Made In Ghana: Okyeame Kwame Unveils Album Cover

  • Mar 23, 2019

The time music lovers have been waiting for is inching closer than one would have imagined. The much-anticipated launch of the 'Made in Ghana' album is scheduled for April 20, 2019, at +233 Jazz Bar and Grill – and there is beautiful album art cover to it. The cover has Okyeame Kwame standing in between two lofty talking drums, wielding drum sticks. The talking drum, is an archetypal Ghanaian musical instrument that represents language. Tuned to low and high tones, it is used to communicate messages in most Ghanaian linguistic settings. According to Okyeame Kwame, the huge fontomfrom drums in the 'Made in Ghana' album cover simply tell how loud he is drumming home the message of patronising Ghana in this project. The drums are bigger than him - which means the voice (message) is more important than the vessel (Okyeame). Also, the soul of Rhythmic African Poetry, a trade which Okyeame has perfected for the past two decades, these drums symbolise Okyeame's adeptness in his field of endeavour (rap). He is clad in a warrior-like attire which is a hybrid of traditional and modern apparels - with an ahenema (traditional slippers) to match. This means that modernity influences culture and that tinging culture with other cultures should not result losing one's self and identity. The background art has a monkey which represents the monkey sanctuary. It also has the Independence Square, the Adomi Bridge, Okomfo Anokye, Mountain Afadjato – which all signify historical events and personalities of Ghana. The 'Made in Ghana' project is to highlight the virtues of all groups of people in Ghana across the various regions as it also encourages Ghanaians to be proud of their culture and heritage. The music videos will showcase some tourist sites in Ghana as Kwame's contribution to marketing Ghana's tourist sites. Already, two songs have been released off the album; the theme song 'Made in Ghana' which features KiDi and 'Bra' which features Wutah Afriyie. After the album launch on March 29, 2019 music lovers will have a tastes of the other great songs on the album. Dietena ft Wiyaala & king Ralph, Bolgatanga Girl ft Abiana & Atongo Zimba, Yenzima ft Fancy Gadam, Nkunim ft Feli Finest and Bra ft Afriyie (Wutah). The rest are '1956' ft Kurl Songs & Ayesem, 'Ino Be My Matter' ft. Kuami Eugene, 'Kpa' ft. Wulomei and 'Melowo' ft. Feli Nuna. Okyeame Kwame is gradually emerging as a 'Made in Ghana' hero as he has shown without a shred of doubt, his dedication to imbuing the pride of Ghana in Ghanaians. The 'Made in Ghana' ambassador really deserves a national honour from the President for championing this cause through music. source:modernghana.com

Afia Schwar has been ordered to return a car given to her by TV Africa

  • Feb 12, 2019
  • g/Entertainment
  • Simons
This is not cool: Management of TV Africa has directed Comedienne, Afia Schwarzenegger to return the brand new black Hyundai Tucson (4×4) she is driving as a prerequisite employers for any outstanding financial settlement. According to a statement issued and copied to MyNewsGh.com, it is regrettable and disingenuous that madam Afia Schwarzenegger born Valentina Nana Agyeiwaa would take to social media to snuggle out a non-issue, knowing very well she has a TV Africa property in her possession that needs to be returned. This is contrary to media posts by Afia Schwarzenegger that her former employers, TV Africa, owe her an amount of GHS 16,000.00 but TV Africa has stated categorically that assertion is clearly not factual and unsubstantiated. According to TV Africa, Afia seems to have deliberately turned a blind eye to the tenets of her contractual agreement with her former employers that has resulted in this delusion. Afia’s contract was officially terminated by TV Africa after she had breached her contractual obligations by going on some traditional media and social media platforms to announce her resignation from the station. It is important to note, however, that per her contract, Valentina had to give a one-month notice to management as a condition that needed to be fulfilled before she could abrogate her services. But this she clearly flouted. That notwithstanding, a letter dated January 21, 2019, to Valentina Agyeiwaa stipulating the “rules of engagement” for both parties to resolve the situation went unanswered.

Our DNA test shows my wife and I are Ghanaians - Hollywood star Michael Jai White discloses

  • Jan 8, 2019
  • g/Entertainment
  • Kwaku
Popular American Hollywood actor, Michael Jai White has disclosed to his fans and the world that he and his wife are Ghanaians. Micheal was recently enstooled as a King in a Ghanaian traditional area, Akwamu with a stool name, Nana Akoto lll. In a prolix post on his IG page, Michael Jai White showing his appreciation revealed that he and his white did a DNA test and both himself and his wife ancestry were traced primarily from West Africa, Ghana to be precise. According to the combative artist whose net worth is in the region of $3.5 million, he came back home to Ghana, where his ancestors were taken from and he will continue to bring awareness to our beautiful culture. He wrote” “It was an incredibly high honor to be enstooled (crowned) a king of Akwamu in Ghana. I am now a Ohene (King) with the title of Nana Akoto lll, Odopon “The Tree With Strong Roots That Does Not Fear The Storm”. I was not expecting this as you can probably tell by the look on my face but I am truly proud to be a part of the Akwamu of Ghana. My wife @iamgillianwhite is now a Ohemaa (Queen) Queen Mother. It’s fitting because we both had our DNA tests done and both of our African ancestry is primarily West African/Ghanaian. I have come back home to the land my ancestors were taken from…and I will continue to represent and bring awareness to this beautiful land and rich culture. Awkabaa! ?? “ https://www.instagram.com/p/BsMRofEFFKP/?utm_source=ig_embed

Last Hour Post - Ghana Showbiz’s 11 Most Memorable Moments In 2018

  • Dec 31, 2018
  • g/Entertainment
  • Dausi
It has been a year of successes, sorrow, fun, feuds and disappointments in Ghana’s entertainment industry. As 2018 grinds to a close, I have put together some of the events and happenings that got rave reviews not only in the entertainment space but also got typically non-showbiz people talking. 1. Ebony dies in accident: 2018 started on a very sad note. We lost arguably the most ebullient artiste of our time in a car accident. Twenty-year-old Dancehall star, Priscilla Opoku Kwarteng known in music circles as Ebony Reigns died in a car crash at Mankranso in the Ashanti Region. Ebony, was returning from Sunyani in the Brong Ahafo Region when the Jeep she was travelling in crashed into a VIP bus on Thursday, February 8, 2018 evening. Ebony was travelling with three other people, two of whom also died. The two included Ebony's friend Franky Kurie and military officer Atsu Vondee. Her funeral was held at the forecourt of the State House in Accra on March 24, 2018. Preceding the funeral was a vigil concert at the Trade Fair Centre. Other celebrities that passed away in 2018 include Super OD, CK Mann, Professor Attukwei Okai, Jewel Ackah, MacJordan Amartey, among others. 2. Moesha Bodoung on CNN: One issue in 2018 that got a lot of people talking was when model and actress Moesha Bodoung told CNN's Christiane Amanpuor during an interview that “being a mistress is a financial decision,” and that like many Ghanaian women, she dated a married man for her livelihood. She explained that the reason these women dated men with mistresses was because the economy in Ghana was hard. “In Ghana our economy is such a way that you need someone to take care of you. You can't make enough money as a woman here. Because even when you want to get an apartment, in Ghana they take two years' advance and I just started working where will get money to pay?,” she said. The host who looked shocked by Moesha's response asked: “are you basically telling me that you are having sex with this guy to pay your rent?” “Because he can afford to take care of you. He takes care of me, my financials, my apartment, my car, my rent, everything,” Moesha said. While some thought her statement cast a dent on the image of Ghanaian women, others said it was the true representation of the situation on the ground. 3. Patapaa goes mad at VGMA organisers: 'One Corner' hitmaker, Patapaa, went berserk at the Accra International Conference Centre during the 2018 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards. He was angry for losing out to Fancy Gadam in the 'Song of the Year' category. Due to how big the song was in the year under review, a lot of people had tipped him to win that category, only to have been surprised when Fancy Gadam’s ‘Total Cheat’ was announced as winner. Patapaa who had already gained so much attention for his oversized blue suit on the night walked out of the auditorium when Fancy Gadam was announced the winner. He claimed he had been cheated. He even insulted the organisers of the awards scheme but later came out to apologise. 4. Chief Moomen vrs. Ghana @ 60 organisers: Ghanaian poet and playwright, Chief Moomen, in July engaged in some verbal exchanges with the committee that organised the activities for the ‘Ghana 60 Years On’ celebrations. According to a post he put up on Facebook, the committee had not paid the GHS 100, 000 due him. He said he had charged GHS 200, 000 but they paid only half and failed to settle the remainder. In his post, Chief said he was facing the most difficult time of his career, as government's huge indebtedness to his company has put it on a verge of collapse. The situation, he claimed, put his subsequent stage production in jeopardy as he had to deal with the huge debt he incurred producing a play at the behest of the government. In his emotional appeal, the famed poet lamented that government had contracted him to show his 'Wogbejeke' theatre as part of activities to mark Ghana's 60th anniversary celebrations in March, and has since paid only half of the bill. According to Chief Moomen, several attempts to get government to pay the other half of the bill proved futile, forcing him into a terrible financial situation. He said he has had to put his car on sale to help raise money to sustain his business. However, the Chairman of the ‘Ghana 60 Years On’ Committee, Ken Amankwah came out to say they had no agreement with Chief Moomen to that effect and that he was even ‘lucky’ to have been paid GHS 100, 000. 5. Celebrity marriages: Some Ghanaian celebrities got married in 2018. In fact, the first one that got a lot of people talking was that of actor and politician John Dumelo. He got married to his fiancée Gifty Mawunya Nkornu at a private wedding ceremony in Accra. According to sources, Mawunya is a relative of actress Selassie Ibrahim and a close friend to actress Nadia Buari. Ghanaian musician Michael Owusu Addo, popularly known as Sarkodie in music circles also tied the knot with his girlfriend and ‘baby mama’ Tracy this year. The rapper whose wedding information leaked on social media, reportedly performed the traditional marriage rites on Tuesday, 17th July, 2018 at a secret location in Tema. He received plaudits from a lot of people, especially considering the fact that he had dated Tracy for many years and even has a child with her. Another celebrity who got married this year is Ghanaian singer Rebecca Acheampong known in showbiz as Becca. She got married to Tobi Sanni Daniel, former business manager for Nigerian artiste, Ice Prince. And then Ghanaian actor and broadcaster, Chris Attoh married for the second time after his first marriage with Nigerian actress Damilola fell apart in 2017. The private ceremony took place at North Kaneshie in Accra on Saturday, October 6, 2018. Chris' new wife, Bettie Jenifer, is Caribbean-born, based in the United States of America. The last celebrity marriage in 2018 took place in Tema. Gospel musician Gifty Osei tied the knot with politician Hopeson Adorye. Hopeson Adorye, who is the Deputy National Security Coordinator in charge of Airports, lost his wife in March 2017 after a long battle with cancer. Last year, news had it that Gifty Osei had divorced her husband of 10 years, Prophet Prince Elisha Osei. Reports about Gifty and Hopeson's relationship were rife when the two were seen together at public programmes. 6. Fella-Medikal-Derby Love story: The Love Triangle! That’s how I call it. The year has witnessed a gossamer of love story involving musicians Medikal and Sister Derby, and actress Fella Makafui. It all happened when news broke that Medikal had jilted Sister Derby for Yolo actress Fella Makafui. Medikal expressed his love on social media for Fella Makafui, glorifying her body and throwing shades at Sister Derby. He had said in one of his open letters that Fella had taught him true love and there was nothing wrong leaving one woman for another. Sister Derby also released a song titled ‘Kakalika Love’ suggesting that Medikal will also treat Fella the same way he did to her. However, Fella remains unfazed by all the backlash. She says she is enjoying the relationship and will have fun as long as it lasts. She has stated that she is not scared about what the future holds for the two of them. 7. Stonebwoy-Zylofon-Shatta fight: In 2018, Stonebwoy had issues with Zylofon Media and his record label mate Shatta Wale. Stonebwoy was engaged in a scuffle with some officers of his record label, Zylofon Music, who had gone to Champs Bar to take from him, a car purported to have been given to him by the company. He reportedly fired a gunshot to scare them away. Stonebwoy had earlier been to the University of Ghana to perform at the Artistes Night of the Hilla Limann Week Celebration. At the order of Stonebwoy and his management, the organizers took off all Zylofon Media banners. This deepened speculations that the 'My Name' hitmaker may have severed his relationship with Zylofon. It was speculated that Stonebwoy felt uncomfortable promoting Zylofon Music in his activities because they had signed his rival Shatta Wale on the label and were giving him special treatment. The feud escalated when Stonebwoy appeared on Hitz FM and poured his heart out about Shatta Wale’s claim that he [Stonebwoy] killed his mother. 8. Sarkodie advises Shatta Wale: Shatta Wale, typical of his maverick character, kept throwing shades at a lot of musicians, claiming he was richer than all of them and that his other colleagues are poor. This seems not to have gone down well with Sarkodie who decided to do a song to ‘advise’ his one-time friend, Shatta Wale. Even though he did not mention a name in the song, commentaries on social media pointed out that it was a diss song targeted at the dancehall artiste. In the song, Sarkodie addresses the character who he claims is fond of discrediting other people and describes reserved people as not smart. He states in the song that he has always advised the character but he does not heed his advice. Sarkodie in the song challenged that wealth was not in bragging about a house and cars. 9. Kwesi Arthur at BET Awards: Ghanaian hip-hop artiste Kwesi Arthur could not win the Best New International Act award at the BET Awards as had been anticipated by most Ghanaians. The 'Grind Day' rapper lost the Viewers' Choice award to South African artiste Sjava at 2018 Black Entertainment Television (BET) Awards held at Los Angeles in the United States America. His nomination came as great news to most Ghanaian music fans particularly because no Ghanaian musician made it to any of the categories, unlike previous years. This year, there was no Ghanaian nominee for the Best International Act category. Kwesi Arthur was nominated alongside Prince Waly (France), Mc Soffia (Brazil), Take A Mic (France), Niniola (Nigeria), Sik-K (South Korea), Nailah Blackman (Trinidad And Tobago), Not3s (UK), Iamddb (UK) and Sjava (South Africa). 10. Comedian Waris and Teacher Kwadwo Wahala: In a fledgling comedy industry like Ghana’s, it was unfortunate that two incidents cast a dent on all the hard work that had been put in by Ghanaian comedians in 2018. Ghanaian comedians had worked very hard by organising their own programmes and were gaining more visibility on social media but hey! there came the bad moments. Comedian Waris made a bad joke about Sarkodie’a daughter that got him in hot waters. He tweeted, after seeing Titi’s new photos that the two-year-old girl was ripening and soon men will start ‘eating’ her. Remorseful of his post, he apologised but another comedian (and a professional teacher) Teacher Kwadwo who had defended him also landed in trouble. His banter with some women on social media goaded feminist group PepperDem Ministries to dig out rape-related posts he made in the past on Facebook. The group petitioned Huawei Mobile which had signed on Teacher Kwadwo as an influencer to cancel their deal with him. They also asked the Ghana Education Service to sanction him. The Technology company Huawei Mobile later announced that it had severed its relationship with Teacher Kwadwo. The announcement came a few days after the comedian took to social media to disclose that he no longer had any contract with Huawei. 11. Wendy Shay’s ‘Dumb Question: To some people, it was right for Wendy Shay to have told Joy News' MzGee that a question she asked her after one of her performances was dumb. Journalists have on many occasions been chided for not asking relevant questions. But was Wendy entirely right to have to cut the interview after describing the reporter's question as “dumb?” The artiste in one of her responses had said she wanted music lovers to “accept me for who I am as Wendy Shay.” What triggered her 'dumb' response was when she was asked: “Who are you as Wendy Shay?” The issue has engendered debates on various media platforms as people discuss the propriety or otherwise of the actions by either party. But in a Facebook post, Sarkodie wrote that the artiste, who is quite new in the music industry, may have acted on reflex. He added that Wendy's answer to the interview was not right; promising to apologise on her behalf. source: modernghana.com

Renowned Sports Journalist Saddick Adams SportsObama' has written that he loves the concept behind Shatta Wal's "My Level" music video. Below is what he wrote: I love the concept of Shatta Wale's 'My Level' video on a literal note. The guy sends a very powerful message with the new piece! 1. He started as a normal guy in an ordinary house setting with friends who appear to be drooling over him. 2. Even children love him so bad that a young girl gifts him her balloons. 3. He walks through town and everyone including market women cheers him. 4. With the help of the balloons, he starts flying higher and higher. Starts seeing everyone and everything below him. 5. Sees some guys in need and splashes down some wads of dollars down. Pocket is full and dripping dollars 6. Keeps rising and rising that everything appeared so minute. Popped Champaign and enjoying life up there 7. Kept flying higher and higher and higher into the nothingness of the skies. Then BOOM. Balloons burst. 8. He's falling off with the speed of lightening. 9. He has nothing to hold on to and is falling badly. He looks terrified. But no one is watching as he falls because it is in the deep forest. 10. He falls, but no one knows what he fell on. A cushion or rocks? To be continued?.. check out the video here http://youtu.be/AlPJpiklo54

Salif Keita 'retiring to fight albinism stigma'

  • Nov 30, 2018
  • g/Entertainment
  • Ahmedz
According to ghanaweb.com,Salif Keita, one of Africa's biggest musical stars, is giving up making albums so he can spend more time fighting the stigma that some fellow albinos in Africa face, his wife has told the BBC. Coumba Makalou Keita said the 69-year-old had made the decision after completing his last album Un Autre Blanc (Another White), which was released earlier this month. Mrs Keita runs the musician’s Salif Keita Global Foundation, set up to support people with albinism in their home country of Mali and other African nations, and she says her husband wants to spend time promoting its work. People with albinism - a genetic condition leading to a lack pigment in their skin - are hunted down in several African countries, including Malawi, Mozambique and Tanzania because of the belief that potions made from their body parts can bring good luck and wealth. Mrs Keita told the BBC: “He is incredibly important to the foundation because of who he is in the world, in terms of his music and his accomplishments.” The foundation is based in the US, but provides grants for health services and legal assistance for those at risk of persecution - and distributes hundreds of tubes of sunscreen, sunglasses and hats each year. Mrs Keita said: “Because of this and his fame it definitely helps to bring a focus and media attention to people with albinism in Mali and other places in the world, so his presence is very important, his name is very important." When he is in the process of making an album, it eats up a huge about of his time, she says."He writes and composes all his own music." Salif Keita, seen here with a kora, performed on the streets and in bars before making it bigImage caption: Salif Keita, seen here with a kora, performed on the streets and in bars before making it big Born into an aristocratic Malian family, Keita - known as "the golden voice of Africa" - has dedicated much of his music to promoting the rights of people with albinism. Mrs Keita said: “The title of the album Another White was definitely linked to his albinism because he’s white buthe’s not a white man, a white race - so he’s another type of white." He launched the album in the town of Fana, 126km (78 miles) east of Mali’s capital, Bamako, where a five-year-old girl with albinism, Ramata Diarra, was ritually killed and beheaded in May. He dedicated the concert to Ramata - and the shocking murder prompted him to take his activism more seriously. Keita has been a fighter since he was young - disowned by his father for choosing music as his career he has become one Africa's most influential musicians with his unique style of blending a range of local African music with popular genres such as jazz, rhythm and blues. His wife says his retirement from album making won’t mean he’ll stop performing altogether, but it will give him more time to concentrate on another of his surprising interests - farming. “We have a lot of land in Mali and his father was a farmer so he’d like to do some work on that too.”

At the AFRIMA held last Wednesday, When nominees for the Best Artiste, Duo or Group in African Ragga, Reggae and Dancehall category were mentioned, it was obvious it was a straight the fight between Ghana’s Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy. However, the night was more favourable for the BET Award for Best International Act:Africa winner who beat a strong contest not only from his number one music rival, Shatta Wale but the other notable names such as Nigeria’s Burna Boy, Patoranking, Diamond Platnumz, DJ Moh Green, Jah Prayzah, Roberto, Sauti Sol, Van and Ghana’s MzVee. In his appreciation message that obviously sought to ‘shade’ Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy accorded 'respect' to the other contenders by mentioning all but Shatta Wale's name and ended with a solidarity message for his “brother from another mother”. A statement that elicited deafening laughter from patrons. Apart from Stonebwoy, Ghana didn’t disappoint as host of the fifth edition of 2018 AFRIMA which was a collaboration among International Committee AFRIMA, the African Union(AU) and the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Ghana. AFRIMA is an annual award show established by the International Committee AFRIMA, in collaboration with the African Union(AU) to reward and celebrate musical works, talents and creativity around the African continent while promoting the African cultural heritage. AFRIMA has been held in Lagos, Nigeria since it was established in 2014. This year is the first time Ghana is hosting the event which was organised in collaboration with the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture.

according to Yen.com.gh Young Kumawood actress, Maame Yaa Konadu Jackson, has stated that she cannot date someone who is poor. According to her, as a lady, she has needs and wants like owning a brand new (tear rubber) car which a poor man cannot provide. Speaking in an interview on the Delay Show, Yaa Jackson emphasised that it will not be in the best of a poor guy to date her because she will likely cheat on him to get her needs provided. "Every lady deserves a guy who can take proper care of her. Someone who can buy you food and buy all that you need," she stressed. In the revealing interview, the young actress who celebrated her birthday recently disclosed that she was dating an MP but had to break up with him. The MP, she stated, refused to open a makeup shop for her because she was not sleeping with him. Touching on rumours that she once dated fellow young actor Rahim Banda, Yaa Jackson explained that Banda was like a brother to her and she will not date him because he did not have the means to buy her a 'tear rubber'. She also blasted her critics on social media saying most of them were hating her because she was more beautiful. Many of these haters, she added, wished they could be wearing some of her expensive clothes which she claimed cost as much as GHC1,000.When asked who had been giving her the money to buy such clothes, the 17-year-old disclosed that it was her previous boyfriend. The actress, daughter of a popular Kumawood movie director, Jackson K. Bentum, burst onto the as a child actor alongside her contemporary, Maame Serwaa, over 10 years ago. Maame Yaa who has been off the screens for some time now is also known to be a singer. She recently released a single titled 'Tear Rubber', probably inspired by her thoughts. Her revelations, especially the one about the said MP, means she as a 16-year-old girl was dating someone who could possibly be older than her father and has virtually used (spent his money) and dumped him.
