Van Vicker condemns Shirley Ayokor-Botchwey’s unfortunate comment against John Dumelo

Published

on

Actor Van Vicker who is rarely known to be commenting on issues in the public domain, has come out to air his discontentment following a comment from the Minister for foreign affairs, Shirley Ayokor Botchwey, who is also the member of parliament for Anyaa-Sowutuom.

The latter made a comment against actor and aspiring MP for the Ayawso west Wuoguon constituency, John Dumelo. Hon. Shirley Ayokor Botchwey advised constituents of Ayawaso West Wuogon to vote for the NPP’s parliamentary candidate, and not Dumelo in the upcoming December 7 election.

“Parliament is a serious place, it is not a place for actors who think they are popular, so they can have a place there. Don’t make a mistake by giving him that chance,” she said.

Van Vicker who was not happy about the unfortunate comment made by the minister, took to his Instagram page to express his view, and asked his colleague actors and actresses to demand apology from the minister.

“This post is NOT about NPP or NDC, it is about what the Hon. Shirley Ayorkor, the Foreign Minister of Ghana said about actors; what she said to a colleague actor @johndumelo1.

“Now all my creative arts colleagues should be resentful at her utterance and demand an apology, for what she said is indeed racist, discriminatory and such bigotry SHOULD NO LONGER be perpetuated in dividing us as a people.

“To put it mildly, who is the ‘UNSERIOUS PERSON’? is it…The ‘SERIOUS PERSON’ who watches movies & listens to music MADE BY the ‘UNSERIOUS PERSON’?

“Or is it…The ‘UNSERIOUS PERSON’ who COMPELLS the ‘SERIOUS PERSON’ to do dance moves and recall movie scenes during conversations?

“Your guess is as good as mine.

“The crux of my post again, is not about NPP or NDC. It is about pronouncements that CAN POTENTIALLY cause chaos. If one sees reasons not to use ethnicity, religion or race, etc. as a platform to galvanise people, I opine the same reasons be applied to occupations.

“If one wishes to apply the ad hominem fallacy during an argument then so be it because one will only have an individual to deal with, but, do not consciously pull in the hasty generalization fallacy, because one will have a whole industry to deal with.

“Madam Ayorkor, you are one of my favorite ministers but the one thing you do not want is to have actors & musicians against you, recall DUMSOR.

“We are more popular than you, to say the least and WE ARE EXTREMELY ‘SERIOUS PEOPLE’. Long Live Democracy Long Live Ghana,” Van wrote.

Published

on

Hip-hop is one of the most loved musical genres in the world and Ghana is no exception to this rule and as the music keeps evolving, so do the creative artists behind the songs. Dedebah is one of the first names that come to mind when the topic in discussion is “Ghanaian Female Rappers”. Dedebah is a very versatile rapper who does not shy away from any challenge. Her sound has gained massive recognition from top blogs and major industry players including hip-hop heavyweights Sarkodie, Medikal, amongst others.

Dedebah is at the pinnacle of her career where she deems it a necessity to give her fans a full body project instead of the occasional singles. Last year she took to social media to announce her maiden EP dubbed “Bosompemaa”. The anticipation for this project has gone through the roof with fans being eager to get their hands on this EP. The African Rap Diva decided to stop fans from lingering anymore by putting out the first major single off the “Bosompemaa EP” titled “Have Fun With It”.

“Have Fun With It” is a groovy hip-hop song with a very catchy and melodic hook. In the first verse she shows off her lyrical prowess. She can be heard saying in local dialect twi “Bosompemaa, mey3 ohemaa” which is simply to remind the listener of the Queen that she is, with no other person being at par with her. The song is produced by Riddim Boss and the video was shot by Director Banitchi.

Stream and enjoy !!

“Have Fun With It” is available on all major digital music stores via this link https://distrokid.com/hyperfollow/dedebah/have-fun-with-it
