2018 BET Awards Nominees Out And No Musician From Ghana Made It

The nominees list for the 2018 BET awards has been announced and surprisingly, we  did not spot the name of any musician from Ghana in it.
The only Ghanaian who made it to the list is 24-year-old rapper, Stormzy, a Ghanaian UK-based musician.

The English grime and hip-hop artist competes in the Best International Act category with Davido, Tiwa Savage, Fally Pupa, J Hus and many others.

BET merged this year’s Best International Act: Africa and U.K making the competition very keen. In the past years, Ghana has been represented by musicians like Sarkodie, Stonebwoy, MzVee, D-Black, and others so it comes as a surprise to many when none of our top musicians made it to this year’s award.

BET Award 2018 Best International Act nominees:

1. Booba (France)
2. Cassper Nyovest (SA)
3. Dadju (France)
4. Davido (Nigeria)
5. Distruction Boyz (SA)
6. Fally Ipupa (Dr. Congo)
7. J Hus (UK)
8. Niska (France)
9. Tiwa Savage (Nigeria)
10. Stefflon Don (UK)
11. Stormzy (UK)

Our  history tells that Sarkodie in 2012 picked the Best International Act, Africa award and was again nominated for the 2014 and 2015 editions of the event held in Los Angeles, USA. Tema-based music group, R2bees was nominated for the 2013 edition of the awards battling 2Face Idibia (Nigeria), Toya Delazy (South Africa), Radio and Weasel (Uganda), Ice Prince (Nigeria) and Donald (South Africa) for the year’s award.

Reggae and dancehall artiste Stonebwoy won the 2015 Best African Act Award at the BET and was again nominated for the 2017 edition of the event but lost it to Nigeria’s Wizkid. Lynx Entertainment signee, MzVee made history in 2016 as the first female Ghanaian musician to be nominated for the awards established in 2001 by the Black Entertainment Television network but could not bring the glory home.

Rapper D-Black before Sarkodie had a nod in the 2011 BET Awards when Chris Brown led the pack with 6 nominations followed closely by Lil Wayne with five of his own.

Video of Captain Smart’s Beautiful Mansion and Cars

He has been interdicted because of his utterances on air which the company described as were “designed to bring their business into disrepute.” [You can listen to those utterances that caused his interdiction here].

However, from a video and some photos we have  seen, Mr. Smart has a beautiful home in Tantra Hill, a suburb in Accra to be specific.

The radio presenter was celebrating his wife, Afia Pokua’s (mind you, she is not the Afia Pokua of the same Adom FM) birthday and the inside of his home caught our attention.

And now, below is the video which caught our attention in the first place – She was celebrating his wife’s birthday.

Sarkodie’s Daughter, Titi All Ready To Be A Barrister & Solicitor— More Photos

‘Train Up a child, the way he should go, so that when he grows, he will not depart from it’–Sarkodie certainly understands this quote in the Bible and has started training his daughter Titi the way she should go, so that when she grows, she becomes the kind of woman, her father wants her to be.

Sarkodie has shared new photos of his daughter Titi on IG all dressed up as a lawyer-an indication that Sarkodie wants her daughter to study law when she grows up, so she can manage the legal aspects of his business.

In the photos he shared, Titi looked cute in her ‘lawyer’ outfit but also had a very serious face on as though she understands the task ahead of her.

The ‘Highest’ rapper wrote when he posted the photos; “Madam Maame Adwoa Owusu Addo – Barrister and Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Ghana … Chambers – @cqlegal”

Doctor who forged Nayas’ fake pregnancy results arrested

A source close to the embattled Ghanaian Gospel artist, Ernest Opoku has confirmed to Eugene Baah of Happy FM that following the revelation that Gladys Mensah Boako aka Nayas is not pregnant, the police have arrested the doctor who forged the fake pregnancy results of the actress.

Nayas took to the media to reveal that Ernest Opoku has impregnated her and tried to bribe her to abort the pregnancy with GHS5000 and 15 pieces of GTP cloths. Failing to abort the child, Ernest Opoku has been avoiding her.

Ernest Opoku after days of denial finally confirmed that indeed he has dated the actress. Ghanaians were still debating the issue in the media when Nayas took a cane to the studios of Adom FM to bitterly lash the singer when he was performing Live worship in the FM station.

Well, the issue fast escalated after that and Ernest, as well as the Multimedia group, had Nayas arrested.

Ernest insisted Nayas takes another pregnancy test at a different hospital where it was later emerged after the test that she was not pregnant. In fact, the report went on to say Nayas has never been pregnant within the past 7 months.

This new development has shocked many people who can’t understand why a woman will formulate such lies just to disgrace a man who dumped her.

According to the source who spoke with Happy FM’s Eugene Baah, Nima Police has arrested the doctor who performed the first test and he is currently being questioned by the police.
