Covid-19: Japan's Fuji Rock Festival cancelled due to pandemic

Japan’s biggest annual music event, Fuji Rock Festival, will be cancelled for the first time ever due to the coronavirus pandemic, organisers said, disappointing thousands of rock-and-roll fans who flock to the outdoor festivities every year.

Since its inception in 1997, headliners at the event have included The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, The Cure and Kendrick Lamar.

Last year, the event held in the summer, attracted 130,000 people over four days.

“We had hoped the pandemic would abate in time to hold this summer’s festival as scheduled and were moving forward with planning,” the organisers said on their website.

They apologized for taking so long to inform everyone of the decision.

“Fuji Rock” and “Complete Cancellation” were among the top-trending topics on Twitter after organisers made the announcement.

“I saw the words ‘complete cancellation’ and thought it was about the Olympics,” lamented Twitter user @taako_chako. “It’s about Fuji Rock? Such a shame.”

Japan last month lifted its state of emergency but strict inbound travel restrictions remain in place, with most non-Japanese nationals not allowed in.

My goal is to remain chubby, sexy and healthy – Eniola Badmus

Published

on

Nollywood actress and movie producer, Eniola Badmus has disclosed in an interview she said that she does not want to be fat and unhealthy.

Although Eniola is someone who has always been proud of being a plus-size and never allowed her size to slow down her style, she has disclosed that her goal is to remain chubby, sexy, and healthy.

When asked if and why she wants to lose weight, the 42-year-old said “I didn’t initially decide to go on a weight loss journey; it chose me.

“It all started when I put up a post a while back about weight loss companies using slim people to promote their products and services.”

“I told them to use me if truly their products work. A lot of them picked up the challenge but I was able to settle with the ‘deshapeables’. I decided to work with them because I like their plan and I hope it would work. “

The dark-skinned talented tv goddess also mentioned that if she is not scared if her weight loss would affect her fame.

According to her, she does not plan to go slim. In her words “In fairness, I really can’t tell if losing weight would help my brand because with or without losing weight, I’m Eniola Badmus. If this works, people would just see the new body on me”.

“However, it’s not going to be a total transformation because I still want to be a chubby girl; not slim. The goal is to be chubby but sexier.”

“Maybe like losing three sizes. People should not think that I would be a shadow of who they know. I’m only doing this because I want to. No matter how much we shout about body positivity, one would still have to be on a diet. One would have to watch what one eats and exercise.”

She also said:

“I don’t want to be plus-size and unhealthy. I might not work-out like fitness enthusiasts but I try to keep fit. For clarity’s sake, I didn’t and don’t bend to societal pressure. I have very thick skin and like to do whatever suites me at any particular time. The idea is to see what I would look like afterward. There are some clothes I feel like wearing but can’t wear them till I lose weight. I still belong to the ‘fat girls association”.
