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).
