Epixode advocates for Reggae and Dancehall genres to be separated

Published

on

Reggae dancehall recording artist, creative director and fine arts painter Epixode has advised that the Reggae and Dancehall genre should both be separated.

His reason being that, both genres are different and thus the artistes should be awarded separately based on their music genre.

Talking to Foster Romanus on e.TV Ghana’s Late Nite Celebrity Show he said, “I feel like there are some artistes who are solely reggae artistes and that person might be big on the reggae scene but it might also be that we are super vibrant when it comes to dancehall because dancehall is like super vibrant than reggae it’s not like in the east where reggae is more dominant than dancehall here, dancehall is dominant”.

Citing an example he said, “So the reggae artiste might have done very well and will be in the same category as the dancehall artiste but it’s only in Ghana that both are being merged although there is a very big difference between both genres”.

Talking about the differences between both he said, “For me I’ll say that, dancehall is more like a son or grandson of reggae. They both come from Jamaica and before reggae there was a genre called Ska then there was rock study, then they gave birth to reggae then it also gave birth to genres like lovers rock, one drop and dance”.

Epixode stated that, although both carry the same messages like positivity, suffering, elevation and more, dancehall adds some vibrance to it.

“So I think both are a bit different and it will only be fair to separate the two when giving awards so that every artiste in each sector can be seen and light will be thrown on those artistes” he mentioned.

UPNMG Refutes Malicious Claims Made Against Its Leadership

Published

on

The Union of Professional Nurses and Midwives Ghana (UPNMG) has
refuted some malicious claims made against the association’s
leadership.

This comes after a wrier on Opera News with the name OBENFOBRIGHT, who
claimed to be a former member of the UPNMG and amongst many other
things, alleged that the Union doesn’t assist its members who fall
sick.

However, in a statement, the leadership of the UPNMG vehemently
refuted the claims, describing them as malicious.

“We want to state emphatically that, the faceless individual who could
not reveal his identity has never been a member of the UPNMG and
obviously knows nothing about the activities of the union but is
rather on a fruitless mission to destroy the hard-earned reputation
built by the organization over the years to satisfy his pay masters,”
a section of the statement said.

Meanwhile, the UPNMG went ahead to outline some of the intervention
schemes it has rolled out for its members.

“The Union of Professional Nurses and Midwives Ghana is the first
trade Union within our noble profession to have instituted a loan
scheme for members and this loan is running at 11%.

“Anyone who speaks ill of this initiative must definitely beconsidered
an enemy of the profession because this has been a life-saving policy
that has helped thousands of Nurses and Midwives across this country.
Interestingly, they are now saying the interest rate is high when they
initially said it wasn’t even possible to run such a scheme for
members less than a year ago.

The statement added: “Apart from the loan scheme, the Union is again
the first to commence a hire purchase for members and that has been
running since its inception in May 2020. Again, we can boast of being
the first ever union within our profession to insure all our members
at no extra cost. That means no members pay any extra money for this
insurance policy.

“The union behind these malicious claims has been in existence for the
past 60 years and has done nothing for nurses and midwives. Our
presence has since kept the kitchen boiling and has made life very
uncomfortable for them, and hence these calculated attempts to dirty
the name of the union.”
