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

Cobby Sackitey by

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.

Doctor Cautions men to visit the toilet before having sex

Cobby Sackitey by

Let’s be real. Having sex with someone new or old can be both extremely exciting and overwhelmingly intimidating. There’s a lot of pressure to “get it right” and to “make sure everything’s perfect.” Even if you know those pressures are ridiculous, having all of them hovering over you can sometimes hinder the fun of the experience.

While there’s no way to control the world around you, there are a few tangible things you can check off your list to make sure you at least feel as prepared as possible before you add another name to your sexytime list.

The latest to add to the list is toilet, and that’s according Dr. Adu Boahene.

Interview with SVTV Africa with host DJ Nyaami, the Chief Executive Officer of Genesis Homeopathic Clinic, Dr. Kwadwo Adu Boahene revealed that, men are to visit the toilet before engaging in any sexual affair to prevent any anorectal disorder.

“The anus is linked to the penis. So If you have a very strong anorectal muscle, when you erect, it stands firm. But if you have a weak anorectal muscle, when you erect, it doesn’t stand firm. If you want a very strong penis, pay attention to your anus and if you want a strong and firm erection, visit the toilet before having sex or before you sleep.” He noted.

Dr. Boahene also pointed out that, men who enjoys quickies all the time, stands a chance of having a poor performance in bed for the rest of their lives. He said, this is because the brain gets used to the one-minute performance in bed and this result in bad sexual life.

Dr. Kwadwo Adu Boahene is a Medical Doctor by profession and the CEO of Genesis Homeopathic Clinic located in Tema, Community four (4).

Most Ghanaians live beyond their means - CEO of Kikibees laments

Cobby Sackitey by

"I think all people live real lives, but I think many of us, Ghanaians, give false impressions about their lives and themselves.

"Some impress to a greater extent than others. I think it goes hand in hand with materialism. So many are fixated with having more than the next guy, either financially or family size or a related quality of life," the Chief Executive Officer of KikiBees Restaurant, Pub and Lounge, Mr Bennet Agyekum has revealed.

According to him a lot of Ghanaians live beyond their means either trying to impress their family or friends.

In an interview with SVTV Africa, Mr Agyekum told host DJ Nyaami that, he has been to lots of countries across the world, and he has seen that only in Ghana, people dress simply to impress people. He said, he believes in a simple life and believes in doing what one can do and not living to impress someone.

“Its only in Ghana, we live beyond our means, we do things hastily, I don’t want to say anything that I would get misinterpreted. But me, I believe in simple life, I believe in doing what you can do, not to impress anyone, you understand what I’m saying. And too many people in my motherland are living to impress people and they’re being miserable at doing that, bro it’s very very frustrating.”

“You see all these young boys hurriedly living their life just to impress, why? take it easy, live your life, do what you can do.” He added. Mr. Agyekum also pointed out that, it’s only in Ghana that, VIP and VVIP tickets get finished before Regular tickets compared to elsewhere in the western world where Regular and Standard tickets are sold first before VIP and VVIP.

Commenting on people being bounced or denied access to a club or bar due to their fashion style, Mr. Agyakum noted that, “That practice isn’t done here at Kikibees. First and foremost, it’s a restaurant, you come and eat, and relax. If you want to look classy in the evening, that one it’s up to you.

"But to deny you access because you’re wearing slippers or shorts, no it’s not done here. Because to me, it’s embarrassing because if you go to Barcelona, Spain, or Venice, you are allowed to enter the club or lounges with your slippers, we’re copying wrongly from the western world. You go somewhere, and if you’re not wearing a designer shirt, you’re not allowed to enter. Ghana is the only place that, when event is being organized, VIP and VVIP is sold out first before the regular, how is this possible in a third world country?” he added.

The business tycoon is not the only person to speak against the life people live and also on social media.

Actress Yvonne Nelson in an interview said, 90 percent of people live fake lives, especially on social media. She stated, either they’re to trying to impress their followers or get followers.

Mr Bennet Agyekum urged the youth, not be swayed by what they see because so many people exhibit fake lifestyles especially on social media.

“Efya Nokturnal has been one artiste that, when I hear her voice, I get goosebumps all over my body. Efya, and you know, I love Efya so much that, when I wrote my chocho mucho song even without starting the production, I nearly gave her the song. She should take it and sing it.” He added. 
According to the ‘Chocho Mucho’ hitmaker, he loves the way, Efya sings and her versatility. 

“Like, I love the way she sings, she is too powerful, a powerful singer, and I love powerful singers. Efya is that artiste who is good at and has everything, so since I didn’t plan of coming into the music industry, I thought of giving my song to her.”

Bless is out with his new single entitled ‘Moonlight’.

The impressive Highlife track was released alongside its video on the same day and was produced by Kindee.

The song, he noted, was a ballad and taught men to appreciate women without breaking their heart.

Since he discovered his calling and passion some years ago, he took the bold step and kicked off the business of singing professionally. Ever since then, Bless born Kwabena Boateng has not left any stone unturned as he has continued to perform in major shows and concerts within Ghana.

Highlife musician Lucky Mensah predicts another victory for Akufo-Addo in 2020

Cobby Sackitey by

Highlife musician, Lucky Mensah has once again pledged his commitment to supporting Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, through thick and thin, to win the 2020 general election for the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

In an interview with SVTV Africa, the renowned highlife artiste told host DJ Nyaami that, he together with his team, will remain in the corner of Ghana’s leader until success comes their way again as far as the 2020 general election is concerned.

“Oh by God’s grace, I will sing for the NPP come 2020. Nana Addo must complete his eight years. So come rain or shine, I’ve to support Nana Addo so that he can complete his eight years and finish the good things he started. I know the good things he has started, he will bring it to an end and Ghana will be a place to be for all. So it’s impossible for him to end his tenure without completing his full term,” he noted.

According to the ‘Nkratuo’ singer, Akufo-Addo’s achievements comes nowhere close to his predecessor when achievements are being compared, hence, the need for Ghanaians to give him the second chance to finish his term.

Asked why the NPP and not the National Democratic Congress as he did some years back, he replied, “Oh as for NPP, they are appreciative, that’s how I see it. Wherever I meet NPP members, they show some gratitude for what I did for them, that alone is encouragement.”

Lucky Mensah has often been on the receiving end of criticism having publicly declared his support for the NPP.

He, however, added that despite the criticisms that have come his way, he doesn’t regret campaigning for the NPP.

Lucky Mensah has been off the music scene since his association with local politics in previous years.

The highlife crooner is however back onto the music scene with a brand new jam titled ‘Tonight’.
