I endorse ‘1-Village-1-Dam’ policy – Tumu Chief

The Paramount Chief of the Tumu Traditional Area, Kuoro Richard Babini Kanton VI, has endorsed the ‘1-District-1-Factory’ and the ‘1-Village-1-Dam’ policies of the 2016 presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

According to him, these policies are the surest ways by which the teeming masses of unemployed youth in his town can be gainfully employed, as the twin-track of industrialisation and the increase in agricultural productivity will create jobs and bring prosperity to his people.

Expressing his hope that “whatever you have been fighting for over the past years, this time round you will have it” the Paramount Chief of Tumu indicated to the NPP flagbearer that he has been keenly monitoring the various campaign messages of the various parties, and had come to the conclusion that the promises being made by Nana Akufo-Addo can be implemented.

The atmosphere in the studios of Atinka FM on Monday was a shimmering one as Managing Editor of then Insight Newspaper, Mr. Kwesi Pratt clashed with controversial musician A’ Plus over his new political song, “ Aben b3 b)m"

Lucky Mensah in August last year was reported to have said that he is disappointed in NDC. The artiste real name Alex Mensah said the NDC deserted him after he composed a song that served as the theme for the party’s ele…

I will never perform at a night club - Ohemaa Mercy

The recent Favourite Gospel Icon Award Winner at the Kids’ Choice Awards 2016, Oheema Mercy has said without any fear that she will never perform at the night club no matter the amount of money involved. She said this on the TIG Show with Franky5 on Hitz FM.

According to the gospel artiste, she will never perform at the night club even if souls are perishing because she feels that isn’t the only place to reach out to them and so she will never be there even if that is the only option.
She believes there are so many other places she could reach out to the souls apart from the club.

Contrary to what other gospel artistes think about the gospel industry and showbiz, she has made it clear that for her the gospel music is a ministry and not showbiz since it’s all about impacting lives positively and transforming people with her songs.

According to her if one is not careful, the person is likely to attract the wrath of God if he/she doesn’t do it well. She believes gospel is a calli…

Hong Kong election: Anti-China activists set to take LegCo seats

A new generation of anti-China activists have won seats on Hong Kong's Legislative Council (LegCo), preliminary results indicate.
Among them is Nathan Law, one of the young leaders of the mass pro-democracy demonstrations of 2014, who is now on course to win a constituency seat.

It is the first taste of real political power for the young protest leaders.
But pro-Beijing politicians will retain a majority of seats, partly because of the electoral system.
Results were delayed by a record voter turnout, which saw some 58% of 3.8 million registered voters queue up, compared with 45.2% in 2008. Full results are due later on Monday.
The election is the first in the territory since the 2014 "Umbrella Protests", which saw central areas of Hong Kong paralysed by mostly young protesters.
They were demanding greater democracy for the territory amid concerns that Beijing was increasingly interfering in Hong Kong politics, breaking the "one country two systems" agreem…
