Samini - My Own Samini – My Own[/caption] Samini, in a radio interview with Kwame Bee on Kasapa 102.5fm has hinted, his next album will be strictly Reggae. The top notch performer and prolific songwriter who returned from the USA few days ago after playing some concerts abroad is enjoying a massive response for his latest single “My Own” produced by DJ Frass in Jamaica on the Reggae Fest Riddim officially, which hosted other heavy names like Tarrus Riley, Richie Spice, I-Octane, Jesse Royal, Chris Martin, Etana and others https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C0jF8519TTQ&feature=youtu.be “It is time for matured music, #MyOwn is a sneak pick for the next phase of things to happen. The fans should watch out for a complete Reggae project — my next album, it will be strictly Reggae,” Samini disclosed. His thoughts on Reggae Music: “If you listen to most of our Ghanaian Highlife music, one of the key elements you will find in Highlife is the Reggae rhythm. There are examples of Ghanaian musicians who have done that. The likes of Kojo Antwi, Amakye Dede, the late Daasebre Gyamenah who have several hit songs that are Reggae infused. So those of us who grew up listening to those, easily gravitated to that. Most of the records we listened to were Reggae and that makes it easier for you as a Ghanaian to do Reggae. Even with the historical connection of Reggae points to that.” https://youtu.be/bbtwYSLo3qo Samini further added that, “doing Reggae music in Ghana and surviving that market is very hard. Those of our Ghanaian artistes who have made it with Reggae (huge on the international scene) are Rocky Dawuni, Black Prophet, just to mention a few — and they had to leave the shores of Ghana to sacrifice a good number of years for Reggae. It’s not easy to push pure Reggae here, so when I started, I had to infuse a lot more Ghana-flavoured stuff like the Twi, Ga, Dagaati and others.”]]>

Rev Obofour and his bodyguards, garbed in black outfits, made their presence known when they showed up at the funeral in their numbers.

It’s unclear where the funeral was held, however, several reports suggested it was held in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region of Ghana.

Last week, Rev Obofuor smoked the peace pipe with the founder of the International God’s Way Church.

The two surprised many after Reverend Obofour called Angel Obinim on national television to ask of the date of his father’s funeral after honouring his official invitation.

According to Reverend Obofour, though he had disagreements and conflicts with Angel Obinim in the past, they have since remained close friends and brothers in the ministry.

“We have to be present there. There would be lots of pastors and he is my brother… there is no way I can be happy about his father’s demise. I will go and support him because I know how it feels like to lose a father,” Rev. Obofour said.

Earlier, ‘Angel’ Daniel Obinim sent a word of caution to Obofour indicating that Ghana will not be able to contain both of them if he fails to stop peddling falsehood about him.

However after a long break from creating funny videos, BogaGH appears missing on the radar.

“I know a lot of people have forgotten about me because I took a break from the funny videos scene.

For those who are on top at the moment, they shouldn’t get too comfortable, because I may return soon,” BogaGH remarked in a chat.

He also hinted that fans should expect to see him soon in a Netflix movie.

Known in real life as Bryant Nana Kwaku Appiah, BogaGH was born in Wood Green, North London but grew up in Mpraeso in the Eastern Region of Ghana.
