“I NEVER CHEATED ON SISTER DEBBIE” – Medikal

Rapper Medikal has reacted to rumours that he cheated on his ex-girlfriend, Deborah Vanessa aka Sister Debbie.

The rapper announced actress Fella Makafui as his new girlfriend after ditching former girlfriend who is also a musician, Sister Debbie in what came as a surprise to many because the two had dated for years.

In a recent post-breakup interview, Sister Debbie revealed she left Medikal because he had cheated on her many times during their love journey.

But, Medikal described Sister Debbie as a “liar” insisting he never cheated on her as presumed in the public domain.

Speaking on Joy FM’s Drive Time show with Lexis Bill on Monday, Medikal said one of the factors that led to their breakup was because Sister Debbie was paying heed to rumours outside their relationship.

“I never cheated on her. They were just rumours and sometimes when you listen to people too much that’s what happens. Its not something I would like to address. I am not a cheat,” Medikal noted.

Medikal is part of a tall list of entertainers to grace this weekend’s star-studded event, 3 Music Awards, happening live at the Fantasy Dome on March 30, 2018.

“MY LOYALTY FOR YOU WILL FOREVER REMAIN” – Shatta Wale Tells NAM1

Dancehall artiste Shatta Wale has urged Ghanaian musicians to remember embattled Menzgold CEO, Nana Appiah Mensah for the change he brought to the industry.

Shatta in a post on his social media pages Monday said he will forever remain loyal to Nana Appiah (popularly known as NAM 1).

The controversial musician said he really misses NAM1 who is reportedly standing trial in Dubai where he is facing a misdemeanour charge over a US$23 million deal, gone bad.

“No matter the situation Ghana musicians should remember this man came to change our industry and he did ..Nana Appiah Mensah my Loyalty for you will forever remain here ??… My boss, my CEO .. #NAM1 I really miss your presence !!! #Zylofon,” Shatta posted.

On January 2018, Shatta Wale signed a three-year management deal with Zylofon Music, a record label owned by NAM 1’s Zylofon Media. Although the financial details of the deal were not disclosed, unofficial sources said the deal was worth $1.5million.

Other showbiz personalities including Stonebwoy, Becca, Kumi Guitar, Joyce Blessing and actors Toosweet Annan and Benedicta Gafah were also signed by Zylofon Media.

NAM 1 is facing up to two years in Prison after a Dubai-based businessman reported Nana Appiah and eight of his business partners, to the Dubai Police for fraud in May 2018.

AFIA SCHWAR, FELLA MAKAFUI, EFIA ODO, AKUAPIM POLOO, OTHERS WILL TURN PREACHERS – Prophet Reveals

The founder and leader of God’s Crown Chapel, Prophet Oduro popularly known as Eagle Prophet in his latest revelation has named several controversial female entertainers who according to him would start winning souls for the kingdom of God.

Eagle Prophet who was speaking on Kumasi based Abusua FM mentioned actress Nayas 1, Fella Makafui, Afia Schwarzenegger, Akuapim Poloo, Wendy Shay , among others as the female entertainers who will preach the gospel in future. According to him, he prays for these female celebrities anytime he goes on his knees because he wants to see this prophecy come to pass.

He also stressed that Afia Schwarzenegger is one person who will not have an excuse to give when it is time for her to be arrested to do the work of God. Eagle Prophet continued to advise the public not to pray doom for these people he mentioned because it is not their time to die.

To him, they have to fulfil God’s promise so until they repent from their current behavior and win souls for Christ, they are not dying.

THERE ARE INEQUALITY ISSUES IN POLYGAMOUS MARRIAGES – Dr. Kweku Oteng’s 4th Wife Admits

Former beauty queen, and wife of Ghanaian business mogul, Dr. Kwaku Oteng – Sally Amoakowaa Mensah, popularly called Akua, has revealed that there are issues in polygamous marriages.

According to her, often, peace does not reign in such marriages, making the relationship strained, and sometimes filled with jealousy and envy. Akua made these revelations in the recent episode of her Purple Room show.

Revealing why she decided to speak on such a sensitive topic, Akua said people especially young ones, have been flooding her inbox with questions asking if it was right for them to enter into polygamous marriages.

She stated that some wives may feel cheated and unable to speak out. The former beauty queen further revealed that there was often lack of equal love for all the wives, and this could result in chaos, regrets, and others.

“Same love is not shown, meanwhile, it is expected that a man must have the same amount of love for their wives,” Akua stressed.

She, however, condemned the case of unequal love, saying it is a sin. We cannot say if Akua was speaking from her own experience, or she was simply making a general point. Akua was having this discussion with two pastors, one of them, Prophet Mesheck Abor, who is married to two wives.

Abor was very supportive of polygamous marriage and backed his stance with scriptures from the bible which he interpreted. The other pastor, however, rejected the idea of polygamous marriage, stating emphatically that God hates it.

He noted that God created just one woman for the first man Adam, and that is how he intended it to be. Meanwhile, Akua is pregnant with her third child for her millionaire husband.

She had often been criticised for claims that she married a man old enough to be her father. But she rebutted the claims and said that she married Dr Kweku Oteng out of love and his humility.

Akua already has two handsome boys with her husband. She ended her show by advising Ghanaians to make the best decision that would help them when it comes to choosing to enter into a polygamous marriage or not.

I DUMPED MEDIKAL BECAUSE HE CHEATED – Sister Derby Finally Opens Up

Ghanaian musician and television presenter, Deborah Owusu Bonsu popularly known as Sister Derby has finally disclosed in an interview how her relationship with rapper Medikal ended.

According to Sister Derby also known as ‘The African Mermaid’, she broke up with Medikal after she heard rumours about him cheating on her.

“There were rumours of cheating and when I found out I just left. I know people think otherwise but I left.

I don’t see why I should fight for someone who is proving to be otherwise, there is no point. I saw the break up coming so I left”, she disclosed.

Sister Derby also stated that she wrote her hit song ‘Kakalika Love’ in 2018 before she broke up with Medikal. According to her, the song was not a ‘diss’ song as believed by Ghanaians but a way of telling her fans that she was no more in a relationship with Medikal.

“People assume and say it is a diss song, but as an artist, at the beginning of our relationship, I made my fans and the world know that I am dating this person.

As the break up happened its a way to also tell my fans this is the story. I can’t be a coward or hypocrite and stay silent about it. That is a way of telling my story, and there were no insults in it”, Sister Derby added.

ASAMOAH GYAN LOSES COURT CASE AGAINST SARAH KWABLAH, 3 OTHERS

Captain of Ghana’s national team, the Black star, Asamoah Gyan has lost a long running rape, sodomy, and extortion case involving the state and 4 accused persons.

According the Kasapafmonline.com, the Circuit court in Accra presided over by Her Honour Afia Agbanu Kumador has upheld a submission of no case filed by lawyers of Sarah Kwablah and three others against Asamoah Gyan, the Black stars captain.

The Black Stars Captain dragged the four to court for conspiracy and extortion after Ms Kwablah had alleged he raped her.

But in court today Wednesday March 20,2019 the court said the prosecution had not been able to prove that a prima facie case has been established against the accused persons.

Ms Sarah Kwablah was sued together with Osarfo Anthony (Arts/Entertainment Writer), Chris Handler (Blogger) and Ekow Micah (Musician) and were arrested, charged with conspiracy to extort money and arraigned before court.

Background Of Case

Daily Guide newspaper, published a story in June, 2015, which alleged that Sarah Kwablah, a 21-year-old student, wants to blackmail Asamoah Gyan with a sex video involving the two parties. The story caught national attention and was met with mixed beliefs and fraught with several conspiracy theories.

Sarah Kwablah’s side of the story, was however not captured in the publication. According to the paper, though they reached out to her via SMS, she failed to respond at the time of going to press.

Just after the publication, Sarah Kwablah approached Osarfo Anthony – then a writer for online media GHbase.com and gave her side of the story, which had it that, Asamoah Gyan raped and sodomized her which was caught on a CCTV in her house, but Daily Guide twisted the narrative of the story as “consensual sex” (video) to favour Gyan.

Sarah furnished Osarfo with all WhatsApp chats between Gyan and her, still pictures of her bloody naked body after the rape and sodomy she sent to Gyan – which alarmed Gyan, making him apologize for what he did, and Gyan’s WhatsApp voice notes in which he can be heard loud and clear, pleading with the girl not to let anyone see or know about what happened between them.

The site (GHbase.com) investigated and published more revelations on the alleged rape and sodomy story.

Asamoah Gyan’s team contacted the site’s Editor, Chris Handler and Osarfo, and pleaded with them to stop the publication.

The same Gyans, later, turned around to accuse Osarfo and 3 others, of conspiring to extort money from Gyan with their publications. Osarfo Anthony, Chris Handler, Sarah Kwablah, and Ekow Micah, were arrested, charged with conspiracy to extort money and arraigned before court.

COURT TO PASS FINAL JUDGMENT ON ASAMOAH GYAN’S RAPE, SODOMY, & EXTORTION CASE TOMORROW

Accra Circuit Court 9 judge, Ms. Afia Agbanu Kumador, has set Wednesday, 20th March, 2019, to pass judgement on Ghana’s national team (Black star) captain, Asamoah Gyan’s rape, sodomy, and extortion case involving the state and 4 accused persons, namely; Osarfo Anthony (Arts/Entertainment Writer), Chris Handler (Blogger), Sarah Kwablah (Law Student), and Ekow Micah (Musician).

Background Of Case

Daily Guide newspaper, published a story in June, 2015, which alleged that Sarah Kwablah, a 21-year-old student, wants to blackmail Asamoah Gyan with a sex video involving the two parties.

Court Facts On Trial After 3 Years

The trial, which promised to be over within some few months due to eagerness, assurance, and readiness from Asamoah Gyan’s lawyer and manager to the press – to substantiate their allegation and have the accused ones convicted, has been characterized with shocking and farcical drama in court over the past 3 years.

The first State Prosecutor, ACP Moses Atibilla, relieved himself from the case in strange circumstances; ushering in a Police Prosecutor who also appeared in court for a little over 3 months and handed the case to another State Prosecutor after change of government in 2017.
The current State Prosecutor, Mr. Richard Gyambibi, appeared a few times in court and vanished into thin air without any formal reason to the court. Some police prosecutors in court always held his brief.

The court has thrown out all evidences: chats, SMS, pictures, audio voices, and video, the prosecution tendered against the 4 accused. The evidences were described by defence counsels as fictitious, doctored, and maliciously ‘piece-meal’ to implicate the accused ones. The court, convinced after examining the evidences, struck them all out.

Mr. Mathew Banahene, the landlord whose house Gyan allegedly raped and sodomized Sarah Kwabla (then a tenant), testified just once and stopped going to the court. Mr. Banahene had told the media Sarah Kwablah had pleaded with him to lie to the public he heard her “screaming” when Gyan was raping her, to make her story believable so she extorts money from Gyan and reward him with $ 20,000.

Mr. Banahene fumbled ingloriously in court, conduct, that made the defence counsels respectfully prompt the judge:

“My Lord, humbly take note of his conduct. This is how false witnesses behave in the box.”

Defence counsels, Maurice Ampaw and Apanga Lamtiig, punched holes into Mr. Banahene’s wild testimony during cross-examination, describing it as “concocted.” His mouth was not sealed by the court but he stopped going to court to testify. He discharged himself.

The Police Investigator in the case, Richmond Ayayi, was interdicted from the police service for his involvement in an alleged 60 billion cedis gold theft. Though he claimed in his testimony that he’s still a police officer, he could not provide any evidence of reinstatement under cross-examination – till his mouth was sealed and discharged.

Asamoah Gyan’s manager, Samuel Annim Addo, who is the complainant in the trial, stopped going to the court over a year now. In his testimony to the court, Samuel Annim shockingly confessed that its Gyan’s lawyer, who advised him to implicate Osarfo Anthony.

Asamoah Gyan’s lawyer, Kissi Agyebeng, who was the believed last witness for the prosecution, after telling the judge in open court a year ago that he will be the next witness, has failed to appear in court to testify. He’s currently no more the lawyer for Asamoah Gyan.

Judge Closes Prosecution’s Case

The trial judge, Ms. Afia Agbanu Kumador, having patiently allowed the prosecution to drag the trial unduly for over 3 years, closed the case of the prosecution “suo motu” (on the court’s own authority):

“The Attorney General Officer, Richard Gyambibi, who is in charge of this case is absent; though the court has adjourned several times to enable him come to court to continue prosecuting this matter.

“The PW3 (Landlord) who is in the box, failed to avail himself in court for further cross examination. His evidence is hereby expunged from the records. The court ‘suo motu’ closes the case of the prosecution because despite the substantive prosecutor and the witness having been given several opportunities to come to court to prosecute this matter, they have failed to do so. The case of the prosecution is hereby closed.”

Defence Counsels’ Remarks

All 4 accused, instructed their lawyers to file a submission of no case – which was done, presented, and accepted by the trial judge. According to defence lawyer, Maurice Ampaw;

“All the accused ones did not commit any crime and so this whole trial is a waste of the court’s time, my time, my client’s time, and all who followed this case’s time! Prosecution has not been able to establish any case against any of the accused because the accused ones did not commit the alleged crime in the first place! They are all innocent from day one!

“Prosecutor, complainant, and witnesses have all ran away (laughed)! We were always present in court – daring them to face us! We were fully prepared for this trial but they ran away. I knew they will run away because they have no case.”

He added that, “There’s no need to open any defence. It will be a waste of time for the court and my clients. We want the court to pass judgement based on the submission of no case we submitted. The court accepted it and the judge has written her verdict. The press and all those who want the truth, should be in court to listen to the ruling. Thank you.”

Judge Sets Date For Passing Judgement

Come Wednesday, 20th March, 2019, Accra Circuit Court 9 will see the trial judge, pass verdict for all and sundry to know whether the suspects are guilty or innocent.

MISS GHANA SUES FORMER BEAUTY QUEENS FOR DEFAMATION   

Miss Ghana 2010 Stephanie Karikari and others have been dragged to an Accra High Court by Inna Mariam Patty and Exclusive Events Ghana Limited (EEGL).

Inna, who is also Miss Ghana 2004 winner and the CEO of Exclusive Events Ghana Limited, in a lawsuit spotted by News-One, seeks to clear her name of allegations by the ex- queens that she has turned the Miss Ghana pageant into an “escort agency”.

In December 2017, three former winners of the Miss Ghana pageant painted a gloomy picture of the beauty event, alleging that they were pimped by the organisers.

The queens— Stephanie Karikari (Miss Ghana 2010), Antoinette Delali Kemavor Miss (Ghana 2015) and Giuseppina Nana Akua Baafi )Miss Ghana 2013) — spoke to entertainment website Ghanacelebrities.com and claimed they were sometimes pimped to raise money to support the pageant run by Inna Mariam Patty and Exclusive Event Ghana.

Inna had subsequently denied the allegations, but she is also in court to seek a legal redress of the matter to clear her name and the bad image the queens created about the very Miss Ghana brand.

The others captured in the lawsuit in addition to the above mentioned queens are Margaret Kuma-Minta (Miss Ghana 2013 first runner-up), Writer Chris Vincent and his website Ghanacelebrities.com.
