I am encouraged when people say I am Illuminati – Sarkodie

Hip-Life superstar, Michael Owusu Addo, known in showbiz as Sarkodie, says he is not bothered when people think his continuous rise is because he is a member of the secret society, Illuminati.

Illuminati refers to several groups of both real and fictitious secret society perceived to be controlling events in the world.

Members of Illuminati are believed possess the deep secrets to acquiring wealth, fame and influence.

Since Sarkodie’s meteoric rise to the apex of show business in Ghana, rumours have suggested that he has joined the secret society – like many in showbiz are rumoured to have done.

Although he released a song strategically titled Illuminati in a bid to dispel the rumours, that did not seem to have worked.

Those who claim to have insight into Illuminati symbolism have also sought to criticise him for using them in his music videos.

Responding to the rumours that he is a member of the society on The Hard Truth on the Joy News channel on MultiTV,  Wednesday, Sarkodie suggested that although he is not affiliated to the group, the tag makes him feel positive about his achievements.

“I take it in a positive way…For [people] to make that comparison then it should tell you where you are. I am worried more [about] people who care about me, not what is said about me…I am more worried about family members who [broke down over the Illuminati tag] and it got to them.

“That was the only reason why I did the song. But personally, I don’t care. I think it is a good situation to be in [when] people feel like there is something more than just talent that can make you who you are,” he told show host Akosua Konadu.

In the song he released to dispel the rumours, Sakordie said he would have been an owner of an estate in Hawaii had he been a member of the secret society.

The driver of the VIP bus reportedly survived the accident but he is currently unconscious at the same hospital receiving treatment from doctors.

The body of the Maame Hwԑ hit singer, and the unidentified military personnel were rushed to the Bechem Government Hospital after the accident but died shortly after.

Joe Mettle challenges MUSIGA’s Top 20 Songs for 2017

The 2017 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards’ Artiste of the Year, Joe Mettle has expressed doubt about the authenticity of the list of 20 songs that had much radio airplay in 2017.

The list which excludes gospel songs has raised controversies on the back of explanations that gospel songs did not have enough radio airplay in 2017.

According to gospel musician Joe Mettle who spoke in an interview on Accra-based Happy FM, “without research, one can tell gospel songs are played constantly on air.”

He challenged the list which was compiled by Qisimah Insight, saying he did not believe the research was well done.

“Until we are shown the bases of the research, the top 20 most played songs is just their opinion and that cannot be challenged,” Joe noted.

While some arts and entertainment critics have said the list should have included at least a gospel song, others also hold the opinion that gospel music did not fare well in 2017.

Joe Mettle, whose ‘Bo Noo Ni’ has been described as one of the top gospel songs in Ghana at the moment, released the ‘God of Miracle’ album.

Some have asserted that he is likely to win the VGMA Artiste of the Year award again this year.

Wizkid is a super star – Samini tells Shatta Wale

Dancehall artiste, Samini, has described Nigerian musician, Wizkid as a superstar who has gone far with his talent.

This position by the ‘My Own’ hitmaker contravenes that stance of his colleague, Shatta Wale, who said, he does not see Wizkid as a superstar and that he is not stunned when he sees Wizkid, unlike other Ghanaians who get star struck.

Samini described Wizkid as a superstar after Shatta Wale called on him to help him in the fight against Nigerians who descended on him for saying their Wizkid is not a superstar.

He said: “No one said any of what you dey type my brother. He’s a superstar like me and you and plenty others on the continent. That’s alllllll I’m saying my Gee. I don’t know your beef and I’m not part. You called me to join and I told you straight “I’m vegetarian” chale why ? Bandanna”.

2 killed while dancing to ‘One Corner’ on motorbike

Two people who were on a motorbike dancing to the popular “one corner” tune have met their untimely death at Ntotroso, a mining town in the Asutifi North District of Brong-Ahafo Region.

The accident occurred around midnight on Tuesday, according to a GNA report.

The two were on the motorbike dancing to the tune when they reportedly collided with another person who was skidding off the road and crashed into a structure.

​Patapaa’s ‘One Corner’, is currently the biggest song in Ghana.

The dance craze has seen people go gaga by either perching on whatever object is before them, go under cars, chairs or whatever while others isolate themselves on the ground to do a wild gyrating move.

The ‘One Corner’ dance craze has transcended the borders of Ghana and it is currently the hottest thing in Nigeria.

According to the report, the trio had gone on a drinking spree and was returning when the unfortunate incident happened.

An eyewitness said the motor rider was speeding in a sharp curve while dancing.

He added that although the manner in which the victims were ‘displaying’ on the motorbike attracted public caution, they defied all warnings.

Kwabena Fante, 17 and Nyarko Abronoma, 15, died on the spot because none of them was wearing a crash helmet.

The bodies of have since been deposited at the St. Elizabeth Catholic Hospital mortuary at Hwidiem in the Asutifi South District.

The third person on the motorbike, Collins Krukyi, also aged 17, is in a critical condition at the same hospital.

Audio: Rockstone- VVICE is the next big Gh act

Reggie Rockstone- endorses VVICE

By Forgive Adjoa Forfoe, Ghanananet news

The music scene in Ghana has never been the same since he entered the country in 1994 and revolutionalised the industry by originating his brand of hip hop music called HipLife, which has won him both national and international acclaim across continents.

And that has also gifted him the eye to see who will excel or not in the industry. Which is what Reggie Rockstone is banking on as he reveals that upcoming Ghanaian artiste, VVICE, (real name Randy Allotey), an upcoming afro pop act, is the next big act to hit Ghana.

” There’s something very special about this guy, VVICE. He came to my wife and I with the demo of a song he needed a push for. That’s about three to four years ago. I fell in love with the song, instantly. He wanted to feature me on the song but at the time, I was so busy.

“Recently, he sent me another one, Ajo. It blew me off my feet so much so that I did a verse for it and I played it for my very good friend, another legend, Abeiku Talking Drum. He also loved it and also decided to do a verse.

The hiplife ‘grandpapa’ says he has confidence in the ability of the young act and he will personally make him Ghana’s biggest


‘ ‘ He has  basically become part of the family; VVIP, he knows my wife, friends, close circles and all that, and whatever must be done to let him make it big and achieve his dreams, is exactly what we are doing. He is going to be big. I said it. He’s going to be my contribution to VVIP’s project of working on young talents. I’m personally raising him’’

Rockstone thinks that unlike any other act who has passed through his hands,VVICE has certain traits that’s got his (Rockstone’s) whole attention.

‘’What really intrigued me about this guy that really got my attention was his determination because who bugs someone for three long years these days? Who does that? But that’s what he did with me. It has made me respect him a lot and made me feel like there’s something special about this guy, there has to be. Why not give him a try? I love to see young people like that.

‘ ‘There’s not a single artiste here in Ghana, more or less, I can’t point, who didn’t interact with Grandpapa in their career, from as far back as Lord Kenya, Obrafour,Tic Tac,Sarkodie, everyone has at some point interacted with me. But with VVICE, I am paying extra attention to him because of his determination and I just feel like when God speaks, it works in mysterious ways, and I just feel this guy is a big act and I must do everything to let him make it’’

The Tsooboi hitmaker says he will take his time to mould VVICE

‘‘He’s very tolerant and very patient, and when you have these qualities, it’s very rare for you to fail. I will take my time to groom him to be gathering wisdom and all that because, you don’t need to rush. You take your time and get prepared so that by the time you get to the top, you are ready for the big things’’

The ‘Mi na me kae’ singer thinks history is repeating itself with VVICE’S career, comparing VVICE’s single, Ajo, with his Tsooboi that launched his career.

“Ajo is going to be a huge song. We see it as sowing a good seed and waiting for it to grow. I have seen songs that I heard long before they became huge. It has to take a natural progression, not force, not running around to get everyone playing it.

”If you hear Ajo and you know music, it will fall on you. The same happened with my career.I put out Tsooboi and I did not rush. It was those who heard it and knew music who went for it and it became big. The same will happen for Ajo.

‘‘VVICE is definitely a formidable force, and he can also produce beats too. Moreover, his family is very supportive and that’s rare. It gladdens my heart when someone whose greatness I predicted makes it big, that’s what makes me glad’’,he concluded.


He believes that if every woman is able to ‘rock’ her man like his woman does, no man will ever cheat, and that is the message of VVICE’s single, Ajo.

Listen to Ajo below:

Featuring hiplife ‘grandpapa’ Reggie Rockstone, Ajo is a 3:22 minutes afro pop song that gets the good music lover, no matter the age, to dance to its tune, with its mid-tempo nature and VVice’s smooth voice.

The  easy-to-sing song, which is a mixture of two languages; English and Twi,begins with VVICE telling his woman that he is ‘going crazy’ over her. He goes on to tell her that  because of how she is, he won’t survive with just being friends with her, and pleads with her to give in to him.

File. A beautiful African girl, Ajo, every man’s dream girl.

Reggie Rockstone comes in with ” Super sexy with dem jeans on you, do you know what it is that I go through?….eye woaduane ne woakyi nti na Reggie Rockstone will always love you”, meaning,”it’s because of your food and your backside that Reggie will always love you”
The singer believes that every man has  that  special girl that is his Ajo and would conquer the whole world for, regardless any other girl around.
In all, Ajo, which was released some weeks ago, is a classic work that everyone will instantly love upon listening to for the first time.
Born Ranford Allotey, VVICE, a banking student at the Chartered Institute of Banking, Ghana, VVICE believes that anyone who does music part time won’t amount to anything in the industry, and that is what has caused him to put his banking studies on hold to do music full-time.The diploma holder from the Marshalls University,(formerly Meridian Pre-University) is also of the view that Ghanaians are not doing well with afro pop
”Ghanaians have not really caught the afro pop spirit.Most of our artistes are rappers, and we are selling very well with the rap and dancehall, but not afro pop. I won’t say i’m doing something different as an afropop act, but listeners should judge. My music is full of soul”he said.

Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy, others speak fake Patois – Root Eye

Root Eye

One of Ghana’s foremost Dancehall/Reggae artistes Root Eye has revealed that all Ghanaian artistes who claim they are doing dancehall are rather doing Afro-Dancehall and speak fake patois.

Known in real life as Kwasi Nyarko-Ofei, Root Eye who is also the host of TV3’s Music Music show,in a telephone conversation with DJ Roar, the host of Kumasi based Kessben FM’s Entertainment Circle, accentuated that to sing fake patois in a song doesn’t qualify the song to be labeled as a real dancehall. Delineating extensively on his assertion, Root Eye quoted that:

“There’re certain elements that must be present in a song which has an effect on the human mind. The most important of all the elements happen to be the quality of the sound and the tone. Sadly, Ghanaians don’t pay attention to these critical elements in music”.

Root Eye cited that, aside Stonebwoy’s “People Dey” which can be associated with the Jamaican dancehall, all the songs the dancehall artistes in Ghana are doing are nothing but Afro-dancehall.

Complimenting Shatta Wale for his unique style of doing his supposed dancehall music, Root Eye indicated that the latter could be the next biggest artiste in Africa.He advised Shatta to work on the sound of his music.
