Zlatan Ibrahimovic spotted chilling on Maltese registered super yacht

Swedish professional footballer and AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic was spotted chilling on a super yacht registered in Malta. 

Ibrahimovic reportedly owned the Riva Corsaro yacht called ‘Unknown’, with the vessel costing somewhere up to €10 million. Those numbers come nowhere near Ibrahimovic’s own net worth, which is estimated to stand at around $ 190 million.

The yacht is suspected to be 34.36 metres long with a beam of 7.70 metres. It is allegedly able to fit up to ten guests, as well as seen crew members, with five rooms and a master suite on the main deck. Another two VIP suites and two twin cabins are also part of the vessel’s infrastructure. 

It was reported earlier in July 2022 that a total of 1,030 super yachts around the world now don the Maltese flag after Transport Minister Aaron Farrugia revealed that the country registered a record 51% in registrations.

TikTok star Khaby Lame officially an Italian citizen after 21 years living there

Khaby Lame, the most followed TikTok user in the world, has officially been granted Italian citizenship after 21 years of living in the country.

The 22-year-old social media comedian was born in Senegal but lived in Italy since the age of one. The citizenship was awarded to lame on 17th August, but the TikToker said that he had always felt Italian.

Lame was handed the citizenship during a ceremony in his hometown of Chivasso, and says that he feels a great responsibility for the oath that he took.

Lame had turned to the platform after losing his job in a factory when Italy went into lockdown at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. He went on to attract around 150 million followers, all whilst not uttering a single word. 

He was notified of the citizenship by the Italian interior ministry on June 8th, just weeks before overtaking Charli D’Amelio as the world’s top TikTok user. 

The citizenship comes amid a political debate in the country whether to grant citizenship at birth to children born in Italy to foreign parents, regardless of the parents’ citizenship. This would bring Italy into line with other European countries, as currently, kids born in Italy to foreign parents can only apply from the age of 18.

Għanja tal-Poplu team & winners receive praise from Minister Owen Bonnici

Minister for National Heritage, Arts & Local Government Owen Bonnici took to Facebook to share a moment of praise towards the organisers, winners, authors and composers behind the 46th edition of Malta’s own Għanja tal-Poplu after what is considered to be a very successful edition.

The popular Maltese song contest took place on July 30 in Pjazza Teatru Rjal, with the Malta Concert Orchestra providing the night’s musical serenade under the direction of Mro Joe Brown. The festival was presented by Valerie Vella and televised on TVM, welcoming 131 musical entrants.

Alexia Micallef’s ‘Fil-Kexxun’, written by Lon Kirkop, took home gold for this year’s edition, speaking about the difficulties of individuals with anorexia whilst offering some courageous sentiments. Micallef also bagged the Enzo Gusman prize for best interpretation.

Marija Bellia’s ‘Ismi’, written by Iona Dalli and Bellia herself, took home second place, addressing the brutal rape and murder of Pauline Dembska towards the beginning of this year whilst also touching upon topics of femicide, domestic violence, rape and everything that has to do with the horrors faced by women in today’s society. Thanks to her chilling interpretation, Bellia also took home the prize for best singer-songwriter.

Local group MARA secured third place with their song ‘Ħelu Manna’ written by Emil Calleja Bayliss and Philip Vella. The song’s celebration of grandparent’s sweet delights put a smile on many people’s faces and certainly caught the attention of many viewers.

The prize for best social theme went to Joe Julian Farrugia for his song ‘Mr X’, interpreted by Philip Vella. The song speaks of a recent case in Malta, where an individual was reported missing without anyone knowing his name. Meanwhile, għana singer Tony Camilleri was presented with the ‘L-Għanja Li Tibqa’ prize for his outstanding contribution to Maltese music.

L-Għanja tal-Poplu is supported by the Malta Arts Council and the Valletta Cultural Agency.

Congratulations to all performers!
