Ras Kuuku ghana music awardsRas Kuuku, who was confident of winning an award in the Reggae/Dancehall categories at the 2017 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, stormed out of the Accra International Conference Centre after losing out to colleague Stonebwoy. He and his management resorted to screaming out claims of unfairness, and cronism during the event until they eventually walked out of the auditorium. Ras Kuuku felt that the VGMA made it to hard for lesser known artists to won against the the bigger and popular artists, no matter how hard they work and make an impact in the industry. Before walking through the exit, he turned around and called organisers thieves in Twi.  VVIP member Zeal obviously noticed this, for as he went up to receive the prize for Group of the Yea with VVIP, he remarked that it was pointless to be angry at losing out on an award, but to work harder for it next year.

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.
