#FixTheCountry: Ghanaians would tag you with a political party – Akwaboah on celebrity silence

Published

on

According to Akwaboah, he has no idea about the #FixTheCountry demonstration happening today. In his defence, he would prefer to distance himself from such activism for fear of being tagged with a political party.

Akwaboah disclosed his silence on the #FixTheCountry agenda to Mz Gee during an interview on the NewDay show. He revealed that most celebrities have been silent on championing this agenda because they don’t want to be associated with any political party.

“The thing is, it is not like we don’t want to talk about it. But Ghanaians, some of us, have a way of politicizing everything that comes. So you might want to talk about it, but then the moment you start talking about it, they think you are NPP or NDC. That is why sometimes we would want to rather stay back and not say anything about it. But then definitely, it would have been something good to talk about, but if you are not careful, you would be tagged.”

Upon further probing, Akwaboah shared his morning routine, which involved his primary passion, music. He said, “Me waking up in the morning thinking of what to do. Songs that I have, incomplete songs that I want to do and then going to the studio to go and finish it up. That’s all I think about.”

Akwaboah is set to release his newest album called the Lighthouse Album. Lighthouse because highlife is the light of the Ghanaian music genre.

“We must understand that regardless of the genres we are doing in Ghana, highlife is our light. When you step out of Ghana to other countries, and they ask you, what kind of songs do Ghanaians do, the only thing that would come into your mind is highlife.”

Yvonne Nelson has revealed that she has had enough from her people, adding that she will no longer tolerate any unprofessional behaviour when it comes to working with a crew.

Purification or not, the law would work again – Arnold to Shatta Wale

Published

on

Entertainment journalist and nemesis of Shatta Wale, Arnold Asamoah-Baidoo, has sounded a word of caution to the Dancehall artiste. According to him, bathing in the sea would not make Shatta Wale immune to the law.

Arnold Asamoah shared his opinion on the supposed ‘spiritual bath’ that Shatta WaleMedikal and the others took after being released from jail. Although Bulldog, acting as Shatta Wale’s manager, disputed the spirituality part of the beach bath, Arnold had this to say;

“Well, I think everyone has their believes and convictions, especially when it comes to spiritual matters. So what works for you is what you abide by. I don’t have a problem with them going through that exercise because I am sure they have a certain belief that when they do those things, any bad luck from going to prison and all will be washed away. That’s their belief. They have a strong conviction in that. And so I can’t begrudge them for going through that process.”

Conferring to Arnold, their actions should not be tagged with a sinister motive considering our roots as Africans.

“I don’t know why people would think that that is idol worshipping. We grew up with tradition and culture. Plus, spirituality. So I don’t see why anybody should have an issue with what they did.”

Having said that, Arnold maintains that the spiritual bath would not be a protection from the law if Shatta goes up against it.

“However, I think it’s also critical to mention that going through that process doesn’t mean that if you breach the law, you won’t be held responsible. So I have no problem with them going through that process once it gives them relief.”

I live within my means, chill with the expectations – KiDi pleads

Published

on

Afro-pop artiste, Dennis Dwamena, known in showbiz as KiDi, has pleaded with his fans to lessen their expectations of his celebrity status.

KiDi wrote on his Twitter page to draw the line between his celebrity status and regular lifestyle. He added that he has not amassed enough wealth yet, and until then, people should expect a simple lifestyle.

He said, “One day I’ll be rich. But right now, I’m not. So don’t be expecting some kind of rich and flashy lifestyle from me because I be star, I beg. I live within my means. Dead the expectations.”

It seems the ‘touch It’ hitmaker may also be sending a word of caution to all social media users to stay away from unnecessary pressure from celebrities.
And for all to take note that “not all that glitters is gold”. And as such, the youth should remain vigilant and focused at all times.

Kidi is an afro-pop singer and songwriter who has been making countless hit songs in the entertainment industry. His newest album, ‘The Golden Boy’ has made headlines with ‘touch it’ as one of his singles to debut Billboard charts globally.

We hope to see more exciting features and songs that will put Ghanaian music on the global map.
