Published in News

A 20 year old lady has narrated the harrowing story of her life which has been filled with sexual assault from her father every year since she was 11 years old.

It is not easy for a 20-year-old to come to terms with the fact that she was defiled and impregnated by her own father. Seated and carrying her five-year-old baby on the laps, Abena (not real name) sorrowfully narrates her journey through the valley of depression.

Abena, narrated to SVTV Africa how she has been a victim of her father’s perverse libido. She told host DJ Nyaami on how her father started sleeping with her at 11 and despite the abominable nature of his actions he has not stopped.

In fact, according to the girl he pretends to be teaching her and through that, takes advantage and sleeps with her.

“It is because of my father, that I’m in this situation, doing prostitution. My dad started having sex with me when I was young at about eleven or twelve years old, as at the time we came to Tema community nine. I remember, he offered to teach me and if I don’t understand anything, he punishes me by sleeping with me but I couldn’t tell anyone what my dad was doing because he threatened to beat and kill me if I tell anyone.”

According to her, the constant sex left her pregnant at age fourteen.

“At age fourteen, I became pregnant. When I told my father, he asked me not to tell any other person, promising to help me to abort. He gave me some medicine, but I refuse to take it and told him I’ll reveal the secret but he threatened me that, he will take me to the Prampram sea and kill me there, out of fear, I didn’t tell anybody. He then sent me to his friend’s place at community eight.”

Abena revealed that, she gave birth in the six month of pregnancy unlike the normal nine-month journey. She pointed out that, her son eventually died after breast milk started oozing out of his nose.

Abena further revealed that her ordeal continued after she lost her son, she was sometimes maltreated and chained by her father to prevent her from going out. After sometime, she realized, she is pregnant again by her father.

Such stories come out every once in a while and they never stop being sad.

Abena’s life story is certainly a sad one. Watch the video below and listen to her full story:

I’m Ready To Campaign For Any Political Party In 2020 - Nero X

Published in News

Several popular musicians and entertainers in Ghana have shared their views about the 2020 general election, including endorsing their preferred candidates and urging their fans to honor their votes.

Just like every other election year in Ghana, Politicians employ several strategies during election cycles as they seek to sell their manifestos and garner the most votes.

Some of these strategies include securing endorsements from popular entertainers who usually wield considerable influence among their fanbases.

Song writer and sensational Ghanaian singer, Joseph Nkrumah Buabeng, popularly known as Nero X, has expressed readiness to record music for political parties ahead of the 2020 general elections.

Speaking in an interview on SVTV Africa, the ‘Osey’ hit maker told host DJ Nyaami that, he will do songs for any political party which approaches him regardless of whether he supports the party or not.

“Of course why not? I’m working, that doesn’t mean anything. If I come to perform at your campaign, that doesn’t mean, I will vote for you or not unless you convinced me that, whatever you’re bringing on board will help us. The thing is, they come and promise us but fails to fulfill the promise.”

“Right now, I don’t even have appetite for voting for anyone, but if somebody comes out to abide by whatever we bring on board, then why not. Because when they get there, they don’t think about us again, so when it’s time for election, we have the power. So we just have to give them something to think.” He added.

Commenting on the 2020 general election, Nero X advised the youth and Ghanaians in general to vote wisely and desist from any political influence.

“2020 what can come can come, you understand?...the thing is, you just follow your heart, look at your condition and vote base on that. It’s a norm, so you just check your current situation and vote base on that.”

Celebrities declaring their support for political parties has become an issue of concern as some have remarked that it ends up having adverse effects on the stars.

Others however said that once the constitution of the land provides for freedom of association, celebrities should equally and freely enjoy that political right.

Nero X is out with another inspirational gospel tune. He calls this one “Jehovah”. Jehovah is a title given to the most high God.
