But delivering his update, the President said “As per data available from the Ghana Health Service, it appears that, unfortunately, our nation is experiencing a third wave of COVID-19 infections”.

Below are highlights of President Akufo-Addo’s address on COVID-19.

According to him, all funerals must also be held in open spaces and there must be the observance of the one (1) metre social distancing rule by sympathisers.

“All events associated with funerals must be held in open air spaces; there must be observance of the one (1) metre social distancing rule by sympathisers; the wearing of masks is mandatory, and persons must respect the enhanced hygiene protocols; funerals should not go beyond the two (2) hour time duration; post-funeral receptions are banned; handshakes must be avoided; and one-week funeral celebrations are restricted solely to family members, and should not exceed a duration of two (2) hours.”

Ghana to receive over 18million COVID-19 vaccines in third quarter of the year
He also opined that government is procuring some 18,478,670 vaccines through the COVAX facility, African Medicine Supply Platform and other bodies to aid in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Government is also in the process of procuring seventeen million (17 million) single dose per person Johnson & Johnson vaccines, through the African Medicine Supply Platform, in this quarter,” he said.

Over 1.2M doses of COVID vaccines administered in Ghana so far
President Akufo-Addo further announced that One million, Two Hundred and Seventy One Thousand, Three Hundred and Ninety-Three (1,271,393) doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been administered so far.

Out of that number, 865, 422 persons have received a single jab, whereas 405, 971 people have received their full dose of two jabs.

$25million for local production of COVID-19 vaccines
According to the President, Ghana must develop its capacity to produce own vaccines domestically, and reduce the dependence on foreign supplies.

Thus, he noted that Ghana must be self-sufficient and prepare better to deal with any such occurrences in the future.

“… the Committee I established, under the leadership of the world-renowned Ghanaian scientist, Professor Kwabena Frimpong Boateng, to investigate Ghana’s potential as a vaccine manufacturing hub, to meet national and regional needs, has presented its preliminary report which, amongst others, recommends the establishment of a National Vaccine Institute to spearhead this development.

“Government has committed to inject seed funding of some twenty-five million United States dollars (US$25 million) this year into this whole enterprise.”

Video of Izu reading his suicide note before killing himself pops up. A video showing Izuchukwu Madubueze, reading a suicide note before shooting himself dead has been shared online. According to the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office in Florida, the United States, the Nigerian entrepreneur with full name, Izuchukwu Madubueze shot himself dead over an allegation of sexual assault. Before taking his life, Izu recorded himself reading his suicide note. The video has now been shared online.

Izu can be heard saying : “I feel like it’ll be awesome to say some last words before I leave,” Izu began in the video.

He added: “In the last couple of weeks, I have seen the tweets. I have heard from several people, I’ve also seen some people who I expected a lot more from subtweeting me and I wasn’t ever given a fair chance to clear my name or explain my side of the story or verify whether any of the allegations against me were true or not.

“To my family, first of all, I apologize for bringing disgrace to your name. I love you all unconditionally from the bottom of my heart.”

“To my mum, I pray you stay strong, ” he said with a shaky voice.

“To my dad, you always said God will never give me a load that’s too heavy to carry but last two years have been the heaviest moments of my life… actually last three years have been the heaviest moments of my life.

“To my little bro, Ekene, I love you man. I wish we hadn’t grown super distant.

“To my sister, I love you so much sis. You have great things in store for you. You’re gonna be a very very great person.”

He then addressed his accusers, saying: “To Ify and Duby I wronged and who I… who said I groped them, which hurts a lot.

“To girls who posted the list, thank you for posting the list.”

Izu was referring to the list posted on Twitter where a number of men were named as people accused of sexual assault, harassment, or rape. Izu’s name was listed and he was accused of harassment.

“I mean, like I told you Nani, I can’t shoot the messenger. but your attitude not to work towards clearing up accusations was piss-poor. You denied me the opportunity to clear my name and you refused to tell me what exactly I did that was harassment, even after I provided proof that I didn’t harass this person….”

A Twitter influencer named Nanichi Anese, had on June 29, 2020, accused the 23-year-old creative designer of harassment – not rape as widely claimed by friends who were angered by Izu’s demise.

Izu reached out to Nani to find out who he had harrassed but she had sworn to protect the ladies who opened up to her so she refused to release the lady’s identity.

Izu was said to have been bombarded by calls from his friends, who queried him about the allegation.

On July 17, Izu, an Anambra State indigene later tweeted through the Crowdfire app that Izu had killed himself.

He killed himself on July 16 but the tweet appeared on Twitter on July 17. Crowdfire app allows users to schedule their posts.

Pure Akan Set To Release Nyame Mma Album On 12th August. After taking to social media to announce that his sophomore album was going to be a gospel album, Pure Akan is here with the title of the project alongside a release date and a cover art ending the hiatus after his 2017 debut Onipa Akoma. Nyame Mma, which has been in the works for close to 3 years comes with a dark and grainy cover that presents Akan engulfed by 2 women and 11 children.

Known for the dense cultural references in his music, the rapper appears wrapped in kente and a staff, connoting his ever-growing interest in Ghanaian culture. He stands in as the Linquist and mouthpiece of the forefathers and to inform the younger generation of their African values and history. Even though the news comes with no information about the tracklist or features, a tweet by producer Twistedwavex, revealed the rapper in the studio with Ayisi, which many have suspected could be a sign of the singer appearing on the album.

The album is scheduled for August 12th and we are happy to know the message Akan has in store for us. Pre-order the album here; https://li.sten.to/5ylTM5p

Ajebo Hustlers on making Kpos Lifestyle, Vol. 1

It was just different points in our lives. And we started recording from last year. We’re having fun with the music. I mean, making “Pronto” with Omah Lay. Making “Bus Stop” was just an amazing time in our lives, when we had “Barawo” out, and it was really doing numbers… So we were just super-hyped at the moment when we were recording “Bus Stop.” So it was just like we’re just making beautiful music and just expressing ourselves. It wasn’t about the metrics or just what anybody out there… It was just about what we felt good, making another point in time.

Ajebo Hustlers on making “Barawo”

“Barawo” was done sometime 2019 then we put it out 2020. It’s just more like talking about the environment, because this is a day-to-day activity that happens in Nigeria every time, because we do face police brutality and jungle justice as well. So, it’s something that has been happening since the inception of time. So at that point in our lives, we just felt like shedding lights, educating the people more about jungle justice and police brutality.

Ajebo Hustlers on working with Omah Lay on “Pronto”

That was fun, that was fun. The day we recorded we did about three songs. Yeah, we were just having fun in the studio. I mean, just playing different instrumentals and just laying down ideas and then he said he heard these beats from Shamsi that he felt like playing for us and we should just try doing something on that. And then Knowledge just started like, the intro like, “I go dey put myself in order” and all that. And it just sounded really, and it sounded like something that already existed before, like now this is the record that we should incorporate this.

Wahala: Dr UN impregnates a 17-year-old SHS girl. A 17-year-old SHS student identified as Matilda has in an exclusive interview with Ghpage TV revealed how Kwame Fordjour aka Dr UN impregnated her and failed to take responsibility.

According to her, she had gone out to enjoy with her friends at a joint and that was where she met Dr UN who was by then-popular after giving out a fake award. He expressed his intention of starting a relationship with her and taking it further by getting married to her which she also agreed and they both started going out.

Matilda told Rashad of GhPage TV that they started meeting in hotels and restaurants to eat and have fun whenever he comes to Kumasi because he had told her he stayed in Accra and only comes to Kumasi when he has a business to take care off.

Fast forward, three months ago she noticed she had missed her period, took a pregnancy test and the result came in as positive. She called Dr UN to inform him of the situation but he told her he was busy and was working on his new song so he needed his peace of mind and later started avoiding her and her calls.

The 17-year-old went on to say Dr UN called her later and told her to come and see her so they can go and see his doctor for an abortion to be carried out but she turned that option down. A video recording shared with Ghpage sees Dr UN in a meeting with Matilda and her sister who was trying to solve the matter amicably.

When he was told about the pregnancy he denied the pregnancy saying Matilda is telling lies. Matilda in the interview stated that the only thing she needs from Dr UN is to accept responsibility for the pregnancy because she doesn’t want to give birth for her child to be tagged a bastard.

Kumerican artistes are not united – D Black. D Black is sounding an alarm about a wrong path Kumerican artistes are. taking. According to Ghanaian music and showbiz mogul, he has noted that the current crop of new artistes from Kumasi are doing great musically, but there is no unity among them and that is alarming.

“The Kumerican guys are doing great,” he observed, “but I think they are a little bit divided,” he said.

The rapper during and an interview with Tony Best on Akoma FM’s Entertainment360 on Saturday, July 17, explained that for acts to survive in any creative industry, they need support from their colleagues as well.

Identifying the disunity among the Kumerican acts, he said “I see Yaw Tog somewhere, Kofi Jamar on the other side, Asakaa boys doing their own thing”. D-Black who is currently promoting his ‘Loyalty’ album, emphasized that they need to unite.

“I feel they need to come together and pursue a common agenda. Music is such that, you will not be on top forever. So, as a brother’s shine goes down, he gets featured on a big song on a particular moment to lift him,” he said.

Yaw Tog, a teenage rapper from Kumerica [Kumasi], shot into the limelight in2020. He wasn’t known until U.K. Twitter blew him up in late 2020 after releasing his breakthrough single, “Sore”, featuring O`kenneth, City Boy, Reggie, and Jay Bahd. Yaw Tog, O`kenneth, City Boy, Reggie and Jay Bahd were collectively known as Asakaa Boys.

However, he later broke up with the Asakaa Boys after refusing to sign a label deal with them. According to observations, “all he [Yaw] wanted was to go solo after his boys bolstered his rise to prominence”.

The teenage rapper sparked beef rumors with the Asakaa Boys when he deleted their verses on the remix of “Sore” featuring U.K-born Ghanaian rapper Stormzy and Tema-based rapper Kwesi Arthur.

“I didn’t sign their [Asakaa Boys] record label deal and it came out from them since I didn’t sign their deal. They can’t work with me again and things started from [deletion] of my verses and stuff they did together,” Yaw Tog said in a now-deleted tweet.

Since then, things never look good between them and they have been throwing subliminal shots at each, either in their songs, social media, or during interviews.

Other Kumerican acts like Kweku Flick, Kofi Jamar, YPee, Osikani Abrantie, Kweku Darlington, among others, have all been their been going about their music career individually. Kumerican artistes are not united – D Black.

But according to Miss Nelson, people shouldn’t fall for the slim tea and waist trainer scams as she discloses the only means women can have that banging body.

She disclosed this in a Twitter post on Sunday morning. “Before we go to church, lemme say this…baby gyal, no slimming tea/waist trainer is gonna give you no TAPOLI / snatched body, stop letting these companies/influencers fool you,” she tweeted.

In the tweet that has sparked a conversation about how to acquire slim waist bodies, the Ghanaian actress noted that it is only a surgical doctor or a girl’s mother who can give her that flat tummy genetic inheritance.

According to the mother of one, if your banging body is not from a doctor or your mother, the only place you can get it is from the gym. “Two people, a doctor or your mum and one place, the gym can give you that body,” she tweeted.

It’s unclear what influenced Yvonne Nelson to come out with this message. However, we understand her because social media off-late is always flooded with some celebrities or influencers like her bestie, Belinda Dzata, who are advertising slim teas or waist trainers. No slim tea or waist trainer can give you ‘tapoli’ shape – Yvonne Nelson.
