God’s wrath will visit Achimota school for denying students with dreadlocks admission – Ras Kuuku

Ras-Kuuku1

Musician, Ras Kuuku has threatened the management of Achimota School with curses for refusing two students with dreadlocks admission into the school.

The Rastafarian Musician students were told to go and cut down their hair before being allowed the opportunity to study in the school; a directive that has since generated a national debate.

While the Old Students of the Achimota School and the PTA are backing their headmistress for issuing that directive, the Ghana Education Service (GES) which initially backed the students have withdrawn their support.

Commenting on the issue on Angel Midday News, Ras Kuuku said he is shocked the authorities at Achimota School will do such a thing.

He argued that dreadlocks were not alien to the African Tradition and hence it would be prudent for the management of Achimota School to grant the students admission.

To him, this is the ‘highest form of discrimination in Ghana now’ which will attract God’s wrath on the Achimota School.

“This is the highest form of discrimination in recent times and I am shocked it is happening. God’s wrath will visit Achimota School if they fail to allow the students into the school…,” he said.

Kirk Franklin Issues An Apology, After His Son Released Audio of Him Shouting Expletives…

930872764_380498

Kirk Franklin released an apology video explaining the background and details of a video where he uses expletives towards his son

In the apology, Kirk Franklin explains that his son is 33 and they had a poor relationship up until this point. He explained that his son only recorded that specific part to make his father look bad. Kirk Franklin said that the family therapist was on the line and that his son had been very disrespectful beforehand.

Kirk Franklin clarifies that they’re all trying to work things out with help from the therapist.

The original video itself starts in the middle of an argument between Kirk Franklin and his son Kerrion. Kirk Franklin is the first one to speak in the video, but it’s clear that he’s responding to something his son said.

The video starts with Kirk Franklin saying:

“Okay, if you think I’m (Inaudible) let me say it like this: When yo’ b**** ass starts (inaudible) disrespectful, you need to get yo’ skinny mother f***ing ass back out the god damn way. Before I put my foot in yo ass–”

Kerrion interrupts and tells his father, “I dare you” multiple times, and to “shut the f*** up.”

This is the text that came with the original Instagram post:

“This is why I’m done. No father should speak to their children like this. If I have any issues it’s because Of this type of treatment that ii deal with behind closed doors. Hanging up in my face, No apology, no compassion, no effort. Stop telling me to go home to my family I don’t even know where they live. I don’t think I’ll ever trust my father to be alone around him ever again. I didn’t want to do this. I probably won’t release the entire recording because it’s too embarrassing that Im even dealing with this. No matter what ppl think I pray my dad deals with his deep hatred toward me. I don’t feel safe around him at all. This recording is recent it is not from 2018 just to clarify. Im going to learn from these experiences, live my life in peace and make beautiful art.”

44095536.295

Call it nostalgia but it is an undeniable fact that there is some element of fulfilment in listening to “old” gospel songs from our veteran musicians.

Could it be the production? Not exactly, because there is better technology to record these days.

Message? Pretty much so, because attention was paid to content and their message was sent out to help uplift, edify and transform the vulnerable.

But at a particular point in time, Ghanaian music lovers missed out on these old soul-lifting songs from our mothers.

These pioneers of Ghanaian gospel music graced UTV’s United Showiz programme on Saturday, March 13, 2021, to discuss their long absence, experience, lessons and other happenings in the Ghanaian gospel fraternity.

Not forgetting their compelling performance which proved that despite their old age, their voices and stagecraft remain top-notch.

The likes of Abaawa Comfort, Hannah Marfo, Diana Hopeson, Ophelia Nyantakyi, and Helena Rhabbles among other things, talked about their career span.

They disclosed doing active music and staying relevant for the past 40, 26, 30, 20 and 26 years respectively.

Explaining their absence in the music scene, some of these veterans established that the hardships and financial constraints at that time compelled them to venture into other fields.

Others travelled oversees to live with their family and a few have released some fresh music for their fans.

LGBTQ comments: MoG was misquoted, unfairly judged – Management

MOGMusic-e1608022589706

Management of award-winning gospel musician, Pastor Nana Yaw Boakye Yiadom was known by his stage name, MOG music says some recent statements made by their artiste on LGBTQ+ has been misrepresented.

According to the management, their artiste is not a supporter of LGBTQ+ practice and that he had, by his statement, sought to show love to the community as proffered by Christian belief.

The gospel artiste in a recent interview with Joy Prime stated his willingness to work with persons of LGBTQ+ background.

“I don’t mind working with an LGBTQ person. They are people that need to be shown, love.”
“If we are saying what they are doing is wrong the only way we can correct them is through love. But when we despise them and push them away, it is not going to bring any change, they will still keep on doing what they are doing” he said.

Following public reactions to the statement, his management in a release maintained that his statements have been misrepresented by the media to cast their artiste in a bad light in the public’s eye.

“MOG music, following the Christian principle of showing love to unbelievers, only sought to highlight the fact that the practice, which God abhors can be stopped by showing the people who are engaged in it, the same love and mercy God shows us and not that he supports LGBTQ+ practice,” portions of the statement read.

Gospel musician Boadiwaa rebrands to Nsroma

Nsroma1-1-626×375

Gospel minstrel, songwriter, and recording artiste Nsroma Delanyo Amoateng, formerly known as Boadiwaa, is about to release a new song.

Asked what necessitated the name change from Boadiwaa to Nsroma, she said: “there comes a time when a caterpillar will have to become a butterfly and through a painful almost death inflicting process, this change happens.“

She felt she had gotten a time in her life that she needed a change and one of the things she felt strongly about changing was her name.

The change of name was to reflect where she is going and what God is about to do in her life. Nsroma means ‘star’ in the Akan language and for her, it’s synonymous with shining in excellence.

Her desire is to spread the love, presence, and power of God to the nations through her music and the word of God. Talking of the power of God, she shared a mind-blowing testimony of how God healed her of a hole in her brain.

With a lot of conviction, she said “he who has begun a good work will bring it to an expected end”. This is the message in her new song featuring the award-winning MOG Music titled ‘Reason’.

It talks about finding reasons to praise God in spite of everything that happens in our lives knowing that all things are working together for our good and he will complete the good work he has started in our lives.

‘Reason’ will be released on ‘February 27, 2021.

Nsroma is also known for songs such as ‘Adom’, ‘Eye Onoa’ and ‘Note from God’.
