  2. Germany police hit with Jerusalema dance bill

    Germany's most populous state, North Rhine-Westphalia, says it has had to pay fees to Warner Music after several of its police forces took part in a viral dance challenge.

    The song Jerusalema by South Africa's Master KG spread online last year after groups around the world choreographed it to spread happiness in the time of the pandemic.

    The official video has more than 330 million views on YouTube:

    The penalty to North Rhine-Westphalia, which has not been revealed, has seen some local fire services deleting their videos or cancelling plans to make one, AFP news agency reports quoting Germany's national news agency.

    The move by Warner has sparked sharp criticism on their Facebook page on Monday, with many users accusing the label of "shabby behaviour".

    But the music label has defended its action, France 24 reports.

    "We love the fact that the fans are getting behind 'Jerusalema'. But if organisations in Germany use the song to promote themselves, we think they should secure a dubbing licence," a Warner spokesman told Focus.

    "In these difficult times, it is more important than ever that artists and performers are paid for their music when it is used by third parties to enhance their reputation," the spokesman said.

  3. Naira Marley calls for calm over Valentine's concert cancellation

    Nigerian artist Azeez Fashola popularly known as Naira Marley has broken his silence about the cancellation of a Valentine's Day concert in Cameroon.

    Naira asked his fans to "calm down" saying not all Cameroonians were bad.

    The concert was reportedly cancelled after some Cameroonian artists protested against the Nigerian artist headlining in their home country.

    The venue had been changed twice and the concert was eventually cancelled a few hours to the expected start time.

    A journalist Joey Akan tweeted how police went to both venues to make sure no performances would take place.

    He alleged that there was growing rivalry amongst Nigerian and Cameroonian artists.

    Tanzanian police have confirmed the arrest of one of the country’s controversial bishops after he called for mass protests.

    Bishop Emmaus Mwamaku called on Tanzanians to stage “a voluntary walk” to demand for the setting up of an independent electoral commission and the drafting of a new constitution.

    He planned to stage the protest for eight days in the commercial capital, Dar es Salaam.

    He was arrested hours before he could start the protest, with police saying his plans were illegal and warned others not to join in.

    "it is wrong to hold demonstrations without a permit ... anyone taking to streets will be held accountable by the law," said a city police commander.

    Bishop Mwamaku has been an outspoken critic of President John Magafuli's administration.

    In the October general election he openly supported the opposition party ACT Wazalendo.

    There were complaints of electoral malpractices from the opposition but the electoral commission denied the allegations.
