Miss Turkey 2017 loses crown hours after she won the pageant















The winner of Miss Turkey 2017 was on Friday stripped of her crown hours after winning the competition over a controversial tweet.

Itir Esen,18, won the competition in Istanbul on Thursday night and was meant to represent the country in the Miss World competition in China.

Hours later, organisers of the competition forced her to hand back her crown after it emerged she tweeted about a 2016 failed coup aimed at ousting President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

In the already deleted tweet, Esen was said to have compared the bloodshed in her menstrual cycle with that of the 249 people who lost their lives during the failed coup that are now celebrated in Turkey as martyrs.

She wrote:"To celebrate July 15 Martyr's Day, I began the morning by getting my period. I am celebrating the day by bleeding representing the martyrs blood,"

The organisers who saw the tweet after the beauty contest’s results were announced were forced to hold an hours-long meeting to reach a conclusion on the controversial tweet.

In a statement later released by Can Sandikcioglu, the head of Miss Turkey, he confirmed the tweet was posted by Esen.

“The Miss Turkey organisation, whose objective is to promote Turkey in the world and to contribute to its image, cannot accept such a post,” he announced.

Esen’s title was handed to Asli Sumen, who came second and who will now represent Turkey in the Miss World contest in China on November 18.

Taking to Instagram, Esen said her post was not politically motivated.

“I want to say that as an 18-year-old girl, I had no political aims while sharing this post,” she wrote, saying that she only shared her “innocent thoughts during a sensitive time.”

“My family raised me by teaching to respect our homeland and nation. I do not have a character that could show disrespect to our martyrs,” she said.

'Alex Iwobi has to improve' - Arsene Wenger charges Nigerian forward












Arsenal head coach, Arsene Wenger, has urged Nigerian youngster, Alex Iwobi, to add more goals and assists to his game and improve, as he feels the future is bright for the winger, if only he keeps his focus and mentality intact.

Iwobi, since his promotion from the club’s academy has been an integral part of the team, but has scored a miserly five goals in 41 English Premier League games, a situation Wenger doesn't want to see continue for the 21 year old.

“I like the fact that he can play in tight areas, that he turns the game forwards, that he’s very mobile," Wenger told the club’s website.

“We forget sometimes that Alex is still a very young player and that there’s a lot more to come from him.

“There must be a lot more to come from him because he has more personality in the game now.

“We expect him to be more efficient in the final third offensively, because you feel there are goals in there and assists too.

“They have to come out. Add that to the fact that he allows the team to play very well and he will be a top-class player.

Am on my own": Peter Okoye seems to confirm split






Peter and Paul Okoye have been leaving telling posts on social media that hints at a breakup of their group P-Square but they have not come out to confirm anything.

However, Peter's recent post comes close to a confirmation. In Snapchat video, Peter revealed he was in Philadelphia for a solo show - without his brother.





"My name is Mr P," Peter said "As from today, guess what? It's show time, I'm about to go on stage."

He was surrounded by some friends in the snap but noticeably absent was his twin brother, Paul.

VIDEO: Pappy Kojo – No Way








Pappy Kojo delivers his highly anticipated new visuals for his single titled ‘No Way’. ‘No Way’ is Pappy Kojo’s second single off his upcoming EP.

After releasing his first single; M’akoma to critical acclaim, Pappy is back with a very different vibe from what we are used to hearing from him. Aside from the fact that most of the song is in English not Fante(his usual language of choice), he moves away from his usual staccato rap flow to deliver his lyrics in a smooth laid back low key singing voice, we also get to experience a sentimental side of him as he speaks of the ills of stardom and how he has no space in his mind for negative energy.

‘No Way’ has the sound, feel and texture of a House song but the vibe of Afrobeats blended with Dancehall. The producer, GuiltyBeatz’s percussion arrangement is reminiscent of the classic dancehall hit ‘Murder She Wrote’ by Chaka Demus & Pliers, the sweet melodic Highlife guitar riffs coupled with the resounding bass sets the tone for a beautiful sonic fusion.”
