North Korea fires gunshots towards South Korea in
North Korea fired multiple gunshots towards South Korea after Kim Jong-un resurfaced amid speculation he had died.
According to reports, North Korean troops fired towards the South in the Demilitarized Zone dividing the peninsula early on Sunday, prompting South Korean forces to retaliate by firing back.
Gunfire broke out between the two nations when North Korea fired a series of shots towards a guard post in South Korea that borders the North at 7.41am local time, the South’s Joint Chiefs of Staffs said.

The JCS in Seoul said in a statement today that the guard post was hit by several shots from the North. 
The gunfire exchange between the two countries comes a day after North Korean state media reported that leader Kim Jong-un had made his first public appearance in nearly three weeks intense speculation about his health.

South Korea responded by firing two shots back towards North Korea, the JCS said.
‘We are taking actions via inter-Korean communication lines to grasp the detailed situation and to prevent any further incidents,’ the JCS statement read.
‘And we also maintain a necessary readiness posture.’

‘Our military responded with two rounds of gunfire and a warning announcement,’ the JCS said.
The South Korean military later said the North Korean gunshots were ‘not deemed intentional’, according to the Yonhap news agency. 
In a lengthy briefing held later on Sunday, an official at South Korea’s JCS said the gunshots did not seem a planned provocation.
‘In absence of vision [for the target] and in the fog, would there be an accurate provocation?’ the official said.

It is not clear why the rare gunfire between the two countries erupted, but no injuries have been reported on both sides, but Choi Kang, vice president of the Asan Institute for Policy Studies, said he believed the gunshot could have been planned to show that Kim was still in charge of the North Korean military.
‘Yesterday, Kim was trying to show he is perfectly healthy, and today, Kim is trying to mute all kinds of speculation that he may not have full control over the military,’ Choi said.
‘Rather than going all the way by firing missiles and supervising a missile launch, Kim could be reminding us, ”yes I’m healthy and I’m still in power”.’

Nicki Minaj agrees “Essence” should be song of the year at the Grammys

American superstar rapper, Nicki Minaj, shares the same sentiments as myriads of Wizkid fans and well-wishers worldwide, in that she concurs to the argument the trendsetting crossover record-breaking single from Wizkid’s 2020 released “Made In Lagos” album, Essence should be in the conversation for the coveted “Record of the Year” plaque at this year’s Grammy Awards.

Although “Essence” did not receive the much desired nomination in the category for “Record of the Year” at the 2022 Grammy Awards, it did get a nod for Best Global Music Performance, the first of its kind.

Irrespective of the snub, Nicki whilie on Joe Budden TV (YouTube) as a guest on the special episode tagged A Conversation With Nicki Minaj & Joe Budden agreed with the host (Joe Budden) when he said “We need people on the Grammy board that know that “Essence” was song of the year” with an exclamatory “Right! Right!” response. She even proffered, “We should have our own Grammy Board“, in support of many and the popular believe that Black Americans or black artistes in general are always stereotyped to a particular category at the award show, if indeed they made it to the top categories, they barely win; Nicki Minaj does not have a Grammy Award herself and that is still a shock to many, especially when considering her refined catalogue of music.
