I have been single all my life – King Promise

 king-promise

Rising Ghanaian musician, King Promise, has made a very ‘controversial’ revelation about his relationship status contrary to the thinking of many Ghanaians.

Born Gregory Bortey Promise Newman, the ‘CCTV’ crooner has stated emphatically that he is not a fan of going on dates. He explained that he prefers to rather stay home all day.

In an interview on Celebrity Fanzone, he also revealed that he has never had a girlfriend and had gone on only three dates all his life.

“I have never gone on dates. I have been on two dates my whole life because I have never had a girlfriend. The first time I went on a date was three years ago and it happened twice after,” he disclosed.

“I will order the ‘waakye’ and take home. I am always home. A lot of stuff I used to do, I can no longer do,” he added.

It has been reported this week that some entertainments pundits are worried that with the opposition calling the president of Ghana ‘King Promise’, it might go against his brand.

However, King Promise has insisted that President Nana Akufo-Addo being tagged “King Promise” by his political opponents is something he finds funny, which doesn’t bother him.

“It’s funny when I see it all the time. I always laugh when I see stuff like that. I don’t have a problem with it honestly, having them call the president by my name kind of funny. He is the president, who’s gonna say he doesn’t like it. It doesn’t take anything away from me.”

King Promise is billed to perform at this year’s Ghana Meets Naija concert slated for June 9 at the Fantasy Dome in Accra.

Currently, his ‘CCTV’ track has taken over airwaves in Ghana.

Ghanaian rapper, Ex Doe claims he was offered an amount of 50, 000 Cedis to compose a song for the Gay community in Ghana.

He made the claims during an interview on JOY FM with Lexis Bill, and spoke about his position on Homosexuality.

“I was contacted with an amount of 50,000 Ghana Cedis to do a gay rights campaign song for the gay community,” stated Ex Doe. “I am not gay but I don’t have anything against gay people. There are prostitutes out there whom some people don’t like but they are there. Let’s leave people to live their lives how they please. God will judge us all at the end.”

The ‘Maba’ act is the second Ghanaian artiste in recent times to suggest that people should be allowed to do what they want, whilst sharing an opinion on what has become a thorny issue in Ghana.

Singer Kidi in an April 2018 interview stated that people should be allowed to “do whatever they want to do with their lives.”

“I usually have thoughts and options on issues but homosexuality is such a sensitive topic that I have decided for myself that I am never going to have a say in that. People should do whatever they want to

do with their lives. I don’t want to be part of it.” stated the ‘Odo’ crooner to Prince Benjamin, host of Class Drive on Class 91.3 FM.

He also didn’t want to offend anyone with his comments.

“If you asked this question about 5 to ten years ago, the answer would have been ‘No’ but now, unfortunately, as much as we don’t want, the world is evolving, things are changing and everybody is thinking wide and outside the box. As an artiste, I have a lot of things to do and I wouldn’t like to step on toes.”

In a recent comment, Theresah May, Prime Minister of UK stated that her country is ready to help former colonies on the African continent inlcuding Ghana to abolish anti-gay laws.

Appietus Can’t Handle MUSIGA – Rex Omar ClaimsXGltYWdlc1xjb250ZW50XDMxNjIwMTgxMjQxNDFfYXBwaWV0dXMuanBnfDc3MHw0MDB8My8xNi8yMDE4

eteran musician Rex Omar has stated that sound engineer Appiah Dankwa, popularly known as Appietus, does not have what it takes to lead the Musician Union of Ghana (MUSIGA).

Speaking in an interview on Starr Chat with Bola Ray on Wednesday, he mentioned that Appietus can’t be MUSIGA president, explaining that “the dynamics at MUSIGA go beyond his capabilities.”

“I know people are trying to step into the shoes of Obuor, but most of the people are just trying to ‘chop the post’. I don’t believe Appietus understands what MUSIGA stands for. Appietus cannot handle MUSIGA, it’s not as easy as people think it is,” Rex added.

Appietus last contested for the position in October 2015 but he lost to Obour who retained the seat by winning 88 votes to beat his contenders – Gyedu Blay Ambulley and Appietus – who polled 22 and 18 votes respectively.

Appietus, as alleged, is seeking to contest again.
But Rex Omar has his misgivings about him becoming MUSIGA president.

He, however, observed that Obour did well for MUSIGA, grading his performance 70 percent.

“When he started he was young and passionate and so cannot be said to be perfect, but I think Obour has done well and I’ll score him 70 percent. He has taken MUSIGA to another level. The question is when Obour leaves, who will be able to take MUSIGA to another level?” he questioned.

I wish Ebony were my daughter — Oheneba Kissihijabhcg

It seems it’s not only young people who have fallen in love with Dancehall artiste, Ebony, the older generation seems to have caught the bug too.

One such person is Highlife musician, Oheneba Kissi, who describes her as the best among all the female musicians.

Although he is yet to meet her in person, Oheneba Kissi told Showbiz in an interview last Saturday he wished she were his daughter.

“I wish I had a daughter like Ebony because she is so talented and extraordinary. I would have pampered her, sang with her and showed her love like my only child, ” he said.

According to Oheneba Kissi, he has listened to songs from Ebony and he would choose her over all the female musicians in Ghana.

“The other female musicians are good but Ebony is much better. I don’t know how she does it but her voice is unique and everything about her is so cool,” he said.

The ABC Of Love hitmaker said he is more than willing to do a collaboration with Ebony anytime and any day because the 90s bad girl’s brand is super.

According to him, he would teach her a thing or two in music should their paths cross.

“For a musician like me to associate his brand with Ebony shows how much I admire what she is doing. She is doing so well and I’m rooting for her to win VGMA Artiste of the Year next year,” he said.

Switching to what he is currently up to, the Chartered Accountant, who last came out with an album in 2008 said he will be releasing a new one next year.

According to the artiste, who has 15 albums to his credit, he is studying the game to know which songs Ghanaians want because the music scene has changed now.

“ Gone were the days when I and some other musicians were all over the place playing shows and making the money but now we have a different crop of musicians who are doing fantastic,” he added.

Oheneba Kissi advised the young musicians to draw closer to the older musicians to tap into their knowledge to boost their careers.




Don’t worsen our sorrows – Ebony’s aunt responds to ‘revelations’ebony...-696x437-696x437

Many ‘revelations’ have been made by selfprofessed prophets since the death of Dancehall artiste,Ebony, some of which are quiet unpleasant and the family isn’t pleased at all.

Madam Mercy Frimpomaa, a maternal aunt of Ebony, who was seen with the Sponsor hitmaker in a video shot when she visited her mother in Sunyani has even been accused of being behind her death.

And in interview with Showbiz at the One Week observation of Ebony at the St Martin De Porres School in Dansoman, Madam Frimpomaa described such ‘revelations’ as unfortunate.

“It is very painful to hear such things especially when the family is grieving.

What will you gain by speaking such lies? I’m already hurt and these comments hurt me more.

I have heard so many things after the death of my daughter which are quite unfortunate.

“I don’t want to believe that any member of my family including me or any of her colleagues is responsible for her death because it could be her destiny.

However, if anyone is truly responsible for her death, I pray that she will be avenged,” she said.

According to Madam Frimpomaa, who is the younger sister of Ebony’s mother, her ecstatic mood in the video was genuine because she had not seen her niece in a long time.

“I rushed to my sister’s house immediately I heard that Ebony would be visiting.

You know, her mother is not based in Ghana so we were all surprised by her visit.

Besides, it was a good opportunity for a family reunion,” she stated.

However, the family reunion, she said, was short-lived when she had a call from Ebony’s mother early on Friday giving her such bad news.

“I just couldn’t believe the news so I told my sister not to talk like that.

She insisted her daughter was dead but I was sure it was mistaken identity because I saw an energetic young girl just a few hours ago.

When I confirmed it myself, I was grief stricken and that has been my mood since then,” she

Other family members who spoke with Showbiz said they were yet to come to terms with Ebony’s death.

Akosua, is a paternal cousin to Ebony and she expressed how devastated she had been since her death.

“My sister is too young to die.

The ideal situation is to see a child bury the parents but in her case, she had to be buried at such a young age.

I’m so heartbroken especially when she was bringing glory to the family and the country,” she said.

Another cousin, Adwoa Frimpomaa told Showbiz,“I had heard and listened to her songs but I didn’t even know that she was a relative until I saw her father, who is my uncle, in one of her videos.

Last year, I heard he had come to town with her for a show so I made time to meet them and that was when my
uncle officially introduced us.

“Even though that was the first time we met each other, she was so pleasant and she had promised to see me on her next visit,” Adwoa Frimpomaa, Ebony’s cousin said.

Nana Ama is the wife of Ebony’s maternal uncle and she told Showbiz how she had to be strong for her children who were beyond control when they heard of the Hustler singer’s death.

“One of my children collapsed immediately after hearing Ebony’s demise.

We can’t question God so we just have to be strong and console ourselves in these difficult times,” she said.

Ghana’s self-acclaimed Dancehall King, Shatta Wale took many by surprise when he took the microphone to make his first comment at Ebony’s one week memorial.
According to Shatta who wept during his brief remark, Ghanaians, especially the media, are very hypocrites.

“Ghanaians when will you support your own? When will you support your own artistes? The media men who are here are the same people who insulted Ebony.”
“They said she doesn’t respect, she has shown her breasts, she had shown her private parts, and instead of supporting her, they rather tried to bring her down, HYPOCRITES!” Shatta Wale shouted.
Wale went on to pray to God to destroy all his haters, and also those of Ebony.
Meanwhile, Ebony’s final funeral rites have been slated for March 17, 2018.


Sarkodie Makes ‘Serious’ Revelation About His ‘Association’ With IlluminatiSarkodie

Hip-Life superstar, Michael Owusu Addo, known in showbiz as Sarkodie, says he is not bothered when people think his continuous rise is because he is a member of the secret society, Illuminati.

Illuminati refers to several groups of both real and fictitious secret society perceived to be controlling events in the world.

Members of Illuminati are believed possess the deep secrets to acquiring wealth, fame and influence.

Since Sarkodie’s meteoric rise to the apex of show business in Ghana, rumours have suggested that he has joined the secret society – like many in showbiz are rumoured to have done.

Those who claim to under Illuminati symbolism say this hand gesture belongs to the secret group

Responding to the rumours that he is a member of the society on The Hard Truth on the Joy News channel on MultiTV, Wednesday, Sarkodie suggested that although he is not affiliated to the group, the tag makes him feel positive about his achievements.

“I take it in a positive way…For [people] to make that comparison then it should tell you where you are. I am worried more [about] people who care about me, not what is said about me…I am more worried about family members who [broke down over the Illuminati tag] and it got to them.

“That was the only reason why I did the song. But personally, I don’t care. I think it is a good situation to be in [when] people feel like there is something more than just talent that can make you who you are,” he told show host Akosua Konadu.

In the song he released to dispel the rumours, Sakordie said he would have been an owner of an estate in Hawaii had he been a member of the secret society



Lilwin Is Not My Class – Agya Koo BoastsXGltYWdlc1xjb250ZW50XDI0MjAxODkzNjE0XzMyMzEzNDgxMzQ1N18zNzMwNjA1NjE0MjE2LmpwZ3w5OTB8Mi81LzIwMTg=

Popular Kumawood actor Egya Koo born Kofi Adu has said no one in the industry is his competition, not even fellow actor Kwadwo Nkansah aka Lil Win.

He said contrary to reports that Lil Win is more popular than he is, any Kumawood actor is yet to reach the height he [Egya Koo] has reached.

Speaking at the launch of his new mobile app, Egya Koo 2CTV Sunday, he said he has achieved so much to by putting Kumawood on the map.

Agya Koo who said his acting career has been blessed by God added that he is not threatened in any way by actors like Lil Win.XGltYWdlc1xjb250ZW50XDI0MjAxODkzNjExXzg3NTA0NzhfNzg2NjM3LmpwZ3w3NzB8Mi81LzIwMTg=

Kumawood actor Lil Win
He said when it comes to comedy and entertaining people in movies other actors can only dream to reach the height of his success.

Explaining why he is no longer prominent in Kumawood movies, he alleged that there was a meeting by some Kumawood filmmakers to deliberately sabotage him.

He claimed this was after he refused to pose naked in the historical ‘Komfo Anokye movie.

The actor with close to 100 movies to his credit said as someone who has campaigned against pornography in local movies, there was no way he could have posed naked in a movie.

Lashing out to some Kumawood filmmakers, he said nothing could turn him away from doing what he believes is right because many people are looking up to him.

The ‘Ma Tricki Wo’ actor said it is rather laughable that the filmmakers believe not casting him will affect him financially.

He stressed that with his own productions and new initiatives like the newly launched app, he is living a comfortable life.

Egya Koo called on Ghanaians to support their own and download the Egya Koo 2CTV app as he has alot up his sleeves when it comes to entertainment.

Some Parts Of Kidi’s ‘Odo’ Lyrics Make No Sense – Lucky LawsonXGltYWdlc1xjb250ZW50XDExMjcyMDE3MTI0MTM4X2x1Y2tpZWxhd3NvbmFuZGtpZGkuanBnfDk5MHwxMS8yOC8yMDE3

Actress Luckie Lawson has expressed dissatisfaction with the lyrical content of Kidi’s hit song ‘Odo’ and took to social media over the weekend to poke fun at the rising musician.

According to her, part of the song which glorifies death over life doesn’t smack a sense of maturity.

In that part of the song, Kidi reveals he does not mind dying for his lady’s love. But Luckie thinks that it’s a “high school” assertion.

“Kidi so you said because of love if you die it’s nothing. That’s high school talk. OK. You wait, if you grow, then you will know love is foolishness. You will say Luckie said it,” Luckie Lawson said on social media on Instagram and Facebook on Saturday.

The post generated a lot of reactions on both Facebook and Instagram, with most people making fun of the artiste, while others say Kidi will grow up to know the truth.


Efya walks out of interview after she was told Nigerian jollof is the bestefya-1

Over the weekend, Ghanaian music diva Efya was in Lagos as she was billed to perform at the 2017 Buckwyld n Breathless concert.

As part of her media tour, she came by the NET for an interview where she spoke about her affiliations with Wizkid, the Starboy imprint, challenges in the Ghanaian music industry and also hinted on releasing a new project.

During the interview, we put the singer on the spotlight by asking her if she thinks Nigerian jollof is better than Ghanaian jollof and her reaction was… she walked away -for a short while.

The Jollof war between Nigeria and Ghana has been ongoing for the longest time and it is expected that the singer would come to the defence of her people.

The battle between Nigerian and Ghanaian Jollof Rice has reached almost epic proportions online.

There is a constant argument on Twitter between Nigerians and Ghanaians over which country has the best Jollof Rice.

Nigerians scored a lot of points in the Jollof Rice debate when Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg visited Nigeria in August 2016 and gushed about the country’s Jollof Rice.



I’m too ‘jeje’ for Bukom Banku – Sista Afiasister-afia-1

Highlife artiste, Sista Afia has said she is too ‘jeje’ for Bukom-based boxer Bukom Banku.

She made this known in an interview with Pulse.com.gh’s David Mawuli.

When asked if the brand of Bukom Banku is the best of brands, Sista Afia however, said she cannot determine the brand direction for the boxer who was currently defeated in a well-publicized bout against Bastie Samir.

She said “I’m not the right person to determine whether Bukom Banku’s brand is good or not. He’s just doing what he has to do and I’m not in the position to decide for him. Basically, he has to do what he has to because it’s his own life and career.”


Delay Ruined My Music Brand – Mzbel

mzbel2

Mzbel, Ghanaian songstress, has expressed her utmost disappointment in Delay on the GHOne TV’S RythmzLive show hosted by Berla Mundi. To her, she gets disappointed anytime she sees Delay.

If you could remember, the alleged amorous relationship between Mzbel and Prince Kofi Amoabeng, former UT Bank boss was confirmed by the former via an interview on the DELAY Show.

According to the songstress, during the interview on the Delay Show and the host, Deloris Frimpong Manso aka Delay asked a sarcastic question about her amorous relationship with Prince Kofi Amoabeng whereas she also answered sarcastically.

“Delay asked a sarcastically question about my relationship with Kofi Amoabeng and I also gave a sarcastically answer to her.”However, right after her response to the question, she immediately told Delay that her relationship with Kofi Amoabeng was just normal as they usually hung out or go out.

“I, however, explained to her right after my earlier sarcastic answer that the relationship existing between Amoabeng and myself was just a normal one where we just hang out.”

Her disappointment came in when Delay decided to edit and take off certain parts of her answers and only dwell on the sarcastic side even to the extent of using it as advert. Mzbel told Berla Mundi that she and her manager approached Delay about it but nothing positive came out.

“My manager and I approached Delay and drew her attention on how she (Delay) edited the interview and it’s affecting her brand but delay seemed unconcern. Delay is only interested using that part to promote and sell her show”, Mzbel stated.

Well, it seems Mzbel is not the first person to express his outmost disappointment in Delay pertaining to how she edit interviews to satisfy her parochial interest. Not long ago, Joyce Blessing, a gospel musician, had a bone of contention with Delay for similar claims.

Akosua Agyapong in court for conspiracy in defrauding a man of Gh105,000

Akosua-Agyapong

Highlife musician turned gospel singer, Akosua Agyapong, has been hauled before the Accra Circuit Court, for allegedly conspiring with another person to defraud a businessman of Gh105,000.

According to GraphicOnline.com, the prosecution claims the musician and a man identified as Frank Agyemang ( alias Killer Boss) sold a land which apparently did not belong to them to the businessman.

The two have been charged with conspiracy to commit crime and fraudulent transaction of land. At Tuesday’s hearing, Agyemang, pleaded not guilty to the charges and was granted bail in the sum of Gh?160, 000 with three sureties with one to be justified.

The musician was, however, not present in the courtroom. Her legal representatives submitted a medical report which indicated that she was sick.

The hearing continues at the court, presided over by Mrs Cecilia Dapaa Mireku, on October 24, 2017.

The prosecutor, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP), Ms Agnes Boafo, said the complainant in the case was a car merchant while Agyemang claimed to be a building contractor.

She explained that in February 2017, the businessman wanted a parcel of land by the roadside to display his cars for sale. As a result, he contacted Akosua Agyapong for assistance.

The musician, the prosecutor said, told the businessman that she had a plot of land for rent, but the businessman wanted an outright sale.

“Later Akosua introduced Agyemang to the businessman as her brother who had a one plot of land opposite the West Hills Mall for sale. The businessman after inspecting the land showed interest,’’ she said.

ASP Boafo added that the highlife maestro assured the businessman that the land was genuine and Agyemang was the rightful owner.

“They then took the businessman to the Lands Commission, went into one of the offices and came out with someone who confirmed that the land indeed belonged to Agyemang, and upon this, the businessman became convinced,’’ she said.

Afterwards, the prosecutor said, the businessman paid Gh105,000 for the land and later gave a Toyota RAV 4 vehicle valued at Gh100,000 to Agyemang for another plot of land.

“When the businessman went to work on the land, another person came to claim ownership of the land with original documents. He reported the matter to the police leading to Akosua and Agyemang’s arrest. Agyemang, however, released the vehicle to the police,’’ the prosecutor added.

Stop Calling Yourself Shatta Wale’s Wife-Lutterodt Hits At Michy

XGltYWdlc1xjb250ZW50XDYzMDIwMTYyMzczNV9zaGF0dGFfbWljaHkuanBnfDMwMHwxODB8OS8xNC8yMDE3

“Stop calling yourself wife of a man you just have a baby with because you are not yet his wife but a mere baby mama.”

The above statement was a harsh advice from controversial counselor, Rev. George Lutterodt, the man of God who has opinion on everything topical, to the mother of Shatta Wale’s son, Majesty.

Counselor Lutterodt, is not happy the mother of one keeps referring to herself as wife of self-acclaimed dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale, when the so called husband, has not paid her bride price.

According to him, it is inappropriate for Diamond Michelle Gbagonah aka Shatta Michy, to parade herself as though she was married to the artiste real name, Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jnr.

Speaking on celebrity marriage breakups on “The Pundits” show hosted by George Quaye on GhOne recently, the Man of God said, he feels uncomfortable whenever Michy, addresses or is referred to as such especially when the man she calls her husband, says he will marry at old age.

He therefore called on the “Cocoa Brown” actress, to desist from that wishful thinking.

Shatta Wale is on record to have said he will marry, when he is old to avoid frivolous expenditure on what he described as ‘unnecessary things’.

The artiste holds the view that, when one marries at younger age; it subjects the marriage into “chilling and clubbing” and also “cheating”.

Shatta is reported to have said, “I will get married when I am very old, because, at that age, my wife would not be able to cheat on me. She won’t be able to also go clubbing.”

Basing his argument on the utterances of the artiste, Counselor Lutterodt forcefully posited “The pain is that Shatta Michy should stop calling herself a wife so that her soul will rest in peace. You can have ex-wife; ex-husband but you can’t have ex-children.”

“Shatta wale went on air and said he was not going to marry now but will do so after 60 years. Shatta Michy comes to speak like she’s a wife while she’s a baby mama, you see the difference here? Then the man comes out and tells us that, he will marry at age sixty so what are you in that house?”

He went on “And when you say (referring to the host) people are hiding things in secret, you can be keeping things and be saying it’s my privacy, it’s my privacy, but those who are learning from you, those who are seeing you as a role model, they are learning something that one day, when it comes out, they will feel hurt.

Because for me, naturally, for that statement to have come from Shatta Wale, until he pays her bride price, like bull dog just said they are not married”.

Counselor Lutterodt was on the show with Sally and artiste manager, Lawrence Asiamah Hanson, alias Bull Dog.

Police Hunt for Leakers of Afia Schwarzenegger’s Sex Video

Officials of the Ghana Police Service are working behind the scenes to get persons involved in the leakage and circulation of alleged sex tape of Afia Schwarzenegger arrested, NEWS-ONE has gathered.

The controversial radio and TV personality has been trending on some media circles and online platforms since Wednesday, following the leakage of the alleged sex tape in which she was caught with another man.

The alleged sex tape was reportedly recorded by her husband, Mr Lawrence Abrokwah, who caught her and the other man in bed.

Circulation of nudity is unlawful in Ghana. So far, no one has been arrested over the leakage though fingers are being pointed at Afia’s husband who has already been interrogated by the police.

As of Thursday night, no media house had published the said sex video, as what are in the public domain are just snapshot photos collaged into a video with background voices of Afia and her husband confronting each other.

In that video, Afia Schwarzenegger is seen wearing a headscarf and clad in a white towel trying to shield her private parts from the preying lenses of the camera. The accompanying audio captured Afia admitting to borrowing money for her wedding.

She is heard screaming and wailing while her ‘husband’ quizzes, “Is that how you are?”

Mr Abrokwah quizzes her further whether he married her to be engaged in infidelity.

Then the actress went ahead to disclose that she borrowed money to organise their wedding.

Other snapshots in circulation captured the man who was caught in the act with Afia.

The shots show the man covering his nakedness with a blanket, probably shying away from the camera. The man whose name is not readily known allegedly fled from the room in only a pair of black boxer shorts. He is believed to be in his early 40s.

According to reports, Afia’s husband said he has been suspecting the extra marital sexual escapades of his wife until he caught her red-handed with the said man.

When Lawrence Abrokwah walked into the room, both were naked and under a green blanket with some multi-coloured strips, the report said.

The outspoken Afia Schwarzenegger is yet to speak on the trending matter but she left a social media post saying she is now single, and suggesting that Mr Abrokwah is a gold digger.

She wrote, “I am single…ready to date your father! Nice breast, nice ass, not for broke men…Massa get a job, and take ur eyes off my money.”

On Thursday, Kwaku Bonsam jumped into the controversy by recording a Facebook video to curse the person or persons who leaked the videos of Afia’s brouhaha and that of Rashida Black Beauty.

Ghanaian lawyer, Maurice Ampaw says former President of Ghana, John  Dramani Mahama indirectly paid for Afia Schwarzenegger’s house.

Valentina Agyeiwaa sold an SUV car which was gifted to her by Ex-president to acquire a house but the money wasn’t up to the price of the house.

Speaking to the media today, September 8, 2017,  he said his client and ex-husband of Afia added an undisclosed amount before she could secure the house. The once adorable couple thus are co-owners of the house.

mahama

He admits all documents of the house bear the name of Afia Schwarzenegger, but said claims she is the sole owner of the property are untrue and leaves much to be desired

“The documents covering the house is in Afia’s name, the husband topped up the proceeds from the sale of an SUV car President Mahama gave her so it is not true she alone bought that house”, he alleged.

He also revealed how he made attempts to settle the impasse between the couple which resulted in Afia Schwarzenegger parading the neighborhood naked and hurling insults at them with threats she was going to curse anyone who tried calling for a truce.

According to him, ever since the misunderstanding ensued between them, Afia threatened to jail the husband for taking video of her nudity indicating that it is obvious that Afia married the guy because of his good looks.

On whether both are divorced, he said: “There is nothing like separation of marriage in our laws. What Afia did can’t be justified in any way”.

Speaking to the media, Maurice Ampaw stated that “I’m the lawyer for the man because I don’t support women who cheat on their husband.


Funny Face recounts how his ex-wife cheated on him!!!!!

XGltYWdlc1xjb250ZW50XDk4MjAxNzYwNjEyX2Z1bm55ZmEuanBnfDc3MHw0MDB8OS85LzIwMTc=

I grew up in a typical ‘conservatist’ Ghanaian society where the man is not expected to cry when he is in pain.

“Barima nsu,” they say.
In fact, even with both sexes, when someone has lost a loved one, property or has gone through any unpleasant situation, and they shed tears, they are asked not to cry.

However, research shows that crying when in pain makes one more relieved of whatever emotions they are engulfed in.

So any time you feel like crying, cry!
This is exactly what Funny Face seemed to have done recently [not literally] – an act that has caused him to apologise to Ghanaians.

This Is Why Funny Face Needs A Counsellor

About a week ago, an issue concerning Funny Face’s failed marriage which was rife in the media circles after their divorce in 2016, got re-ignited on Neat FM.

Ghanaian comedian, Funny Face, told Kwasi Aboagye in an interview that his ex-wife Elizabeth Ntim, whom she married in 2014 cheated on him about 36 times.

This became topic issue in the entertainment arena and people started expressing divergent opinions about the matter.

Funny Face had said he did not take time to know his ex-wife Elizabeth Ntim; he was infatuated by the woman’s voluptuous body and decided to marry her.

The Insults
Since the issue broke, I have heard a lot of people insult Funny Face and the wife. While some are chastising Funny Face for ‘stupidly’ getting married to physical attributes and not character, others have also gone on the ‘women-are-wicked’ mantra, calling the woman names.

The ‘spoof’ story
There was a story that reported that Elizabeth, Funny Face’s ex-wife had replied Funny Face’s rants by saying he was suffering from premature ejaculation and that he could only last for 2 minutes in bed.

The story suggested that the woman sought sexual gratification from other men because of Funny Face’s supposed weak performance in bed.

Many people fell for the ‘false’ news story and as usual, started passing funny comments. Even Funny Face responded to it in jest asking people to bring their sisters to try if truly he is a 2 minutes man.

Meanwhile, Citi Showbiz’s checks show that Elizabeth had not granted interview to any media network for that story and had not made that statement.

Funny Face apologises
Later, Funny Face took to Facebook to register an apology to his fans and the public for talking about the matter the manner he did. He believed he had overreacted and need to apologise.

For a long time, Funny Face had been tight-lipped on the details of the matter even when there were rumours of the supposed cheating by her ex-wife.

So what caused him to talk this time? Maybe Kwasi Aboagye deployed his wiles in ‘cowing’ him into answering his questions.

However prudent one may have seen his apology, I believe that it does nothing to the ordinary fan. I don’t care about whether he apologised or not. What matters most was for him to apologised to himself or his ex-wife for washing their dirty linen in public.

I am sure, if the woman should also speak, there are allegations she may level against Funny Face which will blow the minds of most people insulting her.

He needs a counsellor
Not all the people we see moving around hale and hearty are happy. I believe that Funny Face may be emotionally and psychologically traumatised now.

He needs someone whose expert counselling would salve the pain in him. I don’t know if he has one already but if he doesn’t he should get a professional one. One who would understand his condition and give him better counsel – not one who will insult him and make him feel like committing suicide.

Conclusions
Funny Face’s issue is one of the smallest of the many marital problems a lot of people are going through.

People have problems. Problems ‘dey’!
