Ghanaian nominee for Viewers’ Choice' Best New International Act 2018 BET Awards, Kwesi Arthur has spoken for the first time after the awards show which was held last night in Los Angeles.
The ‘Grind Day’ hit maker who lost out to South African Hip-Hop artist Sjava in a tweet disclosed the loss doesn’t really mean anything especially as he came from nothing.
“How can I lose when I came from nothing”, Kwesi Arthur tweeted.
Kwesi Arthur had his breakthrough in Ghana music industry when he collaborated with Sarkodie and Medikal to remake ‘Grind Day’ song.
SarkCess Music’s Sarkodie has weighed in on the ongoing fracas between ‘Angela’ hitmaker Kuami Eugene and ‘One Corner’ star, Patapaa.
This comes after Kuame Eugene in an interview indicated that he will never collaborate with the ‘One Corner‘ hitmaker because he produces noise as music.
According to the Lynx Entertainment signee, Patapaa is only a noise maker adding that there will never be any music from the two of them together.
The VMGA highlife Artiste of The Year said he turned Patapaa down when he requested for a joint work.
“Patapaa said he needs me on a song, he’s calling me for a feature and said I no, because I’m not ready”.
Asked if Ghanaians would have to wait for a collaboration from them in the future, he answered: “People shouldn’t wait. It’s never going to happen, Patapaa’s kind of songs are not me, he makes too much noise”.
The comment which did not go down well with the ‘Akwaaba’ hitmaker attracted an instant diss song in reply of Kuami Eugene.
Reacting to the frenzy on social media after a user stated that the media was responsible for most of the beefs, Sarkodie tweeted;
“99% of the Time … Kuami it will happen over and over again so just prep yourself… We live we learn ...”
Award winning Ghanaian rapper, Kwesi Arthur lost out to South African music icon Sjava at 2018 edition of Black Entertainment Awards (BET Awards) Viewers’ Choice Best New International Act category.
Ghana’s Sarkodie and Stonebwoy who previously won the prestigious award as 2012 and 2015 Best International Act Africa winners respectively couldn’t get any nomination this year but the Tema based Ghanaian rapper made it but unfortunately couldn’t sweep the prestigious award.
The BET Awards was held today, June, 24 in Los Angeles, USA.
Actress Yvonne Nelson has revealed in an interview that all efforts to have a one on one chat with the first gentleman of the land President Akuffo Addo has proved futile due to the people who are the president.
According to Yvonne Nelson, some NPP bigwigs in masks have made it impossible for her to book an appointment with the president.
“I am a Ghanaian. I love the NDC and NPP. I have been trying to meet the president and I guess the people around him are making it difficult. Yeah I wanted to address him but I guess when the time is right I will meet him”, said Yvonne.
On why she wants to meet the president, the actress stated that:
“I am not too happy but at the right time, I will address it. I mean the movie industry. Also tourism, government, stuff about Ghana that I need to address. Maybe now they don’t take us seriously but they would”.
She continued that;
“We want to promote the tourism sector but the road networks are bad. I was on my way to Kakum National Park and I nearly returned so why would a tourist go through that. There are things that need to be addressed so when the time is right some of us will come up.
“We are entertainers they don’t believe us but when the time comes they will know”.
Ghanaian singer, Mzbel says the entertainment industry has been too lucrative for her to go broke in life.
According to her, she has made lots of positive investments to secure her future hence she doesn’t see herself struggling for money.
Mzbel noted that she wouldn’t describe herself as a very rich person but she’s got enough to live a comfortable life as an entertainer.
She told Andy Dosty on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM on Monday, that “I am okay when it comes to money. I am not rich but okay and I don’t think I will ever go broke…” she said.
Mzbel is currently promoting her song dubbed “Tongues”.
Kumi Guitar has in recent interview with Deloris Frimpong Manso on ‘The Delay’ show stated that he started Zylofon Music with Nana Appiah Mensah.
According to Kumi Guitar, CEO of Zylofon Media, Nana Appiah Mensah was his classmate at Adisadel College although they were not that close pals then.
“I won’t say we were that kind of friends who’ll break bread together but we were very cool.”
Kumi said after two months of leaving Slip Music which belongs to Mark Okraku Mantey, Nana Appiah of Zylofon Media called him over to his office and that was when their bound rejuvenated.
He goes on to say that even though they had lost each other’s contacts for a very long time, Nana Appiah being well aware of his singing dexterity at school was not skeptical about investing in him.
“I was the first artiste he signed on Zylofon Music before bringing on board other artiste to form a formidable music label. NANA Appiah knows I have a keen interest in music. I was best known for dancing and singing in high school so he had every reason to put me on.”
More importantly, he revealed that there’s no feud or whatsoever between him and Stonebwoy as well as the remaining signed artistes under Zylofon Music.
