Just in: Sony announce PS5 event for June 4th.


Sony is officially confirming its next PlayStation 5 event will be held on Thursday, June 4th. The event will begin at 4PM ET / 1PM PT, and Sony is promising “a look at the future of gaming on PlayStation 5.” It will run for “a bit more than an hour,” and feature “a first look at the games you’ll be playing after PlayStation 5 launches this holiday,” according to Jim Ryan, president and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment.

“The games coming to PS5 represent the best in the industry from innovative studios that span the globe. Studios, both larger and smaller, those newer and those more established, all have been hard at work developing games that will showcase the potential of the hardware,” says Ryan. “This digital showcase will run for a bit more than an hour and, for the first time, we will all be together virtually experiencing the excitement together.”

Recent reports suggested Sony would hold a PS5 event a day earlier on June 3rd, focusing mainly on games. Sony is not expected to reveal every detail of the PS5 console at this event, and further events are rumored to be planned for the coming weeks and months. “This is part of our series of PS5 updates and, rest assured, after next week’s showcase, we will still have much to share with you,” explains Ryan.

Sony has so far unveiled PS5 specs, a logo, and a new wireless controller for its next-gen console. Sony has not yet shown off the PS5 console itself, and it’s not clear if that will change at the June 4th event.

The PS5 will feature a custom eight-core AMD Zen 2 CPU clocked at 3.5GHz (variable frequency) and a custom GPU based on AMD’s RDNA 2 architecture hardware that promises 10.28 teraflops and 36 compute units clocked at 2.23GHz (also variable frequency).

A significant part of Sony’s new PlayStation 5 is the proprietary SSD, and it provides 825GB of storage with 5.5GB/s of performance. Epic Games recently provided a stunning Unreal 5 tech demonstration running on the PS5, showing off the loading of cinematic 8K assets and dynamic lighting effects.

The governor in a statement said the confirmation test for the suspected case at Bodija has come back positive.

COVID-19: Postpone Tokyo 2020 – USA swimming urge USOPC


USA Swimming has urged the US Olympic and Paralympic Committee to back the postponement of the 2020 Tokyo Games amid the disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

In a letter to US Olympic and Paralympic Committee (USOPC) chief executive Sarah Hirshland, posted on USA Swimming’s Twitter feed on Friday, swimming federation chief executive Tim Hinchey “respectfully requested” that the USOPC “advocate for the postponement of the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 by one year,” to 2021.


“We urge the USOPC, as a leader within the Olympic Movement, to use its voice and speak up for the athletes,” Hinchey wrote.

USA Swimming made the letter public after the US Olympic chiefs said in a conference call on Friday that more time was needed to determine the fate of the Tokyo Games.


USOPC chairwoman Susanne Lyons said the American governing body agreed with the International Olympic Committee that there was no need for the International Olympic Committee to make an immediate decision.

But USA Swimming said the disruption caused by social distancing protocols and the stay-at-home orders issued in some parts of the United States in a bid to combat the spread of the deadly virus had already proved too disruptive to training.


“As this global pandemic has grown, we have watched our athletes’ worlds be turned upside down and watched them struggle to find ways to continue to prepare and train – many for the biggest competitive opportunity of their lives,” Hinchey wrote.

“Our world-class swimmers are always willing to race anyone, anytime and anywhere; however, pressing forward amidst the global health crisis this summer is not the answer.


“The right and responsible thing to do is to prioritize everyone’s health and safety and appropriately recognize the toll this global pandemic is taking on athletic preparations.

“It has transcended borders and wreaked havoc on entire populations, including those of our respected competitors. Everyone has experienced unimaginable disruptions, mere months before the Olympic Games, which calls into question the authenticity of a level playing field for all.


“Our athletes are under tremendous pressure, stress and anxiety, and their mental health and wellness should be among the highest priorities.”

The United States, long an Olympic swimming powerhouse, won 33 medals in the Rio Olympic pool in 2016.

Their ultra-competitive Olympic trials are scheduled for June 21-28 in Omaha, Nebraska

COVID-19: Elegba festival postponed.


The year 2020 edition of Elegba Festival, scheduled to hold between 24 and 30 March in Ikate-Elegushi Kingdom of Lagos State, has been postponed indefinitely over the outbreak of COVID-19 virus which is currently spreading in the country.

Number of the confirmed cases in the country has hit eleven with one death of an American who came in to Nigeria from Richmond, Virginia, USA.


Oba Saheed Ademola Elegushi (Kusenla III), in a press statement made available to PM NEWS in Lagos on Wednesday, said he, along with his Council of Chiefs, decided to postpone the much awaited event in order to be on the same page with government at both state and federal levels in efforts towards curtailing the spread of the deadly virus.

“This postponement becomes necessary in order to reduce a large gathering of people as advised by the government and which the Elegba festival is synonymous, as thousands of visitors converge at the festival from within and outside of Lagos State; and in view of the new cases in Lagos, it is important that we support the government’s determination to curb the spread of the virus.

“While I share the disappointment of our friends and visitors who have made plans to attend the week-long festival, it is important we prioritise safety of lives over any other consideration”, the Oba said, adding that he would continue to educate people in his kingdom on the best practices necessary to stay safe and curtail the spread of the disease

NSF: Edo state ready to host Nigerian youths – Sport Minister.


Youth and Sports Development Minister, Sunday Dare, who is in Edo State ahead of the National Sports Festival (NSF) to ascertain the level of preparations for the national event, has praised the Edo State government for the turnaround in facilities within a few months, adding that they have raised the bar for hosting of sporting events in Nigeria.

The Festival will be held at various centres in Benin from March 20 to April 4.


Speaking after inspecting the hostel accommodation for athletes in Benin City. Dare said, “We started from the stadium; we looked at a section of the stadium today. We had already looked at the other parts when I said it was 90 per cent ready. When I came the last time it was just rafters for the gym, we have seen that everything is almost set, by Sunday or Monday that place will be fully ready,” the minister explained.

“We have seen the hard court, Ogbe hard court is ready. We have seen the main bowl itself is ready, we will test the tracks by our athletes. It almost means that it is ready. I think we couldn’t ask for more.”


Speaking on the level of preparedness to battle the spread of Corona virus, also known as Covid-19, the Minister said: “I think beyond the bricks-and-mortar, beyond the tracks, the buildings, the hostels, the other thing they have done so well is containing the spread of the virus.

“As we speak, I know they have received 8,500 sanitizers, the total number they’re expecting is 12, 000 sanitizers. As we speak, I know they have designated 15 entry points for screening, so if you’re coming from the North, if you’re coming from Lagos, the first point of call, just like the entry points at the airport, is the screening point. That screening point you also get the package of literature and sanitizers and then you get your accreditation done. One-Stop Shop.

“They have done tremendously well I’m sure tomorrow when they start the daily briefing on medical preparedness for the next six days you will understand the level of work they have done beyond the brick and mortar.”

The minister expressed hope that the competition would throw up talents for the country for future sports events.

COVID-19: Obesere to tour 4 countries in April for ‘Egungun Be Careful’


Abass Akande Obesere, Nigerian veteran singer, has announced a tour of four countries in April for ‘Egungun be Careful’, one of his hit songs.

The Yoruba singer took to his social media page to disclose that the tour will begin from April 1 through 10.


The four countries include Dubai, Kenya, Turkey and U.K respectively.

“Egungun be Careful nights, Dubai, Kenya, Turkey, UK. Egungun is coming to you,” he wrote on Twitter.


The development comes on the heels of growing concerns across the globe over the spread of coronavirus, which has led to the death of over 5,000 people since it broke out in December last year.

It also comes about the same time when some artistes have announced the suspension of their tours to contain the spread of the killer virus.


NobleReporters learnt how Davido suspended the tour for ‘A Good Time’, his 2019 album, on Friday.

In a similar manner, Trevor Noah, South African media, personality suspended live audience recordings of ‘The Daily Show,’ over fears of COVID-19.

Born on January 28, 1965, Obesere came to limelight on the groundswell of controversies, with many often critical of his songs which are considered a “taboo” in the conservative Yoruba community.

COVID-19: Coachella postponed till October.


The 2020 edition of Coachella, one of the largest annual music festivals in the US, has been postponed due to concerns about the coronavirus.

The music festival, which holds annually at the Empire Polo Club situated within Riverside County (RC), recently enlisted Nigeria’s Seun Kuti among its lineup of musicians to perform on stage.


On Wednesday, Goldenvoice, the production company behind both the Coachella festival and Stagecoach Festival, however, released a statement saying that it has postponed the event until October.

The postponement was due to growing public health concerns about the rapidly spreading coronavirus. RC had recently reported its first case of the novel ailment.

While attributing the development to what it described as a “universal uncertainty,” Goldenvoice also said the postponement comes in compliance with a directive from the health authorities in RC.


“At the direction of the County of Riverside and local health authorities, we must sadly confirm the rescheduling of Coachella and Stagecoach due to COVID-19 concerns,” the company wrote.

“While this decision comes at a time of universal uncertainty, we take the safety and health of our guests, staff, and community very seriously.

“We urge everyone to follow the guidelines and protocols put forth by public health officials.”

The event will now run from October 9-11 and October 16-18, while Stagecoach 2020 has been pushed back from April to October 23-25.
