EKOW MICAH REFUSES TO SPEAK TO HIS LAWYER IN COURT

Drama ensued in court today when reggae musician, Ekow Micah, who is standing trial for possessing substances suspected to marijuana, refused to speak to his counsel and rather opted to speak directly to the judge.Ekow Micah -2A journalist, Edem Mensah of Ghanaian Times, who was in court, reported that Ekow Micah entered the Accra Circuit Court with his arms raised up calling on the judge.

Trial judge, Judge Aboagye Tandoh, noticing the gesture, asked the musician to channel whatever information he has through his lawyer, David Percy, which he refused.

Several attempts by the judge and court officials to get Ekow to speak to his lawyer proved futile prompting the judge to call for a recess.

Asked why Ekow was requesting to speak with the judge directly, Edem said he suspects the musician has lost confidence in his lawyer and was trying to inform the judge.

The journalist said, the reggae musician accused the lawyer of not being interested in the case because he has not heard from him since the last adjournment on September 10.

Ekow refused to talk to his lawyer prompting another to mediate and attempt to resolve the impasse. The case has however been adjourned to Friday September 25, 2015.

On August 4, Micah was arrested by the Airport Police over an alleged extortion case against Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan currently under investigation.

The following day, the Police and the accused person visited his house to conduct a search and in the process, a quantity of dried leaves suspected to be Indian hemp was found.

This is how the car looks after the accident

The artiste was returning from Aburi on Sunday September 20 2015, where he had performed at an event when the crash happened. Kdei and his team survived what could have been a fatal accident.

Kasapafmonline has reported that the accident happened some few metres away from the toll booth near the Aburi Girls Senior High School in the Eastern Region, where Kdei, who was leading a team of two cars in his Jaguar, pulled his brakes to allow a Fulani herdsman to cross the road with his cattle.

The second driver, unfortunately, bumped into the Jaguar, as it failed to control the breaks, leading to some substantial damage to the two cars. The cars have since been sent to the workshop for assessment and repairs.

The artiste has since taken to his Instagram page to speak of his experience. In a post shortly after the accident, he wrote:

“I do thank God for rescuing me and my team from this fatal accident this afternoon. We had a great show yesternight in Mampong and on our way back to Accra this afternoon, my two cars got this fatal damage. But in all, I give thanks to God.”

“GURU IS VERY WICKED!” – RUFF N SMOOTH

Ghanaian Afro Pop duo Ruff N Smooth is not too happy with Rapper Guru.

Guru - Ruff N Smooth

The “Swagger” hit makers claims Guru has betrayed them because he performed their single “Send Your Fire” which he (Guru) featured on in Gabon over the weekend.

According to Ruff N Smooth they told Guru not to perform that particular song because another event house in Gabon had booked them for $10,000 just to come perform that same song very soon.

However, Guru who according Ruff N Smooth agreed not to perform the song closed his performance with “Send Your Fire” and the duo wants Guru to pay them about $10,000 for using the song or face legal action.

“He performed a lot of his hit songs and yet he couldn’t desist from performing just one Ruff N Smooth song even though we asked him not to perform that particular song. I just can’t understand. He is wicked! Guru is a very wicked”, Bullet of Ruff N Smooth stated on Pluzz FM this morning.

According to Bullet the fact that Guru featured on the song does not give him the right to perform at anywhere and anyhow he wants.

“I WILL NOT FEEL SORRY IF MY PREDICTIONS COME TO PASS”- KUBOLOR

Rapper Wanluv has disclosed that he would not feel sorry if Bishop Daniel Obinim, Archbishop Duncan Williams, Pastor Chris and Prophet T.B Josuah die as he has predicted in his new single.

WANLUV KUBORLOR

After predicting the death of four pastors, Wanlov the Kubolor says he will not feel remorseful should any of his predictions comes to pass.

The rapper who recently released a song titled, Very Soon in which he predicted the death of four pastors (Bishop Daniel Obinim, Archbishop Duncan Williams, Pastor Chris and T.B Josuah) has come under criticisms from a section of the public.

When show host, Abrantepa, asked if someone will be wrong to say that once he recorded the song, he meant the lyrics in there, Wanlov answered;

“No they won’t be wrong; they won’t be right either. Because, at the time I recorded it, I was in total agreement with my perception; but I could become friends with one of those guys tomorrow and I may be sad if something I have predicted comes to pass. At the moment, I wouldn’t have any feeling of remorse if any comes to pass”, he disclosed on Radio Univers.

The member of music duo, FOKN Bois, however stated that the lyrics of the song is only a prediction; not a wish.

“Prediction is different from a wish. I just predicted how they will die and not wished them dead. I’m not wishing for them to die. This is the style for which they will die,” he said.
