“SARKODIE AND KWAW KESE ARE POOR” – Shatta Wale

Ghana’s acclaimed Dancehall King Shatta Wale has stated with strong emphasis that Rappers Sarkodie and Kwaw Kese are currently very poor financially and they are refusing to accept that publicly.

The Zylofon Signee has described his colleague musicians Sarkodie, and Kwaw Kese as “Very Poor”.

Speaking on Kumasi-based Luv FM, the ‘Gringo’ hit maker said many so-called A-rated artistes are poor but do not want the public to know.

He said the Ghana music industry has a big problem, which is that artistes are paid lesser wages for performances.

“I am talking about the problem that it is in the music industry that they know it’s a problem which they don’t want people to know, because when people know that right now Kwaw Kese is very poor, Sarkodie is poor….” He said.

He continued to say that..“Even Stonebwoy, Stonebwoy is on my label so at least, he gets some cash for there. He gets some Benz, 1,2,3..4. But the rest of them are poor and I am saying the poor because it is very very serious.”

According to him, he will continue to fight the system until Ghanaian artistes are paid well for their performances. Shatta Wale’s latest ‘attacks’ come on the back of a previous rant against the aforementioned artistes.

Shatta Wale yesterday, September 22,2018 held a press conference to unveil the cover art for his upcoming ‘Reign’ album at the Kumasi City Mall. ‘The Reign’, is the third album for Shatta Wale and the first under Zylofon Music label with 17 tracks produced by Mogbeatz, Baddoneh, ShawerzEbiem and DJ Milzey.

ESHUN EXPOSES WENDY SHAY

Highlife musician eShun has complained about how Ruff Town Records signee Wendy Shay ignored her when she tried reaching out to her.

Speaking on e.TV Ghana, the songstress explained how she tried reaching out to her colleague, Wendy after she was misquoted to have called the latter talentless.

“I tried reaching out to you, Wendy Shay, and you didn’t say anything. I don’t know whether it was Bullet who told you not to speak to me. I sent her a DM [Direct Message], so let’s just assume she hasn’t seen it,” she said.

The host Foster Romanus then tried to find out if she did more after the direct message she sent to get her attention.

“I actually wrote a whole essay about it on my timeline on Instagram explaining what I actually said or what I meant and I tagged her and everybody kept tagging her so I’m sure she has really seen it,” she stated.

eShun is said to have stated that the ‘Uber Driver’ hitmaker is talentless, but she refuted that and gave what she actually said thus:

“No, I never said that I think she’s beautiful and when they asked me, these were my exact words, I think Wendy Shay is very talented, with the help of a coach, she’ll be even better…”

“Wendy, you’re talented when you get a coach you will be even better, even me who has gone through ‘Mentor’, ‘Project Fame’, if I get a coach today, I’ll grab him or her and be better,” she stated.

NEGATIVE STORIES MAKES ME HAPPY – Wendy Shay

Some celebrities will do anything they can to make sure they avoid getting in the news for negative reasons as they believe it can ruin their career but Uber Driverhitmaker, Wendy Shay is the opposite as she thrives on negtaive stories about her.

According to the Afrobeats musician, negative stories make her feel relevant. “I feel very important when negative stories are written about me because it makes me feel I am doing something great. 

“If I was not that important, no one would have said anything about me. It really hurts if you are doing something wonderful and no one is talking about you,” she told Graphic Showbiz recently.

She said although the negative things said about her are not true, she takes everything in good faith because she expected that to happen.

“As a showbiz person, I knew such things will happen but none of the things said about me for example, me wearing the same weave for nine months and continually wearing some particular shoes are true,” she said.

She is sexy and has the curves that men like but Wendy Shay, who wants to make a mark in the music industry says men should stay away for now because she want to focus on her career.

“Although I get a lot of proposals, I don’t think I am ready for a relationship right now because my music career matters most to me at the moment.

“I am 22 years old and I have time to achieve big things in my music career, maybe relationships or marriage can come later,” she stated.

With songs like Uber DriverBedroom Commando and recently Astalavista doing the magic for her, Wendy Shay says she sees herself winning Grammys in the next five years.

According to her, the sky is her limit and with the great team she has, she is very positive that she will achieve great results in no time.

“It feels good to work with a record label which understands you and knows your direction. When both parties understand each other, attaining your goals is very quick and easy,” she said.

Wendy Shay expressed gratitude to her manager Bullet and the entire Rufftown Records label for spotting the talent in her.

KWAMI SEFA KAYI JOINS CRUSADE FOR LEGALIZATION OF MARIJUANA IN GHANA

Ace broadcaster and host of Peace FM’s “Kokrokoo” Morning Show, Kwami Sefa Kayi has joined the crusade for the legalization of marijuana in Ghana.

The use of marijuana or cannabis, popularly known as wee or the devil’s tobacco is against the laws of the country and any person caught in contact with it is dealt with in the court of law.

Despite countries like Uruguay, the United Kingdom and the United States of America legalizing marijuana for its great value to the socio-economic fabric of these countries, Ghana still sees it as an illegal product which when caught, one could face a jail term of 10 years or more.

However, there is a growing advocacy for a national discourse on the usefulness and possible legalization of the plant.

Seasoned journalist Kwesi Pratt, radio Presenters like Abeiku Santana and Blakk Rasta among others have all called on the Government of Ghana to take a second look at marijuana.

To Kwesi Pratt, Ghana will import wee in 20 years’ time if it is not legalized saying “we’ve seen that it’s useful in the drug market. It is good for hair creams. It is good for body creams and so forth. Why are we not legalizing it? But we’re still using the Police to arrest wee farmers when the real criminals go scot free”.

Also commenting on the issue, the 2016 GJA Journalist of the Year, Sefa Kayi stressed that he is an “ardent advocate for the legalization of marijuana for medicinal and research purposes,” because it serves a good purpose.

He believed the government could put measures in place to control and supervise the use of marijuana, but for it to be outlawed entirely as it stands now, may cost the country hugely in the near future.

According to him, marijuana is useful for medicinal and research purposes, and when put into good use will be a great avenue for socio-economic development.

“I am an advocate for it. So that’s my bias; I am for it…We have what they call social and recreational, that is one leg. I am not for that. There’s a research and medicinal. I am for that. Unfortunately, in our growing up and everything; it’s been social and recreational we’ve looking at. So, we’re programmed to see it as a bad thing but the research and medicinal is a completely different era”, he stated categorically.

“IF YOU TALK ABOUT MY BABY, I WILL COME FOR YOU” – Yvonne Nelson

Ghanaian actress and movie producer Yvonne Nelson has vowed she will go all out to protect her baby daughter, Ryn, from people who say unpleasant things about her.

The actress survived a lot of controversy for getting pregnant for her UK photographer boyfriend, Jamie Roberts, and eventually giving birth to a baby girl.

Many social media commentators and some mainstream media questioned the rationale behind her decision to give birth before getting married and why choosing her photographer boyfriend.

Others simply passed a straight verdict on her decision, describing it as “immoral”.

But hanging out with the 2018 Ghana’s Most Beautiful (GMB) contestants on Tuesday, the award-winning actress indicated that she is personally unfazed about news stories that put her in a bad light.

She stated, however, that she will not take it lightly with people who try to involve her daughter in those stories.

“But I don’t really care about negative stories. I think I’m used to it. People just want to sell their newspapers and whatever, so you just leave them but if you talk about my baby, I will come for you.”

She narrated an instance where she had taken on someone – whose identity she failed to disclose – for making some “unpleasant” commentary about her baby.

“Like the recent one that happened: I don’t want to mention his name but he was talking about the baby,” she told the ladies.

“He kept making very weird comments about her and the last one I just felt it was too much so my lawyer wrote to him and he retracted and apologized.”

She explained that the name of her daughter is a combination of the initials of her boyfriend and her own names – Robert and Yvonne Nelson (RYN) – and that she wants her daughter to have her parents’ names with her wherever she goes.

She used the opportunity to advise the ladies who are vying for the GMB 2018 cash, car and crown never to give up on their pursuits in life even if they fail the first time.

The 10 ladies, who were unveiled Sunday, September 16 at Takoradi,were ushered into the GMB Reality House on Monday and are poised for action.

AFIA SCHWARZENEGGER AND HER EX-HUSBAND’S CASE CLOSED IN COURT

The legal tussle between television host, Valentina Nana Agyeiwaa aka Afia Schwarzenegger and her ex-husband has come to an abrupt conclusion following a decision by the trial court to close the case.

The two are before an Accra Circuit Court after she accused her ex-husband, Lawrence Abrokwa, of recording and distributing her naked video.

The court presided over by Abena Oppong Adjin-Doku was forced to close the case after the prosecution led by Chief Inspector Maxwell Oppong was unable to present a new witness for the trial.

The prosecution has been unable to put before the court a witness to present their side of the story, although the case had been adjourned a couple of times because of that.

At the last sitting before yesterday, the presiding judge had warned the prosecution that she would be left with no choice than to close the prosecution’s case if they are unable to produce their next witness.

When the case was called yesterday, both Afia Schwarzenegger who is the complainant, and the case prosecutor, were nowhere to be found.

No excuse had been given to the court for the absence of the prosecution; Afia and their witness.

Defense lawyer, Anthony Namo, subsequently prayed the court to close the case so that he could file a submission of no case to explain why the accused person should not be called to open his defense.

The presiding judge, Abena Oppong Adjin-Doku recalled telling the prosecution that she would be compelled to close their case if they do not present their next witness at the next court sitting.

She therefore closed the prosecution’s case and gave the defense lawyer up to October 2, 2018 to file his submission of no case. The court will rule on the submission of no case on October 8, 2018.

Background

Lawrence Abrokwa, the ex-husband of Afia Schwarzenegger, is before an Accra Circuit Court for allegedly recording and distributing her naked video.

He was facing five charges including two counts of domestic violence, threat to harm, assault and publication of obscene material.

He pleaded not guilty to all the charges.

But the case took a different turn following a decision by the prosecution, led by Chief Inspector Maxwell Oppong, to amend the charge sheet to include stealing, carrying offensive weapon and causing unlawful damage.

Per the new charges, Afia Schwarzenegger is accusing the former husband of breaking her bedside drawer and stealing an amount of $2,000 and £500

She is also accusing him of taking all the belongings of a man who Afia was allegedly having sexual intercourse with. Although the charges had been amended, Lawrence Abrokwa is to be on his old bail terms of GH¢20,000 with three sureties.

THE PRESSURE ON ME TO MARRY IS EMOTIONALLY STRESSFUL – Gloria Sarfo

Actress Gloria Sarfo has disclosed that the pressure from friends and especially family members for her to get married is stressing her emotionally.

Gloria who is also a TV Presenter on Angel TV is begging all who have been asking her to get married to slow down, because she is not happy about the unsolicited question.

The Efiewura star, says the pressure on her to get married is tearing her apart and has gone public asking, especially society, to bear with her as at the right time, she would find herself her own man to walk down the aisle with.

Gloria argues marriage is an endless journey and so she wants to get ready mentally, physically, spiritually, before settling down. The talented actress who has starred in both Twi and English Movies said it gets embarrassing when occasionally people question when she is going to get married.

According to her, the pressure gets even worse, when she attends family meetings and gatherings, family members keep piling up the pressure.

She said, she finds herself in a peculiar situation because her younger sister is already married and coupled with the fact that she has a big body, anytime she attends some of these family gatherings, she is treated as though she is pass marriage.

Gloria, who doubles as a television presenter said society, religion and others, have made it so difficult for women who get to certain age bracket and are not married to feel incomplete.

She said today’s marriage is not like that of old and so one needs to psych herself, before entering because it comes with a lot of cost, demands and preparedness.

“Me personally, the one after me is married, so when it gets to the gatherings and family meetings and all that, chalie, the bashing is too much everybody”.

“Especially, when you are fortunate and have good big body like me….. eei you are growing ooo, you are growing, it is emotionally stressful. The society, the pressure is too much, the pressure is too much on me”, she decried.

Gloria was part of a panel that discussed the topic ‘30andunmarried’ on Ghone television ‘Late Afternoon Show’ hosted by Berla Mundi last Friday.
