Social media users have referred to a previous video Beverly Afaglo made about people trying to destroy her marriage to say she is well to do, and so does not need any such support from the public.

Abu Iddris, Beverly Afaglo’s Manager has also written a statement on the matter as follows”

Shame on you all derogatory commenters in this time of despair. Shame on some bloggers and media platforms who chose to see content where there is pain!

Some reported the news on Beverley’s predicament from the angle of A-list celebrities sympathizing and not about what she had suffered. For them, it was about the numbers for trends and never about her situation. It’s a shame what journalism has been reduced to by some.
Now again some bloggers have chosen to push the negative comments on the fundraiser by some heartless people rather than the fundraiser itself for its cause. This brings me to wonder if some people even think or care. some typical Ghanaian bloggers, loudmouths, and empty heads; who rely heavily on bad news, people’s pain, and predicaments to go viral. A media house referred to some inhumane commenters as “good people”. Really? Of all that has happened to Beverly and her family? If she had died in the fire with her family, these same people, bloggers and media will be about how good or kind she has been and what what with fake stories. She survived with her family but lost everything and it is a sin or her fault that some friends have started a fundraiser on her behalf? What at all do Ghanaians want?!
Most of you have no iota of idea who Beverly is and what her story is. Some just got their evil-minded crafted stories out there with all bad intentions as content. Well done! The agenda to cause pain and to break a strong soul met with an unfortunate predicament is clear, we wish you all you wish for yourselves. May your evil goals be met.
To all those derogatory commenters on such a painful loss. Read this and learn something you did not know.
Beverly Afaglo never wanted to approve any fundraiser on her behalf. Her family has been by her side with support from the very moment she lost everything in that fire. In less than six hours she had a place to lay her head as well as a few items for personal upkeep. It didn’t come as a surprise to us because Beverly goes all out to help others.
That very night, right in front of me;  the family discussed on which of their properties to eject a tenant or two from, for Beverly to occupy. They have quite some joint inheritance they make money from as a family. Beverly retorted “no”! She couldn’t allow herself to be the reason a tenant or two will suddenly be under pressure to evacuate. Such a heart! She does not deserve all being said at her simply because some friends decided to set up a fundraiser on her behalf.
I can say for a fact that with or without the fundraiser, Beverly will rise again.
I practically had to force her to give us a go-ahead to accept support after the number of calls and messages I was getting from the “real good people” all around the world overwhelmed me.
These real good people who chose to support are being referred to as” Crazy” by one blogger who only pries on people’s downfall to having content. Shm.
As I was saying, a lot of people who called prayed for her situation, others insisted on supporting her and they are asking how. I discussed that with her and she said ‘no’! She has her family so she will be fine.
She was willing to rely only on her family and balance to bounce back even if it takes a while.
I had to inform her family about people wanting a way to support her. Plus, we got a screenshot of scammers posting a MoMo support number even when we had not officially announced one. All these included, we decided to accept support from the public.
After all even the ocean accepts rainwater when it comes.
Beverly is human, she is not filthy rich and she never claims to be. She was comfortable and yes she was not broke! And not being broke does not denote being filthy rich unless a writer had an ulterior motive. Get it clear, Until the fire that exhumed everything Beverly was never broke, she was comfortable just like her siblings. She hustles hard for her money with her husband doing his part.
She mentioned Yvonne Nelson’s plan to set up a Gofundme and she wasn’t sure if she wanted that. I am guessing she had in mind what some mindless storyless directionless bloggers, and some of you heartless derogatory social media commenters; can do. I told her to let it because what she had lost was a great deal. When we “say” she lost ”everything” we mean everything.
Her office running B.A.B handyman had only documents kept there. Everything else about her business was at home- including products we had just restocked for @celebrityhall shop and other materials and equipment for her new sharwama business we intended to roll out soon. Goods shipped into the country which was stored in two empty big rooms for our go-big plan in 2022 were all lost in the fire. A great percentage of her investment we liquified for a big move. Have a tenth look at the flames if you find the video and you will see it was not an empty house blazing.
See! I am talking too much. Any other person in her shoes will probably give up on this life but here she is firm after crying for a few hours.
I believe she needs the support if she plans to get back on her feet sooner. If not; as she had wanted; it may take a little while but she will bounce back regardless.
LEAVE BEVERLY ALONE!, we are not asking for your money you derogatory commenters. we have not held anyone at gunpoint to donate to us, YOU HAVE A CHOICE to donate or not. We simply opened up for the real good people who insisted. If you won’t support keep your money. We wish you the best. And just maybe if some of you have a problem with her and want to drag her name into mud, at least have some decency and leave her family out of it.

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.

This is How Chris Hughton and Gary Al-Smith voted on behalf of Ghana at FIFA Best 2023 Player Awards

Published

on

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.
