American musician Kanye West, has predicted that he will be homeless for a year as he vowed to turn all his homes into churches to support orphans. 

The 44-year-old father of four, who has amassed properties all around the world in the course of his successful career, including his well-publicized Wyoming ranch, has disclosed that he intends to convert his homes into churches. 

The ‘DONDA’ rapper spoke on the need for society to progress during a lengthy interview with culture magazine 032c.

Kanye West said; 

 “We are under capitalist rule, and it’s killing us. It’s time to change that.

“I’m going to be homeless in a year. I’m going to turn all the homes I own into churches. We’re making this orphanage, and it will be a place where anyone can go.

“It should be like an artist commune. Food should always be available.”

Last month, Ye visited with LA Mission CEO Reverend Troy Vaughn and delivered 1,000 meals to the group to help end homelessness in the city. 

According to TMZ, the Grammy Award-winner is said to have ‘set out four ways he might help the homeless after touring the city’s Skid Row region, 

Kanye West is apparently intending to feed the homeless by forming a partnership with groups throughout Los Angeles, and will use his own businesses to help give education, shelter, and jobs for those living on the streets.

In 2019, West produced prototypes for an ambitious housing project in Los Angeles aimed at reducing homelessness. The dome structures, however, were demolished after it was discovered that the rapper lacked the necessary permits. 

He later revealed intentions to use the same domes to construct an eco-village and a children’s ranch.

North Koreans have been banned from laughing, drinking or displaying of happiness for 11 days to commemorate the tenth anniversary of former leader Kim Jong Il’s death .

The government authorities have ordered the public not to exhibit any displays of happiness while North Korea observes the 10th anniversary of his death.

North Korea was governed by Kim Jong Il from 1994 until his death in 2011. 

After controlling the country for 17 years in a cruel and repressive dictatorship, he died of a heart attack on December 17, 2011, at the age of 69.

His third and youngest son, current leader Kim Jong Un, took over as his successor. 

North Koreans are being obliged to observe the 11-day mourning period ten years after his death.

“We must not consume alcohol, joke, or indulge in recreational activities during the mourning time,” a North Korean from the northeastern border city of Sinuiju told Radio Free Asia (RFA).

According to the source, North Koreans are not allowed to go grocery shopping on December 17, the anniversary of Kim Jong Il’s death.

“Many people who were caught drinking or intoxicated during the mourning time were arrested and treated as ideological criminals in the past,” they continued. They were kidnapped and were never seen again. 

“Even if a family member dies during the mourning period, you are not permitted to cry aloud, and the body must be removed when the grieving period has ended.” If a person’s birthday falls within the mourning phase, they are unable to celebrate it.”

The annual mourning period for Kim Jong Il is generally ten days, but this year, to commemorate the tenth anniversary of his death, it will be eleven days.

The Federal Government will restrict airlines from Canada, the United Kingdom, and Saudi Arabia entering Nigeria as of Tuesday, December 14. 

Minister of Aviation, Capt. Hadi Sirika, announced the decision on Sunday in Lagos, explaining that it was in response to Nigerian restrictions on flights into those countries over the new COVID-19 variant, Omicron.

According to Sirika, President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration will also put the United Kingdom, Canada, and Saudi Arabia on a no-fly list because of the Omicron variant’s breakout and expansion. 

If those countries put Nigeria on a blacklist, the minister said, they have no moral right to have their airlines fly into Nigeria on commercial flights.

“Then there’s the case of Saudi Arabia, which placed Nigeria on a no-fly list. “We have offered our input that it is not acceptable to us and we requested that that Canada, the United Kingdom, Saudi Arabia, and Argentina be placed on the red list as well,” I said at a meeting with the COVID-19 task force on Sunday.

“If they don’t let our citizens into their countries, as they did to us, who are they going to pick from our country as airlines?” 

“They are not permitted to enter.” I am confident that in the next three days, on Monday or Tuesday, all of those nations will be included to COVID-19’s red list,” the minister stated.

He emphasized that the impacted countries’ airlines were still prohibited, and the countries were placed on Nigeria’s red list. 

Sirika apologized to Nigerians planning to visit such nations, but insisted that the Nigerian government’s move was in the country’s best interests.

To discourage citizens from following the totalitarian leader Kim Jong-Un fashion un’s taste, North Korea has made it illegal to wear leather trench coats.

The leather coat was first worn by Kim Jong-un in December 2019, when he met with Donald Trump to discuss North Korea’s nuclear weapons.

According to a Pyongsong local, the coats have been popularized by Kim Yo-jong, Jong-sister, un’s who has been seen wearing one.

The coat has subsequently become a symbol of power among North Korean elites who wanted to demonstrate their devotion to the Supreme Leader and could afford real leather.

It was learned that real leather coats imported from China were worn by wealthy individuals who could afford them, but soon after, garment manufacturers began importing imitation leather to manufacture them in the United States.
According to the source, who requested anonymity, Radio Free Asia reported:

“Now the leather coat has become a symbol for powerful women too.

“As leather coats began to be recognised as a symbol of power, private clothing merchants asked trading company officials to import synthetic leather since September of this year.

“They copied the design of the leather coats worn by the Highest Dignity and the officials and now they are being sold in the marketplace.”

To put a stop to the imitations, fashion police have been deployed to raid stores selling leather trench coats and seize them from customers, citing concerns that “it cheapens Kim’s style and undermines his authority.” Wearing garments made to seem like the Highest Dignity’s is a ‘impure trend to question the Highest Dignity’s authority,’ according to police.

They advised the public not to wear leather coats since it’s part of the party’s order to pick who can wear them, according to a source who spoke to Radio Free Asia.

According to the outlet, knock-off replicas of the garment first appeared in September of this year, when illicit trade between China and North Korea was restored following the Covid pandemic shutdown.

However, since the early 2000s, when smuggled South Korean films were in circulation, leather jackets have been a popular fashion choice in North Korea.

North Korea is reportedly to have taking extremely measures to punish people who distribute or watch Netflix’s hit show ‘Squid Game’.

A man has been sentenced to death in the country, according to Radio Free Asia, for smuggling and selling copies of a South Korean dystopian series. A high school student was also sentenced to life in jail for purchasing the show on a flash drive. 

Six other high school students who viewed the show were sentenced to five years in prison, with their supervisors, teachers, and school officials being fired.

“It all started last week when a high school student bought a USB flash drive carrying the South Korean drama Squid Game in secret and viewed it in class with one of his best friends,” a law enforcement source in North Hamgyong province told RFA. “The friend told few other other students about the flash drive, and they were fascinated, so they shared it with them.” 

This is said to be the first time the reclusive country has taken such punitive actions against youngsters as a result of its regulations prohibiting the distribution of films from South Korea and the United States, among other countries.
