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.

No slim tea or waist trainer can give you ‘tapoli’ shape – Yvonne Nelson. Yvonne Nelson wants you to know that there’s no slim tea or waist trainer in the world that can give you a slim waist shape. The sale of slim teas and waist trainers has been on the rise in recent days as women of today chase body goals for the gram, cute dresses or to boost their self-esteem. 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.

Spending time with Kwadee was my best birthday moment – Sarkodie. Ghanaian hip-hop/hiplife musician Michael Owusu Addo, also known as Sarkodie, has said his best birthday gift this year is spending time with hiplife legends, Okomfour Kwadee and Joe Frazier. Today (Saturday, July 10, 2021) marks the 36th birthday of the two-time BET Award winner and as a superstar, thousands of birthday messages are flooding social media for him.

Sarkodie, who is currently in Kumasi to promote his upcoming “No Pressure” album, hanged out with Okomfour Kwadee and Joe Frazier last night.

For Sarkodie, the moment he shared with the Kumasi-based hiplife legends was enough to mark his birthday.

“My best birthday gift this year “Having my legends Okomfo) kwaadee x joe Frazier” spend it with me in Kumasi,” he captioned photos he took with them.

He shared another photo taken with the legends and captioned: “Prayed for days like this.”

His fans praised him.

“The kids coming up don’t learn at all. They always attack & attempt to battle the legends. King Sark on the other hand is always praising the legends. Praises Reggie, praises Kwadee, Lord Kenya, Obrafour, etc etc. If these legends bless u, u will always be sarkcessful,” a tweep commented on Sarkodie’s post.

Another tweep said: “Humility!!! I noticed how humble u were around legendary kwade.”

“Happy blessed birthday Ghana G.O.A.T wishing you all the best things of life. @MI_Abaga is the Greatest African Rapper Alive,” said a tweet, another added: “MOST HUMBLE KING Prince….RT.HON.HIS EXCELLENCE KING SARK DA G.O.A.T….GO HIGHER WID WAT U HV STARTED.”

Meanwhile, Sarkodie’s wife, Tracy Sarkcess, has shared a rare family footage to mark his birthday.

Tracy pieced together some rare family video and shared it on her social media pages to wish him a happy birthday.

She described being with Sarkodie as a ‘beautiful experience’, adding that they should continue to make great memories together.

Angry Fan Warns Stonebwoy To Stop Buying Fake YouTube Views. Bhim Nation and Dancehall artiste Stonebwoy has received a fair warning from a die-hard fan about buying views for his music videos on social media.

Stonebwoy’s video with Vic Mensa in just 1 week after it was posted on Youtube gathered a million views to the surprise of many. According to some unconfirmed sources, Stonebwoy bought views from a group in India.

Well, he has released the remix for his viral song Putuu and as it stands now, the video has gathered 75k plus in just six days to the surprise of many again. A fan on social media has warned him that they are monitoring him very well and he shouldn’t try or dare to buy views for his videos.

He posted: “We have receipts…. Try buying views again and it will be over for you in Ghana”

The American Dream Or A Thug Life, Which Is Yaw Tog Aspiring For. “Yaw Tog appears as a calm, rapt, and disciplined teenager who wants to make it to the top with music. Nonetheless, he is losing it. His recent bizarre public utterances and antics are bogging.” Grace found Yaw Tog, a teenage rapper from Kumerica [Kumasi], in 2020.

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. He later broke up with them after refusing to sign a label deal with them. All he wanted was to go solo after his boys bolstered his rise to prominence.

He 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.

He recognizes their support, though.

“I think I need to clear this. [I’m] not beefing anyone in this music thing, yeah. I did a song with the Asakaa Boys and it was for love thing and support. And fine, I can’t ignore the Asakaa Boys in my storytelling [because]. They [are] part of my success story. I appreciate them. They [are] part of my success story,” he tweeted and deleted later after heavy backlash.

His recent bizarre public utterances and antics are bogging. Plain arrogance could be spotted in his tweets (which he has deleted a chunk of them) when “Sore” went viral on social media. Stormzy’s link-up even exacerbated his antics.

When he received the “Hip-hop/Hiplife Song of the Year” award at the just ended Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, he didn’t focus on crediting those who helped him rise to prominence. Instead, in his acceptance speech, he used the big platform to send a message to his haters.

This week, he appeared on TV3, where he claimed that ‘he made Stormzy more popular in Ghana’ and admitted that the U.K. rapper made him ‘more popular,’ too. For some reason, he is right about the growth of Stormzy’s popularity in Ghana in recent times. Stormzy is well known among young music listeners in Ghana (unless you are into only local content), even before Yaw Tog came into the scene. There have been several occasions where he represented Ghana on big stages. His 2017 “Gang Signs & Prayer” album made so much impact in Ghana. His popularity grew even bigger when Sarkodie praised him during an interview on the “After Sessions” show in 2016 and the news of their upcoming collaboration in 2019. The fact is that over 500,000 of the first million views from “Sore” remix came from Stormzy’s fans who are based in Accra, London, Birmingham, New York, Paris, and Milan, according to YouTube’s Charts & Insights analytics. That said, Yaw Tog’s influence and contribution to Stormy’s recent fame in Ghana can’t be ruled out entirely from the picture.

But, what happened to ‘no comment’ during his interview? This simple response could have saved him from the embarrassment he is enduring at the moment. Notwithstanding, we can’t, if truth be told, censure him. Because, he is young and foolish, and famous. Fame is eating into his head. Moreover, he is trying so hard to live the drill and hip-hop lifestyle (thug/gang life). Any young artiste who performs hip-hop/drill goes through this phase in their career but only a few come out of it.

From my observations, he wants to establish that he is a thug. The gang signs he throws in his music videos, lyrics, and public utterances are evident enough. He should go ahead, but he should stop creating unnecessary enemies for himself. As someone who is still schooling, his security is at stake if he commits himself to thug life.

Twene Jonas sends strong warning to IGP over Ejura shooting

My statement about Stormzy was misconstrued – Yaw Tog. Kumerican rapper Yaw Tog seems to have had a sober reflection after his statement about Stormzy. The “Hip-hop/Hiplife Song of the Year” winner at the just ended Vodafone Ghana Music Awards ruffled feathers on Thursday (July 8) when he stated on TV3 that he made the U.K-born Ghanaian rapper more popular in Ghana. He also acknowledged that Stormzy made him more popular as well.

“I made him more popular here too because people didn’t know Stormzy in Ghana here,” he told MzGee on TV3.

His statement caused fury on social media (especially Twitter), where several music enthusiasts and industry people called him out and labeled his statement as ‘disrespectful.’

Radio presenter Sammy Forson said Yaw Tog’s statement is ‘the kind that unfortunately encourages selfish behavior in the industry,’ adding that he should focus on his music. “Yaw Tog’s comments about making Stomzy popular in GH are the kind that unfortunately encourages selfish behavior in the industry… If u know what it takes to be a mainstream artist in the UK and playlisted into other parts of Europe, u won’t lose talk… Smh… Focus on your music,” Sammy Forson tweeted.

Even though Joey B, KOJO-Cue, and other musicians defended him, the majority of Twitter users have lambasted Yaw Tog. Reacting to the backlash, Yaw Tog explained in a tweet and Instagram post that his statement was misconstrued but life must go on.

“It’s quite unfortunate a very harmless comment I made during a recent interview has been misconstrued by a few for whatever reason but regardless, we move. It’s Big Mike on the Remix,” he wrote.

His response to the backlash attracted positive comments from some celebrities.

“Bro this where we come from…move on super,” Fameye commented on his post.

Stonebwoy’s former manager Blakk Cedi commented: “It’s all in your favour young bull. You are blessed and that’s how it goes. Journey on champ.”

Reggie Rockstone encouraged him: “Yaw why dem say what??? Yo fada is here tell me.”

Footballers are playing with the head of John the Baptist. Prophet Ajagurajah has made a shocking revelation about the invention of football which he traces to the bible. According to, Bishop Abed Kwabena Boakye Asiamah, the founder of the Ajagurajah Movement, a spiritual organization rooted in the teachings of the old testament, football originated from how John The Baptist was killed in the Bible.

In a video seen by pulse.com.gh on social media, Ajagurajah explained that John The Baptist was beheaded by Herod Antipas with head kicked around in a manner that shows how football is played now.

“When John The Baptist was beheaded, the daughter of Herod went to give it to her mother and she kicked it away and someone too played it with the leg and then they formed football, a lot of people don’t know this,” he said in Twi.

In the video below which is going viral, he explained that “so this football that they play now, it is because of Jon The Baptist’s head. That is why there is so much spirit in football now … yes so that is John The Baptist’s head that they have been playing like that”.

twitter.com
This would be the first time Ajagurajah has come out with a shocking revelation. Last year in September, he made headlines after he said Jesus Christ married Mary Magdalene and had five children with her in France.

A few months ago, he also said a top Ghanaian rapper is married to a demigod and that the rapper’s career is only booming simply because of the woman he is married to.

Ajagurah however refused to mention the name of the said rapper but emphasized that “you will never hear of his wife” He also disclosed that the day the said rapper will divorce his wife, his career will collapse.

“The day he will leave his wife, he will go back to square one. If he thinks I am lying, he should try. It is the girl’s spirit that has seen reach where is now,” he said.

According to Bishop Kwabena Boakye Asiamah, even on any day, the rapper gets involved in an issue or serious disagreement with the wife at home, something bad happens to him that sees him having trouble on social media for people to insult him.

Forever in our heart, rest well Castro. Remembering Castro Under Fire, the hiplife gem who paved the way for T’aadi acts. “Castro ‘Under Fire’ won’t be remembered for only his hit songs and features, he will be remembered for giving the new crop of Takoradi artistes the exposure they are enjoying today and leaving an indelible mark on the showbiz industry.”

On July 6, 2014, I was in classroom teaching when a colleague teacher barged into my class and muttered in my ears: ‘they say Castro is missing.’ I quit working and visited Ameyawdebrah.com (it used to be my first news source for celebrity news) to confirm the report of his disappearance. And to my astonishment, it was true.

I was not absolutely shocked by the news because I assumed he would be eventually found (after all, it is not the first time someone went missing and found later). I thought a miracle would happen, but it has been seven heart-breaking years of expecting his return.

Now, he is officially late per the 1992 Constitution of Ghana. According to Section 3 of the Evidence Acts of Ghana, 1975, a person can only be declared legally dead after seven years by a court, where the person in question has not been seen or heard from in seven years despite diligent and persistent efforts to find him. It means that Castro (and one Janet Bandu who went missing with him) are officially dead.

Like any rising musician, Castro went through the quotidian hurdles in the late 90s and early 2000s before rising to prominence. His breakthrough came in 2003 when he released “Sradinam” (the title is a famous Akan phrase to wit, ‘fatty meat’). It was the party and funeral jam at the time. He did not rest after breaking through the mainstream market. His powerful, signature falsetto, songwriting skills, and hard work earned him a call from 4×4 (the second hottest group in the early 2000s after VIP) who put him on one of their biggest career songs, “Sikletele.”

He discovered his ‘Midas touch’ after the 4×4 feature. He went on to become one of the few Ghanaian stars who resurrected careers and ushered new stars into the music industry. His presence on Sarkodie’s biggest career song “Adonai,” D-Black’s hit song “Personal Person,” Mzbel’s breakthrough song “16 years,” 2Toff America’s career-saving banger “Ye Na Bra,” Akoo Nana’s biggest career song “Mi Yadaw,” and Tiffany’s breakthrough song “Agyekoom” are just a few cases. He launched Asamoah Gyan’s music career with their collaborations, “African Girl” and “Odo Pa”. Everything he touched from 2003 till his disappearance was gold.

Castro received recognition for his contributions to the music industry. He has four Vodafone Ghana Music Awards to his credit. In 2006, he won the “Hiplife Song of the Year” with his hit “Toffee” and “Hiplife Album of the Year” with his maiden album, “Toffee.” In 2011 he won the “Best Hiplife Song of the Year” with his song “African Girls” which features Asamoah Gyan. And in 2014, his second collaboration with Asamoah Gyan, “Odo Pa,” won the “Highlife Song of the Year.”

He paved the way for the new crop of artistes from Takoradi. Kofi Kinaata had zero hits when Castro put him on “Odo Pa” – the song that gave Kinaata a huge exposure. Castro’s ‘honeyed’ Fante accent, coupled with the combination of flawless rap and singing drew many music lovers’ attention to music from the Western Region. Today, top Takoradi-natives like Kofi Kinaata, Nero X, KODA, Pappy Kojo, Ayesem, Fameye, Keche, and Afezi Perry can brag and boast of their talents and successes, thanks to Castro Under Fire – who did most of the dirty job.

Throughout his career, he linked up with some top African stars to work and crossover. Nigerian afrobeats stars Davido and D’Banj, and South African rapper AKA were among the stars he targeted and was about to explode on the world market when he met his fate.

Castro Under Fire (De Destroyer) was a selfless hiplife gem who refused to thrive on media gimmicks, publicity stunts, fights, insults, and scandals. He won’t be remembered for only his hit songs and features, he will be remembered for giving the new crop of Takoradi artistes the exposure they are enjoying today and leaving an indelible mark on the showbiz industry. His disappearance is a big blow to the industry, however, we can only wonder.

All you need to know about the Presidential spouses allowance. Some Ghanaians, especially on social media, have expressed their anger at the news that spouses of the President and the Vice President will receive increased allowances. For many, these allowances will be put further strain on the overburdened taxpayer. They argue that the state should officially not pay the spouses of politicians.

But in a rebuttal to the reports, the Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has stated that reports are a little misleading.

He said President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo did not approve the paying of the allowances, however, it was done by an emoluments committee with approval by Parliament. The Ofoase-Ayirebi said this phenomenon is not new and it has been there since the tenure of President John Agyekum Kuffour.

Mr. Oppong Nkrumah explained that an arrangement that was introduced by former President John Agyekum Kufuor during the start of his Presidency in 2000 had seen spouses of Presidents and Vice Presidents, since then, enjoy allowances, though there was no formal documentation to support that.

“President Kufuor, in his wisdom, instituted this because of the bad situations of some spouses of some former Heads of States then. Presidents Mills and Mahama even increased the rates of these benefits during their time.

“The truth of the matter is that all surviving spouses of Heads of State, current and former, have always received salaries. Lordina Mahama, Naadu Mills, Matilda Amissah-Arthur, Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings, Faustina Acheampong, Fulera Liman, etc have all been receiving salaries since President Kufuor’s time.

“What has happened now is that the arrangement has been made formal but that was done legally based on the recommendation by the Emoluments Committee,” the Information Minister emphasized.

He said there had been an increment in allowances for the spouses of the President and the Vice-President, Mr Oppong Nkrumah emphasized that that was an approval given by the Seventh Parliament.

“The President does approve salaries and benefits for the Executive. Under Article 71, the First Lady and Second Lady are not office-holders so no one can determine their benefits under that article.

“However, a committee only recommended that an arrangement for the spouses be made formal and that received approval from Parliament,” he indicated.

Twene Jonas sends strong warning to IGP over Ejura shooting. Twene Jonas has poured out his anger on Ghana Police and Nana Addo over the recent killings in Ejura. “Are you people sick in the bush over there?” Jonas who lives in the U.S quizzed before adding that “if you don’t arrest those officers who shot the people, I will come and encourage the youth to burn police stations”.

The social media commentator in his latest rant joins the many Ghanaian celebrities and citizens who have been outraged about the military shooting protestors in Ejura who were demonstrating over Kaaka’s death.

About four youth demonstrating at Ejura on Tuesday, June 29, 2021, over the murder of Mr Ibrahim Muhammed, aka Kaaka, were shot by joint police and military security team deployed to the area. Two of them died and have been buried.

Reacting to the news, Jonas is advising Ghana Police to purchase and use tasers when dealing with civilians to stop the unnecessary killing. “Recently it happened Techiman, police shot killed people … you people are crazy,” he said.

“IGP where are you, go and look for taser, police officers are to have guns and tasers, it like yellow, you see it on American police officers. When someone misbehaves, then you fire them with the taser, it will shock them to become weak,” Jonas advised.

In the video below, he directed some shots at the President saying that ” Akufo Addo, the inquisitiveness you displayed when George Floyd was shot,” use the same energy to comment on these issues.
