GHANA/ Sadiq Fires Ghanaian Musicians



Chief Executive Officer of 3Music Awards, Sadiq Abdullai Abu has admonished Ghanaian musicians to also concentrate on how structures of the music industry works rather than seeking personal glory with their brands and careers.

“Most importantly we need to begin to drive the industry from a certain insightful conversation..It is a 360 industry”. He said on Daybreak Hitz on October 20, 2020.

He also revealed that although there may be a finger pick of Ghanaian musicians doing well with their respective careers, it’s not enough and does not represent the true reflection of how our music industry should be.

“Talents always get to think that…. them them.. when this part begin to hit small hit it, hit it and then they wake up to realize that all these things that should be in the echo system to support us is not there and they begin to shout there is no structure in the industry”.

The event organizer who has got a strong connection to the Ghanaian entertainment pipeline further stated that “when people were building the structures, you were looking to your own gain and then when you wake up and realize that there are other things in the echo system to support the growth that you’ve become, you begin to decry about it”.

Elucidating on what he meant by lack of structures in the industry, Sadiq said “structures includes these various different companies in the value chain..not just talent.. If we run our industry on talent alone we wake up to realize that all these things that should be there to power them or continue to keep them at the top is not there”.

For some time now, musicians have themselves tried to organize their own events but most were a total fiasco “so it forces them to begin to want to do it themselves and it creates problems”.

50 Cent Endorses Donald Trump Ahead Of Presidential Election



50 Cent is officially the latest celebrity to hop aboard the Trump 2020 train ahead of the presidential election next month.

The rapper shared a screenshot of an infographic from the CNBC show Power Lunch on his Instagram account on Monday displaying the top tax rates by state under Joe Biden’s suggested tax plan. If the Democratic presidential nominee’s plan were to be put into effect, those making over $400,000 a year would pay 62.6% in taxes in California, 62% in New York City, 60% in New Jersey, and 58% in New York state.

50 Cent had a strong reaction to those numbers, writing on social media, “WHAT THE FUCK! (VOTE For TRUMP) IM OUT, FUCK NEW YORK The KNICKS never win anyway.” He added, “I don’t care Trump doesn’t like black people 62% of you out of ya fucking mind,” seemingly conflating the percentage of NYC’s population that would have to pay those taxes with the tax rate a small segment of the population would actually pay.

But outrage over a rise in taxes applied exclusively to those who make over $400,000 a year isn’t exactly a rallying point for the masses. In 2018, the U.S. Census Bureau listed the annual median personal income at $33,706. In fact, earning $400,000 would easily put you in the top 1% of earners in almost every state. And if Biden’s tax plan were to be fully implemented with no alterations, over the next decade it would raise $1.6 to $1.9 trillion from corporations, $1.0 to $1.2 trillion from high earners through income tax, and $800 billion to $1 trillion from Social Security payroll taxes on high-wage earners, according to the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget.

This recent endorsement also seems to be an abrupt shift in political affiliation for 50 Cent, who in September 2016 tweeted, “Let us pray, lord please don’t let Trump into office. We will spin out of control.” He also claimed in a 2017 interview with Hot 97 that the Trump campaign offered to pay him $500,000 to help attract Black voters, but he turned it down.
