GREATER ACCRA, GHANA, Wednesday, April 1, 2020/www.gbafrica.net/ – Sarkodie has been hailed today for orchestrating a hit battle between Appietus and Jay Q. #behinddahit

The two managed to pull over 6,000 Ghanaians to their Instagram live battle and we had a lot of music stars also comment under the battle.

However, Legendary sound engineer, Zapp Mallet has blasted the award-winning rapper, Sarkodie for pairing him with some music producers.

Zapp stated, “There is something called respect which is lacking in Ghana today. For instance you don’t compare somebody who was churning out hits before you made Kindergarten with your mate who just started a couple of years back. Show some respect. You will also get there”

“Our Sector Needs Grants As Stimulus Packages, Not Loans – Nabil Alhassan – CEO, Events Factory

Published

GREATER ACCRA – Tuesday, May 26, 2020/www.gbafrica.net/ – For creatives and entrepreneurs pursuing artistic projects, sometimes the biggest challenge isn’t the creative process itself (although that certainly comes with its own set of challenges)—it’s securing the right entertainment business grants so you can get your project off the ground and share your work with your community.

Nabil Alhassan – Chief Executive Officer, Events Factory, has urged the government of Ghana under the auspices of President Akuffo-Addo to provide working capital as grants for small businesses in the arts/entertainment industry; including but not limited to: assisting in the release of commercial product, distribution and licensing services while maintaining transparency, ownership, and accountability through standard business practices.

In an interview with Franky 5 on “This Is Gospel Show” on Hitz 103.9FM, Nabil revealed that, through this grants package, the sector will aim at supporting the needs of small businesses in arts and entertainment by making financing more accessible, strengthening the arts and entertainment small business ability to compete, and recognizing the value of Intellectual Property as well as Research and Development as business assets.

Speaking on the issue of events, he stated that, despite the numerous talents in Ghana, the country’s creative sector can’t boast of a single annual indigenous music festival or a community event oriented towards live performances of singing and instrument playing that is often presented with a theme such as musical genre, nationality, locality of musicians, or holiday.

According to him, these festivals host other attractions such as food and merchandise vending, dance, crafts, performance art, and social or cultural activities that will enhance tourism in the country.

Nabil Alhassan – Chief Executive Officer, Events Factory advised all industry events organizers to unite now, come together to host one big event in the midst of this coronavirus propagate the good works of the creatives and industry at large, rather than staging these minor events that consume a lot of resources.

Established in 2006, Event Factory Ghana Limited is a Ghanaian owned Event Management Company. They are a professional events outfit specialized in providing one stop solutions to all your event management needs.

Published

on

When the show premiered its first season in 2017, we didn’t know what to expect but a successful second season in 2018 showcasing a younger, fresher cast line up kept us coming back for more. The first and only reality series about Nigerians in the United States? Sign us up!

Now, the new season of Real Naija Ladies of Dallas is so crazy, Jennifer doesn’t even know where to start.

The Sassy, Bougie and Nasty Naija squad is back for the most intense season ever on Friday, June 5th at 7/6c on YouTube. Get ready to reunite with old friends, meet new faces, and see if your favorites are still making you proud!

Season 3 will find Jennifer Mairo continuing to advance her career and bring more amazing women to the group but not without having conflict with almost everyone else.

And she’s not the only one doing some major things these days, with Ms Nabou being a recent software engineering graduate but still at odds with DJ Sherry Shay who is having a baby, Nancy running her now successful fashion styling firm, Jeri now taking on new clients and having conflict with Jennifer over that, and Candice now friends with one of the new cast mates Chanel, who is dating Zleem, also new cast. Zaena returns with hot romance with Femi.

So many new names we are as overwhelmed as you are. No one is ready for what is about to happen!

There is a trip to Nigeria where the ladies link up with Jennifer John a Nollywood actor and Ije Kimora who’s out there working on new music. Jennifer breaks down about her sisters demise while Nony tries to convince the other ladies that Jennifer is not as good a person as she portrays herself to be. This causes major conflict between new cast Dr O.J and Nabou.

Jaden is a mentee and Rochelle a best friend. Former Miss Black Texas USA Joanne, Uthman of Perception Pictures and Quintin join as new Real Naija Ladies of Dallas cast members this season.

Just because these ladies look so sophisticated on Instagram and there are guys now as part of the cast doesn’t mean there won’t be any drama among these African millenials. Not only will there be some major couples spats but friendships will also be tested like never before.

This is a season you don’t want to miss!

Kidi Is Too Big A Brand To Be Disrespected In Such A Manner – KOBBY KYEI Jabs Accra FM

Published

on

Entertainment and Lifestyle Blogger Kobby Kyei has criticized Accra FM’s presenter Nana Romeo, over his treatment of highlife artiste Kidi. An incident, which went viral on social media this week, saw Kidi confronted on live radio for coming late to the program.

The presenter, who felt disrespected by the artist’s lateness to the show, strong-armed Kidi into apologizing on the show and then refused to conduct the rest of the interview since this was the second time he had come in late to the same radio show.

Speaking to Jay Foley on Joy Prime’s morning show, Kobby Kyei said that although he understands the need to set an example to discourage lateness in the future, Kidi’s brand is too big to be used as the scapegoat in sending such a message.

“It was right for Nana Romeo to address KiDi’s lateness because I’m sure that if KiDi was invited for an interview in the states he wouldn’t have been late. The excuse for being stuck in traffic isn’t valid. Getting to a place earlier than the scheduled time even makes you prepare ahead of time, it’s comforting. He said, defending the presented.

He however added; “It was a second time so I think it’s high time we condemn that act. For me, I’m just sad that they used KiDi as a scapegoat. It should’ve happened to one of these up-and-coming artists. That would’ve been forgivable, but KiDi is a big brand.”

Kobby Kyei argues that incidents like this will serve as a deterrent to others who are fond of going to interviews late.
