‘MTV, this is such an amazing night, it’s such an amazing moment in my career,’ Rihanna started off her speech. ‘When I think about the Vanguard Award and receiving this tonight, all I could think of was my country. They’re gonna be so proud, this is the first Vanguard to land anywhere close to my country,’ she said.

‘And so, you know my success, it started as my dream. But now my success is not my own.  It’s my family’s, it’s my fan’s, it’s my country’s, it’s the Caribbean as a whole, it’s women, it’s black women, so many people feel like their little piece is such a major part of this puzzle, and I have to thank you guys for supporting me over and over.

‘Thank you to every director whose taken a chance on me, and a chance with my crazy ideas, there’s just so much growth that has happened over the last eleven years, and I can’t believe I’m receiving a Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at 28 years old.

‘It’s crazy. And I have so many people to thank, I mean, from the very beginning. Evan and Carl, from SRP, you guys believed in me, you brought me straight to Jay-Z’s office, where I met Jay, Tata, L.A. Reid, Jay Brown, my whole publicity team, my grandpeeps, so many people, man, they write with me from day to day.

‘And my best friends, they never left me. They actually followed my a** all the way to America, gettin’ on my d*amn nerves.  They here right now, just witnessing this.

‘This is a big moment. Thank you to Drake, for that amazing speech. Thank you to MTV, I had so much fun! Good night!’

The songbird then left the stage hand-in-hand with Drake, but not before appearing to share another kiss with him.

Nollywood actress Ruth Kadiri is raising awareness concerning the lack of essential vaccines for children in some Nigerian hospitals. Kadiri recently shared her experience on Instagram. She revealed that she took her daughter to the hospital for routine vaccinations but was turned away due to a shortage. The specific vaccines her daughter needed were for cholera, measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella (chickenpox).

She wrote,

“My nurse just informed me that there are no vaccines for babies at the hospital!!! Mothers, are you facing the same Vaccination issues? Federal Government, please look into this. My daughter needs her immunization. One year and counting.”

A post shared by Ruth Kadiri Ezerika (@ruthkadiri)

This encounter prompted Ruth Kadiri to use her platform to call on the Nigerian government to intervene. Vaccines play a crucial role in protecting children from preventable diseases, and their absence can have serious consequences.

By sharing her story, Kadiri is hoping to shed light on this public health issue and urge the authorities to take action. This will ensure these vital vaccines are readily available for all children in Nigeria.

The MMR vaccine is a superhero, protecting children from four nasty diseases: measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella (chickenpox). To make sure this protection is extra strong, it’s actually given in two doses.

The first dose is typically given to babies between 9 and 15 months old. Then, to ensure long-lasting immunity, a second dose is given when they are between 15 months and 6 years old. There needs to be at least a 4-week wait between the two doses for them to work best.

I love criticism and feedback because it helps you to become a better actor. You can’t be an actor if you’re not open to criticism,” he said.
