Nigerian Actor Emeka Ike storms out of interview after questions on failed marriage

Controversial Nollywood actor and acting
President of the Actors Guild of Nigerian, AGN,
Emeka Ike, on Friday stormed out of an
interview when asked about his marriage.
The interview on Television Continental, TVC,
took an unexpected turn after the interviewer
probed further into the crisis trailing the actor’s
marriage.
On the show, Emeka was asked about the
current status of his marriage with wife,
Suzanne, with whom he has allegedly had a
physical altercation and bitter divorce
proceedings.
The interviewer said, ”At your home front
currently, is everything fine?”
The actor responded, “I love my wife and she is
my wife. Everything is fine, I just dropped off my
mother-in-law before coming here for this
interview.”
However, upon further probing by the
presenter who asked if his wife was back with
him, the Nollywood ‘bad boy’ in an amplified
pitch, said “It is not your business.

Reggie Rockstone denies confusion in VVIP's camp

Image
Grandfather of hip life and the latest addition to
VIP, Reggie Rockstone has debunked allegations
that there is confusion in the camp of VVIP in
terms of their stage act.
Earlier this week, Flex newspaper reported that
there is confusion in the camp of VVIP in their
stage act.
According to the story, when the group is on
stage, Reggie Rockstone does not contribute in
performing songs recorded by Zeal and
Prodigal and when Rockstone is performing, the
other two do not also contribute to performing
Reggie’s songs. This according to the writer
suggests confusion in the camp.
Speaking on AM Pluzz, Reggie Rockstone in a
telephone conversation denied the allegation,
stating that the story was written just to sell the
paper.
He went on to describe the story as needless and
sensational. According to the hiplife icon,
whatever they do on stage is what they planned
to do.
Reggie Rockstone affirmed that the group is still
intact and strong. There is no confusion
whatsoever in the camp of VVIP.

Charterhouse charged to produce the VGMAs for TV

One of Ghana’s highlife stars says organisers of
the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) do
not produce the event to meet international
television standards.
Kwabena Kwabena reiterated his criticism of the
Charterhouse event which he says is not well-
organised one.
He has boycotted the Awards for the past three
years and has vowed not to be part of the
scheme until proper structures are put in place.
Speaking to Doreen Andoh on Joy FM's
Cosmopolitan Mix, Tuesday, he said: “I believe
that as a musician, the only time to show to your
audience that you are truly a musician is when
these events come up.”
The Bue Kwan singer had argued on a program
on Viasat 1 that the poor and disorganised nature
of the awards was what informed his decision to
boycott it.
Comparing the production for television, he said
apart from the knowing which artistes picked
what award at the Grammys, viewers get to enjoy
the presentation.
“Everything is well coordinated, well rehearsed
such that it projects the…

Kwabena Kwabena pays tributes to music producers

It is rare that we get to hear people pay tribute to
the living as it has become associated with the
dead.
Well, multiple award-winning musician, Kwabena
Kwabena, broke the rules again by paying
glowing gratitude to the several producers he has
worked with so far in his music career.
Speaking to Doreen Andoh on Joy FM’s
Cosmopolitan Mix, Tuesday, June 14, he said he
was grateful for their influence and the impact
they have had in his career.
The 'Adult Music' singer disclosed that after
writing the lyrics to his songs he passes it on to
the “abled producers he has worked with over
the years” to do the rest.
He said music producer Martin Kofi Mawutor aka
Martin With the Keys whom he works with since
the beginning of his career especially plays an
important role on what his songs finally become.
“He understands where I am coming from
musically and has played a 70 percent role of
what Kwabena Kwabena has become,” he
disclosed.
He said he has intermittently worked with several

Reports have emerged that Popular music
producer, Babatunde Okungbowa, popularly
known as OJB Jezreel , is dead, three years after
a successful kidney transplant surgery in India.
He was said to have died Tuesday, June 14, in a
Lagos hospital, just one month to his 50th
birthday.
A family source claimed that his kidney
transplant failed completely since last week.

related disease, and consequently was flown to
India for a transplant in 2013. On October 21, the
singer successfully underwent the surgery at the
Indian hospital.
After the successful surgery, OJB Jezreel,
showered praises on his first wife, Mama J, for
being there for him and donating one of her
kidneys to save his life.
While speaking after his arrival to the country
from India, OJB revealed that despite
discouragement from family and friends, his wife
still made the crucial donation to save him, even
at the risk of her life.

Mugabe care less about fake funny quotes attributed to him!

Image
President Robert Mugabe does not care about
funny quotes falsely attributed him, the
Zimbabwean High Commissioner to Ghana has
revealed.
Pavelyn Tenclai Musaka says his boss is thinking
about important things and not what “little boys
and girls” decide to do with his name.
“When I see and hear those quotes, I say to myself
let’s not go to those levels. And I urge Ghanaian
and African leaders to start respecting their own
heads of states,” said Mrs Musaka.
Social media is awash with fake quotes attributed
to the outspoken Zimbabwean leader.
Posts such as ’The only warning the African takes
seriously is low battery’ – Mugabe (1 minute ago);
‘Circle de33 even if three people urinate at the
same time, the place will be flooded’ (Robert
Mugabe), are common on social media sites like
WhatsApp, Facebook and Twitter.
It is not clear when and how the trend started,
however, the 94-year-old leader of Zimbabwe is
known for his glib and strong anti-Western, anti-
homosexuality comments.

No rush to perform abroad; I want to conquer Ghana first - MzVee

Image
Ghanaian Afro-pop, Dancehall and R&B artiste,
Vera Hamenoo Kpeda popularly referred to MzVee
has responded to circulating criticisms that she
has never performed outside the country, an
argument many people have advanced to question
her nomination for the BET International Best
African Act.
MzVee who made an appearance on the widely
watched satirical talk show, Tonight with Nii
Kpakpo Thomspon on Viasat1 last Friday sounded
a little rattled with the pressure being mounted on
her by Ghanaians and at a point insisted that she
has all the emails and documents to prove to her
critics that she has fans all over the world.
MzVee was nominated in the BET International Best
African Act alongside other heavy weights across
the continent last month but has since come under
intense scrutiny from a section of Ghanaians who
strongly believe that she didn’t deserve a place in
the nominations.
Responding to a question by host Nii Kpakpo
Thompson as to how she handles criticisms about
