Peace FM’s entertainment show host, Kwasi Aboagye has described the unknown lady who featured in Kumi Guitar’s ‘Betweener’ video as ugly and a bad choice for the video.
It was sad and still remains sad that the wife of the late Fennec Okyere was not involved or allowed to even attend the funeral service of her husband, owing to the fact that the family are not on good terms with the wife…
It makes me question our sense of awareness as humans and whether we even understand our positions on this earth. Someone is dead, and you are fighting with another person—when you can also be gone tomorrow.
What is the essence of holding grudges? Should Fennec’s death not teach these people that, life is too and as such, spending time to hold grudges is pretty useless?
Anyway, according to NewsOne, Peace Fm’s Kwasi Aboagye who decided to find out on radio why Fennec’s wife was not allowed to attend the funeral service and was excluded from the planning was nearly beaten when he visited the family…
Read the full report below…
It has been confirmed that Amarkie, the wedded wife of murdered artiste manager Fennec Okyere, was prevented from attending and partaking in the final funeral rites of her late husband.
It seems all is not well between the widow and the family of her late husband.
She was not allowed to see the corpse of her murdered husband and also prevented from taking part in his burial, memorial and thanksgiving services.
Though no official reason has been given for preventing Amarkie from playing her role as a widow, reports said Fennec’s family members had said they could not guarantee the widow’s security if she dared show her face at the funeral.
Though the family has not officially explained why they prevented a wedded wife from taking part in the funeral rites of her husband, a statement from Fennec’s funeral brochure accused her of abandoning Fennec while he was alive.
“His greatest wish was to have a loving family of his own because of his difficult early life, but this wish was never fulfilled, as his wife left him two months after their marriage and never returned to live in the matrimonial home till he died,” a portion of Fennec’s biography noted.
Interestingly, broadcast journalist Akwasi Abagye, host of the Entertainment Review on Peace FM, was assaulted by Fennec’s family members because he had raised the issue on his show.
“When I got to the house, I was talking to Fennec’s mother when his elder brother, the pastor, came around and told me he was not happy with me at all (apparently for giving the widow a chance to speak on my show).
“Suddenly, I was surrounded by about 50 family members who were all screaming on me, verbally assaulting me and saying all manner of things. One of them even poked a finger into my face, the finger hit my glasses but I kept my calm and I am sure they would have beaten me up if not for the younger ones who were around and restrained them,” Akwasi Aboagye told News-One.
Amarkie has a young son with Fennec and the couple had not divorced prior to Fennec’s death.
I will start this article by quoting myself ‘It is difficult to be a real critic but more difficult to be really criticized…’
Interestingly, Entertainment in Ghana has gained remarkable grounds with many radio stations holding several discourses each week aimed at strengthening the fast developing industry.
Though prominence is mostly given to Music and Movies, occasionally, several sectors of the Art industry is considered—-and those who sit on the ‘talking benches’ seem not to be accountable to anyone.
Today, I’ve decided to hold some of them accountable, the same way they hold others accountable with their sharp and sometimes, rough teeth.
I will look at the popular Entertainment Radio Shows in a sequence, starting with Peace Fm’s Entertainment Review hosted by Kwasi Aboagye…
Now the Host-Kwasi Aboagye
With many years of radio experience, you cannot really find fault with the presenting structures he throws unto the table each week. When he has a to host interview segments, he pushes the boundaries to ask the hard question, which has in the past abruptly ended some of his interviews—-simply because, it gets tough for the persons at the other side.
On Entertainment Review, Kwasi Aboagye’s primary responsibility centres around being able to hold his panel within reasonable moderation, thereby ensuring they do not stray off the pathway and probably not throw punches at each other—when dissenting.
With a robust approach and strange sense of firmness, Kwasi is able to bring on path when there is an attempted escape. Occasionally, he is forced by his own underlying principles to join the discussions in length, especially when he feels his panel members are losing focus on the substantive issue.
