If there’s one thing that breaks a group up faster than anything, it’s the desire by any of the members to go ‘solo’, branch out and do their own thing. Most groups that come to an end do so due to many issues, but more often than not it’s that desire to be a solo artist.
Ebony’s manager, Bullet of Ruff ‘N’ Smooth fame has said that his artiste who recently died in a gory car accident was very spiritual. Bullet explaining why he posted screenshots of WhatsApp chats between himself and Ebony indicated that he wanted the critics of Ebony to know that she was very spiritual.
Manager of singing sensation Ebony Reigns, Ricky Nana Agyemang aka Bullet, has revealed how he got a start in artist management. According to Bullet, it was by the grace of EIB Network CEO Bola Ray that he got a good headstart as he gave him an amount of $10,000 to get started.
Ebony is the subject of the trending conversations in Ghana (aside homos*xuality), due to her style of dressing and the criticisms it draws her. The conversation went up by a notch after she slightly showed the whole Ghana her tonga at the 4Syte Music Video Awards.
Ebony’s marketing strategy is really selling as she keeps getting invites from show to show to explain why a 20-year-old girl like her quit High School to go braless countless times to show off her melons for the cameras in pursuit of being a proud bad girl who is a Musician.
According to the “Kupe” singer who was on the KSM Show Friday night, she has a tough skin for the life she has chosen and the negative criticisms do not bother her especially because those criticisms come from hypocrites who can’t do what she’s doing.

Bola Ray and his Empire Entertainment team have created a very big brand out of nothing that is progressively and simultaneously bringing Ghana and Nigeria together to showcase Africa music to the world. With just a year old and going into its second year, the ‘Ghana Meets Naija’ musical show has been fully embraced and endorsed by both governments of the two countries. Ghana and Nigeria already have a cordial relationship through football matches, diplomatic and bilateral arrangements, cultural exchanges and in other areas. Beyond these, both governments believe that, music is another way of bringing them more closer together.
Following the endorsement by the two governments, GhanaCelebrities.Com has learnt that, Empire’s office has received numerous calls on daily basis from producers and label owners in other parts of Africa, so as their artistes will get the opportunity to feature on the show, a platform they see spectacular for their artistes. Despite the pressure mounting, it is the hope that, Bola will still remain focus and won’t defeat from the core aim of the ‘Ghana Meets Naija’ brand, which is to assemble the very best of Ghana and Nigeria musicians on one platform. The brand itself is a unifier with a sole aim of championing peace and co-existence between the two countries who have become role models to the rest on the continent. After it’s launched, the general public received the news with mixed feelings concerning artistes billed to perform at the show slated for Saturday June 30 at the Dome of the Conference Centre. The organisers are fired up for the event and the buzz is in town. The criteria for selection of artistes have also become a major concern for many and have since been discussed on various platforms with varied views. Some have asked why certain artistes didn’t make the cut to be on the show. The maiden edition took place last year and it was seen as the biggest in-door event in Ghana by industry pundits. The show paraded D-Cryme, Ruff N Smooth, Efya, 4X4, Stay J, VIP, Kwaw Kese and Sarkodie, whiles the Naija brothers paraded J-Martins, 9ice, 2Face Idibia, and Naeto C.
The maiden edition of the ‘Ghana Meets Naija’ musical concert was last year introduced to celebrate and unite musicians in Ghana and Nigeria. The brand is growing with exciting packages and it is swiftly becoming a force to reckon with. The idea was conceived and birthed by MC extraordinaire, Bola Ray, nurtured by his Empire Entertainment crew to bring the two West African countries together on one stage in the musical realm. The brand itself is a unifier with a sole aim of championing peace and co-existence between the two countries who have become role models to the rest on the continent. Ghana Meets Naija in its second season is perhaps the first and the biggest concert on the African continent where the very best of artistes with smashing hits from the two countries are assembled on one platform to entertain thousands of music enthusiasts.

Ruff ‘N’ Smooth, the Ghanaian music duo, was on Independence Day involved in a nasty brawl over transportation arrangement that saw one of them jumping out of a moving taxi. The brawl was so nasty and life-threatening that armed soldiers had to intervene to calm tempers and save the situation. The incident took place at the Kokrobite beach on the outskirts of Accra where Hype Records had organised the Unity Beach Jam to mark the celebration of Ghana’s 55th Independence. According to the organisers, Ruff N’ Smooth, also known as Swagger Boys, had been billed to perform at the concert alongside Iwan, Akoo Nana and other artistes but the music duo, while the show was going on, changed its mind and cancelled its performance over a disagreement on the contract sum.
Ghanaian writer and director Kobi Rana has defended why he overlooked Ghanaian actors for Nollywood legendary actor Ramsey Nouah Jnr. when casting for his latest blockbuster ‘Hotel Babylon; Where Clothes Are Naked’.
The movie with obviously many supporting characters or probably no supporting characters had the Nollywood actor as the lead. His performance in the movie was a top notch and may confirm why he was picked ahead of the many Ghanaian Actors.
After the screening, the young African movie maker was subjected to series of questions by journalists. One question which nearly caused a rift between the movie maker and some journalists was the issue concerning the casting of the leading character in the movie.
From the young African Writer & Director “KOBI RANA (Cornelius Phanthomas)” comes the most anticipated movie ‘HOTEL BABYLON: where clothes are naked’. It stars Nollywood actor Ramsey Nouah Jnr. and Roselyn Ngissah, Eddie Watsons, Nana Ama McBrown, James Gardner, Kafui as well as upcoming stars. It premieres on Saturday March 17 at the National Theatre. There would be two showings; 6pm and 9pm. Ticket goes for GHC 30 and GHC 50 and available at Joy FM, Adom FM, Accra Mall (Foto Store and Silverbird), Busy Internet and Legon Drama Studio. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ink46v1jNy4
