MONROVIA, Liberia (AP) - Liberian police on Monday formally charged the 61-year-old son of the country's former president, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, in connection with the unlawful overprinting of local currency worth millions of U.S. dollars.

Kobazzie just dropped the most anticipated remix to Bounce, featuring Davido, and the reviews from fans are 50/50 thumbs up and downs down. Unlike most Liberian songs when featuring an international artist, Davido did not outshined Kobazzie on the remix. His verse was shorter like it should be, a little weaker like it should be, giving Kobazzie all of the shine. I'm sure Davido could have gone harder, and stronger on his verse, but I believe that he was more interested in supporting Kobazzie than to out do him on his own track. That is a boss move, a superstar move and role model move. I am all for it. Both versions of the song are amazing. The original is better to some than others, the remix is better to some than others, and for some, including myself, the qualities are the same, and most importantly, Davido did not outshine Kobazzie. That is gracefully and I dig that. Check out the song and let us know what you think.
