Too Many Fake Stories – Samini’s Camp Responds To Story About Mzbel


In the said story, Samini was quoted as saying that, “Who is Mzbel? How long has she been doing music and what impact has she made? After ‘16 years’, she could’ve been one of the greatest female musicians from Ghana, but she let drugs and laziness get in her way. Her opinion does not matter to me really.”

The camp of Ghanaian Dancehall artiste, Samini has rubbished a story captioned “Samini Replies Mzbel” which is on most Ghanaian entertainment blogs.

But the handlers of the artiste denied ever replying Mzbel after she had said that, she prefers Samini’s fiercest rival during a televisioninterview.

A rejoinder signed by Anthony Daning of HighGradeFamily-SaminiMusic, copied to GhanaGist.Com said that, the story is a mere fabrication.

They ended by saying that, “We advice the originators of the Story to clarify the said story and adhere to Responsible Journalism. Crass Journalism is not what Ghana needs now. All other carriers of the Story in Question are herein adviced!

Below is the statement from Samini’s Camp unedited.


The said Story is fabricated. It is regrettable that a website like OMG Ghana or originator of the Story will publish such an untruth meant to deceive, slander and cause public disaffection.

The news website OMG Ghana or its originators acknowledge that the story is a satirical- spoof. This is regrettable when many artiste and industry players are calling for ethical reportage and not hogwash.

The Statement “Who is Mzbel? How long has she been doing music and what impact has she made? After ‘16 years,’ she could’ve been one of the greatest female musicians from Ghana, but she let drugs and laziness get in her way. Her opinion does not matter to me really.” IS TOTALLY FALSE AND FABRICATED.

Samini is currently in the UK performing, and doing what He does Best, entertaining the masses and inspiring them as always. Samini is a Gentleman and always will be. And particularly has no issues whatsoever with MzBel.

We advice the originators of the Story to clarify the said story and adhere to Responsible Journalism. Crass Journalism is not what Ghana needs now. All other carriers of the Story in Question are herein adviced!

Lil Wayne Named “Songwriter Of The Year” At 2014 BMI R&B/Hip-Hop Awards


Lil Wayne was honored with the “Songwriter Of The Year” prize last night at the 2014 Broadcast Music, Inc. R&B/Hip-Hop Awards, which took place at the Pantages Theatre in Los Angeles, California.

Congratulations to Tunechi!

Wizkid, Under Attack For Not Using Dark Girls In His New Video



Yes, it appears Africans are getting fed up with the glorification of ‘light skins’, which had caused many of our people to turn to bleaching and toning.

In Ghana, Yvonne Nelson is often ridiculed and accused on social media for lightening her skin. We even have the likes of Ama K. Abebrese, Nana Ama McBrown and others starting an intense campaign against skin bleaching and toning.

A similar campaign has been started in Nigeria with some big names supporting it. It is not surprising therefore that Wizkid received a lot of bashing when he posted images from his new video shoot in Miami on Instagram:

Star Boy is currently in Miami, Florida to shoot a new music video. The 24-year-old star posted photos and video clips on his official Instagram page and his followers are going in on him for not featuring dark skinned girls but Latino ladies.

In July, Nollywood starlet Beverly Naya wrote an inspiring article for BN on loving your skin. That was the first step in the campaign. #FiftyShadesOfBlack.

The campaign is created to inspire not only women but as many young black girls as possible because they deserve to have a chance of realizing and cherishing their beauty before someone leads them to believe otherwise.

Beverly brought some of the fresh and leading ladies in the entertainment industry music, beauty, fashion and acting to help take part in the inspiring campaign.

Kessben was arrested due to sheer jealousy – Ken Agyapong


   Kennedy Agyapong

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central in the Central Region, Kennedy Agyapong, has objected to the arrest of Kumasi-based business mogul, Kwabena Kesse, otherwise known as Kessben.

He stated that it was unfair and improper for the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) to arrest the hard working businessman at the Kotoka International Airport in the presence of his wife and children upon his arrival.

The outspoken MP insisted that Mr Kesse is a decent businessman who by dint of hard work over the decades has been able to set up numerous organisations which provide employment for a chunk of the population.

He stated that Mr Kesse’s arrest was not right, stressing that the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Kessben Group of Companies had become a target of jealousy, hence his shameful arrest by the BNI.

“Kessben was arrested due to sheer jealousy,” Mr Agyapong claimed on Hello FM, stating that the Kessben FM and Kessben TV owner is a genuine businessman who is being punished wrongly.

He said if the President Mahama’s administration is seriously looking for thieves to arrest and deal with, then, it should not go further since there are a bunch of thieves very close to the President.

According to him, there are several people surrounding the President who have dug their hands in state funds “so the President should chase them with the BNI and retrieve those monies.”

Mr Agyapong also lambasted the President for failing to manage the country properly.

Lil Wayne Responds to HIV Rumors: ‘Stop Playing With Me’



Earlier this week reports circulated claiming that Lil Wayne was planning to announce his HIV positive status to the public.

A photo of Nicki Minaj allegedly “visiting Weezy in hospital” fueled the rumors on social media and fans quickly responded with hashtags including #PrayForWeezy.

It was reported that Wayne, 31, had contracted the disease from a stripper.

The Grammy award-winning rapper has now taken to Twitter to clear up the false claims, in a an expletive-filled tweet which was deleted shortly after being posted.


Lil Wayne responds to rumors on Twitter


This is not the first time the rapper has been targeted with rumors – earlier this year a RIP Lil Wayne hoax went viral after a series of posts claimed the Lollipop hit maker had passed away after a series of epileptic seizures.

Media reports also claimed the Young Money rapper’s long-term addiction to Sizzurp – aconcoction of cough medicine and alcohol – contributed to the seizure.

Birdman, who is the CEO of Wayne’s label Cash Money, refuted claims the star was hospitalized for drugs use.

In an interview with TMZ he said: “It had nothing to do with drugs, no such thing like that.

“It was a result of dehydration and exhaustion, it’s just his work ethic and how hard he works, how much dedication he gives to music and his fans, and what he’s trying to accomplish in life.”

Lil Wayne will be co-headlining a tour with Drake next month and is working on his 12th studio album” Tha Carter V”  for release this year.
