- Sarkodie gets nominated for BET Hip-hop Awards and Ghanaians are not happy
It’s quite safe to state the fact that Ghanaian awards winning rapper, Sarkodie popularly known as Ghanaian rap god is one of the very few Ghanaian artists who are sincere with their music career and their homeland, Ghana. He has always worked very hard to put Ghana music scene to an international level.
From doing successful international tours to doing the awards winning collaborations and making meaningful singles, Sarkodie has played a vital role in making Ghana proud through music. For his continuous efforts, he has won various local as well as international awards including the honorary Black Entertainment Television (BET) award. It’s quite a deal to bag one BET award but that’s not the case for Sarkodie as he has got another nomination while making history. Yes! You heard it right, according to Joy News Ghana, the ‘Highest’ hitmaker has got a mega nomination in the category (hip-hop) which never existed until now.
In other words, the organizers of the BET Awards have introduced the category of hip-hop for the first time in 2019 and guess what? Ghana’s finest Sarkodie has got the nomination. No doubt, it’s a moment of pride and celebrations for all Ghanaians. While speaking exclusively about the nomination, the rap god said it feels super great to be nominated for such a prestigious award.
However, it’s in the nature of Ghanaians to spoil the celebratory mood of the celebrities by reminding them, what they cannot achieve anyway. Likewise, some of the Ghanaians demand Sarkodie try and win in the English speaking countries as well. So, he couldn’t resist talking about how English native rappers always get the benefit because of their mother tongue. According to him, artists should never be judged in terms of language instead they should be judged by the stage flow.
Sarkodie also explained the whole thing by saying that “I keep explaining it is a cheat for me to try and battle in English because they were born into it even though he has the technique to beat them when it comes to stage flow. People always say the best rappers are in America, Grammy will say they are the best musicians, Miss World will say she is the most beautiful lady because of those who contested with her, which is not necessarily true. I always believe that in “act” there are always levels to it because there are certain people that when I see them I know they are good but technically I am better.”

- JP Morgan all set to give criminals to ‘join the party’
JP Morgan is ready to provide people with some sort of a criminal record, with an opportunity to re-live their lives as an executive by providing them jobs.
JP Morgan,which is the largest bank in the United States, wants to consider the ex-criminals or convicted for jobs in their bank.
The bank has allowed entry to a fewer number of people with criminal record, with minor charges and are working in transaction processing and account servicing.
The United States loses a handful of GDP, around 80 billion dollars, by ignoring previously charged criminals for jobs. The bank has taken the initiative of allowing such people with an opportunity of living a dedicated and healthy life devoid of any contamination.

- Ghana-Teofimo Lopez promises to beat Commey on December 14
It’s probably the history in making as the Americans and Ghanaian sports lovers are looking forward to a special date and that is December 14th, 2019. They have marked their calendars as it’s going to be the record-breaking world title fight between American boxer, Teofimo Lopez and Ghanaian boxer, Richard Commey at the Madison Square Garden on the very date. (Ghana)
There is no doubt in the fact that Americans are not happy with Teofimo Lopez for his constant poor performance but the boxer is assured of winning the world title at the ESPN televised triple-header on December 14th. One of the main reasons for winning the world title is to prove the critics wrong and gaining their support back. Lopez has recently made a very convincing statement about winning the fight and thus achieved half of the goal of getting his support system back. According to the GTV Ghana report, in his statement about the fight, Lopez couldn’t resist giving a heads up to his challenger, Richard Commey. He said he is all set to put Commey to sleep as he is the major obstacle in his way of winning the world title and his support system back. Ghana
Teofimo Lopez was exclusively interviewed by the boxing channel where he talked about the ESPN televised triple-headed in detail. He said he is very glad about the location of the fight which is Madison Square Garden as it was his dream to win his first world title at that very location. His exact words are, “I’m finally back at Madison Square Garden, the place where I always wanted to win my first world title.” Moreover, while talking about the critics Lopez said he is going to win his supporters back by giving them a spectacular win.
Lopez also expressed the fact that he really respects Commey as he is a great boxer but when they would be in a ring to fight, he would make sure to defeat him. He said, “I believe this fight will shut up all of the critics and prove to everyone that I back up my talking in the ring. I respect Commey as a champion, but when we’re in that ring, it’s going to be lights out for him. Come December 14, I am officially taking over the lightweight division.” (Ghana)
Lopez lost the faith of his supporters after the July 19th fight with the Japanese well-known boxer, Masayoshi Nakatani by taking the much-hyped 12-round decision. However, it seems like he has gained half of his supporters back just by giving such a convincing interview. We are so looking forward to December 14th to see who puts who to sleep.

- Cookie Tee didn’t win any RTP award but something bigger than that
When the entire Ghanaian entertainment industry, media outlets, radio, and TV has been indulging in the negative energies for the past many years, some of the celebrities prove that there is always a silver lining in every radio. We see celebrities bashing each other and media outlets presenting those beef by adding major explorations on TV/social media on a daily basis. This type of news clearly shows the difference in communication between common people and the people who are in higher places and the lace of optimism and patience.
However, for now as per a wonderful report from Ghana entertainment news, Ghanaian well-known radio personality and TV host, Cookie Tee has set a positive example by posting about the just-finished Radio and Television Personality Awards 2019. The host didn’t get any award at the awards ceremony and she was among the nominated ones. Despite the fact that she didn’t get any award, the TV host has shown a perspective that definitely deserves an award. The host took to her official Instagram handle and posted a gratitude note about the ceremony which has made everyone surprised.
According to Cookie, it doesn’t matter whether she got the award at the RTP 2019 or not as she got something bigger which is the experience of hosting for the second time. While talking exclusively about the RTP Awards 2019, Cookie Tee said, “We didn’t win this time, but what I actually won on that stage hosting for the second time is way more priceless than any award! I WON EXPERIENCE and that to me is EVERYTHING as I journey on in this Media Space.”
The host also exclusively thanked everyone who voted for her by saying that, “THANK YOU to ALL who took time to vote for me considering how “COMPLICATED” it was to go through the voting process. To you all Genuine fans and loved ones who keep on looking out for me and cheering me on, I say GOD BLESS YOU!! —WE KEEP MOVING.”
There is no doubt in the fact that Cookie has shown a very postie insight to everyone. We couldn’t expect the same response from most of our celebrities who need to up their game and be a positive example. Likewise, in one of my previous blogs, I talked about how Lydia bashed a fan on Twitter without thinking twice. It’s high time that celebrities all over the world realize the fact that they have a responsibility on their shoulders so they can’ act like normal people. Just like Cookie showed an example, everyone should do the same.
