Berla Mundi and I are just good friends – E.L

Image
It’s safe to say that Media Personality Berla Mundi is forever stuck in the friend zone of Ghanaian artiste E.L. The ‘Go to Church’ rapper has repeatedly stated to anyone who has ears to listen that he is not dating the Live FM Presenter, and that she is a friend. In a new interview with Graphic Showbiz, the rapper born Elom Adablah refers to Mundi as “just good friends.” The reigning VGMA Artiste of the Year claims he’s been “very single” for the past two years and searching hard to find the right lady to marry, looks like Mundi is however not an option. “Berla is beautiful and people think we are dating, but we are just good friends.” He told the publication when asked about the kind of relationship they have. It seems they both have what they look out for in a prospective partner: Mundi wants her man to be tall, dark and good-looking, and E.L, a beautiful and smallish lady. “I normally prefer a petite girl I can throw in the skies and also turn her around anytime I want. When I am dating, I go all out and…

'Mahama Paper' Song Was Not A Praise To Mahama - Shatta Wale [ READ WHY HE SANG IT]

Image
'Chop Kiss' hitmaker Shatta Wale has cleared the air on his controversial song, “Mahama Paper”, which most people believe is a campaign song for the ruling New Democratic Congress (NDC). Shatta Wale told BBC’s Akwasi Sarpong, the controversial Dancehall act revealed that his “Mahama Paper” song was not released as a praise to the President of Ghana, John  Mahama.
The 'WMT' hitmaker, stressed the rational behind the song was that he was watching television when President Mahama’s missing speech saga occurred. John Mahama, in his position as the former chairman of the ECOWAS, shocked the gathering of West African government heads when he announced that some pages were missing from his speech.
“Where is my speech…I am missing certain pages in my speech…,”  he said.
Shatta Wale noted he didn’t do the song out of any political reason though he was inspired by  Mahama’s missing speech saga.
“I didn’t do that song for a political purpose, I wrote it out of love. I didn’t do it because of my President…

We All 'Killed' Our Concerts, Stop Comparing My To That Of Sarkodie - Shatta Wale Plead

Image
Confident self acclaimed Dancehall king Shatta Wale is pleading with critics to stop comparing his Indigo 02  concert to that of BET Award winner Sarkodie. The 'Kakai' hitmaker on Saturday evening shared a post on Facebook stating the BET Award winner “killed” his show and so did he “make a statement”. According to Shatta Wale, moments like these were great times for Ghanaians to celebrate and to push “our music to the next level rather than doing comparison”. This comes as a result of attempts by entertainment critics to find out who among the two (Sarkodie and Shatta Wale) had a larger audience during their concerts at the same venue. Organizer of both shows, Akwaaba Music explained that in as much as Shatta Wale had a larger audience, it was understandable since both shows were held at different seasons winter and summer.
Shatta Wale over the weekend put together a splendid show as he gave London a performance worth their money.



Shatta Wale’s Indigo O2 Concert better than Sarkodie – Organisers

Sarkodie had a successful concert somewhere in March this year with Shatta Wale also performing at the same venue on Friday, August 26. Pundits have started comparing how mega the two shows were taking a lot of factors into consideration. Dennis Tawiah, CEO of Akwaaba UK, organisers of both concerts has given an account of the two shows. He said attendance for Shatta Wale’s concert was “almost full to capacity.” Speaking on Peace FM, the event organiser disclosed that both events had event goers showing up to have fun. When asked if attendance for Sarkodie’s concert was up to Shatta Wale’s, which happened on Friday, he said no.
“Not full to capacity but attendance was perfect,” he said. Mr Tawiah who could not give figures quickly gave reasons why attendance for both shows varied. “March is winter time and August is summer time so sometimes you have to measure both but I would say the shows were wonderful adverts for Ghana,” he said. He further asked Ghanaians not to compare the two shows but rejoice in order…

Who writes MzVee's Patois ? Samini Asks Richie

Image
Dancehall act,Emmanuel Andrews known by his stage name Samini was on Accra based Pluzz FM and he has waded into the dancehall shots that happened between Kaakie and his fellow dancehall act, MzVee.  According to Samini, he doesn’t see anything wrong about both acts hitting hard at each other. He added that in dancehall throwing of shots is allowed but questioned the personality behind MzVee's patois.
“In dancehall, beef is allowed; throwing shots at each other is allowed, even in hiphop, artiste diss each other. In all this, it makes the industry more interesting; if there is an upcoming gig, it makes fans wanna come out in their numbers to support their respective acts.”
Samini talking Kaakie- MzVee beef Samini again added that the hype surrounding MzVee and Kaakie has gone down and that they should drop some vibes.
“I think they’ve slowed down too much, both MzVee and Kaakie should ginger the industry a little bit. MzVee should drop some few songs, but her patois tho, hey, Richie, who writes the patoi…

Movie celebrities are among the few who always makes headlines with their activities and one person in the Ghana Movie Industry who stirs controversies every now and then is the 2006 Miss Ghana contestant  Yvonne Nelson the brain behind #Dumsormuststop campaign.
If she is a woman after her  words, then she has had enough of Ghanaians always expressing ideas about her. She has told Hitz FM’s MzGee that it is time Ghanaians turn their attention to other public figures in the country because everything cannot be about her always. She said people track her a lot trying to figure out everything she is doing.
"People are still concerned about who I’m hanging out with, what I’m wearing, where I’m sleeping, what I’m posting on Instagram, I don’t understand. Charley, we are many so can they also talk about other people? I’m just tired” 
She admitted that Ghanaians talking about her helped boost her career. “I enjoyed it. I think it's helped me whether negative or positive because its all part of the job…
