Artiste Manager, Bulldog says dancehall artiste Shatta Wale is bigger than the President of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
Speaking in an interview with Halifax Ansah Addo on Okay FM‘s mid-morning entertainment show ”Best Entertainment”, Bulldog explained that his artiste Shatta Wale has got the charisma to pull the masses than the President.
Days ago, Shatta Wale was at Hitz FM when a super fan who happens to be a mini van (trotro) driver trooped into the studios to gush about his idol.
Following what many have described as touching as the super fan nearly brought Shatta Wale to tears, the artiste stormed Circle on foot and pulled a massive crowd.
According to Bulldog, Shatta Wale is too big that he would steal the show if it were the President holding a rally at Circle in Accra.
”Shatta Wale is bigger than Nana Akufo-Addo…in terms of popularity. What we do as entertainment people or people on TV, we’re miles ahead of all these politicians,” he stated.
Singer Kuami Eugene whose voice was heard on Sarkodie’s newly released song “Happy Day” which seems to endorse the current president, H.E Akufo Addo ahead of the December polls has spoken about the tune.
The singer explaining himself after the song was tagged a campaign song for the NPP following its release says he had no idea it was for such an agenda. Speaking to MzGee, he said Sarkodie only sent him one verse of the song which never contained the endorsement part just to aid him in composing the chorus and his verse.
Kuami Eugene went ahead to state that he only got to know that the song contained the endorsement of NPP when he was on set ready to shoot the music video.
The musician who seems not happy about the development believes Sarkodie’s endorsement in the song will affect his career.
“Sarkodie only sent me the first verse of his rap which did not contain the endorsement for Nana Addo to aid me do the chorus, it was only at the video shoot that we got to know of the second verse, we confronted Sark’s management, and they denied…I am uncomfortable, I still don’t know Sarkodie’s motive for the song, it will have an effect on my career, I wasn’t ready to vouch for any political party openly….it will not end here” – Kuami Eugene tells MzGee Ghana on 3FM.
Ghana’s BET Award-winning Rapper Michael Owusu Addo, known professionally as Sarkodie and African Dancehall King, Samini have asked their fans and followers to give President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo the chance for a second term in office in this year’s elections.
In his new song titled ‘Happy Days’, featuring Kuami Eugene, Sarkodie indicated that Akufo-Addo has implemented a number of good policies that are benefitting all Ghanaians.
According to the “Brighter Day” Rapper, these policies, include the free Senior High school as well as the uninterrupted power supply to homes and industry. Adding that Ghanaians did not enjoy these policies that are being witnessed currently during the previous NDC administration.
“We all spoke against the dumsor (erratic power supply) and the high inflation rate and so if these have been solved at the moment with Ghanaians also enjoying free SHS, then all I can say is that Nana Akufo-Addo should continue for another four years,” he said in the song.
MOBO award-winning Dancehall artist Samini has also endorsed President Akufo-Addo for a second term in his song titled “Kpoyaka” in which he reechoed the achievements of the president ranging from the agric, service, manufacturing and industry sectors of the economy.
“Nana show boy is number one on the ballot, Nana continues with the work because you have delivered,” Samini said.
Actress Irene Opare has blamed the Ghanaian society over the influx of nude pictures and videos of women in the country.
Not long ago, social media influencer Akuapem Polo was incriminated for posting on her social media handle a nude picture of herself standing in front of her son to mark his birthday.
Something that seemed to be an action to celebrate her toils and how she has been able to raise the kid by herself took a turn for the worse when a child rights organization reported her to the Gender Minister and the Police.
Akuapem Polo posting her nude picture is just a fraction of the nude postings on social media as it has become a new normal for most ladies, popularly called ‘slay queens’, to pose nude to attract social media following and/or earn a living.
Speaking in an interview with Nkonkonsa.com, Irene Opare was of the view that it is of no fault of nude women to go nude stressing it is the society that has empowered them.
To her, should the society or their social media followers frown on the act, this trend of going nude will stop.
“If they go naked and don’t get likes. If they don’t 150000 likes, they will stop undressing themselves. They will know the people don’t like it. But if she dresses up and gets 150000 likes, she will start putting on dress. Do you get it? But if she goes nude and people compliment her telling her how nice her body, stomach, buttocks and breasts are, and people say it and give them money; you know, so that’s why they do it. I don’t blame them. That’s where the society is now. That’s what the society wants, so they’re giving it to you.’’
She stated categorically that she sees nothing wrong with a lady going nude to make ends meet.
“…they’re big girls. They’re not twelve years. If it’s someone who is aged 10, 11 or 12 and I see her nude, I will go to here house personally and beat her. But these are big girls, when someone reaches 18 years; she is old. And like I always tell them that this is their world. Our world was different. This is your world, social media and so forth; use it positively to make money out of it. But most of them choose to go nude negatively, do stuff negatively and they still make money out of it.
“Because it’s like this is what the current generation likes. That’s why these girls go nude. Because they go nude and they make billions out of the nudity. It’s not good. I haven’t said it is right but for me, as a woman, I won’t criticise it too much because it is their decision…You do what you like. They’re not children; they’re grown up and they feel this is what gets them money, fame and that is it. So, they do it more and they’re still doing it, and I have less to talk about it.’’
Nonetheless, she emphasised that “I won’t advise my child to go nude. If I see my child has gone nude, I will call her and say ‘hey, no way!’ Me, personally, I would not advise anybody to do it but like I’m saying they’re old enough to know what is good and what is bad. If they choose to do that to make money, fine, that’s their choice. I don’t have anything against them.’’.
Legendary Ghanaian music producer now turned Pastor, Marx Morris Twumasi known as Morris Babyface has in a caution statement advised Ghanaians on the impact of words and pronouncements on one’s life chances and destiny.
The ace producer who has worked with legendary acts like Bice Osei Kuffuor (Obour), A.B Crentsil, Kojo Antwi and others disclosed in an exclusive interview with Hammer Nti on Kumasi-based Pure FM’s flagship ‘Hammer Time’ entertainment program monitored by MyNewsGh.com that Ghanaians should be cautious when singing songs like Kidi’s ‘thunder’ track as it can have greater repercussions.
Morris Babyface explained that spoken words impact a person’s life so if one sings an ‘adulterated’ song which has in it an imminent curse pronouncement, such person is likely to suffer the consequences of his action if anything goes wrong.
He further revealed that as such, he has since stopped producing circular music as the ‘devil’ has diluted it to suit its interest.
“Hammer, I do not record circular songs again because the devil can dilute it in its interest and we must be aware that anything said has its impact on our lives. We sometimes make certain pronouncements and wonder where some hardships come from.
KiDi’s ‘thunder’ song for instance, if you listen, it says if I leave you, make thunder fire me… so if you leave the person, what do you expect to happen.
It’s a curse pronouncement you have made and we should be cautious of singing songs and making such pronouncements,”He said on Pure FM.
