ghana music Awards 2017The Ghana Music Awards suffered its biggest setback in its 18-year history last Saturday and now we have an official statement on the issue from the organizers, Charter House. Read statement below: The very prestigious 18th Vodafone Ghana Music Awards came off yesterday, as planned at the Accra International Conference Centre. Unfortunately the event couldn’t start at the scheduled time, due to some unprecedented major challenges we faced with the power supply to the conference centre. The facility could not supply us with stable electricity from ECG and their over 1000KVA standby generator also couldn’t stay on for more than 15minutes. At exactly 8.40pm, just at the strike of the drum for the amazing opening performance by the Accra Symphony Orchestra and Lumina, we suddenly lost all power losing some equipment in the process. The fluctuations that would follow are simply unprecedented and inexplicable. Regrettably the event started 2 hours later than scheduled; for which we are deeply sorry. From the bottom of our hearts we will like to apologize to all our viewers across Africa on DSTV, GOTV, GhOneTV, TV3, TVAfrica and Joy prime on Multi TV. The biggest kudos will go to the patrons that came out in their thousands to witness this annual phenomenon and be part of what had been well thought out, well planned and well rehearsed to be a memorable night. You were simply the best audience ever; considerate, matured and very understanding. We could not thank you enough for your patience and understanding. We on our part will be engaging with the management of the facility (Conference Centre) to investigate exactly what happened on the night mainly to ensure that it does not happen again. We will share our findings with you. Despite the very daunting challenges, the show must go on and indeed, it did go on with outstanding performances and award presentations. Congratulations to all nominees and award winners. To God be the Glory! Signed CharterHouse Productions”]]>

Police brutality is slapping someone cooperating and already in cuffs – musician NY Melody

NY Melody

The Ghana Police Service arrested 29 people on Tuesday after dispersing a violent anti-cost protest in Accra with tear gas. The protest took a turn for the worse when protesters engaged in a violent exchange with police, injuring 12 officers and leading to the arrest of some of the protesters.

Following the incident, many Ghanaians, both inside and outside the country, have come out to condemn the police and protesters’ violent actions.

One video that went viral from the incident showed a police officer beating a handcuffed protester who was clearly not resisting arrest. The video sparked an online outrage, with “Be My Love” singer NY Melody among those quick to condemn the officer’s actions.

The musician later posted a video in which he expressed his disappointment at seeing the video. For him, the police officer was abusing his authority, and slapping someone who was already handcuffed was completely unnecessary.

“We live in a democracy, and in a democracy, we have the right to demonstrate when something bothers us.” The police, also known as “Peace Officers,” are supposed to keep the peace and order no matter what environment they are in.”

Imagine what would have happened if the protesters had retaliated in response to the slap. The cops should have known better; they should have some emotional intelligence. “Police brutality is slapping someone already in cuffs who isn’t resisting arrest.” he said.
