NANA ABA ANAMOAH’S RANGE ROVER NOT REGISTERED – DVLA Clears The Air

The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) has finally commented on the controversy surrounding the registration of a Black Range Rover gifted Broadcast Journalist, Nana Aba Anamoah.

The media personality celebrated her 42nd birthday on Friday, June 19, 2020, and in marking the day, she was gifted a Black Range Rover by an unidentified person.

The car driven by her friend Empress Jamila, a fashion stylist, to her workplace, GhOne TV, caught a lot of buzz on Twitter. But one thing that caught the attention was the number plate of the luxurious car; GR2050-20.

The controversy was heightened when it was alleged a Nissan Rogue Sports Utility had been spotted in town with the same number plate.

Reacting to the controversy in a statement, the DVLA has announced that the number plate on the vehicle purported to have been gifted to the Acting General Manager of GHOne TV, Nana Aba Anamoah is fake.

According to the management of DVLA, the registered vehicle in their system with the number plate GR 2050-20 is that of a Nissan Rogue Sports Utility vehicle and not the Range Rover.

Musician Stephen Fiawoo popularly known as Praye Tiatia has called Ghana’s dancehall king Shatta Wale to order for saying Hiplife artistes are poor.

In a lengthy post on his instagram page in responds to Shatta’s comments, Praye Tiatia said his statement is an embarrassment to Shatta Wale himself and the entire music industry in Ghana to the outside world.

Read his full post below:

“Bro! @shattawalenima Many are those before you who sacrificed a lot to build an industry for all of us to join.The Music industry years ago took blood, sweat, passion and pure talent to entertain Ghanaians for love and country. Legends like @reggierockstone and others sacrificed to pave the way for us in hiplife and afrobeat, including people who sacrificed and groomed you Bandana for absolutely nothing.

You rich pass all of us, yooo wakaa yati but i can assure you your so called riches won’t make top 10 list of rich musicians even in our neighboring Nigeria here norr sef, so bro enough of the disrespect to Ghanaian artistes, producers, DJs and the entire industry you came to meet!

Many artistes are very comfortable but they don’t need to brag and disrespect others like you do. Davido and Wizkid are two of the richest musicians in Africa but they don’t find the need to disrespect their predecessors! You dey embarrass yourself and Ghanaian musicians to the world.

no personal beef here just common sense and morals being shared. We’ve had it with the gross disrespect and ridiculing at any given chance. Brag all you want but learn to respect people who have made sacrifices for you to “eat” today!

There were people before you and there will be people after you. We are grown men and women who also have families, you don’t open your mouth and spew anything anyhow”.

TENANTS BRUTALLY ASSAULT GHANAIAN ACTRESS ELLA MENSAH’S AUNTY

Aunty of Ghanaian actress Ella Mensah, Joyce Dankwa has been brutally assaulted by her co-tenants at Lapaz in Accra.

Mrs. Joyce Dankwa sustained serious injuries all over her body following an attack by her co-tenants named Kofi Ntim and his wife Akua Dufie with the wife allegedly pouncing on her and beating her to pulp.

Mrs. Dankwa has lived with Kofi Ntim and Akua Dufie in the same house for years but they have not had a good relationship.

She disclosed that the co-tenants have been accusing her of being a witch.

“Our issues began when I came to live in the house. Kofi Ntim and Akua Dufie have not been comfortable staying with me and has on countless times made petty complaints and arguments about how I want to let the landlord eject them from the house. They also accuse me of bewitching them. I have not done anything bad to them but they incessantly keep accusing me of things I know nothing about. I remember a time came that Akua Dufie and her husband said if anybody dares to get them out of the house, they will kill that person. So, we have our issues but this assault happened on Monday when I was going to the bath house,” she said in an interview with Peacefmonline.com.

Narrating the incident which occurred on Monday, May, 4, 2020, the victim revealed she returned from town and was in her room when Akua Dufie came out from her apartment shouting at her because she (Dufie) had seen an animal dung in the house.

She continued that the co-tenants have been verbally abusing her but she has done her best to avoid any altercations with them until last Monday when she was going to take her bath that Akua Dufie suddenly swooped down on her and swore to ‘kill’ her.

“She said there was something on the floor in the house that she believes is juju and that I have planted it there against them. I didn’t pick a quarrel with her but went to sweep the dung away and went back to my room. This was last Saturday. On Monday morning, I was going to take my bath but realized Dufie was in the bath house and as result I decided to go some place else where I could bathe. I was fetching water from a barrel when all of sudden, she pounced on me and sank my head deep in the water, and started casting aspersions that she will kill me before they (Dufie and her husband) go to their grave. I was suffocating and in attempt to defend myself, I struggled with her till I slipped and fell on the ground. She didn’t stop but beat me up aggressively.”

Ella Mensah’s aunty further told Peacefmonline that her assailant used a metal rod to repeatedly strike her and it had to take the intervention of some rescuers to stop the bloody assault on her.

The assault victim also disclosed she will have to undergo plastic surgery due to the degree of injuries inflicted on her.

She has filed a complaint with the Tesano Police Station and Kofi Ntim and her wife Akua Dufie will be arraigned before court on Wednesday, May 13, 2020 for justice to take its course.

Peacefmonline.com also spoke with actress Ella Mensah who is currently in America because of the closure of Ghana’s borders due to CODID-19, and she expressed her anger and how inhumane some people can be. Ella has vowed to do everything in her power to make sure those who assaulted her aunty are punished.

Ella however added that she has been communicating with officers in charge of the case at the Tesano Police station and they seem to be dragging their feet and being reluctant in handling her aunty’s case but she would make sure her aunty gets justice.

GH¢50K BET PLACED ON ENO BARONY TO BEAT ANY MALE RAPPER WHO IS READY TO BATTLE

Artiste Manager Bulldog is putting his money on female rapper Eno Barony to defeat any male rapper who dares to face her in a battle.

According to him, none of the current crop of rappers has the fortitude to face the rap prowess of Eno.

For some days now, Sista Afia has ignited a lot of controversy after the release of her song ‘WMT’ on April 22.

While Sista Afia did not mention names, some people have concluded that she took jabs at Sister Derby, Wendy Shay, and Efia Odo in the song.

The song saw counter jabs and reactions from Freda Rhymz (released ‘KMT’), and Eno (released ‘Rap Goddess’).

Sista Afia released ‘You Got Nerves’ after that, prompting Eno to also drop ‘Argument Done’. Freda Rhymz, who didn’t want to be left out of the beef party, also released ‘Point of Correction’.

While the females are having a go at each other, Bulldog, who manages dancehall act Shatta Wale, has stressed that the female rappers are not Eno’s competition.

Speaking on Showbiz 927 on 3FM with MzGee, the artiste manager noted that the female rapper is even better than 97% of male rappers in Ghana currently.

“Eno, I have said countless times, she is better than 97% of the boys. Don’t even bring the women to start with…” he said.

Bulldog explained that with the exception of Obrafour, Okyeame Kwame, Lord Kenya, Tinny, and Kwad3e, Eno is better than the rest.

“Somebody will say oh me I be guy so I no go battle girl but you try bring your head, the girl will end your career,” he dared any male rapper.

To prove his confidence in the female rapper, Bulldog placed a GH¢50,000 bet on Eno to beat any male rapper who faces her in a battle.

“I can put money on it so they battle…I have my money on Eno.”

Born Lawrence Nana Asiamah-Hanson, Bulldog noted that Eno has been more consistent with her rap than male rappers today and his only worry is that the males won’t be clean when they face her in a beef.

“If Eno went head-to-head with somebody like M.anifest, M.anifest will be clean [unlike other rappers’.”
