Sarkodie’s ‘Kanta’ Is Wack – KK Fosu

Highlife artiste, KK Fosu has described Sarkodie’s ‘Kanta’ as the worst he has ever done.

Speaking on Happy FM, KK Fosu said the lyrical content of the songs leaves much to be desired. He indicated that though he will not choose M.anifest over Sarkodie on any day, the latter spewed a lot of silly stuffs which is not expected from an artiste of his caliber.

“Sarkodie’s ‘Kanta’ track is the wackest he’s done. Because I know what he can do. He could do better than this. It was a rush. Some of the lyrics were ‘nonfa’. He’s on top so definitely people will accept it,” he noted. “But if you listen to M.anifest, he never insulted but you feel the heat,” KK Fosu added.

The ‘Am back’ singer who once engaged in a lyrical war with Samini (then Batman) further remarked that apart from the fame, nothing good comes out of artistes dissing each other. “We’ve done it before. It wasn’t productive. Just the fame” he told host, Dr Cann.

Sarkodie on Sunday released ‘Kanta’ as a reply to M.anife…

Blood & Acid Will Flow Tomorrow! Krachi West NPP Members Warn Executives

With few months left into this year’s general election, most political parties are working assiduously to present a front that would be difficult for an opponent to penetrate.

But with the gaping hole developing in the New Patriotic Party over the controversial suspension of its elected Parliamentary Candidate for Krachi West, Kenneth Gyemah, national executives of the party must hurriedly step-in and act to patch the crack.

For over a year now, Kenneth Gyemah, the NPPs’ parliamentary nominee for the Krachi West Constituency in the Volta Region, has suffered venality following reports that he has been relieved of his nominee status.

Despite getting 221 votes to be declared the party’s parliamentary candidate for Krachi West, some NPP executives in the Volta Region are planning to hold another parliamentary primary tomorrow to elect a different candidate for the area.

Blood Will Flow

The plan has infuriated some loyal members of the party who have swore to let blood flow s…

Montie FM Saga...NDC Boys Threaten Otabil, Rev. Martey

It has emerged that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Communications Team members who threatened to kill the judges promised to kill some pastors as well.

They said the pastors had been openly supporting the bid of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, to become president and therefore when the Supreme Court finally ‘plunges’ the country into chaos through the usurpation of the powers of the Electoral Commission (EC) ahead of the November elections, the pastors would have their share of physical attacks.

They specifically mentioned Pastor Mensa Otabil, General Overseer of the International Central Gospel Church; Rev. Prof. Emmanuel Martey, Moderator of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana and Christian Council General Secretary, Rev Dr. Kwabena Opuni Frempong, as their targets.

These comments were specifically uttered by Alistair Nelson on a pro-NDC radio station – Montie FM – which is a sister station to …

God has ordained Nana Addo to be president – Chief

Nana Ansah Adu Baah II, Chief of the Yamfo Traditional Area, in the Tano North constituency, says the current economic hardships and difficulties confronting his people require nothing short of a change of government in this year’s elections.

Re-echoing the sentiments of his linguist, Nana Badu, who prayed to the gods for a change in government, Nana Ansah Adu Baah II stated that “we have suffered too much in this country and we need change. I am a Chief and I don’t engage in partisan politics. However, I will never ‘spoil’ my vote.”

According to the Yamfo Chief, “If you live in a country and you’re suffering, be minded by what our father, President Kufuor, said sometime back which was ‘take a look at the circumstances of your life and vote wisely. Over the last few years, we have seen those who are in politics to help us and those who are in for their own selfish, parochial interests.”

Nana Ansah Adu Baah II made this known when the 2016 presidential candidate of the New Pa…

Suhum: Girl, 26, dies at father’s funeral

A 26-year-old girl has died after she was knocked down by a vehicle while helping to provide refreshment at her father’s funeral at Suhum in the Eastern region.

The deceased, Afua, from Prestea met her untimely death at the Suhum Fire Service junction Saturday.

The body has since been deposited at the Suhum Government Hospital morgue.

Afua joined her family from Prestea to attend the funeral of her father, Adu Maxwell, who also reportedly died through an accident last month.

She was serving mourners when a speeding saloon car heading to Suhum from Kumasi skidded off the road and veered into the funeral grounds, crushing her in the process.

Her sister also collapsed after the accident but has regained consciousness.

Meanwhile, two other mourners attending the funeral from Accra were also involved in an accident Saturday dawn.

The Suhum Police commander, Supt. Yahaya Muchiraru, has confirmed the incident.
