Update on Castro & Janet Bandu’s Disappearance: Janet Bandu’s Father Says Asamoah Gyan and Castro’s Family Have Not Still Come to See Him

The Castro and Janet Bandu’s disappearance is really sad—but what is heartbreaking is the fact that, Asamoah Gyan’s people and Castro’s family have still not gone to officially see Janet Bandu’s father, or officially inform him of the disaster.

Courtesy and Culture demand that, at least Castro’s family or Asamoah Gyan’s people who were responsible for Janet Bandu’s trip to Ada should have visited Janet Bandu’s family—and officially inform him of what happened.

But according to Janet Bandu’s father who spoke on Hitz Fm, up to date everything he knows about his daughter’s disappearance is from the radio—and none of the parties who took his daughter to Ada have come to even see him…

Nothing should have stopped Asamoah Gyan from putting together an entourage to visit Janet Bandu’s family and officially inform them of what happened to their relative but he doesn’t seem to get it…

Listen to Janet Bandu’s father below…

Foreign Acts Missing in 2014: Is It That Event Organizers Did Not Have Enough Money to Hire Them Or Our Artists Proved We Don’t Need Foreign Acts in Ghana?

Over the past years, event organizers have contracted foreign artists for musical shows in Ghana, but this year, the status quo seems challenged.

In fact, our showbiz industry started importing foreign acts as far back as the 80s and 90s. I recall at a young age, the massive reportage and media attention Yellow Man received when he was billed to perform in Ghana in the 90s. He polled massive crowd at the National Theatre and gave a top-drawer performance. The concert had rave reviews in Ghana’s media circles.

Then entering the new millennium when a number of event organizers began emerging, the orientation of bringing foreign acts into Ghana intensified. It almost became a competition, where if an event organizer could fly a foreign act into Ghana it meant they are richer, influential and well connected – a jejune competition if you ask me!

Over the last 20 years, we have imported not less than 50 A-list foreign artists to perform on our soil. List of some of them include, Steve Wonder, Boys to Men, Cool and the Gang, Isaac Hayes, Alvin Slaughter, Bow Wow, Don Moen, Jimmy Cliff, Shaggy, Ron Kenoly, Sizzler, Cece Winans, Donnie McClurkin, Kirk Franklin, Busta Rhymes, Rick Ross, Jay Z, Amber Rose, Keri Hilson, Fabulous, Beenie Man, Akon, Eric Donaldson, Seal Paul, Demako, Movado and Chris Brown.

Indeed, the importation of foreign acts into Ghana for musical concerts has always not met the full delight of Ghanaian artists and art critics. On the artists’ part, they always kvetch of how event organizers give preferential treatments to foreign acts over them.

Preferential treatments such as: payment of huger professional fees to the foreign acts, provision of expensive and prestigious hotels to accommodate them, meeting of all the technical riders of the foreign acts, inability to have collaborations with the foreign acts, amongst others.

The Awful Nature of Ghanaians | Why Can’t We Tell Those We Love the Truth?

black woman

 

As a Ghanaian, I have observed with disgust how untruthful many Ghanaians are—especially to the people they claim to love and those they ought to be sincere to.

Of course it is difficult to look into the eyes of someone you love, cut the ‘bullshyt’ and tell the person the truth that he or she hates to hear. But if you love someone, telling the person the truth that will make the person a better person in the long run should matter more than scoring some good points in the person’s book with lies…

Ghanaians are a bunch of insincere people—and not just to themselves but to those around us too. We are full of sugar-coated words and when something is awful, we say it is beautiful; one of the key reasons we never seem to get far with achievements.

Most Ghanaians live in total denial and this is made worst by the fact that the people around them continue to tell them the ‘bull’ they want to hear—knowing that, they are not doing this person they love any good.

Last week, I attended an event and two friends sat behind me. Soon after they sat, a third friend who must have been running late joined them and the moment she sat down; she asked, what do you think of my dress and hair?

She caught my attention with her question and when I turned; I nearly said ‘disaster’ because that is the only right word befitting how this lady was dressed. But her friends showered on her all manner of praises, saying she looks great and if they were to hold a dress competition, she would definitely win.

When this third lady excused herself to use the bathroom less than 30 minutes later, the two women laughed hard, saying all manner of things about their friend—and they went as far as calling her a loser for that bad hair and dress.

VIDEO: Angry TV 3’s Nana Aba Anamoah Spits On Viasat 1

Signals making ways on social media – Facebook strongly suggests that two of Ghana’s revered TV channels, GHone and Viasat 1 are at each other’s throats over who has better contents, presenters, and larger viewership in the broadcasting trade in Ghana.

The whole drama started when Host of The Pundit on GHone, George Quaye, posted some comments on his Facebook, saying: “Oh ok…so that’s the kind of game they want to play? Nice….its situations like these that awaken my alter ego. This definitely deserves a response from Aboagye..or? Like Ola Rotimi said, “he who pelts another with pebbles, should expect rocks in return…” #‎awardstime Let’s have some fun. Lol”

But what motivated George’s action? Viasat 1 has started a new award for their morning show called IGWE ….sorry JIGWE Awards and in one of their categories, they nominated Ghone, UTV, TV3 as Copy Cat Stations and then they nominated GHone presenter, Blackboi and Naa Ashorkor as LAFA Presenters

But Head of Own Production at Viasat 1, Sadeeq Abdulai Abu, who does not give a hoot about how GHone feels, has also replied George Quay’s post – also through his Facebook wall, stating without fear, “So we hear that, a far smaller and less engaging TV channel, Ghone intends to take viasat1ghana on for being the best and the nations number 1 entertainer.

More Findings On Fennec Okyere’s Murder But Ghana Police Is Not Ready to Speak Out – What Could They Not Be Telling Us?

Fennec-Okyere

Fennec-Okyere

Ten (10) months after the murder of manager of hiplife musician Kwaw Kesse, Fennec Okyere, the big question the public and art critics keep asking the police service is: Where has the police service reached with investigations on the case?

The nation woke up on 13th March, 2014 to the sad news – Fennec Okyere shot dead. Later, it came out clear that he was actually stabbed to death by unknown assailants at his residence in Spintex – a suburb in Accra.

In the course of their investigations, the police arrested Bull Dog, Manager of dancehall artists, Shatta Wale, on Thursday, 15th March, 2014 in connection with the murder of Fennec. However, after 2 court hearings on the case, the police service have since not made any new findings on the case to the public – despite the clarion call on them to do so.

In an exclusive interview with PRO of Ghana Criminal Investigation Department, ASP Joseph Darkwah, to find out where their investigations have reached on Fennec’s case, he was evasive in his responses. “Well you know, it is not everything we disclose to the public on our activities.

“Exactly where we have gotten to, I can’t give that out. It’s like a doctor examining a patient – you don’t just put out report. When we are through with investigations, we shall make our findings public – whatever that is in it, will be made known but for now that we are still on investigation, I can’t give information until we are done.”

Contrary to the general sentiments which seek to suggest that the police are not working on the case or have perhaps closed docket on it, ASP Darkwah assured that they are assiduously working on the case. “We are seriously working on the case. I can tell you that we have advanced in our investigation with more findings. We have really advanced but we cannot put that out until we are through with our investigation.”

Boko Haram Release Video in Which They’re Slaughtering Civilians They Deem Infidels

Boko Haram

Boko Haram

If it’s not beheadings in Syria, or killing children in Pakistan, then it would be Boko Haram slaughtering innocent civilians.

This trend of terrorists doing whatever they want in the name of their god is worrying, and how they are able to justify these absolutely horrific acts to themselves is mind boggling.

A video released by Boko Haram and obtained by MailOnline show the Islamic insurgents shooting hapless civilians in a town in Nigeria which has been identified as Bama.

In actions horrifically reminiscent of what happened in the army school in Pakistan, the civilians are lying face down and the insurgents just fire into their midst. So many are killed and you can see the floor literally littered with corpses.

“We have made sure the floor of this hall is turned red with blood, and this is how it is going to be in all future attacks and arrests of infidels” their leader frighteningly declares.

“From now, killing, slaughtering, destruction and bombing will be our religious duty anywhere we invade”

The ‘First Fruit’ SCAM!

A woman holds 03 July 2007 in Accra a wa

 

If you have a father who you trust to protect you, bless you, provide for your every need and has many mansions paved with silver and gold – is it not ambiguous of him to ‘order’ you to give all your money to him as an act of faith to see if he would not provide for you in the future bearing in mind that you have to eat, clothe, shelter and fix weave?

Some (majority) of pastors search the bible, looking for quotes that can be used to make merchandise of men. The year is almost coming to an end and some overzealous churches have started giving envelopes to collect ‘first fruit’ in January. First fruits I got to know is the salary/wages of the first month of a new year. So, after paying tithe every month/week, sowing seeds for any and everything I want God to do for me – then in January, after counting down the days to payday as some people do after squandering all their money to celebrate Christmas, they should give the money to the pastor as first fruits – this is daylight thievery now.

Christmas is Almost Here: I Would Be Celebrating But Should Christians Be Celebrating It?

father Christmas

 

It’s been a long debated topic, what are the true origins of the Christian celebration of the birth of Christ. With this year almost at its end, it is a topic worth revisiting.

Christmas is quite possibly the biggest global holiday, celebrated in most of the world. Even in many non Christian countries festivities are carried out just in accordance with the season, especially because The New Year is the New Year everywhere, and Christmas is just a week beforehand.

So should Christians be revelling in the festivities reserved for the 25th of December every year? What are the origins of the choice of date, and what are the meanings behind those.

To begin with, the bible makes no mention of the birth date of Jesus. It cannot be proven that Jesus was born anywhere near December; and whilst even a mention in the bible would not have been incontrovertible proof, at least it would have been something you could hang your hat on. As it stands even that does not exist.

As with most things surrounding organised religion, a group of people sat somewhere and made a decision for the rest of the populace. When it occurred that the birth of Jesus had to be celebrated, a convenient time was chosen, one that would help in converting heathens of the time as well as be the most attractive to followers of the faith.

As sources, I’m using two pieces I found in my research; one making the argument for Christmas and the other against Christmas. What both agree on though, is that 25th December has significance far predating the birth of Christ.

I Am Sleeping With Your Boyfriend | A Woman Tells Wizkid’s Girlfriend & She Has Photo Evidence

Wizkid

Wizkid

It doesn’t really hurt if you are not aware that another woman or man is banging your partner—but if the person comes right to your face and tell you, it goes beyond the hurting box. Your dignity is breached and you must leave to keep the little self-respsct left.

Of course many women who are with celebrities for the money or fame will not leave even if another woman does not just claim she is having affair with their men—but presents photo evidence too.

A certain woman has written to Nigerian Blog-BellaNaija.Com with photos showing Wizkid in her bed, telling the musician’s girlfriend that, she has been chopping down her man.

According to this mystery woman, she had an adventurous night at Eko Hotel with the Nigerian musician and she wants her girlfriend-Tania Omotayo to know.

What a disrespect…

But would Tania Omotayo even think about leaving or evaluating this? We don’t think she will even attempt to discuss it with Wizkid for fear of losing him.

Check the email and photos the mystery woman sent…

Rihanna

Rihanna

Ronald Fenty blessed the world with Barbadian beauty Robyn Rihanna Fenty, but he’s been a constant cause of worry for the talented singer. Whilst RiRi is no saint herself, her father has problems on a whole other level.

Ronald has battled a drug addiction in the past, but in recent times his main problem has been an alcoholic one. In an interview with MailOnline, he has revealed how that has caused strains in his relationship with his famous daughter, the lengths she has gone to help him stop drinking, and other issues concerning RiRi.

Rihanna held a Diamond Ball event during the week, and Ronald got kicked out for drinking. The incident happened even before the singer got there, but she got wind of it and is furious with her dad, considering the lengths she has gone to got him back on track.

Rihanna apparently spent $58,000 to put him through rehab in Malibu, after he got arrested and the judge gave him the options of rehab or jail.
