WENDY SHAY BLASTS HER HATERS

Ghanaian songstress Wendy Addo, famed as Wendy Shay, has taken a subtle jab at her haters in the music industry who criticise her for always singing songs about hate.

The Astalavista singer took to social media to hit back those always attacking her for singing songs that seem to speak about hatred.
According to her, the faces of the people making such claims look like insults and was at a loss as to why they keep talking her brand into the mud.
Wendy Shay added that ever since she gained the spotlight in Ghana’s music industry, she has been given nothing but hatred.
She, therefore, linked her kind of music and lyrics to the treatment that has been meted to her by players in the music industry.
The Ruff Town Records signee took to Twitter to lambast her critics and called them out for treating her unfairly.
Her tweet read: “See demma facespeople who look like insults always insulting Wendy Shay Some of you complain I always sing about haters What have you guys given me since I entered the music industry Is it not hate ? Official video drops tomorrow at 11 am #HIT #SHAYGANG #SM #RUFFTOWN”

I DON’T HAVE ANY ISSUE WITH STONEBWOY, MY ATTACK ON HIM WAS JUST TO TREND – Samini Confesses

Ghana’s all-time best recording and performing artiste, Samini has finally opened up as to why he ranted on social media about the much publicised ‘Asaase Sound Clash’  and the involvement of Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale.

The award winning Raggae/Dancehall artiste, who was seen registering his displeasure in an instagram video, disclosed his motive for the social media rant.

Samini who is the godfather of Stonebwoy disclosed this during an interview with DJ Seani B on Asaase Radio.

The “My Own” hitmaker who ranted and even threatened to expose Stonebwoy, revealed that his rants on social media was his strategy to trend and become relevant and indeed he achieved his aim.

“My rants on social media about the clash was to have me trend, and I achieved that. It was my smart way to get involved as well. There is still unfinished business between me and Shatta Wale. I wasn’t surprised to see Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale names come up for the Sound Clash. My longevity in the game is good reason enough to include me in Sound Clash such as this one. I don’t see the reason why anyone would disagree with me on this,” Samini revealed.

He added: “I don’t see me and Stonebwoy having a ‘head on’ sound clash in a competitive bout because ‘Father & Son’ don’t have to do that, perhaps it would have to be a family vibe sort of with Stonebwoy on the microphone; if anything between me and Stonebwoy on the microphone it will be more like a party clash and not anything so serious. It still remains a family thing between me and Stonebwoy forever. HighGrade Family and Bhim Nation are family forever and I won’t change that narrative.”

Samini however applauded Asaase Radio for bringing together the two most controversial artiste in Ghana.

“I am proud of the genre I am part of. Aside my concerns raised, I am singularly excited about this. It is the best thing to ever happen in the history of Ghanaian Reggae/Dancehall music. And the bigger reason for the clash which is to crush COVID-19 even makes me doff my hat for Asaase Radio 99.5fm,” he stated.

When Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy’s sound clash was first announced, Samini shockingly recorded a video attacking the two of them.

In the lengthy video, Samini attacked Stonebwoy for not informing him about the clash when he knows he (Samini) has a beef with Wale.

Samini said Shatta Wale way bigger and older than Stonebwoy and any clash should be between him and Shatta and not Stonebwoy and Wale.

WHEN YOU ARE CONTINUOUSLY REMOVING PANTS AND SHOWING NIPPLES WHICH COMPANY WILL TAKE YOU SERIOUS? – DKB Asks Efia Odo

Award-winning Ghanaian comedian, Derrick Kobina Bonney famed as DKB, has taken a swipe at actress Efia Odo following her claims that McDonald’s workers earn more than Ghanaian celebs.

In a post on his IG page and sighted by Nkonkonsa.com. DKB did not mince words as he pointed out that Efia Odo was just generalising for celebs when in actual fact, she was the only one suffering.
DKB went on to indicate that Efia Odo’s way of dressing was a factor affecting her brand since no serious company would like to work or would want to be associated with her.
The comedian went on to lambast Efia Odo for bringing the businesses and brands of other top female celebs like Yvonne Nelson, Jackie Appiah, Yvonne Okoro and Nana Ama McBrown with her “nonsense lifestyle”
DKB went on to admonish the socialite and actress to change her style of dressing by wearing Kaba and slit and see the number of endorsements she would get.
Not long ago, Nkonkonsa.com reported that Efia Odo indicated that being famous in Ghana did not come with money.
The actress noted for her raunchy style of dressing added that a worker in world-renown eatery McDonald’s was able to make more many than many female celebs.
Among other rants, Efia Odo stated that it was her wish that the current crop of Ghanaian leaders be fired for them to be replaced with new-age thinkers.
Efia Odo’s comments sparked massive debate on social media with some people agreeing with her assertion while others disagreed entirely with her.
Read DKB’s full post below:
“When you are continuously removing pants and showing nipples like a Pono auditions, which company will take you serious?

Don’t say us when it’s just you, shut up and suffer your misery instead of disrespecting the creative arts field, some of us have made a living out of it and created jobs for others through it.

How dare you jeopardise the hardworks of Yvonne Nelson, Okoro, Mcbrown etc because of your nonsense lifestyle.

Wear a kaba & slit for once and see the number of brand endorsements that will chase you.

Everyday pioto bonanza… MUTUMBANZA!”

I HAVE BLACKLISTED SHATTA WALE FOR OVER 6 YEARS AND STILL SURVIVING – Ameyaw Debrah

Celebrity and lifestyle blogger, Ameyaw Debrah has opened up on his professional relationship with award-winning dancehall star, Shatta Wale.

While speaking in an exclusive interview with Nkonkonsa.com, Ameyaw Debrah stated categorically that he had blacklisted Shatta Wale for the past six years and still counting.
According to Ameyaw, the whole blacklisting started after he put up a story of how Shatta Wale who was billed to for a show together with Samini some years ago, performed for hours before allowing Samini to also perform.
Ameyaw said after he reported on the issue, he received a call from Shatta Wale’s camp and they accused him of being biased towards the Ayoo hitmaker.
The celebrity blogger added that the conversation ended with a threat after Shatta Wale told him to stop writing about him if he (Ameyaw) valued his life.
Ameyaw added that from then on, he decided to blacklist Shatta Wale and barred himself from writing about him.
Ghana’s arguably number 1 blogger went on to add that he happened to be on the same flight with Shatta Wale and other stars on a trip to Tamale the next day.
Ameyaw said while he captured all the people that were billed for the show being organized by Mimie Andani, he left out Shatta Wale.
He recounted that when people asked why he did that, he explained that he had been in a conversation with the dancehall star and he received a threat.
Ameyaw Debrah added that even six years after making the decision to block one of the most influential entertainers in Ghana, he was still thriving and doing very well for himself.
According to Ameyaw, he would only post something which had Shatta Wale on it only if it was paid PR for an event.
Ameyaw added that after he started Ameyaw TV, Shatta Wale sent him a direct message and said that they (he and Ameyaw) should not fight but rather try and make money together.
When asked who the most influential Ghanaian artiste was, Ameyaw Debrah indicated that he would pick Sarkodie over Shatta Wale any day.

ONLY LAZY CELEBRITIES COMPLAIN OF HARDSHIP IN GHANA – Nicholas Omane Acheampong

Gospel musician Nicholas Omane Acheampong has dismissed claims that celebrities who have gone public about their political affiliations often fall on hard times.

There are countless reports about entertainment personalities who have shown their political colours being negatively affected; some lose out on lucrative deals or roles which ultimately leaves them worse off but for Nicholas Omane Acheampong, it is only lazy celebrities who complain.

Speaking on UTV’United Showbiz programme on Saturday, he said if a celebrity is talented there is no way he or she should be affected by campaigning for a political party.

“I admire someone like John Dumelo, despite coming out strongly to support the NDC his popularity has not gone down and he is still doing extremely well.

“Anyone who would hide behind a political party and say he is not doing well because he publicly campaigned for that party is just lazy,” he told host Nana Ama McBrown.

Nicholas Omane Acheampong, who has pitched his camp with the New Patriotic Party (NPP) over the years indicated that he was very confident about President Akufo-Addo winning another four-year term and he was readying to drop a powerful song for him after the elections.

“Nana Addo has succeeded in convincing me to campaign for the NPP with their good messages. The free SHS alone is enough reason for me to vote and campaign for them,” he said.

He stated emphatically that ex-president John Mahama will never become the president of Ghana again.

“Mark my words, John Mahama is never winning this election. It is a straight win for the NPP. I, therefore, urge everyone to vote massively for NPP so that Nana Addo can continue his good works,” he said.

SARKODIE’S BLACK LOVE VIRTUAL CONCERT CRUSHES WEBSITE

Sarkodie’s much-hyped Black Love Virtual Concert slated for August 16, 2020, attracted massive viewership all over the world and saw awesome performances as well.

However, prior to the airing of the free concert, huge traffic from many fans of the Oofeetso viewers of the virtual show caused the website to go down temporarily over bandwidth issues.

Reports have it that the hosting site could carry 15.million subscribers at a time but they were recording almost 2 times that number.

The official streaming website for the show, Ceek, as a result, released a statement following the hiccup and assured fans that normalcy would be restored.

They took to their Twitter handle to post: “Due to massive traffic we are aware some people are not able to connect. Standby the show will begin shortly.”

News coming in about traffic sources for the Concert showed that Ghana was in the lead with almost 1.4 million viewers trying to log in and this slowed down the website.

The tweet to this effect read: “#SarkNation shut the web down. Due to overwhelming traffic, we are having some technical issues. Please standby we are working to resolve this. 1.5 million at once with more coming.”

Sarkodie’s Black Love concert was hyped for a long time and saw a number of top Ghanaian stars making appearances.

The likes of Shatta Wale, Efya, Amakye Dede and a host of others joined Sarkodie on the day.

One of the most memorable moments on the night was when Sarkodie performed together with Shatta Wale for the first time in 3 years.

Prior to the big day, it was reported that dancehall star Stonebwoy, was engaged in some sort of fracas with Sarkodie’s manager, Angeltown.

Stonebwoy, however, following the incident, rendered an official self-recorded apology to Angeltown and Sarkodie.
