Some Female Gospel Musicians Abuse Alcohol – Akosua Adjepong Alleges
Veteran musician, Akosua Adjepong, has alleged that some gospel musicians in Ghana drink alcohol.
The musician made the startling allegation in an interview with Dr Pounds on Hitz Gallery on Hitz FM.
According to Akosua Adjepong, she has seen some female gospel musicians drink alcohol before they perform on stage.
The ‘Frema’ hit singer was asked to give an advice to people in the showbiz industry when she dropped the bombshell.
The veteran musician started by sharing an experience she had some years ago when a bandleader she was working with at the time tried to give her alcohol to help her get rid of shyness when she gets on stage.
She said she turned down the offer by the band leader.
“Some of our gospel musicians drink alcohol before they get on stage and it is very heartbreaking,” she said.
Akosua Adjepong refused to mention names but went ahead to advise musicians, actors and people in the industry to be good role models to the younger generation.
“Some people don’t really pay attention when the sermon is being preached; some even sleep but immediately get up when they start singing gospel songs. People actually pay heed to the words of Gospel song so I’m begging our gospel musicians to change,” she urged.
She pleaded with people who take in alcohol before performances to put an end to it and change their ways this New Year.
President Donald Trump Just Forget the Words to the National Anthem
President Donald Trump suffered the first fumble of the night when he appeared to momentarily forget the national anthem.
Trump attended Monday evening’s College Football Playoff National Championship in Atlanta, where he was joined by country music group Zac Brown Band and a gospel choir to lead the anthem.
But when the camera panned to POTUS—a hand over his heart and American flag pinned to his lapel—some social media users pointed out that Trump seemed to have either flubbed the lyrics and made a messy recovery, or had forgotten the national anthem all together.
“It looked like Donald Trump just kept repeating ‘applesauce’ during the National Anthem,” one Twitter user wrote. Another added, “Trump was mouthing some words during parts of the national anthem, but it was unclear what he was saying. He didn’t open mouth during other parts.
Earlier today, Trump mentioned the national anthem and its importance during a speech in Nashville. “We want our flag respected,” the former reality TV star said, perThe Washington Post, “and we want our national anthem respected also.”
This isn’t the first time Trump’s views on the national anthem have courted controversy. He’s an outspoken critic of the NFL for allowing its players to kneel during the anthem in protest of racial injustice.
Trump tweeted in September, “If a player wants the privilege of making millions of dollars in the NFL,or other leagues, he or she should not be allowed to disrespect…….our Great American Flag (or Country) and should stand for the National Anthem. If not, YOU’RE FIRED. Find something else to do!”
