RUMOURS ARE STARTED BY ENEMIES, ACCEPTED BY FOOLS & SPREAD BY IGNORANT PEOPLE – Becca Reacts

While answering how she deals with trolls having been taunted on several occasions by a section of the Ghanaian populace, Becca said she is least perturbed because she finds it awkward to respond to rumors and comments aimed at making her feel less of a person.

“People who troll you are usually your enemies. I don’t think when you love someone so much, you won’t give them the opportunity to explain themselves,” she told MzGee on TV3’s New Day, Friday.

“Sometimes, I’m quiet because I believe that’s the best way to do things. I believe that when you’re quiet about things, it passes… [My way of dealing with trolls is] just silence because I believe that silence is really golden.”

The musician is of the conviction that colleagues join the bandwagon and subject her to vehement attack for reasons best known to them when they are supposed to know better. Regardless, she holds no grudges as she focuses on positivity and forges ahead to chalk successes.

“There might be ordinary people there as well but definitely there’s gonna be some who come from the industry,” she said while adding a phrase which could be attributed to her should a discussion about rumours and how they spread is tabled for discussion.

“Rumours are started by enemies, accepted by fools, and spread by ignorance without confirmation.”

The songstress, accused of bleaching, was recently hit with a song theft allegation following the release of her song ‘No One’. She was said to have sampled South African singer, Sho Madjozi’s, ‘John Cena’ song and trolled on various social media platforms.

Setting the record straight, Becca said the accusation was fuelled by ignorance. She explained that ‘No One’ falls under a genre called Gqom beat – an electronic dance music that emerged in the early 2010 from Durban, South Africa – stressing that when people were jabbing her in Ghana, the song was trending at number two in South Africa.

“That’s the irony of life. People are home trolling [me] but my song was number 2 in South Africa. People do not really understand the kind of music I released,” she said. “It sounded like somebody else’s song and so are all Gqom beats. Gqom beats all sound alike. If the song you claim is gqom beat does not sound like all gqom beats, then it’s actually gqom beat.

“The good thing is that I featured one of the main women who are the founders of gqom beat – Busiswa. Would you actually think that she would take weeks and weeks to go through my song and feature if she thought it was a copied song?” she asked.

On whether she was disappointed about the development, Becca responded in the affirmative.

“I was disappointed. I fell it was naivety and I felt like people should have just asked these questions. But people who knew it knew it so I wasn’t really worried about it,” she mentioned.

PEOPLE ARE DYING, PEOPLE NEED FOOD & GOVERNMENT IS ORGANIZING COVID-19 APP VIRTUAL CONCERT – John Dumelo

Actor and Politician John Dumelo has described the virtual concert organized by the government to launch the COVID-19 Tracker app as needless.

The NDC Ayawaso West Wuogon MP aspirant  was speaking on Entertainment Capital on Accra100.5FM on Saturday, 18 April 2020. The Ministry of Communication organized the concert on Monday, 13 April 2020

However, Mr Dumelo, who revealed that he was not aware of the virtual concert until he saw comments about it on Twitter, said the resources used to organize the concert could have been used to fight the deadly virus in a more practical way.

He told show host Nana Romeo: “No, it wasn’t [necessary], I mean look, we’re in crisis; the government wants to launch an application to help COVID-19 and they’ve also gone to organize a concert, I mean it’s totally needless. It would have been more helpful if they had even invested that money used to organize the concert to, perhaps, buy more PPE or pay more allowances to the health personnel or used it for something more practical related to the COVID-19 crisis.

“The musicians who performed, it’s their business, they were doing the job they were assigned, so, I don’t blame the musicians, that one it’s not a problem. I just blame the organizers for setting up that concert. I don’t know how much they spent but at the end of the day, what is the point? People are sick, people need food, people need things, people are dying and they say they want to organize a concert to launch an app? What will the app also do? It’s pointless and needless.”

“I SMELL SOMETHING FISHY AROUND THE LIFTING OF PARTIAL LOCKDOWN – Efia Odo

President of Ghana announced on Sunday evening April 19, that the 3-week partial lockdown in Greater Accra and Ashanti region have been lift and this has attracted mixed reactions both on social media and mainstream media.

While some are of the view that the president’s decision was the best for the country at the moment, others have expressed their disappointment and have detailed their fear of a wider spread in the country.

Actress Efia Odo Andrea Owusu, is one of those who does not agree with the lift on the ban on restrictions especially when Ghana has recorded over 1000 Coronavirus cases. Efia believes the president’s decision was politically motivated.

In a post on her Twitter page, she said she “smells something fishy”.

According to the TV presenter, the decision to arrive at the lifting of the lockdown was made as part of a certain political agenda.

“Ban being lifted after 1000+ cases reported. Something smells fishy or shall I say there’s a political agenda aroma around this lift,” she wrote on April 19, 2020.

However, in his 7th address to the nation, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo said the decision was influenced by several factors including Ghana’s ability to undertake aggressive contact tracing, an enhanced capacity to test, expansion of the number of treatment and isolation centres as well as the impact of the virus on the poor and vulnerable in the affected areas.

STOP PUTTING PRESSURE ON CELEBRITIES TO DONATE…WE ARE ALSO SUFFERING – Bismark TheJoke

Comic actor Bismark Odio popularly known as Bismark TheJoke has urged his fans and the general public to stop pressurising public figures to donate by all means during these extraordinary times.

Since the coronavirus breakout in Ghana in February, countless celebrities and public figures have donated several items at different parts of the country and there has been pressure from the public on known people who haven’t donated yet to do so. But according to Bismark, not every public figure or celebrity can donate item because they are also suffering.

Speaking during an interview with Ola Michael on Neat FM’s “Entertainment GH”, this morning, Bismark revealed that all is not rosy for some celebrities as people may assume.

“It is not easy for some of us. Several people keep saying celebrities must donate but I am telling you the truth a lot of celebrities are suffering but nobody is speaking for them because they say we are public figures so we don’t even have the chance to say that you are also suffering”.

According to Bismark who is celebrating his birthday today Wednesday April, 15, 2020, the movie industry was already suffering before the outbreak of coronavirus and things are even getting worse now.

He also spoke about how he is coping with the current lockdown situation among other things.

As of the time I was leaving on 22nd March 2020, the total number of deaths was close to 2,000. 2,000 coronavirus-related deaths, in less than 2 weeks. As of today, total deaths, due to coronavirus in the UK is about 10,000. All because they did not listen, just as Ghanaians are not LISTENING!!! Mr President, we can no longer do business as usual. I think you are over pampering us, Mr President. We will be the same people to blame and accuse you if this virus claims more lives. Please, something has to change and immediately too!!!”
