Your name alone can disqualify you from winning an award – Radio presenter jabs Patapaa

Radio presenter, Captain Smart has been making headlines for his commentaries on arts and entertainment related issues of late, abrantepa.com has taken notice.

From jumping to the defense of Moesha over her statement that she sleeps with a married man for her subsistence to hailing gospel musician, Bro Sammy for releasing the ‘Nnipafoo’ song, the Adom FM morning show host this time around says Patapaa’s name can disqualify him from winning an award.

“This Patapaa guy, when did he become Patapaa? Your name alone can disqualify you from winning an award. Why do you call yourself ‘Patapaa’? Patapaa means someone who refuses to regard sensible thoughts,” he said on Daybreak Hitz.

Captain Smart’s comment was on the heels of the controversy surrounding Fancy Gadam’s victory over Patapaa at this year’s Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs).

A furious Patapaa in an interview alleged that Charterhouse, organisers of the award scheme took “stupid money” from Fancy Gadam in exchange for the Song of the Year award, the reason ‘Total Cheat’ won over his ‘One Corner’ song.

In a sharp rebuttal, Fancy Gadam said he won because of the solid and loyal fan base he has. He labeled Patapaa as a joke, adding that he [Fancy] will never collaborate with the Swedru singer because he is not talented.

While a section of the public has jabbed Fancy Gadam for his comment, Captain Smart says the award-winning artiste did not err.

“When you level a serious allegation against a nominee who eventually won an award that he paid stupid money, what do you expect him to do or say?” he queried.

“There are some politicians I will never invite on my show [because] they are empty. When the producers invite them, I will leave and go home,” he said in defense to Fancy Gadam’s statement that he will never feature Patapaa on a song.

Patapaa’s ‘One Corner’ was adjudged Viral Song of the Year at the maiden edition of the 3 Music Awards held on March 24, 2018.

Dating One Man Is Risky, Handle 3-5 Simultaneously – Gospel Musician Esaaba Haizel Advises

You’ won’t believe this advise could come from a gospel musician who is supposed to know better but we all have opinions, don’t we?

Well, this US based-Ghanaian female gospel musician called Esaaba Haizel has revealed how she uses social media to advise young girls to date three to five men in order to assess them before selecting Mr. right. In the voice of Esaaba Haizel, there’s a huge advantage in having multiple partners without getting sexually involved.

Speaking to Austine Woode on kumasi-based Abusua FM, the budding singer indicated that dating one man is very risky because the man might break the woman’s heart by jilting her after heavily investing in the relationship.

Here’s what she said:

I advised young girls on my Facebook wall to have three to five men at the same time without having any sexual intercourse with them. You just have to be firm not to sleep with them. Having multiple partners will help you to study them, then you let the rest go, by choosing just one. Why waste your time to date only one person?.

I’m saying this because you can’t have it all. One of the men would be interested in your business, one would be concerned about the food you eat on daily basis thereby supply your needs, the other will be interested in the shoes, make ups, clothing you wear, the list goes on.

I’m a Christian, is there something wrong with my advise to young ladies who aspire to marry?, its a good advice your pastor cannot give you,’ she quizzed.

More importantly, Esaaba Haizel is currently promoting her gospel album christened ‘Nhyira‘ which translates into English as blessing. Regardless, her stance on criteria for selecting the right partner remains controversial. But then, there’s no harm in trying if you’re a damsel reading this. Give it a try hoping that it’ll work because it’s a tried and tested theory.
