ESHUN EXPOSES WENDY SHAY

Highlife musician eShun has complained about how Ruff Town Records signee Wendy Shay ignored her when she tried reaching out to her.

Speaking on e.TV Ghana, the songstress explained how she tried reaching out to her colleague, Wendy after she was misquoted to have called the latter talentless.

“I tried reaching out to you, Wendy Shay, and you didn’t say anything. I don’t know whether it was Bullet who told you not to speak to me. I sent her a DM [Direct Message], so let’s just assume she hasn’t seen it,” she said.

The host Foster Romanus then tried to find out if she did more after the direct message she sent to get her attention.

“I actually wrote a whole essay about it on my timeline on Instagram explaining what I actually said or what I meant and I tagged her and everybody kept tagging her so I’m sure she has really seen it,” she stated.

eShun is said to have stated that the ‘Uber Driver’ hitmaker is talentless, but she refuted that and gave what she actually said thus:

“No, I never said that I think she’s beautiful and when they asked me, these were my exact words, I think Wendy Shay is very talented, with the help of a coach, she’ll be even better…”

“Wendy, you’re talented when you get a coach you will be even better, even me who has gone through ‘Mentor’, ‘Project Fame’, if I get a coach today, I’ll grab him or her and be better,” she stated.

THE PRESSURE ON ME TO MARRY IS EMOTIONALLY STRESSFUL – Gloria Sarfo

Actress Gloria Sarfo has disclosed that the pressure from friends and especially family members for her to get married is stressing her emotionally.

Gloria who is also a TV Presenter on Angel TV is begging all who have been asking her to get married to slow down, because she is not happy about the unsolicited question.

The Efiewura star, says the pressure on her to get married is tearing her apart and has gone public asking, especially society, to bear with her as at the right time, she would find herself her own man to walk down the aisle with.

Gloria argues marriage is an endless journey and so she wants to get ready mentally, physically, spiritually, before settling down. The talented actress who has starred in both Twi and English Movies said it gets embarrassing when occasionally people question when she is going to get married.

According to her, the pressure gets even worse, when she attends family meetings and gatherings, family members keep piling up the pressure.

She said, she finds herself in a peculiar situation because her younger sister is already married and coupled with the fact that she has a big body, anytime she attends some of these family gatherings, she is treated as though she is pass marriage.

Gloria, who doubles as a television presenter said society, religion and others, have made it so difficult for women who get to certain age bracket and are not married to feel incomplete.

She said today’s marriage is not like that of old and so one needs to psych herself, before entering because it comes with a lot of cost, demands and preparedness.

“Me personally, the one after me is married, so when it gets to the gatherings and family meetings and all that, chalie, the bashing is too much everybody”.

“Especially, when you are fortunate and have good big body like me….. eei you are growing ooo, you are growing, it is emotionally stressful. The society, the pressure is too much, the pressure is too much on me”, she decried.

Gloria was part of a panel that discussed the topic ‘30andunmarried’ on Ghone television ‘Late Afternoon Show’ hosted by Berla Mundi last Friday.

DNA TEST REVEALS GHANAIAN BOXER EMMANUEL TAGOE IS NOT THE FATHER OF HIS 14-YEAR-OLD SON

Former IBO Lightweight Champion, Emmanuel Tagoe aka Gameboy had a shock of his life when a DNA test proved that he has been fathering another man’s child for 14 years.

The shocking news was revealed by sports Journalist, Saddick Adams on his Twitter handle.

The Ghanaian boxer was dragged to an Accra Circuit Court by one Ms. Diana Otoo, mother of the child, citing neglect of paternal duties.

The 29-year-old claims he had always felt suspicious a conspiracy by the family of the woman who, he says plotted to siphon monies from him.

Tagoe insisted he had always paid GH¢500 as monthly stipend for the upkeep of his supposed son but the family insisted he pays more.

Speaking to Saddick Adams Obama on Atinka TV’s Sports Court show, Tagoe said the lady’s family had taken him through hell, and only wanted to damage his reputation through blackmail.

“These people have really made me suffer. If not for my mum, I would have done this DNA test long ago but anytime I mentioned, she insisted I accept the child”.

“I was paying GH¢500 a month but they could come out anytime and take money that the child was sick. Already, I was taking care of the child but I was shocked when they started demanding more money”.

“They even demanded that I send the child to the same school where Asamoah Gyan’s children were schooling but I didn’t have that kind of money”.

In July 2018, the family of Ms Otoo contacted Atinka FM’s Sports Court show with documents from DOVVSU and an Accra Court indicating that Tagoe was suppose to pay them an amount of money but has refused.

Tagoe however decided for a DNA test, the result of which proved he was not the father.

“I was very sure that this boy was not mine but my mum had gagged me. We were young when I was playing ‘Pilolo’ with the girl. We were just standing and I had sex with her. I didn’t even ejaculate but her family came home later to say the girl is pregnant for me”.

The court asked me if I can sue them for damages but I have left everything to God. Everything I gave to the child, I won’t take it back. He deserves it, not the mother”.

“The most important thing is that, now I am free”.

PROMZY OF VIP FAME LOSES MUM

Rapper Promzy, who is well known for his unique and immense contribution to the group, VIP, has unfortunately lost his mother.

The musician took to social media to announce the sad demise of his beloved mother on Monday.

“Just lost my mum. Even though it’s a painful state now, I’m trying to cope and be strong. God knows best. Have a wonderful week kings and queens,” he said on Facebook.

“When you find your path, you must not be afraid. You need to have sufficient courage to make mistakes. Disappointment, defeat and despair are the tools God uses to show us the way,” he further said in an additional image to the post.

There is no detail about the cause of death. Again, there is no further detail about who she was but Promzy has, in the past, reportedly made posts about her on Facebook emphasizing a strong bond between them.

“Mum’s my heartbeat and moon light (love you so much)

Pops my strength and sunlight (r.i.paradise… I really missed you)…,” he posted on Facebook last year on September 11.

Promzy was a member of VIP, one of the first music groups which emerged during the early stages of hiplife.

They produced some of the massive hits the country has ever had. In 1998, they released their first album, ‘Bibi Baa O’.

In 2000, they released their second album, ‘Ye De Aba’, which was more successful than their first album. Their third album, ‘Lumbe Lumbe Lumbe’, in 2001 had the smash hit song, ‘Daben Na Odo Beba’.

In 2003, VIP took the music industry by storm with their album, ‘Ahomka Womu’. The ‘Ahomka Womu’ song was number one on the Ghanaian charts for over 20 weeks.

VIP won several awards at the Ghana Music Awards and the group gained international exposure after this success. In 2013, the group announced that Promzy was no longer a member, but they didn’t really state what led to their split-up.

REX OMAR BLASTS AKOSUA AGYAPONG FOR ACCUSING GHAMRO OF CORRUPT

Chairman of the Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO), Rex Omar, says musician Akosua Agyapong is completely ignorant about the collective management of the organisation.

Akosua Agyapong, had lambasted the entire executive body of GHAMRO including Rex Omar, describing them as extremely corrupt.

But speaking in an interview with JoyNews’ Doreen Avio, Rex Omar refused to react to the allegations on the grounds that he considers Akosua Agyapong his sister.

Akosua Adjepong

The the ‘Abiba’ hitmaker, however, stated that female highlife artiste and television personality is ignorant. He also suspects Akosua is on the agenda of calling them corrupt individuals.

“She is completely ignorant about collective money. I am sorry to say this but I have decided not to mind her. Sometimes I feel ashamed that she is very close to me and she doesn’t know anything about collective management and she goes about disgracing herself,” he said.

Rex Omar suspect Akosua Agyapong’s deliberate attempts to foil GHAMRO’s efforts could stem her failure to attain a license from the Attorney-General’s Department to run a different collective management.

Rex Omar also revealed that GHAMRO has set up a committee to listen to grievances and complaints of musicians.

According to him, Akosua Agyapong has failed to honour invitations by GHAMRO on three different occasions to tell the committee her problems.
