LeBron James Named Highest-Paid Athlete In 2022

Published

on

LeBron James, NBA superstar, has been named the highest-paid athlete in 2022.

The 37-year-old Los Angeles Lakers baller topped Sportico’s list of the highest-paid athletes in the last year, earning a reported $127 million in salary and endorsements to beat out international soccer icons Lionel Messi ($122 million) and Cristiano Ronaldo ($115 million).

James earned $41 million from the Lakers while ranking second in scoring with 28.5 points per game in 2021-22, but it was his side hustle that propelled him to the top.

The 18-time NBA All-Nike Star’s contract remains one of the most visible in sports, but he’s also signed deals with Walmart, GMC, AT&T, and PepsiCo, all of which he can promote to his 200 million social media followers.

There are also brands in which he has personally invested, such as Calm, Ladder/Openfit, and Lobos 1707 tequila.

Finally, there are the businesses that James owns with his partners, such as The SpringHill Company, a seven-year-old media and consulting firm that, according to Sportico, expects to earn more than $100 million by 2022.

James also owns a stake in Liverpool, which plays in the English Premier League, as well as the Boston Red Sox and their home network, NESN.

NBA players dominated the top-100 list, with Stephen Curry ($86.2 million) and Kevin ($85.9 million) ranking sixth and seventh, respectively.

“If Elections Are Held Today, NPP Will Lose” : Deputy Minister

Published

on

Kwaku Ampratwum-Sarpong, Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister, has expressed concern about the electoral fortunes of his party, the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

If elections were held today, he believes the governing party would lose badly to their archrival, the NDC.

Mr Ampratwum-Sarpong has maintained that the NPP’s “breaking the 8” mantra will fail to materialize unless Ghana’s economic hardship is addressed as soon as possible.

“We said we were going to rewrite history and destiny.” We want to get rid of the eight (8). If there is an election today, I will tell you honestly that the NPP will lose badly. Black is black, and red is crimson. I’ll say it and tell you straight.

“I’m on the ground, I know what’s going on, and I hear what my constituents are saying.” Today I’m discussing the topic of the day. Today we face a significant challenge.”

I Speak English That Brings Money : Chairman Wontumi

Published

on

Bernard Antwi-Bosiako, also known as Chairman Wontumi, has refuted claims that he struggles to express himself in English.

Despite attending Prempeh College and studying General Arts in Secondary School, the politician finds it difficult to communicate effectively in the Queen’s language.

However, he claims to be confident in his abilities because he is able to communicate effectively whenever he conducts business.

“…We go to school to make friends and to learn things that will help us in the future,” Mr Boasiako said during an interview on the Delay Show, which aired over the weekend.

I don’t speak useless English, I speak English that would bring in money that would make my workers comfortable and expand my companies, he said.

Wontumi went on to say that the student who had previously topped his General Arts class was now a police officer [working for the state to pay him] while he (Wontumi) was in business [working for himself].

The businessman stated that he had lived in London for years, so speaking English was not a problem for him, but he makes certain that he only expresses himself in places that would be profitable to him.

Elon Musk Accused Of Sexual Assault 

Published

on

Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX, has quickly denied a sexual assault claim made by a former flight attendant, to whom the company allegedly paid $250,000 as part of a severance agreement in 2018.

The alleged victim worked as a crew member on a SpaceX corporate flight, according to one of the flight attendant’s friends. During one of the flights, the attendant told a friend that Musk had asked her for a full body massage in his room, stating that this was not unusual and that SpaceX had encouraged her to get a masseuse license.

Musk, she claims, removed the sheet covering his lower half of his body during the massage, exposing his erect penis while allegedly rubbing her leg. He allegedly offered to buy the attendant a horse in exchange for “doing more.”

The allegations were relayed to Insider by one of the flight attendant’s friends, who was asked to sign a declaration supporting the claims by the attendant’s attorney in 2018.

According to the friend, the flight attendant refused to perform any sexual acts on Musk and was “really upset” after the flight. The friend also claimed that SpaceX reduced the number of shifts she was assigned after the incident, which the attendant interpreted as retaliation.

According to Insider, the attendant complained to SpaceX’s HR department in 2018 that her career had suffered as a result of her refusal. According to reports, the company took the complaint to a mediator rather than a court or arbitrator, and signed the attendant to a $250,000 severance agreement prohibiting her from speaking negatively about Musk or his companies, including SpaceX and Tesla.

Reacting to the accusations were after the report surfaced on Thursday, Elon tweeted that “for the record, those wild accusations are utterly untrue.”

In a separate tweet, Musk states that the “attacks against me should be viewed through a political lens” — though it’s unclear if this is meant to refer to Insider, the whistleblower, or both.
