Renowned Hiplife artiste Kwaw Kese says he is shattered by the revelation by popular dancehall artiste Shatta Wale that Bulldog admitted to murdering someone.
Shatta Wale made the wild allegation against his former manager Monday claiming Bulldog in a fist of rage, admitted to killing someone but failed to mention the name of the person.
“I have repeated the part about him threatening to kill me twice and I won’t hide it. Somebody asked him; Bulldog are you not the same person who has issues to answer in Ghana about things like these, and he responded; don’t mind him, I will kill him like I killed the other guy,” Shatta said at a news conference on Pluzz FM in Accra.
It is unclear the individual the King of the Shatta movement was referring to but Bulldog was charged over the murder of another entertainment personality Fennec Okyere last year.
Okyere was the manager of ‘Abodam’ until his death. Bulldog has, however, been acquitted and discharged in the case. But speaking on Starr Midday News, a sad Kwaw Kese told News anchor Kwaku Obeng Adjei that he hopes the Police would resurrect the case based on the claims by Shatta Wale.
According to him, the claims by Shatta Wale are “serious” and must not be ignored by the Police. “My day has been miserable since I heard Shatta Wale say the things that he said…I think the things he said are serious and the Police must not sleep on it,”Kwaw Kese said.
Ghana’s Dancehall king Charles Nii Armah Mensah popularly known as Shatta Wale has alleged that his former manager, threatened to kill him.
“I have repeated the part about him threatening to kill me twice and I won’t hide it. Somebody asked him; Bulldog are you not the same person who has issues to answer in Ghana about thing like these, and he responded ; don’t mind him , I will kill him like i killed the other guy,” the Shatta Movement king told the media at press conference in Accra today.
It is unclear the individual Shatta made reference to, but Bulldog was charged over the murder of another entertainment personality Fennec Okyere last year. He has, however, been acquitted and discharged in the case.
The ‘Dancehall Commando’ hitmaker also alleged that his former ally is responsible for his poor public image.
“I remember in some time past, he recorded my conversations and sent them to people abroad”.
He added that Bulldog was cheap and was taking monies from people in his name without his consent. Bullhaus Entertainment last week, officially announced the end of the working relationship with the maverick entertainer.
“The management of Bullhaus Entertainment wishes to bring to the notice of the general public that we no longer have a working relationship with multiple awards winning artiste, Charles Nii Armah Mensah A.K.A. Shatta Wale effective immediately,” the statement said.
It added: “We are humbled to have been part of the success story up until this point, and wish Shatta Wale all the best in his future endeavours. We also wish to thank Shatta Wale and his Shatta Movement team for choosing us as managers for his professional career for these past years. We will forever be fans of Shatta Wale and his music and still believe in the mantra of the Shatta Movement. ‘Shatta Movement for life”.

Reliable information reaching Nkonkonsa.com is that, the CID Officer, Mr. Richmond Ayayi, who was handling Asamoah Gyan’s case in which four personalities are alleged to have conspired to extort money from the star, has been kicked off the case.
Richmond Ayayi has been kicked off the case because he is amongst four police officers who were arrested some weeks ago for allegedly stealing 50,000 Ghana cedis from five Indians who were engaged in suspicious activities at Osu, in Accra.
The officers were sent from the Airport Police Station to effect arrests after reports that the Indians were stashing huge sums of money and gold bars in a residential facility. The officers are believed to have taken the monies from the suspects but refused to account for it in full when the matter was reported to their superiors.
The money, kept in huge bags, was released to the suspects after Deputy Employment Minister Baba Jamal intervened. Richmond Ayayi was arrested and put behind bars and was later granted bail.
Nkonkonsa.com gathers that one police officer by name Perpetual was asked to handle the case – since she was an assistant to Ayayi. But currently, Richmond is no longer the investigator on the case and does not also report to work due to the alleged corrupt conduct he found himself in.
Nkonkonsa.com can confirm that the new CID on the case is called Evans Adu. Evans Adu is the one who takes musician Ekow Micah to court each time the case is heard in court.
Ghana’s onetime Rap heavyweight champion turned pastor Evangelist Lord Kenya has condemned Prophet Ofori Amponsah’s sudden u-turn to go back to Highlife music.
Kenya said Ofori told the world in 2012 that he had been called by God and that he was not going back to Highlife music so he cannot understand why he (Ofori) is going back to sing worldly songs.
An emotional Lord Kenya speaking of Peace FM’s “Entertainment Review” said he feels sad how his brother Ofori Amponsah is being ridiculed in the media after he released his latest single “Alewa” featuring Sarkodie.
Lord Kenya is convinced that there is something definitely wrong somewhere responsible for Ofori’s current situation.
“I feel sad how this issue is out there and everybody is saying what they like and I keep asking myself what has happened in my brother Kwame Ofori’s Amponsah’s life because there is something wrong somewhere”.
Lord Kenya said Ofori Amponsah called him in 2012 to tell him that he (Ofori) feel deep within him that he wants to do the work of God. He said he met Ofori, prayed for him and introduced him to one Bishop O. Ansah who helped them spiritually and even financially. Kenya admitted that worshiping God is sometimes very difficult “but what can stand between you and your God”, quoting Romans 8:35.
He believes some forces are pushing Ofori’s current double standards situation and he (Ofori) is allowing himself to be used. Evangelist Kenya warned Ofori Amponsah live on radio“Today, if through Kwame, somebody doesn’t get a change of mind and the person goes back and something happens, Kwame I want you to know that that person’s soul, God will ask you”.
He said Ofori is acting directly opposite what he told him as his spiritual brother because all of a sudden he is allowing himself.
“All of a sudden you have allowed yourself and look at what people are doing to you and look at what people are saying to you on radio. You are a man of God they cannot talk to you like that. There is something wrong somewhere”.
According to Lord Kenya he has been defending Ofori Amponsah in the media and everywhere but when he released his new Highlife song, he has been trying to reach Ofori but for some reasons Ofori has refused to pick his calls.
Lord also warned Ofori that he and others Christian brothers who have been with Ofori since he started doing the work of God would not allow some evil forces to take Ofori Amponsah back to the world.
“Enough is enough! They are talking and they are saying too much. It’s time for you to go back to room, look for somewhere, go to Akyia mountains or somewhere quiet and speak to your God because your God is capable of saving you to do His work. Don’t listen to what some people are telling you”,Lord Kenya emphasized.
Reacting to Lord Kenya’s passionate appeal, Ofori Amponsah who was live in the studios of Peace FM thanked Lord Kenya and promised to contact him for further discussions between the two of them and possibly get spiritual advice from him.
He however, pointed out that since Lord Kenya is his spiritual bother, he would have preferred if he spoke to him personally than rather coming on radio because not everything can be discussed on radio.
Highlife Singer and Evangelist Ofori Amponsah has denied rumors making rounds in the media that he said he is not a pastor.
Ofori Amponsah’s manager Frank Agyekum has revealed in an interview with Peacefmonline.com that Ofori Amponsah’s statement has been taken out of contest.
According to Frank, Bolaray asked Ofori during an interview, what he (Ofori) would do if he has an event to perform on a Sunday morning and he is also supposed to preach to his congregation at the same time and Ofori answered that he has other junior pastors who can take his place so you would rather attend the event and perform to change the lives of others.
According to Frank the issue of not being a pastor came in when he (Ofori) was asked if he would consider himself as a pastor when he performs on stage or inside a night club.
Frank explained that Ofori said he is only a Pastor when in church or preaching the word of God anywhere but he is not a Pastor if he is on stage or performing inside a night club.
“Ofori said his a pastor when he is in church, evangelizing or preaching the word of God anywhere but he is a musician when is on stage or performing anywhere”, Frank stated.
Meanwhile Ofori insisted he is still a Pastor and the general oversea of his own church during an interview on Neat FM’s “Entertainment Ghana on Tuesday.
Deputy Communications Minister, Felix Ofosu Kwakye in an interview with Happy FM’s Showbiz Xtra has revealed that the satirical piece going round about Mahama asking TV3 to reinstate Nana Aba has no basis.
“It hasn’t got any basis and I haven’t seen any mainstream website, newspaper or radio station carrying the story because they know it’s not true. So if we come and talk about it, then we are rather giving it more prominence and they have mentioned it’s not true so we can’t go and follow up on it.
We don’t have the power to tell the publisher not to write that and we can’t drag them to court because they have a disclaimer stating it’s not true. The only thing to do now is to ignore it because anything you say now will raise issues to another level.
The one who wrote the story wrote beneath it that it’s satirical so it’s obvious it’s not true. TV3 is a private organization and so we can’t go and tell them what to do. If someone is sacked at Happy FM, the President can’t come and order the company to reinstate the person”,the Deputy Communication Minister said in a phone interview.
Popular TV presenter, Nana Aba Anamoah’s was taken off air by management of TV3 exactly after a supposed “prank” on Twitter.
A statement signed by the Chief Executive Officer of TV3, Mr. Augustus Dickson, described Nana Aba’s conduct as online information theft and unprofessional misrepresentations.
“After preliminary investigations internally, and in accordance with TV3’s own commitment to the highest level of professionalism, management has decided to take Nana Aba Anamoah off air until further notice.”
“As a broadcast network that prides itself in upholding high ethical standards and delivering credible and trustworthy content to its viewers, TV3 would like to assure viewers and other key stakeholders that it shall continue to take all necessary steps to maintain such standards,” the statement noted.
Outspoken TV presenter Nana Aba Anamoah’s Photoshop prank on twitter has cost her job at Kanda based TV3.
Exactly a week after the “Divas Show” hostess tweeted a ‘fake’ selfie, her employers have taken her off air because according to management of TV3 Nana Aba’s conducts amounts to “online information theft and other unprofessional misrepresentations”.
This rather hush reaction from TV3 has attracted serious backlash with several people waging a campaign on social media to bring Nana Aba back. Hence the #bringbackNanaAba campaign initiated by reigning Comedian Derick Kobina Bonney popularly Known as DKB.
The award winning Comedian who is currently Ghana’s comedy king has begun a solidarity campaign for TV3’s News anchor, Producer and Presenter Nana Aba Anamoah who has been taken off air. The campaign is tagged #bringbackNanaAba to bring to attention of TV3 the need for them to tamper justice with mercy.
Nana Aba Anamoah who has been with TV3 for many years projecting the image of the Network was taken off air due to media reportage, alleged online information theft and unprofessional misrepresentation relating to her. Ghana’s comedy king DKB who doubles as a good friend of Nana Aba and guest Presenter of a comedy segment “Lighter Note” on TV3’s breakfast show “New Day” co-hosted by Nana Aba believes ” To err is human, to forgive is divine” hence the #bringbackNanaAba solidarity campaign.
He is therefore calling on the management of Tv3 to forgive and consider bringing Nana Aba Anamoah back on air. Other Celebrities including popular Radio Presenter Abeiku Santana of Okay FM, actor and movie producer Prince David Osei among others have pledged their support for the campaign.
Popular Ghanaian TV presenter, Nana Aba Anamoah has apologized for posting somebody else’s pictures on twitter last Sunday, which suggested she was at her favourite team, Manchester United’s game in England.
The owner of the said pictures on that day, expressing shock on twitter about Nana Aba’s claims and subsequently released other photos to show Nana Aba deliberately cropped him out of those pictures, to create the impression she was at the stadium.
The revelation quickly ‘sparked fire’ on twitter, as they mocked her and challenged her to respond. Nana Aba uncharacteristically went ‘dead’ on twitter for hours and tweeted something to test the waters.
That tweet did very little to calm the social media frenzy. “My intention was not to steal someone’s pictures as mine. Absolutely not,” Nana Aba tweeted on Thursday in a series of tweets.
Nana Aba has apologized and clarified that she was only joking when she tweeted the said photos. “Sorry to all who got offended by that joke,” she added.
Nana Aba who is also an ardent fun of Manchester United maintained her unflinching support for the football club saying “my deep passion for Man U remains unchanged. I am a football fanatic.”
