurelien Tchouameni and Randal Kolo Muani, who all featured in the final, were subjected to vile messages on their accounts, as reported by The Athletic.

Coman and Tchouameni missed penalties in the shootout, while Kolo Muani missed a chance to win the game in extra-time.

The trio received messages that included banana and monkey emojis on their Instagram accounts just moments after the loss. Tchouameni reportedly disabled his Instagram account for a brief time following the racist comments.

Meta, which owns Instagram, Facebook and WhatsApp, condemned the abusive posts and said the messages had been removed. 

Some of the message sent.

FC Bayern, the club Coman plays for, strongly condemned the racist comments noting on Twitter: “The FC Bayern family is behind you, King. Racism has no place in sport or our society.”

The abuse received by the French players is similar to what occurred following England’s loss to Italy on penalties in the final of Euro 2020 last year.

After that game Bukayo Saka, Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho, who all missed penalties, received racist abuse online.

Meanwhile the other Caribbean heritage player on the French team, Manchester United defender Raphael Varane, who lasted 113 minutes of the 120 minutes of play and had o be helped off in extra-time, looking absolutely exhausted, and with a minor injury, says he is taking the defeat hard.

“We are very disappointed of course, we gave everything,” Varane said. “We had to face a lot of obstacles during the competition, we gave up nothing. For an hour we were not in the game. We could have won too. …. We almost turned the game around, which was not going well. … There was mental strength in this group, a lot of heart. That allowed us to come back in this game. We’re disappointed but also proud.”

France was beaten 4-2 in a penalty shootout by Argentina on Sunday as they failed to defend their world title.

Kingsley Ben-Adir Spotted Filming Bob Marley Biopic In London

Actor Kingsley Ben-Adir has been spotted with film crew in London filming the upcoming Bob Marley biopic.

The Paramount film has been in the works for over a year now, with Reinaldo Marcus Green taking on the director role and will focus on the making of the reggae legend’s classic album, Exodus. Although there were a lot of controversies surrounding the casting of a non-Jamaica for the lead role of Bob Marley, British actor Kingsley Ben-Adir is settling into the role.

This weekend Daily Mail shared some images of Ben-Adir on set in London, and fans are raving about them. The actor was spotted surrounding a group of paparazzi and fans wanting to get autographs while carrying an Adidas leather bang in one hand. He donned a green jacket, blue bell foot denim pants, and a red, blue, and white sweater. The actor also wore the traditional green gold and red rasta tam as he made his way through the crowd to hop on a bus while obviously being the center of attention. According to the Mail, the

In one photo, Ben-Adir was sitting on the bus, looking like he was in deep thought. After wrapping up filming in London over the next few weeks, the film crew will head to Jamaica next to continue production. Sources say filming will be done in Trench Town and other sections of Kingston, including at the Tuff Gong studio.

Bob Marley’s widow Rita Marley, as well as son Ziggy Marley and daughter Cedella, are the executive producers of the biopic. Cedella is the head of Tuff Gong Records, the production company that is partnering with Paramount for the film. The label was founded by Bob Marley in 1970, where he subsequently released all of his music.

Kingsley Ben-Adir was handpicked for the lead role earlier this year, leaving a lot of fans of Bob Marley fuming, particularly Jamaicans who thought that the lead role should be played by someone from the island. Bob’s son Ky-Mani Marley had also expressed interest in playing his father in the film. Some fans thought it was a no go casting someone who is not of a musical background. Director Reinaldo Marcus Green addressed those concerns earlier this year, saying he was more interested in the Peaky Blinder actor’s acting skills.

While Kingsley Ben-Adir is playing the role of Bob Marley, British actress Lashana Lynch who is of Jamaican descent is playing the role of Rita Marley. She recently shared a photo from the production set showing that she has already started working on the film.
