“SHOW SOME RESPECT”, TIC TAC TELLS SHATTA WALE

A Ghanaian music icon, Tic Tac has taken a swipe at Dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale for picking on him during an interview on the Delay show.

Shatta Wale in an interview, labeled Tic Tac as not smart, referring to him as not making business out of showbiz.

However, Tic Tac in his response during an interaction with a section of the media, expressed disappointment and took an exception at the remark by Shatta Wale. Tic Tac said he does not fall in the category of people shatta Wale perceive as not-smart.

According to him, Shatta’s attitude of picking and disrespecting his colleague musicians without merit, and provocation, does not make him smart.

“What Shatta Wale is doing, unnecessary picking on other artistes without provocation, doesn’t make him a smart person, smart people don’t do what he is doing”, Tic Tac added.

He said, “I personally like his music and what he’s doing as an artiste it makes it fun and it keeps the industry going but when you decide to pick on artiste wh…

Parliament rejects Nov 7 date change

Parliament has rejected amendments to change the election date to November after it failed to amass 183 votes needed to effect the historic change.
After a secret ballot, the Speaker said Parliament was unable to obtain the 184 needed to pass the bill. The vote quashing the change became predictable after the Minority signaled it would not support the Bill which needed a super majority to succeed.
Debating the Constitutional Amendment Bill 2016, Minority Leader and Suame MP Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu said although the Minority agrees in principle to the change, it is disappointed in the sloppy way the EC has handled it.
He argued that in Kenya, important electoral reforms were completed 10 months clear ahead of their general elections.
He condemned the EC for the poor management of the process and said the EC had demonstrated that it was not ready for November 7.
The Minority leader said the EC has a Continuous Registration Exercise to conduct to allow more eligible voters to register.
