PRESIDENT AKUFO-ADDO HAS DONE A LOT! GHANAIANS SHOULD OPEN THEIR EYES – Shatta Wale

Shatta Wale has urged Ghanaian voters to retain President Akufo-Addo in the upcoming general elections in December 2020.

The controversial dancehall artiste, whose dad is a member of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), said it would be a wise decision to take as he endorsed Akufo-Addo’s presidency for a second term.

Speaking on Joy FM Saturday afternoon, he said, “Nana Addo has done a lot and needs to be commended. Ghanaians should open their eyes.” 

In his reckoning, he indicated that the President is not only doing well, but how his leadership has been able to handle situations during this pandemic makes him deserving of a second term.

The endorsement has come less than a day after his former best friend, Pope Skinny, accused him of being a member of the opposition NDC, yet he is dining with members of government.

NEWS-ONE has also gathered his endorsement of Akufo-Addo is causing a lot of panic in the camp of ex-President John Mahama, who is the NDC’s flagbearer in the upcoming election.

Some Ghanaian musicians and movie stars are noted for supporting politicians and political parties, especially during election years.

Musician Lucky Mensah was the first entertainer to endorse the current President for the 2020 elections in October 2019. He recorded a single in that regard. Now, it’s Shatta Wale who has also endorsed the President.

STOP INVESTING IN INSTAGRAM FOLLOWERS & GET YOUR PRIORITIES RIGHT – Guru Advise Fellow Musicians

Rapper Guru has advised his colleagues in the music industry to set their priorities straight and be focused on making good money to support themselves and their families.

According to him, it’s imperative that colleagues artistes invest in their digital stores to rake in revenue rather than wasting their time on building followers on their social media handles.

To Guru, investing in their digital stores will rake in more revenue that they can invest in their craft but investing in their social presence will just generate likes and comments which does not add anything to their craft or bank account.

“My dear Ghanaian artiste, 1000000 Spotify streams equals $7000 whereas 1 million Instagram followers equal like and comments with no pay. So set your priority right. Tell the leaders to fix the system in Ghana. Something must change.”

With the wake of Coronavirus and its associated lockdown, the music industry is one which has been severely hit by the pandemic because artistes who depend solely on revenue made from live shows have had to stay home with no funds coming in.

Artistes who have invested in building their digital stores will at the moment be receiving some monies for their upkeep as the country fights the deadly disease.

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.

I’M DISAPPOINTED SARKODIE IS INTERESTED IN BEEF WHEN PEOPLE ARE DYING – Shatta Wale

Dancehall artiste Shatta Wale says he is disappointed in Sarkodie for releasing a diss song at a time when a pandemic is killing thousands of people across the world.

Asked about his take on Sarkodie’s ‘Sub Zero’ track released last night in which the rapper seemed to have taken shots at some artists including himself (Shatta Wale), he said even though he is yet to listen to the track, he is surprised that Sarkodie will overlook the seriousness of the current situation to engage in beefing.

“Sarkodie is talking about beefs and the industry is happy?. I am disappointed though, at this time?,” He told MzGee on TV3 this morning.

Shatta Wale wondered why Sarkodie did not choose to contribute to the fight against coronavirus but has rather chosen to engage in beefing which will result in disunity in the music industry, especially at a time when there is the need for unity.

“I thought you were going to tell me he has donated to some needy people. But if Sarkodie has thrown a shot at me in this time of our life where people are dying, where people need help….. If it was me they will tell me I need attention at this time, if it was me people will say Charles don’t you think your brand is going down?. My brand has never gone down,” He said.

Sarkodie last night released ‘Sub Zero’ in which he addressed some artistes who have over the years called him out.

The song sparked various reactions on twitter which included some mentioning Shatta Wale as one of the victims.
