I was booked for more shows than any other Ghanaian artiste in 2017 – Yaa Pono

Bragging is strictly a hip-life culture so we can understand where Yaa Pono is coming from; boasting that no Ghanaian musician can match him in terms of the number of shows played in the year 2017.

The Tema-based rapper, in an interview with Showbiz927 host Kenneth Addo on 3FM 92.7, said he was booked for almost 300 shows with his popular Gbee Naabu song last year and that obviously makes him stand out.

The Amen hitmaker also shared his thoughts on the forthcoming Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, saying that he’s not bothered by the fact that he was not nominated under the VGMA best rapper category.

He stated that the situation will rather challenged to push harder and come out with songs that Ghanaians will jam onto them.

Yaa Pono believes that his Faster Than Gods will win Best Album of the Year together with the Best Rapper of the Year next year.

Poverty Is No More My Friend – Shatta Wale

Ghana’s Dancehall King, Shatta Wale has said he is no more friends with poverty.

According to him, he is the richest Ghanaian musician and that cannot be taken away from him.

Shatta Wale made this known when he was talking to Accra-based radio station Peace Fm on whether or not he bought the house he flaunted on social media house or it is a rented apartment.

The Dancehall artiste who has in the past told Ghanaians that he has acquired a one million dollar mansion indicated that Ghanaians can believe whatever they want because he’s grown past the stage where he has to be explaining and providing evidence for his own properties.

“You know why I started customising my number plate? It was because people who are not business minded were always saying I cannot buy the cars I use so I had to brand them in order for them to know that they are mine. But for now, I don’t have a problem because I don’t associate with people without business mentality. I’m no more friends with poverty and people who think that I can’t acquire any property are driven by poverty.”

I never prophesied or gave directions when I was a Pastor – Ofori Amponsah

Highlife artiste, Ofori Amponsah has said in his short stint as a lay Pastor, he did not Prophesy neither did he give directions to his congregants.

“I never gave directions to the people in my church, I never did that and I will never do that,” he told Deloris Frimpong Manso on the Delay show.

The one-time Man of God indicated that he was not an ordained Pastor. According to him, although he was called by God, he was not ordained to do the work of God so he cannot classify himself as a Pastor.

Ofori Amponsah indicated that he established a fellowship where he had people coming to pray but was quick to add that he did not do that because he was hungry and needed money but because he was called by God; signs he had from the fact that he could not write songs anymore and suffered a divorce that destroyed him for sometime.

The highlife artiste acknowledged that although he was called by God, the move to establish a fellowship where people with problems came to pray was rushed.

Ofori Amponsah used the opportunity to ask for forgiveness to people who were misled by his actions and his fans who lost hope in him when he left music in the past.
