Last week, Nigerian music stars Patoranking and King Promise thrilled their fans at the meet and greet club party held at Shooters Lounge, and the Nyarugenge Intermediate Court on Friday acquitted dancer Thierry Ishimwe, known as Titi Brown, of defilement charges. The New Times highlights more stories that made headlines last week in local showbiz. Dancer Titi Brown acquitted, court rules out damages payment The Nyarugenge Intermediate Court on November 10, acquitted dancer Thierry Ishimwe, known as Titi Brown, of defilement charges. According to the verdict, the court determined that a victim identified as M.J., had been raped and later became pregnant. However, the decision to acquit Ishimwe was reached due to the absence of concrete evidence beyond M.J.'s testimony to conclusively link Ishimwe to the rape and pregnancy. Titi’s release from prison was welcomed by many of his fans who missed his choreography videos.

The beauty pageant was suspended last year following the arrest of Prince Kid, the brains behind the event, who was sentenced to five years in prison last month, for rape and soliciting sexual favours towards contestants in the pageant. Kundwa said that while it was a good move to hold individuals responsible for the problems the competition has been facing to account, a lot still needs to be done to revive the competition and give it a more female-friendly structure. She is the first contestant of the competition to comment on the saga.
