Strongman Renders Unqualified Apology To All Women; Ask For Forgiveness

Cobby Sackitey by

Rapper Strongman has apologized for the near fisticuff that ensued between his fans and fans of Medikal during a beef last week.

Strongman in an interview on SVTV Africa after his performance at the KikiBees karaoke with stars expressed regrets for his jabs at Medikal’s girlfriend, Fella Makafui.

“Medikal feels bossy and that’s why I had to meet him with my bossy style. But for now Ghanaians should forgive us for dragging the women into it, it wasn’t cool but because he started it, I felt like I should also defend Nana Ama and that’s why Fella came in. So I’m still taking this opportunity to say sorry once again to everyone who got hurt for that part”

Strongman told host DJ Nyaami that, he will be more than glad to feature Medikal when the need arise.

“Oh yeah it’s possible, I just don’t like the way he feels bossy, it pisses me off. But I’ve realized he has followed me on twitter and I followed him back so that’s the process because the two of us aren’t friends because of his behavior but due to the beef, a collaboration can happen and we can do a song together. We’ve iron out our differences”

Strongman called on his fans and all Ghanaians to support his music and help promote his commercial songs just like they did during the beef.

I’m Still Battling With Drugs Despite Efforts To Quit - Former BBC Journalist Reveals

Cobby Sackitey by

A former Ghanaian BBC journalist has opened up on his drug addiction since 1982 when he became a drug peddler.

It will be recalled that, the former BBC journalist Paa Joe Odonkor revealed in an interview last year why he left his promising international career to become a drug dealer, commanding over $162,000, an equivalent of GHS728,336 in 1982 until he got busted in March 1984.

A year on, one would think that, the journalist-turned drug peddler has quit drugs and doing something better with his life but the situation hasn’t change, it remains the same according to Paa Joe.

In an interview on SVTV Africa, Paa Joe Odonkor told host DJ Nyaami that, a year on after he opened up on his drug peddling career, he is still battling with drugs despite the countless efforts to quit.

“If I tell you after a year I have stop doing drugs, I would be lying to God and myself. The thing is in my system and until I get a good rehabilitation center, I can’t stop taking drugs. People say once you get into it, you can get out at any time you want, that’s a lie…..unless you get a good rehab center to wash your system completely because you become a addicted after some time and the system gets saturated with drugs”

On whether he would like to quit or stop taking drugs, Paa Joe said, “Absolutely! If I get someone who will take me to a proper rehab center where there are doctors who will take you through the system”

He added that, although he was satisfied with his BBC job at the time, his lifestyle was "so big" that he had to look for a different source of income to sustain it and that’s what got him into drug peddling.

 He advised the youth to desist from drugs or any other vices that will not help them.

Paa Joe Odonkor furthered that, he is writing a book on drugs to advice the youth not to venture in drugs.

“I’ve started writing a book but had to put it on hold due to lack of funds. The thing is, I don’t have any experience, like banking or football, I don’t have any experience but when it comes to drugs, from processing it to heroin and cocaine, if awards were to be given, I would be more than a PhD holder or pass a Professor. So I really want to write a book to advice the youth because drugs can destroy both your spiritual and social life”

Paa Joe Odonkor called on government and corporate Ghana to help curb the menace of drug abuse in Ghana.

Brother Sammy would face GHC 180k fine & 15 years imprisonment if found guilty - FDA

Cobby Sackitey by

It would be recalled that Kumasi based Gospel musician Brother Sammy went viral on social media in a video inviting people to buy his product which he claimed it can cure HIV/Aids and other chronic diseases.

Following this, the Food and Drugs Authority in a press statement caused his arrest and alarmed the public that the said Gospel musician's product hasn’t been approved by their outfit and urged people not to patronize the product.

In an interview on SVTV Africa, the Public Relations Officer for the FDA, James Lartey told host DJ Nyaami that, Brother Sammy could be fined an amount of GHs90,000 minimum or 180,000 maximum if found guilty.

"We've reported him to the police because he has flouted our law. Well, this is an offence against the law, so we've left everything for the police. so the police will be doing the investigation and questioning, and if found guilty he will be sent to court...

According to the Public Health Act, Act 851...when you flout the law and you're found guilty, you'll pay a minimum fine of GHs 90,000 or maximum fine of GHs 180,000 and then if the Judge decides to jail you, the minimum jail term is 15years and the maximum is 25years or the Judge can say he will do both" he added.

Lartey, however, added that the FDA does not regulate spirituality, and so issues of spirituality don't fall under their jurisdiction.

He furthered that, the FDA will work assiduously to bring scammers and defaulters to book when caught selling unapproved products.

Earlier today, there were rumours that Brother Sammy has been granted bail after he was busted in the Ashanti Region with the aid of FDA.

Well the situation isn’t the same in Tema, as Kofi Anim, an 87-year-old man who fell into tears after been denied the chance to register for the Ghana Card.

According to the old man, after presenting the required documents, the NIA officer asked him to go and bring two guarantors before he can register.

Explaining his ordeal at the registration center, the senior citizen told host DJ Nyaami on SVTV Africa that, he was asked to bring his passport, voters ID, or NHIS, which he did. He said he presented every document he has to the registration officers only to be told he cannot register unless he gets two guarantors to guarantee for him.

“I’m purposely registering for the card because I was told the Ghana Card will replace other cards in the system, and will accepted by all institutions as valid ID cards including hospitals. So I’m registering it because of the hospitals….So I presented every document I have but still they say I’m not qualified to register and that I’m not a Ghanaian. I told them I’m a Ghanaian and they say, I should go and bring two guarantors that will guarantee for me before I can register and I don’t know where I’m going to get a guarantor, so that’s why I shed tears’’

 

Asked whether he has children or guardian to help him out he said “Yes, I have 11 children but only 9 are alive now and they all live here in Tema but none of them is taking care of me, some are young and are now coming up. I’ve not wrong them in anyway but they just don’t take care of me, maybe it’s because I left their mother. But I have no problem, it’s just because of the hospital that’s why I’m registering for the card’’

Mr. Anim added that, if he gets a guarantor in the shortest time, he will register for the Ghana card happily.

 

The Ghana Card registration would be extended to other regions after its close in Greater Accra on Saturday, July 6.

I'm standing on the word of God, every government or public worker who knows something about NAM 1's fraudulent money, may God bring a severe heart attack on you and your family.

Meet The Pastor Who Claims He Can Heal Every Mad Person In Ghana

Cobby Sackitey by

The World Health Organization defines Mental disorders as a broad range of problems, with different symptoms. They are generally characterized by some combination of abnormal thoughts, emotions, behavior and relationships with others. The disorder can be treated by a Mental Health Professional that is a Psychiatric.

Apostle Peter Kabutey, founder of Christ Healing Ministry believes he is called into ministry to treat people with mental disorders. The man of God disclosed that, after he was cured from mental illness in his prime time, he then realized that, he has the power to also cure people with mental disorders by praying to God.

In an interview on SVTV Africa, the acclaimed psychiatric told host DJ Nyaami that, he has been healing mad people and all kind of spiritual problems through prayers for over 30 years.

“I was called into ministry while in Italy in the year 1980. I went mad at once after the holy spirit came upon me, so I was sent to asylum until I recovered. When I return to Ghana I met one man called Ataangma who brought me to Tema-Newtown in1987 to start this church by healing people with mental disorders and all kinds of spiritual problems”

Apostle Kabutey added that, there are varieties of mental disorders and some mental cases cannot be treated by the psychiatric hospitals in Ghana unless they resort to spiritual means to solve it. He however noted that, there are some cases that needed to see a psychiatric and those cases are usually referred to the hospital.

Commenting on marijuana whether or not it should be legalized, he said, “Errr as for wee, I wouldn’t advise that it should be legalized. I’ve smoke it before and it’s not that bad but people abuse it and use it for the wrong reasons, so after a while they become addicted to it. Some of the cases we’re treating here are wee cases. So I don’t think it should be legalized’’

Speaking to some patients at the church revealed that, some are still not mentally stable, others who are in chains didn’t want to talk at all and are showing some signs of aggressiveness.

The rehabilitation center is located in Tema – Newtown, Manhean.

Apostle Kabutey noted that, his church is open to all and not for some people only.
