DJ Cuppy endorses UK’s Labour Party ahead of July 4 election

Published

DJ Cuppy has declared her support for Keir Starmer, the British politician, ahead of the UK elections on July 4.

In May, Rishi Sunak, the UK prime minister, announced that he would dissolve the parliament and call a general election.

Starmer is the UK Labour Party’s candidate for prime minister in the elections.

In a social media post on Monday, Cuppy shared photos of herself with Starmer and his wife Victoria Alexander in London.

In the accompanying caption, she emphasised the need for change while urging citizens to vote for Starmer.

“While it’s unlike me to pick a side (and yes, no political party is perfect), sometimes a change is necessary,” she said.

“In this country, your voice matters. So get involved and make a difference this Thursday.”

Labour and the Conservatives are the two political parties that have dominated the UK in the 20th and 21st centuries.

The Conservatives are currently led by Rishi Sunak, who took over from Liz Truss in October 2022.

The party has been in power for the past 14 years, appointing five different prime ministers.

On the other hand, the last Labour government was led by Gordon Brown, who led the UK from 2007 to 2010.

Erica laments after her business class ticket gets downgraded to economy

Big Brother Naija star Erica has taken to Instagram to call out an airport staff whom she claimed downgraded her business class ticket without her knowledge.

In the late hours of July 16, 2024, the reality TV star went on Instagram Live to passionately narrate the incident to her followers. “His name is Stanley and he’s from British Airways,” she began. “I paid for business class and they are trying to downgrade me to economy and I didn’t come late.”

Erica expressed her frustration and alleged unfair treatment. “What happened before? I wasn’t recording; I was on my own and then you called a uniformed person on me and said I was recording,” she recounted. “Now that I’m recording, even if you guys want to do anything to me, if you want to shoot me, everybody can see what you’re doing. Let me see what you guys want to do.”

During the livestream, she was seen surrounded by airport staff and men in uniform trying to calm her down; however, she reminded them of the thousands of followers witnessing the injustice via her livestream.

She added, “You have not seen the mad side of me in four years and now it’s out. I’ve been nice since and the niceness isn’t getting me anywhere but now I have to be nasty.”

Standing her ground, she told the airport staff to revert her ticket to business class, which she initially paid for.

She asserted, “Don’t bring problems my way and I won’t bring problems your way. Now you’re telling me, please. I came here all nice and you told me that you wanted to put me on economy. What the fuck? Did you all not collect the money? Give me what I paid for.”

The 66-year-old actor — famous for playing the role of a traditionalist in Yoruba movies — recently hosted a TikTok live session wherein he engaged with his fans.

In a now-trending video, Abija sought financial assistance from his followers while praying for them. He also appreciated those who donated money to his bank account.

“We will send it now Larry Larry. We will send it to the comment section. You will not be trapped by the evil people of this world. You will not live alone,” he said in the video.

“You will grow old. Larry you will grow in sound health. I have sent the account details to the comment section of Baba Legba. I appreciate you.

“You will also not beg to survive. The real Igbalaye, thank you. You will not suffer in life. The account is in the comment section posted by Baba Legba. Thank you, everyone.”

However, the actor did not reveal why he was begging for money. In the past years, several actors have sought financial assistance online, specifically for health reasons.

In mid-2020, the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) signed an MoU with Medicard Health Management, a health services provider, to end the practice of soliciting funds for medical emergencies among its members and independent Nollywood actors.
