Nigerian pop star Wizkid can’t seem to stay clear of controversies….

The 21-year-old in the last one year has risen to the very top of celeb status winning awards and cashing in on the biggest shows but then he’s had to deal with a career plagued by endless controversies.

Well, his fans don’t really mind. Even a recent video posted on YouTube last night February 6, 2012 where the EME act sings about ‘smoking Marijuana everyday’ doesn’t seem to bother them.

Weed is made by GOD so wats y’all p hun?‘, a comment read.

Everyday we dey smoke marijuana..but God bless you!”..lmfao,this nigga too chilled‘, another comment reads.

Some others have however frowned at Wizkid’s ‘declaration’; another comment reads.

Madonna with her adopted kids

American pop icon, Madonna is sharing a bit about her private life on the cover of People Magazine.

The mother of six, who co-founded Raising Malawi, a non-profit that provides help for Malawian orphans and children discussed the emotional journey and challenges she faced while trying to adopt.

She brought son David, 11, home from Malawi in 2008, a baby battling with both pneumonia and malaria who she instantly connected with.

‘Every newspaper said I kidnapped him, in my mind, I was thinking, ‘Wait a minute. I’m trying to save somebody’s life. Why are you all s—-ing on me right now?’ I did everything by the book.’

It was a ‘real low point’ said Madonna, revealing she would always cry herself to sleep after it happened.

She encountered difficulties adopting them but eventually got past them

The singer recently split from ex-husband, Guy Ritchie, and tried to adopt Mercy, 11, which was more difficult. The Malawian officials said she was ‘not capable of raising a child’ but eventually she succeeded and brought Mercy home in 2009.

And just this year, Madonna adopted five-year-old orphaned twins, Estere and Stella, whom she met years ago, a process she described as stressful.

‘Because I’m a public figure, people don’t want to be perceived as giving me any kind of special treatment, so I get the hard road.’
