CHRIS ATTOH INVITED BY MARYLAND POLICE FOR QUESTIONING OVER HIS WIFE’S MURDER

Ghanaian actor Chris Attoh is reportedly being questioned by Maryland Police in a bid to unravel the murderer of the late wife.

Bettie, 44, was murdered by an unknown gunman while leaving her office in Maryland USA on Friday.

She was shot in the head by the gunman at about 5:00pm Friday and was pronounced dead when police arrived at the scene of the crime.

She left her office in the 6300 block of Ivy Lane in Maryland and was walking to her car when a man armed with a handgun approached her. She tried to run for her life, but the man followed her and fired at her multiple times, with at least one shot hitting her head.

The gunman then fled in a vehicle and is still wanted by the Maryland Police. Police described the suspect as “a black male with a thin build and black hair, wearing a dark shirt and pants.”

Bettie, according to reports, was married to two men, including the Ghanaian actor and 47-year-old drug lord called Kendrick Jenifer, who is currently serving a 20-year jail term for drug trafficking.

CHRIS ATTOH’S LATE WIFE FILED FOR DIVORCE FROM AMERICAN HUSBAND IN APRIL – Maryland Court Records Reveals

A Bowie woman who was fatally shot in the head outside her workplace in Greenbelt was married to two different men, police say.

Bettie Jenifer, 44, was shot to death while running from a gunman who confronted her with a handgun as she was walking to her car after work on May 10. Police called it a targeted killing.

She had married famous Ghanian actor Chris Attoh in late 2018, but reportedly had another husband — an American man who is currently in jail on drug charges. Maryland court records show she had filed for divorce from him in April.

Her American husband is currently serving a 20-year prison sentence as the leader of the “Jenifer Drug Trafficking Organization” according to the Dept. of Justice. According to the Baltimore Sun, one of the couriers in this drug trafficking ring was fatally shot in the back of the head in October 2012.

Shortly before Jenifer’s death, Attoh had tweeted: “When it comes to relationships, remaining faithful is never an option but a priority. Loyalty is ever…”

This tweet and another he made shortly after her death became a matter of interest to the police, but they say Attoh has been cooperative, and they have not named him a person of interest in Jenifer’s death. According to entertainment site Ghana Page, Attoh was in Los Angeles when his wife was shot.

Early Sunday morning, Attoh tweeted, “One, remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Two, never give up work. Work gives …”

Around 10 people were witnesses to the shooting, which police characterized as a brazen attack in broad daylight. The shooting took place in the 6300 block of Ivy Lane around 5:10 p.m. It is Greenbelt’s first homicide of 2019.

The suspect, who is unidentified at this time, fled the scene. He’s described as a black male with a thin build and black hair who was wearing a dark shirt and dark pants.

A Maryland woman who was gunned down while leaving her office on Friday May 10, 2019 was married to two different men simultaneously, one of whom is a convicted Baltimore drug lord and the other one is a Ghanaian actor, police said Sunday.

Greenbelt police said 44-year-old Bettie Jenifer of Bowie, left her office in the 6300 block of Ivy Lane about 5 p.m. and was walking to her car when a man armed with a handgun approached her.

When she tried to run away, the man followed her and fired multiple rounds. At least one bullet struck her in the head, police said. The suspect took off in a vehicle. Police described the suspect as black and having a thin build with black hair. He was wearing dark clothing and may have been in a blue car.

Police confirmed Saturday that Jenifer was married to Chris Attoh, a well-known actor and TV host in Ghana. The two married in October, 2018 following Attoh’s divorce from his first wife, Damilola Adegbite who is a popular Nigerian actress.

On Sunday May 12, police said Jenifer was also married to 47-year-old Kedrick Jenifer, who is currently serving a 20-year prison sentence for importing large amounts of cocaine into Baltimore from Texas.

The U.S. District Attorney’s Office said the kingpin’s “Jenifer drug trafficking organization” distributed at least 450 kilograms of cocaine in Baltimore and Woodbridge, Virginia.

“Kedrick Jenifer lived large as a major Baltimore drug dealer, but now he will lose all of his toys and live for two decades in federal prison,” U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein said in a news release after his sentencing, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Court records show that Kedrick Jenifer filed for a divorce on April 9. Bettie Jenifer then filed for divorce six days later.  The attorneys involved declined News4’s request for comment.

Greenbelt police confirmed Sunday the shooting was targeted and not a random incident. Police have not named a suspect or motive in the case. Co-workers said Bettie Jenifer worked at a temporary staffing agency on the first floor.

A spokesperson for Attoh’s talent agency gave the following statement:

“Waka Talent Agency is saddened by the death of Bettie Jenifer, who was married to our client, Mr. Chris Attoh. We would like to note that the family has requested to mourn in private and therefore will not be doing any press interviews or commenting on the death.”

NO GHANAIAN ARTISTE MAKES MONEY FROM JUST MUSIC – Rapper EL Insists

Although things are improving in the music industry and some artistes such as Sarkodie, Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale are believed to be making millions of cedis with their craft, rapper EL says it is not possible for any Ghanaian artiste to make a fortune solely from music.

“Music is just a means to an end. You cannot leave a legacy through music. It is actually the businesses you use your music for. How much can you sell an album or a song in Ghana? Any artiste who says he made a fortune only through music is a liar,” he told Showbiz recently.

According to the Koko hitmaker, not even the many shows Ghanaian artistes brag of can bring them such huge money.

“Forget about the shows because I have mounted every show in Ghana and they doesn’t pay that much. The money we get from shows is peanuts; it only lasts for a month or two.”

“No artiste in Ghana can tell me he built a house or made a big fortune with an album or a particular song. I challenge any musician to come and contest me. It is how you direct your music into other businesses,” he said.

EL revealed he was involved in other businesses hence the reason he has been on the low for a while.

Asked if it was difficult for a famous musician to bounce back after a long break, EL said it was easy if you have money.

“Money does everything now. Just see the right DJs and pay them well. In a matter of weeks, your song will be the number one on every playlist. Talent doesn’t really count these days; if you don’t have money and the right people to push your music forget about making a hit song,” he said.

Asked to choose his three favourite rappers, EL who is known for songs such One Ghana, Obuu Mo, Shelele, Mi Naa Bo Po, Kaa Bu Ame, Overdose, Ayayaa and Hallelujah said there are really good rappers in Ghana.

“Apart from myself who is the best rapper in Ghana? I have more than 10 rappers who are amazing,” he stated.

On his dating life, EL revealed that he was dating a beauty queen who he loves a lot. “I am dating a beauty queen and it is official. We love each other and at the right time Ghanaians will know who she is,” he said.
