Bob Marley’s Grandson, Skip Marley, Shares New Politically Charged Music Video [Watch]

first_imgSkip Marley, grandson to the late and great Bob Marley, just released a music video for his new single, “Lions.” With many of the lyrics taking on an explicitly political message, “If ya took all my rights away / If ya tellin’ me how to pray / If ya won’t let us demonstrate / You’re wrong,” the track is triumphant and clearly defiant. The video itself features Marley and other young people, all dressed in black, plotting and rising up against a tyrannical fascist dictator in a dystopian future.

Mugello circuit to host Ferrari’s 1,000th Formula One race

first_imgLONDON: The Ferrari-owned Mugello circuit will debut on the Formula One calendar in September to host the Italian team’s 1,000th championship Grand Prix, with Russia’s race in Sochi also confirmed on Friday.The September 13 race, to be called the Grand Prix of Tuscany Ferrari 1,000, will follow on from the September 6 Italian Grand Prix at Monza as the ninth round of a season that has been heavily revised due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Russia will be the 10th race on September 27. Formula One said in a statement it still expected to stage between 15-18 rounds in a championship that started at Austria’s Red Bull Ring last weekend, with more announcements in coming weeks. “We are increasingly confident in our plans to race throughout the remainder of 2020,” said Formula One chairman Chase Carey. “The Russian Grand Prix is a major moment in our season and we are looking forward to being back in Sochi in September. “We are equally excited to see Formula One race for the first time at Mugello, an occasion that will mark Ferrari’s 1,000th Grand Prix.” Mugello will be the fourth Italian circuit to host a championship Grand Prix, after Monza, Imola and the Pescara road course. The Tuscan circuit, north of Florence, has been a fixture on the MotoGP calendar and is also used by Ferrari for testing and other races. “To be able to celebrate an extraordinary anniversary like the 1,000th grand prix for Scuderia Ferrari at our own home at Mugello is an incredible opportunity,” said Ferrari team boss Mattia Binotto. “Mugello is not just one of the most spectacular and challenging tracks for drivers and cars, it is also a structure that has made sustainability one of its priorities.” Imola, which hosted the San Marino Grand Prix up to 2006, could yet feature on the 2020 calendar if other races are cancelled.

AUDIO: We Can’t Afford To Lose To Nigeria – Cameroon Coach, Hugo Broos

first_imgCameroon coach Hugo Broos has said the African Champions cannot afford to lose against Nigeria in a double-header 2018 World Cup qualifying match as that will mean elimination from the race to be in Russia for the Mundial.The Indomitable Lions are guests of the Super Eagles on Friday in a highly-anticipated clash in Uyo before the reverse fixture three days later in Yaounde on Monday.Speaking at a pre-match press conference on Thursday, the 65-year old Belgian disclosed that his target is to grab a minimum of 4points from the six at stake against Nigeria but admitted that it will be difficult to achieve.“I think it is first of all; a very difficult game because we are playing against a good opponent that started well in the elimination games for the (2018) World Cup,” Broos, who led Cameroon to the 2017 AFCON title said.“Secondly, we are in the situation where we know before the game that losing points against Nigeria is elimination from the World Cup.So in those two games on Friday and Monday, we need at least four to six points. If we lose, it is finished.“We know what to do. One side is simple: don’t lose and win once. But at the other side, it is very difficult because for now, the pressure is ours. We have to win and this is not so easy but I’m very confident because my team is ready to play those two important games beginning tomorrow (Friday). We will try to win it (the two games).”Nigeria lead Group B with 6 points, 4 better than second-placed Cameroon who they face on Friday and Monday in Uyo and Yaounde respectively. Algeria and Zambia with a solitary point apiece, are the other teams in the Group.Eventual group winners will advance to the 2018 World Cup in Russia.Audio Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.RelatedAUDIO: Cameroon Coach Admits Losing To A Better Nigerian SideSeptember 2, 2017In “Africa”Hugo Broos Still In Charge Of Cameroon National Team, Laughs Over Resignation RumoursSeptember 2, 2017In “Africa”2018 World Cup Qualifier: FOURmidable Eagles Stay Top After Trashing Cameroon In UyoSeptember 1, 2017In “National Team”last_img read more
