Frank Ocean slams grammy award organizers over award boycott

Frank Ocean won't be attending tonight's grammys' and he has really shown he has an axe to grind with the award organizers.

The singer who revealed he considered performing a tribute to the late pop legend, Prince's honor, took to his social media account to slam the event organizers over their 'Album of the Year' choice in 2016.

Here's what he wrote;
"Ok, Ken (and David). As much as I hate to make you guys famous or even respond to you directly. We all die one day and you’re old so fuck it. Yea yea my 2013 performance at the Grammys was absolute shit. Technical difficulties, blah blah. Thanks for the reminder. Very much appreciated. Fuck that performance though.
"You think that’s why I kept my work out of the Grammy process this year? Don’t you think I would’ve wanted to play the show to ‘redeem’ myself if I felt that way? In reality, I actually wanted to participate in honoring Prince on the show but then I figured my best tribute to that man’s legacy would be to continue to be myself out here and to be successful.
"Winning a TV award doesn’t christen me successful. It took me some time to learn that. I bought all my masters back last year in the prime of my career, that’s successful. Blonde sold a million plus without a label, that’s successful. I am young, black, gifted and independent. that’s my tribute. I’ve actually been tuning into CBS around this time of year for a while to see who gets the top honor and you know what’s really not 'great TV’ guys? 1989 getting album of the year over To Pimp A Butterfly. Hands down one of the most 'faulty’ TV moments I’ve seen.

"Believe the people. Believe the ones who’d rather watch select performances from your program on YouTube the day after because your show puts them to sleep. Use the old gramophone to actually listen bro, I’m one of the best alive. And if you’re up for a discussion about the cultural bias and general nerve damage the show you produce suffers from then I’m all for it. Have a good night."

Before now, an interview was granted to Rolling Stone magazine by the Grammy Awards’ creative team, producer Ken Ehrlich and writer David Wild, where Frank Ocean’s decision to boycott this year’s award was discussed.

His performance of “Forest Gump” at the 2013 Grammys, was also called and was tagged “faulty” and “not great TV,” which they concluded might have dissuaded him from performing again.

Pastor arrested for assaulting his wife and children

A Pastor, Christopher Sule, has been arrested for inflicting gruesome injuries on his children and wife. The Pastor who is pursuing his Masters degree in a theological seminary in Jos, Plateau State, assaulted his kids for not reciting what they were taught in school, and also extended same treatment to their mum who came to their rescue.

Mrs Rachel Christopher, who narrated the incident amidst tears, revealed she has been subjected to assaults since they got married, and for the past 3 years, he beats their kids aged eight and six at the slightest provocation.
She noted that her husband has never been really remorseful even after she threatened to pack out of their matrimonial home, with friends and family members intervening.

Pastor Sule's trouble started after the school's management noticed several lacerations on the body of his kids, and then reported to National Security and Civil Defense Corp at Jos South Local Government secretariat, who apprehended him for interrogation.

“My husband was arrested and taken to the local government secretariat, though he has been beating them but the last one was so terrible that I had to struggle with him to rescue the children. But I got the beating of my life in the process. The beating has become so rampant that the people in the neighbourhood no longer intervene,” she said.

“ It is like my husband is under a spell or spiritual attack. Anytime my husband carried out this evil act, he always came back, pleading and telling me to pray for him because he did not know what came upon him. We have fasted and prayed together over this issue”.

Speaking on the incident, Pastor Sule said;
“I don’t know what came upon me, though I have been beating them that way for the past three years. I always regretted my action. By nature I am temperamental, and I need deliverance.”

He also told Sunday Tribune at the Secretariat of Jos North Local Government, where he was taken to, that he flogged them when they could not recollect what they were taught in school. However, he pleaded for mercy, promising to love his children.

Confirming the incident, the chairman of Jos North Local Government, Comrade Jonathan Pwakim, said the council will henceforth collaborate with Child Protection Agency and State Ministry of Women Affairs to enlighten parents on the danger of child abuse.

Comrade Pwakim said Pastor Christopher would be handed to relevant law enforcement agencies for prosecution to serve as a deterrent to others.
