YOU DON’T NEED A SENSIBLE SONG TO BE NOMINATED FOR THE GRAMMYS – Tulenkey

Rapper, Tulenkey has shared some insights into the issue of Ghanaian musicians not getting nominations in the Grammys like their Nigerian counterparts.

Whilst a section of Ghanaians claim Ghanaians are not being nominated because the message in their songs are weak, Tulenkey holds a contrary view.

According to the ‘Fvck Boys’ hitmaker, it’s not sensible songs that gets an artist the nod at the Grammys as some people are projecting.

I wouldn’t say we don’t produce meaningful songs. However, you don’t need a meaningful song to be nominated for the Grammys, there are a lot of things involved, the record label you are signed on to and the plugs you have before the music itself,” he explained.

To reinforce his stance further, Tulenkey cited Burna Boy from Nigeria mentioning that his Grammy success was a result of his affiliation to a known and powerful record label in the Global music fraternity.

Burna Boy was preaching against big record labels and got nominated for the Grammys but did not win the award. He signed under P Diddy’s record label the next year who promised him a Grammy award and the world music album and he got it. So, we shouldn’t be fooled it’s not all about the songs, he added.

COURT ISSUES BENCH WARRANT FOR THE ARREST OF SINGER, FANTANA’S MOTHER

The Sekondi High Court has issued a bench warrant for the arrest of the Member of Parliament for Jomoro, Dorcas Affo-Toffey, who happens to be the mother of Singer

The commercial division of the High Court issued the warrant for the lawmaker to be arrested for disrespecting the law court over dual-citizenship.

The warrant followed her absence from the hearing of a contempt case against her on Monday morning, December 6, 2021.

According to the presiding judge, Her Ladyship Sedina Agbemeve, the warrant was issued because Dorcas Affo-Toffey failed to produce evidence of the renouncement of her Ivorian citizenship.

Earlier, the court ordered the NDC MP to produce documents that backs her claims that she renounced her Ivory Coast citizenship before contesting as a Member of Parliament in Ghana.

But Dorcas Affo-Toffey challenged the ruling by the Sekondi High Court asking her to produce evidence of her renounced dual citizenship in court.

Lawyers of the lawmaker are appealing to the court to quash the orders by the Sekondi High Court judge, Justice Dr. Richmond Osei Kyere, arguing that he “wrongly exercised its discretion in ordering the Appellant [Mrs. Affo-Toffey] to produce her certificate of renunciation of Ivorian Citizenship or any document evidencing renunciation of Ivorian Citizenship to when the Petitioner failed to establish the necessity for the production of the certificate of renunciation of citizenship or document evidencing renunciation of citizenship.”

The contempt case was filed against her by one Joshua Emuah Kofie from Nuba-Mpataba in the Jomoro Constituency when the MP allegedly failed to appear before the Registrar of the court to produce documents evidencing her renunciation of Ivorian citizenship as ordered by a Sekondi High Court.

In his affidavit in support, the petitioner had noted that on  June 22, 2021, a Sekondi High Court ordered the respondent to within 10 days produce for inspection and copying of the renunciation certificate of her Ivorian citizenship or any document evidencing renunciation of her Ivorian citizenship.

Joshua Emuah Kofie averred that before the expiration of the 10 days, the respondent appealed against the ruling of the court and followed it up with a motion for stay of execution pending appeal before the Court of Appeal in Cape Coast in the Central Region.

The petitioner noted that the Court of Appeal on July 26, 2021, unanimously dismissed the MP’s motion for stay of execution pending appeal.

The affidavit stated that with the view to obtaining compliance of the High Court ruling, the Registrar of the court served hearing notices on the parties to appear before him on September 23, 2021 for production, inspection and copying of the documents, as ordered by the High Court.

It indicated that the respondent failed or refused to turn up before the Registrar as summoned and has also failed to produce the document at any other forum for any inspection and copying as ordered.

The affidavit in support added that the respondent even did not dignify the court with a letter explaining her inability or unwillingness to comply with the order as if same ought to die a natural death.

“I believe the action by the respondent is deliberately calculated by her to tell the entire world that she has absolutely no regard for the authority of the court,” the petitioner stated.

The petitioner therefore, prayed the court to commit the respondent for contempt of court to deter her and the public at large, for any such acts that undermine the authority and dignity of the court.

In her affidavit in opposition challenging the contempt against her, the Jomoro MP had indicated that the applicant had failed to demonstrate any conduct on her part that which constituted contempt of court in terms of prejudicing or impending proceedings before the court.

She said she had so much respect for the honourable court and that she would not do anything to bring the administration of justice into disrepute, public ridicule or opprobrium.

She stated that her inability to be present in court as directed by the Registrar cannot be construed as not dignifying the court.

“I was attending to Parliamentary duties and out of inadvertence could not inform the Registrar of the court of my inability to be available for inspection of documents,” she stated in her affidavit in opposition.

She added that her appeal and subsequent application for stay of execution against the order of the High Court at the Court of Appeal was the intervening factor in terms of not complying with the order of the court within the 10 days period, saying “and that it is never deliberate or intentional on my part to bring the administration of justice into disrepute.”

“That as a member of the legislature which is a coordinate arm of the government, I will not do anything that will undermine or seek to undermine the judiciary,” she had added when challenging the contempt application.

She, therefore, prayed the court that the application should not be granted in the interest of justice.

MP Absent Again

The case was scheduled to be heard at the Sekondi High Court, Commercial Division yesterday, December 6, 2021. However, the MP who had already filed her response to the contempt, was absent and was not represented by any of her counsel.

Lead counsel for the applicant, Frank Davies, therefore, prayed the court to issue the bench warrant for the arrest of the MP because he said she was showing disrespect to the court by being absent.

Justice Sedina Agbemava subsequently issued the bench warrant for the arrest of the MP and adjourned the case to Thursday, December 9.

Another Issue

Meanwhile, a Sekondi High Court presided over by Justice Dr. Osei-Hwere has set December 20, 2021 to rule on an application filed by the Jomoro MP to make some amendment in her affidavit in the substantive case.

Joshua Emuah Kofie is challenging Dorcas Toffey, to produce evidence of her renounced dual citizenship in court.

According to the applicant, the MP was not qualified to contest as the people’s representative in the country’s legislative assembly.

When the case was called yesterday, the MP was represented by one Emmanuel Venle.

Her counsel, Ebo Donkor, standing in for Edudzi Tamakloe, insisted that the court had the discretion to grant the application, but lawyer for the applicant, Bright Okyere Agyekum prayed the court not to exercise that discretion since pleadings had been closed.

‘THE HYPOCRISY’ – A Plus Descends On Sarkodie For Going Soft On Akufo-Adoo But Hard On Mahama

Popular social commentator, A-Plus has chided rapper, Sarkodie over his recent comment where he lamented about the harsh living conditions in Ghana.

You would recall that on Monday, December 6,  Sarkodie took to his Twitter page on December 6, 2021, to share his thoughts on the hikes in fuel prices that has necessitated commercial drivers to embark on a strike.

“The people are going through it!!! We always do!!! All we ask for is the right environment to hustle/ be productive,” the Sakcess label boss earlier wrote.

The Sarkcess Music CEO’s comment comes on the back of criticisms on social media where many accused him of being silent over the country’s hardships and somewhat contributing to it with his ‘Nana toaso’ statement during the 2020 general elections.

But after sharing his views on the fuel hikes on Twitter, Ghanaians dug a post from Sarkodie sometime in 2013 where he registered similar complaints against the Mahama-led administration in a seemingly harsh approach.

Wow fuel prices go up! Smh. Paying Mahama a visit this evening.” his comments read.

It was in this light that A-Plus after a careful comparison of Sarkodie’s tweets during the era of both governments lambasted the rapper for his subtle way of criticising the NPP government .

The hypocrisy. During John Mahama time as president the hardship was caused by his incompetence abi? Now there is serious hardship under Akufo Addo, instead of telling him the truth you added “we always do” to make you look good before them. When you spoke about hardship under John Mahama didn’t “we always do?” Or we were living in San Diego before he became president?” A-Plus stated.

I WILL PERSONALLY CAMPAIGN AND VOTE FOR IGP DAMPARE IF HE STANDS FOR PRESIDENT – Abeiku Santana

It appears, seasoned radio broadcaster and tour expert, Abeiku Aggrey Santana is impressed and satisfied with the performance of the new Inspector General of Police, Dr. George Akufo Dampare as he has tipped him as a man with the potentials of the president.

In one of his radio sessions, Abeiku Santana heaped praises on the IGP for supporting citizens when commercial drivers went on a sit-down strike over the high increase in prices of fuel.

The Ghana Police Service under the leadership of the IGP Dr George Akuffo Dampare on Monday, 6th December 2021 made available buses to assist stranded commuters during the nationwide strike.

Abeiku Santana sees the move by the IGP as a laudable one and he declared that he would personally campaign and vote for him should he decide to run for Presidency after his retirement.

According to Abeiku Santana, he has come to respect the Ghana Police Service since the new IGP put measures in place to make the service regain its lost credibility.
