GHAMRO: You must step down as Chairman – OAP Romeo tells Kojo Antwi

Published

on

Popular Radio Presenter, Nana Romeo, has urged Chairman of the Ghana Music Rights Organization, GHAMRO, Kojo Antwi, to step down to save his image.

The Accra FM On Air Personality, OAP, said things are currently not going well with members of GHAMRO.

Recall that GHAMRO, under Chairman Kojo Antwi, had recently come under criticism after Ghanaian music legend, Randy Nunoo said his administration had failed musicians and had not been accountable.

Also, Ghanaian high life musician, Abirekyieba Kofi Sammy, had declared war on Antwi, saying ‘he is a thief and God will punish him.’

In a chat with Zionfelix, Romeo said the recent complain about GHAMRO’s mismanagement by its members does not speak well of the musician’s high-earned reputation.

He pleaded with Kojo Antwi to do the honourable thing by stepping down as chairman of the organisation to save his image.

Romeo said, “I remember very well that Kojo Antwi released his first album in the 1980s and since then, he has been respected by many people in Africa, Europe, America and other parts of the world. You will hardly hear anything bad about the musician which will give you room to insult him.

“You will only hear about Kojo Antwi when he is about to release an album or a song, so it is very difficult for people to talk to him anyhow.

“Not long ago, we heard that he has joined GHAMRO and truth be told, things were going on well when he started but things are not going on well as the members expected.

“This has given room for young guys Kojo Antwi can call his grandsons and daughters to talk to him anyhow; something I think does not augur well.

“People are just tarnishing the image Kojo Antwi has built over the years. My humble appeal to Kojo Antwi is to step down as GHAMRO chairman for someone to takeover.

“He should protect the living legend status he has gained for these past years. We can’t sit to look at some people insult him just like that because of GHAMRO affairs.

“He’s lived a better life these past years to gain many assets he wants for his life and children, so what kind of money is at GHAMRO that will make him allow some people to just insult him,” Romeo added.

I have always been a bad girl – Ebony

Published

on

Dancehall musician, Priscilla Opoku Kwarteng popularly known as Ebony, has revealed that she has always been a bad girl long before she ventured into the music industry.

Ebony, who said she loves her bad girl nature, also debunked insinuations that her scanty dress sense was her own way of attracting attention to herself in an interview with Showbiz on Monday, adding that she has always worn skimpy and revealing clothes.

“The bad girl brand people see out there is a true representation of me. This is how I have been even before coming into the limelight.

“I don’t pretend to be who I am not. I am a very bad girl and there is nothing anyone can do about it. And I am proud to say it. I have nine piercings and a lot of tattoos all over my body and this is how I want to live my life,” she said.

She also has a word for those who may want to love her: “Love me for who I am because the whole Ebony brand comes with the package. How I dress, my tattoos, my hair and my colour comes with the Ebony brand and I want Ghanaians to accept that.”

On reports that she was sent out of the Passport Office recently because of her dressing, Ebony said the incident was absurd because their is nothing like a dress code for the passport office.

“I chose not to talk about it but I was very angry because there were ladies there with more revealing outfits but they were not asked to leave.”

Recovered State Vehicle: John Dumelo faces car theft charges

Published

on

The Supervisor of the Task Force on the Retrieval of State Vehicles, Kwame Baffoe, has revealed that the Bureau of National Investigations, BNI and the Criminal Investigations Department, CID, of the Ghana Police Service are preparing charges bothering on car theft against star actor, John Dumelo.

“The CID, the BNI are holding a docket on that and at the appropriate time, he will be arraigned before court and he should be charged for theft because this is a criminal offence.

“Very soon Ghanaians should expect Mr Dumelo to be prosecuted for allegedly stealing state cars.

“He should be charged for theft because this is criminal”, Baffoe said.

It would be recalled that Dumelo has been in the news since it became public knowledge that a Toyota Land Cruiser V8 belonging to the state was found in his possession.

“We approached him at the fitting shop, somebody alerted us, and then we went to the owner of the fitting shop and he [mechanic] admitted that indeed, John Dumelo brought the vehicle for remodeling.

“Then we approached John Dumelo, the chassis number and everything clearly show that the Government of Ghana is the importer of the vehicle in question. Then we called Dumelo [and asked him] who gave the vehicle to him, he mentioned the former First Lady’s name and then I said whether it has been transferred in his name or not we need the documents because there are so many vehicles that have been sold out and, if, indeed, it formed part of the vehicles that have been sold out, he should give us the documents.

“And he said he had no documents covering the vehicle and it had not been sold, it was given to him by the former First Lady. We are having all the documents concerning the car in question,” Mr Baffoe said in an interview with Joy FM.

UK envoy mocks John Dumelo over recovered state vehicle

Published

on

UK High Commissioner to Ghana, Jon Benjamin, has indirectly thrown darts at legendary actor, John Dumelo, after he was accused of being in possession of a missing vehicle belonging to the State.

Recall that news made the rounds last week that Dumelo was nabbed by National Security operatives with the vehicle, a Toyota Land Cruiser V8 said to be one of the 200 vehicles the presidency says are missing.

The vehicle, with chassis number JTMHVOJ2F4159829, 2015 model with full option, had been parked at the Office of the President Annex for almost one month.

Checks by the operatives indicated that the vehicle had been dismantled and was going through re-modeling, including re-spraying – with parts allegedly imported from Dubai.

According to reports, upon questioning, Dumelo initially said that the former First Lady, Lordina Mahama, gave him the vehicle.

In a swift twist, he reportedly made a U-turn, saying that he bought it himself.

However, a look at the car’s chasis number (VIN number) is said to have given him away.

Meanwhile, the actor turned down efforts to get his reaction.

When he was reached via telephone for his comments, he kept sealed lips.

John Dumelo told Daily Guide, “I wouldn’t like to comment about it.” .

While the dust raised by the allegation is yet to settle, tweets from UK High Commissioner to Ghana could pass as an innuendo and indirect mockery.

On his Twitter handle @JonBenjamin19, he wrote: “Off to a baby naming ceremony in Tema at my good friends’ Golda Addo.

“I’m in a non-V8 car which hasn’t been spray-painted.”
