Makeba Boateng and Confidence HaugenAn Accra Fast Track High Court has granted an ex parte application brought against sexy socialite and entrepreneur, Confidence Haugen to stop using a logo she is currently using for her Konfidence fashion line. In September 2012, Confidence launched her fashion line which is made up shoes, bags and accessories.The launch was attended by Confidence’s friend, Makeba Boateng who has taken the legal action against her.  The court, presided over by Justice Cecilia H Sowah, placed a restraining order after  Makeba Boateng, who owns Keba Clothing, sued Confidence for infringing on her intellectual property rights having created and actively used and popularized the logo since 2002. The court ordered the cessation of the use of her “K” with a butterfly logo for the Konfidence Fashion Limited and its products. According to the court, Makeba has been duly acknowledged by the Registrar General’s Department as being first-in-time to initiate the process to register the logo under the country’s trade mark laws.   The Logo The Logo Makeba popularly known together with her clothing line logo in the industry as Keba, according to her lawyers, personally alerted Confidence when the defendant sought advice from her in July 2011 about how to go about the clothing business. Her lawyers said, Makeba revealed to the former Big Brother Africa housemate that the logo she intended to use was hers but Confidence did not seem to have taken the advice and has gone as far as to alter the C in name to K just to infringe her intellectual property rights in the logo. Lawyer Samson Lardy Ayenini who argued the application on behalf of his senior Charles Zwennes told the court that the action of the defendant was deliberate and intended to unlawfully supplant the goodwill Keba has enjoyed in the industry and confuse the public. The court granted the order which means from now Confidence is prevented from using the logo for any business until she appears in court to justify why she must be allowed to use it, pending the final determination of the suit. A bailiff is expected to serve Confidence with the order and she has within 21 days to respond. Originally Published by: Myjoyonline]]>

Abladzo Kwame changes name to “Kwame Ye”, drops promo photos to spark new journey

Published

on

Kwame Ye 4

Abladzo Kwame was a loud name for fans of Rap until the Rapper decided to go into hiatus and rebrand. He returns with a new name, Kwame Ye, and also shares new promotional photos to kick off his new found journey.

 

Follow him on his Social Media pages below:

Facebook – Kwame Ye (@KwameYeMusic)

Instagram, X – @KwameYeMusic

 

Stemming from a culture of hardcore hiphop and street rap, Kwame Ye, as he loves to be called in the showbiz circles is unapologetic about his style and presentation of rap culture.

 

Born as Klu Frank, he hails from the Volta Region of Ghana; but primarily grew up in Adenta, a suburb of Greater-Accra where he got inspired to start music as a hobby from childhood. With an unflinchingly real-life perspective, he would be found delivering rap with a gruff rasp influenced by  UK ‘Grime’ and ‘rusty’ beat compositions to fit his style of lyrics.

 

Kwame Ye is a co- founder of a music clique called Kings Capital Music Group (KCMG).

 

“I fell in love with art as the days crept, adding more years to my infant self; and while I grew up, my style and passion got influenced more by my peers and lovers of my music; this pushed me more to work more music, write more music, record more music and perform them as well across different stage. Music became a powerful tool for me to express myself effortlessly”, Kwame Ye intimated. He was formerly known as Abladzo Kwame, and would later pick Kwame ye as his newly found space after a new dawn of transformation and revitalisation.

 

“HipLife and Highlife were my foundation and first influences; both served as therapeutic sounds for me and led me into producing and writing my own music, and exploring other styles (genres)”, he added.

 

“I would say my style of music is a Fusion of Rap and Afro-Soul; and to keep my origins I use a lot of my native dialect, Ewe, for almost every song I churn out” –Kwame Ye.

 

Kwame Ye recorded his first song with Skillions (a Ghana-based music clique cum label) at their recording studio titled “Bossu”, featured on by Boynash, a London-based Ghanaian Rapper.

Kwame ye has scored some feats working with notable Ghanaian artistes like Edem, Gemini Orleans, Nektunez, just to name a few. He also doubles a Fashion Designer who pieces together all kinds of fabrics, creatively, as another form of gifted art.

His global influences? Kanye West, Akon, Lil Wayne, Da Hammer, Nektunez fall on his list of favourites he gets inspired by with their works.

Gary Hughton 754x424 1

Lionel Messi picked up the Best Men’s Player award for the third time since this format of the awards began in 2016, after doing so in 2019 and 2022.

A mix of votes from national team managers and captains, journalists and fans on Fifa’s website – with each counting for 25% – were used to decide the winners.

For Ghana, this is how Black Stars coach Chris Hughton and Gary Al-Smith (representing the media) voted for the best player category.

Hughton voted Messi as his first choice, Mbappe in second while Haaland was given the third spot.

Al-Smith, however, opted for Haaland as the first option with City’s Rodri and Victor Osimhen following accordingly.

Messi and Haaland finished on the same points, with the former getting the award as he had more first-place nominations from national team captains.

The Argentina captain was named men’s player of the year at the 2023 Fifa Best Awards in London on Monday, January 15.

The Inter Miami forward beat competition from Manchester City striker Erling Haaland with Paris St-Germain attacker Kylian Mbappe coming third.

He scored nine goals for PSG as they won the French Ligue 1 title and 10 goals in seven games as Inter Miami won the inaugural Leagues Cup in the United States.
