At the 2018 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, his ‘Grind Day’ hit song was adjudged the Hip hop song of the Year. He is currently out with a highlife song titled ‘Woara.’

I HAVE A MAN, GO AND GET YOURS – Efia Odo Blasts Delay

Actress and TV host Andrea Owusu popularly known as Efia Odo yesterday came out to angrily lash out at controversial TV Presenter Deloris Frimpong Manso, known as Delay for involving herself in her relationship.

The actress, 25, did not take kindly to suggestions by the Delay Show host to keep her relationship on the low because the guy she was dating now had massive flaws and could make her relationship go south soon.

On hearing this, “Heels And Sneakers” star took to the micro-blogging website Twitter to call out Delay and suggest she leaves her alone.

She wrote “Dear Delay, I’m sorry I don’t sleep with peoples husband(no shade), that’s why I’m able to show MY MAN to the world. Why should I hide someone I’m so proud of, flaws and all? If a relationship will fail, it will be due to lies distrust insecurities and miscommunication. But we good!”

KENNEDY AGYAPONG ACCUSES ANAS OF PAYING AFIA SCHWARZENEGGER TO INSULT HIM

The vociferous Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Mr Kennedy Ohene Agyapong claims investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas paid Ghanaian actress and comedian Afia Schwarzenegger to insult him.

According to Mr Agyapong, who has vowed to expose alleged corrupt deals of Anas, he has in his possession transcripts of Facebook chats between Anas and Afia Schwarzenegger to that effect.

“…If Anas will pay Afia Schwarzenegger to insult me and I have the Facebook conversations between them, I have it,” Mr Agyapong said in an interview with Accra-based Joy FM.

When quizzed about the authenticity of the Facebook chats given that Anas in the past has complained about persons impersonating him on social media, he said such justifications make the investigative journalist appear as though he is the smartest person on earth.

“You know, he gave his numbers to Afia Schwarzenegger… I know what time it is, you make him seem like he’s the smartest person on earth but he’s not. So how I got that information you will see.

“When I am responding you will say that I have to tone down. Look at the insults Afia Schwarzenegger has rained on me but everybody is preventing me not to speak because I can go down and down with this girl”.

Afia Schwarzenegger has in the past traded insults with Mr Agyapong on several television and radio programmes.

Meanwhile, the Assin Central MP is expected to face fresh allegations of contempt of parliament today for allegedly referring to the house as useless.

“DON’T REJOICE TOO MUCH, YOU MIGHT LOOK STUPID AGAIN ” – Fella Tells Efia Odo

Actress and entrepreneur Fella Makafui has fired back at Instagram star Efia Odo for accusing her of not ‘working for her wine shop’.

A few minutes after reports claimed that Fella Makafui’s wine shop located at East Legon had been shut down by her alleged boyfriend, Efia was very quick to pass her comment on it.

She said in a Snap post that “when you own your own sh*t no n*gga can take it from you” – indirectly claiming that Fella didn’t work for her wine shop.

In response to this, Fella has indirectly slammed Efia Odo, suggesting that she (Efia) might look stupid in the end yet again. The “YOLO” star actress, in a Snap post on Monday, June 18, said: “Don’t rejoice too much, my love…you might look stupid again for the second time!!!!”

Fella and Efia have been at loggerheads for some time now. The two recently engaged in a social media war over the late Dancehall musician Ebony Reigns.

It all started with Efia Odo when she accused Fella of sleeping around with men to make ends meet. Fella has since been on the low but her clapbacks have been brutal.

PATAPAA DENIES DATING ACTRESS XANDY KAMAL

The singer behind the “One Corner” banger and known in showbiz as Patapaa has denounced Ghanaian Actress Xandy Kamal.

The actress in an interview claimed she was dating the most sought after artiste of the moment in Ghana.

On Instagram, using the name PataXandy and on regular basis, she updates her followers on her relationship with Patapaa now known as Patapeezy.

There were reports the two had taken their love a step further after Patapaa reportedly purchased a ring for her when he went on a tour in Europe recently.

But speaking to Joy News at the just ended 2018 edition Ghana Meets Naija, Patapaa said he is not dating Xandy and that they are just friends.

“No, she’s not my girlfriend… we are just friends,” he said. Patapaa added “I’ve never told that girl anything about love.”

He said he isn’t prepared for a relationship now, so the likelihood of some fondness between them is absolutely not feasible.

EBONY’S DEATH HAS BROUGHT ME CLOSER TO GOD – Efia Odo

She is known for her racy pictures so when she posted images of herself well covered up on social media recently, many were those who believed the lifestyle of actress, Efia Odo, has changed.

Well, those harbouring such thoughts should have a rethink because that is not happening.

Efia Odo, who is currently a co-host on Head Start and The Arena on Kwese Free Sports says she has no plans to change anything about her style.

“ My new pictures don’t mean anything. They do not mean I have changed or regret anything about myself. I host a TV show now and the thing is, I cannot wear bikinis to the office so I take photos in what I wear to work”, she told Showbiz on Tuesday.

According to her, covering up in her pictures does not mean she has become a different person, “It is interesting ohh, please I have not changed. There is nothing to change about me, I am still the bubbly and I -don’t-care- kind of person.

It is normal for people to expect that I take on some kind on rebranding just because I have taken up a new role as a TV host but no, I’m still me. The same old Efia Odo,” she added.

However, while Efia Odo, real name Andrea Owusu, insists she will not swap her lifestyle for any other, she has taken a second look at her relationship with her Maker after the death of her friend Ebony Reigns, who passed on through a gory accident in February,

“If there is anything that has stirred some change in me then it is the death of Ebony.

Her demise has brought me closer to God, my prayer life has intensified. Her death got me thinking and asking myself a lot of questions since I don’t not know when I will also be called to eternity.

“ I questioned my relationship with my fellow human beings and I asked myself, does it mirror the love the Bible preaches about?

How is my forgiving nature like?

How many times do I involve God in the things I do?

Where will I go after this life among others?

“I asked all these questions and I decided to do better in my relationship with others, be happy, and apologize when I go wrong. It’s in this spirit that I publicly apologized to actress, Fella Makafui when I threw shades at her.”

Efia disclosed she is happy with where she is now in her life, “I love what I am doing right now at Kwese TV.

I don’t have any formal training in hosting a TV show but I enjoy what I do. I had to learn on the job and the team has also been amazing.”

Born in Ghana, she left for the United States at the age of five until she returned to the country a couple of years ago to pursue her passion for acting.

Efia, who holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from the Nyack University in the US says her ultimate goal is to take her career beyond the shores of Africa.

KOJO ANTWI HONOURED IN BURKINA FASO

Multiple award-winning Musician The Maestro Kojo Antwi, also known as Mr Music Man, has been honoured in Burkina Faso.

The first-ever Ghanaian honoree at the BET Awards who has also received the Kora Award was honoured at the Marley D’or 18 in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso on Friday 11th May, 2018.

The date marked 37 years since the death of Reggae Music legend Bob Marley. In commemoration of the legacy of Bob Marley, the positivity of his lyrics, the potency of his social, cultural and political commentary, the beauty of his music and the worldwide promotion he gave the Reggae music genre, organizers honoured Reggae musicians of African heritage who continue to bear the torch.

The Marley D’or celebrates Reggae music icons whose craft helps identify African music in a world now mostly fixated with pop and its quick imitation for commerce.

Whilst imitating or drawing inspiration from hit songs and recent commercial successes from different parts of the world to create substitution for imported genres, it is vital to the cultures of Africa and her sons and daughters in the diaspora, the Caribbean included, that some skilled and creative artistes identify with a decidedly African sound, record, perform and promote to showcase the uniqueness of our cultural products from others.

Alpha Blondy, Kojo Antwi and Lucky Dube are outstanding performers of Reggae music who have inspired and influenced many in Africa from the 80s to date. It is thus not surprising that this honour was conferred on one of them at this year’s event.

The singer-songwriter and outstanding live performer’s honour was for his notable contribution to Reggae music and its promotion of culture and tourism.

“Believing in our art and maintaining our difference, like Bob Marley did, are what make African musicians and creatives like Mr. Music Man KOJO ANTWI unique and timeless”, said the organizers.

Celebrated reggae artistes at the Marley D’or 18 event included Ishmael Isaacs (Ivory Coast) Solo Koko Dembele (Mali) Oscibi Johan (Burkina Faso) Hah Hunt (Ivory Coast and Kwamy Mensah (Spain).

The Marley D’or 2018 adds to The Maestro Kojo Antwi’s many national and international honours. He has over 130 songs to his credit, many of them Reggae, Highlife or Afro Pop.

NANA ABA ANAMOAH’S ‘BABY DADDY’ WISHES HER HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY

Richard Brown, the estranged “baby daddy” of media personality, Nana Aba Anamoah, has taken to social media to wish her well on the occasion of Mother’s Day.

Richard who has been engaged in a media cold war with Nana Aba over their son, Paa Kow Anamoah, sought to take the high road by putting his differences with the broadcaster aside and wishing her a happy Mother’s Day.

Sharing a beautiful picture of Nana Aba on his Facebook page, Brown praised her as the best mum in the world and asked for God’s blessing for her.

“Happy Mother’s Day to the best mother in the world. May God bless u and grants u all ur needs in his mighty name. Amen ,”he wrote.

Brown recently made the news when he declared publicly for the first time that he was the father of Nana Aba’s teenage son. He made the declaration in a post on Facebook after Nana Aba had shared some fun photos of her with her son on Instagram.

Before then, the identity of Paa Kow’s father was not known to the public, and Brown’s public declaration prompted Nana Aba to delete the pictures she had shared.

It is not known what caused the bad blood between Brown and his baby mama, but some reports suggest that he abandoned Nana Aba when she got pregnant with her son at a time she needed him most.

Other reports accused him of failing to taking responsibility for his son for many years and showing up to claim him only when it was convenient for him. But Brown has denied those reports, stressing that he took care of Nana Aba and the child and even sponsored the broadcaster’s education.

He said it was Nana Aba who had prevented him out of anger from seeing his son. According to him, all efforts he made privately to be part of his son’s life were blocked by his baby mama.

It is not clear if Brown’s latest gesture of goodwill will impress Nana Aba and prompt the top broadcaster to reconsider her relationship with him.
