When Abena Owusua Adu made the decision to marry popular highlife musician, Kwabena Kwabena in 2011, many voices in showbiz circles were of the opinion that it was a bad decision.
Two years and a baby later, Abena says confidently “Marrying Kwabena Kwabena has been very good; I can confidently say that I have never regretted marrying him.
“We do fight sometimes like most married couples do but we settle our differences without letting any third party hear of it. He is a sweet person and the best thing that ever happened to me ”Abena happily said.
According to her, not every woman would have taken the decision she took to marry Kwabena Kwabena considering the many negative things that were said about him mainly over his alleged skirt chasing behavior but she chose Kwabena Kwabena not for anything but love.
In response to how she had dealt with her husband’s many lady admirers, a smiling Abena replied: “He is married to me and no other lady. I know with the kind of songs he does every lady would love to have him as a partner but he is mine.
Whenever he is performing and ladies scream out his name, all I say to myself is, how lucky I am to have Kwabena Kwabena as a husband. The ladies will scream alright but at the end of the day, I am the one who will take him home ”
Abena revealed that there have been times when Kwabena Kwabena has been down due to negative stories about him in the media but she encourages him not to let any of those bother him.
“If Kwabena Kwabena is down and I am also down who will encourage the other, I have to be there for him all the time and make sure everything is alright with him. But I can say that he is a really good man every lady would love to have as a husband. He is always home to take care of the kids when he is not performing, ”Abena said.
She said anyone who truly wants to know the real Kwabena Kwabena should get close to him and will know he is a really good man.
Kwabena Kwabena who wouldn’t want to talk much about his marriage said "my wife is simply the best woman in the world. I have said it every where I go that I have made the right decision choosing Abena as my wife, she is simply sweet ”

American R&B star Chris Brown, who recently performed at the rLG Hope City concert in Ghana, says the famous Ghanaian dance moves 'Azonto' is a Nigeria 'thing'.
Chris Brown, while promoting his new album on BET's 106 & Park, told the hosts about 'Azonto', but gave credits to Nigeria, adding that he learned it from Nigerian musician Wizkid.

Chris Brown was making a point on how big an influence Michael Jackson had on him and his career, but in answering it, 'Azonto' came up. He said "... there's a dance in Africa ... it's funny but it's kinda like the Michael Jackson. You wait, you'll see it in the video ... just wait!"

But after several shouts of "Do it .... do it" from the crowd, he decided to demonstrate it on state. After that, he said this ... "I learned that ... I learned it from a Nigerian artiste by the name of Wizkid ... so I don't wanna act like I created it ... it's in Nigeria."

He also gave props to Wizkid, saying "he's an incredible artist out there."

Many questions were raised when Chris Brown introduced Wizkid to stage at the Hope City concert to perform his track 'Azonto'.

Quite recently, Ghanaian Dancehall artist Samini released a single to slam Nigerian duo P-Square for copying 'Azonto' and just changing it to 'Alingo'. Nollywood star Tonto Dikeh is said to have replied to Samini's song, apparently citing her disapproval of the allegation.


The weed was fake, blame the Ghanaian media - Chris Brown


American music star Chris Brown has broken his silence on the alleged weed he smoked on stage during a performance in Ghana.

Chris Brown was alleged to have smoked “weed” on stage during his performance at the Hope City concert at the Accra Sports Stadium on March 5.

The act has received a lot of flak from civil society organizations and the general public. Notable voices that condemned the act included Minister of State and Member of Parliament for Wa Central, Rashid Pelpuo and Metropolitan Archbishop of Accra, Most Reverend Charles Palmer-Buckle.

Organizers of the concert, Charter House, categorically denied media reports that the music star smoked “weed” during his performance at the event. According to the events outfit, Chris Brown smoked a cigar, not marijuana.

But answering a question on the incident on The Breakfast Club on New York based Power 105.1 FM, on Tuesday; Chris Brown blamed the Ghanaian media for giving a negative picture to the stage craft.

He explained that: “There is a thing I did on my whole tour called smoke by the brain. So it's a part of the show that goes to a collage of all the songs that talk about weed and everybody knows I have a medical cause for marijuana but for me I don’t smoke it on stage. "

Chris Brown stressed that, “It's a fake light like the way they have the pre-rolled tobacco so at every show I fake it, now that I gave the secret away, but in certain cities like Amsterdam and LA I definitely did but as far as in places where I can get into trouble I avoid it. "

“It was the press over there that made a big foot about the whole thing, everything else was cool. It was just the press, so it made it seem like it was a situation but it was not, ”he said.



Missing Okomfour Kwadee found


Ghanaian Hip life sensation Okomfour Kwadee who was reported missing earlier this year has finally been found, Newsone can confirm.

Earlier this year, Kwadee’s mother, Cecilia Sakia, stated on Peace FM’s Entertainment Review ’that she had not set eyes on her son for close to three years.

But James Kwasi Oberko, a broadcaster from KFM in Kumasi, told Flexy on Etv’s Talk Showbiz last week that: "Okomfour Kwadee has been located in Santasi, a suburb near Kumasi in the Ashanti Region."

“When we put it out there that Kwadee had gone missing, our listeners started phoning in and some even sent several text messages giving the exact location of the rapper,” Oberko noted.

According to Oberko, some of his callers told him that the ‘Ka Wo Nan To So’ hit maker was mostly located at joints with a couple of guys smoking a substance believed to be marijuana.

“The kind of locations they gave was not good at all. We are putting ourselves together as a station to storm those locations and if we locate him, we will take the next step,” he said.

Okumfour Kwadee, for some time now, has been battling with substance abuse and mental illness.

He has been in and out of various rehab centers across the country.

One time Ghana’s representative in the Big Brother Amplified House, Confidence Haugen, is reported to have been attacked by three heavily armed robbers, according to information we are gathering.
The Aphrodisiac Night Club CEO was allegedly attacked in the wee hours of Wednesday March 13, at about 2:30 am at her Dzorwulu office in Accra. According to the source, the robbers, who appeared quite stout and well-built, wore face masks and came riding on motor bikes.
“At the time of their operation the whole area was very quiet because it was a Tuesday night going into early Wednesday morning. The club was not opened and no event was on-going, ”the source narrated.
The armed robbers, we are told, blocked the street leading to the club with their motorbikes with the engine still purring. While one of the robbers kept watch at the entrance, the two others entered the compound leading to the main building for the operation but were said to have met some fierce resistance from the security detail at the place.
A shootout then ensued but it is not too clear who fired the shots or whether anyone was hit, dead or hurt.
“The robbers proceeded to enter the yet to be opened Konfidence shop also located within the Aphrodisiac building where the labeled Konfidence shoes, bags and accessories would be exclusively sold and made away with some items,” the source told intimated.
General Manager of Aphrodisiac Night Club and Confidence’s right hand man, Mr. Johnny, confirmed the incident. According to Johnny who was present during the whole incident, the robbers also made away with a large size flat screen television set which they surprisingly carried on their motor bike, some Ipads and mobile phones among other items.
He also disclosed that though Confidence was in the building when the robbery incident occurred, she is now safe and sound.
“She is fine, nothing tragic happened to her,” he added.
Johnny, who also confirmed hearing the firing of gunshots during the incident, however, refused to provide any additional detail saying the case has been reported to the Airport Police Station who have already started investigations into the matter.


Easter celebration has become a tradition and an integral part for the Kwahu people of Ghana as well as those in diaspora. As part of the 3-day festivities organized by Kwahuman Association of New York, two of Ghana’s best movie actors, Majid Michel and John Dumelo, will hit the Big Apple this weekend to participate in Kwahu Easter 2013.
It is important to be innovative when it comes to this festive occasion which is intended to raise funds for community projects and also as part of an annual friends and family reunion. This year, Easter celebration in New York City have taken a different dimension; with the aim of attracting youth participation and to mimic the long weekend activities usually observed by our brothers and sisters in Ghana; the president of the Association, Frederick Ansong Obrempong Dwamena stressed.
In addition to the main fundraising event on Saturday, March 30th, the Limousine ride party with Majid and John on Good Friday night in the City and the Sunday red carpet cocktail at Sam's Café are all part of the weekend's activities to bring excitement to our members and the community in general, he added. The Vice President of the Association, Mr. Steve Darkwah, reemphasized the President’s commitments to fly Kwahu citizens in New York and their friends to Ghana next year to join their brothers and sisters for the 2014 Easter Homecoming Festival organized by Global Touch Production.
Majid and John flew all the way from Ghana to be part of this year’s Easter and to support the clean water project fundraising event for Kwahu Traditional area. Some members of the Association who were interviewed expressed their readiness to take part in all the 3-day events. For the first time in 30 years we are truly experiencing “real” Easter celebration similar to what we witnessed back home in Ghana; this is historic. It is a warm up for our Homecoming Easter in Ghana next year, she stressed.
The president of the Association, on his Facebook wall, appealed to Easter celebrants to use the death and resurrection of Christ meaningfully and not to engage in excessive drinking, indecent dressing and other immoral activities. This year’s event was sponsored by Prestige Travel and Tour.


Judging from the way trends are going with regards to the new movie released from the camp of Miracle Films in Ghana, if the executive producer of the movie should remain silent on the issue, then Liwin will be hotter than a fish swimming in a hot pot of soup on fire.
It's all about a movie titled “Evangelist Lilwyn” where Kumawood actor Kojo Nkansah was playing the role of a no nonsense pastor who will never allow wrong doing pass him by. In one of his reproach as a form of teachings and preaching, Lilwyn is on record to have said that “any government who will go ahead to give a whole load of money to just one person to spend is a fool”. Say this in Ghana and it will be synonymous to talking ill about the ruling National Democratic Congress party where people have questioned a controversial judgment debt paid to business man Mr. Alfred Agbesi Woyome.
Therefore for Lilwyn to have jokingly said that, it means he has hit on their wounds and there is the need for them to also fight back. The case, since it came out, has put Kojo Nkansah in chronic fear knowing very well the effects of partisan politics in our country.
In a response on radio about the allegation, Lilwyn stated emphatically that it was not his decision to make that statement, but it was his producer and director Mr Samuel Nyamekye who pursued him to make such pronouncements. “I was hesitant from the beginning but pressure from my producer made me say those words” Lilwyn said on 205 Total entertainment: Channel R in Accra last Wednesday.

In our bid to put the matter to rest, Flex newspaper decided to contact Mr. Samuel Nyamekye for his part of the story. Even before we called him for his response, there were snippets of information around town which said that some pastors are not happy with the movie and some pronouncements made by the lead character Lilwyn as a preacher. They said there is no man of God who will act like Lilwyn acted in the movie, so he should come again.
“I am even more disappointed in Mr. Samuel Nyamekye because he is still in the Bible school ready to be titled as an apostle or evangelist, so how could he allow an actor to joke with the work of God” one anonymous pastor told Flex newspaper in a telephone chat.
Mr Nyamekye has therefore responded that he sees no need why somebody should assume a statement made in the movie is about a political party and their activities. Hear him as we spoke to him last Monday in our office.

“I wonder why some people have taken this issue so personal like that. It is a movie and I hope it remains a movie without any interference or whatsoever. Now am hearing some men of God are also angry at me for not portraying them right. Don`t we have men of God like that in our movies. To those I have offended in one way or the other, I want to say sorry to all of them and also want to use this opportunity to say that they should leave Lilwyn alone to mind his business because he was only acting and following the rules of his director. I am not sure he has done something wrong to deserve warning from political groups or whatsoever. Please we were only shooting a movie so nobody should be offended ”Mr Nyamekye told Flex newspaper on phone.



Information reaching Flex newspaper from the camp of Kaakyire Kwame Fosu known in showbiz as K.K Fosu indicates that he has taken over from the President of the Musicians Union of Ghana Bice ‘Obuor’ Osei Kuffuor as ambassador for road accident awareness.
K.K Fosu who has composed a song called “Bo Wo Ho Ban” for the project will be going out and about to educate and advise the populace on the carnage on our roads and how to reduce the incidence of road accidents. He is expected to organize a press conference sooner than later to unveil this project.
To his numerous fans, you can listen to his new album entitled 'Me Ho Asem' containing hit songs like 'Bo Me Ka,' 'All About You,' 'Odo Wo Nti' including his project song 'Bo Wo Ho Ban' ' {road accident campaign song} which will be released unto the market this week.


          Efya Gets Hurt; Sings Her Heart Out
Does a public figure have a private life? This is one question people keep on debating about each and every day. Some news about celebrities get into the public domain and people ask who, what, when and how it was able to get that far.
Both the print and electronic media sometimes write stories to spread rumors about celebrities in order to either sell their papers or generate view (traffic) respectively. Controversial issues about personalities are easily spread than the good ones. Gospel musician Sonnie Badu once said ‘it's surprising how bad news spreads faster than good ones’
Whilst some celebrities would like to be in the news always with controversies surrounding them, Afro-eclectic African soulstress, Jane Awindor with stage name Efya wants the contrary. Some months ago, she jumped on American star Chris Brown’s hit song ‘Don’t Judge Me’ to pour her heart out about the rumors Ghanaians have been speculating about her.
Listening to the song, no one needs a prophet or an angel from heaven to acknowledge that Efya sang this song out of emotions - revealing how she feels to Ghanaians about bad things they talk about her.
The sensational musician in the intro of the music asked her fans not to believe the rumors they hear because they [the rumors] are not true and the fact that she doesn't react to it doesn't make it is true. ‘You hearing rumors about me, and you can stomach their thought. I won’t deny what they are saying although what none is true. But everything I do, I do it for you, ’she sang.
The talented Ghanaian songstress went further to talk about how the press spread negative rumors about her including the spread of her photos on the internet just to sully her. It can be recalled that, there were lots of criticism about her dress and make-up to last year’s Radio Television Personality (RTP) Awards. She also revealed some of the questions the press asks her which she thinks will bring problems to her. She gave a typical example like ‘Who has she slept with? Is she allergic (to drugs)? Or maybe affected? The award winning artist who used the song to react to so many issues was amazed if publicists hate it when she makes it or love it if she loses her mind?
Efya in her conclusion asked her fans to forget about the past and focus on the things which will make her be the good personality she had always wanted to be. She further added that, she should be taken just as she is whether good or bad since she has no other image anywhere. She also promised to be the one her fans can trust.
Efya is not the only musician who has emotionally released a song of this nature. Sarkodie after the Joy FM Night with the stars event where he didn’t perform released ‘The Truth’ - a song which talks about his reasons for not performing at the event. ‘Da Ghana Bwouy’ D-Black also revealed ‘Off It’ to also buttress how people talk bad about him. Samini and Kesse have also made a refix of the same track by Chris Brown.

Sarcody and Mom
"It's because of my mom that I return from my trips" Sarkodie told Delay in an interview. Michael Owusu Addo, Ghana’s title holder of ‘Artists of the Year’ is one Artist who brags a lot about his mother.
In an interview with Delay, he stated that, if he will return from his gig trip outside Ghana, it is because of his mother. To him, he hardly spends time with his mom so he makes sure he spends quality time with her when the time comes.
Still lodging in his mother’s residence, Sarkodie told Delay until he finds a convincing reason; he will not leave his mother’s house in Tema Community 9. Asked what will be convincing enough to leave his mum, mummy’s boy Michael Owusu Addo (Sarkodie) swerved the question.
Early hours of Sunday, Sarkodie released a picture of himself and his mother on his verified Twitter page. In the picture, his mother was ‘swagged’ in his ‘Sark’ branded hat and both mother and son curdling the little and ring fingers with their thumbs leaving their index and middle fingers widely stretched popularly known as ‘deuces’.

Award winning Ghanaian artist, Samini, is set to launch his personalized mobile application service.
The award winning artist is taking advantage of the latest technology trend to take his art a step closer to music lovers.
Label executives have confirmed to eNewsGH that the mobile app will be launched in Accra on Thursday February 28. The application will be available on all Blackberry, Android and Iphone devices.
A good step that is sure to rake in some fan appeal for him, Samini's team are hopeful the service will be heavily subscribed.

Sarkodie’s new album drops in August this year. Titled Sarkology, the album will be the third installment from the BET Award winner.
Sarkology will come on the heels of Sarkodie’s joint album with Jayso, the TMG (The Mind Game) album.
Sarkology will be a collection of already-released and upcoming singles, including ‘Illuminati’ and ‘Gunshot’ featuring Davido. The album will feature some of Ghana and Nigeria’s A-List acts.
"Expect show stopping surprises!" organizers of the rlg sponsored Hope City Launch Celebration concert to be headlined by international 'A' list performer, Chris Brown on Tuesday March 5 at the Accra Sports Stadium in Accra, assure fans, and urge them not to miss out on what is expected to be a fantastic concert from the man popularly known as Chris Breezy.
Preparations are ahead to commence the construction of a mega stage at the Accra Sports Stadium in readiness for the concert, which is expected to feature local supporting acts including R2Bees, Samini, Efya, D-Black and Sherifa Gunu.
People, who are skeptical about attending such a huge outdoor concert at the stadium, fearing attacks by hoodlums, are being assured by the organizers to expect improved organizational technique and strategies which is aimed to give them a comfortable and secure ambiance to enjoy themselves. The producers of the show promise that every patron, whether they were in the popular stand or in the VIP area set on the grounds in front of the stage, gets a great experience. The show will be heavy on dancing and patrons are urged to come in comfortable shoes.
Proudly powered by Ghana’s No. 1 ICT company, rlg, the Hope City Launch Concert is in commemoration of the sod cutting for a new technology village - Hope City. It is produced by leading events management company, Charterhouse, with support from GhOne Entertainment TV and Empire Entertainment.
I would want to call this year's Ghana Music Awards R2Bees Honor Awards. ‘Walahi’ the duo has done incredibly amazing over the years.
Surprisingly R2Bees has not received Award from Charter House before ever since their inception into the musical stream. Though they have had several nominations, none of them went to Tema. Made up of Faisal Hakeem (Paedae da Pralem) and Rashid Mugeez, the name R2Bees stands unassailable whenever any Ghanaian is arguing the prowess of a duo from Ghana.
Bringing back the indigenous Ghanaian Musical Culture with ‘Odo’, R2Bees is credited with Cotemporary High Life badges. Honestly, I was not surprised when I saw their name in 9 categories and gracing it with the Artist of Year nomination. They really deserve more than 9, in my own humble opinion.
I'm challenging you to mention 5 hit songs in Ghana at the moment and if you do not mention ‘Odo’ and ‘Life (Walahi)’ then you are a tourist. Comfortably relaxing on 2 hits songs, the Tema based songsters have attracted the attention of Forbes List where the world's acclaimed magazine published that, R2Bees is one of the names to watch out for. It seems Forbes' prophecy is materializing.
In the publication Forbes published “Ghanaian mega-group R2Bees, made up of Faisal Hakeem (Paedae da Pralem) and Rashid Mugeez, is behind some of the biggest hits coming out of West Africa. The hip-hop / hiplife group’s highly anticipated single featuring London-born, Ghanaian artist, Tinchy Stryder is due out in 2013. "
Out of 9 nominations, I can confidently point out that, R2Bees will sweep 7 Awards including the Artist of the Year slot. I would doubt the credibility of Ghana Music Awards if the duo receives anything less than 7.
Indeed, R2Bees deserves a path on their hardworking backs for such spectacular works and they have really proven that their trap has caught Ghana Music ‘Bayla’.


 Another Four Months Before Vybz Kartel Goes To Court Again
It may be a new year, but the same problems are rearing their ugly heads in the ongoing murder trial of internationally-acclaimed deejay, Vybz Kartel.Kartel's trial in the murder case of Clive 'Lizard' Williams was scheduled to get underway at the Home Circuit Court in Kingston on Monday. However, the matter was postponed yet again after lawmakers determined there were insufficient jurors.
The prosecution and defense teams in Kartel's case expressed their disappointment with the development as they were ready to proceed.
Nevertheless, they will all reconvene on May 27, when the trial is expected to commence.
This is the second postponement of the matter since it was originally set to begin last November. However, the case was delayed until Jan. 21 as Kartel's lawyer, Valerie Neita-Robertson was working on a separate case.
Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, faces one count of murder in the case along with Shawn Campbell aka Shawn Storm, Kahira Jones, Andre St. John other Calvin 'Moonie' Haye. The latter of the accused is currently on bail.
Each of the men are accused of killing Williams during an incident at a Havendale residence in St. Andrew in August 2011.
Law enforcement officials later claimed they captured video and audio evidence linking each of the accused to the murder. Williams' body has not been found.
Songstress Jane Awindor, known affectionately as Efya, was embroiled in a showdown with some security personnel over their refusal to allow her go smoke with a couple of her friends at the well-attended 'Sarkodie Live In Concert' held last month at the Accra International Conference Center, Dome.

The artist was billed to perform her song ‘Devil in Me’ with Sarkodie on the night, and after her act, she together with five of her friends wanted a convenient place at the Dome to enjoy some bouts of smoking.

The artist who has been in the news over her smoking habits, was engaged in some exchange of words when she requested the security detail manning the premises to allow her to ostensibly go have some fresh air at the back of the Dome, which is a restricted area.

According to one of the top security personnel, their attention was drawn to a remote section of the Dome when an unscrupulous fellow cut a portion of the tent to enable him to enter the premises without a ticket.

Whiles they were handling the situation, Efya approached the area in the company of her friends, wanting to have access through the back of the tent to go do their own thing.

The security personnel explained to the chart-topping artist that the area was not safe and was a restricted area, advising her to go behind the backstage to do whatever she wanted to do with her friends.

The visibly agitated songstress told the personnel that she only wanted to have access to the restricted area to enjoy fresh air with her friends.

“She and her friends wanted to use the remote part of the Dome to go have fresh air and I explained to her that it was not allowed and if indeed, she needed a feel of fresh air, it was only convenient she used the area around the backstage to enjoy that privilege, "one senior security personnel explained.

The stance by the security team didn't go down well with Efya as she was heard ranting, "It's only for fresh air, you know, I just need fresh air."

"I didn't even know who she was until I refused her and somebody prompted me that she is Efya. I would have still refused her access if I knew who she is, I was just executing my assigned duties, ”the senior security agent stressed.

According to the other security personnel present at the venue, Efya actually went to some secluded area around the Dome to smoke what they said were packs of cigarettes with her legion of girlfriends.

In recent times, the artist has made headlines for her rumored intake of drugs such as cocaine, an assertion the artist has vehemently denied although she confidently revealed that she does smoke nothing but cigarettes.

The Chief Executive Officer of the Millennium Development Authority (MIDA), Martin Eson-Benjamin has admitted failure to properly site footbridges on the George Walker Bush Highway (N1 Highway).

He told Joy News on Tuesday that not enough was done by his outfit in terms of survey, leading to, in some cases, misplaced footbridges on the 14.1 km three-lane dual carriageway. The road has six footbridges, 13 bus bays and 23 minor junctions.

Barely a year after the inauguration of the highway in February 2012, numerous accidents have occurred on it, claiming over 70 lives - many were pedestrians crossing the road.

Many residents who felt the footbridges were inconveniently placed preferred using seconds to cross the highway to walking minutes to use the nearest football bridge, a decision which has claimed some lives.

An 11 year girl was killed on Monday instantly after she was knocked down by a speeding car when she was crossing the Lapaz section of the N1 Highway to school.

Martin Eson-Benjamin admitted: "I think that enough survey has been made now for everybody to know exactly which area needs a footbridge because when we were doing it initially we were not very, very sure where to put the footbridges."

City authorities say more bridges would be constructed to safeguard pedestrians. But MIDA would not play a part in the construction; Martin Eson-Benjamin explained that the project has been handed over to the Ghana Highway Authority.

Meanwhile, metal mesh is being constructed to divide the six lane road to make it difficult, if not impossible, for people to cross the highway.

Mayor of Accra, Alfred Vanderpuye told Joy News, “What I have noticed is that at certain points spaces have been left in between, and sometimes individual or collective of persons are attempted to go through that small space. So at our last meeting I have instructed that those small spaces must also be covered. "

He confirmed that they have earmarked about 10 footbridges to be constructed at various points.

Agya Koo Refunds GHȻ2,000 To Complainant

The popular Ghanaian actor and commedian, Kofi Adu, known in movie circles as Agya Koo has refunded GHȻ2,000 as part payment to Mr Stephen Kwarteng, who has accused him of fraud.

Agya Koo, who has been accused of defrauding Stephen Kwarteng under the pretext of obtaining him visa to travel abroad made the payment in court when the case was called Tuesday.

The case resumed on Tuesday to enable the prosecution to correct defects on the charge sheet.

However, the court could not immediately reconcile the balance of $ 1,000 to be paid to the complainant and gave lawyers of the accused person a month to reconcile the amount and then come back to the court.

The case was adjourned to January 31, 2013.

Though Kofi Adu was granted bail on Monday his charges were again read out to him. He pleaded not guilty.

His lead counsel, Mr Joseph Turkson, who pleaded for bail said there was a transaction between his client and the complainant and that if his client failed to fulfill his part of the contract the proper thing for him to do was to refund the money which they were ready to do.

Ms Naomi Nelson Kwofie, who represented Captain Nkrabeah Effah-Darteh (retd), Counsel for Kofi Adu, also pleaded with the court to grant him bail since her client had met the bail conditions.

Wearing a white T-shirt over black trousers, Kofi Adu looked calm in the dock.

He has been charged with three counts of attempt to commit crime, migrant smuggling and fraud.

The Prosecutor, DSP Mary L. Agbozo said on March 8, 2011 at Tabora in Accra and Kumasi in the Greater Accra Circuit and within the jurisdiction of the court, Kofi Adu attempted to unlawfully migrate Stephen Kwarteng by facilitating his departure to the USA by collecting GHȻ2,170 and $ 1,000 respectively from him.

The prosecution said the facts of the case were that, the complainant was a trader who has a sister living in the USA.

It said the complainant had the desire to visit the sister and discussed with a friend who led him to Kofi Adu at Alhaji Tabora, a suburb of Accra.

The accused person was said to have confirmed his ability to assist the complainant to travel to the USA and sited instances which the complainant believed.

The prosecutor said the accused person charged the complainant a fee of $ 10,000 covering visa, work permit and a return air ticket and asked the complainant to make advance payment of $ 850 as processing fee and also paid $ 1000 as part payment of fee charged.

The accused person then called the complainant to bring the money to him in Kumasi which he did.

Afterwards, the accused took the complainant together with ten other people to the US Embassy in Accra and assured him he would get the visa.

But while the complainant was waiting at the Embassy the accused sneaked out of the premises and rather called on telephone later on for them to meet him at Busy Internet near the Kwame Nkrumah Circle.

Upon meeting them he gave them excuses in relation to his inability to secure the visa.

After a series of excuses from the accused since 2011, the complaint got fed up and became apprehensive. The accused later told the complainant he would secure an Australian visa for him and demanded an additional GH1150 but failed to honor that one too.

The complainant severally demanded for a refund of his money but the accused offered excuses.

On January 8, 2013 however, a report was lodged with the Anti-Human Trafficking Unit at the CID Headquarters and the accused was invited through telephone but failed to turn up.

The police again called him on January 18, 2013 and he reported and was subsequently arrested on warrant, detained and charged with the offense after investigations.

Sultry Ghanaian actress has taken over her twitter handle again, and this time she is sending a clear message of her being a lonely maiden.
If you know the ‘controversial’ actress so well, then you will know that she doesn’t give a hoot at those who will bash her over her fun and life.
And in that vein, she has come out to debunk her state of relationship with the Kukere master-Iyanya. "I'm not in any relationship now ... Love is a beautiful thing ... humans make it ugly ... I still believe in love", she wrote.
Her response comes few days after news wires suggested she and Iyanya are back on track, after an earlier report of a strained affair.
But the big question is, who is pulling strings and who is playing pranks here?
For an actress cum producer who recently churned out one of the hottest movies in 2012 - Single and Married, which thus, rolled in accolades such as Best Film, Best Cinematography, and Best Director, at the just concluded 2012 Ghana Movie Awards, that's a question for another day.

Ghanaian Pop / R & B star, Jon Germain will on Thursday the 10th of January 2013 drop his newest single 'In Her Arms' from the album 'Enigma' on the 'Drive Time' on Joy 99.7 FM hosted by Bola Ray and an exclusive interview would be done on Saturday.
The song which talks about finding utmost love in his lover’s arms where comfort is keen, is Jon Germain’s newest single from his album ‘Enigma’.
The first single off ‘Enigma’ titled Tell Me ’was ranked 8th in the world by Atlantic Magazine which is a credible source of news and entertainment in the USA.
His debut album was also endorsed by Chris Martin the band leader of ColdPlay. Artists featuring on ‘Enigma’ are SupaFly, Charlie Corrie, Damien Alexander, Ouala, Lighter, award winning singer and songwriter Tania Tome of Mozambique and others.
Jon Germain so far has ‘This is who I am’ his maiden album to his credit. The 7-track album features J Town and Jayso and It has tracks like In my head (his first single), Can’t explain, Quiver, among others.
The world of music would be appalled by ‘Enigma’ because this album is a typical ‘sky rocketeer’ for Jon’s career as a musician due to very good production, songwriting and brilliant vocal performance.
Jon Germain is signed to the record label I-Contact and managed by NaturesClue Entertainment.

Bandana and IWAN kick start their music year with a lyrical beef.
If these two were in the same room someone would be taken to the morgue. But thank goodness for technology they share their grievances on songs and Facebook.
According to Bandana, IWAN was the aggressor who ignited the feud. “IWAN came back from London went on radio, poured a whole lot of insults on me. He said Rastafaria is older than my mother and father. They went to Volta region, told the fans to stop listening to any Shatta movement music because I preach violence. I went to Akuma village on the 29th of December, 2012 for a show and his MC said it open in the Mic and I quote: If you don’t like Shatta Movement say fire burn !!! ”
After this incident Bandana released a song directed at IWAN titled ‘A Letter To IWAN’. IWAN replied on his Facebook page that, “Blessed morning to the force. Give thanks for patience and humbleness. No Gideon Force member should take the diss to my Mum a joke? But we are civilized, so we take things orderly. 3days and I will end all the fuckery. Thanks for ur patience and nobody attack nobody. Leave it in my hands. I have taking all ur advices and I appreciate and will consider them. I love My Mummy and I will make her proud ”.
Bandana didn't seem bothered and told Ghana Music.com that “I am waiting for him to do what he wants to do in three days if suck your mother is a diss to his mum”.
Bandana also shed some light on that he thinks he is been influenced.
Gideon Force fans of IWAN are still waiting for IWAN to drop a retaliation joint.
