Chief Imam of Okaikwei South District, Ishamael Okotah Badoo is enraged by the prominence of the popular song and dance – ‘One Corner’.
The tune composed by Swedru-based artiste Patapaa, has transcended the borders of Ghana and reported to have gained grounds in Nigeria, U.K and the U.S.A.
In spite of the feat attained by the song, the Chief Imam believes that the tune and its accompanying dance is demonic and needs to be uprooted.
“It is demonic. If it is not demonic, we have been listening to a lot of music but people will not jump when a motorcycle is going…or by force climb a tree. This is very dangerous,” he asserted.
According to him, the dance craze is having a negative effect on children due to the absurd activities it encourages children to engage in.
“These are things that are coming to destroy our children on this land…” he said.
Chief Imam Ishamael Okotah Badoo states that the existence of ‘One Corner’ has polluted the environment in which people live and there was the urgent need to ask Allah for forgiveness.
“We are begging the Imams, we are begging the Pastors, the Reverends…we are begging everybody…Let us go down on our knees and beg Allah,” the Islamic scholar pleaded.
He added that Allah is a merciful God and will surely forgive Ghanaians for entertaining the demonic ‘One Corner’ craze.
Mike Sonko is the 2nd Governor of Nairobi but he’s more popular for his extravagant lifestyle.
The 42-year-old, who has been a politician for years, is known to show off his luxury possessions on social media. He has a love for all things shiny, gold to be specific, and he has no qualms about acquiring as many gold items as he can.
His cars are all made of gold and so are his phones and jewelries. It is alleged that he only takes drinks that have a golden colour and come in gold bottles.
The flamboyant politician rose to national political prominence when he was elected as the Member of Parliament for Makadara Constituency, Kenya at the age of 35. Though he’s now in a legitimate venture – politics -, it wasn’t always so. According to Wikipedia, Sonko spent his early years in crime. He started mugging people in the streets of Nairobi and Mombasa before graduating to international crime.
He was reportedly a major international drug lord, according to Buzz Kenya, and he is a notorious jailbreaker, having escaped from Shimo La Tewa Prison. Before he joined politics, he used to operate a fleet of public vehicles known as Matatus in Eastlands yet still engaged in shady deals.

WE DONT WANT ANY MANDATORY NSS LIFE INSURANCE POLICY RATHER MAKE IT OPTIONAL.
No one wants to be treated unfairly, Why won’t we believe there is a parochial interest , why won’t we believe a strong cartel is hiding behind this wanting to jump on our allowances, When are we going to put an end to all this unjust practices and antiquated means of policy formulation And implementation, are we in the stone age or age of enlightenment.
We were dumbfounded by a news item published by http://mynewsgh.comon the 31st October, 2017 whiles going about our national duties concerning a mandatory NSS life insurance policy launched by the Deputy NSS director Henry Nana Boakye stating that Everything seems to be moving on smoothly for National Service Personnel serving the country as the government plans to introduce new insurance policy for them and that the National Service Scheme is collaborating with Glico Insurance and other companies to insure service personnel across the country. According to him, the insurance policy will come to help address most challenges and difficulties we go through during our one year service to the nation.
The policy which was launched today, 31st October 2017, is characterized by what i term as gross Leniency error because Currently Staring at the scheme is Some genuinely registered service personnel in the country undertaking their mandatory service to the country on an empty stomach due to NSS press release last week, that about 8,000 service personnel’s across the countries payment are put on hold because the Secretariat felt there was the need to do more auditing and investigations before they go ahead with their payment.This are purely administrative bottlenecks which we expected to be the headache of the Government that valid service personnel’s captured in the 8000 but at post will be paid before speaking on any issue but to our surprise is the launch of an Life insurance policy, forgetting about NHIS and the fact that some of us are already registered contributors with this same insurance companies and can’t do dual registrations to be deducted unnecessarily, the irregularities are just uncountable.
We, the National Service Personnel of Ghana therefore, wish to tell the government that,the monthly allowance (Gh 559.40) is not enough for us therefore we vehemently reject the imposition of a life insurance policy which terms and conditions is not clearly defined to us. Undoubtedly the policy is a great intervention but suffers a compositional ailment, and was hastily launched prematurely without proper engagements with the constituents involved in other to resolve whether or not the policy is better of mandatory or optional.
Life insurance policy is not by force for both public and civil servants so we ask the government not to cast a slur on its hard earned reputation just because of this hasty leniency error intervention. Tell us who benefits from the insurance proceeds after the substantive contributes are done with their one year of service to our beloved country? Is there going to be a refund? If yes I ask whether it comes with an interest? the questions goes on and on. We better come clear on issues for we won’t allow ourselves to be cheated.
For you to feel our pain note that this will inconvenience a lot of us, we ask the authorities to banish all inclinations to this self-centeredness and bear in mind that “a tool may be less functional when only the owner benefits from it”. The speed at which this policy is been passed is unjust. one must know that Injustice is counter productive and Injustice puts people in disequilibrium or despondency.
No one wants to be treated unfairly for unfair treatments always has implications on corporate reputation and organisational branding. I cracked the whip because what is meant for good is shrouded with countless irregularities and inconsistencies and for that matter we the hard-working service personnel are not happy with this straight jacket intervention and I posit that for effectiveness and peaceful implementation the Government should go back to the drawing board and build a more flexible, unified ,bolder and stronger approach of implementing this policy with the about to be elected NASPA EXECUTIVES across board , state clear cut conditionalities of the purported life insurance policy, educate personnel about the policy and finally make room for those interested to apply and those who don’t want to be enrolled on the policy to be left alone since ones contribution determines whether or not one is a beneficiary , we as a nation cannot be making jokes out of every serious social problem and the flaws it generates, Do not rape the system.
National Service Personnel are dissatisfied with this life insurance policy approach and ask that the Government treats this issue with a posture of urgency and Rather make reforms in the policy for it to be OPTIONAL and not MANDATORY, THANK YOU.

She smuggled drug into the United States and was arrested and incarcerated for 18 months. This is criminal and has nothing to do with her condition. Bipolar is not an unending insanity where at all times you cannot distinguish between what’s right and wrong.
Same girl sleeps around with a tall list of “cheap men” who obviously saw her provocative videos and wanted a bite–that’s not criminal but has nothing to do with bipolar!
The girl has an episode (which is not even established yet) and lists the names of those men who slept with her and people say because she has a bipolar she should not be taken seriously in this regard.
With all the people in the world: how come only those names were mentioned? Did she mention Mark Zuckerberg’s name, Bishop Obinim or even mine?
If the United States court did not find her insane, and threw her inoto jail at the time of committing an offence, what makes anyone thinks that when she was sleeping with these people she was insane?
Nana Korkor is not permanently insane: she is normal most times. It’s when the disorder sets in that she can be said to be “insane” during that period.
Therefore, not everything she does or say ought to be disregarded or discredited. I don’t doubt that those names really had something to do with her, based on balance of probabilities and available public information about these people.
And the names are: Kojo Yankson of Joy Fm, Giovanni Calab of Starr Fm, FlashKick (Jasmine Boroudi’s boyfriend), KOD, Sammy Awuku and others!
I know a happily married “bipolar” woman! You think she cannot distinguish her husband from everyone else even if she has an episode?
Abena “was” a Teaching Assistant at the University for Christ sake–stop the she is “MAD” nonsense as if she’s always “MAD”
Chris-Vincent Agyapong Febiri Writes
Desperate times they say call for desperate measures and for UTV’s Ama Sarpong Kumankuma, when she reached the end of the line some years ago, she realised she needed something extra to get results.
Taking a step of faith, she undertook a three-day dry fast and went on her knees to pray for divine intervention and that action is what landed her her first major radio job with Okay FM in Accra.
Narrating what happened four years ago when Showbiz caught up with her at work, Ama said, “How I ended up working for the Despite Group Of Companies is a miraculous one. You know in December, firms don’t usually like to employ but my story was different.
“I was employed in the second week of December 2012 and before I went to meet Fadda Dickson, General Manager of Despite Group of Companies, I had done a dry-fast for three days. When it ended, I went straight to the front desk of Peace FM. The receptionist asked me if I had an appointment with him(Dickson) and I lied and said yes.
“When I met him, he asked me to do some voice recordings but he never came down to listen to me so I left. The next day, I went back to to see him and this time, I followed him everywhere he went until he gave in.”
Continuing she said, “We went to the studio together and as soon as I started, he stepped out and returned with a newspaper and asked me to do a live review. After a few minutes, he asked when I could start work and I said that same day. But he asked me to start the next day and that was the turning point for me. My life has never been the same since then.”
Before the Okay FM job, Ama Sarpong Kumankuma had a stint with Hot FM also in Accra and one other radio station in the Central Region where she didn’t like the conditions.
Ama has now transitioned from radio to UTV and is one of the recognisable faces on the screen. She does the newspaper review on the Morning Show, Adekye Nsoroma and reads the news, but she is perhaps best known for hosting the discussion segment on their weekend telenovalas where she uses the tagline ‘Alagege.’
“My initial interest was to do radio and I did that for two years. Then one day, they needed someone to go to the market to get the public’s views on the most popular telenovela at the time, Wild At Heart (aka Marie Cruz) and I opted to go. That was how I took over,” she said.
Ama told Showbiz her past circumstance and current success she is enjoying has not gone to her head at all. Instead, it has strengthened her relationship with God.
“God has been good to me and I am now into Him even more than ever. My past is really bad. I have had to live in an uncompleted building with my family, I have been accused of stealing by a pastor’s wife because I was staying with them, I have had to sell fried yam and beef.
“I remember my siblings and I were nicknamed Africa Queen. At that time, that was the mackerel in season and we had credited so much that it became our second name. At a point, no one was ready to sell to us because we owed so much,” the first of six children stated.
“Now I do not joke with my prayers and I have time for God. I will never forget His blessings and I always make Him my priority.”
She encouraged people to have faith in God or whatever it is they believe in because miracles still exist.

Legal practitioner Maurice Ampaw says incessant loud moaning during sex is a crime which must be punished.
According to him, moaning infringes on the rights of others and must be stopped.
“Why is it that you are having sex and I cannot sleep? In a compound house, they are having sex with you and everybody cannot sleep, you are infringing upon their rights to privacy and you are committing a crime and a wrong to them because you are committing what we call sexual nuisance,” he said.
The legal practitioner told Joy FM that, “Everything that makes noise, everything that makes you uncomfortable is a nuisance.”
The controversial lawyer explained that, “There are some girls when they are having sex and you are passing on the streets, you will hear them moaning and screaming.”
“The worst ones are the men, if you are a man and you are having sex too and you are talking and moaning…can’t you control yourself? You should have self-control,” he said. “When animals are having sex do you hear them moaning like that?”
Maurice Ampaw recounted an experience in Koforidua in the Eastern region where he could not get sleep because of the excessive noise being made by a couple having sex at a hotel he was lodging at.
“After I had finished with a hard day’s work at 7 o’clock I checked into my room and this guy and this girl came to town to chill…and they came to also rest…I was lying down before I could realize, [their] bed [was making noise] and then I woke up, I could not sleep and the girl was giving commentary,” he narrated.
The legal practitioner, who was clearly not amused by the experience, said the couple punished him because he was also in the mood and he didn’t have anybody to have sex with.
“If you are enjoying, enjoy but don’t come and infringe on [my rights]…We must put a stop to it,” Maurice Ampaw concluded.
