WHO WEARS THE MISS MALAIKA 2018 CROWN?

Exactly 16 years ago, a thought was conceived, ‘to give women in society a voice, an opportunity to showcase women as not just beautiful on the outside but also smart, intelligent, bold and most importantly to give them a chance to give back to society and be role models to upcoming generations.

From that thought, Miss Malaika Ghana was birthed, and after producing 15 queens, it is time to crown another; and come Saturday, 3rd November, 2018, the battle for the cash, car and crown will be settled at the extraordinary grand finale of Miss Malaika Ghana 2018 at the National Theater.

Started in 2003, the pageant has successfully changed the many negative misconceptions about beauty pageants in general. It has produced amazing women of substance who have in one way or the other impacted society positively in their various fields of endeavor.

From health to law to the entertainment industry, the Malaika brand impact can neither be downplayed nor over emphasized. The brand year in year out, with the projects embarked on by its delegates and eventual winners have touched a lot of lives in Ghana.

The journey of the 2018 edition of the reality TV show begun on Friday, 13th July at the plush Tomreik hotel where hundreds of beautiful ladies showed up to get a chance to change the course of their lives. Many were those with hopes of being part of the finalists, but at the end of screening, only 16 made it to the competition proper.

The 16 delegates, for weeks have been taken through an intensive grooming and learning processes which have shaped them into assets for society. From communications to catwalk, personal outlook to entrepreneurial skills etc. The highlights of their experiences however are the charity projects, where the ladies donated to 3 Cerebral Palsy centers in Ghana.

As custom would have it however, 6 ladies were unfortunately evicted based on their performances on weekly tasks and of course, your votes, leaving it out to the final 10; Anne, Dela, Mariam, Rosetta, Gloria, Ambraya, Evelyn, Afia, Gesa and Jennifer to battle it out for the coveted crown that currently sits on the head of Miss Pearl Nyarko (Miss Malaika Ghana 2017).

Gearing up to give the audience incredible performances are some of Ghana’s finest show stoppers; the lynx three made up of the Adiepena Hitmaker, Kidi, current VGMA new artiste of the year, Kuami Eugene, BET nominee and dancehall sensation, Mzvee and the freshest kid on the block whose music is rocking the airwaves, Wendy shay.

Very limited tickets are currently on sale at Charterhouse, Xmen, Nallem stores in the Accra Mall, Junction Mall and Osu Mall for 100 cedis only.

Miss Malaika Ghana is produced by the nation’s biggest event company, Charterhouse and is proudly sponsored by UB Hair Relaxer, Awake Mineral Water, Carnival, Infinix Mobility, British Council, Volta Serene Hotel, City Escape Hotel, Premium Motors, TLC Electronics, Taxify, Adansi Travels, Gold Coast Restaurants, Henry’s Inn, Jumia travel, Jumia foods, Koppan Hospitality, GTP, Glams Make-up, Kenya Airways, Holy Trinity Spa, Tomreik Hotel, Max TV, TV7, Pluzz FM, YFM and GhOne TV.

WIZKID APOLOGISES FOR PERFORMING WITH SLIPPERS IN GHANA

Nigerian superstar musician, Wizkid, wrapped up performances for the Glo Mega concert in Accra on Saturday night in a rather casual fashion.

He came on stage in a black hoodie over a pair of jeans. Underneath it was his pair of slippers over pair of his socks.

However, minutes into his performance, he paused to render an apology to the fans and respectable people in the audience, asking them to forgive him for wearing a pair of slippers on stage.

He explained he meant no disrespect; rather it was because he arrived in Ghana an hour to his performance. That, he revealed, prevented him from wearing something else.

“Ghana… I like to take this opportunity to apologise for performing in slippers,” he added briefly.

The Glo concert was held at the Fantasy Dome on Saturday night and it ended Sunday morning with all the glitz and glamour.

There were great performances from some of Africa’s celebrated artistes like Patapaa, Stonebwoy, Flavour, Yemi Alade, Sarkodie, Davido and Wizkid.

The MCs were Juliet Ibrahim and Gordons from Nigeria.

Stonebwoy had a great show. He performed most of his popular songs and the crowd cheered him throughout the performance.

Intermittently, he paused and engaged the crowd while they sang along with him. After him was Flavour, who entered the stage with the beautiful rhythms of his ‘Ada Ada’ song and also thrilled with his other hits. Flavour wrapped his performance at12: 44am and then Gordon took over for almost 20 minutes doling out jokes to pave the way for Sarkodie, whom he described as Africa’s number one ‘rap god’.

Sarkordie performed most of his songs to the satisfaction of the crowd. He also brought social media viral video star, Supa, on stage to join him at a point. After him was Davido, who was also great on the night.

Wizkid wrapped up the performances of the night. During his performance, he introduced King Promise on stage for a short performance, suggesting the two of them may have something coming up.

photos: SHATTA WALE MAKES HISTORY WITH “REIGN” ALBUM CONCERT

Ghana’s dancehall king Shatta Wale made history on Saturday October 1, 2018 in Accra with his album launch concert.

The much-publicised ‘Reign Album’ launch and concert of Ghana’s most popular dancehall artiste Shatta Wale took place at the Fantasy Dome at the Accra Trade Fair Centre attracted an unprecedented crowd of over 20,000.

Some of them allegedly couldn’t get access to the venue because there was no space for them. Organisers of the event, according to reports, allegedly sold more tickets than the venue could contain. But that did not affect the success of the event.

A businessman and his wife, simply called Mr. & Mrs. Slegg, shocked patrons by purchasing the first copy of the album for GH¢150,000.

The amount they offered was above the GH¢100,000 auctioning price for the first copy of the ‘Reign’ album.

Shatta Wale also performed a number of his old songs and sent fans chanting his name throughout his performance. He also surprised many when he went on his knees to propose to his long-time girlfriend, Shatta Michy.

BULLDOG STOPS SAMINI & STONEBWOY FROM PERFORMING AT SHATTA WALE’S REIGN CONCERT

Head of Artists and Repertoire (A&R) at Zylofon Music says he refused to allow Samini and Stonebwoy to perform at Shatta Wale’s ‘Reign’ concert.

Bulldog said he was aware the two musicians were at the venue but didn’t allow them to mount the stage. According to Bulldog, known in real life as Lawrence Nana Asiamah Hanson, he didn’t allow them to perform because of security concerns.

He told Hitz FM Samini and Stonebwoy’s “managers came to me they were on the ground.” “Myself and my team had done some groundwork” and they realized that it would not have been right for them to come on stage, he explained.

“The fan base is different from the artiste. If we had allowed them, this morning the story would have been something,” the Zylofon Music A&R manager stressed.

According to him, they picked up information that fans were going to vanderlise Sarkodie’s vehicle if he had come there.

He claimed, Stonebwoy’s comments on Hitz FM that Shatta Wale would have lost his life for making claims that he killed his mother, had the tendency of inciting fans to do negative things.

Bulldog urged the media to “cut off” if artistes who come on their platforms to say things that will incite the fans.

Shatta Wale has apologised to rivals artistes, Samini and Stonebwoy, for their inability to perform at the concert. According to Shatta Wale, he was not aware Samini and Stonebwoy were around to support his album launch over the weekend.

Asked by Andy Dosty if he informed Shatta Wale that Samini and Stonebwoy were at the venue, Bulldog said he only told him after the show that they had come to the venue to perform.
