Singapore's mega church City Harvest Church founder, Kong Hee has been arrested and is due to be charged with conspiracy to commit criminal breach of trust, according to the Straits Times.

Ho Yeow Sun (Sun Ho) has had a good music career run since 2002, and has released a number of multi platinum albums, and even appearing at Grammys. She's even done a collaboration with Wyclef Jean.
