kwabena kwabenaManagement of prolific high life artist Kwabena Kwabena has come out to clear their outfit and their artist concerning a story that broke about Kwabena Kwabena being sued by a UK based event organizer for fraud.

Nelson Ashong, online manager from KBKB Music in an interview revealed, “The story that broke came with details of the contract Gye Nyame Entertainment – the company in the UK and us – KBKB Music signed. And the story says they are going to sue Kwabena Kwabena instead of suing the label that signed the contract on behalf of the artist. Kwabena Kwabena has no dealings personally with Gye Nyame because he didn’t sign the contract, his label signed it and so why do you want to sue him instead of the label that signed the contract as the story suggested?”

“Concerning the artist not showing up in the UK, there was no travel arrangement done so we couldn’t fly to the UK to play the show. If the show was in Tamale and they paid the deposit and fail to secure the traveling tickets, we could afford to fly with our own money to Tamale so the necessary arrangements are done before he hits stage. But this is the UK we talking about, you need work permit visas to be able to go and play a show in the UK.

Gye Nyame failed to secure the work permit visas for the artist and his rider“.

“The whole problem is that Kwabena Kwabena went to the UK to play a show on the 13th of December and returned to Ghana to play a show he was booked for on the 14th and 17th but Gye Nyame wanted Kwabena Kwabena to stay in the UK from the 13th that he had been in the UK for another show till the 21st December which was illegal because his worked permit will have expired by then. We understand it was going to be expensive if we flew down for them to fly us back to the UK but we were obeying the laws of the UK wouldn’t overstay our welcome. So we got to Ghana and asked them to forward to us all the necessary papers so we go for the work permit visas so we can show up for the 21st show but they never sent them.”

“So Gye Nyame and KBKB Music reached another possible deal which was to make Kwabena Kwabena travel alone to the UK and they said they were going to send all the necessary documents so we work on the visa by Wednesday 18th which was prior to the Saturday 21st of December. And they said they could get everything sorted before Monday 16th December so Kwabena Kwabena flies to the UK before the Saturday and we don’t even do that but because Gye Nyame was a charity company and several industry personalities we respect had called Kwabena Kwabena personally to talk him into going for the show which was also not right in a way, but out of the respect we decided to let the artist fly alone to play the show but as Gye Nyame had promised, they couldn’t sort out the travel papers so Kwabena couldn’t fly to play the show.”

“And now Gye Nyame Entertainment is telling everyone they are suing Kwabena Kwabena for fraud. If you have a deal with an artist’s management and there is breach of contract, you go for the company that breached the contract and not the artist on the label whom you wanted for your show. It’s KBKB Music that signed the dotted lines and not Kwabena Kwabena. So why is Gye Nyame suing Kwabena Kwabena?”
“If you book an artist and you claim you had his travel arrangements sorted, it means you have his visas ready and work permit ready and why didn’t you put that one too out?”.

“Now the label has talked to Gye Nyame Entertainment and we have agreed to pay the refund of the deposit but they claim they want to claim damages for not appearing for the show as a headline artist. The show went on and the fans are not on Kwabena Kwabena’s neck for disappointing them but Gye Nyame wants KBKB Music to pay for damages when they don’t have prove to back why they deserve the damages they are claiming. They say they don’t want a refund.”

“Gye Nyame also put up the fee agreed for the contract online and we slashed the price to that extent because Gye Nyame begged behind closed doors and we understood they were a charity organization too and had to make it possible for the show to happen. We charge more than they put online but we understood Gye Nyame Entertainment had that little for the show and so considered.”

“Gye Nyame says we will hear from their lawyers and we are looking forward to that to show our lawyers to advise us.”

“We at KBKB Music want everyone to know Kwabena Kwabena takes instruction from the label and so if you have a problem or whatsoever, you talk or sue the label and not the artist.”

We'll Roast You at NEW Year Comedy Night, Send us to Court - DKB to Kurt Okraku

The annual New Year Comedy Night will kick off the 2023 event calendar in January. To start the new year, the event will return with even funnier and rib-cracking jokes.

Slated for January 2, 2023 at the La Palm Royal Hotel. Ahead of the show, Comedian and Headliner for the event, DKB has sent a message to the Ghana Football Association President; Mr Kurt Okraku.

The comedian won’t hold back when discussing the Ghana Black Stars and their recently concluded World Cup campaign. DKB asserts that he is prepared to appear in court because on January 2nd, he will roast the President, despite the GFA having warned that people would be prosecuted if they disparaged the GFA and The Black Stars.

“We will roast him [Kurt Okraku] come Monday January 2 2023 at the New Year Comedy Night event. On the night we [Comedians] will dive into all that happened in 2022 which fortunately Kurt Okraku and the Black Stars actively participated in.” He said.

“Yes I am aware of the letter that was published by the GFA, but it wouldn’t intimidate us into cowering and not speak about GFA and The Black Stars. We are ready to go to court because we will roast Him [Kurt Okraku].” He added.

There will be great performances by OB Amponsah, Lekzy DeComic, Foster Romanus, Jeneral Ntatia, Parrot Mouth, Putogo, and MjTheComedian with music from Sista Afia and Cina Soul. The show will be hosted by Kejetia Lawyer Nti.

They say I do money laundering – Mercy Eke of BBNaija

They say I do money laundering - Mercy Eke of BBNaija

Reality Star, Mercy Eke sits with Chude Jideonwo, host of the viral TV show, #WithChude to discuss accusations the media peddle against her and life after Big Brother Naija.

On her choice to respond to the blogger who claimed she slept with IVD, she shared, “This blogger has been on my case since forever. This person has tarnished my image more than anything, and I have never responded. This started when I was in the house. When this whole thing started, I saw that one of my fans released something where this blogger asked for 200,000 naira, and they did not give the person. And the blogger vowed that he or she will deal with me. But now, I am not in the house, you can’t deal with me based on whoever was handling my page. I didn’t even know about it because, they cleaned it up. When they handed over my phone to me, I didn’t see a lot of things, so I couldn’t pay for what I did not know. And since then, I have not rested. There is no story that this blogger has not involved me, till that one, I won’t respond. But this one, someone just died, there is a case of domestic violence, and I know this woman, we are friends. Then something that I know nothing about, you just brought my name out of nowhere and say that I am sleeping with this person”.
“That is the first and last time, I am going to respond to something, but I needed to respond to that one, she added.
Mercy also shared her thoughts about Phyna being the second woman to win the reality TV show.

“Honestly speaking, I have been waiting on someone to take on that role, let that pressure move, I want to rest. I want another person to come and take it, let the blogs focus on this person. Because I know when someone comes, at least I will rest.

She also reacted to the stigma successful women have to deal with, “It is very offensive. I feel that it is taking away all the efforts, the sleepless night, all the hard work we women put to get together where we are. They will just take away all effort and tag it as someone is behind you. I am not saying it is bad to have someone behind, if you have a rich boyfriend, some people’s love language might be taking care of you, buying you nice things, and giving you money. However, you will still work hard. They said I do money laundering; they have dealt with me in this industry. I came into this industry without no advice, just myself and my team and I started building brand.

On her motivation to be in the Big Brother house, she shared, “I auditioned four times. I just have that voice in me that says, ‘this is where you will make it’. So, each year when they say, ‘‘try again next year’. I still have that thing in my head that, ‘Okay, I will try’. Back then it was just to be famous”.
